The focus of this extension is on the future of technology and sustainability in the mobility sector. Driven by shifts in consumer demand, technology forcing by legislative bodies, and broader ecological concerns, traditional modes of transportation (i.e., private automobiles powered by internal combustion engines) are increasingly facing substitution by alternatives such as private automobiles powered by electric motors, car-sharing, ride-sharing, app-based transportation networks, mass transportation, and multi-mode travel. Even mass transportation options such as buses and trains are at risk of substitution, as consumers find that car sharing is a viable alternative.

Research in Strategic Management on Innovation Ecosystems provides a natural lens to understand how public and private entities will respond to incentives to innovate, and who will benefit from disruptions in the sector.

This extension brings together academics conducting Strategy research in the mobility and transportation sectors with practitioners in those sectors Our intent is to promote interactive discussion between industry participants and researchers, with the goal of furthering Strategy research and collaboration with practitioners in the automotive and transportation sectors.

We will also be hosting a poster session highlighting management research in the automotive/transportation/mobility sectors. One-page abstracts of proposed posters should be sent to Submissions will be accepted on a rolling basis until all slots are filled.
