Call for papers
The theme of the workshop is dynamics in buyer-seller relationships, including both business-to-consumer and business-to-business relationships. Relationship dynamics refer to all changes taking place in relationships; their beginnings, their ups and downs as well as their endings. The main purpose of the workshop is to give business and consumer researchers and doctoral students interested in the field of relationship dynamics an opportunity to present and discuss their research in informal workshop sessions. The theme for the 7th workshop, NoRD2012, will be “The complexity of Relationship Dynamics”. The goal is to open up for a fruitful and scientific discussion to expand our views and knowledge.
Each participant will have 45 minutes to discuss the paper and receive comments from the commentators and workshop participants. Moreover, to enhance co-operation and dissemination of ideas, the workshop includes teamwork on specific themes that are of current interest to the researchers. The goal is to come up with fresh research ideas on the challenging topic of relationship dynamics.
The workshop will this year be hosted by Umeå School of Business and Economics, Umeå University. The workshop will take place at Scandic Plaza Umeå. For further information about Umeå, accommodation and transportation etc. please visit the workshop website: www.usbe.umu.se/nord2012
