The 7th NRWC conference will be held 9-11 November 2021 in Umeå, Sweden. The conference will be arranged and hosted by the Umeå School of Business, Economics and Statistics.
Due to the ongoing concerns for the safety and all round feasibility of running an international conference, we have in consultation with the NRWC steering committee, taken the difficult decision to postpone the 7th NRWC. The new date for the conference is 9th -11th November 2021.
While the situation may be slightly improving and it might be that traveling restrictions and social distancing measures will be reduced by November, the organization of, and participation at, an event of such scale is not possible with so many variables beyond our control. When deciding to postpone the conference, we considered various alternative formats, but we opted for a physical conference, as one big aim of the conference is to bring together a scholarly community rather than merely being an occasion for presentation of research findings. We therefore really want to highlight that the conference is not cancelled – but postponed to 2021.
Since the review process has been concluded, the acceptance of papers will remain in place for the postponed conference in 2021. On a positive note, this gives you more time to complete your full-paper to submit to the special issue connected to the conference! For those of you wishing to do so, an additional extended call will allow for new submissions.
