Dear OSCM Division Members,
We would like to invite you to submit your abstracts to the International Symposium on Cross-Sector Social Interactions 2020 (CSSI 2020 Conference) taking place at the University of Limerick in Ireland on June 24-27, 2020.
The conference is a forum for academics, practitioners, and policy makers to share best practices and discuss future issues in the design and implementation of partnerships or other initiatives in which actors from the public, business, and/or civil society sectors interact to address complex societal challenges.
Please find the conference Call for Papers at https://www.cssi2020.com/, and the call for the conference special issue to be published in the Journal of Business Ethics at https://www.cssi2020.com/special-issue. The special issue theme is "Putting Partnerships in their Place: Moral and Material Processes of Place-based Respect, Repair, and Renewal" and it will be guest edited by Annmarie Ryan, Oana Branzei, Susi Geiger, and Helen Haugh.
If you do research on cross-sector partnerships or interactions in the context of supply chains or other organizational networks, please consider submitting your extended abstract to the special session/track "Partnerships & Organizational Networks" co-chaired by myself, Laura Albareda (LUT Univ.), and Lea Stadtler (Grenoble Ecole de Management). More information about all the special sessions/tracks is available at the conference website (https://www.cssi2020.com/programme).
The submission system is now open, and the conference organizers run a central submission process where authors submit to either the 1) open conference "track" or 2) one of the ten special tracks (e.g. our "Partnerships & Organizational Networks" track). The deadline for extended abstracts (max 750 words plus references) is November 30, and optional full papers are due on May 22. Papers submitted to any track can be nominated for the Routledge Best Paper in Social Partnership Award as well as submitted to the conference special issue.
Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions regarding the conference or our track.
