"Technologies and health" is characterized as a necessary topic in the area of Information Management (ADI) in which studies and research related to the different environments of use, adoption and appropriation of IT, its characterizing aspects and effects on health will be addressed, as well such as the generation, processing and dissemination of health data. In addition to promoting a space for dialogue in which the transformation of health through the use of ICT is discussed, and can configure the current state of development of information technology in health in Brazil and in the world.
This is a constantly evolving theme, given that technologies, such as Internet-based social platforms, have favored collaboration, sharing and interaction; and are being appropriated in the dimensions of human activity in its most diverse contexts, including in the area of Health, with reflections on the activities, roles and skills of health professionals and their peers, evidencing the increase in the use of IT as a way to reduce the effects of social distancing observed during the Covid-19 Pandemic. It is known that health is not restricted to its professionals and the government, with the user of health services being the main focus of the sector, and, in this context, ICTs allow the offer of digital services that meet the desires and needs of these individuals. Topics such as digital, global health and mobility; clinical informatics; Organization, Management, Evaluation and Social Impact of Health Informatics; Open data and health, brought by the academic community, once understood as an area of knowledge and practice, are considered in organizational health environments, which are influenced by the potential of digital technologies as they provide innovative procedures that expand the reach, the quality and resolvability of the different aspects of health care.

How and why do we decide in a certain way? This is a central question posed by Hammerstein and Stevens (2012) in their decision studies. They claim that our choices are governed by cognitive mechanisms shaped over evolutionary time through the process of natural selection. From signal detection and memory to individual and social learning, evolution has created in us strong preconceptions about how and when we process information, and it is these evolved cognitive building blocks that provide the foundation for our choices. For a specific decision maker, decisions made for the same problem at different times can be different, because their preference is not always constant. Furthermore, when the decision maker is faced with complex situations of choice, the application of multi-criteria methods can be an alternative given the circumstances, because these methods aim at recommending, discussing and adapting or refining the decision-making process until the final choice (PEREIRA et al. ., 2010). In this context, actors are individuals who participate directly or indirectly in the decision process, are co-authors of the maturation of their value judgments. This process points to the identification and valuation of their preferences as learning, interaction, communication with and between decision makers (KEENEY and RAIFFA, 1976). For Simon (1965), the individual's actual behavior fails to achieve objective rationality in at least one of three different aspects: rationality requires complete and anticipated knowledge of the consequences resulting from each choice; The consequences belong to the future, so the decision maker must use his imagination and think; in advance of the possible consequences of each choice; Rationality presupposes a choice between all possible alternative behaviors. However, the actual behavior of individuals only a fraction of all these possible alternatives is taken into account in decision making.

Society, as well as the business world, is undergoing a process of digital transformation (Li, 2018). 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 Industry 4.0 technologies, generating new business models.
Industry 4.0, considered the fourth industrial revolution, is based on the idea of creating smart digital factories, facilitating interconnection and computerization in the traditional industry, making businesses more flexible and responsive to market trends (Lu, 2017). Industry 4.0 technologies (e.g., Internet of Things, big data, cloud computing, analytics) enable organizations to innovatively solve problems and/or seize opportunities through new resource rearrangements and new business models, having been perceived as a source of differentiation in the market. New business models have used digital technologies to gain competitive advantage (Fernandes et al., 2017). Therefore, companies need to improve their performance, investing in digital technologies and developing digital capabilities.
The purpose of this track is to conceptualize, theorize and present empirical evidence of how digital transformation takes place in organizations through the adoption and use of new technologies, as well as the development of organizational capabilities.
The following questions are suggested:
In this context, this topic of Digital Transformation invites authors to submit their articles on the following topics, but not restricted to them:

