The objectives of this theme aim to explore the link between Information Systems in Accounting, Auditing and Finance practices, as well as to develop a broader and more inclusive view of Blockchain disruptive potential and its value and to leverage new business strategies. Thus, we seek to contribute with discussions about the impact of Blockchain and other new technologies given the use of information and the decision-making process, promoting discussions related with structure, regulate, control and model processes in private and public organizations.

The transformations brought by new technologies have impact in business structures, creating opportunities as well as challenges for organizations. The greater data volume and the digital transformation of different processes help organizations to improve outcome and efficiency analysis. However, at the same time, organizations are under pressure to demonstrate greater transparency, with internal controls and information quality management to different stakeholders.

At the same time, traditional aspects of management are being replaced with new forms of organizational practices and to new business models, implying constant structural changes. Regardless of these trends, many organizations are still finding a way to balance the improvement of their current operations with the new opportunities offered by emerging technologies.

This context requires an interdisciplinary analysis regarding the opportunities and challenges, combining the technical-theoretical knowledge from professionals inside organizations’ compliance departments with the theoretical-empirical knowledge of the Information Systems professionals. Besides, the current context also demands professionals with analytical skills, trained to work with different technologies and their implications in the most diverse organizational processes.

Some potential topics include, but are not limited to:

- Transparency, Accountability and New Technologies
- Technologies applied to Internal Control and Fraud Detection.

How and why do we decide in a certain way? This is a central question asked by Hammerstein and Stevens (2012) in the book “Evolution and Mechanisms of the Decision-Making Process”. They claim that our choices are governed by cognitive mechanisms shaped over time, through the process of natural selection. From the detection of signals and memory, to individual and social learning, evolution has created in us strong previous concepts about how and when we process information, and it is these evolved cognitive building blocks that provide the basis for our choices. For a specific decision maker, the decisions made for the same problem at different times can be different, because their preference is not always constant. Most individuals would like to believe that their decisions are rational and well-founded; however, research has shown that, as a rule, this does not occur (MARCH, 1994). It is believed that experience, knowledge and intuition can be guided through the decision-making process, but the inherent limitation of objectively processing information often leads the decision maker to failures in the choice process (RIABACKE, 2012). In addition to the study of human behavior and cognition, or rather, based on these studies, there is an increasing search for the implementation of systems through models, algorithms that can assist or even replace human beings in decision making. Lepri et al. (2018) claim that the combination of greater availability and large amounts of refined human behavioral data, as well as advances in machine learning, are generating an increasing dependence on algorithms to solve complex social problems. Algorithmic decision-making processes can lead to more objective and, therefore, potentially more just decisions than those made by human beings that can be influenced by greed, prejudice, fatigue or hunger. However, algorithmic decision making has been criticized for its potential to increase discrimination, information asymmetry and power.
In this theme, studies can be submitted that deal with: use of information; techniques and systems for decision making; modeling; conceptual models in decision; systems and techniques to support decision making; development and evaluation of SAD; process modeling with mathematical models; simulation; optimization; network models; stochastic processes; Linear Programming; simulation; multicriteria methods; expert and artificial intelligence systems; Artificial neural networks; neuro-IS; fuzzy logic; and machine learning. Other matters related to the decision-making process are welcome. Papers with different methodological approaches are accepted, whether qualitative, quantitative or mixed.

Society, like the business world, is undergoing a process of digital transformation (Li, 2018) that was accelerated by the pandemic by COVID-19 (Soto-Acosta, 2020). This transformation is due to recent technological advances that have allowed the emergence of new business models, which are now transforming the industrial age through digital technologies. Many of these transformations are due to the adoption of 4.0 industry technologies that generate new business models and blockchain.

Industry 4.0 is considered the fourth industrial revolution; it is based on the idea of creating smart digital factories, facilitating interconnection, and computerization in a traditional industry, making business more flexible and responsive to market trends (Lu, 2017). Industry technologies 4.0 (e.g., Internet of Things, big data, cloud computing, analytics) enable organizations to troubleshoot in an innovative and/or seize opportunities through new resource rearrangements and new business models, having been perceived as a source of differentiation in the market.

The new business models have used digital technologies to gain a competitive advantage (Fernandes et al., 2017). For this, companies need to improve their performance by investing in digital technologies and developing digital capabilities.

The objective of this track is to conceptualize, theorize, and present reasonable evidence of how digital transformation occurs in organizations through the adoption and use of new technologies as well as the development of organizational capacities.

The following questions are suggested:
• What are the capabilities needed for digital transformation?
• How do organizations develop capabilities to leverage digital transformation and gain competitive advantage?
• How are business models designed, transformed, and managed in the digital age?
• How to propose value through the use of 4.0 industry technologies?
• How to manage organizational resources in the digital age?

In this context, this theme of Digital Transformation invites authors to submit their articles on the following topics, but not restricted to them:
• Digital Capabilities and Business Models
• Creating value in a digital transformation environment
• The innovation of the business model using industry technologies 4.0
• Development, evaluation and value-added of IT capabilities and new business models in the era of Industry 4.0 technologies: Internet of Things (IoT); Cloud Computing; Big data; Analytics; Machine Learning; augmented reality; mobile computing; autonomous vehicles (including drones); autonomous systems or robots; and others.

The possible theoretical approaches suggested are Resource-Based View, Actor-Network Theory, Institutional Theory, but not limited to them, we accept other theories coherent with the researched topic. We encourage qualitative, quantitative, mixed methodologies, and Design Science Research (DSR). The theoretical-empirical, applied, and technological articles can have the context of research in both private and public organizations.

Knowledge is an intangible asset relevant to obtaining sustainable competitive advantage, which makes its management relevant. Knowledge management comprises a set of processes aimed at creating, storing, sharing, applying and protecting knowledge, aiming to meet organizational objectives. Information technology, while facilitating knowledge management, can also increase the risks of losing the competitive advantage obtained. In this way, organizations need to balance activities that promote knowledge sharing and protection, in order to maintain their competitiveness. There are several antecedents that can leverage knowledge management in the organization, such as social capital, as well as mediating the relationship of its processes with innovation or organizational performance, such as absorptive capacity. The proposed theme involves the study of resources and capacities focused on knowledge at the individual, team, intra-organizational and inter-organizational levels. Papers with different methodological approaches are accepted, whether qualitative, quantitative or mixed. In this context, this theme “Knowledge Management: antecedents, processes and results” invites authors to submit their articles on the following themes, but not restricted to them:
Mechanisms for knowledge sharing
Balance between sharing and protecting knowledge
Social and behavioral issues of knowledge management
Absorptive capacity and dynamic capabilities
Knowledge retention and accumulation
Knowledge management and information technology
Knowledge management and social media
Knowledge management and project management
Results of knowledge management

Faced with the dynamics of competitiveness, with challenges that include increasing competition, increasingly informed customers, rapid technological advances, and other evolutionary factors that generate expectations, organizations that want to innovate must develop capabilities to transform environmental changes into strategies that are always relevant to markets. in transformation. In turbulent environments, the pressure further increases to be proactive to market demands for innovative solutions. One of the fundamental concerns of organizations is to identify, in the environment, variable elements that may enhance their innovative performance and sources of lasting competitive advantage in order to prepare to face potential threats and / or seize competitive opportunities. Through the establishment of structured environmental monitoring processes aimed at capturing and interpreting informational elements for a better understanding of the ecosystem, Intelligence enhances the perception of pertinent signals, converting them into insights that support the anticipation of environmental changes. Intelligence is strongly associated with strategy as it relates to activities that enable mindful organizations to reduce uncertainties in the evolving environment by feeding differentiated information into strategic planning and decision making, strengthening organizational capacities to compete successfully and grow. with results. Such an association results in Strategic Intelligence, which concerns the organization's ability to adapt and anticipate changing business environment circumstances in a long-term view. Establishing Strategic Intelligence requires people, processes, and tools that, together, leverage the conversion of environmental information for adaptation and organizational evolution. With processes that support the development of sustainable competitive advantages through the systematic detection of environmental signals, Intelligence has been considered a distinctive factor in organizational sustainability, requiring efforts in the pursuit of establishing differential processes, supported by tools and technologies that facilitate, by an implied collective, the conversion of signals into differential insights. In response to this problem, the Strategic Management and Information Systems literature offers concepts associated with Strategic Intelligence (IE), in its variants such as strategic scanning, strategic foresight and corporate foresight, as well as directions that generate nomenclatures associated with IE, such as Anticipative Intelligence, Collective Intelligence, Prospective Intelligence, Organizational Intelligence, Competitive Intelligence, Market Intelligence, among other monitoring practices that help organizations keep a close eye on their environment. In this line, other terminologies have been associated with the Intelligence function under a more technological perspective, bringing discussions about how Big Data, Data Science, Data Mining, Artificial Intelligence, among others, can contribute and improve the Intelligence process, opening a whole new range. of studies, applications, and possibilities. In the meantime, the purpose of the Strategic Intelligence track is to motivate researchers in the development and presentation of research related to the various types of intelligence activity, aiming to contribute to the expectation that this approach can support corporate strategy in the early identification of actions for business sustainability. Papers with different methodological approaches are accepted, whether qualitative, quantitative or mixed.

Public Administration, considered as an operative agent of the State, is required to reorganize itself, and to elaborate management models that meet social, political and economic requirements and needs. The reformulation and modernization of the public administration, in order to rationalize actions and increase the effectiveness of its institutions, responding with agility and competence to the demands of the Government and society, are increasingly necessary.

The new theoretical perspectives point towards both a greater importance and a greater complexity of the role of the State, arguing that efficient public institutions and new political connections with society become fundamental in the provision of services associated with the expansion of human capacities (POLLITT ; BOUCKAERT, 2000).

For Pacheco (2010), Brazil faces a double challenge in its public administration: first, the construction of a bureaucracy along the Weberian lines, which has remained unfinished since the first attempt to modernize the state under the Vargas regime; second, to provide it with professionalism regarding competence, commitment to results and performance. In other words, the challenge of associating the rational-legal principles of the bureaucratic model with effective management and guided by organizational performance and the creation of public value.

Considering these aspects, the relevance and pertinence of the proposition of the theme State, Organizations and Public Management: reforms and innovations within the Public Administration Division are justified.

According to Kliksberg (1992, p.45), public administration and its functioning, modernization of the State and administrative reforms are not unhistorical: “they are part of a global historical process that marked it deeply in its central and which she in turn contributed to modeling. (...) His visceral historicity determines that many of the problems he presents are not endogenous; they are the manifestations, at their level, of structural problems of society as a whole ”

In view of the above, this theme will welcome theoretical, empirical and / or theoretical-empirical studies on 1) strategies, structure, actors, processes, relations and power intrinsic to the State and its public administration; 2) crises and reforms in the Executive, Legislative and Judiciary, both in the national and international context; 3) relations between powers and governance, 4) changes in the configurations, roles and functions assumed by the State; 5) public bureaucracy; 6) innovation and entrepreneurship in public management; 7) Organizational competence in public management

This theme means to discuss the characteristics, potentialities, challenges and dilemmas that emerge in the relationship between the State and distinct civil society organizations, formalized or not. In a time of proliferation of governance arrangements across various sectors and levels of government, relations between the State and civil society - whether collaborative or confrontative, spontaneous or forced - are structural components of democracy and have a direct effect on how society deals with what is public and with public problems.

The proposals of the New Public Management movement, which recommends hiring non-profit organizations to deliver public services, still resonate in academic bodies and in public management, to promote efficiency. However, the possibilities of relationship between the State, citizens and civil society organizations go beyond this type of interaction, contemplating a diversity of forms and content to define and deal with public problems, which can be understood as part of a New Public Governance. Besides efficiency, elements such as collaboration, pluralism, transparency, trust, citizen participation and accountability are valued as a means to produce public goods and services and to deal with complex democracy challenges. Some of these values ??and practices, however, can be considered relevant or useful even in non-democratic contexts. The relations between the State and civil society, when meaning to collaborate, also include conflict, negotiation and mediation of diverse interests, even forms of co-option and coercion. In this sense, the practices covered in this theme may consist of, but are not restricted to:
a) Democratic governance, collaboration, partnerships and the coproduction of public goods and services;
b) Advocacy and the civil society’s role in the formulation, implementation, evaluation and monitoring of public actions;
c) Relations between governments and civil society, participatory institutions and mechanisms, and the contribution to the increase of transparency, control and accountability;
d) Conflict, cooptation and mobilization and articulation mechanisms to control the exercise of power;
e) Actions aimed at territorial development, including social technologies, notably those bringing qualitative and quantitative investigations that point to non-state organizations’ actions as public interest drivers.

Considering the contemporary context, this theme embraces with particular attention, but not only, papers focused on the following matters:
- The relationship created between civil society and governments to deal with the COVID-19 pandemic, the environmental crisis, the inequality increase and with social, cultural and political elements arising from this context;
- Understanding of the management and articulation strategies adopted by civil society to enhance its performance in relation to the solution of public problems;
- The advance of authoritarianism and the setback in the participation agenda, with the potential to close the dialogue and partnerships between governments and civil society organizations, reducing participatory institutions.

The theme aims to debate how the federal pact and intergovernmental relations in Brazil have been affected by the critical Brazilian situation marked by the dispute and confrontation between different spheres of government. This issue is particularly acute in social welfare policies, in which decentralization and accountability for implementation at the subnational level is accompanied by federal coordination and funding. This model of federative cooperation materialized, above all, through public policy systems has been a central mark, at least, of the last two decades. Since the overlapping of competences, originally conceived by the constitutional framework in numerous matters over the years, several federal recentralization measures have been added and reduced the autonomy of the subnational spheres. To this also could be added the intensification of a conflicting federative dynamic that affects intergovernmental cooperation. The COVID-19 pandemic triggered and opened especially a logic of federative disputes in which subnational governments have started competed with the Federal Government in terms of protagonism. A deleterious effect has been the loss of interconnection between political actors and the institutional functioning of public policies, which places the epidemiological crisis at the center of the dimension of territorial politics that affects federations and countries with federalized mechanisms. In the case of Brazil, this process is strongly influenced by federal political inaction in the fight against Pandemic, which has induced a type of political game that needs to be analyzed in perspective, as its effects on public policies and intergovernmental cooperation must be prolonged. Intergovernmental relations were already in a process of change before this crisis, but their effects intensified during the pandemic, when the need for a coordinating role for the Union became more evident. This is because health crises require strong government coordination, especially in federal countries characterized by complex intergovernmental problems.

The theme proposes to discuss researches and applied studies and applications of public policies in a multi and interdisciplinary perspective and also in the tradition of policy orientation. 'Policy oriented' studies, as defined in the policy sciences literature, are those that accumulate aspects of multidisciplinarity (and interdisciplinarity), normativity and animosity in problem solving for public wellbeing. The theme seeks to emphasize the analysis of cases of governmental and public policies, programs, projects and activities, as well as non-state and / or societal public actions that relate to governmental public policies in the most diverse dimensions and sectors of intervention: economic, social, environmental, cultural, infrastructure, educational, science, technology and innovation, administrative intervention, territorial development policies, programs and projects, among others possibilities. The theme focuses on techniques and tools of public policies with applied approach, particularly on the process of intervention and social and organizational changes. Other theoretical matrices that feed into the debate on the achievement and applicability of public policy will also be considered for contradictory analysis. Methodologically, the theme prioritizes case studies, multi-cases and comparative analyzes without, however, discarding other research methods. The assembly of the sections will be carried out primarily by sectoral public policies, however considering the sectoral interrelationship, when applicable.

The theme is intended for works on public service management from the perspective of providing public services in specific sectors: energy, transport, telecommunications, water resources, sanitation, health, education, public security, citizen service, among others. Modes of the provision of public services: direct or delegated provision; privatization, publicity, deregulation, concession, coproduction, and outsourcing. New organizational formats and the provision of public services: social organizations (OSs), Civil Society Organization of Public Interest (OSCIPS), Public-Private Partnerships (PPPs), and autonomous social services. Executive agencies and regulatory agencies.

Justification for the proposal
The presentation of the theme is justified by including fundamental topics in public organizations and public services management. With technological advances, public administration reforms, and government concerns regarding results-oriented public management, reflections on organizational models, governance structures, and institutional arrangements that facilitate the delivery of quality public services are indispensable. Also, all professionals work and research the topics listed in the proposal: public administration, public services, public service delivery, management of public organizations, coproduction of public services, and public policies, among others. Another factor considered in team building is their participation in several graduation programs from several Brazilian institutions, as we can see by their curriculum. Also, all researchers have the publication of a high impact in their fields.

This track aims to bring together papers dealing with the role of public management for the pursuit of public interest. Current themes include: management functions and tools for strategic planning, organizing, leading and controlling. Decision-Making Styles in public agencies. Administrative structures, processes and behaviors in public organizations across different functional areas: human resources management, communication, leadership and organizational culture in public sector organizations; marketing and service quality management and improvement in the public sector; heritage and materials management; logistics, operations and supplies; public sector accounting and financial management; process management, digital governance, e-government and use of ICTs. Emerging management approaches and techniques in public organizations, such as: project management, knowledge management, matrix organizations, digital transformation in the public sector, design thinking, stakeholder analysis, public entrepreneurship, among others. It is a relevant topic as it proposes to bring together research that explores the paths for quality public management on its most different fronts, that is, in its functional areas. Especially in the current global crisis, which poses different restrictions and limitations to public organizations, combined with a conjecture of transformations in the environmental context - for example, those related to social and technological changes, among others - it becomes even more fundamental to direct research efforts that aim at gathering engaged scholars investigating organizational efficiency and quality in the provision of public services.

In the Brazilian public administration scenario, the discussion regarding ontological and epistemological matrices has been raised aiming to report the importance of comprehending the field through a plural perspective. More precisely, there is the need to think of new, little explored metatheoretical paths, inspired by frameworks diverse in the analysis of the new demands of contemporary public administration. There is also a lack of studies that use critical, hermeneutic and phenomenological approaches – here specifically the critical theory as a guide to studies in public administration. Therefore, this theme proposes to strengthen an agenda of researches that discuss the theoretical strengthening of the public administration field beyond the empirical perspective. It is sought, above all, to strengthen a disciplinary, interdisciplinary and/or multidisciplinary investigation in public administration. Work proposals aimed at articulating public administration both in technical and political, social and cultural perspectives, are welcomed. Thus, the theme turns to the debate on the multi/interdisciplinary theoretical foundations of public administration. Construction process, design and development of the field of public administration from the ontological, epistemological and methodological perspectives. Paradigms and models of public management. Discussions on the theoretical approaches that focus on reflection and analysis of the objects of field study: currents of institutionalism, new public management, new public service, public governance, and others. Studies on the methodological perspectives in public administration research.

n the last fifteen years, in the wake of the celebration of several important events, such as the 200 years of the transfer of the Portuguese Court to Rio de Janeiro and the 130 years of the Republic, alongside more permanent initiatives, punctual (but significant) efforts have emerged that attest to the renewed interest in historical studies in the field of public administration. Thus, several recent publications have joined the vigorous historiographical production that flourished in the area until the 1980s.
It is true that we are far from the vigor of academic production of essays and textbooks from the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s. But in 2019, the Republic completed 130 years and in the next 2022, Brazil will celebrate 200 years of Independence. Certainly, interest in the topic will grow and raise the value of intellectual production in the field.
On the other hand, little progress has been made towards incorporating the main achievements of contemporary historiography into this historiographical production. In fact, most of the recent work that contributed to the renewal of the field did little to overcome the limitations indicated by the critic that addressed the monumental Administrative History of Brazil, started by DASP in the 1950s.
The rediscovery of the importance of historical knowledge and the mutual influence between countries in the field of Public Administration must be accompanied by the renewal of themes, sources and research methods, with the production of dissertations, articles and books that discuss the transformations of the State and Administration Brazilian public in a historical and comparative perspective. There is much to discuss about this process, especially at the present moment in Brazilian life when all institutions are at stake. As Unamuno has already said, we need to know history to avoid repeating it. Neither as a tragedy nor as a farce.
The theme welcomes works that rescue the memory of the Brazilian Public Administration, historiographical studies on Brazilian education and comparative studies, particularly with other countries in Latin America. Important objects for discussion and analysis are: State History, institutional history and administrative history, Public Administration Memory, Evolution of Public Management, Comparative Studies. Historiography of the Brazilian Public Administration. Sources for the history of Public Administration. Memory of the Brazilian Public Administration. Life stories. Statesmen. Public Administration in Latin America. Administration for development. Public Administration in an international perspective.
In this sense, it addresses Public Administration as a total social fact, establishing connections between economic, social, political, cultural and institutional transformations, rescuing the memory of the trajectory of public management and valuing comparative studies.

Recent studies on social management indicate that its definition seeks to incorporate aspects related to citizenship spaces, interorganizational relations and public administration. The proposal is to incorporate social management into community practice, showing its potential to develop in different contexts.
Therefore, it is considered that the interfaces between Public Management and Social Management discuss the intersections and theoretical and methodological distinctions, as well as the practices between social management, public administration and development. Participatory democracy expects a closer relationship between the state and society whose protagonist ceases to be the state that mediates discussions and deliberations with the various actors of civil society. In this regard, and especially considering the challenges of the current political and social context of the country, it is relevant to propose articles involving research on: Social management, governance and public policies. Social management, transparency and accountability. Social management and co-production of public goods. Social management in sustainable development programs and projects - social, environmental and territorial dimensions. Social Management in cultural policies. Social policy management: inequality, justice and democracy. Social innovation, collective action and cooperation for the common good. Active citizenship, participation and public action. Social management and social control in public collective environments: forums, collegiate boards and councils.
The purpose of this theme is to explore academic research that seeks to contribute to the theoretical advance in the interfaces between Social Management and Public Management - with theoretical and conceptual models, as well as with empirical applications that seek to analyze pragmatic examples. Such proposal is believed to be relevant to researchers and research groups in the area.

Governance for Sustainability in Public Management discusses studies related to the United Nations development agenda in 2030, which requires "a supremely ambitious and transformative vision" and proposes seventeen Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to guarantee good health and wellbeing for countries, our planet and future generations. The SDGs outline an ambitious agenda that individuals, public and private organizations and society have great potential and the capacity to contribute. Sustainable development and the 2030 agenda, in particular, brought together a wide range of stakeholders from science, civil society, government and business. Many expressed their commitments to improve the well-being of the planet and society and join efforts to implement the agenda. A growing body of research has developed in recent decades on the governance of sustainable development. However, important gaps still exist. Thus, the theme invites articles that involve research on the various experiences of implementing the agenda in the different objectives and levels of governance and unresolved issues related to the role, capacity and impacts of companies, governments, society and international organizations to address sustainable development issues. Each of the above perspectives has an institutional dynamic that directs corporations in certain (non) sustainable directions, and these dynamics vary across scales, places and sectors. Attention to the meta roles of organizations in governance, that is, steering, making or breaking good governance and the level at which it occurs, that is, micro, meso and macro.

Race Relations in Brazil is a little discussed topic in the field of Administration, Public Administration and Public Policy. Our society has denied the existence of racism as a structuring element for our underdevelopment process and a driving cause of the various forms of social inequality. The hegemonic myth of racial democracy from the end of slavery until the mid-1980s presupposed the harmonious coexistence of blacks and whites, unlike the situations of the US or South Africa. From the historical denunciations of civil society Organized led by the various currents of the black movement and the analysis of vertical relations in all sectors of society, this Brazilian utopia was stripped to reveal intense racial inequalities expressed in countless social indicators. Only in the last two decades has the government recognized this social abyss and implemented measures to address it. Until the last century, governmental measures were restricted to initiatives to combat (repressive) racism and to value the African (culturalist) matrix. This new response from the Brazilian government was due to the increasingly qualified pressure from black movements, academics and progressive sectors, as well as institutional tension in universities, subnational governments and societal organizations. The literature shows that from the results of the Third World Conference against Racism (Durban, 2001), Brazil became one of the countries that most implemented public policies to combat racism and promote racial equality in accordance with the UN Plan of Action. Conference: creation of the Ministry for the Promotion of Racial Equality and several similar state and municipal agencies. However, the economic and political-institutional crisis that has been plaguing the country since 2013, has had harmful consequences for the sustainability of all the arrangements created. In addition to several ideological resistances to the new public management model, recent years have shown a political slowdown, loss of institutional space and problems in implementing strategic actions, such as frauds in affirmative action policies for access to universities and public jobs and poor adherence to anti-racist policy in schools. Given this scenario, we seek to discuss the advances and challenges in the field of Public Administration and Public Policy regarding the integral treatment of Race Relations as an endogenous element to the object of research and teaching of these areas of knowledge. The topics proposed for articulation of race relations, public administration and/or public policies: structural and institutional racism; political administration and ethnic racial relations in contemporary Brazil; affirmative action; transversality and intersectionality; public security policies; race relations, bureaucracy and institutional arrangements; administrative records and data analysis on black population; representative bureaucracy; racial issues, public problems and democracy; black entrepreneurs; migration, a new black diaspora and racism.

Abstract:

Discusses the relationship between public administration, participation and the democratic rule of law. Democratic experiments as practices to increase effectiveness, legitimacy, social justice and innovation in public administration. Scope and limits of democratic participatory action in political systems, governance and public action in governmental and non-governmental organizations, institutions and territories. Dynamics of collective learning, public investigation, social control and accountability, social innovations and innovations in the public sector and co-construction of responses to public problems, based on social participation and collaborative governance processes.

Justification:

This theme seeks to open space for debates, theoretical and empirical, on the phenomenon of “democratic experimentation”, based on participatory action in public administration. It focuses on bottom-up processes based on democratic participation and in the interface between different actors, resources, practices and knowledge in public management.

In Brazil, as well as in other countries, after the re-democratization, the Constitution and the regulatory frameworks of the public administration started to encourage a collaborative public management co-built by public managers and other civil society agents, strengthening systems of deliberative democracy (Midlej and Silva, 2019). However, more recently, we have witnessed the resumption of more authoritarian government regimes around the world, with anti-democratic speeches and refractory to participation. In this new scenario and, in view of the challenges posed by the COVID-19 Pandemic, there is a need and urgency to (re) discuss the processes of democratic experimentation and their relationship with the public administration.

This debate is current and very important, especially in view of the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, and the crises of modern democracies around the world, cosidering their consequences in public administration and public governance. This opens up a broad research agenda on the scope and limits of collaborative governance and other forms of democratic action in renewing public administration, both at the international level (Fung and Wright, 2003, Bohman, 2012; Ansell, 2007, 2012; Ansell and Torfing, 2018, Ansell, Sorensen and Torfing, 2020) and in Brazil (Milani, 2008; Vaz, 2011; Avritzer, 2017; Andion et al, 2017; Midlej e Silva, 2019, Andion, 2020).

In view of this, the scientific and practical relevance of this panel is placed, which aims to broaden the understanding of the scope and limits of new democratic experiments to advance and create new debate agendas and new practices in public administration. In particular, we are interested in exploring new theoretical and analytical perspectives for the study of democratic experiments and participatory action in different fields of practice such as political systems, public governance, public policy management, public action in territories, institutions and governmental and non-governmental organizations.

This topic proposal aims to address the interfaces, dialogues, and convergence between the management science field (MSF) and the studies of the international. We start from the premise that at the international and global levels one may find phenomena and social processes which particularities have been meddling the objects of MSF such as business, the State, public policies, management and sustainability of civil society’s organizations, and even the capitalist modes of development and production, among others. Thus, in several Management, Accountant and Tourism graduate programs are a growing interest in cross borders, supranational, and even global subjects and social process.

Besides the business internationalization topic, the main ideia here it to gather those research works from the grand area of management and organizational studies, but also interdisciplinary, which approachs: (i) multi, inter, and supranational organizations; (ii) international cooperation (agenda, management, effectiveness, and Public and Social Administration’s imbrication); (iii) international/global governance; (iv) capital internationalization, world-system analysis and world-economy; (v) the relations between international agenda and local public policies; (vi) international civil society organizations; (vii) global productive chains; (viii) geopolitics and geostrategy of business and firm; (IX) 2030 Agenda for the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) and The Decade of Action. Other MSF international phenomena’s research works will be gladly welcome.

