2022 Call for PDWs

2022 Call for PDW Submissions 

The Operations and Supply Chain Management (OSCM) Division invites you to submit creative and innovative proposals for Professional Development Workshops (PDWs) for the 2022 Academy of Management Annual Meeting. Both PDW and Scholarly sessions may take place any day during the Annual Meeting, Friday, 5 August – Tuesday, 9 August.

The OSCM Division encourages PDWs that build knowledge and share expertise oriented towards emerging research themes and methods as well as management practice in the OSCM area. PDW sessions are also intended for professional development of the participants, so sessions around research and teaching development are called for. PDWs can take different formats, such as workshops, tutorials, debates, roundtable discussions, panel discussions, facility tours, etc.

We highly encourage PDW proposals that link to other divisions/interest groups with joint sponsorship as well as ones that reflect the conference theme – ‘Creating a Better World Together’. Acceptance will be based on (a) relevance to the interests of the Division’s membership, (b) creativity and innovation, and (c) plan for creating an inclusive, interactive, and developmental session. (Note: Traditional presentations of research papers should be submitted to the Scholarly Program portion of the Annual Meeting).

Proposals must be submitted online via the AOM submission center https://submit.aom.org/. Please submit all proposals along with any joint-division “sponsorship” suggestions using this website. We certainly welcome proposals that are of interest to members of other divisions (e.g., OMT, SIM, ONE, STR, TIM).

Deadline for Submissions is Tuesday, 11 January 2022 at 5:00 pm ET (NY Time). Early submissions are highly encouraged. Please note that all PDW participants must commit to participation in advance.

If you have any questions or suggestions or would like feedback on your ideas for a PDW event, please do not hesitate to contact Veronica Villena, Arizona State University: vhvillena@asu.edu.