Knowledge is a relevant intangible asset for 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, in order to meet organizational objectives. At the same time that information technology can facilitate knowledge management, it can also increase the risks of losing the competitive advantage obtained. Organizations need to balance the activities that promote knowledge sharing and protection, in order to maintain their competitiveness. There are several antecedents that can leverage knowledge management in an organization, such as social capital, as well as mediate the relationship of its processes with innovation or organizational performance, such as absorptive capacity. The proposed theme involves the study of knowledge-oriented resources and capabilities at the individual, team, intra-organizational and inter-organizational levels. Papers with different methodological approaches, be they qualitative, quantitative, or mixed, are accepted. In this context, the theme "Knowledge Management: background, processes and results" invites authors to submit papers on the following themes, but not restricted to them:
Knowledge sharing mechanisms
Balance between knowledge sharing and knowledge protection
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
Knowledge Management Results
Knowledge management in micro, small, medium, and large companies
Knowledge management assessment and indicators
Social capital and knowledge management
Knowledge management and innovation
Knowledge management and data science

Project management (PM) has always been present in the area of Information Systems (IS). However, organizations are increasingly projectized and projects continue to have high failure rates, whether in terms of time, budget, quality goals, and customer satisfaction, among others.
In addition, researchers and practitioners are being asked how governance, collaboration, resource outsourcing, and other strategies are conducted in the current IT/IS projects.
In this scenario of new realities, artificial intelligence and data science change the way the team acts and collaborates; projects may involve new approaches to management, such as Agile methodologies; industry 4.0 technologies such as internet of things (IoT) and smart systems; as well as global and decentralized IT/IS.
This theme invites the development of scientific and technological articles, from basic and applied research, which allow maturing the understanding about the IT/IS project management. Papers with different methodological approaches are accepted, either qualitative, quantitative, mixed or Design Science Research. The subject covers the following topics, but is not limited to them:

With global challenges associated with rapid technological advances, organizations must develop the ability to transform the changing environment into strategies for action. In turbulent environments, the pressure to be proactive grows. With structured processes for monitoring the environment, Intelligence enhances the perception of signals and the conversion into insights, feeding planning, and strategic decisions, and strengthening capabilities to compete successfully and grow with results.
Strategic Intelligence depends on people, processes, and technology that, combined, leverage the conversion of information. In digital transformation environments, technology plays an increasing role in capturing and interpreting information. Among them, Artificial Intelligence stands out, assisting the manager in summarizing, analyzing, and interpreting data, especially qualitative data, which has great adherence to Strategic Intelligence, given its ability to represent not only in form but especially in content, the interlocutor with greater reliability. Natural Language Processing (NLP) is the area of Artificial Intelligence that aims to develop tools and techniques for analyzing large volumes of text, and that can contribute with insights from its ability to condense, summarize and explore large amounts of text.
This track proposes to encourage research related to the various types of intelligence, aiming to contribute to the expectation that this approach can support corporate strategy in the early identification of actions. Several Strategic Management and Information Systems literature are associated with Strategic Intelligence: Strategic scanning, Strategic foresight, Anticipatory, Collective, Prospective, Competitive, and Market Intelligence, among others. And under a more technological view: Big Data, Data Science, Data Mining, Artificial Intelligence, etc., which can improve the Intelligence process, opening a new range of possibilities.

The world is undergoing the largest wave of urban growth in history and the number of people living in towns and cities is expected to increase to 5 billion until 2030. It is not easy to manage this growth; therefore, good governance is needed to find a smart way to deal with the density of urban life. At the same time, it is observed that a new era of transformation is emerging in which residents and their surrounding environments are increasingly connected through intelligent technologies or digital technologies. All these changes offer greater likelihood for improved wellbeing and prosperity, while challenges at the complex intersection of technology and society are turning up. This track aims at exploring how society is managing and coping with urban challenges in search for innovative solutions leading to better quality of life and sustainability in cities. It also includes investigations related to smart governance, technologies for resilient cities, citizen co-creation and co-production. Furthermore, it addresses the development in smart cities policy models and technology innovations in the areas of energy, transportation, health, education, public safety, infrastructures, natural environment, and business, community-based infrastructure resilience, urban informatics and governance. Smart grids, sensors, the Internet of Things (IoT), Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Big Data Analytics (infrastructure, transportation, education, governance, environment, health care, safety, security, and energy) as well as smart devices and their novel use in public management are also included in this track.