This theme encourages research that seek to study bureaucracy (as structure and actors) and its contemporary transformations from multiple analytical lenses. The theme welcomes studies that focus on contemporary bureaucratic trends and functions, such as autonomy, the role of auditing, supervisory and controlling bodies (such as the courts of account, controllers, public prosecutors, among others), agencification, regulation and the role of regulatory agencies, consolidation of the center of government or bureaucratic representativeness. Papers that seek to diagnose how bureaucratic agents respond to sometimes conflicting social and political pressures are particularly welcome, such as the interaction of bureaucratic dynamics with the fight against corruption, with populism, or with the tendency to strengthen external and internal controls. How do these pressures affect bureaucratic reputation and your ability to implement public policies? Studies are invited that analyze conceptually and empirically the collective actors that implement public policies, from the high echelon, the middle echelon to the street bureaucracy, observing their performance, behavior and interactions with other actors. The theme also encourages research carried out in the Latin American context or other contexts that may serve as a basis for consolidating research compared with Brazil. And we encourage research about state capabilities and policy instruments.

Recently in Brazil, the Federal Government send to National Congress a proposal (Constitutional Amendment 32/2020) that seek to change the rules about civil servants and administrative organization. This proposal brought, again, for Brazilian public debate the Theme State Reform and Administrative Reform. In this way, is important to remember that in 1936, Getulio Vargas was the President that begun this process and that at this moment the discussion gains density, intensity and different point of views according to the content of the proposals.
A long process of PEC 32/2020 is expected in the National Congress, which will not end with the enactment of the Amendment if approved. Many measures depend on complementary laws and ordinary laws that will be approved by the National Congress and by the sub-national level. Until then, the debate will gain the attention of the academy, the sectors of civil society, and the Media. In a preliminary assessment, the criticisms are directed at the lack of clear objectives to reduce public spending; the lack of a consistent diagnosis, which provides precise figures about personnel expenses; the total absence of a solid conceptual base that guides the formulation of principles and guidelines; due to the fragility of the arguments related to changes in the legal regime of public servants. In this case, many situations of legal uncertainty may be created.
These criticisms show important discussions about the democratic state, the scope, and limits of state intervention, the principles of good public administration, and point us to some of the constant problems of public management. Issues such as the fiscal crisis and the supposed exhaustion of the Welfare model are highlighted in this debate. These questions lead us to think about the provision of basic social services, the income of individuals, and the quality of life of the Brazilian population. They also are relating to the formulation of public policies, the state capacities to implement them, institutional arrangements for intergovernmental relations and partnerships with society and the market, and, finally, the public investment and social services.
Studies on administrative reforms in general, in a broad sense, and particularly on the current government's initiatives embodied in Constitutional Amendment no. 32/2020 are welcome. It is a question of discussing the content of the reform project and, from a comparative perspective, the insertion of government proposals in the international context and historical perspective. It is important to focus on discussion and analysis on the Role of the State; the History of administrative reforms since the beginning of the twentieth century; Liberal and bureaucratizing tendencies in Brazilian and other countries. Administrative reforms; Models of Public Administration; New Public Administration; New tendencies in Public Administration; Political change, institutional change, and administrative reform. Digital transformation and its impacts on public services.

This theme aims to stimulate studies on innovation in the public sector, an area of research of public administration still embryonic, but promising. The purpose is to advance innovation in management, policy, and public services in different government levels and subjects with a focus on the formulation and implementation processes, generation of public value, results, and impacts, as well as challenges and learning.

We encourage studies that analyze and/or question: the innovation cycle – problem identification, generation of ideas, prototyping, implementation, and dissemination; the tools and techniques used in the innovation process, among which stand out design thinking, agile methods, and design sprint, innovation management in public organizations, and the role of policy entrepreneurs. Analyses of different innovation strategies that include co-creation and social participation, experimentalism in management, digital democracy, behavioral economics applied to public policies, open innovation (public challenges, hackathons, crowdsourcing, etc.), gamification, as well as the roles of innovation laboratories.

This theme also values empirical approaches on the role of innovation in: i) processes of improvement of the results delivered to society by public organizations, in terms of efficiency, quality, learning, transparency, among others and; ii) in understanding and efforts to solve complex and uncertain problems (wicked problems), such as inequality, climate change, sustainable development, aging of the population and, more recently, the pandemic of Covid-19 with its multidimensional implications.

We encourage a broad understanding of the idea of innovation, and therefore it is not necessary to focus only on technological innovation, but also on services, processes, change management, or organizational development. When there is a focus on technology, especially on frontier issues such as the internet of things (IoT), blockchain, use and development of algorithms, and Artificial Intelligence (AI), it is suggested a broad and critical appreciation, which discusses problems, difficulties and consequences of the adoption of such tools, in addition to potentials or advantages. Finally, discussions on hiring, evaluating, or supervising innovation by the government are also welcome.

We reinforce the importance that submitted articles dialogue with some of the theoretical perspectives of innovation in the public sector – the cycle of innovation, diffusion, barriers and incentives, co-creation, experimentalism, stakeholder theory, degree of innovation, etc. – in order to contribute to the construction of a shared analytical framework for scientific research of government experiences. The lens of innovation can even be associated with other theories – the cycle of public policies, governance, democracy, and social participation, intergovernmental relations, state capacity, entrepreneurship, etc. – in order to develop a more sophisticated and complementary analysis matrix.

The challenges of regional development are relevant to the academy due to their effects on local social well-being, and also because regional development is the driving force behind the promotion of social, economic and local development. However, regional development effectively occurs when there is an exchange of social capital between agents and local organizations. The existence of social capital (trust, commitment, local identity, shared culture, collaboration, etc.) stimulates and strengthens the relationship between them. Such social capital creates local specialities and differential knowledge, based on the specific way of working locally, which overlaps the individual performance of each organization. Therefore, it is up to the public authorities, especially policymakers, to stimulate local agents not only with institutional support but also promoting relationships and exchanges between them. From these exchanges, local potentials with a social base are created, capable of increasing the legitimation of local knowledge through the creation of regional brands, geographical indications and clusters with a more remarkable power of joint competitiveness. Besides, exchanges between agents and local organizations allow the creation of an ecosystem that stimulates the development of specialized local industries, and, consequently, stimulates local entrepreneurship through spill-over and spin-off movements.

Therefore, starting from the locality's associated thinking, regional development and social capital, it is expected to generate intriguing and essential discussions about how the locality can develop and catalyze its growth. In addition to seeking to deepen discussions of a social nature for regional development, we hope to understand how intermediary agents, such as policymakers, can bring influential contributions to exchanges between local agents and stimulate regional development.

Theories of Social Capital, Social Exchanges, Social Criticism, Strategic Relationship, Institutional, Social Structuring, Social Control (or Social Ties), Social Learning, Social Penetration, Social Embeddedness, Social Identity, Socio-materialism, Social Networks, Culture Local, Regional Development, and other approaches capable of capturing the social effects of exchanges between agents on regional development are welcome.

Studies with interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary approaches are welcome to understand empirical phenomena. For theoretical essays, it is expected efforts under critical and analytical focus. Teaching cases from all relevant sectors are possible to be addressed.

The School of Administration of the Federal University of Bahia (EAUFBA) is a pioneer in the discussion of political administration in the country. This history comes from the contributions of João Ubaldo Ribeiro, when he held the chair of the Political Science discipline at EAUFBA, in the seminal work Political and Administration (1969), (re) published in 2006 by the journal Organizações & Sociedade. The discussion gains consistency with the thesis defended by Reginaldo Souza Santos at the Institute of Economics of UNICAMP (1991) and with the article Administração Pública Brasileira (1993), published in Revista de Administração Pública. However, it is in the early 2000s that the definition of political administration, as a field of knowledge, stands out in Brazilian literature. Political Administration, as a subfield of Administration, has the scientific and professional purpose, to contribute so that political and professional administrators can be trained to observe, describe, explain, evidence, criticize, standardize and propose administrative and organizational solutions (in the field management and management) that effectively contribute to articulating the two inseparable dimensions that involve 'administrative and organizational acts and facts' and / or 'administrative and organizational practices and knowledge', through the integration between 'Thinking' and Acir '; between the political dimension of management and the technical-operational dimension of management. The proposed theme aims to open space for the presentation and discussion of studies aimed at the analysis of the management models of the development of diverse theoretical currents such as structuralism, post-structuralism, multiculturalism and post-colonialism (Cepaline Development, Neoliberalism, New -Developmentalism, Post-Developmentalism, etc.), in order to highlight the implications of models in the daily lives of individuals, organizations and society; as well as studies aimed at analyzing and / or evaluating the effects of the Brazilian Political Administration on the distribution of wealth and social income.

Since the advent of New Public Management (NPM), research and discussion of how changes in institutions, processes, systems, policies and organizations have yielded useful insights into ways to improve governance (Rodhes, 1996; Lynn et al, 2000; Almqvist et al, 2013; Fukuyama, 2013; Capano, 2014; Frederickson et al 2015; Grindle, 2017; Tonelli et al, 2017). From a local perspective, a challenge is presented about who governs governance and how responsibilities can be attributed between the actors involved and significant accountability issues (Casula, 2017), revealing the importance of accountability in this process as well. In the view of Lynn Jr, Heinrich and Hill (2000), among the questions that motivate the systematic study of public governance in the public field are: (i) How can more administrative entities be best executed? ”(Ii) How Can public sector schemes, agencies, programs and activities be organized and managed to achieve public objectives? (iii) How can the Government continually improve performance in order to earn the respect of paying citizens whose lives are affected by its regulatory programs and activities? Challenges like these are daily faced by Brazilian public managers, especially when it comes to managers of subnational entities (Silva Corralo, 2015). With the promulgation of the Federal Constitution of 1988, Brazilian Municipalities had their autonomy and protagonism recognized, but despite this institutional advance, the decentralization of power to the municipal sphere did not previously consider the inequalities of the Brazilian territory and created different “Brazils”. This diversity eventually limited and compromised the conditions for the exercise of municipal competences shared with other spheres and deepened the local and regional disparities of the country. In practice, it is observed that in most of the Brazilian territory the increase of the responsibility attributed to the Municipalities by the 1988 Constitution was not accompanied by an adequate administrative-financial structure to manage and monitor the new actions to be implemented, and thus Achieving the expected goals has thus become a challenge for municipal managers. In addition to the scarcity of funding sources and the increasing demand for resources to meet social policies such as health, education and social assistance, which weakens the municipal economy, the inability of administrative systems to act effectively and decisively to solve public problems. makes the municipalities unable to reach the necessary conditions to develop. It is in this environment that arises the discussion of public policies of governance and accountability, materialized in the form of mechanisms of leadership, resilience, strategy and control to evaluate, direct and monitor municipal public management, with a view to conducting public policies and providing services of interest to society. The thematic section invites contributions that explore different aspects of governance and accountability from the perspective of local governments. All theoretical and methodological approaches are welcome.

This research stream focuses on the interdisciplinary nature of management accounting and it focuses on the relationship between management accounting and human behavior, organizational and institutional structures and processes, and the broader socio-political environment of the company. This stream of research aims to challenge and extend our understanding of management accounting roles and related emerging and technical practices in the construction of economic and social actors, and their modes of economic organization, including ways in which such practices influence and are influenced by market development and others institutions. This research stream seeks to expand the view that organizational actors are always rational who make efficient decisions. The rational explanation is the dominant perspective in the management accounting literature, and it has the assumption that the adoption / use of a practice will always bring economic benefits for the organization. However, an alternative stream of research has shown that this rational perspective has failed to explain how cultural and social aspects influence the adoption and use of a management practice. Thus, this alternative stream of research has highlighted the importance of studying phenomena in the area of management accounting in a more comprehensive way involving aspects related to social, cultural and political pressures in the process of adoption and use of management accounting practices. Thus, in this theme, studies are sought that are based on diverse methodologies and theoretical developments from all social sciences, and that illuminate the development, processes and effects of management accounting in its organizational, political, historical and social contexts. This stream of research covers, but is not limited to, the following topics: the roles of management accounting in organizations and society; the contribution of management accounting practices to the emergence, maintenance and transformation of organizational and social institutions; the roles of management accounting in the development of new organizational and institutional forms, both public and private; the relationships between management accounting, accountability, ethics and social justice; behavioral studies of management accounting practices and of the providers, verifiers and users of accounting information, including cognitive aspects of the measurement, judgment and decision-making processes; the behavioral aspects of the planning, control and evaluation processes; studies of organizational processes for the design, implementation and use of management control systems; social, organizational, political and psychological studies of the process of setting standards and practices in the area of management accounting.

There are several points of intersection between Innovation Management and Management Accounting, especially with regard to the contribution of both in the survival and adaptability of the business with a view to development.

Information from management accounting can be used as a catalyst for innovation, providing different types of innovation (products, services, processes, marketing and organizational) and in different perspectives (incremental, radical or disruptive), however, the unbalanced use of some artifacts can inhibit creativity, organizational learning and, consequently, innovation.

In view of this, seeking to expand knowledge about these theoretical relationships and practical impacts, not forgetting their possible antecedents, consequences, moderators and mediators, as well as the institutional characteristics, the meanings and meanings attributed to the artifacts, this theme proposes to investigate:

a) the organizational changes caused by the implementation of a new management accounting practice;
b) how the implementation of a new managerial artifact impacts the firm's innovative capacity;
c) categorize which are the artifacts of management accounting that promote or inhibit intra and interorganizational innovation;
d) how and how much the use or design of management control systems contributes to the balance of radical and incremental innovation actions in ambidextrous organizations;
e) the impact of the use of management accounting artifacts and innovation management on the performance and survival of organizations.

This theme also welcomes research on the accounting practices (regulatory or management) applied to companies that adopt new business models, especially technology-based companies (EBT), such as Startups and Fintech.

Accounting has one of its main objectives to provide useful information about the entities to its various users since a part is directed to the external public. As business activities' size and complexity grow, the information needs of managers and other users of Accounting become increasingly different. The latter needs an increasing demand for accounting information so that they can judge the manager and the company's performance and monitor the preparation and execution of the contracts.
The concept of accounting information quality becomes complex and depends on the purpose of its user. Therefore, it has become one of the main discussion topics in the academic and professional environment. The concept of what would be 'quality of accounting information' is related to its users' consensus, observing the market institutional and organizational characteristics, taking into account the economic, social, cultural, and even temporal aspects. In addition, the quality of accounting information is linked to behavioral, economic, institutional and cultural theories, among other internal and external factors. The topic of Accounting Information Quality covers several issues, such as (but not limited to):
a. persistence,
b. conservatism,
c. earnings management accounting,
d. value relevance,
e. transparency, and disclosure,
f. analytical and empirical models of accounting information quality,
g. determining factors and consequences of accounting information.

Sports entities, formerly analyzed only as a socio-cultural phenomenon, are currently also studied from an economic-financial perspective (Zambom-Ferraresi, García-Cebrián, Lera-López, & Iráizoz, 2017). Consequently, the use of financial statements becomes an object of analysis both in academia and in the market. Studies about it are justified due to the importance to various stakeholders, such as managers, creditors, investors, government, and fans.
The related literature points out a critical distinctiveness when evaluating the performance of these organizations. It is necessary to examine from two perspectives: results in the game field and economic success (Guzmán, 2006). Therefore, the objectives are oriented towards achieving profit maximization and sporting success (Sloane, 2015; Terrien, Scelles, Morrow, Maltese, & Durand, 2017).
Szymanski (2017) argues that sports performance is measured weekly, and financial resources management is carried out at their level. The achievement of victories and, consequently, titles tend to impact financial results positively.
On the other hand, consecutive defeats can ultimately lead to club bankruptcy (Alaminos & Fernandez, 2019; Scelles, Morrow, Maltese, & Durand, 2017). Under another aspect of club management, there is still a typical scenario: poor management, financial crises, and corruption scandals. These are determined to a certain extent based on the low level of transparency of information about the teams' management and their consequent evaluation. In this sense, Governance and its acceptable practices can help minimize this scenario and contribute to professionalizing management and the teams' financial and administrative reorganization (Marques & Costa, 2016; Ruta, Lorenzon, & Sironi, 2019).
Thus, the areas of interest in this topic cover, but are not limited to, the following subjects:

1. Finance in sports entities;
2. Governance in sports entities;
3. Transparency in sports entities;
4. Management in sports entities;
5. The relationship between financial and sporting performance in sporting entities

It focuses on the use of accounting information to assist decision-making, inherent to the planning, execution, evaluation and control processes of public and private entities. The decision-making process are solutions to problems, decision between alternatives for actions, new investments, strategies among other decisions about the company. Approaches such as activity-based costing, the balanced scorecard, target costing and kaizen costing are some of the many examples of techniques that proliferate in international Management Accounting manuals (Major, 2011). To Atkinson et al. (2011), management accounting information can assist decision makers since they are able to measure the economic performance of operating units. Another factor is that such information can be used as a tool in which workers can get feedback on their performance in the organization, a fact that generates learning based on a past experience to improve the future. It involves the measurement and evaluation of performance; strategic cost management; risk assessment, incentive plans; rewards, interorganizational accounting and applied to the value chain; controllership and decision support systems; accounting applied to valuation, management of intangible assets and intellectual capital; information technology and communication applied to management control and other interdisciplinary issues of management accounting. Strategic, managerial and operational controllership. Indicators for measuring results. Financial and non-financial indicators.

Corporate Governance, for Siffert (1998) came to have relevance with the emergence of modern corporations, such organizations have the segregation between ownership and control as the main characteristic. Among the internal mechanisms stands out, for example, the action of the Board of Directors, since as an external mechanism, the mandatory publication of information about the company is highlighted (SILVEIRA, 2002). Studies related to governance and auditing in organizations, such as risk mitigation mechanism from a financial accounting perspective, include topics such as: audit (internal and/or external), compliance, supervisory board, board of directors, audit committee and internal control from the perspective of financial accounting. Studies related to internal control, such as deficiencies, economic factors that expose to control failures Studies related to investigation in cases of fraud and corruption. Includes, but is not limited to: accounting fraud and tax matters; fraudulent financial reports; corruption and accounting; accounting and tax expertise and its applications in litigation support; accounting research techniques; psychology and criminology of fraud; intelligent and/or artificial intelligence systems, data analytics, red flags, among others for fraud investigation and prevention.

The concept of sustainable development results from a relatively long historical process of critical reassessment of the relationship between civil society and its natural environment. Because it is a continuous and complex process, today there are several approaches that seek to explain the concept of sustainability. This variety can be verified by the numerous definitions related to this concept (Van Bellen, 2004). Studies addressing the applications of accounting for sustainability and third sector. Includes, but is not limited to: Ethics and Social Responsibility. Recognition and Measurement of social, environmental and cultural actions. Evidence (environmental report, integrated report and socio-environmental report). Public Policies (green taxation, regulatory instruments, certifications, internalization of carbon pricing).

Critical and Interpretive Accounting Studies stream aims to cast a critical eye over accounting in its broadest social and political context, embracing historical perspectives as well as forward-looking, utopian visions of accounting, focusing especially on Brazil and Latin-America. Not only history and sociopolitical context, but also culture and power in/around organizations have been underexplored in the accounting literature although even a reasonable rationale acknowledges that they should be influential factors in molding and building the accounting phenomena (Hines, 1988).
Critical viewpoints in international accounting literature are rather plural and diverse. They seek to challenge the conventional wisdom on financial and non-financial practices and create spaces for alternative voices and contributions to public policies. Therefore, the stream proposes to embrace researchers that perceive accounting as a mechanism, a discourse, a structure or a practice that contributes to the advancement of contemporary neoliberalism and sustains new forms of dominance or neocolonial invisible violence in countries in the margins.
Interdisciplinarity is a fundamental aspect to make transparent the role that accounting plays in reducing social welfare and deepening social inequalities. Hence, it is necessary to deal with alternative ways in which accounting, and accountability can potentially lead to enhanced societal welfare while challenging Western traditional economic and developmental models.
Therefore, the proposed theme (CRIAS) invites researchers to submit historical and contemporary critical studies that are related to managerial accounting, auditing, financial markets and accounting frameworks, regulations, governance and public accountability. In particular, CRIAS provides an interface between developments in critical and interpretive management studies, possibilities for new practices, knowledge and forms of accountability. Contributions are welcomed from a variety of theoretical, methodological and philosophical traditions related to critical and interpretive paradigms, based on qualitative approaches to research. Scholars, students and early-career researchers are most welcomed as presenters and participants.
Relevant contributions would include (indicative topics):
1. Emancipatory, utopian and visionary forms of accounting;
2. Accounting and accountability practices related to the arms race, immigration, human rights, and ethnicity;
3. Gender, transgender and feminism in accounting;
4. Challenges to open government initiatives, information access and transparency through counter accounting;
5. Limits of public-sector accounting and public-private relations in neoliberal times;
6. Financial crime, corruption, whistleblowing, and tax avoidance;
7. Challenges to accounting regulation and standardization;
8. Management accounting culture, control, power, or subjugation of labor and work;
9. Accountants as professional experts in the context of financial capitalism;
10. Critical accounting education in an era of entrepreneurial universities and academic performers;
11. Critical environmental, ecological and natural capital accounting issues;
12. Postcolonial perspectives and subaltern voices in accounting;
13. Critical and interpretive histories for understanding the role of accounting and the accounting professional.

Cities have increasingly become of interest to Organization Studies, building on the solid academic output on the urban space already present in the fields of Architecture and Urbanism, Geography, Urban Sociology, Urban Anthropology and more recently, in Public Administration. In the latter, there are great concerns about city management in terms of governance, regulations, participation, organization of collective spaces, etc. However, as a confluence of physical spatial structures, rules and rights, actors, networks and knowledge, cultures and differences, design and technologies, the city has become an increasingly important agenda for researchers in several areas of knowledge, including Organization Studies. Within the scope of this proposal and continuing the successful of the previous topic of interest, we highlight three aspects related to the relationship between City and Organization Studies: the historical perspective, which gives the city a specific reference point located in time and in the construction of urban spaces of history and memory; the creative and economic perspective, in which management is highlighted as a central aspect; and the margin perspective that houses multiple beams associated to knowledges and existence peripherally produced, and “on the margins” of what is regarded as hegemonic and therefore visible.

We invite researchers to present papers for this thematic grouping of topics based on several epistemological and methodological positions that have as axes Cities and Organization Studies, especially regarding the interfaces between History, Management and Margins. The works may be guided, but not limited to, by the following topics and themes:

• Cities, History, Memory and Urban Patrimony.
? The City and its interfaces with Management and the Creative Economy.
? Social Urban Dynamics: Experiences, Sociability, Rights, Mobility and Territorialities.
? Urban Spatial Practices: Actors, Bodies, Culture, Aesthetics and Organization.
? Margins and Peripheries in the City: Bodies, Existence, Resistances, Knowledge, Cultures and Non-Hegemonic Dynamics.
? Facets of the Urban from the Organizational Viewpoint: Global Cities, Dead Cities, Dormitory Cities, Threat Cities, Garden Cities, Tired Cities.

Since its inception, universities have been subjected to processes of transformation and movements that put their reasons for being in check. Efforts to justify its relevance have required a capacity for reconfiguration, preserving original responsibilities and suggesting new challenges. However, the university's historiography allows us to affirm that its transformations were never able to fully satisfy social expectations. In view of the centrality of an institution whose commitments go beyond the fields of teaching, research and extension, it is intended to encourage debate about the university. In this sense, some questions, from the most comprehensive to the most contextualized, are opportune:
Why and how to preserve higher education as a universal human right, recognized as a social necessity and duty of States?
What to understand by university autonomy and academic freedom?
What are the ethical and political limits of the university as we know it?
What elements define an institution with such a wide range of outlines and meanings?
Is contemporary university management compatible with the changes experienced by society?
How to protect the university from commercialism, corporatism and denialism?
During and after the pandemic, what were and what could be the university's contributions to the new normal?
What is the relationship between the hegemonic model of internationalization and the unequal geopolitics of knowledge?
What are the consequences of the intensification of competition between universities, whether due to recognition in exogenous rankings, professors and productive / promising students or sources of funding?
In the face of budgetary constraints, how can standards of excellence be achieved in terms of knowledge production and dissemination?
What are the university's responsibilities regarding the process of social inclusion and the reduction of inequalities?
What are the university's dysfunctionalities and areas of obsolescence when considering the purposes and destinations of knowledge; interdisciplinarity; the relationship between education and citizen training and the democratization of access (allied to the challenges of permanence students)?
What roles can Technical-Administrative Servants in Education play in university management and core activities, notably in research and extension?
What is possible to learn from university architectures and new institutional arrangements created from the Program for Restructuring and Expansion of Brazilian Federal Universities (REUNI)?
After all, keeping in mind the international context, but problematizing national dilemmas, conditions and urgencies, which university do we want and for whom?
The focus of this theme is, therefore, on productions that consider the university as an institution in constant transformation. The texts are expected to favor the understanding of deliberate and / or emerging paths for the network of higher education institutions in times of growing demands, scarcity of means and uncertainties - enhanced by new social relations, production and communication technologies and post-pandemic health restrictions. In this sense, priority is given to studies on the public sphere of education, translated into bold and socially relevant university projects, supported by critical and propositional theoretical-methodological approaches, focused on the teaching, research and extension triad, but also on university management.

The present work group aims to promote, visualize and articulate researches on organizational practices that break, destabilize or open gaps and fissures to the neoliberal work logic, especially those referring to the universe of what is said "popular": business, commerce, arts, parties, informal economies, people`s invisible things that somehow resist the globalized world system.
We propose to encourage reflection on the processes of production and organization of different spaces, knowledge and powers: the house, the street, the city, groups, popular organizations. The gaze turns to the other ways of existing and organizing that are often ignored or actively invisible within a mainstream of management and that constitute multiple possibilities of breaking with totalizing thoughts and practices in the area.
At a time when devices and machinery of power seek to control and give life a unique shape amid global capitalism the resistance intensifies precisely on the forms of life, survival and creation of other ways of being and organizing that escape, slip and invert the rules of the game (FOUCAULT, 2017, LAZZARATO, 2014). In this scenario, as indicated by Pelbart (2000, 2003, 2016), mapping other modes of existence becomes a relevant project, emphasizing multiplicities that do not allow to be encompassed by the totalizing machinery of power. In Organizational Studies, other ways of organizing that constantly survive and recreate themselves in everyday life form a reservoir of lesser knowledges and potentialities for overcoming the status quo.
In this way, we propose to contribute to a possible "fenomenologia da dispersão anárquica do poder" (FOUCAULT, 1998, p.48). By means of smaller, local, every day, popular, even if specific and singular, sometimes also temporary management experiences, we intend to find, map and share clues, detours, escape routes and expand the possibilities of doing, knowing and power of our space and organizational time, to amplify the power of contestation and creation (BENJAMIN, 1984), which inaugurates the new in the face of the logic and devices of power inherent to individualizing neoliberalism.

The national academic environment has already assimilated the need for reflection on the production of scientific knowledge about organizations and administrative practice. Epistemology is inserted as a specific discipline, or as a particular topic of discussion in most curricula of the Graduate Programs in Administration. Epistemology is also a central theme of scientific events, as in the case of the International Colloquium on Epistemology and Sociology of Science in Administration, and several times it has already received editions entirely dedicated to its discussion from periodicals in the area. Within the scope of ANPAD, the Theme was created in 2009, in the Division of Teaching and Research in Administration and Accounting (EPQ), and, in 2010, in the Division of Organizational Studies (EOR). As a methodical and reflective study of knowledge, of its organization, of its formation, of its development, of its functioning and of its products, epistemology occupies an extremely important place for the critical examination of our own production of sciences and knowledge, helping us, thus, in making critical awareness of our daily practice.

For the EOR Division, the proposal is that the theme is dedicated to epistemology in organizational studies and seeks to focus the reflection on the production of knowledge and scientific knowledge of organizational and administrative phenomena, as well as to discuss the social conditions of production of this knowledge, always with in order to promote dialogues between epistemologies and disciplines. With these objectives, the theme contemplates the diverse epistemic approaches (positivism, functionalism, structuralism, institutionalism, interpretativism, critical theory, marxism, pragmatism, post-structuralism, critical realism, post-criticism, among others), from contributions of disciplines such as administration, sociology, anthropology, philosophy, history, semiotics and psychoanalysis. Ontology and methodology can be approached, but from the articulation of these with the epistemologies, building principles, arguments, hypotheses, procedures, results, interpretations and practices to critically analyze the different epistemological approaches or currents. In addition, the social and organizational conditions of scientific production - the so-called scientific field - can also be discussed in an articulated way to epistemology, because in addition to the epistemological development having a strong influence of these conditions, the Graduate Programs train professors and researchers to act in a field that needs to be discussed scientifically at ENANPAD for its own evolution.

