The Atlantic Schools of Business (ASB) Conference is one of Canada’s longest running academic business conferences which attracts about 100 academics annually from institutions from the East Coast, across Canada and internationally.
ASB encourages submission in a diversity of functional areas related to business administration, including (but not limited to) Finance, Accounting, Business & Organization History, Marketing, Employee Relations, Human Resources and Industrial Relations, Management Education, Entrepreneurship and more. The venue is sympathetic to research from a variety of philosophical traditions, including but not limited to positivist (mainstream), critical, postmodern, poststructural, postcolonial, or feminist. Above all, the ASB conference heartily welcomes scholarly submissions that are in various stages of development, whether in early or later stages of formulation.
The conference typically takes place over three days during the last weekend of September (note that the 2019 conference will take place Friday, September 27 to Sunday, September 29). The Friday afternoon is usually devoted to a lively doctoral consortium with the evening dedicated to a welcome reception at the hosting university. Saturday and Sunday are reserved for scholarly paper presentations, PDWs and symposia. A banquet dinner including an awards reception takes place on the Saturday evening. Individual awards are given for Best Overall Conference Paper, and Best Student Paper. Institutional awards including the Research Excellence Award and a Best Overall Performance Award allocated to deserving universities.
Those who attend ASB for the first time consistently describe it as welcoming, unique, and fun. Please consider submitting your scholarly papers, symposia and professional development workshop proposals to this developmental and friendly venue.
