IACM Call for Papers

I am delighted to post IACM’s call for papers here.  This annual conference from the International Association of Conflict Management is a great opportunity to keep up to date on all sorts of interdisciplinary and empirical work from researchers in economics, psychology, business, and public planning.  I highly recommend the conference–which is much fun–and this year, in Dublin, I’m even helping out with some of the details.  Submissions open next week but the deadline is not until early February so we have some time to think about proposals.  I’ve also copied some details below.  Join me!


32nd Annual Conference of the International Association for Conflict Management

Dublin, Ireland
July 7-10, 2019 

Submission system opens at iafcm.org: October 21, 2018
Submission Deadline: February 4, 2019, 5:00 p.m. US Eastern Standard Time

IACM was founded to encourage scholars and practitioners to develop and disseminate theory, research, and experience that can help to explain and guide conflict management in interpersonal, organizational, societal, family, and international settings.

Submissions should cover new material, distinct from published works (including those that will appear in print before the conference), and ideally from presentations at other conferences. We encourage submissions that contribute new knowledge and understanding to the areas of negotiation and conflict management. A variety of research methods are welcome. We also encourage innovative interdisciplinary submissions highlighting dialogue between theory and practice. This year, we especially welcome presentations that:

  • Describe research with direct implications for conflicts happening in the real world
  • Help us to understand what it means to be ethical or unethical in negotiations
  • Push the fields of negotiation and/or conflict management forward in the format of a book

If submissions allow, we hope to organize a symposium on each of these topics.

The conference submission system will open on October 21, 2018. The deadline for submissions is February 4, 2019. You will receive an additional email to let you know the system is open. Types of conference submissions (theoretical, empirical, or applied) include the following:

  • Full papers (30 pages maximum; qualify for conference paper awards)
  • Extended abstracts (1000 words maximum)
  • Symposia, debates, roundtables, workshops, novel sessions (10 pages maximum for symposia, 5 pages maximum for all other formats)

Please indicate whether your submission is related to any of the themes listed above (research with implications for real-world conflict, etc.). Conference submissions may be accepted as paper sessions, rapid fire sessions, poster presentations, or paper development sessions.
