The 2023 Southwest Case Research Association (SWCRA) meeting will be held in association with the Federation of Business Disciplines (FBD) conference in Houston, Texas, at the Hyatt Regency Hotel on March 8-11, 2023.
The SWCRA meeting begins on Thursday morning, March 9, 2023. The special guest speakers and symposia may address case development, case reviewing, case teaching, publication, and related issues. A popular format in recent years has featured live presentations by relevant company officials, and their thinking about critical decision issues. This open format has provided for questions and input from the audience. Roundtable case sessions, providing multiple reviews and feedback to authors, will take place on Thursday morning, March 9th. The program will conclude Thursday afternoon with a planning session to discuss the program for 2024. Our Thursday schedule is convenient for FBD participants who want to make the most of their travel funds by participating in other organizations as well.
SWCRA encourages the submission of teaching cases for the roundtable case sessions planned for Thursday, March 9th. Submitted cases must not have been presented or published previously or accepted for presentation or publication elsewhere. Accepted cases will be considered for the Best Case Award, and outstanding cases will be considered for publication in the Journal of Applied Case Research, a SWCRA publication. The deadline for receipt of all submissions is October 1, 2022. Each submission must have a title page with the name, affiliation, address, phone number, FAX number and email address of all authors, with the primary author (contact person) indicated. The main body of the submission must have a title only. All submissions will be double blind reviewed. The symposia may address case development, case reviewing, case teaching, publication, and related issues. Related research papers may be presented only in conjunction with the symposia.
