0x9C8DFC68ED943276F44C4B1BD3BC2A2CLetter from the organizers of the SAP Community Day at EGOS 2018 in Tallinn

 

Dear SAP Friends,

We hope you enjoyed any of the SAP Community Days at EGOS Colloquiums in previous years. We are again planning a full-day pre-conference SAP event for this year’s EGOS Colloquium in Tallinn – and registrations are now open.

We would be happy, if you joined us for this year’s exciting SAP Community Day on Wednesday, July 4th, 2018. In keeping with the overall Community Day topic “Inspiring and Expanding Strategy-as-Practice Research”, this year’s Research Community Platform features two related parts: The morning is dedicated to sparking and developing new ideas based on a keynote speech by Paul Adler and interactive roundtable sessions that allow scholars to pitch their nascent ideas to international experts in the area of SAP research. In the afternoon, we will explore how the SAP Community can be expanded by building on recent achievements such as the SMJ Special Issue on Strategy Process and Practice, providing “behind the scenes” into the review process of recently published SAP-related papers and discussing “the future of SAP research” with renowned panelists. For both parts, we were able to win leading scholars in each of the respective research areas, so make sure not to miss this workshop. Given that many SAP scholars will be spread across different sub-themes for the main conference, this pre-colloquium workshop will allow you to renew and maintain your SAP relationships while discussing issues of concern to the SAP Community.

Applications to participate can be submitted via the EGOS website until April 30, 2018. For more information, including the full Call for Participation, click here: https://goo.gl/cwEnBo.

We look forward to seeing many of you in Tallinn!

Kind regards,
Georg, Matthias, Philip & Tania
