1998 INTERNATIONAL CALL FOR PAPERS

Healthcare Management Division
of the
INTERNATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF MANAGEMENT

16th Annual International Conference
Chicago, Illinois
August 5-8, 1998

* symposia * panels * workshops * case studies * proposals

This year we have the special opportunity to offer a new Division and
12 separate Tracks dedicated to research in Health Care Management at
the International Association of Management Annual Conference. We will
be offering numerous workshops and technical sessions in this timely
and exciting area.

As the Division Co-chairs we encourage you to participate in the
Association's 1998 conference. Last year's conference will result in
publication of the fourth issue of Research in Healthcare Financial
Management again as a special series issue of the International
Association of Management Journal. We have assembled a prestigious,
international Board of Editorial Advisors, and plan to publish the fifth
issue in 1998.

The Health Care Management Division has a broad scope and welcomes
papers discussing practical applications and teaching innovations, as
well as those pertaining to theoretical and empirical research. Papers
on research in progress may also be accepted for presentation at the
technical session.

Topic areas include all issues relevant to the management of
healthcare organizations or public healthcare financing policy and
reform-including accounting, economics, finance, management,
marketing, and public health administration.

All submissions are subject to an international blind review process,
including the most distinguished Health Care Management academicians
and practitioners from across North America and their counterparts in
the UK, Europe and Asia. Outstanding papers will be published in the
refereed, special series journal issue, Research in Healthcare Financial
Management. Other accepted papers or abstracts will also be published
in the International Association of Management 1998 Conference
Proceedings.

We also encourage you to accept leadership roles for the 1998
conference as either a Discussant or Reviewer. Performance of these
roles is vital to the success of the conference, and additional
recognition will be given to those who serve in leadership roles.

The 1998 conference will be held on August 5-8 in Chicago, Illinois,
with our Health Care Management Division technical sessions (HCM 1-12)
being held early in the conference.

FOUR COPIES of all draft submissions, along with a DISK COPY (in
Microsoft Word or ASCII Text), should be mailed or (preferably) sent as
email attachments by March 15, 1998 to:
