Dear Public & Non-Profit Division,
ComplianceNet 2023 will be hosted by American University's Washington College of Law in Washington, DC on June 21-23, 2023. It will have an anti-corruption theme, though papers on all topics related to compliance will be welcome. We are currently accepting panel or paper submissions, with an extended deadline of Friday, March 31, 2023.
We welcome your submissions. You can either individual papers or complete panel proposals. For individual papers, you will be asked to submit the paper title and abstract (up to about 200 words). For panels (3 papers minimum with a maximum of 5 per panel), you will be asked to submit an integrative statement explaining the panel (approximately 200 words), the titles of each paper and their authors, and an abstract for each paper (approximately 200 words).
ComplianceNet seeks to bring together scholars from a range of different disciplines to study the interaction between rules (broadly defined) and individual, group, or organizational behavior. The first five meetings have been highly successful, bringing together academics from business, criminology, economics, law, political science, psychology and sociology, among other fields. See the ComplianceNet website at www.compliancenet.org for more details about the organization's structure and goals.
The conference fee is set at $200. This is to pay for food and drinks (light breakfast snacks, tea and coffee, lunch, and two receptions with snacks) and other conference-related expenses during the conference. The conference organizers will not provide or organize housing and accommodation, but we will provide some general information by email to registered participants.
A program committee will review abstracts and select papers and panels that specifically discuss theoretical and/or empirical aspects about compliance, as defined as the interaction between rules (broadly defined) and individual, group, or organizational behavior. If your paper is not accepted and because of this you choose not to participate, we will arrange a refund (excluding the Eventbrite Service Fee).
To register, please follow this link, which will take you to the Eventbrite website. Press the Tickets button there and then select one of the options, as explained below.
We have the following options for registering for the conference:
- Individual papers, please select "Single Paper Proposal" option and submit the paper title and abstract (up to about 200 words).
- Panels (3 papers minimum with a maximum of 5 per panel), please select the "Panel Proposal" option and you will be asked to submit an integrative statement explaining the panel (approximately 200 words), the titles of each paper and their authors, and an abstract for each paper (approximately 200 words). Each panel organizer must arrange that panelists (other than the panel submitter) register their papers individually once the panel has been approved (using the "Papers within panel proposal" option). If panel members fail to register their papers and confirm attendance, the conference organizers may place other, thematically-related, papers into the panel to ensure that each panel has more than one presentation.
- Papers within a Panel, please select the "Papers within a panel" option and submit the paper title and abstract (up to about 200 words).
- If you would like to attend, but do not want to present a paper or a panel, please choose the "Attendance Without Presenting" option on the registration page. You may select this option up until April 5, 2023.
All eligible participants will be able to put themselves forward for the Best Paper Award by a Junior Scholar and the Best Paper Award by a Senior Scholar. Information on how to do this is attached to this email. We will also be giving out a Lifetime Achievement Award for seminal contributions to the study of compliance, but that award recipient is chosen by the ComplianceNet steering committee.
We aim to notify prospective participants of panel/paper decisions by April 15, 2023. We look forward to seeing you at ComplianceNet 2023!
