All submissions are subject to double blind review process.


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.


This 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. Theoretical, empirical, and case-study papers will be acceptable in this Conference. The Conference is bilingual. Papers in Arabic or English will be considered. All submissions will be subject to double blind review process. The deadline for submissions is on December 1, 2003.
