About the Conference
This conference provides a venue for scholarly interactions among academics, researchers, students, and representatives from industry and government. The annual theme is the economic, social, political, cultural and technological environments in which today’s businesses operate. This conference is the 8th in the annual international conference series since 2007.
Annually, our conference is attended by 60 to 120 participants who represent up to 20 universities in up to 12 countries and territories. Our conference has been successful in that more than 50% of participants are repeat participants, i.e., they participated in at least one of our past conferences. Participants’ post-conference feedback in our last three (3) conferences show more than 90% rating our conference as “excellent” or “very good.”
All of the past conferences were organized by the University of Guam-School of Business and Public Administration (Guam, U.S.A.) in partnership with Penn State Altoona-Division of Business and Engineering (U.S.A.) and one or more of the following partners:
Proposals for presentations and panels (comprised of 3 to 5 related presentations) are invited in the following broad subject categories.
The Conference Program will be organized so that sessions flow well and that papers in each session relate to each other. Depending on the numbers of paper presentations, we may also consider holding concurrent sessions. Plan on a 15-20 minute presentation (including questions and answers). Language used in the entire conference will be English. Non-English-speaking presenters may participate as long as they are accompanied by a competent English-translator and limit their presentation within the time allowance. Equipment for PowerPoint presentations will be available. Please save your files in a lower version of PowerPoint (with a .ppt extension) to ensure software compatibility. Please use a flash drive for file storage.
The conference registration fees are USD350 per person, including lunch and morning and afternoon snacks on the two days of the conference and presentation of one paper.