Our proposal intends to contribute to the scientific community of researchers on the theme of Learning and Knowledge, especially those that refers to organizations. We are interested in understanding the processes of learning processes through the transdisciplinary dialogue of areas of knowledge such as Sociology, Anthropology, Psychology and Education. This intersection broadens the understanding of learning in organizations, their actors, methodological movements, political dimension, as well as knowledge that is constituted by and in organizational processes.
The widening of the locus of learning in other socially organized spaces is needed, proving to be essential to know and recognize actors who interact with and in these organizations. It is intended to reflect on the knowledge in different contexts of exclusion and socioeconomic inequalities.
The expansion proposed here, considering the nature of organizations as organizational processes is to go beyond the hegemonic understanding that productive organization is the only space of learning occurrence, because we consider the social movements; popular, social, public, and non-governmental organizations; the collectives; the physical and virtual networks, among others, also as place of expression of learning. Of the nature of the actors, those of different territorial belongings, those of different urbanities and ruralities, those of different ethnic-racial flags, gender and sexual diversity, religious, cultural and language belonging, are ways of considering the political gap of learning studies in organizations.
The proposal seeks to give visibility, criticism and spaces of manifestation to the collective actors that are usually invisible. This also implies discussing methodological alternatives to develop such studies.
Topics we would like to discuss (but not limited to):
• How knowledge is constituted by and within the organizational processes?
• What is the implication of understanding the political dimension of practices for the construction of knowledge?
• How new organizational forms and employment arrangements (temporary and contingent work, intermediaries, network-based enterprises, etc.) influence the distribution of power and inequalities in the workplace and labour markets?
• How are established the (changeable) relations between social participation and segregation? And how does this impact on the work, professions and learning dimension?
• How the knowledges of science, politics, natural history and native peoples help us to think and create collective modes of resistance?
• How do emerging information and technologies (online platforms, algorithms, machine learning, predictive analytics, etc.) shape screening, hiring, task allocation, and consequently workplace learning?
• How the emergent of new technologies redefine the nature of work by creating new identities, professions, and communities? And in this context, what and how are generated new discourses that limit the professions, work and the constitution of knowledge?
• What are the (unintended) consequences of old and new organizational practices and routines, particularly why they benefit some individuals or groups while restricting opportunities for others inside and outside of work organizations?
• Where are social research methods being invented? What are possible alternative spaces to hegemonic knowledge systems of knowledge?
• What is the critical and transformative potential of research methods on learning and knowledge?
• What knowledge and practices involve the constitution of the subject that reflects, transforms and codifies scientific and research work?

The political-social role played by companies has gained the attention of authors in organizational studies with the themes of entrepreneurship (Battilana, Leca, & Boxenbaum, 2009), leadership (Yuan & Woodman, 2010) and human rights (Barros, 2018). Some studies have already studied corruption and the direct relationship with the private sector (Collins, Uhlenbruck, & Rodriguez, 2009; Chowdhury, Audretsch, & Belitski, 2015). This is due to recent corruption scandals (Coelho & Barros, 2020), as well as crimes and environmental disasters (Pereira, Barros & Rezende, 2020). Thus, it is important to better understand the role played by organizations and their respective accountability. Recent research has explored the need and failure of corporate governance policies, integrity/compliance programs (Aldeguer et al. 2020; Couto & Carrieri, 2020; Zattoni & Cuomo, 2008) and corporate social responsibility (Bansal, & Song, 2017).
Many organizations use the importance given to their social function to create codes of ethics, voluntary and “humanitarian” actions, as well as marketing campaigns that improve their image (Zattoni & Cuomo, 2008). These macroprocesses are influenced by the institutional environment and by phenomena such as isomorphism (DiMaggio & Powell, 1983), but they also function as a bargaining chip for the generation of legitimacy (Suchman, 1995).
This positive trend is obscured by the evidence that shows the formation of "a facade of responsibility" (Meyer & Rowan, 1977, Zylbersztajn, 2002). At the same time that they disclose their social actions, organizations are concealing irresponsible and even illegal actions such as corruption, corporate crimes, environmental crimes and discrimination by gender, race and age, among other unethical behaviors (Costa & Borin, 2018).
In a broad way, this theme seeks to analyze: a) how do companies act politically? b) how is corporate and CEO activism exercised and what are its social impacts? c) what are your unethical behaviors? d) What about the instruments to fight them?
Researches with perspectives and analyzes at an organizational, individual and / or structural level with all the different ontological, epistemological, methodological and theoretical approaches that discuss the social and political function of organizations are welcome. Papers may include, but are not limited to, the following topics:
-The role of organizations in promoting human rights or violating it;
-Political activism and non-market strategies (electoral-party relations);
-Political activism with society (discursive constructions of the corporate image and dissemination of discourses of diversity);
-Business transparency before society in cases of scandals;
-CSR as a neoliberal discourse and other critical perspectives;
-Theoretical, epistemological and methodological alternative approaches to analyze the political and social function of organizations;
-Involvement of organizations in historical changes and political moments;
-Organizations facing sustainability, the environment and society;
-Reflections on corporate irresponsibility events;
-Encouraging critical thinking about CSR actions
-Social business and alternative organizational forms;
-Corruption, corporate crimes and unethical activities;
-Institutional arrangements and public-private policies to combat unethical conduct.

Technological innovations, as tools of neoliberalism, have produced a new economic and social order based on veiled practices of data extraction, prediction and sales.
This exploitation of data allows the maximization of organizations' profits and enhances the expropriation of rights and the capture of human experiences, consolidating itself as a new form of power and colonialism - data colonialism. These new technologies, called intelligent, are based on a discourse of technological solutions, indispensable for the growth and productivity of organizations. In this context, some research has pointed to a culture of surveillance that produces a society and a sentinel state. There is a strong demand for the prediction of the subjects' behaviors, and the installation of a persuasive paradigm, based on the induction of behaviors and decisions, not always conscious. This technological rationality is reproduced in different instances of social life. In the scope of labor relations, while discussing the prospects of replacing the workforce with machines, it is not possible to disregard the profound reconfiguration of labor relations based on digitalization. Algorithmic management has allowed physical dispersion and disarticulation of workers, as well as detailed control of each individual's actions. In parallel, technologies, especially digital, are not simple functional devices. They are built on human beliefs and logic and have no axiological neutrality, in essence they have organizational interests constituted in the form of digital tools. As a result, the use of these tools has had the side effect of accentuating the (re) production of inequality, exclusion and social discrimination. To problematize the ethics of digital technologies, revealing their predispositions to (re) produce privileges and their commitments to maintain hegemonic status, becomes a necessary agenda that contributes to the discussion of discrimination by gender, race, among other important issues denounced in social relations. In this sense, it is essential to open spaces for the perspectives of power and technological resistance, analyzing: i. the asymmetries of power relations between users of digital platforms and the organizations that operate them; ii. the role of the State in mediating and controlling these relationships; iii. the growing organizational phenomena based on the actions of techno-activists; and iv. new ethical perspectives based on the subjects' creativity, such as hackers, who seek to subvert this new form of socio-digital domination, through their own networks and social media. The call aims to bring together plural approaches and methods, and aims to instigate the development of research on the digitized world and organizational studies. For this, six main themes are proposed:
1) Surveillance capitalism, data colonialism and algorithmic mediation;
2) Digitized work, surveillance culture and algorithm management;
3) Digitization as a tool for inequality, exclusion and discrimination (social, racial, gender positions, among others);
4) Power and techno resistance;
5) The articulations of the discourse of digital technology;
6) The relationship between digitization and atypical contexts, such as the consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic, and its repercussions on and by digital technologies.

The Anthropocene is as a new geological epoch marked by the impacts that we humans have on the so-called Earth-System, exploring natural limits and shaping the planet's surface in a way comparable to the land-based forces themselves (STEFFEN ET AL, 2015). Thus, this theme aims to bring together and foster debates that call into question scientific thinking in Management and Organizational Studies about organized relationships among the different actors and subjects of the Anthropocene (whether they are human and / or non-human) as well as the interactions and conflicts that arise from these relationships.
On the one hand, we want to invite the academic community to the challenge of thinking about the limits and weaknesses of the modes of capitalist development that, through destructive organizational practices (ERGENE, BANERJEE AND HOFFMAN, 2020; BANERJEE, 2008), have been producing interactions with other ways of being in the world, which result in sanitary, economic and socio-environmental crises and catastrophes. We also want to reunite discussions about inequalities produced by the political economy that sustains the Anthropocene and produces the growing conflicts over the appropriation of nature. Such conflicts involve a multiplicity of actors, their political agendas and different organizational forms arranged in territories marked by struggles, vulnerabilities and extractive, industrial, rural exploitation, among others. In this way, we seek works in Organizational Studies that contemplate the different social groups impacted by such processes.
On the other hand, when we understand the field based on troubles, concerns and criticisms based on the so-called “human exceptionalism”, marked by anthropocentric and speciesist perspectives that characterize Western thought and hegemonic scientific approaches, we invite those interested to exercise critical reflections on possible alternatives for thinking about the very coexistence of humans and non-humans in the Anthropocene / Capitalocene, based on a concern with the biosocial dimension of organizing (LABATUT; MUNRO; DESMOND, 2016), making room for multispecies perspectives in Organizational Studies (FANTINEL, 2020). We try to open space for reflections that put organizing in perspective based on more than human policies (BEACHAM, 2018). We understand that the Anthropocene highlights the crisis of modern paradigms and that it can provide the articulation of new lenses to think about living well and living with others, in an integrative perspective of the beings of nature against the effects of capitalism (ERGENE; CALÁS; SMIRCICH, 2018). The scope of this perspective makes it possible to question the limits of traditional dualistic ontologies that mark the production of knowledge. In addition, the Anthropocene brings the need to revise northern epistemologies and openness to decoloniality (DAVIS; TODD, 2017; QUIJANO, 2011).

This theme aims to address social inequalities produced at work and in organizations, considering especially race, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, class, and territory. We welcome studies developed from an intersectional approach. This approach accounts for how differences turn into social inequalities and how they articulate in organizations, leading to particular mechanisms of privilege. These issues have gained academic and political prominence due to the growing concern about creating democratic and inclusive workplaces, management practices, and organizations. Therefore, we invite studies on power relations and dynamics, which stress the political dimension of differences in ideological, historical, social, and cultural terms. We adopt a broad concept of work, including debates on the productive and reproductive work, organizations, management, and public and private administration. Additionally, the notion of organization comprises public and private agents, non-governmental organizations, associations, organizations of social movements, among other organizational dimensions of social life. We also encourage studies on how social inequalities have been constructed and reproduced in the workplace, especially in an articulated manner, focusing both on groups socially privileged (e.g., men and masculinities, white people, socioeconomic elites, privileged immigrants, heterosexuals, non-disabled people, etc.) and historically discriminated (e.g., women, black people, workers, discriminated immigrants, refugees, indigenous, quilombolas, LGBTQI+, disabled people, reflections upon territorial and regional inequalities, etc.). This debate includes analyses of social inequalities in the national and international labor market; the action of the state, social movements, and intergovernmental organizations in denouncing or coping with discrimination and exclusion; and case studies about how organizations face particular experiences of inequality in the workplace, as well as the management practices developed to tackle inequalities. It also includes research on the social, sexual, and racial division of work, considering the relationship between productive and reproductive work. Therefore, themes such as care, professional and nonprofessional care, care of specific groups, and policies to articulate work and family, among others, are stressed. In line with this, we welcome analyses of public policies focusing on discriminated groups and/or to promote social equality. Finally, we encourage discussion on epistemological, theoretical, and methodological perspectives to approach these issues, as well as studies that evidence a new research agenda and explore other axes of oppression not explicitly mentioned in this proposal.

The historical turn in management and organization studies was consolidated from the 2000s (Mills et al., 2016). It created a diverse epistemic community, which was consolidated around discussions about the past and how to write history for the present (Coraiola & Murcia, 2020; Decker et al., 2020). Such a community can already be considered consolidated both in Brazil and abroad (Costa et al., 2010).
This theme encompasses historical research exploring the political, economic, and psychosocial relationships established between subjects, organizations, and societies. We hope to have submissions that contemplate such relationships in any geographic-temporal space from any theoretical and methodological approaches (e.g., Wanderley & Barros, 2019).
As for "organizations", this concept is widely understood. It includes, for example, social movements, everyday life at work, family or educational organizations. In short, the concept goes beyond the firm and should reflect the specificities of each form of organization.
We expect manuscripts using the biographical method or life history in its various historical and psychosocial approaches (Granato et al., 2020). We highlight the relevance of people's experience over time and the understanding of the subjects' representations about history, in a broader way, and in relation to their life history. It is the record of individual and collective memories (Rowlinson et al., 2010), of experiences and trajectories (re)told aiming at transforming, emancipating, or giving visibility to collectivities, subjects, and their experiences.
With regard to the theoretical approach, we expect the rescue of classics of Brazilian social thought (Wanderley, 2016), as well as themes that structure Brazil's social reality (Wanderley & A. Barros, 2019), such as the role of slavery and other characteristics that framed it the country's development (A. Barros & Wanderley, 2020). We are also looking forward to works that focus on concepts dear to history or memory (Granato et al., 2020). Equally for psychosociology theorists, among other aspects, which deal with biographies, history, life history, and experience (V. Barros and Lopes, 2014).
We invite you to submit theoretical and empirical works that focus on the basis of new sources and objects, ontological, epistemological, or methodological contributions from the historical perspective to the area of ??organizational studies.
Studies are welcome that:
- Analyze how sources and historical archives contribute to understanding organizational phenomena and their articulation with the social and political;
- Stimulate debates on historical research in administration and organizational studies;
- Discuss the uses of the past in organizational studies and investigate how organizations instrumentalize their past by creating and managing their collections and documentary archives, producing meanings from disputes between official memories and silenced memories;
- Are based on sources such as public, private, or business archives, advertisements, periodicals, films, documentaries, etc;
- Use the theoretical and methodological approaches of Life History or Oral History, in which the following stand out: the centrality in the subject and in their lived experience, the importance of orality, the valorization of individual and social memory for the understanding of organizations, work, and society;
- Rescue the relations between public education policies, education organizations, and Administration disciplines.

This thematic proposal aims to contribute to Organizational Studies by demystifying the concept of “work" as restricted to the so-called “productive” sphere. Additionally, we point to the potential contribution of the theory on social reproduction to a materialist, feminist, anti-racist, and decolonial understanding of organizational, educational, and social changes taking place in the context of contemporary neoliberalism. By approaching this thematic, we hope to give visibility to the female, undervalued work, in the terms of Jules Falquet, carried out by impoverished, racialized, and proletarianized women who, around the globe, carry out poorly (or unpaid) reproductive work. This, also called "domestic work" is a set of activities of a physical, emotional, and sexual nature through which women guarantee the existence and maintenance of capitalism through social reproduction. Silvia Federici conceives social reproduction in a double sense: as the reproduction of exploited labor, through the birth, sustenance, and education of children who will make up the future proletariat, as well as through the work carried out (mainly) by women at home, ensuring that working-class (especially men) can return to the next day's capitalist exploitation. In this way, social reproduction is the material basis of patriarchy culture. As Heleieth Saffioti explains, patriarchal culture is discarded as the ultimate source of explanation for discrimination against women under capitalism. From the unitary theory perspective, as explained by Cinzia Arruzza, we understand the relations that generate oppression of gender, class, and race as integral elements of capitalist society that, throughout historical processes, dissolved previous forms of social life to meet the needs of the ruling classes in each context. In a period of a global economic crisis in which the neoliberal speculative fury accentuates the ideological dictates of fiscal austerity and budget cuts of public policies essential to social reproduction, there is full compatibility between economic liberalism and moral conservatism. The worldwide advance of discourses against women, the black population, indigenous people, and the LGBTQIA + community serve as an ideological varnish to push more and more racialized and impoverished women into underpaid (or unpaid) domestic work, responding to the concrete importance of reproductive work for owners of the means of production, which stopped being financed collectively via the State by social policies to be assumed in the (supposed) private sphere of the home. The thematical proposal, in this sense, aims to promote and discuss academic papers with themes such as the romanticization of motherhood, reproductive control, domestic work, reproductive control, access and conditions for women to remain in school, reinforcement of gender stereotypes, the genocide of populations indigenous peoples and black youth, advancing colonized liberal practices and discourses, increasing the mass incarceration of racialized and proletarianized people (especially women) around the globe and who therefore constitute criticisms of poverty management instruments used to mask the need in the current neoliberal context to push racialized and proletarianized people (especially women) into compulsory reproductive work and/or imprisonment, to mask the essentially predatory and discriminatory face of the social order.

The world we are used to living in is changing, just as our parameters for what is considered normal. Most of these changes arise from the global perception of the need to face the grand societal challenges that present themselves in this scenario (Ferraro et al., 2015; George et al., 2016). Thus, we experience major challenges, such as the production of vaccines against the Covid19; problems in the organizational networks involved in climate change solution; the regulation of individual information on networks; the criticism of economic models that exclude diversity; the difficulties of Latin American countries in contributing to the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals proposed by the 2030 Agenda of the United Nations.
Organizational practices are understood as the construction, decision and actual actions related to alliances, agreements, conflict resolution, manifestations of power, processes of discussion and negotiation of norms and rules, presence of formal and informal governance; formation of the bond structure, legitimization and institutionalization of the groups' operation mode (Hinings, Logue, & Zietsma, 2017; Ocasio, Thornton, & Lounsbury, 2017). In the same way, it is understood that theories of social construction assume that social actors are those who configure social and organizational reality through their practices and rules. At the same time, this reality constructed through practices and rules guide social actors' actions. These theories understand that the construction process involves different conditions such as collaboration, negotiation between the actors, or even imposition. Eventually, the relationship between the actors can result in conflicts, which may or may not imply changes in practices, rules and organizational configurations (Goodrick & Reay, 2011; Nicolini et al., 2016; Raynard, 2016).
Thus, based on the notion that facing major societal challenges requires major social changes and that they are not possible without the engagement of organizations (Ferraro et al., 2015; George et al., 2016), this theme proposes that such issues shall be discussed from the transition from a functional vision and based on individual projects to a vision that allows understanding the role of organizations and organizational practices in the social construction of a new reality that is urgent from the solution of these great challenges (Manders, Wieczorek, & Verbong, 2018).
This theme has both theoretical and empirical relevance, given the growing academic and managerial interest in the search for answers to the great societal challenges by organizations (van Wijk et al., 2013). However, questions related to the multiplicity and heterogeneity of actors and organizational practices involved in collective action (Grodal & O’Mahony, 2017) in search of answers to major societal challenges still need to be better explained. Thus, the presentation of cases or reflections that investigate these themes based on theories of social construction that have emerged in recent decades are encouraged, such as sociological institutionalism, relational view, social analysis of networks, policy networks, ecosystems, collective innovation, in sum, theories that deal with the social processes of decision and collective action.

Different markets and their processes, such as competition, cooperation, risk, evaluation and valuation, impact organizations, their strategies, structures and governance. Power, politics, morality, laws and interests are also relevant aspects for understanding the construction of markets and how organizations relate to it. In addition, institutional diversity is strongly influenced by economic agents. Taking these phenomena into consideration, Economic Sociology is one of the areas that has contributed the most and still has great potential to stimulate new theorizations in the field of Organizational Studies. This branch of sociology has broadened the understanding of economic action, mainly by transposing the rationalist assumptions of Traditional Economic Theory and privileging cultural, social, cognitive and political aspects in the dynamics of markets and organizations. We understand that the distinctive character of Economic Sociology, among so many other theories in Organizational Studies, is the concept of socially embedded economic action and its relationship with markets, organizations and institutions. Therefore, with the objective of deepening knowledge in the area of Organizational Studies about the relationship between Markets, Organizations and Institutions, we welcome empirical and theoretical papers from multiple theoretical perspectives, such as: Economic Sociology, Sociology Markets, Political Economy, Socio-Economy, New Institutional Economics, Institutional Theory, Comparative Institutional Analysis, Field Theory, Social Network Analysis and Political Science. The theme is open to both qualitative and quantitative research.

The teaching case is a type of approach that encompass a report of a situation experienced by a professional, a private, public or third sector organization, or a specific project of practical and / or social nature, which presents a dilemma to be analyzed in the context of undergraduate or graduate education. Thus, the case method subsidizes the decision-making process, providing the opportunity for greater integration between theory and practice. The main objective is educational and learning-oriented and the development of subject-specific skills (Alberton e Silva, 2018).
Between 2007 and 2018, ANPAD events published 277 teaching cases. The quantitative is significant, since in the last four years 117 cases have been published, which is equivalent to 42.24% of the case publications of the last 10 years, indicating a perspective of growth by the modality. The number of journals that publish cases for teaching has also increased significantly, and there are already more than 20 magazines that publish them regularly.
Some characteristics of a good teaching case include the clarity of the objective and dilemma, its contribution to the area of management knowledge and the context in which it was developed, as well as the author's impartiality in presenting the case, the provision of information. Incidents or dialogues covering the context, background, agents involved and the dilemma, as well as the quality of teaching notes (Alberton e Silva, 2018).
The format of a teaching case is very specific. It is a single 8 to 16 page document organized into two major sections - case description (narrative) and teaching notes.
The teaching notes are fundamental because they aim to guide the teacher in the analysis of the case in the educational context, either undergraduate or postgraduate.
The case analysis should be presented exclusively in the teaching notes, through discussion questions that offer “possible answers” (quantitative and / or qualitative) - supported by references of the literature - for each of the questions proposed. In other words, teaching notes should not have a literature review section. References to the literature should be made while articulating the answers to the questions.
Also, simply suggesting a set of discussion questions is not a sufficient condition for teaching notes. Each proposed question requires a careful analysis supported by the literature.’
The teaching case positioning is very relevant. Case authors should clearly state the academic objectives of the case, the issue (fundamental issue), the discipline (course), and the program level (undergraduate or graduate) where the case could be applied. In other words, a case that suits everyone and everything will not be adopted by anyone.

The promotion of innovative educational initiatives oriented to sustainability and spirituality has occurred in three instances: institutional, organizational, and didactic-pedagogical. At the institutional level, since the 1970s, Conferences, Letters, and Declarations of principles established by intergovernmental and international bodies and agencies, such as the UN, have contributed to the dissemination and institutionalization of sustainability in education. In Brazil, in the late 1990s, the sustainability theme became mandatory in higher education (Law 9795/1999). In parallel, from the 1990s, the development of the study of spirituality in organizations took shape, mainly with the support of the MSR (Management, Spirituality, and Religion) group at the Academy of Management (USA). The MSR explores how spirituality can influence organizational dynamics and affect management results, seeking to understand the meaning of work better, the impact of spirituality and spiritual leadership in the workplace, the purpose of business and the distinctive elements of spiritual aspects, or even religious, individual. More recently, in 2015, after the 2030 Agenda and the Sustainable Development Goals publication, education for sustainability and spirituality gained even more strength as they are fundamental to achieve the proposed objectives. The responsibility of Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) is to translate global goals into studies and learning experiences that encourage the training of responsible and conscientious professionals. Initiatives related to curricular and co-curricular experiences, pedagogical experimentation, active and innovative methodologies, on-campus and off-campus management and impact are fundamental for developing professionals prepared to deal with the socio-economic and environmental challenges of the society in which we live. In this sense, the theme proposed here is dedicated to exploring innovative experiences of HEIs and teacher-researchers in education for sustainability and spirituality in the Administration and Accounting courses. We believe that encouraging research in this area is fundamental for the greater dissemination of acceptable practices that can be applied and replicated by HEIs to expand education's social impact.
The theme includes, but is not limited to, the following topics:
? Theoretical approaches to Education for Sustainability and Spirituality in Administration and Accounting courses.
? Curricular and co-curricular experiences; inter, multi and transdisciplinary Education for Sustainability and Spirituality in Administration and Accounting courses.
? Pedagogical experimentation in Education for Sustainability and Spirituality in the Administration and Accounting courses.
? Active and innovative methodologies for Education for Sustainability and Spirituality in the Administration and Accounting courses.
? Evaluation of education experiences for sustainability and spirituality.
? Campus and people management for sustainability and spirituality in HEIs.
? Definition, monitoring, and reporting on the social impact of HEIs.
? Role of sustainability and spirituality in the development of professionals.
? Educators’ training for Education for Sustainability and Spirituality in the Administration and Accounting courses.
? Challenges and advances in adapting the Administration, Accounting and Tourism courses to regulatory aspects, to the principles of certifiers, accreditors, and associations (PRME - Principle for Responsible Management; Global Compact, AMBA, EQUIS / EFMD, AACSB)

Design Science and Design Science Research have developed in different areas of management, including Information Systems and Operations Management, for example. Recently, the Journal of Operations Management opened a department to advance methodological knowledge and encourage research using this method.

Research that produces scientific knowledge on how to design, evaluate and implement artifacts for the improvement of Brazilian organizations is timely and necessary for the advancement of society. Currently, we see a high concern in Professional Masters and Doctorates to generate technological products. These products can be considered artifacts.

In this sense, this track aims to receive research dedicated to scientific advancement (Design Science), methodological (Design Science Research and other methods) and the results of the use of DS / DSR in the different divisions of the National Graduate Association and Business Research (ANPAD).

This theme invites authors to submit their articles on the following topics, but not restricted to them:
- Discussion about the paradigm of Design Science;
- Research methods in this paradigm (DSR and Technical Action Research - TAR, for example);
- Criteria and process of validation of artifacts, internally and externally;
- Collection and analysis methods used throughout the DS research (interviews, focus group, case study, survey, etc.);
- Discussions on a definition of artifact types, problem class, and generalization;
- Research resulting from the application of Design Science.

The professional practice of management and accounting and scientific research in academic life are seen here as knowledge-intensive situations, and thus, their teaching and education should highlight the analysis of their fundamentals and epistemological and methodological dimensions.
The classic concepts of Episthemê, Téchnê and Phrónesis are used as reference, forming a trilogy that favored the unity of human knowledge, which governs action and decision, implying prudence, and direct learning through experience.
However, the post-Aristotelian Western tradition concealed prestige and space in the school institutions, to analytical and abstract reasoning knowledge, the Episthemic one, splitting it from the practical knowledge of the course of action (Phrónesis) and the ability knowledge-in the construction of every order artifacts (Téchnê), an instrumental knowledge, be it mechanical or mental (the calculus).
Taken to the extreme of rationalism the epistemic knowledge has been the basis of our higher education, adding to it- but never adequately integrating it to the technical-instrumental knowledge. And the phronetic knowledge, which is refractory to exhaustive conceptual analysis, even though omnipresent in every business, policy, school education and even in the scientific enterprise, has been upheld outside the field of interest and research.
The return to practice as a focus of reflexion evidences divisions in the conceptions of knowledge, generates the problematic field of this proposed theme here restricted to the formation and teaching of management, accountancy professionals and academic management researchers.
The interest in educating brings to the teaching and research environments all the burden of knowledge situations in future professional´s life, departing from two perspectives: (i) the epistemic (understanding how they are structured and interfere in the professional action), and (ii) the pedagogical one (strictu sensu school institutions in graduate programs and undergraduate level as well), to accomplish their educational aim.
Research topics of interest such as:
1. (1) value (relevance), conditions and limits of the use of these concepts, given historical contexts diversity;
2. (2) theory and technology in curricula, considering the presence of Phrónesis in professional practice,
3. (3) place and value of theoretical research in the area, considering that at present the instrumental logic confounds Epistheê and Téchnê;
4. (4) Practical wisdom, management of personal knowledge and its implications.
5. (5) Professional practitioner and research practitioner concerning teaching and educating management and accountancy as agents of phrónesis;
6. (6) comparative studies between the Brazilian context and other countries regarding the evolution of knowledge in the field of teaching, developing and research in managing and accountancy,
7. (7) Epistemology and reflective thinking and reflexivity in training, academic and practice education and teaching, in management and accountancy.

Reflective studies about researchers, managers, accountants formation, development and teaching and various forms of knowledge are expected: the epistemic or theoretical one (contemplative knowledge), technical knowledge based on techné (know how to do) and the one resulting from phrónesis (knowing how to deliberate in specific contexts, how and when to act).
By examining the own "nest" (that of the academy and that of the management and accountancy professionals) guides practitioners to exercise criticism and reflection about the knowledge they use and produce.