This theme intends to discuss the characteristics, potentialities, challenges and dilemmas that emerge in the relationship between the State and civil society organizations. In a time of proliferation of governance arrangements across various sectors and levels of government, relations between the State and civil society 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. Practices covered in this theme may consist of, but are not restricted to:
Considering the contemporary context, this theme embraces with particular attention, but not only, papers focused on the following matters:

Public Administration, considered as an operative agent of the State, is required to reorganize itself and develop management models that meet social, political and economic demands and needs. The reformulation and modernization of public administration, in order to rationalize actions and increase the effectiveness of its institutions, responding quickly and competently 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).
Considering these aspects, the relevance and pertinence of the proposition of the theme State, Bureaucracy and Public Management in the scope of the Public Administration Division is justified.
According to Kliksberg (1992, p.45), public administration and its functioning, modernization of the State and administrative reforms are not ahistorical: ?they are part of a global historical process that deeply marked it in its central and which she in turn contributed to modeling. (...) Its visceral historicity determines that many of the problems it presents are not endogenous; are the manifestations, at your level, of structural problems in society as a whole?
Given the above, this theme will host 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 governability; 4) transformations in the configurations, roles and functions assumed by the State; As well as current and emerging issues, there is interest in discussing 5) innovation and entrepreneurship in management

This theme seeks to open space for debates,theoretical and empirical, about democratic experimentalism, based on
participatory action in public administration. It focuses on bottom-up processes based on democratic participation and the
interface between different actors, resources, devices, practices and knowledge in public management. This debate is most
relevant nowadays, especially in view ofthe effects of the COVID-19 pandemic and of crises of liberal democracies around
the world and their effects 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 (Ansell, 2007, 2012; Ansell and Torfing, 2018, Ansell, Sorensen and Torfing, 2020; Bohman, 2012; Fung and Wright, 2003) and in Brazil (Andion, 2020; Andion et al, 2017; Avritzer, 2017; Midlej e Silva, 2019; Milani, 2008; Vaz, 2011). In view ofthis, we propose to discuss the relations between public administration, participation and democracy. In particular, we are interested in understanding the scope and limits of democratic experimentations and its relations with the increase of effectiveness, legitimacy, social justice and innovation (considering its multiple dimensions) in public administration. Also, we want to debate the advances and setbacks of democratic participatory action in political systems, governance and public action in territories, institutions and governmental and non-governmental organizations, especially in the face of the democratic regression we face in Brazil and other countries in Latin America and in the world. Challenges in dynamics of collective and collaborative learning, public inquiry, social control and accountability. Experiences of social innovations, collaborative networks, social innovation ecosystems and their relation to the public sector, public policy and public action. Trajectories in the confrontation, resistance and co-construction of responses to public problems,
from social participation and public governance processes.

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. Particularly in the current context, in which various constraints are allied to changes in the environmental context - notably those arising from the COVID-19 pandemic in public organizations - it is essential to build a research agenda that aims to promote the search for organizational efficiency and quality in the provision of public services to face this challenging scenario.

The theme is intended for work on public service management from the perspective of providing public services in specific sectors: energy, transport, telecommunications, water resources, sanitation, health, education, public security, and citizen service, among others. Modes of provision of public services: direct or delegated provision; privatization, privatization, publicization, deregulation, concession, co-production, and outsourcing. New organizational formats and the provision of public services: social organizations (OSs), Public Interest Civil Society Organization (OSCIPS), Public-Private Partnerships (PPPs), and autonomous social services. Executive agencies and regulatory agencies are main object of research in this topic too.
The theme involves core topics in the management of public organizations and public services. With technological advances, public administration reforms, governments' concerns with results-oriented public management, reflections on organizational models, governance structures, and institutional arrangements that facilitate the delivery of quality public services become indispensable.
Works from different theoretical approaches and methodological approaches, including guidance for the practice of Public Administration, are very welcome.

The theme addresses studies and applications of public policies under a multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary perspective 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 enthusiasm in solving problems. It emphasizes the analysis of cases of state and non-state policies, programs, projects and public actions originating from society organizations under technical-economic, social, environmental, cultural, infrastructure, educational, science, technology and innovation and territorial development biases, between others. It includes theoretical-methodological aspects of techniques and applications of public policies and organizational changes. Other possibilities are in the conception and applicability of public policy based on contradictory, and critical-reflective approaches based on cases. Methodologically, the theme prioritizes case studies and comparative analysis, without discarding other interests. The sections will be carried out primarily by sectorial public policies without prejudice to the notion of intersectoriality when possible.

