IACMR 2008 Conference Caucuses: Call for Proposals (Session 20K)
Haiyang Li, Rice University

Garden Hotel, June 22, 13:30-17:30

As we did in the last conference 2006, IACMR continues to have caucus sessions in the 2008 conference in Guangzhou. Caucuses are roundtable discussions which are designed to provide a convenient, informal way for IACMR members who share a topical interest or a professional concern to find one another and to develop a sense of community. For example, if you are working on issues such as entrepreneurship and new technology ventures in China, you want to know who else (e.g., either from mainland China, Hong Kong, U.S., or other countries/regions) are interested in this topic. You would like to have a conversation with them and to know: a) who is doing what, b) what are the commonly interested issues, c) whether there are any potential opportunities for collaborations, etc. Caucuses can help you explore new ideas as well as expand your academic network in an informal, relaxed environment.

Proposal Submission Guideline

Caucus sessions will be scheduled on June 22, 2008 (the last day of the conference). If you are interested in organizing a caucus for the IACMR 2008 conference, please send a proposal to Haiyang Li, Rice University by email (haiyang@rice.edu) or fax (1-713-348-6331).
