About the Event

International Conference on Management in Emerging Markets

Background

In the last decade, we have witnessed the contribution of emerging countries such as Brazil, China, India and South Africa to the global economy, signaling the narrowing of the gap of income and wealth between emerging and developed countries. Their contribution can also be shown by the fact that about half of the G-20 members come from emerging countries. In addition, the relatively high population growth and the fast growth of the middle-class group in emerging countries have attracted significant capital inflow to these countries. Considering the evidence, it is reasonable to think of emerging countries as highly attractive, becoming potential markets for investors to start and establish their business. In line with the above, the School of Business and Management at Institut Teknologi Bandung (SBM ITB) organized the 1st International Conference on Management in Emerging Markets (ICMEM) in 2016.

Theme: ICMEM 2020

“Sustainable Development: Orchestrating Business to Respond to Society’s Latest Challenges”

Emerging markets are not only rife with opportunities for growth (as have been addressed in past conferences) but also with unjust exploitations and consequences in exchange for such growth – past and present. The latest challenges in emerging markets such as issues related to the well-being of people at many levels and environmental protection are largely results of the capitalistic chain of the globalizing world. Because of this, the issue of sustainable development becomes especially crucial to the emerging markets. Keeping up with the necessity to address sustainability in various aspects, within which business activities are embedded, the 5th International Conference on Management in Emerging Markets (ICMEM) 2020 addresses the notion of sustainable development, especially the ways in which business can respond to the society’s latest challenges.

 

ICMEM 2020 is calling for both Research papers and Case papers (see description below) across various business and management disciplines (e.g. human resources, operations, finance, marketing, entrepreneurship, leadership, organizational behavior, organization theory, knowledge management, accounting, business ethics, decision making, business strategy, consumer behaviors, business information system, technology management) and other related disciplines (e.g. economics, psychology, sociology, anthropology, communication, public relations, international relations, engineering). Our theme (“Sustainable Development”) is applicable in all mentioned disciplines. Scholars, students, practitioners, and the general public are invited to submit their work. Multidisciplinary papers are welcome and encouraged.

All submitted papers are in the form of extended abstracts (maximum 5 pages of 3000-5000 words, inclusive).

Types of Papers

  1. Research Papers (maximum 5 pages)

    Highlighting research findings, methods, and/or theoretical advancement, targeted at (A) scholars’ research, (B) undergraduate research, and (C) graduate research. The categories do not reflect entirely the quality of submissions. Research papers may involve any relevant methodological approaches (i.e. quantitative, qualitative, mixed). All accepted research papers will be presented in a PARALLEL (virtual) presentation format.

    1. Scholars' Research

      This category is for non-student submissions or submissions coming from scholars (either early career or more established scholars). Scholars are generally defined here as those whose profession is to produce scholarship or scholarly (i.e. scientific) work, typically holding a master’s degree or a doctoral degree at the time of submission. While co-authors may include students or any other relevant parties, the first author must be considered a scholar (non-student).

    2. Undergraduate Research

      This category is for submissions coming from research based on undergraduate thesis. While co-authors may include scholars or any other relevant parties, the first author must be considered an undergraduate student (not yet graduating at the time of submission).

    3. Graduate Research (in collaboration with the International Graduate Colloquium)

      This category is for submissions coming from research based on either graduate (or postgraduate) thesis or graduate (or postgraduate) research project. While co-authors may include scholars or any other relevant parties, the first author must be considered a graduate – master’s or doctoral – student (not yet graduating at the time of submission). To submit to this category, students will register and submit via the IGC system.

      Notes: 1) Submissions to this sub-category (“Graduate Research”) may opt to submit an Extended Abstract (using the ICMEM’s template) or a Full Paper (using the IGC template). An accepted extended abstract will be featured in the conference proceedings while a full paper will be automatically considered for review and publication in a partnering journal (authors will be asked to indicate the targeted journal). 2) Practically oriented research papers designed for the purpose of problem solving (e.g. papers from an MBA thesis) must be submitted as Case Papers – see below; 3) An extended abstract is submitted via ICMEM while a full paper is submitted via IGC.
  2. Case Papers (maximum 5 pages)

    Highlighting existing or proposed practices related to (A) business, organization, or industry (B) teaching and learning, and/or (C) community development. Case papers may (or may not) be based on a research project. All accepted case papers will be presented in a POSTER (virtual) presentation format and published in the conference proceedings.

Authors should use the correct format before submission (for either extended abstract or full paper). For extended abstract submissions, see point 2 above. Those whose full paper is accepted (via IGC) by the conference will be automatically considered for review and publication by a journal that partners with IGC 2020 (each journal will have its own quality and administrative requirements for authors' consideration). Please consult your academic program for the requirement. During the submission process, they will be asked to indicate the journal to which their work wishes to be submitted.

Bandung

Bandung is the capital of West Java in Indonesia. Bandung is 180 kilometers southeast from Jakarta. Although it has a population of over two million the pace of city life is slower than Jakarta's. Today Bandung has a population of 2 million people, Bandung area an estimated 4 million. Bandung is situated on a plateau 768 meters above sea level with a cool climate throughout the year. Bandung is the most European city of Java. The raining season starts in Bandung a little bit earlier, then the rest of Indonesia. Normally the raining season in Indonesia is from October till May, the peak of the raining season is in January. The dry season is from June until August, temperature is then 25-30 degrees Celsius during the day. In the morning, the sun is almost shining every day, but in the afternoon many times it gets cloudy, for sunbathing we have to wake up early from 6.30 the sun is already there. In the evening when the sun is down the temperature has drops. The average temperature in Bandung is 22 degrees Celsius; the weather is pleasant all year round.

There are short drives up to the mountain resorts of Lembang and the Bosscha Observatory, and higher to the volcanic crater of Tangkuban Perahu, the only crater in Java accessible all the way by car as far as its rim. It is an awe-inspiring sight of emanating sulfur fumes. Descent into all the volcano's 12 craters is only possible with the aid of an experienced guide, because of the presence of suffocating gases at certain spots. Just a 15 minutes drive from Tangkuban Perahu is a hot springs resort. Here we can swim in warm mineral water pools, good for healing skin problems. The resort provides visitors with a bar, restaurants, tennis courts and cottage style hotels overlooking a beautiful mountain-scope.

In Bandung, try to see the "Wayang Golek" wooden puppet show and hear the "Angklung" bamboo orchestra, as well as the classical Sundanese gamelan and dances. Several institutes of higher education are located here, including the country's prestigious Bandung Institute of Technology.