Keywords: Teaching, professional development and research epistemology ; Teaching and researching Techné, Phronesis and Practical Wisdom ; Tacit and Personal Knowledge of the Professional ; Epistemological, methodological, and metatheoretical analysis on teaching, developing and researching ; Reflexivity of the researcher and professional in administration and accounting

There is a movement towards the dissemination of quality assurance regimes in higher education in more than half of the countries in the world, whose governments have implemented certification and compliance systems through the validation of quality standards (Jarvis, 2014; Croucher, & Woelert, 2016). In Brazil, through Capes, the country entered the international logic, which is about increasing competitiveness in higher education for an increasingly global research dynamic (Hammarfelt, & Fredrik, 2015). According to the defined objectives, Capes proposes to maintain an improved evaluation system to obtain a national standard of academic excellence (Capes, 2008). Although the system is considered one of the most modern in the world (Maccari, Lima, & Riccio, 2009; Nascimento, 2010), there are criticisms, such as, for example, that the system is standardized for all areas of knowledge, a fact criticized by Spagnolo and Calhau (2002) who point out the presence of heterogeneity between different areas of knowledge, as well as diversity regarding economic issues and access to resources. The evaluation makes it possible to compare performance between higher education institutions by establishing a ranking, so that the concept obtained is reflected in the ability to raise funds (Dias Sobrinho, 2003). The exposed fact has two developments, the first of which points out that higher education institutions undergo greater accountability and obtain financing based on performance (Croucher, & Woelert, 2016), causing an increase in organizational competitiveness. The second implication is institutional isomorphism, which is more frequently established in a field with high uncertainty and may be associated with the desire to resemble structures to the most legitimate organizations to increase the chances of success (Dimaggio, & Powell, 1983). This practice exists almost naturally among organizations and the greater the tendency to be the more regulated the organizational field (Peci, 2006). This factor can lead many institutions to place regulatory standards above their own strategic objectives (Maccari et al., 2014; Spagnolo & Calhau, 2002). The major implications of isomorphism in an organizational field such as that of higher education is the generation of barriers to qualitative advances in science. After this preamble, we suggest the following topics for the generation of associated research, in order to contribute to the deepening of the discussion around the theme: a) Institutional evaluation and quality in Brazilian HEIs; b) Impact of Postgraduate Programs on local, regional and national development; c) Participation in rankings and the credibility of the institutions; d) Regulation impacts on institutional legitimacy; e) Pillars of institutional evaluation; f) Relationship between the means and the purposes of the evaluation; g) Strategic Planning x regulatory standards; h) Brazilian scientific internationalization policy; i) The role of evaluation in academic-scientific expansion; j) Professionalization of management in higher education; l) Competition, cooperation and compliance in university management; m) Paradox between regionality and access to resources; n) Bureaucracy and organizational effectiveness; o) Evaluation and control bodies as guidelines for institutional governance.

It is known that faculties who have graduated from bachelor’s courses do not, in essence, receive adequate training to carry out their teaching activity in their undergraduate studies and that post-graduate programs favor research training. Thus, specifically in the areas of Administration and Accounting, the existence of didactic-pedagogical semi-training is discussed. The developments of such scenario are diverse and reflected by the low marks in exams such as the Enade and the Sufficiency Exam of the Federal Accounting Council, dissatisfaction of students in class, didactic methodologies that are not innovative and do not develop the necessary soft skills for a critical and reflective professional. Furthermore, there is evidence that graduate programs are not preparing faculties to avoid the simple repetition of content, without adequate epistemological, theoretical, and didactic training to prepare them to act in the classroom, creating an environment that favors learning provides support to students. The literature also points out that post-graduate programs do not offer specific training for academic guidance, supervision of teaching internships; evaluation of scientific work; management of universities, among other roles that faculties in the area may assume. It is essential to point out that such a scenario is not conducive to developing an Academic Professional Identity, so faculties do not assume themselves as educators and face the responsibility and complexity involved in teaching practice in its various facets. Thus, faculties’ understanding of their role as faculties in the business area is fragmented and superficial, bringing a possible departure from the profession, the lack of responsibility and commitment to teaching, and a pedagogical practice that is not adequate current reality. Thus, the proposed theme aims to disseminate new reflections in the field presented and encourage production and debate to contribute to the theoretical and empirical development of this scientific field in order to improve it. Among the topics of interest proposed as a suggestion (not limited to) to integrate this thematic line are
1. Teaching and didactic strategies
2. Learning in the context of Administration and Accounting
3. Evaluation of teaching and learning
4. Training and knowledge for teaching
5. Professionalisation and teaching identity
6. The context of teaching-learning in Administration and Accounting in Brazil: the education system
7. Planning and organization of teaching work
8. New challenges, perspectives, and reflections on teaching, learning, and evaluation
9. Learning environments in Administration and Accounting (virtual, physical, pedagogical, psychological, social)
10. Reflections and practices in teaching, learning, and evaluation in the context of emergency remote education
11. Training new faculties: teaching internship and academic guidance
12. Reflexivity and training: experience reports on teaching practice
13. Teaching and student skills

The proposed theme refers t ohigh educacion management and its competitiveness strategies with the objective of advancing the discussion of university management, observing its complexity, atypicality and specificities.
Aspects such as diversity of objectives, highly specialized professionals and the fact that they have several objectives such as teaching, research, extension and management, make higher education institutions develop structures, ways of acting and making their own decisions (BUSCH, 2005; MEYER; LOPES, 2015). Several studies suggest different models for analyzing university organizations. Contreras and Mascayano (2018), for example, suggest a new model called New University Governance to analyze these organizations. Miller, McAdam and McAdam (2014) in their study, aimed to analyze business models of universities within the United Kingdom, from the perspective of stakeholders. Navarro and Gallardo (2003) and Tian and Martin (2014) also present alternative model proposals for university management.

The role of these institutions becomes strategic, as well as their study, since they are where new generations of professionals and citizens are formed. Therefore, studies and research that contribute to the advancement of knowledge and responses to the problems faced by these organizations have repercussions on society as a whole.
The Coronavirus Pandemic also showed that although the use of technology and the use of new teaching and learning methods have evolved, in order to improve and qualify the skills of students and teachers, much remains to be done. In this sense, new forms of management and teaching / learning experienced during the pandemic can contribute to studies in the area.
The demand for innovation and knowledge highlights the role of the third mission in universities, raising questions about the challenges of universities in dealing with a variety of tasks, including cooperation with industries, transfer of technology and knowledge, creation of companies and startups (MASCARENHAS et al ., 2017).

The findings of a recent survey on entrepreneurship and innovation in the environment of Brazilian universities, promoted by SEBRAE E ENDEAVOR (2017), confirm that most Brazilian universities are not considered entrepreneurial, opening up research opportunities on the orientation and entrepreneurial attitude of students and teachers .

This theme seeks to contemplate studies that address the different dimensions of university administration, from studies on strategies used by HEIs, university-company interaction, the contribution of higher education institutions to sustainable development, people management and leadership, management academic, in addition to technological innovation, innovation in teaching / learning methods, innovation in the university environment, incentives to startups, the contribution of higher education institutions to the development of entrepreneurial posture and virtual universities. Works on attracting and retaining students are also welcome, both in person and online.

It is believed that the proposed theme will allow for greater cooperation between researchers and the exchange of scientific information in administration and accounting.

The research methods are dynamic and with permanent development, as they reflect cultural, social, and technological changes. Therefore, there is a need for continuous education of researchers. Thus, it is understood as relevant to the development of research and reflections on the different Research Methods, been qualitative, quantitative, or mixed. Such research and reflections make it possible to highlight limitations and potentialities to generate new perspectives for research in Business and Accounting.

Main Topics:

- Discussion about methods on different theoretical perspectives and the impacts of the application of these methods in the development of knowledge in Business and Accounting.

- Discussion of best practices, limits, benefits, differences, and similarities of research methods.

- Scientific research Planning: Identification of gaps in knowledge, conceptual model, prevention of bias (e.g. common method bias), etc between different methods.

- Approaches to the construction and testing of theories: life story, narratives, case study, action research, design science research, applied research, participant observation, phenomenology, phenomenography, grounded theory, among others.

- Interdisciplinary, multidisciplinary, transdisciplinary, multi-theoretical, and multi-paradigmatic approaches to data analysis.

- Construction of instruments and data collection: observation, interview, documents, ethnography, videos, images, database, relationship data (online social networks), survey, experiment, simulation, development of scales, validity, confiability, etc.

- Data analysis: statistical modeling, econometrics, psychometric, scientometrics, bibliometrics, informetrics, webometrics, patentometric, altmetric, social network analysis, content analysis, discourse analysis, movie content analysis, data mining, etc.

The theme "Behavioral strategy: psychology, sociology, politics and decision-making in organizations" aims to advance the discussion in the field of human actions that influence strategic decision-making (Steensen, 2014). The scope of the theme starts from assumptions arising from the principles of cognitive, behavioral, social and evolutionary psychology and its diverse applications in processes, agents, antecedents and consequences of decisions in organizations. In addition, it opens space for studies involving sociology, anthropology, politics, behavioral economics and applied neuroscience. Thus, it aims to propose a research space for the interaction between these theoretical bases, levels of analysis and compatible methodological approaches (Kline, 2008).
The discussion on the scope of behavioral strategy starts from three views - limited, intermediate and extended (Hambrick & Crossland, 2018). The first restricts the behavioral strategy to conflicts between rationality and cognitive biases, a subject that has gained interest, especially since the 1970s. The intermediate view assumes that other psychological aspects have an effect on the strategic decision such as cognition, attention, search, aspirations and, in particular, that the analysis of the actors and decisions must be interpreted from a dynamic rather than a static perspective (Dagnino, 2015). The third, extends the limits of behavioral strategy beyond the individual and opens space for social psychology and its consequences (sociology, politics, etc.). Thus, it provides studies focusing on team composition, heterogeneity of decisions, coalitions and conflicts and divergent interpretations (Augier et al., 2018). Analyzing the composition of studies submitted to previous versions of this theme, it appears that it is precisely this expanded view that best reflects the scenario of research on behavioral strategy in the country.
This way, studies are sought when their contributions include, but are not limited to, The Upper Echelon Theory, Agency Theory, Corporate Governance, Threat-rigidity, Adaptation, Attention-based View, TCT, Strategic Inertia, researching the characteristics of decision-makers and performance, strategic decision-making, opportunism, resource adaptation, strategy implementation, crisis behavior. In particular, decision making and other aspects that are influenced by the context. Research in an institutional context, including the cultural one, such as that of Brazil, can contribute significantly to the development of the area.
For this iteration of the theme, a more mature process of contributions is sought (Hoskisson et al., 1999) - based on solid literature, development of clear and structured hypotheses and propositions and, consequently, contributions of interest to the discussion in the area (Brinberg & McGrath, 1985; Van de Ven, 2007; Reypens & Levine, 2018; Jacquard & Jacoby, 2019). In addition to the methods traditionally used in strategy, there is room for methodological experimentation (mixed methods), as well as methods that can bring novelty to research in the area - experiments, neuro/psychological analysis, machine learning and deep learning, among others.

Keywords: Behavioral strategy ; Strategic decision-making ; Cognition ; Psychology

The capacity of the firm's resources stems from its ability to promote the best trade-off between exploration and exploitation (March, 1991). The understanding of these two concepts related to the search and application of organizational knowledge – exploration and exploitation – involves its connection with a wide set of other elements that are part of its ontological and epistemological model. By specifying in detail the characteristics relating to the two concepts, it automatically contributes to the understanding of the third concept derived from both, ambidexterity. Gupta, Smith, and Shalley (2006), in the analysis of articles published in the Academy Management Journal in 2006, evaluated that the concepts of exploration and exploitation need to be discussed under different theoretical currents: technological innovation, organizational design, organizational adaptation, organizational learning, competitive advantage or organizational survival. (Oreilly III & Tushman, 2008) (Popadiuk, 2012) (Popadiuk et al., 2018). Since 2007 when the first article on ambidextrous was published in EnAnpad, other studies on the subject have been developed in Brazil among publications in periodicals, congresses, books, chapters, and dissertations. However, this discussion is still very incipient in Brazil. In the EnAnpad 2109 was presented only one Panel on the subject and three articles in 2020. However, since 2010, at least 1,000 international articles on the subject have been published, according to the Web of Science. Thus, we understand that this discussion has the potential to be explored in the Brazilian context.

For this, we suggest the submission of theoretical and empirical papers that contemplate the association of ambidexterity with social capital, entrepreneurship, absorptive capacity, knowledge transfer, knowledge sharing, organizational learning, networks, decision making, innovativeness, organizational structure, transaction cost, agency theory, sustainability.

Other associations are welcome, as long as they are genuinely and theoretically based on the perspective of ambidexterity.

Semi-autonomous organizations are characterized by units with relative autonomy, usually present in highly hierarchical organizations or other types of relationship networks. This type of organization usually has its decision-making and administrative structure and enjoys some autonomy (Meyer et al., 2017). However, they remain linked to central administration and a code of standards to be followed. In these cases, parent organizations' performance, whether public or private, depends more firmly on semi-autonomous units' performance (Barnabas & Mekoth, 2010; Gelade & Young, 2005; Sengul & Gimeno, 2013). It is the case for corporate branches (Menz, Kunisch, & Collis, 2015), franchises (Blut, Backhaus, Heussler, Woisetschläger, Evanschitzky, & Ahlert, 2011), amoeba management (Adler & Hiromoto, 2012; Urban, 2017; Meyer et al., 2017), and other types of organizations from a growing movement of empowerment, flexibility, and agility, focusing on results that is happening in retail in general and in retail banks (Sierra et al., 2019).
On the other hand, temporary organizations are characterized by situations in which the structures are developed with a determined time. For example, in organizations' strategic projects, in field hospitals, or in a semi-permanent way, as in repetitive events. In strategic projects, they continue to impact companies even after the closure (Eskerod et al., 2015) or, still, management of semi-autonomous teams, called amoeba management (Urban, 2017).
Due to the influence of semi-autonomous and temporary organizations in the parent organizations' strategic performance, in this theme, it is proposed to organize this research dispersed, mainly, in the context of an emerging country like Brazil. Thus, we suggest some submissions that can contribute and deepen this discussion on strategies in semi-autonomous and/or temporary organizations: Upper-Echelon Theory; Stakeholders; RBT (Resource Based View; Capabilities; Knowledge Based View); Neo-Institutional Theory (social and economic); among other approaches in strategy that can be studied in semi-autonomous and/or provisional organizations.

The proposed theme is Enterprise Risk Management: Strategic Management, Organizational Performance, and Corporate Governance. Based on COSO (2004, 2017), considering risk as the possibility of an event to occur and negatively affecting the achievement of organizational objectives and opportunity as the possibility of an event to occur and favorably influence the achievement of organizational objectives, it is understood that The proposed theme is associated with the academic division “Strategy in Organizations”, in the sense that enterprise risk management conspires for the effective implementation of organizations' strategy. The approach adopted addresses risks from all possible sources that impact organizational management, for example, financial risks, strategic risks, operational risks, political risks, economic risks, natural risks, image risks, cyber risks, and others. In an integrated way, it can be understood that enterprise risk management connects with strategic planning through the assessment of organizational performance measured by the Balanced Scorecard (Kaplan, 2012, 2009). Thus, the timeliness and importance of the proposed theme “Enterprise Risk Management and Organizational Performance” lies in its proximity as a management tool to enhance the achievement of the objectives proposed by the organizational strategy in an increasingly volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous environment. Going far beyond compliance, compliance with rules, which may at first glance prove to be a reactive approach, enterprise risk management proactively aims to identify, analyze and address business risks by seeking to increase the possibility of that organizational objectives are realized, increasing the performance of organizations. Additionally, it is noteworthy that enterprise risk management must go beyond the boundaries of the organization, considering that the risks increase as the organization establishes relationships with other agents of the business environment. In this sense, in an increasingly volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous business environment, corporate risk management is an essential administrative tool to support the principles of good corporate governance that inspire greater confidence in the relationships established with the agents involved ( OECD, 2015).

Some topics that can be adopted are:
• Enterprise Risk Management Models;
• Enterprise Risk Management and Strategic Business Management;
• Enterprise Risk Management and Organizational Performance;
• Enterprise Risk Management and Corporate Governance;
• Culture of Enterprise Risk Management;
• Value Chain Risk Analysis;
• Enterprise Risk Management and Innovation Management;
• Enterprise Risk Management and Digital Business Management;
• Enterprise Risk Management and International Business Management
• Enterprise Risk Management in the Public Sector;
• Risk Management in Startups;
• Maturity in Enterprise Risk Management.

Other topics are welcome, as long as they are genuinely and theoretically based on the perspective of Corporate Risk Management.

Departing from the concept of strategizing, doing strategy has gained new contours and it is being understood as a socially immersed practice (Vaara & Whittington, 2012). This recognition opened space for an in-depth understanding of the phenomenon, as well as dialogues and intersections for an understanding of strategy with different perspectives of the field of management, organizations, social theory and language studies (Golsorkhi, Rouleau, Seidl & Vaara, 2015). From the contribution of Whittington (1996), who took a comprehensive look at strategy, by understanding strategy as a social practice (from the practice turn of social science) to explain that strategy is a localized realization, built daily by a series of practitioners (Jarzabkowski, Kaplan, Seidl, & Whittington, 2016). It is understood that the strategy is realized at a micro level, but also carries all meanings, models, tools, values, etc., which are shared at the macro-level (Golsorkhi, Seidl, Rouleau, & Vaara, 2015).
In face of this discussion, the phenomenon of strategy in this theme can be understood from: (i) diverse onto-epistemological approaches, (ii) different theories, conceptions, sociological and organizational concepts, and (iii) innovative methodological procedures and non-traditional approaches.
Thus, we call papers especially interested in themes, conceptions and approaches regarding:
(i) practices developed by different practitioners and professionals, for example, middle managers as articulators of strategizing;
(ii) the role of routines in the articulation of processes and practices of strategizing;
(iii) the socio-material dimension and the participation of non-human elements in strategizing;
(iv) the language elements involved (discourses, narratives, rhetoric, vocabularies);
(v) the open strategizing practices and initiatives considering the openness and closure paradox
(vi) the processsuality and the temporality of the phenomenon from the strong process view;
(vii) the role of history and memory in the strategizing;
(viii) strategizing in hybrid, extreme, pluralistic, and/or digital institutional contexts;
(ix) other theoretical approaches and interactions to illuminate the strategy making.

We encourage studies thinking about research problems that can (re)discuss the logic and dominant assumptions of the field of strategy from idiosyncratic angles of Brazilian reality. Thus, we propose some provocative (but not exhaustive) questions about the theme:
- How do managers, with their own models in the field of strategy, appropriate, interpret, build and rebuild them for the realization of the strategy?
- How do different actors (intra and inter-organizational) get involved in this perspective?
- How does language become a central element in strategy making?
- How are artifacts and socio-material elements used in this daily realization?
- How do practices and processes vary concerning the nature of the organization?
- How does strategic doing take place in pluralistic contexts and/or in non-traditional organizational processes?
- How is time, history, memory intertwined with the strategy-making?
- How do different organizational practices affect the opening of the strategy?
- What methodological procedures allow concatenating the different dimensions and/or elements of strategy making?

New questions are welcome, as long as they are under a genuine and theoretically based on strategizing.

This theme discusses the tricks of the trade of doing research and of implementing non-market strategy nowadays local and international. The world has suffered considerable political turmoil in recent years that has urged firms to deploy adaptive and proactive strategies in the non-market environment. For example, in Latin America, is common for the firms nurturing political connections with the home government (BANDEIRA-DE-MELLO; ARREOLA; MARCON, 2012), there is a relationship history between firms and government (GAMA; BANDEIRA-DE-MELLO; SPULDARO, 2018; MUSACCHIO; LAZZARINI, 2016). In addition, companies are increasingly adapting their socio-environmental strategies, via a partnership with non-profit associations or even directly (Gatignon and Capron, 2020). There is some research that appears to indicate an import of strategy beyond the market after COVID-19, as a way to generate competitive advantage (Lawton, Dorobantu, Rawjani and Sun, 2020).

Given this context, this theme will aim at addressing these questions:
- What role has the theory played in explaining the strategic relationship between business and government?
- What role should it play going forward to explain this phenomenon in Latin America and in develop countries?
- To what extent does rampant corruption is an opportunity and a threat to research and practice of the business and government relationship?
- What are the research opportunities available in Latin America considering the availability of the data?
- What will be the best non-market strategies to address future political issues that affect strategizing and organizing domestic and foreign firms?
- What is the future of corporate social responsibility (CSR)?
- How the MNEs are adapting their non-market strategies after the institutional shocks?
- How a firm's social and political arenas might be a competitive advantage local and global?
- How nonmarket strategies affect the firm's internationalization? the relationship between home and host country?
- How nonmarket strategies become competitive advantages beyond the home country boundaries?

This line of research aims to group studies of the different interorganizational and interpersonal relationships established in different types of business networks, their dyadic and multiple connections, vertical and horizontal, in relations of cooperation, competition and coopetition, as well as their relationship with performance based on creation and capture of value. It has, as base theories, the view based on resources, networks, theory of transaction costs and its variants. It also includes the process of creating, transferring and applying knowledge in different types of relationships between companies, organizations and or individuals and their results for the performance of the analysis units, including for innovation or through the use of Information and Communication Technologies . It also considers social relationships between individuals, formal and informal, and their impact on organizations. It also seeks to study how tacit phenomena impact the performance of organizations, considering social capital and trust as integrating elements of different social actors, as well as the dynamics established in these relationships based on the different elements of institutional theory.

In this sense, an axis is proposed for the following topics:
• Antecedents, dynamics and results of competition, cooperation, coopetition and conflict;
• Institutions and performance through interorganizational and interpersonal relationships;
• Creation and appropriation of value through competition, cooperation and coopetition strategies;
• Interpersonal relationships at intra-organizational, inter-organizational and inter-network level;
• Relationship strategies for co-marketing or co-innovation;
• Institutional logic of relationship strategies;
• Management of competition, cooperation and coopetition tensions.

Family business is the most common type of business around the world. In most countries, family business are the main responsible for employment and wealth generation (Zellweger, 2017). Even among public companies, families are the large shareholders (Bennedsen, Pérez-González, & Wolfenzon, 2010). This predominance has led to a growing number of studies focused on these companies. However, the simple prevalence of family business is not enough to consider it a topic of study, it is necessary to observe what makes the family firms a different body of organizations. Thus, the studies in this field has been driven by the perspective that family involvement in business through management, governance and ownership influences the direction of organizational strategy (Chrisman, Chua, & Sharma, 2005; Chua, Chrisman, & Sharma, 1999). Family members may seek to satisfy their non-economic objectives through the company, which involves emotional aspects. Therefore, family members, even if not present in the company's daily life, can influence the strategic decisions. On the other hand, family cohesion can be a source of advantage, which represents trust to customers, employees, investors, and other stakeholders. In a positive or negative way, the constant interaction between family and business systems is a unique characteristic of family businesses. Under this view, family businesses behave differently from their counterparts, since non-family businesses do not have family as a stakeholder.
From this perspective, this track expects to receive papers, with different theoretical and methodological lenses, which contribute to the knowledge advancement about family businesses, considering the peculiarities of families and how their relations with the business affect the strategy, both in the field of management and governance. Studies that address family strategies as a business family will also be welcome. Noteworthy, the track is not restricted to the comparison of family businesses with their counterparts, so we are also looking for studies that explore the heterogeneity between family businesses.

Some themes are suggested, but this is not an exhaustive list:
• Family business concepts application: family, family involvement, three circles model, familiness, socioemotional wealth etc.;
• Behavior and cultural aspects: altruism, learning, conflicts, commitment, emotions, identity, gender, values etc.;
• Family business life cycle and generational transition;
• Consulting and advising;
• Social and economic value generation;
• Family dynamics influencing family enterprises;
• Strategic aspects in family business: dynamic capabilities, absorption capacity, competitiveness, mergers and acquisitions, internationalization, etc.
• Entrepreneurship and innovation in family businesses: transgenerational entrepreneurship and entrepreneurial succession, entrepreneurial family businesses, entrepreneurial orientation, family entrepreneurial profile and behavior, corporate entrepreneurship and types of innovation;
• Corporate and family governance;
• Heterogeneity and comparative analysis between family businesses – public vs. private firms, large vs. small, single-family vs multifamily etc.
• Non-family employees and in-laws;
• Non-economic and economic outcomes;
• Family and business relationship with society: environmental, political and social aspects;
• Succession from different perspectives: business, family, and ownership.

Capabilities are different constructs integrated into companies to generate competitive advantage. Teece et al. (1997) argue that the term refers to the fundamental role of strategic management in adapting, integrating, and reconfiguring internal and external organizational processes and routines, resources, and functional skills to meet the needs of a changing environment. For the execution and development of a capacity, integration processes, and a combination of resources are necessary for effectiveness will be achieved through routines (Eisenhart & Martin, 2000; Zollo & Winter, 2002). The traditional conception of routines applies to relatively stable or predictably changing environments, the process of which depends on existing knowledge (Wang & Ahmed, 2007). On the other hand, for dynamic environments, a different type of capacity is necessary to respond to this environment, called dynamic capabilities, and are based on the generation of new knowledge (Ray, Barney & Muhanna, 2004). Capabilities, as well as resources, have been the subject of numerous classifications, suggesting that they can range from basic and common to advanced, scarce, and strategically important (Schriber & Löwstedt, 2015). The literature distinguishes a considerable variety of capabilities that operate in stable and dynamic environments (Eisenhart & Martin, 2000).The research identified and categorized capabilities at three levels (Carattoli, 2013), zero or ordinary (allowing the company to earn a living), first-level or dynamic capabilities, related to a company's ability to adapt, create, develop and modify the resource base in response to environmental changes (Giniuniene & Jurksiene, 2015) and the higher-order resources that result in the modification of the previous level.

Within this context, we propose studies on the capacities (dynamic capacity; absorptive capacity; innovative capacity; adaptive capacity, digital capacities, among others) to be submitted. In this sense, this track instigates the submission of articles that advance in the studies of capabilities and resources, including new empirical approaches. In addition to the articles now developed, we also suggest those that take into account the scope, considering that several factors can assist in capacity building, leading to equal or superior performances. Articles with multilevel models that can handle capacities at various levels are also welcome. We need to go beyond a focus of definition to a configurational target. It implies not only a comparison of the different levels and types of capacities but also mixtures of it conditioned to the structure of the company. Let us think about how to account for heterogeneity, and this implies that capacity development does not present an overall optimal model with variations for contingencies, but different optimal models for diverse firms and sectors.

The proposal for this track is not limited to looking exclusively at studies on capabilities. It will also accept articles which may contribute to the relation of capabilities with other theoretical fields: (1) RBV; (2) technology and innovation management; (3) international business; (4) digital transformation; (5) operations management; (6) information systems; (7) complementary assets; (8) marketing and human resources management; (9) knowledge management, among other areas.

The sustainable development demands changes in the business strategy and the operations of organizations, in the search for innovation and the inclusion of ethical, social and environmental values in addition to economic commitment. For that purpose, the proposed theme is subdivided into three major axes, detailed below.

1. Organizational Strategies for Sustainability

This axis addresses the theories, concepts and practices related to the processes of conception, implementation and evaluation of strategies for sustainability in public, private or third sector organizations, proposing to discuss the strategic challenges for the transition of organizations towards sustainability. The topics covered are competitive and collaborative strategies to achieve the socio-environmental sustainability of organizations; sustainable strategic projects; creating sustainable value for multiple organizations' stakeholders; sustainability functional strategies; strategic management of sustainability in the value chain; strategies for the implantation of industrial ecoparks and circular economy. It also seeks to stimulate discussion of the motivating and limiting factors of business adaptation, changes in routines and the development of dynamic social and environmental capacities. Moreover, research is encouraged on models for measuring sustainability and socio-environmental performance; sustainable balanced scorecard; Triple Bottom Line, and indicators related to the Sustainable Development Objectives (SDG).

