Submission Deadline Extended: Saturday, December 10, 2016

This year’s conference theme is Business and Society: from ambition to impact
Our 2017 Conference takes place Amsterdam, The Netherlands. Amsterdam is the Capital City of The Netherlands and is one of the most multicultural cities in the world with 180 nationalities living in the city. The Netherlands and Dutch companies are frequently cited as amongst the most sustainable nations and firms in the world. The ambitions are very promising leading to many activities and outputs. However, the actual impact on Business and Society of those ambitions is less known. Impact thinking and impact measurement is still an infancy stage.
At a time when fundamental questions are being asked about the role of business in society, and the role of society in business, our conference will focus on the pathway from ambition to impact.
Bringing the best to business and society
The conference theme invites reflection on how our teaching, research and service activities strengthen our business community and our society. During the conference, we will be seeking answers to a variety of questions, including:

- How has our field evolved in its ability to shape the business narrative?
- What must we do as a community of scholars in our research, teaching, and service to strengthen the important institutions in our society?
Our conference provides a forum for scholarly work in various stages of development. It also contributes to establishing an innovative learning community. We invite you to submit the following proposal types:
