July 5-6, 2023 – Warsaw, Poland

Submission Deadline Extended to: February 7, 2023

AJBS will hold its 35th Annual Meeting in cooperation with the Academy of International Business (AIB) in Warsaw, Poland. The combined conference will run from July 5–9, 2023. The AJBS Conference is July 5–6, 2023 and the AIB conference is July 6–9, 2023. The Program Chair for this year's conference is Mario Henrique Ogasavara from ESPM Sao Paulo, Brazil.
Why should you participate in both (AJBS and AIB) conferences? With one trip, you can attend both the most prestigious professional meeting in international business and an intimate conference that focuses specifically on Japanese business issues. The AJBS conference provides additional opportunities for journal publication and best paper awards, as detailed below.

About AJBS
From its genesis as an informal network in 1982, AJBS was officially organized and held its first conference at the Wharton Business School in January 1987. AJBS holds annual meetings at venues worldwide, providing an opportunity to discuss current developments and research on a range of business, public policy, and teaching issues related to Japan. Papers for the AJBS conference presentation are double-blind peer-reviewed. Accepted papers are considered for publication in the journal, Asian Business & Management (ABM). AJBS welcomes scholars, students, and practitioners from all disciplinary backgrounds interested in Japanese business issues.

Submission Types
AJBS welcomes two types of submissions: research papers and panel proposals.

Research Paper
Earlier stage papers may be submitted for inclusion in interactive sessions. Later stage, fully developed papers should be submitted for competitive sessions. Please note that the final assignment to interactive or competitive sessions depends on reviewer inputs (blind-review process) and other considerations.
Authors may submit papers to either or both conferences. AJBS will consider submissions that have already been presented elsewhere but not published in a journal or book. Authors are encouraged to consider submitting a paper tailored to the specialized audience at the AJBS conference as well as a modified version appropriate for a wider audience at AIB. As done in past years, we also plan to have one session run by AJBS at the AIB conference.

Panel proposal
Panels should focus on topics relevant to Japanese business. In addition, we welcome issues related to what the rest of the world can learn from Japanese business. The panelists must have appropriate expertise or background to inform the proposed topic. Panel submissions are not blind-review.

Academic Journal & Best Paper Award
Asian Business & Management: In 2003, AJBS established a partnership with the journal Asian Business & Management (ABM), published by Palgrave Macmillan in the U.K. As in recent years, the editor of ABM and the AJBS conference committee will select several papers from this year's conference program to be considered for publication in ABM.
Palgrave Macmillan – AJBS Best Paper Award: Palgrave Macmillan has sponsored a 'Best Paper' prize at the annual AJBS meetings. The Best Paper Committee will review the finalist papers and select the winning paper.
