Dear EURAM members and friends,

Join us in Lisbon 26-28th of June 2019 for the EURAM conference!

With our theme Exploring the Future of Management: Facts, Fashion and Fado, we invite you to participate in the debate about how to explore the future of management. Management is about doing things through people. Who are these new people? The behaviour of organisations vis-à-vis society is increasingly scrutinised and its impact cannot be ignored. Strategy, behavioural sciences, business and society, networks, services and global value chains, entrepreneurship and innovation… these and many other topics can and will be discussed during EURAM 2019.

We hope that EURAM 2019 at ISCTE-IUL in Lisbon will be a forum where new propositions and answers will be debated, where new theories will be exposed to address the many problems that challenge organisations and their management. Scholars, practitioners, and doctoral students and the whole community are welcome to a rich week with keynotes and roundtables, workshops, symposia, parallel sessions and so much more that Lisbon has to offer.

The more detailed programme will be posted on our website in due time.

The link to the IT platform for submissions is

I. Explore our SIGs and tracks (for more detail click on the SIG title)

For newcomers to our community: Our 14 SIGs are the building blocks of EURAM. SIG Chairs and Officers nurture communities of scholars who are engaged in specific research areas. There are three types of Tracks. General Tracks are the overarching tracks of the SIGs. Standing tracks are ongoing conversations that you can join, and which will continue within a SIG for a number of years. Finally, every year there are Tracks that are selected in a competitive submission and review process (they may become standing tracks in the future if they prove to be of continued interest). Each SIG General Track invites contributions from all areas related to the SIG specific research area but which are not explicitly covered by other tracks within the SIG.

III. Authors’ Guidelines

As an author, it is crucial to follow the guidelines and formatting instructions to prepare and submit your paper in order to have it published in proceedings.

Each paper will be screened to ensure compliance to EURAM’s guidelines. Papers which do not match the EURAM requirements will be desk-rejected and authors will not have the opportunity to submit an updated version.

Please read the instructions carefully prior to submitting:

  1. Each paper can only be submitted to ONE track.
  2. Submitted papers must NOT have been previously published and if under review, must NOT appear in print before the EURAM 2019 Conference.
  3. To facilitate the blind review process, remove ALL authors identifying information, including acknowledgements from the text, and document/file properties. (Any submissions with author information will be automatically DELETED; author information and acknowledgements are to be included in a SEPARATE document).
  4. The abstract should not exceed 400 words and should be included both in the PDF and the submission form.
  5. Include 3 keywords in the submission form. A maximum of 6 keywords is allowed.
  6. The entire paper (title page, abstract, main text, figures, tables, references, etc.) must be in ONE anonymised document created in PDF format.
  7. The maximum length of the paper is 40 pages (including ALL tables, appendices and references). The minimum length of the paper is 10 pages. The paper format should follow the European Management Review Style Guide.
  8. Use Times New Roman 12-pitch font, double spaced, and 1-inch (2.5 cm) margin all around.
  9. Number all the pages of the paper.
  10. No changes in the paper title, abstract, authorship, track and actual paper can occur AFTER the submission deadline.
  11. Check that the PDF File of your paper prints correctly and ensure that the file is virus-free. Submissions will be done on-line on the EURAM 2019 submission system
  12. Only submissions in English shall be accepted for review.

  14. If you submit a paper, you agree to review at least two papers for EURAM 2019 in the track you have submitted your paper to.



Each individual is limited to one personal appearance on the programme as a presenting author. This policy precludes acceptance of papers for more than one presentation. In other words, an author can submit and present only one paper. However, a presenter can always be a non-presenting co-author on additional papers.


For more information, we invite you to visit the conference website: Should you have any hesitation on which track to select for your paper, you may wish to contact a track chair by email to find the best fit for your submission.

For general questions, you may contact us.

Welcome to the luminous city of Lisbon! A city that you will leave with saudade.


Best wishes,

On behalf of the Conference Programme Committee (CPC) and the Local Organising Committee (LOC)
