Globalization is a state that has profound implications. The variables, factors, consequences, demands, actions, and reactions, that are predicated by globalization are numerous, complex, and interacting. All fields of the administrative sciences are impacted. There is a need to understand, a need to provide new prescriptions, and a need to possibly teach differently. The impact is at the individual, organizational, and social levels. New opportunities and new threats are emerging and require new strategies and thinking. The implication to developing countries, in particular, is probably more significant and impacting.
Conference provides the opportunity to share and present ideas and findings
and to network with other academicians and practitioners. The domain of the Conference is broad and general. Again,
researchers, practitioners, and consultants in all fields and areas of the
administrative sciences and related fields are invited to participate.

Conference. The Conference is bilingual. Papers in Arabic or English will be