It aims to discuss the federative pact and intergovernmental relations in Brazil in the face of a political situation of crisis in constitutionally established public policy systems, based on federative coordination. The economic crisis affects the majority of the country's population, especially the most vulnerable population. In addition, unemployment and extreme poverty are currently experienced problems whose main cause is the neglect of the structural design and institutional execution of social policy systems, capable of ensuring a minimum of inclusion and social protection for the most vulnerable while aiming at reduce social and regional inequalities in the country. It should be noted that one of the most important elements that define Brazilian Federalism is the existence of a model of inter-federative cooperation, of public policy systems, which require decentralization and accountability for implementation at the subnational level, accompanied by coordination and transfers of federal resources. The analysis in perspective shows, in the current political context of Brazilian federalism, that the effects do not only refer to the current systems of social policies (health, social assistance and education), but also to the new policy issues that will be necessary for treat the post-pandemic moment. Intergovernmental relations, which were already in a process of disorder and lack of coordination, can accentuate this crisis, given that the current moment requires a coordinating and cooperative role of all federated entities. The theme wants to build a discussion based on works related to federatively coordinated social, sectoral and intersectorial policies (education, health, environment, social assistance, cash transfer, urban policy, infra-structure), experiences of inter-federal cooperation in subnational units (inter federative consortia), public finance and budget decision-making process, executive-legislative relationship, among others.

The theme debates the roles and configuration of Brazilian municipalities that, after 1988, with their new constitutional status, began to enjoy administrative, financial and political autonomy. Municipalities have gone through countless transformations in the last thirty years. Key in this process was the increase in responsibilities, as municipalities became the main sphere of government responsible for the implementation of public policies, especially those of social welfare. The decentralization of policies, responsible for the transfer of responsibilities to the municipal sphere, was not unaffected by the results of local institutional and financial limitations to respond to the assumed burdens. The municipalities, in general, have few state capacities to deal with the expansion of their responsibilities. In this context, it is important to update the debate on the challenges of local governments that require greater professionalization of municipal management, as well as the relevance of instituting social control instruments to qualify government action.The requirements to qualify municipal action have been one of the most difficult obstacles for the implementation of public policies. However, little is known about how municipal administrations are organized. Expanding this knowledge is a first reason for the proposed theme. This situation becomes even more challenging in the context of the demands that will fall on Brazilian municipalitoes in the post-COVID-19 scenario. The municipality that emerges from this crisis will not be the same as it was before the pandemic. State capacities will be tested to implement public policies with fewer resources, to respond to greater demands for public services, to create channels of dialogue with society to deal with the problems generated by the pandemic. Thus, to analyze the perspectives and challenges of the municipalities is a current issue, is important because of the central role they play in the in the provision of public policies.

The challenges of regional development are relevant to the academy due to their effects on local social welfare. Especially as it is a driver of promoting social, economic and local development. However, this development occurs effectively when there is an exchange of social capital between local agents and organizations. The existence of social capital (trust, commitment, local identity, shared culture, collaboration, etc.) stimulates and strengthens the relationship between them. This leads to the creation of local specialties 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. Local potentials of social base are created capable of increasing the legitimation of local knowledge from the creation of regional brands, geographical indications and clusters with greater power of joint competitiveness. Furthermore, an exchange ecosystem is created that stimulates the development of specialized local industries and, consequently, stimulates local entrepreneurship through spill-over and spin-off movements.
Therefore, from the associated thought of the locality, regional development and social capital, it is expected to generate intriguing and important 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 effective contributions to exchanges between local agents and stimulate regional development.
Theories of Social Capital, Social Exchange, Social Criticism, Strategic Relationship, Institutional, Social Structuring, Social Control (or Social Bond), Social Learning, Social Penetration, Embodied Social Presence, Social Identity, Sociomaterialism, Social Networks, Local Culture, Regional Development, and other approaches capable of capturing the social effects of exchanges between agents on regional development are

