NRWC 2021

The 7th NRWC conference will be held 9-11 November 2021 in Umeå, Sweden. The conference will be arranged and hosted by Umeå School of Business, Economics and Statistics.

Registration for NRWC 2021 is now open

Since the fourth step of the Swedish governments abolition of restrictions are planned the 29th of September and that the number of people on gatherings will be taken away by then, we are hopeful that the conference will be in physical form. One big aim of the network and the conference is to bring together a scholarly community rather than merely being an occasion for presentation of research findings, making the physical meeting important.

We are of course following the development and due to this we have extended the registration until 24th of September to give more time to see the effects after the summer and to make sure that the restrictions are still planned to be taken away.

We have also extended the deadline for full paper until September 24, so there is still time to finish your papers for consideration in the special issue in The International Review of Retail, Distribution and Consumer Research. Submit your full paper to nrwc2020@umu.se with the title full paper submission. For author guideline see: www.tandfonline.com/action/authorSubmission?show=instructions&journalCode=rirr20


Please register on https://www.trippus.net/NRWC2020-delegate no later than September 24th 2021. Abstracts will be arranged by tracks according to common interests.
