The Academic Congress Track

The Academic Congress Track is organized in cooperation with the International Association of Cross-Cultural Competence and Management (IACCM) and aims at promoting the latest research, especially as it relates to intercultural management.

The best papers will be published by SIETAR Europa. You can take a look at the Preceedings&Awards from the Dublin 2017 Congress, or browse the publication dedicated to the Congress (.pdf).

In 2019, IACCM will reward the best student paper and the best academic Congress paper with the the chance to compete on being published in The European Journal of Cross-Cultural Competence and Management (EJCCM).

There are two types of submission formats under the Academic Track:

1. Academic Paper Presentations (20-30 min.) where the presenter(s) give their input (15-20 min.) and engage in discussion with the participants. This format permits considerable audience participation, so the presenter(s) should, within the given time, propose and follow an outline to permit a thorough examination of the presented topic. 

Submissions for this format should not be longer than 900 – 1.200 words and should be submitted via our online submission system, using the dedicated template which you can download here.

2. Panel Sessions (90 min.) which serve as discussion forums for issues of contemporary interest to intercultural scholars. Panels are complete sessions organized as a single submission by the panel chair around a common theme. Panels may have a variety of formats. Examples include: roundtables with no formal papers, innovative presentations utilizing visual aids and key notes and discussions with senior scholar(s).

Submissions for this format should not be longer than 900 – 1.200 words and should be submitted via our online submission system , using the dedicated template which you can download here.

If you have any questions regarding the Academic Track, please write to Marie-Therese Claes  (submissions@sietareu.org), Academic Track Chair.
