    Extended submission deadline for the 2024 JPIM Research Forum: April 30th, 2024. 

    The submission deadline has been extended until April 30th, 2024, for the 2024 JPIM (Journal of Product Innovation Management) Research Forum. We welcome the following submissions on new product development and innovation management depending on the stages of your research projects: competitive papers, developmental papers, and posters. Awards will be given for the best competitive paper, best doctoral student paper, and best poster. Details can be found in the CFP provided in the link: JPIM Research Forum - PDMA.

    The conference will take place on September 14-15 in beautiful St. Louis, Missouri, a city famous for blues music, beer, and BBQ. The venue is the St. Louis Union Hotel, an iconic Hilton property in the former Union Train Station near downtown St. Louis and other tourist attractions. Fun local activities will be offered for attendees during the conference: a tram ride to the Gateway Arch, the tallest monument in the U.S., and a relaxing scenic cruise on the Mississippi River to see the city's beautiful riverfront.

    We are pleased to announce several exciting plenary sessions in addition to competitive paper sessions, a developmental paper workshop, and a poster competition:

    •    Dean Darren Dahl (University of British Columbia), one of the most impactful innovation and marketing scholars, will provide the keynote opening on the changing landscape of innovation research and the opportunities it presents. 
    •    Drs. Jelena Spanjol (LMU-Munich) and Gloria Barzcak (Northeastern University), current Editors-in-Chief, will offer a moderated panel discussion along with JPIM's new incoming editors about the journal's achievements and publishing in one of the world's top innovation outlets.
    •    Dr. Oguz A. Acar (King's College London) will talk about and deliver a hands-on workshop on integrating generative AI into teaching to enhance and support innovative education.
    •    Dr. Gina O'Connor (Babson College) will, in a bridge session between academicians and businesspersons, speak on connecting the worlds of scholarship and practice, while Drs. Aric Rindfleisch (University of Illinois) and Frank Piller (RWTH Aachen University) will share visions and research insights on the specific case of AI in innovation.

    Do not miss this great opportunity to network with innovation scholars, practitioners, JPIM's Editorial Team, and the PDMA community. We look forward to your submissions!
