Strategy Science Conference

June 15-16, 2018

Pre-Conference Doctoral Workshop June 14th, 2018

Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania

We are pleased to announce the inaugural Strategy Science Conference. The Conference will be held at the Wharton School and is being co-sponsored by the journal Strategy Science and the Mack Institute at the Wharton School. Strategy Science, an INFORMS journal http://pubsonline.informs.org/journal/stsc, is establishing itself as an important voice in the Strategy field, providing an outlet for innovative strategy research tackling central questions in the field. In that spirit, the Conference will provide an opportunity in a “workshop” like environment with a limited number of participants for strategy researchers to share their work with in depth discussions both in the context of the formal paper presentations and panel discussions, and the informal discussions that a small, focused conference offers.

Call for Papers and Panels

The Conference aims to attract a diverse set of work addressing key issues in the strategy field. We invite individual paper contributions as well as proposals for panel sessions. Furthermore, if you are interested in attending the conference as a non-presenter, please submit a brief statement expressing your interest. The application deadline for submissions is February 9th, 2018. Submissions for paper presentations, panel proposals, and statement of interest for non-presenting participation should be submitted by e-mail to StratSciConf2018 .

Among those scholars who have already committed to attend are: Felipe Csaszar (Ross School, University of Michigan), JP Eggers (Stern School, NYU), Emilie Feldman (Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania), Rahul Kapoor (Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania), Samina Karim (D’Amore-Mckim School, Northeastern University), Daniel Levinthal (Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania), Metin Sengul (Carroll School, Boston College), Todd Zenger (Eccles School, University of Utah).

Pre-Conference Doctoral Workshop

We will host a pre-conference day long workshop on June 14th for a limited number of doctoral students, targeted at students who are finishing their course-work and in early stages of dissertation research, but not planning to be on the job market in the 2018-19 academic year. Participants will have a chance to present their work in a small group setting to senior faculty in the field, as well as to participate in broader panel discussions relevant to their research efforts. Applicants should send a brief (3 to 4 page) statement of their research interests and to provide one letter of recommendation from a faculty member along with their CV. Students admitted to the doctoral workshop will be invited to participate in the main conference on that Friday and Saturday. Please send your application to PreStratSci2018 and feel free to email this address with any questions you may have regarding the Doctoral Workshop.
