What Now? International Business in a Confused World Order
University of Leeds
13th – 15th December 2019

Submissions are Now Closed! Final Decisions Have Been Sent! Final Paper Upload Closed! Poster Upload Information Now Available!

Information on Poster Session uploading and printing are now available. You should upload your poster onto the Conftool System so that it is available digitally to participants. In addition, you can have your poster printed locally (for a fee). All of the information is available on the Poster Guidelines Page.

Registration System Now Open!

The conference registration system is now open. Go to the registration page to get information about the registration options for participants, exhibitors and guests as well as an overview of the pre- and post-conference tours, events and workshops. Remember to first read the “How to Register” document, as we are using a single system for all activities and participants. If you require a visa letter this can be requested via the registration page. You cannot get a visa letter without first registering for the conference (we can supply a separate ‘acceptance’ letter to use for funding purposes and this can be requested via email).

Get your hotel reservations soon, as we expect our reserved spaces to fill up quickly. Leeds in December is very busy and there is a lot of demand for hotel space. You can book your hotel via the “Practical Information” page on this website which has details of hotels with specific deals and blocks of rooms for EIBA 2019 participants.

Preliminary Programme Available!

A very, very preliminary program is available for viewing. While some movement may occur as we resolve some conflicts and papers are withdrawn, this should help you with your travel planning. Also, please note that you should check to see whether you have been assigned to be a session chair. This has been updated as of 11 November.

Call for Papers

The 2019 EIBA conference will be an opportunity to look at broadening the impact and footprint of international business through integration with research in other social sciences, to investigate the lessons to be learned from the current turbulent environment. The fact that the conference will be in the UK just before the country’s technical exit from the EU presents a unique opportunity to hold this discussion in an environment currently living through one version of that turbulence.

Explore Tracks

The conference theme will be operationalized via a collection of tracks that cover traditional topics in international business and a parallel set of specialized tracks that relate to how we can integrate new ideas from the social sciences, policy, and business. 

WARNING OF SPAM EMAIL! We have been made aware that there is a service called ehotelservices.org who may be attempting to get information by posing as the official hotel provider. Please note that Conference Leeds is the official accommodation website for the conference and they would not contact you directly for a booking or ask for private information except through the reservation system on this site.  The only time they would contact you is if you have booked a room and have a query about your booking – in which case they would not ask you for any personal information and would only contact you using the contact details you have given on your booking. Hence, if you are asked for information by any other group, do not respond and inform us on the eiba2019@leeds.ac.uk contact email.
