Where you may find yourself "Dancing in the Streets!" Can you hear the voices? Michael Jackson, Diana Ross & The Supremes, Smokey Robinson, Stevie Wonder, The Temptations, Martha Reeves and the Vandellas plus many other great talents created the unique Motown sound in Detroit. That music defined a demographic but brought us all to the dance floor.
AOM has grown too big for great cities like Detroit! – Don't miss your chance to experience history while you present your work and make new connections.
2022 is our time to Press on and Move Forward – what better place than MOTOWN and MOTOR CITY?

In addition to the traditional academic disciplinary tracks, again this year, we are hosting a track for professionals in Business Practice the Business Practice track for practicing professionals. This track specifically invites practicing business professionals to engage in advancing thought leadership through their submission of short reflective and insightful essays (~5 pages) that address the conference theme, from their practice perspective. These short essays could then turn into white papers, blog posts, LinkedIn articles, keynote speeches, podcast content, or practice-based scholarly publications. Practicing professionals in this track benefit from the dialog and feedback from reviewers and conference attendees, and the partnering opportunities to collaborate with academic scholars on future research or scholarly practice publications.
We welcome collaborative paper sessions, professional development workshops, symposiums, and other sessions related to the theme. Submit your research papers, symposia proposals, professional development workshop proposals, short papers, and other creative works. Acceptance decisions will be made by early August 2022.
