Call for Papers: 50th Societas Ethica Annual Conference; Soesterberg, Netherlands
This will be the 50th Societas Ethica Annual Conference. It is realized in cooperation with the ESF Network “Rights to a Green Future” and the Ethics Institute in Utrecht.
Climate change, dwindling resources, and growth of the global population have emerged as challenges for all areas of political action in modern societies. These challenges have been on the political agenda since the “Limits to Growth” report was released in 1972. While the challenges are well known, and while there appears to be some form of consensus that sustainability is a goal worth striving for, there is little discussion of how the changes necessary to achieve this goal will affect our political institutions, our social relationships, our moral responsibilities, and our self-understanding in general.
Societas Ethica Young Scholars’ Award:
The Young Scholars’ Award is awarded to the best presentation by a young scholar at the Societas Ethica Annual conference.
Young scholars for the purpose of this competition are PhD student and PhDs who earned their degree less than two years ago and do not have a tenure-track academic position. If you wish to be considered for the YSA, please indicate this in the file with the personal information accompanying your abstract.
For more information about Societas Ethica Young Scholars’ Award, please visit the website at www.societasethica.info.

Call for Papers: Business Ethics: Expectations and Disappointments
Submission Deadline: March 14, 2012
Contributions are sought for a special issue of the Australian Journal of Professional and Applied Ethics. The AJPAE is particularly interested in papers that address the following themes:
Spirituality and business ethics: Interest in spirituality within the workplace has grown exponentially in recent years – both from instrumental and normative perspectives. What have we learnt so far? How are the paradigms compatible with one another? How do we manage the demands of the different ‘spirits’: the spirit of capitalism, the spirit of Mother Earth, the spirit of religions, the spirit of Man, the spirit of Woman – amongst others?
Myths in business ethics: Dissatisfied with current trends in the field, a growing number of scholars ‘go back to basics’ and re-read original texts from philosophers, economists or early management theorists with hopes of clarifying assumptions most take for granted. What assumptions should be questioned? Which myths pervade the business ethics area? How did they form and develop? What could they tell us about ethics, business and people?
Business, Society and Policy: Business operates within a social and political context. At the same time, business also shapes that context. What are the relationships between business practices, societal expectations and public policy-making? How does business seek to influence public policy and public opinion (in the past, in the present)? How has that influence shaped social outcomes in areas, for example, of distributive justice and environmental sustainability? How can we make it better?
Papers submitted for publication in the journal will be blind refereed. Full details of the submission guidelines are available at: http://www.cappe.edu.au/publications/ajpae.htm#Information_for_Authors
Manuscripts should be submitted to the Guest Editor, Peter McGhee at firstname.lastname@example.org by 14 March 2012. Authors will be notified of the acceptance or otherwise of their submission by 16 April 2012. This special issue is scheduled to be published in the second half of 2012.

Special Issue: Stakeholder Theory and Workplace Spirituality (and/or Religion)
Guest Editor: Andrew Wicks
Stakeholder Theory has become an important and prevalent theory that informs scholarship in a wide array of domains – from ethics, to management, the functional areas of business (e.g. accounting, finance, marketing), law, health care, public policy and others. While this literature has grown and expanded, little has been written that specifically connects stakeholder theory to spirituality and religion in the workplace. This special issue aims to focus the attention of scholars on better understanding how stakeholder theory might provide new insights and enrich current thinking on the topic of spirituality and religion in the workplace.
Submission Deadline: Authors should submit original papers (up to 30 pages of double-spaced text, including references and tables) by March 1, 2012. All submissions will be peer reviewed.

Call for Papers: The Henry Kaufman Conference on Religious Traditions and Business Behavior
Submission Deadline: Feb 1, 2012
More Information: Website
The Center for Financial Policy
at the University of Maryland's Robert H. Smith School of Business announces a Call for Papers and Proposals for the Henry Kaufman Conference on Religious Traditions and Business Behavior.
This conference explores two central questions in the relationship between the world’s major religious traditions and the business behavior of adherents to those traditions: First, what do the world’s major organized religious traditions – Protestantism, Catholicism, Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, Judaism – prescribe about business and financial ethics and behavior? Second, how and why have business and financial actors seriously compromised the leading religious traditions of their cultures?
By interrogating these two core questions, the conference will yield insights valuable to contemporary business and religious leaders about abiding questions. Complete details at www.rhsmith.umd.edu

The 39th OBTC Teaching Conference for Management Educators
Sustainability: Sustaining Ourselves, Students, Community, and Global World
Conference Date: June 20-23, 2012
When we speak of sustainability, we often think of “green” or the environment these days, but truthfully, sustainability is all around us and impacts us daily at multiple levels, so much so that we often are not mindful of it when we act. If innovation fuels our fire, then sustainability ensures that fire continues to burn. How often do we engage in a new venture only to find that it is short-lived and its full potential is not achievable? In times of economic downturns and turbulence, we need to ask ourselves at what cost do we try to maintain our way of life? We as educators need to continuously ask ourselves how is it possible to sustain our passion for learning and teaching when a new idea can get old pretty quickly? How can we sustain our enthusiasm for teaching when we are bombarded with potential constraints or obstacles? Often the concept of sustainability goes unrecognized and untapped, due to our own oversight or lack of deep thinking.
In this conference, participants are encouraged to engage in an ongoing dialogue that has the potential to allow the exchange of new ideas, approaches, awareness, and practices to enhance our lives and our work.
Conference submissions (up to 5 pages) should be uploaded to the central submission website (https://obtc.org) by December 15, 2011
