Conference languages are English and German. In order to accommodate international participants, continuous sessions in English are guaranteed. However, it is possible to submit contributions in German. German-speaking discussion groups will complete the conference activities.
A pre‐conference Ph.D. workshop will be held on September 27, 2017. The number of workshop participants is limited to 10 Ph.D. candidates.
The executive seminar will address different perspectives on the transformation processes. In more detail, it will be reflecting on the importance of decades defining technological progress (“Digital Transformation”) as well as on the role of regions, cities, and universities in strengthening the environment as nuclei and drivers of transformation (e.g., Berlin as “start‐up capital” or the new Einstein Centre Digital Future (ECDF)). The seminar is organized as a plenary discussion in German.
For the best conference papers, we offer a fast‐track review process and publishing opportunity in the Journal of Competence‐based Strategic Management (JCSM), published by De Gruyter, ranked in VHB‐Jourqual. If you are generally interested in this publication opportunity, please indicate this when submitting the full paper. Depending on the number of adequate paper submissions, we additionally consider editing special issues in other acknowl‐ edged academic journals.