2. Innovative and Sustainable Business Models

In this axis, the concepts and practices related to the new business models that seek to achieve sustainability through different paths are discussed, causing, above all, the positive impacts of a social and environmental nature. The axis covers topics such as: strategies related to sustainable social and environmental entrepreneurship; strategic social and environmental projects; B corporations; business of social and / or environmental impact; business oriented to the base of the pyramid; business models based on shared economy and circular economy; financing strategies for social and environmental projects and businesses; institutional partnerships for business and social-environmental projects. The main concern is to discuss the creation of strategically oriented businesses for sustainability through the application of innovative business models that allow the systematic management of social and environmental practices.

3.Strategies and Climate Change

Climate change and the impacts of extreme weather events pose a major threat to business operations and the development of a long-term strategy. On the one hand, companies are increasingly facing pressure to reduce their greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions to mitigate the effects of climate change. On the other hand, business operations, assets and supply chains are threatened by the increasing occurrence of extreme weather events. The relevance of climate change adaptation studies lies not only in the identification of the motivating and limiting factors but also in the recognition that changes in routines and capacity development need an adequate context to be perceived and assimilated. Thus, this axis seeks to stimulate discussions that analyze how companies incorporate climate change into their strategic planning and promote the adaptation of their resources.

The relationship between entrepreneurship and strategy is an interesting intersection for the discipline of strategic management. By strategy, we mean a series of interdependent activities through which companies create a competitive advantage. By entrepreneurship, we mean nascent companies competing for nascent markets, with the latter characterized as abstract, since they are not established. That said, we can argue that the entrepreneurial strategy is the strategy-making process in contexts of uncertainty, ambiguity, and fast pace (Ott & Eisenhardt, 2020). In addition, entrepreneurial behavior can also be observed in established companies when there is a need to expand into new markets or innovate (Davidsson, 2016). Therefore, it seems interesting to understand how entrepreneurs and established companies formulate strategies to create and capture value under conditions of uncertainty and the variables involved in this process. Important research lines that combine contextual backgrounds and individual attributes (experience, uncertainty, and resourcefulness) as influencers of the strategic process can advance the understanding of the emerging strategy. Examples of these approaches would be Effectuation (Sarasvathy, 2008) and Bricolage (Baker & Nelson, 2005), considered as flexible approaches and oriented to learning by doing (focus on the action). Other research lines focus on the entrepreneur's cognitive ability as an essential element for strategy-making, that is, combining a sequence of activities that lead the enterprise to sustainable competitive advantage. Examples of these approaches are found in the literature on managerial cognition and dynamic capabilities, for example (Helfat & Peteraf, 2015). In this way, there is an opportunity to explore the benefits of a possible balance between these two research lines (strategic management and entrepreneurship) and understand how entrepreneurs can combine the flexibility derived from action oriented to learning and a structured process of strategic formulation (Ott et al., 2017). Additionally, we see the opportunity to combine these approaches on entrepreneurship and some established theories on strategy (namely the Resource-Based Theory and its aspects, Transaction Cost Theory, Stakeholder Theory, among others). Based on the above, we consider some themes for this line:
• Differences in the strategic formulation process when we consider business as usual versus an orientation towards innovation or growth;
• Consolidated theories in strategic management that can provide insights into the approaches used in the literature on entrepreneurship;
• Effectuation, causation and/or bricolage and the influence of their respective antecedents (contextual and individual) on entrepreneurial action;
• Approaches as trial and error, experimentation and learning and their possible impacts on the performance of the new venture;
• Influence of the cognitive processes and mental models during strategic formulation;
• External factors (social, economic and political crises, negative market feedbacks) and their impact on entrepreneurial thinking and action (e.g., pivoting, reformulation of the business model, improvisation with resources, resource orchestration, turnaround);
• Methodologies that can capture the entrepreneurial process in nascent or already established companies.

The strategic management of organizations involves a wide range of stakeholders, defined as groups or individuals that affect or are affected by the organization in the pursuit of its objectives (Freeman, 1984). Understanding the relationships of these actors and their influence on organizational performance and value creation has gained prominence in the management literature (Boaventura, Bosse, Mascena and Sarturi, 2020; Barney, 2018; Harrison, Bosse and Phillips, 2010; Tantalo and Priem, 2016). In order to contemplate theoretical and empirical advances on these issues, the theme is divided into three themes. The Stakeholder management theme advances in the discussion on stakeholder management in different organizations and contexts and its interface with other themes in the management literature. The theme on Value aims to discuss and advance about the concept of value and its consequences on organizational context. Finally, the Organizational performance theme includes the analysis of the performance antecedents, performance measurement and the relationship between organizational strategy and performance.

Although the understanding of business networks, clusters, and ecosystems and their respective contributions to socio-economic performance has expanded steadily in recent decades, the literature houses an essential diversity of theoretical assumptions and empirical observations that are not distinct and often paradoxical. There is a lack of integration and dialogue between studies and approaches in the literature. This fact reflects the difficulty in understanding the complex interrelationships within, between, and beyond these arrangements and forms of governance.

In the hope of deepening and consolidating knowledge on this theme, this theme's objective is to explore and contribute to the debate on contributing approaches to the advancement of understanding about networks, clusters, business ecosystems, and their forms of governance. It focuses on processes, structures, the competitive capacity of these arrangements, involving public, private, and third sector organizations. In this sense, the emphasis is given to contributions aimed at systemic combinations of actors, involving processes and interactions, exchanges, and perspectives, intervening in the competitiveness and value generation of these inter-organizational arrangements.

Considering the scope presented, possible topics for submitting submissions include:

- Networks Theory, Clusters, and Business Ecosystems;
- Network Competitiveness, Clusters, and Business Ecosystems;
- Network Performance, Clusters, and Business Ecosystems;
- Comparative Network Analysis, Clusters, and Business Ecosystems;
- Identification of governance and management mechanisms related to group effectiveness;
- Relationship between social link and resources for governance and management of networks, clusters, and ecosystems;
- Cultural and institutional mechanisms for managing networks, clusters, and business ecosystems;
- Dynamic interaction of structure and management to achieve collective objectives;
- Management's role in the strategic orientation of Networks, Clusters, and Business Ecosystems;
- Innovation dynamics in Business Networks, Clusters, and Ecosystems;
- Networks, Clusters, Business Ecosystems, and Regional Development;
- Social Categories in Networks, Clusters, and Business Ecosystems;
- Sociometric Approaches of Network Organizations;

Scientific research in strategy has been developed with a dual approach, theoretical advancement and benefits or implications for practitioners. There is still no complete clarity on how to address this dual approach, in part because there are not yet as many technological articles (Biancolino et al., 2012). Technological articles are scientific articles in terms of methodological rigor and theoretical foundation (Motta, 2017), which lead to discussions about the application of certain knowledge in strategy, notably adhering to the interests of practitioners (Rojo & Walter, 2014). The potential for disseminating knowledge about the strategy of a technological article is one of the interests of this theme proposed here, involving the development of new products (Wang et al., 2020; Zhan et al., 2020), range of competences, relationship between university and industry (Cheng et al., 2020; Kohus et al., 2020), strategic indicators (Lai & Yuen, 2020; Villarreal et al., 2020;) among many other possibilities that lie outside the theoretical field, but which are relevant to the management and strategy of organizations. For that, discussions about the form and content of technological articles are interesting, adaptation or development of methods adhering to technological articles, definition of descriptive sections on the applicability of knowledge and the way results are discussed, oriented to provide insights, comparisons with similar strategic scenarios in addition to offering actionable and applicable artifacts in different contexts than the original research (Rosini et al., 2015). Therefore, it is a matter of discussing possibilities for the production of international quality applied research in the strategy area, documented in the form of a technological article, rigorously constructed, from a methodological and theoretical point of view, with a high potential for the dissemination and popularization of knowledge of strategy for organizations, practitioners and the academy.

In 2007, Nag, Hambrick and Chen, in the manuscript entitled “What is strategic management, really? Inductive derivation of a field consensus definition”, published in the Strategic Management Journal, discuss the definition of strategy and its field, incorporating six elements: “The field of strategic management deals with the main intended and emerging initiatives taken by general managers on behalf of owners, involving the use of resources, to improve the performance of companies in their external environments ”(Nag, Hambrick & Chen, 2007, p. 944). Notably, since the seminal propositions of Chandler (1962) about the concept of strategy, the field has evolved and sought to answer questions that go beyond these elements (Burgelman et al., 2018). In addition, Nag, Hambrick & Chen, (2007 p. 952) argue that strategy as a field of study has “amorphous borders and inherent pluralism”, not restricted to theoretical approaches or dominant methodologies. This perspective is corroborated by Ronda-Pupo and Guerra Martins (2012).

ANPAD, over the recent years, has encouraged the submission of themes that reflect research groups conduct according to their affinity around the themes proposed in the field of Strategic Management. We note, however, that there are emerging themes in which they may not be considered or contemplated only in a marginal manner, in addition to specific methodological challenges, of notable interest to the community. In addition, in line with recent themes proposed by the Strategic Management Society, we therefore seek to deepen traditional topics in the area of ??strategy that have evolved, especially in terms of their content and context, which can be observed by emerging methodological approaches and provide theoretical-conceptual discussions that advance.

Regarding the content of the strategy, we emphasize typical issues of the strategy levels, including generic, international, functional and corporate, including mergers and acquisitions, diversification, tacit collusion and alliances, among others, at home and abroad, are underlined, in addition to the highlight for the role of leadership and diversity. On the subject of the context of the strategy, the influence of the external environment contemplated in this theme is strongly highlighted, observed from the perspective of 03 (three) main approaches (see: Forsgren, 2013): (i) contingency theory and the necessary fit between strategy, organizational structure and external environment as a driver of performance; (ii) institutional theory and variables concerning political, economic, social and sectoral dimensions; and (iii) the behavioral theory of the relationship networks between the actors.

In summary, this theme seeks to include emerging or evolutionary themes, methodologies and approaches that are not being currently considered by the other ones. Examples could be: regional, local and sector studies of competitiveness, experiments and quasi-experiments in strategy, longitudinal and panel studies, in addition to typically qualitative, non-traditional approaches in the area, such as ethnography and phenomenology, which consider the content in a broader way and the context of the strategy and propose innovative discussions and reflections in the field.

The Corporate Finance theme has as main objective to promote works on the main scientific, theoretical and practical aspects of financial administration, addressing the themes of financing decisions, investment decisions, mergers and acquisitions, dividend policy, working capital management, asymmetry information between managers and investors, etc.
Financing decisions result in the capital structure of companies, which have been studied since the seminal works of Modigliani and Miller (1958). Since then, several important studies have been and continue to be carried out on the subject, resulting in theories such as the trade-off theory and the pecking order theory. However, despite being widely researched, the topic is still inconclusive.
Investment decisions make up capital budget projects. It is mainly related to the analysis of expenditure on fixed and, eventually, intangible assets.
Working capital management forms working capital decisions, composed of current assets and liabilities (cash, cash equivalents, accounts receivable, inventories, suppliers, etc.). Such decisions determine the short-term survival of organizations, whose determinants of liquidity, turnover and profitability basically base the analyzes carried out.
The dividend policy determines the distribution of profits to shareholders, in proportion to the proportions each has.
The waves of mergers and acquisitions represent the union of two or more companies according to the interests of the parties.
All these themes form the main scope of corporate finance, a fundamental pillar for the management of organizations.

This topic investigates the relationship between Corporate Governance Mechanisms and the mitigation of corporate agency conflicts. Corporate Governance Mechanisms include the board of directors, ownership structure, ownership concentration, the presence of institutional investors, the presence of minority block-holders, executive compensation systems, internal control systems, among others. We also invite studies that investigate the institutional environment and the mechanisms or laws that protect the rights of investors (shareholders and creditors). We also invite studies about the empirical outcomes of adhering to the ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance) practices. Furthermore, we invite submissions of studies that discuss the effects of creating, planning or incorporating corporate governance systems and policies on the financial and non-financial performance of organizations.

This theme includes studies that deal with studies that consider behavioral biases and disorders, which contradict the full rationality of investors and managers. In addition, this topic covers studies of an experimental nature, which are becoming increasingly common in the area of ??finance. As has been discussed in the literature, there is a discussion about the efficiency of the markets. This discussion also gained weight due to the appearance of speculative bubbles, as was the case of the internet bubble that hit the United States stock market at the end of the 1990s. More recently, we had the subprime crisis that also raised any doubts as to market efficiency and asymmetric information problems that could be identified in the most developed market in the world, which is the North American market. Below, we present in more detail the topics that make up this theme. Studies on the behavior of agents, decision making, Prospect Theory, heuristics and cognitive bias, mental accounting, among other approaches. Disposition effect. Analysis of the efficiency and anomalies of the markets. Experimental studies in finance. Herd effect. Investor humor, attention and experience. Implications of behavioral biases.

The topic of investments and asset pricing is part of the Finance division. The following topics are included: evaluation of investment projects, evaluations using the real options approach; Investments in individual assets and portfolios, asset pricing models, both fixed income and equities, fund performance appraisal and company valuation. It is possible to develop, evaluate, test and propose Financial asset pricing methodologies for Investment Funds and Market Index Investment Funds, and for Credit Rights Investment Funds and Real Estate Investment Funds, only bonds and securities securities included in their investment portfolios. The methodologies are developed according to the characteristics of each asset or group of assets. The process and methodology must follow the best market practices. Information on prices or factors to be used in the pricing of financial assets should preferably be obtained from public sources to facilitate replication. Furthermore, as examples of empirical work, models based on consumption and overview can be used; contingent asset markets; mean-variance frontier and beta representations; relationships between discount factors, betas and average-variance boundaries; existence implications and equivalence theorems; conditioning information; etc. Also, studies linked to securities ownership (CDB), which is linked to bank debt; Federal Government Bonds, which is a government debt; and also the Debentures, which are debts of the companies.

The theme aims to stimulate high level research on Markets and Financial Institutions in Brazil and the World. Objectively, the proposed theme hosts discussion on the aspects of market integration, monetary policy and financial stability, volatility and contagion transmission channels, market regulation, corporate banking, ratings, corporate governance of financial institutions, market concentration, valuation and performance of financial institutions, among others. Stricto sensu, the theme is articulated under two objectives. The first (1) is substantive: contributing to the debate on financial stability, market regulation and integration, and the management and evaluation of financial institutions, enabling insights into and out of economic orthodoxy to produce a purposeful agenda in the light of the trinomial. “Corporate Banking x Regulation x Market Integration”. The second (2) is methodological, and is directly related to the objective of the theme: to consolidate methodologies of studies that allow the extrapolation of "enlightened skepticism" from simple empirical evidence.
In relation to objective (1), investigations are encouraged that bring relevant contributions from the point of view of the development of instruments and financial institutions participating in the domestic and international financial system. In this context, regulation, market integration and financial globalization underpin a fertile research environment beyond classic institutional guidelines. Alternative monetary policies, reform, and new regulatory instruments provide a context for the production of comparative institutional reconstructions, discussing the evolution of certain governance arrangements of the financial system. That said, the proposed theme aims to provide an appropriate environment for the production and delivery of high impact investigations on the Markets and Financial Institutions.

Corporate and market risk management encompasses the study of value generation through the understanding of credit granting and risk analysis processes, the ability to use financial instruments for organizational leverage, and more specifically the use of financial derivatives. as an instrument for maximizing value. The aim is to favor decision-making processes under the theme of risks in view of the use of macro and micro economic information, the use of derivatives to protect market fluctuations in the assets that make up investment portfolios. It involves identifying, assessing, prioritizing risks in a coordinated manner, with practical applications to minimize the impact of unexpected and negative events or even to maximize the expected results for the organization. Topics on this topic include, but are not limited to, risk identification and analysis; assessment of risks arising from the use of financial instruments, with an emphasis on the use of derivatives; minimizing threats and uncertainties; monitoring and monitoring of risks, risk management, market, credit and operational risks. Risk management strategies, financial derivatives, commodities and other markets: forward, futures, options and swaps; derivative pricing. Work is expected to contribute to the theme of risk management and the use of derivatives in order to contribute to the literature on the subject, with a view to advancing finance studies in Brazil but also its intersections with international markets.

Data science has been driven by technological innovations and the massive generation and storage of information. Comprehensively, data science incorporates the use of scientific methods that explore statistical and computational tools, which are also traditionally used in finance theory and practice. However, more recently, data science has come to be associated with techniques linked with artificial intelligence, machine learning, big data, etc ...
In the financial field, machine learning algorithms are being used in several applications such as building portfolios, estimating asset prices, generating application scoring, forecasting credit risk migration, assessing customer churning between financial institutions, identifying fraudulent banking transactions, assessing and preventing human errors or failures in systems, analyzing propensity to purchase financial services or products, etc. The results of academic research have suggested that machine learning models outperform traditional statistical techniques.
The top finance journals are also exploring data science, bringing not only theoretical discussions supported by empirical analyzes through traditional regressions but also analyzes using techniques that explore big data and machine learning. From the perspective of finance theory, the use of more recent data science techniques can contribute to the investigation of hypotheses based on an empirical analysis less restricted by the usual regression models.
in this theme of the Finance Division, we privilege studies that explore data science to advance knowledge about theory and practice in finance. More specifically, we seek studies that analyze how and why models and techniques of artificial intelligence, machine learning and big data contribute to a better understanding of financial phenomena, bringing discussions about empirical evidence and theoretical paradigms.

The proposed thematic area refers to contemporary themes addressed by the Finance area, which are not covered in the other thematic areas, as they are emerging issues.
Sustainable finance generally refers to the process of taking environmental, social and governance (ESG) considerations into account when making investment decisions, leading to greater long-term investments in sustainable economic activities and projects. Environmental considerations can refer to mitigation and adaptation to climate change, as well as to the environment more broadly, such as the preservation of biodiversity, prevention of pollution and circular economy.
As suggestions for submitting articles, without limiting other emerging themes, the following are proposed:
(a) Sustainable Finance: Green Finance, green bonds, ESG Rating (environment social and governance), SDG (sustainable development objective - ONU) and measurement metrics, blended finance, circular economy, carbon credit.
(b) FinTechs
(c) Cryptocurrencies: Crowdfunding, blockchain, cryptocurrency, ICO (initial coin offer), STO (security token offer)
(d) Finance in sports

The justification for creating this thematic area is supported by the phenomena that have permeated the modern world, in the new reality and in the current scenario arising from innovation, new technologies and legislation that significantly impact the Finance area.

The value of companies has been increasingly influenced by their ability to generate innovations in products and services, as well as creating effective mechanisms to appropriate the value of such innovations (Ceccagnoli, 2009; Laursen & Salter, 2014). Thus, the protection of intellectual property (IP) assets has become paramount in the current knowledge society (Lall, 2003; Castells, 2000), being the main formal mechanism for appropriating innovations (Hall et al., 2014; Hurmelinna -Laukkanen & Puumalainen, 2007). As such, companies operating in highly competitive and knowledge-intensive sectors need to build robust IP asset portfolios, such as trademarks, patents, industrial designs and copyrights, to promote competitiveness (Huang & Cheng, 2015; Drivas et al., 2016). In addition, Brazilian universities have demonstrated an increasing engagement with IP assets, being, for example, in recent years, organizations installed in the country with the largest number of patent application filings. In view of the growing importance of intangibles, and a more fragile context of guaranteeing intellectual property in emerging countries like Brazil (Cuervo-Cazurra & Rui, 2017), the study of this theme is relevant to the national context. The theme involves research related to the management of intellectual property and technology transfer, including: technological prospection in the field of intellectual property; monitoring trends in trademark registrations; intellectual property challenges in digital transformation; assessment of the impacts of geographical indications (GIs); proposition and evaluation of strategies for transferring innovations generated by Science and Technology Institutions (STIs); evaluation of public policies to encourage the protection of creations; management of technology transfer agreements from STIs; assessment of the relationship of STIs with companies; evaluation of public policies to encourage the protection of creations; evaluation of the convenience of protecting creations and their dissemination; evaluation of the performance of Technology Transfer Offices (TTOs) and technological tools to support the management of intellectual property and technology transfer. In addition, this theme also focuses on analyzing the impact of intellectual property on environments that promote innovation in the academic, business, governmental and social organizations.

Renewal and change are at the heart of innovation; new themes and technologies often emerge, becoming challenges for the management of organizations, which must be prepared to analyze and manage emerging trends. Thus, this track covers studies that include emerging trends in innovation, which have not yet been widely discussed in any other track and which express potential debate and interest of the Innovation, Technology and Entrepreneurship Division. Examples of topics and questions of interest may be, although not limited to:

- Although advantage in global innovation is recognized, there is evidence that the ‘regional strategy’ agenda has recently emerged (Verbeke and Asmussen, 2016), and different aspects of proximity (as described by Boschma, 2005) should be considered for better understanding of geographical distance impacts on partnerships for innovation in both interorganizations and intra-organizations (offshoring). How can organizations benefit from the dispersed and geographically distant knowledge? How to overcome the challenge of long-distance collaboration? How do substitution and/or overlap (Hansen, 2015) influence the relations between partners with differences both geographical and non-spatial?

- Internationalization of R&D has been studied since the 1990’s, however there are still gaps to be focused: Deepen understanding of differences between companies from developed and developing countries both as home and host of R&D offshoring (Zedtwitz et al., 2015); Which are the R&D changes of the country of origin over time (Belderbos, et al., 2013)? Is local / regional development related to the participation of (foreign or national) MNCs in National Innovation System (Papanastassiou,et al. 2020)?

- Transformative Innovation is considered for addressing global challenges such as sustainability and inclusiveness. This requires the involvement of multiple actors and stakeholders, thus a research agenda is needed for management of distinct concerns and policy making (Schot and Steinmueller, 2018), arising questions: What are the trends in Policies for transformative innovation? Which are the needed abilities to involve different actors in the self-governance of transformative innovation? How entrepreneurs profile, motivations and opportunities can guide transformative Innovation?

- Adoption and diffusion of technological trends in several organizations have behaved like catapults to promote transformation of industries and opportunities for new business (e.g. 3D printing, artificial intelligence, IoT, autonomous vehicles, blockchain, biotech, nanotech). These topics are usually discussed from technical point of view, however scholars have neglected peculiarities of innovation management. How organizations develop capabilities for dealing with technological trends? What aspects of entrepreneurial activities matter for their adoption and diffusion?

- Although there are studies on the impacts of the process of financialization on investments in innovation (Lazonick and Mazzucato, 2013), the relationship between financialization and innovation management has been little explored. What conditions and contingencies does a financialized perspective of capitalism bring to the management, organization and results of innovation?

4 ? How can the approach to innovation as a complex and performative practice and process (Garud et al., 2018; Langley et al, 2013) contribute to issues such as uncertainty handling, learning, dynamic capacity building, strategic definitions, and more? What categories / concepts are relevant to address performativity and complexity and innovation as a process?

- Innovation and work. What concepts / categories are needed to understand the work of innovation? What elements of work organization are relevant to innovation? How to articulate this discussion with the question of ambidexterity, especially contextual ambidexterity (Gibson and Birkinshaw, 2004)? How to articulate existing concepts (competences, autonomy, cooperation ...) to explain innovation as a complex process and support innovation management?

- How new trends in entrepreneurship such as sustainable Business Models (Roome e Louche, 2016) imply the involvement of the stakeholders in the creation of capture of value? Innovative Business Models for Circular Economy (Lewandowski, 2016) in part as an opportunity of digializatization implies new ways to improve efficiency and reduce impacts on the environment comes as a new trend? Can this new Business Model bring changes in the businessess with an increase of serviction (Kohtamäki et al, 2019)?

- How can the circular economy provide opportunities for more sustainable impact businesses (Weetman, 2019)? In 2030, it is estimated that the world population will be 9 billion, which represents almost 3 billion more people consuming a whole variety of products and services. There is a consensus that maintaining such a high level of consumption today will be unsustainable due to the low amount of natural resources available (Bradshaw and Brook, 2014, WWF, 2012, Dauvergne, 2010). This depletion of the various natural resources, together with the problems related to the excess waste generated by the huge increase in consumption, will require new business paradigms.

- Can collaborative consumption change our world? Collaborative consumption allows people, in addition to realizing the enormous benefits of accessing products and services to the detriment of property, to save money, space and time. Through social networks, smart grids and real-time technologies, an overcoming of outdated hyper-consumption modes begins to happen, creating innovative systems, based on shared use, giving rise to new collaborative business models. (Cohen & Kietzmann, 2014).

- Why is co-creation important in creating new businesses? The co-creation strategy implies the creation of value by a group of stakeholders to obtain mutual benefits. Therefore, it involves the involvement of different audiences (employees, suppliers, customers) and even other companies in the process of creating / producing something. The term's authorship is due to Prahalad and Ramaswamy (2004). However, other concepts such as open innovation (Chesbrough, 2006) and crowdsourcing (Howe, 2009) are related to co-creation and all imply the creative participation of people and entities that, through creativity, resource sharing contribute to add value to new businesses.

The pursuit of the objectives of Sustainable Development has been increasingly present in the discourses of academics, researchers, policymakers and even of industry representatives. Therefore, innovation is one of the most profitable areas to achieve sustainability in the different spheres of society (BOONS; LÜDEKE-FREUND, 2013, BOSSLE et al., 2016, MATOS; SILVESTRE, 2013). Eco-innovation, or environmental innovation, consists of new or modified processes, techniques, systems and products that prevent or reduce environmental impacts (KEMP; ARUNDEL, 1998). KESIDOU; DEMIREL, 2012), caused by consumption and production activities (CARRILLO; GONZÁLEZ; KÖNNÖLÄ, 2009). Eco-innovation is not limited to innovation in products, processes, marketing methods and organizational methods, it can bring about sociocultural and institutional structures changes (OECD, 2009); besides used for pollution prevention and control (KEMP; PONTOGLIO, 2011). The drivers of eco-innovation adoption, such as regulation ( ), have led to the development of green products, sustainable management techniques and waste reduction (KEMP; PONTOGLIO, 2011). As well as clean energy sources (KEMP; PEARSON, 2008; KEMP; PONTOGLIO, 2011), creating new market spaces for products and services or processes oriented to environmental issues (CHARTER; CLARK, 2007; OLTRA; SAINT JEAN, 2009) integrating the Research and Development (R&D) area (CHARTER; CLARK, 2007). Thus, environmental innovation serves to prevent, reduce, diagnose and monitor anthropogenic damages generated by human actions (MARKUSSON, 2001) leading to the need to optimize the use of natural resources, such as energy and water, more efficiently. (EUROPEAN COMMISSION, 2007; KEMP; PONTOGLIO, 2011). In this context, industrial, environmental, technological and scientific policies must converge (COENEN; LÓPEZ, 2010) Hence, this call for papers aims to explore researches that relate different theoretical and methodological applications to the context of ecoinnovation. Some current and emerging topics of high interest for this call are: clean technologies; environmental patents; green R&D, eco-design; environmental innovation applied to the circular economy; innovation in the product life cycle; innovation in energy transition, energy efficiency, clean and renewable energy; disruptive environmental innovation; innovation for low carbon economy, innovation for Green Supply Chain Management; innovation for urban mobility, innovation for shared economy; innovation for sustainable management of water resources and forestry.

The emergence and expansion of social enterprises in different parts of the globe makes this phenomenon a focus of study of the administrative sciences, both to understand their empirical characteristics and to equip them with knowledge from the theory of organizations and the possibilities of modeling appropriate tools management. There is a trend of value review in traditional enterprises, particularly in terms of greater awareness of the impact they wish to have on society and the environment. As a result, new hybrid organizational formats emerge, seeking to achieve two goals previously seen as incompatible: financial sustainability and socio-environmental value generation. "Social enterprises", "inclusive businesses", "social businesses", and "businesses with social impact" are some of the terms currently used to explain organizations that seek to solve socio-environmental problems efficiently, and achieve financial sustainability through market mechanisms. Because it is a new terminology imported from the business environment, it has been the subject of vigorous debate between academics and practitioners. Nevertheless, there has been tension caused by the lack of a common understanding about this new concept which aims to reconcile two themes previously seen as irreconcilable: business and social impact. The lack of a homogeneous view is explained by two main factors: the different ways of defining the social character of the enterprises, and the different ways of evaluating the innovative character of this type of organization. ln this broad spectrum of actors, the configurations of these businesses take different forms. Each organization will position itself according to its objectives and interests, giving a different weight to each of the factors that make up the concept. ln 2019, a survey conducted by Pipe Social mapped 1002 businesses social enterprises in the country. Through interviews with entrepreneurs, experts, workshops with ecosystem actors and analysis of secondary data, it was found that the main area of activity of these enterprises has been green technologies (46%), citizenship (43%), education ( 36%), followed by health (26%), financial services (23%) and cities (23%).Of these enterprises, 42% had not yet received investments and 35% had not yet earned any value. In 2016 and 2017, 69 impact investing operations were recorded in Brazil, totaling US$ 131 million. These investments were concentrated in the information and communication technologies (ICT) sector, in line with global trends, totaling US$ 54 million in 16 businesses. According to the 2018 Aspen Network of Development Entrepreneurs (ANDE) Impact Investing Impact report, approximately half of these deals were under US$ 250,000. Thus, the purpose of this track is to foster and stimulate research on social enterprises and hybrid organizations. By promoting more in-depth analysis on the performance and development of social entrepreneurship and hybrid organizations in Brazil, this proposal aims not only to understand the performance of these enterprises more robustly, but also to illuminate, from different analysis prisms, the aspects that have conditioned the management and performance of these initiatives as important as they are emerging in the national context.

