CALL FOR PAPERS

After 2002 in Växjö, Sweden, 2004 in Edinburgh, UK, 2005 in Vienna, Austria, and 2006 in Toulouse, France, this will be the fifth EIASM “Workshop on International Strategy and Cross-Cultural Management”.

The workshop invites both theoretical and empirical contributions in either International Strategy or Cross-Cultural Management.
We are particularly interested in papers that may help us to enhance the dialogue between these two related, yet somewhat distinct subject areas.

The workshop is organised on the basis of a call for papers, coupled with keynote addresses by invited speakers and the authors of the best papers (one best overall paper and one best paper written by a junior scholar).

Contributions are invited for the following four tracks:

Internationalisation Strategies of Companies
(e.g.: Global Strategy, International Market Entry, Cross-Border Mergers & Acquisitions, Knowledge Management, Strategic Alliances, Greenfields)
Track chair: Professor Chris Carr (ccarr@staffmail.ed.ac.uk)

International Governance and Management Practices
(e.g.: Corporate Governance and Cross-Cultural Management, Shareholder Value vs. Stakeholder Approach, Corporate Finance, Performance Management Practices, International Strategy and Organisation)
Track chair: Professor Gerhard Fink (gerhard.fink@wu- wien.ac.at)

Convergence and Divergence in Management Practices
(e.g. in the following areas: Investment Strategy and Finance, Marketing, Accounting, Organisation, Research & Development and Innovation Management, Production)
Track chair: Dr. Markus Pudelko (Markus.Pudelko@ed.ac.uk)

Managing the Human Factor across Cultures
(e.g.: Motivation, Leadership, Training and Development, Communication and Decision Making)
Track chair: Dr Zeynep Aycan (zaycan@ku.edu.tr)
