Regular Submission

May 31, 2014

Join us in beautiful Orlando, Florida for IBAM 22, where we will gather to discuss, debate, and present our ideas about the future of behavioral and applied management!  As one of America’s most visited cities, Orlando’s famous attractions form the backbone of its tourism industry: Walt Disney World Resort, located in Lake Buena Vista, opened by the Walt Disney Company in 1971; the Universal Orlando Resort, which consists of the two parks of Universal Studios Florida and Islands of Adventure; City Walk; SeaWorld; Gatorland; and Wet ‘n Wild Water Park.

  Stay  at the incredible Sheraton Lake Buena Vista Resort. Located adjacent to the excitement of Downtown Disney® the Walt Disney Good Neighbor® (http://www.sheratonlakebuenavistaresort.com/) offers free scheduled transportation to all nearby Walt Disney World® theme parks and the ability for guests to purchase Disney tickets.  Try out Universal Studios® and Universal’s Islands of Adventure just down the road. Visit Shamu at SeaWorld Orlando, or take a swim with the dolphins at Discovery Cove. However, if you would prefer to just relax, simply enjoy the Florida sun by the pool and hot tub.

Center 1 - Sheraton 

Participate as a presenter, reviewer, session chair, discussant, volunteer, or division chair.  IBAM welcomes management educators, business practitioners, and students to share their ideas, research, and experiences in a friendly and supportive environment.   Session discussions are lively, informative, stimulating, and broad-based.

We will welcome you warmly and value you as an individual and colleague, not a member of a cast of thousands. Executives, managers, professionals, and students are all members and active participants in IBAM’s annual conferences.

Conference Theme: The Pursuit of New Knowledge

Long before google and blog were verbs, when wiki was just Hawaiian for “very fast”, university libraries were the primary repositories of all manner of information.  And while university libraries are still the center of campus (offering subject matter experts, the best coffee, AND  Wifi),  information access has decentralized.  The conference theme for IBAM 22 springs from our organization’s commitment to inquiry and academic rigor in the rapidly expanding knowledge economy.  Albert Einstein reminded the informed of his day, “Information is not knowledge,” and Peter Drucker, ushering in the era of the knowledge worker counseled, “Knowledge has to be improved, challenged, and increased constantly, or it vanishes.” IBAM 22 is a collegial forum for research to be presented, heard, discussed and dissected on its way to becoming published. Educators, students and practitioners are encouraged to submit papers engaging the theme “The Pursuit of New Knowledge” in the field of behavioral and applied management.
