Dear EURAM members and friends,

Join us in Reykjavik 20 – 23rd of June 2018 for the EURAM conference!

With our theme Research in Action, we invite you to participate in debate about how to accelerate knowledge creation in management. The idea is to empower researchers to explore the state of research and experiment, with the aim of creating new insights.
Let’s meet at the School of Business at the University of Iceland, ideally located in the centre of the vibrant city of Reykjavik. We aim to provide a memorable experience for scholars, practitioners, and doctoral students, to share and discuss their most recent high-quality work with other experts in their research fields. The more detailed programme of our stimulating, interactive keynotes and roundtables, workshops, symposia, and much more, will be posted on our website in due time.

To submit your full paper to EURAM 2018: 

I. Explore the tracks sponsored by one of the 13 EURAM Strategic Interest Groups (SIGs) or by the 2018 Local Conference Committee and choose the topic and community that corresponds the best with your research.

II. Please respect the deadlines, especially the paper submission deadline: 10 January 2018 -   2 pm Belgian time.

III. Please, comply with the authors’ guidelines.

I.  Explore our SIGs and tracks (for more detail click on the SIG title)

For newcomers to our community: Our 13 SIGs are the building blocks of EURAM. SIG Chairs and Officers nurture communities of scholars who are engaged in specific research areas. Standing tracks are ongoing conversations that you can join and which will continue within a SIG for a number of years. Tracks that are listed as “2018 Tracks” have been selected in a competitive submission and review process (they may become standing tracks in the future if they prove to be of continued interest). Each SIG General Track invites contributions from all areas related to the SIG specific research area but which are not explicitly covered by other tracks within the SIG.

II. Deadline

Please respect the deadlines, especially the paper submission deadline: 10 January 2018 - 2 pm Belgian time.

III. Authors’ Guidelines

As an author, it is crucial to follow the guidelines and formatting instructions to prepare and submit your paper in order to have it published in proceedings.


Each individual is limited to one personal appearance on the programme as a presenting author. This policy precludes acceptance of papers for more than one presentation. In other words, an author can submit and present only one paper. However, a presenter can always be a non-presenting co-author on additional papers.

Please read the instructions carefully prior to submitting:

  1. Each paper can only be submitted to ONE track.
  2. Submitted papers must NOT have been previously published and if under review, must NOT appear in print before EURAM 2018 Conference.
  3. To facilitate the blind review process, remove ALL authors identifying information, including acknowledgements from the text, and document/file properties. (Any submissions with author information will be automatically DELETED; author information and acknowledgements are to be included in a SEPARATE document).
  4. The entire paper (title page, abstract, main text, figures, tables, references, etc.) must be in ONE document created in PDF format.
  5. The maximum length of the paper is 40 pages (including ALL tables, appendices and references). The paper format should follow the European Management Review Style Guide.
  6. Use Times New Roman 12-pitch font, double spaced, and 1-inch (2.5 cm) margin all around.
  7. Number all of the pages of the paper.
  8. No changes in the paper title, abstract, authorship, track and actual paper can occur AFTER the submission deadline.
  9. Check that the PDF File of your paper prints correctly and ensure that the file is virus-free. Submissions will be done on-line on the EURAM 2018. The submission link will be opened on 1st December.
  10. Only submissions in English shall be accepted for review.
  11. In case of acceptance, the author or one of the co-authors should be available to present the paper at the conference. A presenting author can only present one paper at the conference.
  12. If you submit a paper, you agree to review at least two papers for EURAM 2018.
For more information, we invite you to visit the conference website: Should you have any hesitation on which track to select for your paper, you may wish to contact a track chair by email to find the best fit for your submission.
Last but not least, Reykjavik is a very popular destination at the time of the conference, we therefore encourage you to book a hotel as early as possible with the option “no cancellation fees”.


Best wishes,

On behalf of the Conference Programme Committee (CPC) and the Local Organising Committee (LOC)