The term Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) emerged in 2002 from the 6th EU Framework Program for Research and Technological Development (FP6), which is a set of actions at the European Union level to fund and promote research. (European Commission, 2002). In the document, responsibility link to ethical issues (networking between existing bodies and activities, promoting dialogue in a global context, awareness-raising, training, research on ethics concerning science and technology) and uncertainty, risk and precautionary principle. (analysis and best practices). Over the last decade, the concept of innovation has driven much of the European research agenda (European Commission, 2013).
The global concern for the planet, its natural resources, as well as a just and inclusive society, motivate the responsibility in research and innovation (United Nations, 2015). This concept concerns governments, which can act through policies and regulations even though they are still in the development phase (Scherer, Palazzo, & Baumann, 2006). However, it also concerns private enterprise (Burget et al., 2016).
In practice, RRI aims to shape, maintain, develop, coordinate and align existing and innovative processes, actors and responsibilities related to innovation and research, to ensure desirable and acceptable research results (Stahl, 2013). It is therefore about developing new products and services that combine growth, performance and accountability. This responsibility is directed at customers and users as well as the ecosystem as a whole (Pavie, & Carthy, 2015).
In considering innovation as a process, RRI denotes guidance for anticipation, inclusion, responsiveness and reflexivity (Van Oudheusden, 2014). These four dimensions imply a collective and continuous commitment to being (Stilgoe, Owen, & Macnaghten, 2013). Anticipation describes and analyzes the intended and potentially unintended economic, social, environmental or other impacts that may arise and is underpinned by methodologies that include forecasting, technology assessment and scenario development (Owen, et al. 2013). Reflection reflects on the underlying purposes, motivations, and potential impacts of what is known (including the areas of regulation, ethical review, or other forms of governance that may exist) and what is not known (associated uncertainties, risks, areas of ignorance, assumptions, questions and dilemmas) (Owen, et al. 2013). Inclusion refers to diminished expert authority, with the inclusion of new voices in the governance of science and innovation as part of a quest for legitimation Owen, et al. 2013). Responsiveness requires an ability to change shape or direction in response to stakeholder and public values and changing circumstances. Responsiveness is, therefore, to make inevitable adjustments to innovation trajectories as they progress and mobilize the expectations of all stakeholders (Demers-Payette et al., 2016).
The field is broad and can be studied from the perspective of research developed at universities and research centers, in the context of public policies to encourage innovation and innovation developed through public initiative.

The role played by small and medium enterprises (SMEs) in national economies and societies around the world is paramount (OECD, 2017). Usually, they account for 99% of all businesses in a country (OECD/ETF/EU/EBRD, 2019) and are responsible for large contributions to GDP and employment (OECD, 2017). In Brazil, half of all formal jobs are sustained by small businesses which altogether produce a quarter of the country’s GDP (SEBRAE, 2018). These numbers, which can be much higher in developed countries (Edinburgh Group, 2013) indicate that SMEs support the growth of a strong middle class and increase the quality of life of entire populations.
The critical role played by SMEs, both socially and economically, and the threats they face, justify the efforts made to deepen understanding of the causes and the nature of their survival and growth. Therefore, the growth of small businesses is one of the main subjects in entrepreneurship research (Marvel, Davis, & Sproul, 2016). It is acknowledged that growth increases the chance of business survival and that the inability to expand is directly related to firm failure (McKelvie & Wiklund, 2010; Rauch & Rijsdijk, 2013).
SME growth, for both low- and high-tech businesses, is influenced by internal and external elements to the firm. The availability of human capital (e.g. Colombo & Grilli, 2005) and financial resources (Cowling, Brown, & Rocha, 2020), as well as the development of the firm's capabilities (e.g. Parida, Pesämaa, Wincent, & Westerberg, 2017), are examples of important predictors of this phenomenon. Additionally, the context can reveal conditions and possibilities for discovering, creating and exploring innovations (Ngoasong, 2018). Therefore, recent research has used, for instance, the innovation ecosystem as a lens of analysis for the creation of new businesses and to foster entrepreneurial action (Gomes, Facin, Salerno, & Ikenami, 2018).
However, the research on SME growth has proven to be particularly difficult (Shepherd & Wiklund, 2009). Few advances/breakthroughs have been made and convergences in the field are much rarer than fragmented results, due to multiple obstacles mostly stemming from inconsistent definitions, sampling challenges, and from the phenomenological complexity inherent to the growth process per se that makes it difficult to draw overarching conclusions (Demir, Wennberg, & McKelvie, 2017).
In this session, we focus on different aspects of the research on SME performance: birth, mortality, survival, growth, and scaling. We welcome qualitative, quantitative and theoretical papers related but not limited to the issues listed below:

1. Methodological challenges of researching SME innovation, entrepreneurship and performance, such as conceptual differences, metrics, units of analysis, etc.;
2. Identification of possible innovation patterns in SMEs and the relationship between organizational and innovative performance;
3. Investigations of entrepreneurship and its relationship with the development and performance of small businesses: entrepreneurial intention, behavior and attitude, characteristics of the entrepreneur, female entrepreneurship, etc.;
4. Important causal factors (internal and/or contextual) on the birth, survival, growth, portability, scalability, and failure of SMEs;
5. How innovation ecosystems affect entrepreneurial activity and/or SME development.

The Fourth Industrial Revolution strengthened the importance of culture and technical, behavioral and functional competences that must be improved during all years of study. In addition, the generic skills that enable successful participation in innovation and entrepreneurship processes are highly valued. The importance of innovations is clear, as companies and organizations continually seek out innovative employees. Companies need innovations to create competitiveness and the public sector to produce high-quality and cost-effective services (Keinänen and Kairisto-Mertanen, 2019). Thus, there is a need for professionals who are able to participate in innovation processes and who can contribute to the creation of innovations (Hero and Lindfors, 2019). However, “the role of higher education is not only to train undergraduate students for future work, but also to train future employees to perform work tasks, which then generate innovations” (Keinänen and Kairisto-Mertanen, 2019, p. 17). Thus, this poses challenges to the ways of educating, since we need changes in all the main stages of education: planning, implementation and evaluation of learning outcomes (Lappalainen, 2018).

More and more discussions on how to prepare people and environments to become more innovative and entrepreneurial are gaining ground in the academic and managerial context.

In this track, we will discuss papers focused on different aspects of research related to the technical, behavioral and functional side of innovation. Theoretical essays and empirical work on the following topics are accepted:

Leadership for Innovation
Skills for Entrepreneurship and Innovation
Entrepreneurial intention
Innovative and Entrepreneurial Behavior
Culture for Innovation
Pedagogy for Innovation

From the seminal contribution of Schumpeter (1912; 1942), in which innovation is given the main role in the generation of economic development, new advances have been made to better understand this phenomenon. Systemic approaches to innovation strategies have been reported in the literature in various forms, ranging from the most classical view of innovation systems to more contemporary concepts, such as innovation ecosystems (ADNER; KAPOOR, 2010; 2016). Based on the study by Moore (1993), who coined the term business ecosystems, taking the construct “ecosystem” to the social sciences, the concepts of innovation ecosystems (IE) were born (ADNER, 2006) and entrepreneurial ecosystems (EE) (ISENBERG, 2010). The first is usually used to explain innovative activities with a wide variety of actors, who cooperate to create value that they would not be able individually (ADNER, 2006). Thus, in IS, the “eco” emphasizes relational dynamics and the resulting creation of value (RITALA; ALMPANOUPOULOU, 2017). In EE, on the other hand, there is a set of elements (leadership, market, customers, culture, etc.) that relate to each other, driving the creation and development of entrepreneurial activity (ISENBERG, 2010). Since then, the use of these terms has grown and criticism has emerged regarding conceptual ambiguity about ecosystem research, due to the variation in the definition of limits and levels of analysis of the phenomena (RITALA; GUSTAFSSON, 2018). Also, the concepts have received criticism for the lack of theoretical consistency and empirical evidence that corroborates the need for a new term (OH et al., 2016; SCARINGELLA; RADZIWON, 2017; GOMES et al., 2018; BOGERS et al 2019). Thus, although the ecosystem approach has gained space in the literature on strategy, innovation, and entrepreneurship, there is no consensus on the definition of the concepts originated from it (GOMES et al., 2018). The diversity of concepts and empirical applications that emerge in this context highlights the theoretical and methodological challenges of the area and also highlights the opportunities for future research. Thus, despite the advances made in recent years (GOMES et al., 2018; BOGERS; SIMS, 2019; SUOMINEN; SEPPÄNEN; DEDEHAYR, 2019; VOLKMER MARTINS et al. 2019; GRANSTRAND; HOLGERSSON, 2020), which contributed to increase the robustness of the concepts, several gaps remain open, mainly regarding the understanding of these phenomena in emerging countries like Brazil. Thus, this theme brings together theoretical and empirical studies that contemplate:
* Theoretical and conceptual advances on IE and EE;
* Orchestration and governance for the creation and development of IE and EE;
* The ecosystem approach to debate radical innovation, new business models, new markets, or emerging industries;
* Public policies and development of best practices in technology parks, incubators and innovation centers;
* Analysis of national, sectoral, and regional innovation systems;
* Actors and members of the IE and EE;
* Research on start-ups and spin-offs;
* Spillovers of knowledge in IE;
* Studies on the levels of analysis and limits of ecosystems
* Social impact of IE and EE.

Doing a lot with little is much frequently employed in entrepreneurship, even more in crises situations (Kuckertz et al., 2020; Nelson and Lima, 2020; Kwong et al., 2019; Tsilika et al., 2020). This implies using bricolage (Baker and Nelson, 2005) and effectuation (Sarasvathy, 2001; Sarasvathy et al., 2020) – also according to Fisher (2012) – this later one occurs if there is also limitation of the risks to an acceptable loss level (Dew et al., 2009; Martina, 2020).

Making digital business is also very common (Zaheer et al., 2019) and tends to be an even more disseminated practice as digital technologies develop and become more accessible (Allen, 2019; Nambisan, 2017). Making the transition for digital operations (e.g. creating your own delivery system using online resources or adhering to iFood or Rappi) or making digital adaptations (e.g. increasing the communication and offer items on internet) is also a solution to improve sales and diminish costs, which are important solutions to face crises (Dwivedi et al., 2020; Kuckertz et al., 2020; Papadopoulos et al., 2020). Against a pandemic crisis (e.g. H1N1, covid-19, etc.), digital options are also useful diminishing physical proximity of people and contagion risks. Using digital technologies facing crises is favored by effectuation and/or bricolage (e.g. Kuckertzet al., 2020) even in conditions of great poverty because they count on cheap and widely available technological means. They support resilience for entrepreneurship and economies.

The focal subjects of this call for papers have their importance and need for research already confirmed by an extensive literature. However, such need is particularly deep in Brazil. In our country, the research in entrepreneurship and innovation is reduced regarding those subjects and need to be expanded and improved.

This call aims at generating an exchange of new knowledge related to the focal subjects producing contributions to improve researches and practices related to overcoming and resilience in crises(Shepherd et al., 2020; Thorgren and Williams, 2020; Trump and Linkov, 2020; Williams et al., 2017; Williams and Shepherd, 2016).

We welcome theoretical and empirical papers besides quantitative, qualitative, and mixed methods studies which can bring international comparisons and perspectives and present any possible configuration by treating only one or several themes of this call.

The following are non-exclusive examples of central subjects of the papers to be received, which should preferably focus on overcoming processes and resilience in entrepreneurship facing crises:

• Digital business and transition
• Bricolage
• Effectuation
• Effectuation and/or bricolage combined to digital resources
• Entrepreneurship facing crises
• Entrepreneurship and digital transformation
• Effectuation for resilience
• Bricolage for resilience
• Digital transition and adaptations to overcome challenges
• Cheap and frugal technological innovations in entrepreneurship

Keywords: Digital entrepreneurship ; Bricolage ; Effectuation ; Crisis ; Resilience

Social innovation is a well-established field in both Europe and North America. This is a (sub) field that forms at the intersection of the socio-technical approach to developing "new social practices" to manage social demands. In the last ten years, institutions that defined technological and social policies such as the OECD and the European Community (via BEPA) have established an institutional framework for the (sub) field's central concept. In developing countries (Global South), which constitute a wide field for this new perspective, using a constructive approach to responses to social demands with a theoretical foundation is still in the consolidation phase. It requires new arrangements of actors (or "practices "when under another lens).
Although there is widespread recognition of social innovation's need, its idea is still complex due to several definitions and lack of a comprehensive theoretical foundation. Then, it can be seen that there is still no clear understanding of how social innovation leads to social change, the conditions that govern its creation, its genesis, dissemination, and acceptance, without clearly distinguishing it from other forms of innovation. Thus, it is considered that this field, still in consolidation in Brazil, has concrete paths for its expansion, being possible different theoretical-empirical discussions. Among the possibilities for expanding the debate, the following stand out:

- Theoretical approaches and understanding of the dimensions of social innovation (Mulgan, Tucker, Ali & Sanders, 2007; Souza, Lessa & Lazaro, 2019);
- Understanding the process of social innovation and institutionalization (Agostini, Silveira & Bossle, 2016);
- Development and social transformations generated through the IS (Haxeltine et al., 2017; Shabunova, Leonidova & Mukhametova, 2019);
- Social innovations from the perspective of consumption practices (Jeager-Erben, Ruckert-John & Schäfer, 2015),
- Development of public policies and the search for Sustainability (Haxeltine et al. 2017; Correia et al., 2018; Davies & Simon, 2013),
- Local Social Innovation - Grassroots Innovation (Martin & Upham, 2016).
- Social technologies (Dagnino, 2014; Costa et al., 2013).
- Social Innovation and Territorial Development Ecosystems (Sgaragli, 2014; Andion et al., 2020).
- Social innovation and the effects of the pandemic (Chui & Ko, 2020; Cattivelli & Rusciano, 2020).

Such approaches result from a comprehensive and integrated understanding of social innovations, including different actors, sectors of society, research areas, and application fields, thus demonstrating that broadening the perspective is crucial for understanding social innovation (Scoppetta, Butzin & Rehfeld, 2014; Ziegler, 2017).
Therefore, the purpose of this theme is to stimulate academic research about theoretical-empirical advances on social innovations, considering their dimensions and practices, as well as the transformations resulting from their development. It seeks to facilitate dialogues with research that explore the local and Brazilian reality and works with a broader, abstract, and theoretical approach. Given the presence of articles with this theme in the last five years in EnANPAD, it is believed that this proposal is relevant to researchers and research groups in the proposed area, as well as new researchers in this process of consolidating the (sub) field.

Rise of developing countries as a center of innovation and their new nomenclature for emerging markets has been a prominent place on the international research agenda on global innovation and R&D strategies. Emerging markets have provided multinationals with dynamic advantages for multinationals to exploit local knowledge and resource supply streams through strategies for managing global innovation. In orthodox approaches to the study of innovation, advanced economies would be at the epicenter of creating and diffusing global innovation to world markets. Current examples of emerging markets show that many of these innovations are pioneering in these markets, either in native companies or local foreign subsidiaries, and then successfully marketed and adopted in advanced markets or their own headquarters. The term “reverse innovation” attempts to express the innovations emanating from developing countries to advanced countries (Von Zedtwitz et al.; 2018), by foreign multinationals that would otherwise be considered a form. advanced product localization. Von Zedtwitz et al. (2018) argue that such market-oriented definitions are incomplete and suggest broadening this concept by defining reverse innovation as any kind of global innovation that is at some point characterized by a reversal of the innovation flow of a market. developing country to an advanced country, provided that this innovation is finally introduced into an advanced country market. These set of typical emerging market innovations can also include those based on cost innovation, resource constrained innovations, pyramid-based innovations, good enough disruptive innovations (Hart and Christensen, 2002; Hang et al., 2010;), trickle-up innovation (Prahalad, 2004) and frugal innovation (Govindarajan and Trimble, 2012) among others. The objective of this theme is to stimulate the empirical and theoretical studies associated with the context of global innovation strategies and typical emerging markets innovation, indicating possible topics for article submission, such as: Innovation and reverse transfer of knowledge between subsidiary and multinational companies; Global and “glocalized” innovation strategies through the dynamic exploitation of resources and the provision of local knowledge sources; Internationalization of startups and digital companies through innovative local product and service solutions; Qualitative or quantitative studies of typical emerging market innovations; Development of low cost, high value offering products, processes and services that are internationalized or marketed to foreign markets; and Blowback innovations: creative and innovative solutions developed and adopted in emerging markets and then replicated in international markets.

Innovation is an area of ??intense research in the academic world in areas that integrate economics, administration, engineering and law, among others. It has attracted increasing attention from companies and governments as an engine of long-term economic and social development.
Research has provided a comprehensive understanding of the phenomenon and one of the fields that has been focused on over the past decades is that of public policy. Namely in the context of innovation and entrepreneurship policies in different contexts, such as nations, states, municipalities or industries in particular.
In Brazil, the last few years have been fruitful for the debate and formulation of public innovation policies. In this context, it is possible to highlight the Constitutional Amendment 15/85, the Multiyear Plans and the National CT&I Strategy (ENCTI) and the so-called “legal framework of innovation” regulated by Decree No. 9,283, of 2018.
This situation demonstrates that a significant number of contributions on innovation and entrepreneurship policies still need to be investigated and debated.
In this sense, with the aim of creating subsidies for innovation and entrepreneurship policy makers at a time when many of them are under review due to their period of validity and the perspectives under construction in the current federal government to leverage economic development and term, this edition will include contributions on the following topics:

1. Innovation and entrepreneurship policies in Brazil and in the world: Advances and setbacks
2. Research on innovation and entrepreneurship policies in Brazil and worldwide
3. Formulation and Implementation of innovation and entrepreneurship in Brazil and in the world: challenges and opportunities
4. Demand-oriented and demand-driven policies and their instruments, such as p. ex. public purchases and tax incentives respectively.
5. Innovation Systems in Brazil and in the world: experiences and results
6. Participation of actors and their interaction in Innovation Systems in Brazil and in the world, as p. ex. the relations between public and private entities as in the case of Universities or Institutes of Technology
7. Sectorial, regional and local innovation systems in Brazil and in the world: Successes and Failures
8. Technological advances in the main industries, such as p. ex. agribusiness and oil & gas or in the face of the emergence of new technologies, such as the Internet of Things (IoT) or Artificial Intelligence (AI);
9. Legal and regulatory aspects of innovation in Brazil and in the world;
10. Technological services infrastructure;
11. Other related topics.

Social networks develop over time based on formal and informal exchanges between actors. Such networks are known to be critical for entrepreneurs and innovation managers to identify new opportunities and organize their networks according to their needs (JOHANNISSON & HUSE, 2000), as they shape the flow of information and trace the bonds through which ideals, knowledge and financial capital flow. Stuart and Sorenson (2005) argue that the position of individuals and firms in networks impacts the opportunities to start new businesses and the limitations they face. Studies on individual-level entrepreneur networks focus on entrepreneurs' own relationships or ties with other individuals or organizations, acting as agents of the firm (ANDERSON & MILLER, 2003; BATJARGAL, 2003; SHANE & CABLE, 2002). In addition, the entrepreneur's initial ties influence the economic decisions of the new venture as result of being immersed in the entrepreneur's social relationships (GRANOVETTER, 1973). In addition, dormant ties can be a source of knowledge and social capital, since when reconnected they are more valuable (Walter et al., 2015), these weak nodes give rise to non-redundant information that enables development and differentiation (GRANOVETTER, 1973), strengthening the generation of innovation opportunities and entrepreneurship. It also highlights the importance of knowledge base generated in developing countries with market failures and institutional weaknesses (GIULIANI, 2013), as is the case of Brazil. In entrepreneurship, issues related to the emergence and development of networks, their governance and impacts on financing and growth of new ventures are also relevant. The present theme proposal seeks to raise the debate on different perspectives of social networks and implications for knowledge flow, entrepreneurship and innovation. This theme is critical to the success of innovative endeavors, which depends on how well actors are able to proactively adapt their networks and deal with the consequences of turnover. Theoretical essays and empirical work on social networks are welcome.

Desde o último quartil do século XX, os países industrializados passaram a fortalecer a base de conhecimento de suas economias, em função do novo paradigma técnico-econômico baseado na difusão das tecnologias de informação e comunicação (HARVEY, 1992). Surge então a noção de “economia baseada no conhecimento”na qual a inovação passa a ser o elemento que proporciona vantagens competitivas às empresas e que se torna objetivo primordial das políticas econômicas dos países (ETZKOWITZ, 2008; PORTER, 1998).
Essa nova economia é organizada em rede e os atores institucionais, como a Universidade (U), as empresas do setor produtivo de bens e serviços (E), o Governo (G) nos seus diferentes níveis, e entidades organizadas da sociedade civil(S), que executam seus papeis natos respectivos de geração e transmissão do conhecimento, produção de bens e serviços (B/S) e regulação da atividade econômica, e também, a partir de múltiplas interações, assumem novos papéis havendo sobreposição, retroalimentação e o surgimento de dinâmicas não-lineares em espaços híbridos e de consenso (ETZKOWITZ; LEYDESDORFF, 2000; CARAYANNIS; BARTH; CAMPBELL, 2014; CARAYANNIS; CAMPBELL 2010).
O produto resultante das relações UEG e UEGS são as abordagens da Triple Helix e Quadruple Helix, que se refletem na emergência de mecanismos e ambientes de inovação, como as incubadoras de empresas, os parques científicos, tecnológicos e de inovação, os hubs de inovação, além dos escritórios de transferência e comercialização de tecnologia, das redes de P&D&I colaborativa, projetos de desenvolvimento econômico regional (arranjos e sistemas produtivos e inovativos locais), distritos de inovação, entre outros (ETZKOWITZ, 2008; AMARAL, 2015).
Estes modelos refletem o processo de geração, apropriação e difusão do conhecimento científico tecnológico e neste aspecto a emergência de modelos como a inovação aberta (Open Innovation) permite a melhor gestão de tais fluxos resultando em impactos positivos para o desenvolvimento tecnológico, econômico e social.
Este track estará recebendo artigos nas temáticas abaixo:
- Ambientes de inovação (ecossistemas; incubadoras de empresas; parques científicos, tecnológicos e de inovação; áreas de inovação; distritos de inovação);
- Mecanismos de proteção do conhecimento e transferência de tecnologia (escritórios de comercialização, núcleos de inovação tecnológica, entre outros);
- Sistemas de inovação (nacional/regional) e as abordagens da Hélice Tripla, Quádrupla e Quíntupla;
- O papel da sociedade civil organizada na inovação e no desenvolvimento econômico;
- Inovação nas empresas: Open Innovation, FORTH, Stage-Gate, e outros modelos de gestão da inovação;
- Arranjos produtivos e desenvolvimento econômico regional com ênfase ou base em inovação;
- O papel da universidade no século XXI, universidade empreendedora, gestão universitária e o papel do gestor acadêmico (academic manager);

Innovation management is a topic that continues to generate debates, either among academics or practitioners. On the one hand, Brazilian and international researchers keep investigating and generating concrete information about how various organizational arrangements can handle innovation. On the other hand, there is a growing interest of managers and practitioners in creating, adopting and developing structures, methods and techniques (Hidalgo & Albors, 2008) to manage innovation within organizations.
Innovation management concerns how organizations deal with creating, diffusing, or adopting innovations. While in a macro perspective innovation processes go through stages of variation, selection and retention (Garud et al., 2013), at the firm level they encompass phases such as design, development, testing, adoption, and diffusion (Van de Ven et al., 2000). Silva et al. (2014, p. 488) identify a plurality of approaches on managing innovation processes and reinforce the idea that they should go beyond the visual representation of a model, i.e. should be grounded on "solid conceptual foundations about their limits, objectives, competitive and strategic context, and organizational parameters".
Although studies on innovation have been characterized by interdisciplinarity, traditionally, the understanding of innovation management used to be strongly related to the management of technological innovation. However, to understand the various nuances of innovation management, classic works (Joe Tidd, 2001; Utterback, 1994) as well as recent ones (Damanpour, 2020; OECD, 2018; Skudienê et al., 2020; J. Tidd & Bessant, 2018) highlight factors ranging from strategic to operational, from incremental to disruptive, from conception to measurement, from closed to open, as well as ways of dealing with innovations ranging from technological to non-technological ones.
Innovation management should not be seen as a simple sequence of stages or cumulative phases (Van de Ven et al., 2000) and becomes more complex in an increasingly competitive scenario and in the midst of the emergence of models, tools and methods to support innovation decision-making processes. This theme proposal seeks to raise the debate on different perspectives and approaches on innovation management and its implications within the organizational environment. Topics of interest include conceptual and empirical approaches (both quantitative and qualitative) on the following topics:
1. Emerging innovation management tools (e.g. bigdata, artificial intelligence, machine learning);
2. Impact of digital tools on integration between agents from an ecosystem perspective;
3. Analysis of application of tools and methods for in-house innovation management and open innovation in private and public agents;
4. Management of innovation in its various typologies, such as technological, managerial and social;
5. Integration of innovation management with strategies and decision-making processes in different organizational arrangements;
6. Application of innovation management tools in small businesses and startups;
7. Comparative studies on innovation management tools for different geographies and sectors.

The circular economy presupposes adherence to business models that make it possible to contribute to the circularity of materials throughout the production chains. The intention is to retain value by retaining resources in supply chains. The shorter the cycle to reintroduce material into the same supply chain or another, the greater the value that is retained. Following this prerogative, the 10Rs illustrate the potential value retention of resources, through the practices of refusal, reduction, reuse / resale, repair, renovation, remanufacturing, reuse with new function / purpose, recycling, energy recovery and re-extraction of resources. For these practices to become viable and possible in organizations, it requires the engagement of different actors, the integration of innovation and the premises of circularity in the organizations' strategy and operations. This demands an organizational culture aligned with the precepts of the circular economy. Demands new non-financial metrics for measuring circularity levels, the need for management guided by ethical, social and environmental values. Thus, the proposed theme is subdivided into different topics, detailed below:
Background to the circular economy. Circular economy practices. Transition from the linear production model to the circular model. Barriers to operationalize the circular economy. Circular business models. Circular commercial alternatives, for example, rent, leasing, process virtualization, shared savings. The social dimension in the circular economy. Reformulation of products and supply chains for the circular economy. Modularization and cascading. Reuse of products, components and materials. Circular economy and communication with the market. Sustainable cities and circular economy. Performance indicators and evaluation in circular economy. Industrial ecosystems and circularity of resources. Institutional changes towards the circular economy. Eco-design. Reduction. Reuse. Recycling. Reclassification. Renewal (renewable energies). Public policies towards the circular economy. Manufacturing cost and circular economy. Circular business models. Competencies for the circular economy. Leadership for the circular economy. Disruptive innovation and circular economy. Modeling and simulation for circular economy. Operational research techniques for circular economy. Technological and sustainability transitions for the circular economy. Integration of the circular economy with Industry 4.0. The role of the circular economy in emergency situations. Artificial intelligence and circular economy.

