2012 Strategic Management Society Conference in PraguePosted: February 21, 2012
Just a reminder to anyone interested (or out of the loop): the deadline to submit something for the October 5-7 Strategic Management Society conference is in two days (Feb 23). This year’s theme is “Strategy in Transition” (here’s the call for proposals). I like SMS’s approach of requesting paper “proposals” (essentially extended abstracts rather than full papers): easier on both the reviewers and authors.
My verdict on SMS? I like the conference. It is quite pricey (the conference fee is a hefty $1000+), but generally the sessions are good. And most of all, it’s fun to interact and meet up with strategy colleagues, co-authors and friends in a somewhat smaller setting (not quite the zoo that the Academy of Management can be — SMS is far more targeted).
And, as a bonus, the locations tend to be excellent. I attended the Rome SMS conference in 2010 and this year’s conference will be held in Prague. Maybe we’ll live blog from the conference this year.
