Cornell University Emerging Markets Institute (EMI) and partners - Northeastern University Center for Emerging Markets (CEM), The Simon Fraser University Jack Austin Centre For Asia Pacific Business Studies, and The University of Texas at Dallas Center for Global Business (CGB) - are pleased to announce the fifth annual Global Strategy and Emerging Markets (GSEM) Conference. Previous GSEM conferences have been held in Miami (2016), Boston (2017), Miami (2018) and Dallas (2019). This conference provides a platform to bring together senior and junior scholars, doctoral students, and practitioners in the fields of international business, strategic management, cross-cultural management, technology strategy, and global entrepreneurship with shared interests in global strategy, emerging markets, and emerging market multinationals.
The theme of GSEM 2020 is "Competing in the Digital Word." Digital technologies-including internet of things, 5G, cloud computing, AI, big data, and other new information technologies-are profoundly influencing the global economy by reshaping the rules of competition, generating new business models and enabling innovative ecosystems. Digital technologies are creating new business opportunities for emerging markets to improve their competitiveness and in some instances to leapfrog existing business practices and become world leaders. Examples of possible topics include, but are not limited to:
We welcome you to submit papers (≤ 40 pages all-inclusive with double-spaced text following Academy of Management Journal guidelines) OR proposals (5 single-spaced pages all-inclusive following Strategic Management Society conference guidelines). Please submit your papers to email@example.com. In addition to research presentations, the conference will feature (1) keynote speeches, (2) a "meet with editors" session, (3) a Cornell "research day," (4) a paper development session, and (5) an industry (practitioner/policymaker) panel. Attendants could publish their paper at Cornell's eCommons or EMI report if they so choose.
Official conference hotels: Ithaca Marriott Downtown, Statler Hotel (discount code for this conference to follow and please use it before Apr 15 for hotel reservation). There will be a shuttle service between the hotel and campus.