The "Project Management" track includes research and academic work related to the unit of analysis called "project", which can be defined as a temporary effort to create a product, service or unique result, carried out in an organization or in a set of organizations, with deadlines, resources and with a defined scope. Its importance can be highlighted by the need of organizations, public or private, to properly implement their projects to fulfill the strategic objectives that originate to them. Without proper project management, new ideas, processes or products will remain on paper and their benefits will not come true. In this context, opportunities have arisen inside and outside the academy to improve procedures and / or integrate disciplines such as, for example, the application of hybrid methods. From this understanding the following lines of work are proposed: Projects as temporary organizations; Project management methodologies; Tools and techniques of project management; The Project manager; Strategic project management; Maturity in project management; Project programs and portfolios; Performance, benefits and success of projects; International projects; Megaprojects; Governance and organizational structures for projects; Project offices; Lessons learned from projects; Teaching and training in project management; Agile project management methods; Projects in the public sector; Project-based organizations; Cases in projects: cultural projects, social, environmental, humanitarian aid; Historical projects; and Sustainability and project management.

Over the years, operations management has faced new demands that go beyond its traditional perspective on efficiency and productivity. Assuming intra- and inter-organizational aspects, a new viewpoint at the moral behaviour of managers and ethics among members of the supply chain (Beske and Seuring, 2014). The current debate in this context demonstrates greater emphasis of studies on environmental concerns; however social issues raise as the greatest challenge for operations management (Yawar and Seuring, 2017).
To minimize the concentration of discussions in North American and European countries (Gold and Schleper, 2017), the debate is opened towards developing countries, especially in the context of Latin America, where there are several aspects that should be considered in the quest for sustainability (Fritz and Silva, 2018). For these authors, sustainable development goals (SDG) can be considered, which would lead, for example, to more poverty reduction studies (SDG # 1) and more sustainable production and consumption (SDG # 12).
Alongside the need to advance towards business models that produce lower socioenvironmental impact, society calls for transparency – i.e. allowing consumers and other stakeholders to understand the firm’s list of suppliers, provenance of raw materials, and data regarding socioenvironmental impact (Marshall et al., 2016). Recent studies show that in order develop sustainable and transparent business models, it becomes critical to embrace voices from diverse stakeholders that are part of the broader supply network (Marques, 2019).
Additionally, it is also important to consider aspects that have emerged as barriers to sustainability in operations and supply chains, in different contexts, such as, for example, corruption, which can be a challenge to be overcome (Silvestre et al., 2018) or even a practice to circumvent the adoption of sustainability standards (Silvestre, Viana and Monteiro, 2020).
From this view, among the possible topics involved are:
- relationship between CSR, SDGs and business performance
- models and processes aiming transparency in supply networks
- methods and criteria for socio-environmental selection and monitoring of suppliers
- social technologies and new technologies such as blockchain and their impact to supply chain management
- human and labour rights in the operations management (e.g., Modern Slavery)

The term global value chains (GVC) is an approach that analyses the phenomenon of the slicing of production processes between actors located in several countries. COVID-19 pandemic showed the fragility of these chains and also that there is much to be done, also in research. At the same time, the world faces challenges in the climate theme, which, if they existed before, have become more urgent. Not only the media (The Economist, 2020), but also the state of the art of research (Oldekop et al. 2020) deal with the themes. Although the two issues do not seem directly connected at first sight, pandemic and the environment, in addition to having causes and processes that go beyond national borders, their consequences have similar characteristics. Therefore, the challenges are global, involving several countries and the consequences occur not only in the field of development, but also of the organizations, directly and indirectly involved. In addition to these two themes, pandemic and the environment, it must be considered that digitization has accelerated not only in various economic sectors, but also in many daily activities (Oldekop et al., 2020). Digitization has also supported the containment of the pandemic in Asian countries (Huang, Sun, & Sui, 2020).
In GVCs and Global Production Networks (GPNs), production occurs through a sequence of activities, each of which adds some value to what was added by the previous links. The sequence of these activities is described and analyzed from conception to production and end use, as well as examining the relationship between work performed, technologies, standards, regulations, products, processes and markets of each specific location, in order to understand how they interrelate and influence, as well as the structure and dynamics of the chains (Gereffi & Fernandez-Stark, 2016).
In this way, GVC gives particular attention to the question of how and why the distribution of activities between regions and countries allows each link to take over the value generated along the chain. It focuses on the fact that firms and productive groupings in emerging countries often engage in activities that allow them take over much less value than the counterparts from the developed world (Kaplinsky & Morris, 2016). It asks why this is so and seeks solutions to this phenomenon, which negatively affects the possibility of economic, social and environmental upgrading of these countries. It is, therefore, an approach that is of particular interest to emerging and / or developing countries, as is the case in Brazil. In recent literature, there are examples of upgrading of companies from emerging countries, showing that this is not an impossible task (Peng, Zeng, Collinson, Wu, & Wu, 2020). The question that can be asked and investigated is whether and how the events mentioned, pandemic, environment and digitalization, mean a new window of opportunity for companies in emerging countries. In this sense, the GVC-GPN themes can be associated with global strategies, in order to synergize common concepts and mechanisms, especially regarding upgrading and strategic evolution (Pananond, Gereffi, & Torbensen, 2020).

Supply Chain Management (SCM) has progressed from integrating business processes between different links in the chain (Cooper, Lambert & Pagh, 1997) to a systemic and strategic vision, implemented by two or more companies, aiming at increasing customer satisfaction, reducing costs and obtaining competitive advantage for the chain as a whole (Mentzer et al., 2001). SCM encompasses different processes, such as Purchasing and Supplier Management, Demand Management, Order Fulfillment, Customer Relations and Logistics, which must be aligned in terms of strategies, processes and metrics with the functional areas of Marketing, Operations and Production (Mentzer et al, 2008, Christopher & Ryals, 2014). In this way, SCM assumes information sharing and integrated planning between demand and supply, covering Supplies, Operation and Distribution to deliver greater value to the end customer (Christopher & Ryals 2014; Tate et al, 2015).
For Min, Zacharia and Smith (2019), key elements of the original proposal for SCM remain relevant and contemporary: its strategic nature, the creation of value for the client, the systemic and strategic vision of organizations and intra and interorganizational collaboration. However, it is important that SCM studies assess the adaptation of this management to market trends and new technologies (Christopher & Ryals, 2014; Min et al, 2019), in addition to people, environmental, social / ethical issues and risks and resilience (Wieland et al, 2016).
Therefore, this track seeks to attract articles on the following topics:
• Purchases in public and private organizations: responsible and sustainable purchases, aspects related to ethics and compliance, use of technologies, risk and resilience related to supply, public purchases (Mogre, Lindgreen & Hingley, 2017), required skills (Bals, Schulze, Kellyc & Steke, 2019) and focus on the supplier's perspective;
• Sales and Operations Planning (S&OP): necessary architecture (Christopher & Ryals 2014), challenges and interventions in the process to leverage implementation (Jonsson & Holmström, 2016) and the role of the context (industry, organizational aspects, complexity, intra and interorganizational interfaces) (Kristensen & Jonsson, 2018) for effective collaborative planning;
• Logistics: new forms of chain configurations, use of technologies to optimize chains, platforms and digital solutions to improve accuracy in inventory and warehouse management, in addition to transportation (Min et al, 2019);
• Distribution: adaptation and review of processes to include new distribution channels, including electronic channels, last mile delivery, multichannel and omnichannel (Hübner, Kuhn & Wollenburg, 2016; Ishfaq et al., 2016; Hübner, Wollenburg & Holzapfel, 2016);
• Reverse logistics: structuring reverse logistics to meet environmental policies, electronic channel and increase the competitiveness of companies;
• Information technologies (IT) and their contributions to an end-to-end perspective in the supply chain: challenges and impacts of using IT to increase connection and synchronization in supply chains: efficiency, responsiveness (Kittipanya-Ngam & Tan, 2020), visibility and traceability; the diffusion of Industry 4.0 in various links of the chain (Tziantopoulos, Tsolakis, Vlachos, & Tsironis, 2019) and its role in disseminating information to different stakeholders (Kamble, Gunasekaran & Gawankar, 2020).

The changes caused by the global and accelerated spread of Covid-19 have amplified the attention of academics, government officials, civil society, and professionals (in several areas) to the risks of disruptions in operations and supply chains as the consequences that they can have generated. This theme is on the agenda of calls for research in several academic journals, in the political debates, in the tensions of companies negotiations, in executive meetings on the future of management practices, in the race of distribution channels for digitalization of offering products or services to buyers or end consumers.
In this theme, we intend to stimulate studies looking at these multidimensions (i. e., social systems, supply chains, organizations, and individuals) by considering that risks generally do not occur in isolation because, in large proportions, they generate numerous cascading effects.
Although to know the sources of risks, their consequences and mitigation strategies are becoming relevant (Juttner, 2003; Diabat et al., 2012; Heckmann et al., 2015; Fan and Stevenson, 2018). It is assumed that there is no possibility of mitigating all sources of risks that affect society, businesses, and relationships that exist in it. That is a low probability that risks can happen more frequently, and their impacts are already felt at higher costs when they affect multiple regions or globally as now (WEF, 2006; 2020). Risk management and resilience in organizations and supply chains are others point of transformation. Risk and resilience management in organizations and supply chains are transformation points and are no longer considered fashionable or emerging issues. Therefore, risk and resilience were consolidated as necessary, and this need can be confirmed by the large number of publications made in the last decade (IJOPM, 2019; JOM, 2020; OMR, 2020) or even with a dedicated look at this theme (IJSCOR, 2014; JSCM, 2020).
Resource-based theory (Cheng and Lu, 2017), institutional theory (Tukamuhabwa and Stevenson, 2017), resource dependency theory (Bode et al., 2011), dynamic capabilities approach (Chowdhury and Quaddus, 2017, Altay et al., 2018), among others, can be used for risk analysis and resilience in operations and supply chains. So, it is essential to understand how management theories can be applied and expanded, aiming to mitigate risk impacts and increase resilience in supply chains, making them more sustainable and competitive.
Therefore, possible topics for article submission may focus on:
Selecting, evaluating, and developing the relationship between suppliers and buyers for sustainability and resilience.
Analytical and behavioral models for decision making in resilient chains.
Sustainability and social capital management operations for organizations and resilient chains.
Learning and innovation in the supply chain for sustainability and resilience.
Planning, logistics (materials, information, and human resources), and supply chain design for sustainability and resilience.

The relationship between operations and innovation is often treated in the literature as antagonistic. If, on the one hand, operations can be considered ordinary capabilities that reinforce core competences and core-rigidities subject to “disruptions”, on the other hand, operations form the competitive basis through which new capabilities can be built following a certain technological trajectory. This relationship is especially important in developing countries where the gain in competitiveness is commonly obtained by adopting operational know-how that fosters the strategic process of catching-up and technological upgrading. This track aims to discuss the relationship between operations, innovation and competitiveness.

Issues such as:
• What is the relationship between operations and innovation? What is the direction of this relationship?
• How can operations foster different types of innovation?
• How do companies nurture and build operational capabilities to achieve competitiveness in the 21st century?
• What are the business, regional or market determinants for building operational and competitive capabilities?
• How to innovate through operations and gain competitiveness?
• How companies build on operations capabilities to develop new products and services?
• How do traditional concepts in the field of operations, such as design for manufacturing, design for quality, involvement of suppliers in product design and modularity, fit into this context?
To answer these questions, this section accepts case studies as well as quantitative studies.

Due to the importance of services in economies, researchers from different fields began to turn their attention to services. Since the 1970s, researchers have explored how and why products and services differ in relation to development, production and commercialization processes. Currently, the importance of services goes beyond the traditional service sectors (for example, health, hospitality, transport, etc.), since many industrial companies have invested in the greater offer of services as a way to increase their competitive advantage. Thus, research on services has grown and won specific journals, such as the Journal of Service Research, Journal of Services Management, Journal of Service Theory and Practice, Service Science and The Services Industries Journal. In the field of operations, services have also gained the attention of researchers due to the diverse nuances of the service operation. Added to this, the challenges imposed by new technologies (for example, internet of things, artificial intelligence and robotics) that have been transforming operations into services. Thus, this theme aims to explore topics related to the management of service operations in organizations that operate in Business-to-business (B2B) and Business-to-consumers / users (B2C) markets, whether in the public or private sphere. We also expect to receive contributions related to healthcare, education, logistics, hospitality, infrastructure, to name a few. It is also worth mentioning service operations in industrial companies and information technology.
We encourage submissions of papers related to different themes of service operations management, including:
the role of the customer and the service;
service experience management;
management of quality, productivity and performance in services;
capacity management and queues in service operations;
service ecosystem and service science with applications in operations;
management of partnerships and networks in services;
Co-creation, co-production and participation of customers in service operations;
logistics and supplies for services;
service recovery;
design and innovation in services;
infusion in services, servitization, digital servitization and product-service systems;
digital transformation of operations into services;
new technologies in operations in services and self-service technology;
provision of technological services, such as cloud services, computer security, telecommunications, among others;
knowledge-intensive business services (KIBS) and business-to-business (B2B) operations;
management models adapted to public services;
Covid-19's impacts on service operations;
BPM (Business Process Management) - from management to automation;

In a scenario where, customers are becoming more assertive and demanding improved quality, where the capacity and use of Information Technology has been expanding exponentially and where Industry 4.0 emerges as an important by-product of the growing IT resources and availability, related research with the increase in productivity and quality they become important for the discussion of the strategy and operational management. In this sense, will discuss issues related to manufacturing strategies, where designs and implementation of systems and processes aimed at increasing and improving productivity and quality, start from the use of new technologies. Issues related to the creation of value in production processes from the elimination of waste using tools and techniques of lean manufacturing, as well as control of the variability in production, based on the six sigma methodology, can be examples of search results in productivity be discussed this issue. Issues related to the incorporation of quality in products, processes and services will also be discussed on this topic. In this way, research on the implementation of quality management systems, integrated management systems (e.g. ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001) can be the object of studies of interest for the theme Productivity and Quality. We accept articles on strategy and operations management, as well as on operational excellence principles and techniques. The topic of productive operations management is open to several research paradigms, including modeling, qualitative and quantitative studies. Potential topics for submission may include (but are not limited to): • Operations Strategy • Operations planning, programming and control • Lean, Six Sigma and Industry 4.0 • Technologies to support LSS integration with Industry 4.0 • Drivers, facilitators, barriers and challenges of data-driven quality management systems to optimize processes, focusing on Industry 4.0 • Capture the impact of collaborative relationships in data-based quality management systems. • Leadership styles, organizational culture, information technology and big data infrastructure to achieve Quality 4.0 • Strategies for involving human resources within organizations for digital quality management systems • The role of basic technologies and Industry 4.0 in systems based quality management systems to improve the performance of supply chain management. • Integration of Management Systems (e.g. ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001).

The purpose of the discussion proposed in this theme is to foster contact with current discussions in the field of organizational studies in the dimensions that encompass the individual, group and organization. Faced with such a vast, diverse and fragmented field, several cut-outs are possible. Thus, it is proposed to discuss and reflect on some organizational phenomena and processes that constitute the object of intense academic and professional interest in the current context of changes in the world of work and analyze how individual diversity impacts on the construction of the quality of the relationship between workers and organizations. .
Understanding what is organizational behavior is fundamental for the assessment of the environment and for the adoption of effective people management practices. In addition, it helps to guide the performance of managers and leaders in order to create favorable conditions for better individual and collective performance. Such understanding involves the use of new diagnostic tools, especially those involving more robust methods, such as modeling applied to the study of organizational behavior.
Thus, based on the theme of organizational behavior, some common subthemes are proposed and are still of interest to researchers: a) Motivation and satisfaction; b) Perception and decision making; c) communication; d) Power (authority and autonomy); e) Conflicts at work; f) Social Skills; g) Values ??(personal, professional, at work, organizational); h) Commitment, work bonds, entrenchment; (i) organizational justice; j) Ethics; l) Work teams; m) Organizational Citizenship Behavior; n) Organizational Support; o) Engagement; p) Identity; r) New tools for diagnosing organizational behavior; s) Multilevel Modeling applied to the study of organizational behavior and t) Changes in post-pandemic organizational behavior phenomena by COVID-19.

In the past few decades, organizations have undergone all kinds of changes at an increasingly rapid pace. The uncertainties of the environment are increasing, which leads to different and even contrary interpretations. This increases the complexity in the field of strategy and creates a great challenge for Human Resource Management.

Recently, HR Management has been faced with new challenges due to the advent of the digital economy, internationalization, the green management of human resources and now, the pandemic resulting from COVID 19. Changes in the socio-cultural environment have also affected policies and practices of HR management. The socio-cultural environment creates tensions that can make them ineffective as quickly as changes in technology and market. As a consequence, individual and organizational performance is under intense questioning.

Recently, HR Management has faced new challenges due to the advent of the digital economy, internationalization, green human resource management and now, with the pandemic resulting from COVID 19. Changes in the socio-cultural environment also create tensions in HR Management. Such tensions affect policies and practices and can render them ineffective as quickly as changes in technology and market. As a consequence, individual and organizational performance has been questioned under different aspects.

As changes require organizations to redouble their attention on the external and internal environment, the models, policies and practices of Human Resource Management remains active on the agenda of many researchers and has been the subject of recent publications in the main congresses and scientific journals worldwide. Therefore, the organizations that are able to manage their human resources more efficiently and effectively are those that not only adapt to the changing environments, but also manage to create the conditions for continuous and sustainable growth over time.

Given the context presented, the proposed theme will welcome studies that contemplate:

• Models of Human Resource Management and questions that signal new paths in the field;
• Human Resource Management policies and practices in the face of challenges imposed by Brazilians and worldwide context factors;
• Measurement of Human Resource Management results;
• Strategic Human resource management;
• International Human Resource Management;
• Human Resource Management and its effects on the organizational climate, culture and environmental sustainability;
• The effects of the digital economy on Human Resource Management: models, policies and practices;
• The relationship between organizational changes and Human Resource Management;
• Management of Human Resource with low income and low professional qualification: models, policies and practices that address the basic elements of organizational behavior applicable to this social stratum
• Human Resource Management consultancy.

The purpose is to extend and advance the discussion concerning the resignification of the idea, as well as its challenges and possibilities; the application of competences with the objective of reviewing the origin of the concept and how it is being appropriated by theoretical and empirical studies today, since the topic has a distinctive heterogeneous epistemological nature.
Furthermore, taking into account the classical notions, and extending these to discussions concerning social-emotional competences, as well as adaptive, universal and situational competences; and also further contemporary perspectives and typologies available in the literature (ex: managerial, technical, transversal, emerging), one observes the need to discuss how to go forward in this debate today.
The recurring challenge of proposing a more collective, complex discussion, one that is less tangible, is also a challenge. Thus, the relevance of this proposal is to build a discussion on how researchers are disseminating and/or changing the understanding and application of the idea of competencies in organizations.
The perspective of management by competences is also the focus of this topic, leading to studies that include a general view or, at least, one of the stages of management by competencies (ex: competences diagnosis, development and supply; evaluation of performance by competences , reward by competences and competences certification, trails of learning by competences).
Within the perspective of competence development and competency-based learning trails, it includes research that addresses discussions of reframing and practices of organizational learning processes, of teams of individuals, both from the perspective of formal and informal learning, in different contexts. The discussion about the challenges and possibilities of learning strategies that involve the nature of people and their multiple diversities and relationships are also part of the scope of the theme.
Therefore, the prospect is the presentation of studies that consider old and new possibilities, impasses and challenges; the evaluation of the effects of adopting competencies and learning, or management by competences, in the public and private sectors and in Third Sector organizations as a whole; considering the relations of strategical, collective and individual aspects.
We shall also consider investigations that contemplate the multilevel perspective of competences; competences in face of change (digital transformation, innovation, all arising during the COVID 19 pandemic); variables that influence the perception/expression of competences; comparative studies on the adoption of management by competences in different organizations; models of maturity of management by competences; developments in the practice associated to the model of management by competences, different perspectives learning. Research with different methodological approaches may also be considered as a contribution to the discussion on the topic (mixed approaches, transversal/longitudinal approaches).

The discussion about health at work and in organizations is increasingly intensifying as a necessary and important demand, and the Academy appears at the forefront to expose, assist and intervene in the development of healthier and more positive practices that improve the quality of life in the most different spaces. In this perspective, the promotion of health, support and protection of workers and the quality of life at work can assist in the well-being. In this way, this thematic axis proposes to open and continue discussions that deal with the theme. Since the health-disease process related to the work is complex and changes historically, through technological, social, economic and cultural changes. In addition to being a topic that has been studied in Human Resources Management and Labor Relations, many organizations still tend to naturalize and trivialize the elements that affect workers' health and safety, not treating the harmful aspect of the effects for the individual. In this way, we invite empirical or theoretical works, from different epistemological and methodological approaches, which seek to foster and advance knowledge about these phenomena beyond the existence of these practices in organizations that include, but are not limited to:
1. Health and safety at work
2. Illness at work
3. Accidents, recklessness, negligence and malpractice at work
4. Precariousness, conditions and work organization
5. Epidemiology and people management policies and practices
6. Organizational support related to health
7. Policies, Strategies and Interventions in Organizations
8. Work and health management
9. Quality of life at work
10. Health and Quality of life at work in times of pandemic


Keywords: Health in organizations ; Illness at work ; Quality of life at work

The management of people in the public sector in the context of reform can be understood as the definition of policies and guidelines in relation to human capital to increase the efficiency of civil servants and, consequently, of the public agency itself (MARCONI, 2005). When recovering the history of the formation of People Management in the public sector in the context of the formation of the Brazilian public administration, it is clear that the legacy of the formation of the State, which comes from the Portuguese colonization, was reflected in people management policies in the Brazil, considering from the process of allocating public servants, to the retention actions.
According to Longo (2007), as important as legal changes are, organizational restructuring and technological modernization are not enough to significantly change the functioning of public organizations. Thus, when realizing that investing in people working in the public sector is a process of results in the medium and long term, not always with visibility for society, many government officials have chosen in the course of history not to do so. According to Gaetani (1998), despite the reformist discourse claiming professionalization of public management, with changes in the recruitment and selection system, in job and salary policies, training and development, promotion and benefits, in the format of public tenders, etc., the concern paramount has always been to reduce payroll and downsizing.
The public service currently lives with both extremes in people management. In the same organization it is possible to find outdated processes and also modern people management practices. Araújo Júnior and Martins (2014) point out that in Brazil, for example, management by competences was consolidated as one of the models to be followed by the public administration, from Decree No. 5,707 of 2006. This aspect can be justified by the discontinuity of policies of people management in public administration and difficulties in structuring management systems. Therefore, the presence of various management models and traces of outdated models, may still exist in institutions today, when considering that the implementation of public administration models is not usually consolidated. (MATIAS-PEREIRA, 2007)
Skorková (2016) points out that managerial functions can be similar and generic between the public and private sectors, however the conditions in these two environments are quite different. In addition, even greater challenges are posed for the management of people in the public sector, when observing the context of the area, political instability, the turnover of top managers and the mutual existence of “patrimonialist”, bureaucratic, managerial and networked models. Discussing policies and practices and debating how public organizations have been organizing their people management is essential to contribute to society and to the daily practices and challenges that the area has been facing.

The work is directly related to the construction of identity in its various levels of analysis, configuring itself as a source of pleasure and suffering for individuals, depending on the way they perceive and deal with it in their daily lives. Phenomena such as intensification, precariousness and individualization, which are increasing in various types of productive activities, have generated various impacts on workers, outlining other labor relations, both inside and outside the country. In Brazil, changes in labor and social security legislation and other legal apparatuses have also materialized in workers' loss of rights. Thus, work is a central element in people's lives, experienced in different ways from countless references. Unsurprisingly, the world of work is increasingly diverse in composition. The heterogeneity of the workforce presents broad fields of research for work, human behavior and people management, including studies that relate and intersect the age and/or generational factor with other constructs in social relations at work. A generation can be understood as a group that shares - beyond the period of birth and of near ages - significant historical, political and social events in their existence that can be associated with human development and the existence of some benchmarks. The literature points out that individuals of different age groups tend to behave in peculiar ways, demarcating different ways to enter, stay and/or leave the world of work, reflecting particularities in the behavior of young people, adults and the elderly in the workplace. Just as youths are diverse, the experiences of older people in retirement also mark experiences that need to be further investigated, understood and managed. Taking into account also other intersectionalities - such as gender, skin color, sexual orientation, religious orientation, aesthetic orientation - such particularities tend to increase and constitute complicating factors from the social point of view and thus management. Such issues certainly demand a more active role of organizations and people management, in the sense of greater participation and accountability regarding the challenges understood in the processes of insertion and exit from the labor market.
Therefore, this theme seeks to stimulate debates, research development and knowledge deepening regarding the age diversity of the workforce and multiple generations in the work environment, as well as discussions that relate such themes with:
• Ageism and demographic, behavioral and social aspects;
• Daily life of young workers, adult workers and the elderly;
• Generations and power in organizations;
• Generations, trajectories and careers;
• Generations and people management policies and practices;
• Insertion and longevity in the labor market;
• Youth and professionalization;
• Generations and public policies;
• Young Apprentice Program;
• Active aging in organizations;
• Generations, cyberculture and cyberspace;
• Ageism and unemployment;
• Age stigmas, stereotypes, prejudice, discrimination and marginality.
Therefore, researches focusing on such groups, individually or comparatively, in the most different shades of the world of work, as well as with the most diverse epistemological and methodological contributions, are welcome.

Keywords: Generations and work. ; Ageism in organizations. ; Etherism and work. ; Youths and work. ; Aging and work relations.

Undoubtedly, Brazilian society reproduces discriminatory traits and structures from the colonial-slavery period. Such social problems are perceived daily in the racial and class prejudices and discrimination, in the impoverishment, in the unequal distribution of opportunities (Fernandes, 2008). Once inserted in such a social reality, organizations and their corporate environment reinforced these problems, repeating stereotypes which have been harmful to the insertion and rise of minority groups (Paim & Pereira, 2018).
The coexistence of multiple identities in the social and organizational environments imposes challenges for the management and the understanding of the processes that involve diversity. We often observe critical ideologies of difference and feelings that culminate in the attribution of "cultural difference" or "functional" that exclude certain groups, depending on their gender, race, ethnicity, skin color, mental illness, culture, religion, age, aesthetics, disabilities (physical, mental, sensory, psychosocial, intellectual), affective-sexual orientations, country or region of origin, social class, profession or the hierarchical position in organizations. This exclusion is often manifested in acts of explicit or symbolic violence that cause suffering to these victims.
Driven by different perspectives, including decolonial and aphrodiasporic (Bernardino-Costa et al., 2018; Mignolo, 2020), academia has resisted through the recognition of voices, bodies and narratives of the growing and diverse population of historical victims that constitute alternative knowledge, economy and politics.
For this reason, the objective of this WG is to promote the debate about all forms of inequalities within labor relations and public policies for the different dimensions of diversity, as well as in a global political economy, and also for the recognition and analysis of “traces” left by the slavery period in management practices and organizations. We aim to address how political and practical measures can be designed in order to promote the inclusion of minority groups and marginalized voices, so that we work for social justice and the well-being of all individuals and communities. In this sense, we believe it is essential to recognize the darker side of the dynamics of exclusion/inclusion and to discuss in what extent public policies and existing initiatives for diversity management are aligned with the agendas of social movements (feminists, blacks, LGBTQIA +, anti-ableism, for instance) as well as to analyze how these public policies and initiatives of diversity management impact organizations and the functioning of collectives (affinity groups and employee resource groups).
In this WG, we accept empirical and theoretical works regardless their ontological premise and epistemological perspective. We are looking forward to receiving works that discuss how to deal with the challenges regarding the inclusion of minorities and minority groups, how to value diversity and how to promote social and/or organizational justice as well as works that identify new and emerging identities, demands and desires within the organizational and social contemporary context in the face of the challenges imposed by the (re)configuration of society caused by a strong neoconservative wave.
We believe that from this effort it will be possible to encourage the participation of academics, managers and professionals in a collective effort to discuss existing models and create new solutions, aligned with the reality of Brazilian society and focused on creating sustainable development.

The proposal is to discuss the current situation of studies around the achievements and challenges experienced by women and men when equating career and personal life. Given that the gender issue makes light of this discussion, the working group also intends to widen the look at the intersectionalities that touch the woman and call the discussion the concepts of femininity and masculinity.

Therefore, the interest of this proposal is to bring together researches and practices, of a transdisciplinary nature, that problematize issues related to the work and the personal life of women as well as of men. It is hoped to bring together researchers that address these discussions with a focus on gender issues, taking into account old and current impasses and challenges.

Understanding gender as a two-part link allows us to reflect on the social puzzle that constructs positions and roles in which men as a universal category are seen with certain behaviors (Carmo, 2010) and women with behaviors generally opposed to men (Medrado & Lyra, 2008).

