The Asia Academy of Management (AAOM) invites papers for its 13th biennial conference on the theme of “Asian Management in the post-pandemic era: Challenges and opportunities” and organization studies with Asia relevance.

In the past few years, the world has witnessed unprecedented set of events and critical trends that have profound influences on the history of mankind. The outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic has fundamentally transformed the way we live, work and interact with our communities. The advent of generative AI is poised to revolutionize business functions and workplace. The process of deglobalization including the changing nature of relationship between China and the Western countries, especially for the Sino-US relationship has altered the cross-border interactions. Undoubtedly, these trends have been generating uncertainty and unpredictability, among other challenges for almost all kind of organizations. We are particularly interested to see how scholars in various disciplines are studying classic and emerging issues facing today’s organizations. More importantly, we welcome research that have insights for responses to these challenges in various academic areas of management research, including, but not limited to entrepreneurship, international business, human resource management, organizational behavior, leadership, and strategic management. Management research with Asia relevance is particularly welcome. Conceptual, theory‐ building, or empirical papers from the above areas are all suitable for the conference.

The conference program will consist of keynote speeches, academic panels, competitive paper sessions, and interactive poster sessions. All panel and paper submissions will be competitively reviewed. We will also offer Professional Development Workshops (PDWs), consisting of (1) PhD consortium and (2) research methods workshops.
