Next year, the European Academy of Management’s annual conference is being held in Paris. Find the full Call for Papers here, as well as all important dates and everything else you need to know. Of particular interest is Special Interest Group 08: Managing Sport (SPORT).
Deadline for paper submission is January 12, 2016.
The conference coincides with France’s hosting of the UEFA European Championship, which therefore provides a timely opportunity for academic researchers to consider a range of business and management issues pertaining both to the competition itself and to football in general.
Dr Kwame Agyemang (Louisiana State University) and Professor Simon Chadwick, Coventry University Business School, will be running a special session on the business and management of football at the conference.
The session will be organised and run in conjunction with EURAM’s Managing Sport SIG and be supported by the Emerald publication Sport, Business and Management: An International Journal.
It is anticipated that papers presented as part of the session will generally fall into one of the following areas of business and management:
- Event bidding, staging and legacy;
- Competition format and design;
- Ownership, finance and return on investment;
- Globalisation, internationalisation and geopolitical context;
- Media, social media and property rights;
- Governance and industry orientation;
- Talent management and team management.
Other relevant submissions will also be considered.
We will keep you posted on further developments. Please consider submitting something exciting to the conference!! For further information, please contact Simon Chadwick.
