The 47th Annual Atlantic Schools of Business Conference is being hosted this year by the F.C. Manning School of Business Administration, Acadia University (Wolfville, NS) from Friday, September 29 to Sunday, October 1, 2017.

The theme for this year’s conference is “Work and Play in the Tidal Zones.” The tidal zone is neither sea nor land but is a space combining characteristics of each. With this theme, we hope to encourage submissions representing interdisciplinary work that combines functional areas of business research; business research with other academic fields; or papers whose subject(s) speak to the spaces between what are normatively considered dichotomous concepts (ex. urban-rural, work-family, etc.).

As in previous years, submissions for proceedings papers and presentations or developmental sessions are welcome in either our themed or our standing areas (tracks).

Additionally, this year the planned symposia/workshops include:

  • Business & Sustainability Symposium
  • Business of Development Workshop
  • Grape and Wine Sector Workshop
  • Tidal Energy Workshop

Submissions will be accepted via email to the appropriate Track or Symposium Chair until: August 21st 2017.

Submissions from Canadian scholars should be emailed to the local track chair while international submissions should go to the international track chair. Please use the email subject heading ASB Submission and refer to the style guide at www.asbconference.ca for submission format.

Please save the date and plan to join us.

Jean Helms Mills and Albert Mills, ASB Co-Presidents
