Academy of International Business (AIB) - Australia and New Zealand Chapter Annual Symposium

This annual event has, over the last few years, manifested itself as a valuable opportunity to obtain collegial feedback on ongoing research. It provides a forum to develop future journal articles and research book publications, as well as to network with other researchers working in the area of International Business. Early-mid career academics and PhD students are particularly welcome.

  • AIB - ANZ ChapterDates: 11-12 November, 2016

  • Host: Management Discipline Group, UTS Business School, University of Technology Sydney

  • Venue: Dr. Chau Chak Wing Building (UTS Business School, Building 8, 14 Ultimo Road, Haymarket, Sydney)


The AIB-ANZ Chapter meeting is an annual event held in collaboration with the Australia and New Zealand International Business Academy (ANZIBA). 

Scheduled at the transition period between teaching and the summer 'paper writing' season, the AIB-ANZ chapter meeting allows  the region’s IB researchers to come together as a community and network, be reinvigorated, and re-focus our research efforts prior to a summer of research productivity.

The meeting includes

  • a research symposium on 11 November, where authors are able to present and receive feedback on their early-stage research ideas from peers, prior to working up papers for submission to journals or conferences. To benefit from this opportunity, a one-page abstract (up to 750 words) is all that is required for submission.
  • a half-day paper development workshop (PDW), which will take place on 12 November. Facilitated by distinguished IB academics, this workshop will help you to refine and develop your paper in preparation for submission to a high-quality journal. PDW participation requires the submission of a full paper draft.
