Lahore University of Management Sciences (LUMS), with its partners, invites submissions to the 11th Asian Management Research and Case Conference 2024 (AMRC).
The rapid advancement of digital technologies has ushered in a new era of profound transformation, changing every aspect of our lives, including communication, work, information consumption, engagement with businesses and governments, and personal and professional interaction. Globally, the adoption of transformative technologies has accelerated. This has led to the redefinition of traditional business landscapes and societal structures. We continue to move towards an increasingly interconnected and technology-driven future. However, all of this has not occurred without its challenges. Issues such as data privacy and security, ethical use of AI and automation, the digital divide and access disparities, and the potential impact of technology on the changing nature of work in terms of job displacement and inequality are important considerations. The challenges facing us are manifold, heterogeneous, and complex. In order to explore this debate further and add to the research on this topic, this year’s conference theme is “The Digital Age: Transformation and its Societal Impacts”.
This conference provides a unique platform for researchers, academics, and industry practitioners to explore the multifaceted impact of the digital age on various dimensions of management within the context of Asian societies. We invite contributions that shed light on the challenges, opportunities, and societal implications arising from this digital transformation. Submissions are welcomed from diverse disciplines, fostering an interdisciplinary dialogue that examines the profound influence of digitalization on society at large.
Submissions may include: Research Papers and Teaching Cases.
All submissions will be reviewed based on originality, rigour, and relevance to the conference theme. All accepted manuscripts will be presented at the conference.
