The University of the West will host the 24th International Conference on the Pacific Rim Management that will be held from July 10th to 12th, 2014. This conference is organized by the Association for Chinese Management Educators (ACME). Dr. Bill Y. Chen, professor and CFO of the UWest, currently is the President of this association.

The ACME’s goal is to provide a forum for management educators and practitioners to exchange information and to stimulate cooperation with both academic and nonacademic organizations in the Pacific Rim region. Specifically for this conference, the ACME aims to explore and discuss opportunities and challenges to form networks and collaborations to further advance management theory and practice.

The deadline to submit a paper for the presentation is April 30th, 2014. Any paper on topics related with business/management is welcome. Submitted papers will be peer-reviewed by committee members and may be published by the association’s annual refereed journal—International Journal of Management Theory and Practice. For the conference information and paper submission, one can go to the ACME’s website at
