BUFFALO, N.Y. -- The UB School of Management is reaching around the globe to co-sponsor the International Conference in Marketing, held January 12-14 at the Indian Institute of Management/Lucknow (IIML) in Noida, India.

Arun Jain, Samuel P. Capen Professor of Marketing Research in the School of Management, is one of the primary organizers of the conference and serves as co-chair.

Guided by the theme, “Shaping the Future of Research in Marketing in Emerging Economies: Looking Ahead,” the conference will focus on the emerging market economies (EMEs) of Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa.

“Because EMEs differ radically from mature economies, they raise new strategic questions that traditional marketing frameworks do not answer,” Jain said. “The aim of the conference is to bring together a distinguished panel of academicians, marketing experts and thought leaders from across the world to debate and discuss the research issues of marketing in EMEs.”

More than 900 authors submitted papers for the conference, with 174 papers from 21 countries accepted for presentation and 18 accepted for poster presentation. The three-day conference will feature 14 tracks and nine inclusive sessions.

Proceedings of the conference will be published by Prentice Hall, with Jain serving as co-editor. In addition, nine journals are slated to publish elected papers from the conference.
