Attention Members and Conference Participants:
We regret to announce the cancellation of the AOM Specialized Conference Advancing Management Research in Latin America. We had hoped that we would not have to take this action. However, out of an abundance of caution for our members and due to the current Coronavirus situation, it was no longer advisable or feasible to hold the conference.
For more information on upcoming AOM events please read the AOM president's message. If you have any questions regarding the cancellation of the Specialized Conference in Mexico City, please contact us at email@example.com.
Latin America (LATAM) is a unique and under explored region in terms of research. It is unique since its countries form part of four different regions: North America, Central America, Caribbean and South America; and through its rich history, culture, and various socioeconomic and political conditions, provide a relevant setting for management research and its application.
The purpose of the conference is to: 1) foster the development of research from Latin American scholars and institutions, 2) create opportunities for leading scholars to learn more about how their work relates to relevant issues that are embedded within the Latin America context, and 3) establish connections between management educators and scholars from Latin America with those from other parts of the world. The participation of international scholars and practitioners and the availability of academic activities that will take place in English, Spanish and Portuguese, provide an immersive experience that will foster the development of lasting research networks.
Conference attendees will have the opportunity to meet with colleagues that share interests in learning more about LATAM and have access to sessions and activities that will provide great cultural insights. Attendees will also experience Mexico City, the biggest metropolis in the region and with an exciting cultural, gastronomic and artistic scenery. IPADE Business School, a leading business school in the region, will host the event in a beautiful colonial-style building inserted in the middle of the city.
