Dear Colleagues and Friends,

The IMP Journal seminar 2017 will be held at the Campus of Prato of the University of Florence, in Prato, May 18th – 19th 2017.
The aim of the seminar is to discuss papers that present researches and conceptual issues on business networks and interaction in two directions – the one more specific and the second one more general. In particular we encourage papers debating the following two issues:
• Interaction in space – the role of proximity, communities and cross-boundary movements
• Understanding and dealing with uncertainty in the interactive landscape

The end result will be two special issues of THE IMP JOURNAL. The ambition with the IMP Journal seminar is threefold: To share and discuss ideas among authors, to enhance the quality of the papers, and last but not least, to improve the quality of the reviewer process.
Time table for paper production:

Provide abstract (minimum two pages) of a paper on one of the themes by 8th January 2017. Abstracts for each special issue will be shortly reviewed by the editors.

Submit full version by 24th February 2017. Reviews will be sent back by 7th April 2017.
Submit final papers by 4th May 2017. Following the seminar all authors will be asked to revise the paper according to the discussions with the reviewers and the editors and according to additional peer-reviews.
Timetable for the seminar:

The seminar starts at lunch time on Thursday, May 18th 2017 and will be concluded at lunch time on Friday May 19th 2017.

There is no fee for the seminar.