When speaking of gender, it is common to refer to the feminine and the masculine. Unfortunately we have learned to act according to the prescriptions of each sex and we still find stereotyped patterns in which the feminine relates only to women and the masculine only to men.

We can not forget the fluidity that exists when we talk about gender. For example, Souza et al (1985, p. 283) point out that "masculine has much more feminine content in the present day than in the past." It is in this context that we consider that the gender marker constitutes a category and also a relational term. What it is to be a man depends on what it is to be a woman and vice versa. Changes in females impact what becomes male (Nascimento et al, 2009; Araújo, 2005).

In addition, other proposals that do not address the debate from the gender category but which contribute to discussions related to the labor market and career are also part of this discussion.

Therefore, it is expected that the work will be framed in the following topics:

1. Work and family relationship from the perspective of the couple
2. Career development of women and their intersectionalities (black women, lesbians, in a vulnerable situation)
3. The phenomenon opt out.
4. Dual career.
5. Profile of women in the labor market
6. Maternity and Paternity in Building and Career Development
7. Women and aging in the labor market
8. Women in science
9. Immigrant Women
10. Barriers to equality and gender equity
11. Social class, career and woman
12. New brands of the feminine
13. New brands of masculinity

Based on Work, Organizations and Subjectivity, we aim to discuss the work and its articulations with the micro (subject) and macro (social) dynamics. In this sense, work can be understood as something beyond an occupation, that is, as an activity that plays a fundamental role in structuring the subject's identity, subjectivity and health and, at the same time, enable the construction of the social bond and its articulations with the real. In common sense, work is central to our lives and can also be seen as the society moderator because it considers ideological, sociological, psychological, political, legal and economic perspectives, it is important to highlight that work can have a positive or negative impact on people's lives. Likewise, it is necessary to consider that the current experience of working has driven the subject to precarious jobs, challenging the last breaths of the promises of achievement and emancipation through work.
We welcome and encourage conceptual and empirical papers that are interested to dialogue, bringing discussions and contributions that go through these and other possible paths based on the above issue proposed here.
Pleasure and Suffering at work. Labor clinics. Health and mental illness at work: stress, burnout and suicide. Precariousness and violence at work. Moral and sexual harassment. Alcoholism and other drugs. Ways of working and their consequences in being and living. Work, its multiple dimensions and its inseparability with the different spheres of life. Work-family relationship. Affections and Work. Psychological contracts. Power relations and the worker. Control and resistance at work. Dilemmas related to work. Dimensions of subjectivity and work. Methods and methodologies of intervention at work. Psychosocial cartographies of work.

It is undeniable the profound effect of the recent set of socioeconomic, cultural and individual changes on the traditional career model, usually portrayed as linear, stable, upward and full-time (Adamson, Doherty, & Viney, 1998). On the one hand, globalization, technological advances and increasing competitiveness have contributed to reconfigure the nature of work, with the emergence of alternative arrangements, including the gig economy; the increase in unemployment, underemployment and underutilization of labor; and the polarization and precariousness of work (Callanan, Perri, & Tomkowski, 2017). On the other hand, the growing diversity of the workforce, associated with an expanding contextual differentiation process, contributes to the complexification of labor relations, which challenges our understanding of the interrelationships between career, individual, organization and society (Van Maanen, 2020).
The emergence of new career models since the 1990s, with emphasis on protean and boundaryless careers, is directly related to the overvaluation of the agency, at the expense of not recognizing the external conditions that impact professional trajectories (Mayrhofer, Myer, & Steyrer, 2007). Although over the past two decades, some efforts have been made to contemplate dimensions such as gender (Mainiero & Sullivan, 2005), there is a lack of research effort oriented to the theme of the exclusion of minority groups in the access to the most qualified occupations and jobs at the top of the professional hierarchy (Prasad & Prasad, 2007).
In that regard, there is a call for a career perspective that addresses – from a critical and non-homogenizing lens, unrestricted to professional and managerial careers, and intersectional whenever possible – the marginalization of traditional minority groups, associated with aspects such as social class, culture, ethnicity , gender, age, religiosity and sexuality (Pringle, Myers, Elley-Brown, & Reid, 2020).
Therefore, we invite the submission of papers that seek theoretical-empirical advancements in this field of knowledge, including the following research routes:
- Influence of socioeconomic, demographic, cultural, territorial and individual changes on careers.
- Work and career of different social groups.
- Career studies from an intersectional perspective.
- New occupations and ways of working: gig work, uberization and and other types of work.
- Careers in the context of flexible contracts and/or locations.
- Sustainable careers.
- New career formats
- Career transitions.
- International careers.
- Trajectories of occupational or social groups considered marginal or deviant (Becker, 2008).
- The dark side of contemporary careers (Baruch & Vardi, 2016).

Considered a central activity that structures the lives of individuals, work began to acquire different meanings even more in times of intensification of flexibility and outsourcing supported by the discourse of employability and management of one's own career (ROHN; LOPES, 2015). Therefore, the meaning of the work has been, repeatedly, an object of research.

Research on the concept of meaning of work has encompassed a wide range of theoretical and methodological options. It is a central concept in emerging theories such as positive psychology (PRATT; ASHFORTH, 2003). However, the focus is mainly on the work space and the dynamics of its activities, although it is recognized that the meanings of work are connected with different dimensions of the social context.

More recently, the discussion on the topic also encompassed the new formats of work regulation, temporary contracts, flexible hours, reduced working hours and telework (RODRIGUES; BARRICHELLO; MORIN, 2016, RODRIGUES et al. 2017)

Exploring this unprecedented conversation, from different ontologies and epistemologies, between meaning of work, social identities (visible or invisible) and organizational contexts (structures, processes, practices and organizational policies) will contribute to a better understanding and advancement of the discussion not only on the topic in question, but also on the organizational processes of inclusion and exclusion, pleasure and suffering, and, at the limit, quality of life in the work environment and its relations with productivity.

Possible topics for submission:
• Meaning of work and identities: implications for individuals and organizations;
• Theoretical studies that propose expansion of existing discussions and / or connections with other theoretical concepts or constructs;
• Empirical studies focusing on local, regional and intercultural experiences: comparisons between sites, different professional categories or different environments (for example, public versus private) or any other categories of analysis;
• Studies using scales, modeling and other methods that allow assessing, validating and discussing antecedents and developments of the meaning of the work;
• Studies on the theoretical / epistemological foundations of research on the meaning of work in Brazil and abroad;
• Studies contemplating meanings of work and social and economic indicators, such as gender, between generations or socio-economic classes;
• Studies exploring the relation between meanings of work, stigma, morality and ethics;
• Innovative research methods on the meaning of work (challenges, perspectives, trends, multilevel analyzes);
• Meaning management other important constructs in business and organization studies: calling, commitment, engagement, involvement, motivation, well-being and suffering at work, stress, affections and emotions.
• Studies on the meaning of work and the GIG economy: the effects of "uberization" and gamification as a component in the processes of construction and deconstruction of meaning.

This track proposes to discuss work (im)mobility(s) experienced by people and organizations in contemporary society. This scenario is highlighted in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic.
We consider that we live in the era of mobilities (CRESSWELL, 2006; HAAS; CASTLES; MILLER, 2020; ELLIOT; URRY, 2010; FREITAS, 2009; RODRIGUEZ; MEARNS, 2012), although structures and contextual elements produce stratifications, as well as individual attributes limit or expand possibilities of being on the move. On the one hand, technology advances, time and space narrow, transport and communications are accelerated, allowing people and organizations to experience international mobility and cross geographical boundaries for business. On the other hand, global and local power disputes propel people to movements for survival or for work. Both streams promote cultural, economic, social, (re)modulating demographic interactions (BAUMAN, 1999; CHANLAT; DAVEL; DUPUIS, 2013).
The impact of technology on (im)mobilities has also been changing ways of working and elements that make up the life-work relationship. Home office, telework, and other organizational forms that make work relations more flexible have spread (HISLOP; AXTELL, 2007). The bonds are increasingly fluid, involved in the coexistence between geographical immobility and digital mobility, as in the so-called digital nomads (AL-HADI; AL-AUFI, 2019).
In addition, it is necessary to emphasize the work-related social (im)mobility (CRESSWELL; DOROW; ROSEMAN, 2016). We consider that the possibility of social ascension made possible by higher education was observed in the Brazilian labor market, however, the reproduction of inequalities persists due to the differentiation between higher education available for popular access and the ones restricted to elites. In this sense, for those who are not in this last group, there is the decency due to unemployment, flexibility, and precariousness of work that require expressions of resistance and resilience, through new ways of working, creating, and (re)inventing.
While such contexts may be characterized as transformations of the world of work, the global Covid-19 pandemic has uncovered inequalities, facilities, difficulties, and challenges for individuals and organizations. The global health crisis has affected in an unprecedented way the ways of living and working and make us question whether the consequences will be as fleeting as their imperative, whether the choice to keep on the move or immovable will become an indicator of privilege or whether the effects of the pandemic period will leave deep and irreparable marks in the context of work now known.
Theoretical and empirical papers are expected, with different epistemic nuances, which deal with the suggested topics (but not limited to them) related to (i)mobility related to work – with or without direct relation to the Covid-19 pandemic – in one or more perspectives:
Geographic – (Self)Expatriation. Repatriation. Global executives. Academic/cultural/religious mobility. Brain drains. Student exchange programs. Volunteer tourism. Refuge. Internal, economic, and environmental migrants.
Technological – Work/Migration/Digital Nomadism. Telework. Home office invasions: home space x workspace, challenges for paternity, maternity, and families.
Social – Social spaces of circulation. Territories. Expressions of resistance and resilience. Entrepreneurship. Entry/transition in the labor market. Barriers related to class, ethnicity/race, generation, gender, and sexuality. Mobile careers.

The transformations of work establish a direct relationship with organizational changes, challenging the regulation systems and labor relations in the contemporary context. Several analytical lenses make it possible to analyze them, from the polarization between wealth and misery at work to organizational alternatives, such as entrepreneurship, which are inserted in the current discussion of the (re) configurations of the labor market. There are also several challenges, both for the labor relations and the workforce management processes (selection, recruitment, careers, compensation, evaluation, and development). New skills and competencies are required and must be examined to analyze the extent of their impacts. Such issues demand a strategic, critical, and innovative vision of labor relations. It is necessary to examine the changes and permanences that are presented, the new models of management and organization, and the role of labor relations systems in social well-being and the civilizing process. Also relevant is the issue of labor and organization flexibility as a result of the introduction of new technologies, organizational innovations, and restructuring in industry, services, and commerce. These changes, manifested by the Internet of Things (IoT), Artificial Intelligence (AI), Industry 4.0 and new configurations expressed in the movements of uberization, gig economy, and “sharing” economy, bring new challenges to people and professions, putting in check the future of labor and the labor market. There is a need to rethink labor relations systems since more traditional models are no longer able to explain the complex contemporary dynamics, impacted by different phenomena, such as industry 4.0, the advancement of the computerization of HR practices, the movement of flexibility labor legislation in several countries. Approaches in the field of critical theory, such as labor process theory, as well as in the field of sociology of work, can be examined. The various facets of work transformations and their effects on labor relations have demanded that researches go beyond classical studies, such as those on working conditions, collective bargaining between unions and companies, flexibility, and (de) regulation. The classic themes remain current and necessary, but they must coexist with the emerging ones, open to theoretical and empirical, qualitative, and quantitative studies. The future of work will depend on the construction of new labor and union movements and also on the proposal of new institutions for protection and regulation of labor relations at the macro, meso, and micro levels. We invite the academic community to submit articles that address the topics below, although not limited to them:
- Comparative studies on work transformations in different countries;
- Innovations in labor relations and the labor market: entrepreneurship, industry 4.0, IoT, AI, gig economy, startups, and unicorns;
- The future of unionism and collective agreements in new labor organizations;
- Overlaps between digital transformations, people management, and RTs;
- Impacts of labor reforms on labor relations systems in Brazil and other countries.

The study of consumer behavior covers all processes involved when people select, buy, use or have products, services, ideas and experiences to meet their needs and desires. The Consumer Behavior theme is always current, because as consumers, we are constantly exposed to new forms of consumption and we also influence companies' marketing strategies. With the development of new technologies, the diversification of digital channels and platforms, the number of factors that influence consumer decisions has grown substantially. Consequently, the demand for research that analyzes the antecedents and consequences of consumer behavior is enormous. The studies that involve this theme seek to analyze the factors that allow the understanding of consumers' buying behavior and its implications in the formulation of the company's strategy and also of public policies. Research on this topic also seeks to discuss the main perspectives of consumer analysis, involving socio-cultural aspects, individual differences and the stages of the purchasing decision process. Thus, this topic covers theoretical and empirical studies that result from surveys, correlational models and exploratory studies. It also includes studies that explore the individual determinants of consumer behavior. In addition, include, but are not limited to, studies on motivation, personality, attention, perception, search for information, purchase decision process, training and changing attitudes.

Consumer Culture presents discussions aligned with the theoretical perspective of the Consumer Culture Theory (CCT). The focus of Culture and Consumption research is the investigation of the social conditions in which consumption and market resources (eg brands, channels, technologies, among others) directly or indirectly mediate social relations, the experiences of individuals, the symbolic and material cosntruction of social arrangements. Therefore, the theme includes studies or essays that seek to explore consumption - meanings, socio-materiality, influences, practices - from a multidisciplinary approach, articulating areas of knowledge such as Anthropology, Sociology, History, Linguistics and Social Communication. Research examples include investigations that seeks to understand consumption and issues related to gender, aesthetics, regionalities, construction and maintenance of social identity, cultural and social differences, urban tribes, different consumer groups, networks, anti-consumption and resistance. In this type of research, culture is not investigated as a variable or as a homogeneous system of collectively shared meanings, for example, explaining what would be Brazilian culture or the culture of an especific region of the country, such as Rio Grande do Sul, Rio de Janeiro, etc. Research from the theoretical perspective of CCT explores the heterogeneous distribution of meanings and the overlap of different coexisting cultural groups in complex societies.

This theme aims to broaden the interconnection between the marketing field and the notion of the market. Prevalent in the marketing literature discussions until the 1960s, this interconnection has come to the forefront face the contemporary recognition of the role that the market - its production and its dynamics - has in the marketing theorization and practice. Market construction field involves researchers initially connected with social and cultural perspective about consumption, industrial marketing, as well as economic sociology and economic anthropology. The ontological perspective that shapes market studies involves both structuralist conceptions of the market, practice and flat ontologies-such as the Actor-Network Theory. It includes studies or essays that take the 'market' as central element - indifferently of the theoretical and methodological perspectives. It involves studies connected with emerging market description perspectives, such as market constructivist studies, market practice, agency and market modeling, market system dynamic, among others. It involves also market studies from different levels of analysis (macro, meso and micro), notions of aggregate marketing systems, institutions and institutionalization process and the intersectionality involving market and society. Some examples of interest topics for this Working Group include, among others, description of dynamics that shape a specific market, new market building, alternative markets analysis, conflicts and the role of different agents in market constitution, market structure, regulation and institutionalization of markets, marketization process, cultural, sociological, historical and anthropological explanations for the markets.

This research topic receives studies that consider marketing strategies and activities as inputs and marketing performance as the main output (s). Inputs are understood as the entire marketing effort of marketing strategies (product / service, price, place and promotion) and variable outputs of performance / response in consumer mindset levels (brand equity, perceived quality, satisfaction, attitudinal loyalty) , consumer behavioral (acquisition, retention, word of mouth, customer lifetime value, share of wallet), product-market (sales, market share, profitability) and accounting and financial (costs, profits, margins, leverage, return to investor). It also includes studies on concepts, models and theories about relationships between companies, customers and other parties involved in delivering value and generating performance. Also included in this thematic are researches that explore resource allocation, market analysis and international marketing strategy (export / import of products), but that necessarily relate these concepts to market performance metrics. The theme receives works from several methodological inspirations, such as survey research (methods supported by survey), experimental and econometric modeling applied to marketing data and several analytical techniques to understand the impact of marketing at firm, company (or retail), product-brand or consumer. Finally, it may also include systematic literature reviews (bibliometric reviews or meta-analytical studies) whose purpose is to explain the determinants of market performance variables at their different levels. Finally, it includes elements of the management of the marketing mix (products, prices and communication).

The services science track focuses on explaining and driving systematic innovation and service management. Service systems are configurations of co-creating value of people, technology, value propositions connecting internal and external service systems and shared information (Maglio & Spohrer, 2008). This recursive definition of the service system seems necessary, since Service-Dominated Logic (LDS) was identified as an adequate philosophical basis for the development of a service science (Maglio, Vargo, Caswell & Spohrer, 2009; Vargo & Akaka, 2009) and service ecosystems are understood as fractal structures (Wieland, Hartmann, & Vargo, 2017). To break through and overcome conventional marketing thinking, we must interpret 'service' as the application of skills for the benefit of the actors involved in an exchange, and recognize service as the fundamental basis of the exchange (Vargo & Lusch, 2009) and explain how these affect our well-being as individuals, employees, families and communities (Anderson & Ostrom, 2015). The use of a systemic perspective is natural and fruitful as we unravel the complexities inherent in the meaning of value, according to the perspectives of multiple beneficiaries, the processes of co-creation of value and the mechanisms for integrating resources in the ecosystems of services, coordinated by institutions and institutional arrangements (Ostrom, Parasuraman, Bowen, Patrício, Voss, 2015; Vargo and Lusch, 2016). This framework also helps to model a new paradigm for marketing science, with interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary implications. Recent empirical and conceptual studies, mainly based on S-D logic, must be disseminated, discussed and evaluated on their potential to resolve lasting controversies and integrate knowledge from different sources in the field of service science.

Brand Management has taken on special importance today. The value of brands and their addition to products and services, has increasingly stood out as a great generator of results for organizations. On the other hand, due to technological acceleration and virtualization of company-customer relations (whether through chatboots, robots and the use of artificial intelligence), brands have added greater importance as a result of interactions and experiences of consumers, considering the reduction of physical contact , being a strong identifier of a producer's purpose and identity. In this sense, brands linked to technology and big techs have grown in value to the detriment of traditional brands, and due to the exponentiation of growth caused by the network effect, new start ups have managed to occupy perceptual spaces and establish brands in shorter periods of time, suggesting challenges and opportunities for organizations. The relationship between Consumers and Brands (Consumer-Brand Relationships - CBR) is one of the themes of expression in contemporary marketing literature. The consumer-brand relationship can be defined as a logical extension of the brand personality, resembling the relationship between people. It results from an emotional bond resulting from the interactions and experiences of consumers with the brands, developed over time, leading firms to perform various tasks to build and maintain these relationships. In this sense, the consumer-brand relationship can be thought of as a result of the sequential interactive process of relationships between the consumer and a personified brand in a long-term perspective, instead of a simple repurchase pattern based on consumer satisfaction with a product, brand or service. In this relevant and fertile field, this theme was proposed.
In this sense, the proposed track incorporates the phenomena related to the following subthemes: Brands and brand management; Brand value based on the customer, Brand value for the company, Identity, Brand positioning and values, Brand elements; Marketing programs to build brand value; Integrated and digital communication to generate brand value; Branding strategies and brand architectures; Brand social responsibility, brand activism and curative marketing; Perspectives to study the relationship of the brand with the consumer (for example, self-connection with the brands, brand community, brand value / brand value, quality of the brand relationship); Brand relations; Models and variables used to explain and predict relationships between the consumer and the brand (for example, perceived ethics, brand authenticity, brand hypocrisy, value, satisfaction, commitment, trust, commitment and loyalty).

The theme of "Marketing and Society" lies in the field of macromarketing, a field that is part of the noninteractive-non-economic perspective of marketing schools, which emerged from the 1960s onwards. Devotees to this field are dedicated to promoting a marketing systemic approach, to support strategies and policies for social well-being. In this sense, the main purpose of the topic is to discuss the numerous aspects related to the effects of marketing on society, analyzing both the positive aspects and the dysfunctions and problems inherent to this relationship. Therefore, studies that articulate ethics in marketing, sustainable consumption, collaborative consumption, resistance to consumption, consumerism, sustainability in marketing, subjective quality of life and personal well-being and marketing of non-profit organizations stand out. Studies that are based on the proposal of Transformative Consumer Research and Transformative Service Research, in which the figure of vulnerable consumers becomes central, are also welcome, and furthermore lead to the emergence of other issues such as hunger, obesity, food policy, food waste, food consumption and its socio-environmental impacts, citizenship and consumption, modern slavery, refugees, deviant paths of consumption, gender and intersectionality, narratives and stigmatization. Regarding the onto-epistemological choices, the various perspectives, as well as empirical and essayistic works are appropriate for the theme.

Consumption is often considered the dominant form of meaning production and reproduction in our society. As such, consumption opens possibilities for human interactions between people, objects and institutions. The importance of consumption in the investigation of themes related to social relations is undeniable and even inescapable. Given such importance, it is of utmost importance to recognize that if consumption opens doors and proposes relational possibilities, it also limits or even eliminates possibilities depending on which actors are involved in the consumption process. Going further, relations mediated by goods, services and experiences have both emancipatory and enslaving potential. Therefore, to look at consumption phenomena from a critical perspective is to shed light on the less visible side of consumption phenomena, those to which Nason (1989) referred to as unanticipated indirect effects (eg, discrimination, security threats, health, destruction of resources). The critical perspective allows us to account for power relations and domination between different actors in markets that, from a positive point of view, are naturalized, pass as invisible. We use the word "emancipation" to emphasize works that have as object these relations of imbalance, domination, or naturalization, and aim to produce knowledge that somehow leads to the liberation of the consumer of these forms of domain, either by proposing forms of social action that allow this emancipation of the consumer, either by describing them, analyzing them theoretically, or critically pointing their limits. Therefore, the following keywords are welcome on this topic: Critical marketing; Decoloniality and postcolonialism; Consumerism; Gender issues; Consciousness and consumption; Oppression and domination in consumption; Ideologies, consumption and markets; Consumer resistance; Consumption as political action; Consumer pedagogy; Activism; Consumption and identities spoiled and stigmatized. Works in the early stages of development are welcome, since we see the conference sessions as opportunities to aid the development of the text. We also welcome cases that report unwanted effects from the action of market institutions; cases reporting unwanted effects of consumption on people; and works based on theoretical and philosophical considerations about consumer marketing, consumerism, emancipation, and political action, as well as discussions of methods related to critical marketing and consumer inquiry.

The issue of consumer vulnerability has been recurrent in works in the marketing area. There are many factors that can lead an individual to the experience of vulnerability, so it is relevant to understand how consumers deal with this experience, in addition to understanding how marketing activities can affect the consumption decisions of individuals. Based on this knowledge, it is possible to expand the literature on the subject and present implications for public policies. Debt and lack of financial well-being are urgent issues, and understanding the dynamics of access to credit and generating insights to develop strategies that promote the financial well-being of the population becomes important.
In this perspective, the proposed theme expects to receive articles that explore different contexts of consumption that can lead an individual to the experience of vulnerability, as well as the coping strategies developed and used to minimize this experience. Work is also expected to investigate the financial decision-making process, considering both personal (personality traits) and market (credit access policies) aspects. Possible topics include (but are not restricted to):
• Background to financial well-being (objective and subjective variables);
• Financial decision-making process;
• Dimensions of financial well-being;
• How marketing activities can lead an individual to a situation of vulnerability;
• Sociocultural approaches to understand consumer / financial vulnerability;
• Relationship between consumer vulnerability and financial well-being;
• Critical situations that lead an individual to the experience of consumer / financial vulnerability;
• Consumer / financial vulnerability coping strategies;
• Implications for public policies of studies on consumer / financial vulnerability.

This theme covers researches related to public marketing, marketing for higher education and for basic education, nonprofit marketing, green marketing, social marketing, religious marketing, health marketing, political marketing, other types of marketing related to public, educational and nonprofit sector; Topics of interest include services quality, public, educational and nonprofit marketing mix, branding, value co-creation, marketing strategies, relationship, attracting and retaining donors and volunteers, among other issues addressed from a public and/or nonprofit perspective.
The theme of public marketing, educational marketing and non-profit marketing has been gaining space in the marketing literature due to the growing importance of marketing in non-commercial sectors. In particular, social and educational organizations expand their importance to society and, at the same time, competition for resources, such as donors and volunteers, grows. Public marketing, on the other hand, has shown relevance to show society the effectiveness of government actions, which are increasingly demanded by citizens. In this way, researchers can contribute to public, educational and non-profit organizations, given that, generally, the direct import of marketing knowledge for profit for the public, educational and non-profit sectors tends to be inappropriate, requiring the construction of specific marketing knowledge for the public, educational and non-profit sectors. Therefore, this theme seeks to stimulate the interest of Brazilian researchers to investigate public marketing, educational marketing and non-profit marketing, as well as their derivations (health, politics, ecological, among others)

Customer Centricity can be defined as the extent to which an organization is oriented to understand customers and deliver solutions indicated by them, thus implying a form of management oriented to understand what they want, how they want and how the company can organize to better meet those needs, get paid for it and still profit. In this sense, the true essence of the Customer Centricity paradigm lies in the ambidexterity of a company being able to create dual value for both the customer and the company itself.
Academic studies indicate that companies that generate superior results in relation to the average of their sector are oriented towards the market, improving knowledge about their customers and prospects, as well as placing them at the center of their strategy. Most notably, with the development of digital technologies, the concept of Customer Centricity has regained its importance, since this approach is expected to bring 30% or more ROI (return on investment) than the marketing approach that is not centered In the client.
Thus, also considering the need to better understand the journey of companies to become customer-centric, one of the gaps pointed out for the theme is the investigation of the antecedents of a customer-centric structure among companies that adopt this strategic design.
In view of this scientific opportunity, in the field of Marketing, this theme allows the realization of new theoretical and empirical studies, with qualitative and quantitative approaches, intertwining with discussions about user experience, consumption, hyper consumption, design thinking, shopping journey, brand experience, clienting, digital transformation, satisfaction and loyalty, personalization, challenges and consumer demands, omnichannel and superior performance.

This theme includes discussions that aim to explain fashion as a behavior shared by a group in the same relationship of time and space as well as understanding luxury as a social construction not only of what is rare or exclusive but of what is not common or usual . The understanding of these phenomena has an important role both to collaborate with the theory of marketing of fashion and luxury as well as the strategic application for these sectors that due to their characteristics are not served with the theoretical-practical elaborations that are developed in other contexts. To this end, this track includes studies or essays that seek to explore fashion, brands or luxury products and services (extension and extension, national and global strategies, imitations and counterfeits), trend research, market expansion, social networks in the context of luxury and fashion, omnichannel and fashion, innovation and development of products and fashion collections, artification of luxury, digital marketing and e-commerce in the context of fashion and luxury, new concepts in fashion and luxury retail, experience in the consumption of fashion and luxury , usability of fashion and luxury sites, upcycling and textile transformation, from a multidisciplinary approach. All aspects of research methods are encouraged, whether qualitative or quantitative.

The themes ''place marketing'' and ''place branding'' stand out in the international contemporary marketing literature and relate to the management of market positioning based on tangible and intangible attributes and benefits of the brand of the place. This is specifically targeting both external audiences (for example, investors, tourists, expatriates, immigrants, students, researchers, among others) and internal audiences (for example, citizens, residents, government officials, marketing professionals, brand managers, government officials, and others).
We invite empirical studies on the branding of places that advance knowledge in the design of theoretical and methodological frameworks for the production of knowledge through academic inquiries as well as for directing consultancy projects and public policy. The proposed track addresses themes related to applicable classic brand theories on market repositioning or rebranding by differentiating places in the minds of target markets and other stakeholder groups. We welcome particularly manuscripts on the interrelationships between the development and sustainability of the place brand and its economic, social, political, technological, and/or cultural impact. Brand management plans can be analysed based on communicational competence, as communication is a key factor and a crucial prerequisite in place branding (identity, image, or reputation), including two main types: the primary channels (direct interaction via strategies, marketing projects on infrastructure, organizational-administrative structure, and behaviour/perception of stakeholders) and secondary channels (formal such as advertising, public relations, visual identity). Submissions about all understandings of types and scales of places are accepted, public or private, represented, for example, by a city, a region, a country, or its components: quarter, neighbourhood, square, park, university, museum, school, hospital, airport, bus station, shopping mall, public spaces etc.
