Join researchers and practitioners from around the world in a city rich with history and culture – Charleston, SC! Come present your work at the 2020 meeting of the International Association for Conflict Management (IACM), to be held at the Mills House (book your room now in advance!) and historic Hibernian Hall in Charleston.
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.
We welcome conference submissions from researchers and practitioners alike. 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, understanding, and practice to negotiation, conflict management, and peacebuilding. We welcome all research methods, disciplines, and professional backgrounds. We particularly welcome submissions that:
The deadline for submissions is February 7, 2020. You will receive an additional email to let you know the system is open. Types of conference submissions (theoretical, empirical, applied, or practice) include the following:
Please indicate whether your submission is related to any of the themes listed above. Conference submissions may be accepted as paper sessions, rapid fire sessions, poster presentations, or paper development sessions.
All submissions will be subject to blind review. Full paper and extended abstract submissions will be double-blind and all other formats single-blind review. Submissions should use Times New Roman 12-point font, double spaced, 1-inch (2.5cm) margins all around, and an 8.5″ x 11″ page setting. References may be single-spaced. Submissions must be in .pdf format.
The conference promises to be a chance to connect and engage with one another and to enjoy the sites, sounds, and tastes of Charleston. Attendees will have the opportunity to visit historical sites such as Fort Sumter and Charleston City Market, enjoy the beach and beautiful sunsets, and savor the many foods Charleston has to offer.
We look forward to joining you in Charleston!
