    Competitive Dynamics Conference 2020 – Call for Papers

    (apologies for cross-postings)

    Dear Colleagues,

    Following the successful inaugural conference on Competitive Dynamics in 2018, hosted by the Queen's University, Canada, we are pleased to invite paper submissions to the second Competitive Dynamics Conference.

    The conference will be held June 1-3, 2020, in Helsinki, Finland. The conference will be hosted by Aalto University in collaboration with the University of Jyväskylä.

    We hope to attract a diverse set of papers geographically, theoretically, and methodologically – as long as they have an explicit focus on some aspect of competition. The papers can include competition at organization, group, or individual level, as well as at the level of groups of organizations (e.g., ecosystems, platforms, meta-organizations). We also welcome papers focused on the relationship between competition and cooperation in and between organizations.

    In addition to a competitive selection of papers, the program includes invited talks by people at the frontier of competitive dynamics scholarship. Our preliminary list of guest speakers include Ming-Jer Chen (University of Virginia), Tomi Laamanen (University of St. Gallen), Riitta Katila (Stanford University), and Mikko Ketokivi (IE Business School).

    The deadline for full paper submissions is February 29th, 2020. The submission should not exceed 40 pages in length using a 12-point font and double-spaced text. References can be single-spaced.
