Call for 2008 TIM Division Best Dissertation Award Submissions
The 2008 TIM Division Best Dissertation Awards Abstract Submission Deadline: January 31, 2008
Committee co-chairs Victor Seidel and David Hsu announce the 2008 dissertation awards competition.
The Technology and Innovation Management Division is pleased to invite submissions for the 2008 TIM Best Dissertation Award. We will accept submissions based on doctoral dissertations completed during calendar years 2006 and 2007. We take a broad perspective on technology and innovation including aspects of the emergence, diffusion, adoption, commercialization, evolution and consequences of technologies and innovations.
The award process involves two stages. In the first stage, each applicant submits a 5-page dissertation abstract. A committee of experienced scholars then selects the finalists. In the second stage, each finalist is invited to submit a 30-page manuscript based upon their dissertation. The committee reviews these manuscripts, provides feedback, and selects the best dissertation. The winner will be announced at the 2008 Annual Academy of Management Meetings in Anaheim, and all finalists will be invited to present their work at a dedicated session during the conference and will receive a cash award of $250. Details on the submission process are posted at http://www.aomtim.org under the 2008 meeting information, and the deadline is January 31st 2008.
