The Management Theory General Track invites contributions to the fields of management and organisation theory. Open to all paradigms, we welcome papers that address the general significance of theory in our fields or reappraise classical key concepts and their adequacy to the post-millennium context. Submission may be fascinated with smallest details or grandest narratives of management and organisation theory. We are also keen to hear from examples of theory in action as well as exemplars of theories that resist application. Yet another set of contributions might explore futures of management and organization theory. Management Theory General Track is your track if you wish to meet and discuss with a theory-oriented, field experienced, and paradigmatically diverse group of researchers in management and organization.

Selected papers will be invited for submission to partnering journals. Confirmed partnerships include, but are not limited to the following options:
- Selected future-oriented management-theory papers will be invited for submission to a special issue of Futures [SSCI 1.918, Scopus, FNEGE**, ABS**] on the Futures of Management Theory.
- Internationally oriented theory papers might be particularly suitable for submission to the European Journal of International Management [SSCI .575, Scopus, CNRS*, ABS*, VHB***].
- Other management theory-focused papers will be considered for inclusion in a dedicated special section of the Scandinavian Journal of Management [SSCI 2.054, Scopus, ABS**, CNRS**, FNEGE**, VHB***].
Presentation at the conference track will not guarantee acceptance of a manuscript for publication in the partner journals. Also, attending the track is by no means a precondition for acceptance of a manuscripts for the special issue or section.
The EURAM online submission systems will open on December 1, 2017. Upon submission, please send a submission notification to email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org. In this context, you might also express interest in one of the above publication opportunities.
