Critical Management Studies - Professional Development Workshop at UMASS-Boston
Description: As part of the Critical Management Studies Professional Development Workshop programme for 2012 the division is sponsoring a one-day paper development workshop to be held at the University of Massachusetts Boston Campus (Boston Harbour).
Timetable: The workshop will run from 10.30am to 5.30am on Friday August 3 and includes six paper streams with a strict limit of six accepted papers per stream.
Aim: The aim of the workshop, as with previous events (the two day events that CMS has sponsored in Atlanta, Los Angeles and Montreal) is to maximise discussion around, and development of, full length papers in preparation for publication. In order to maximize discussion, authors will not present their own papers, but rather participants will be asked to present and discuss each others' papers. Please note also that this is a powerpoint free event!).
Location: The workshop will be held in the Campus Centre at the UMass Boston whom is sponsoring the event (details on how to travel to the location from AoM hotels/conference centre will be circulated closer to the time).

Deadlines: Abstract should be submitted by May 1 to the stream convenors. Stream convenors will endeavour to return abstract decisions by May 15. Full papers should be submitted to the stream convenors by July 1 for distribution to stream participants.
