The Strategic Management Strategic Interest Group (SIG) is devoted to promoting state of the art strategic thinking by encouraging dialogue along several interrelated lines of inquiry crucial for increasing scholarly and managerial understanding regarding strategic choice, competitive advantage, adaptation, and long-term performance and survival. The SIG which was launched at the EURAM 2010 conference in Rome close to a hundred submissions including the best conference paper of 2010 and over a hundred submissions were received for the Tallinn conference of 2011. The success of the SIG is premised on our commitment towards bringing together scholars from around the world to engage in the development and exposure of high-quality research ideas with the potential to drive the future direction of scholarly and practitioner strategic thinking.

The striking success and enduring popularity of this particular SIG are premised on our commitment towards bringing together scholars from all around the world to engage in the development and exchange of high-quality research ideas with the potential to fertilize and drive the future directions of scholarly and practitioner strategic thinking alike.

We hereby invite you to submit full paper versions of your work to one of the 6 tracks or one of the associated sub-tracks within the Strategic Management SIG no later than January 15th, 2013, 14:00 Brussels time via www.euram2013.com.

Empirical, conceptual, and practitioner-oriented papers from a plurality of theoretical perspectives, units of analyses, contexts, and research designs are welcome, with particular encouragement for those integrating multiple theoretical lenses and/or methodological approaches. All submitted papers will be reviewed on a double-blind basis by two reviewers. Please adhere to the style guide of the Academy of Management when preparing your manuscripts and indicate on the title page to which sub-track you are submitting. If you have any further questions regarding the SIG or the sub-tracks, feel free to contact Henk Volberda (hvolberda@rsm.nl) or one of the other track chairs.
