Join us in one of the world’s liveliest cities! Come present your work at the 2019 meeting of the International Association for Conflict Management (IACM), to be held at Hotel Riu Plaza-The Gresham in Dublin.
IACM was founded to encourage scholars and practitioners to develop and disseminate theory, research, and experience that can help to explain and guide conflict management in interpersonal, organizational, societal, family, and international settings.
Submissions should cover new material, distinct from published works (including those that will appear in print before the conference), and ideally from presentations at other conferences. We encourage submissions that contribute new knowledge and understanding to the areas of negotiation and conflict management. A variety of research methods are welcome. We also encourage innovative interdisciplinary submissions highlighting dialogue between theory and practice. This year, we especially welcome presentations that:
- Describe research with direct implications for conflicts happening in the real world
- Help us to understand what it means to be ethical or unethical in negotiations
- Push the fields of negotiation and/or conflict management forward in the format of a book
If submissions allow, we hope to organize a symposium on each of these topics.
The conference submission system will open on October 21, 2018. The deadline for submissions is February 4, 2019. You will receive an additional email to let you know the system is open. Types of conference submissions (theoretical, empirical, or applied) include the following:
- Full papers (30 pages maximum; qualify for conference paper awards)
- Extended abstracts (1000 words maximum)
- Symposia, debates, roundtables, workshops, novel sessions (10 pages maximum for symposia, 5 pages maximum for all other formats)
Please indicate whether your submission is related to any of the themes listed above (research with implications for real-world conflict, etc.). Conference submissions may be accepted as paper sessions, rapid fire sessions, poster presentations, or paper development sessions.
This conference promises to be fun and memorable! In addition to formal presentations, you will have many opportunities to develop connections, exchange ideas, and see Dublin. For example, you might find yourself exploring the world-renowned Irish Emigration Museum, visiting Trinity College Dublin and the Book of Kells, learning to pour the perfect pint of Guinness, or mingling with friends in an authentic Irish pub. And why not come early or stay late to visit some of the many must-see sights outside of Dublin—places like Newgrange, Connemara, the Cliffs of Moher, and Belfast (once the epicenter of the Troubles).
We hope you can make it!
