2020 AOM OSCM Synchronous Sessions

2020 Virtual AOM OSCM Division Annual Meeting


Greetings OSCM community!


If you have not done so already, now is a great time to start preparing for what is shaping up to be an exciting 2020 Virtual AOM Annual Meeting. While we will not be able to interact with friends and colleagues in-person this year, the virtual format of this year’s conference offers several benefits including:

  • Vastly more convenient to attend via the one-stop virtual event platform Pathable
  • Access to 200+ synchronous (live) sessions and hundreds of additional asynchronous sessions across the Academy’s numerous divisions
  • Fewer scheduling conflicts. All synchronous sessions will be recorded for later viewing
  • Authors can post supplemental information (papers, slides, recordings, etc.) for review and comment by attendees
  • An extended collaboration and viewing period. Questions, answers, and comments can be added through August 31st. Supplemental session information is available through October 31st
  • The ability to participate in the Virtual Career Fair
  • The opportunity to meet one-on-one with publishers and other vendors at the Virtual Exhibit Hall


This year, the OSCM Division received 169 paper submissions, 3 symposia submissions, and 6 PDW submissions (including the Joint Doctoral Student & Junior Faculty Consortium). Thanks to the service of 218 members who signed up as reviewers, our review process resulted in the acceptance of 75 papers, 6 PDWs, and 3 co-sponsored symposia. These accepted contributions were offered placement in either the synchronous or asynchronous portion of the virtual program.


The table at the end of this page highlights the synchronous portion of the OSCM program which includes:

  • The Joint Doctoral Student & Junior Faculty Consortium,
  • 3 PDWs,
  • 3 Best Paper sessions, and
  • 2 Journal Award presentation meetings.


An effort was made to schedule these live sessions at times that were most convenient for the authors/presenters based on the time zones where they are located. If a session of interest is scheduled at a time that is inconvenient given your time zone, please remember that all sessions are recorded for later viewing.


In addition to synchronous sessions, conference registrants will have access to an extensive asynchronous program. Authors of papers accepted for the OSCM program, and not included in the sessions listed in the table on the following page, have the opportunity to post papers, slides, and video recordings to the AOM virtual conference platform. For the OSCM Division alone, this includes the potential for up to 63 additional papers. Conference participants will be able to view the shared materials, follow conversations, and engage in meaningful online dialogue.


The complete AOM virtual program should be available online in mid-July. Beyond what was mentioned above, the program will include:

  • 200+ live sessions
  • 1,400+ mock live and pre-recorded sessions
  • Supplemental materials available for sessions, including presentation slides, videos, and other informational documents
  • Discussion feeds and additional interactive engagement opportunities for all sessions
