Philosophy of Management 2014 is the ninth in a series of conferences open to all.  It will be of special interest to philosophers, management researchers and teachers, consultants and practicing managers. This will be the first conference held in the US and we will follow a very successful and established model used at earlier conferences at St Anne's College, Oxford.   We are designing an event to offer opportunities for unhurried presentation of papers and discussion, high-quality supportive interaction and feedback, ample opportunity for networking and a gathering in which all participants can pursue informal, rich conversations and the continuing exploration of shared concerns.  Participants will be limited to 75 plus plenary speakers.
 
The overall theme of the conference is to explore the connections among philosophy and  management with special attention paid to business ethics and economics, since these two disciplines often form the underpinning for management.
 
Contributions are invited to any of the Conference tracks – or on any aspect of philosophy of management and from within any cultural or philosophical tradition. We will especially welcome papers, panels and workshops on the relationship between philosophy and management practice. Conference Tracks are:
 
1.    Philosophy of Management, Ethics and Economics
2.    Management Theory and Philosophy
3.    Philosophical Issues in Sustainability
4.    Philosophy and the Practice of Management
5.    Teaching Philosophical Concepts in the Business Disciplines
6.    Philosophical Issues in Leadership
7.    Philosophy of Managing Information
8.    Divers
 
Abstracts only are due on January 13, 2014.  Contributors will be notified of acceptance a  month later, and full papers are due on May 5.  Papers will be blind-reviewed, appear on the Conference Papers website and revised versions will be considered for publication in a forthcoming issue of Philosophy of Management.

Abstracts and correspondence should be emailed to POMConf2014@darden.virginia.edu
