Overview: We meet early online on Friday 27 November (approx. 8am AEST, which is UTC +10 hours) for the Research Symposium. This is a full day of insights from keynote speakers, interactive panel sessions and research paper presentations, with plenty of opportunity for interaction. Planned highlights include:

  • A Keynote address by Professor Becky Reuber and Professor Sjoerd Beugelsdijk
  • ‘Meet the Editors’ roundtable discussion, with Profs Fang Lee Cooke (IJHRM & IBR), Vikas Kumar (JIM), Peter Liesch (JIBS), John Mezias & William Newburry (AIB Insights), Rudolf Sinkovics (cpoib & JWB)
  • Research paper presentations
  • A panel of Early Career Researchers sharing insights and tips about career choices & strategies for success
  • A panel exploring International Business within Oceania and linkages to other regions
  • The Annual General Meeting, including introduction of the incoming Board for 2021-2023

The Paper Development Workshop will be held asynchronously: mentors and authors will be matched as in previous years, but will then set up a time convenient to themselves to meet either online or face to face (e.g. if co-located). We envisage two mentors and two papers in each group, providing the opportunity for focussed feedback to help hone your papers for journal submission. Those who receive a R&R for the AIB Insights Special Issue on “Engaging with Oceania” ( will also be invited to participate in this Paper Development Workshop.
