Premiere institute hosts 3-day int’l conference on management research
CHENNAI: The Indian Institute of Technology Madras (IIT-M) recently hosted the inaugural edition of International Conference on Management Research (ICMR) 2023 on ‘Unchecking the Default: The Other Side of Everything’. “The conference opened up a realm of possibilities where we can push our boundaries, question what we consider to be the truth and counter conventional wisdom. By critically examining default beliefs and assumptions, we can uncover hidden inefficiencies, biases, and limitations that hinder our progress,” said Prof V Vijayalakshmi, IIT-M. Explaining further was another professor, M Thenmozhi, who said that providing a platform for the exchange of knowledge and ideas offering opportunities for collaborations for future research and innovation, and being updated on the current trends in research were the key outcomes. The conference was held between November 16-18, and brought together researchers, practitioners, industry experts, and policymakers from the field of management around the world. A total of 225 paper submissions were received from national and international authors.
