2008 TIM Best Dissertation Award: Submission Deadline Jan. 31st

Announced on OCISNET

The Technology and Innovation Management division of the Academy of
Management is pleased to invite submissions for the 2008 TIM Best
Dissertation Award.  We will accept submissions based on doctoral
dissertations completed during calendar years 2006 and 2007.  We take a
broad perspective on technology and innovation including aspects of the
emergence, diffusion, adoption, commercialization, evolution and
consequences of technologies and innovations.

The award process involves two stages.  In the first stage, each applicant
submits a 5-page dissertation abstract.  A committee of experienced
scholars then selects the finalists.  In the second stage, each finalist
is invited to submit a 30-page manuscript based upon their dissertation.
The committee reviews these manuscripts, provides feedback, and selects
the best dissertation.  The winner will be announced at the 2008 Annual
Academy of Management Meetings.  All finalists will be invited to present
their work at a dedicated session during the conference and will receive a
cash award of $250.  Important details on the submission process are
posted at http://www.aomtim.org under the 2008 meeting information, and
the deadline for submission is January 31st 2008.
