Our conference theme, What Matters Most, invites you to reflect upon what is most important, relevant, and significant in your field, in your work as an academic, in organizations, and beyond. We encourage papers and symposia that consider, for example:
· What are the key findings, key theories, key challenges…. in your field? In organizations?
· What matters most? To whom? In what context?
· How do we determine what matters most? To whom?
· How do we measure what matters most? Can we?
· What are the core issues, concerns, and priorities in your discipline?
· What are “the fundamentals” in your discipline?
· How can we make a difference?
· If we were teaching what mattered most, what would it be?
· What should matter most to us as management educators?
· Can business schools help students achieve what matters most?
· What are the core predictors of an effective marketing strategy?
· What are the most critical issues involved in introducing information technology?
· What has the most significant impact on organizational outcomes and success?
· What strongly predicts employee effectiveness?
· What are employees’ priorities in relation to work, family, or their intersection?
· What matters most in leading employees?
· Where should we direct our future research efforts?

We are inviting you to join us in Montréal to dialogue, debate, and ponder what matters most with your colleagues in a stimulating and congenial setting. Montréal’s cosmopolitan flair and “joie de vivre” provides a fantastic backdrop for not only sharing
perspectives and research, but also renewing relationships and connections within and across disciplines.
Paper Submission
· Original papers, written in English or French, should be submitted electronically to the appropriate ASAC division in
Microsoft Word. All contributions will be peer reviewed, and selected papers will be included in the Proceedings.
· Papers must conform to the ASAC Typing Style Guide and must not exceed fifteen (15) single-spaced pages (use Times
New Roman 11), including all author information, the title of the paper, maximum 50-word abstract, all footnotes and
endnotes, all tables, figures, and appendices but excluding references. On a separate page, indicate the authors’ names,
addresses, telephone numbers, fax numbers, and e-mail addresses and to whom all communications should be directed
[Students should also indicate their status and the school in which they are enrolled.]
· All contributions must be submitted via the conference webpage no later than February 1st,
2011. Late contributions or contributions made directly to divisional executive members will not be accepted.
· By submitting a paper, authors are committing to the following ASAC conference policies:
o The submitted paper – in whole or in part - has not been published or presented elsewhere or be under consideration
for presentation at another conference.
o Once the paper has been submitted, no changes to authorship are permitted.
o Authors may submit papers in two ways: (a) for consideration for presentation and for inclusion in the conference
proceedings (default submission); and (b) for presentation only with a request that the paper not be included in the
proceedings. The latter must be noted with the submission. To be considered for a Best Paper award, papers must be
submitted for presentation and inclusion in the proceedings. To be considered for a Best Student Paper award, papers
must be authored solely by students. Authors may not withdraw their papers from inclusion in the conference
proceedings after May 1st.
o At least one author will register for the conference by May 1st. In the absence of this registration, the paper will be
removed from the divisional program, the proceedings (if applicable), and consideration for any divisional awards.
o At least one author of a submitted paper will present their paper, should it be accepted. “Substitute” presenters who are
not co-authors of the originally submitted papers are not permitted.
o Authors may not submit the same paper or substantially the same paper to more than one division.
o Individuals may be associated with a maximum of three submissions (whether they are case studies, papers, or
symposium proposals). This rule is intended to: (a) reduce the frequencies of scheduling conflicts in the program; and
(b) encourage participation from a broader cross section of the membership.
Symposia and Workshops
Members interested in organizing a symposium or workshop should prepare a detailed description of its overall purpose and the
specific role of each participant and submit it via the conference webpage no later than February 1st, 2011.
The same quality requirements and blind review procedures apply as for paper submissions. Symposium proposals can be jointly
submitted to up to three divisions. However, the names of the divisions must be noted in the symposium proposal. This permits the
divisional officers to co-ordinate their program development efforts if, indeed, a symposium proposal is accepted.
