The world of business is changing rapidly. Digitization and artificial intelligence are transforming the nature of work, enabling new business models, new organizational forms, and new modes of entrepreneurship. The SMS Special Conference in Hangzhou seeks to bring together ambitious and cutting-edge research that explores this "Brave New World." We aim to showcase work that not only sheds new light on these emerging phenomena, but also examines the implications of these trends for existing research and practice. We aspire to foster an engaged and critical dialog, drawing together not only leading scholars from Asia and around the world, but also executives and practitioners who grapple with these phenomena on a daily basis.
We are excited to be holding this Special Conference in the bustling city of Hangzhou, China! Click below to learn more about the city's history and sites.
