The Accounting, Behavior and Organizations Section invites you to the 2017 Research Conference.
The 2017 ABO Research Conference will be held at The Westin Convention Center in Pittsburgh on October 6–7. A limited number of rooms have been set aside for conference participants at the rate of $162 per night, single or double occupancy.
Submission and Volunteer Information
The ABO Section will be accepting submissions of research papers in mid-April. Papers may encompass any topical area involving human or organizational behavior. It is our expectation that anyone who submits a paper will also volunteer to review a paper. We will also be in need of volunteers to act as discussants and moderators. ABO section members can volunteer for any of these roles through the electronic submission system. Information on how to submit will be announced soon.
The deadline for submissions is June 16, 2017. There will be a $25 submission fee for all faculty members. NOTE: Doctoral students are not required to pay the submission fee.
Emerging Scholars (i.e., faculty who have graduated within the past three years and doctoral students) are encouraged to submit their work for consideration. Emerging Scholar papers selected for the conference will be assigned to sessions with senior discussants who will provide detailed constructive feedback. Please be sure to indicate in the submission system if you wish your paper to be designated as an Emerging Scholar paper.
Finally, the ABO awards two outstanding paper awards for the conference: Outstanding Manuscript and Outstanding Emerging Scholar Manuscript.
