The conference is jointly organized by the Faculty of International Relations of the University of Economics in Prague and the Faculty of Commerce of the University of Economics in Bratislava. It relates to fourteen successful years of the video-conference Czech Republic and Slovakia in International Business and is to be perceived as its successor. The main focus of the conference has been extended on the whole region of Central and Eastern Europe, since this region plays increasingly important role within the economic development of the whole European continent.

Given the economic crisis aftermath and political and economic turbulences in the Central and Eastern Europe, the main objectives of the conference are to identify and analyze the ways and strategies whereby globally operating businesses can maintain and foster their competitiveness in regard to their foreign competitors.

Four sessions will be organized within the conference: International Marketing, International Trade, International Finance and International Business and Management.

Topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Changes in international marketing, management and business strategies
  • International finance
  • Global trade
  • International Markets
  • Corporate Social Responsibility in international business
  • Sustainable economic development from global perspective

Abstracts in English are to be submitted electronically via the webpage of the conference by December 1, 2014 and their extent is limited to 250 words. Full papers in English (after the approval of submitted abstract) are to be submitted following the conference template by January 31, 2015 at the latest. The length of each paper must not exceed either 10 pages in case of one or two authors, or 15 pages in case of more than two authors (including figures and references). Each paper has to involve a chapter constituting an original empirical or analytical development that contributes to the current theoretical state of the art. Indeed, case studies are acceptable as well.

Conference fee of EUR 150 will be paid during the submission process of full papers.

The review process of each paper is double-blind, based on two reviews.

Conference proceeding will be sent for evaluation to Thomson Reuters (CPCI database) and Scopus.

Best papers will be considered for publication in Central European Business Review, an international peer-reviewed journal focused on strategic business issues with a Central European perspective.
