CONFLICT MANAGEMENT (CM)

Program Chair: Pri Shah, University of Minnesota 
2022 Division Scholarly Program: Call for Submissions

The Conflict Management (CM) Division invites symposium and paper submissions for the 82nd Annual Meeting of the Academy of Management in Seattle, Washington, USA. This year's Annual Meeting will be hybrid to allow attendees to participate both on-site as well as virtually. The On-Site meeting will be held August 5-9 in Seattle. We anticipate 70% of our sessions to be in-person, and 30% of these sessions will be livestreamed to allow for virtual participation. The Virtual Meeting will be held August 4-10 and will have both an asynchronous and synchronous component. We anticipate 30% of our sessions to be virtual. You may send us submissions though the  AOM Submission Center until it closes on Tuesday, 11 January 2022 at 5:00 PM ET (NY Time).

Our Domain: The CM division welcomes submissions on a wide variety of topics including conflict, trust, team interactions, intercultural relations, organizational diversity, negotiations, labor relations, workplace disputes, community conflict, public policy development, and diversity, equity and inclusion. We focus on the nature and management of conflicts and topics related to conflict at the individual, dyadic, group, network, organizational, inter-organizational and societal level, including: power processes, influence, coalitions, coercion, deterrence, and persuasion; bargaining and negotiation, negotiator characteristics and behaviors; collaboration and competition; third party interventions (such as facilitation, arbitration, mediation); distributive and procedural justice and dispute resolution procedures. If this describes your research, we hope to get your paper!

The Conference Theme: This year’s conference theme is  "Creating a Better World Together."  Given the uncertainty resulting from the global pandemic, social unrest, and polarization of viewpoints, the practical implications of our research are even more important now than ever before. We encourage you to make connections to the theme (if possible) when preparing your submission.

Reviewing for CM: Our division is an intimate, warm and inclusive group of people who work in and study the domain of conflict. We are good at developing great ideas! We will need your help as a reviewer to keep this tradition alive—and to help us identify our best submissions. Please sign up to review. Your reviewer assignment will be based on the keywords. We are grateful for your service to the division!

CM Division Awards: The CM Division will award: (a) Best Student Paper, (b) Best Paper: Conflict in Context, (c) Best New Directions Paper, (d) Best Empirical or Theoretical Paper.

We look forward to your contribution to our division! If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact the Program Chair, Pri Shah.