This sub-theme discusses classic and contemporary topics related to public policy theories, methods, and practices, with a particular interest in the relationship between public policies and social and territorial inequalities. Formed by the interdisciplinarity and the dialectics between theory and practice, the policy field is a knowing-acting area already established in Brazil and internationally. However, critical approaches are still less frequently adopted, especially to understand and tackle social inequalities in their multidimensionality and multi-causality. Following this approach, public policies are understood as part of a contradictory process of definition of public problems and development of public action, that can result both in reproduction and transformation of inequalities. It is thus a dynamic process permeated by nuances and ambiguities. In this context, in this sub-theme, we are looking forward to discussing since more consolidated policy approaches (e.g. policy cycle, federalism and social participation, intergovernmental articulations, etc.) until more contemporary topics in the field (e.g. public policy analysis based on evidence, territorialities, intersectionality, cross-cutting, mainstreaming in public policy, etc). We invite especially investigations of the relationship between public policies and inequalities, including both analyses on the effects of governmental action on the (re)production of social inequalities and discussions on innovations aiming at social change, equality, and inclusion.

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. 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 and problems in implementing strategic actions.

In public administration and in the formulation, implementation and evaluation of public policies, the influence of stakeholders in cooperation and competition efforts is observed. The theme focuses on theoretical and empirical works that use stakeholder theory, stakeholder analysis models and hybrid approaches, combining other theoretical references with origins in administration, political science and sociology, for example. Some questions make up your research agenda: how do stakeholders act in value co-creation processes in public administration? What are the strategies and resources adopted by stakeholders to influence public policy? How do they act in the design of public policies? How do stakeholders deal with institutional pressures? How can public organizations manage the relationship with their stakeholders? How can stakeholders contribute to the development of state capacities? What is the impact of stakeholder influence on public policy performance? How do stakeholders operate in public policy networks? How can stakeholder analysis contribute to studies on social participation and advocacy? How do political specificities in Brazil, such as coalition federalism and presidentialism, interfere in the performance of public policy stakeholders? What are the criticisms and limits to which studies on stakeholders in public administration are subject?

This theme aims at the academic discussion on the theme of public innovation, in its most varied approaches. It is a subject that has been gaining increasing interest, both with academics and practitioners, in Brazil and worldwide. It is understood that innovation has the potential for a more efficient, effective, transparent and democratic public management, with projects, initiatives and structures more capable of generating public value. But there are also several challenges and barriers along this path, as well as potential adverse effects of innovative initiatives.
Among the different approaches to the theme, we can mention the following concepts or subareas of research: innovation in the public sector under a services approach; innovation in public policies; platforms and arenas for co-creating innovative solutions to public problems; public innovation laboratories (i-labs); collaborative innovation networks and processes; public innovation and collaborative governance; government digital transformation; methodologies for innovation; public open innovation; state capacity for innovation; experimentalism and the importance of error in the innovative process; evaluation of innovative processes, services and public policies.
We hope to receive both theoretical essays and empirical studies. The papers may focus on the main theories directly linked to the discussion about innovation as well as using other theoretical currents of the expanded public field.

Public sector organizations have gradually adopted innovation practices and expressions that refer to entrepreneurship, aiming for more efficiency to mitigate public problems and generate social value for the community and its surroundings. Additionally, collaborative efforts and behaviors are observed beyond the public sector, involving individuals and organizations to co-create projects and solutions for the common good or for a specific community. Thus, the theme Entrepreneurship in the Public Sector seeks to bring together researchers and strengthen the promotion of inter(multi)disciplinary research agendas and theoretical and conceptual productions from national studies and from a comparative international perspective, through collaborative and networked actions, which are still mostly diffuse and lack a fruitful locus for debate and progress. It is expected to receive papers with different epistemological and methodological approaches:

Recent studies on social management indicate that its definition seeks to incorporate aspects related to the spaces of citizenship, interorganizational relations, and public administration. The proposal integrates 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 theoretical-methodological intersections and distinctions, as well as the practices between social management, public administration, and development. In a participatory democracy, a closer relationship is expected between the State and society, whose protagonist is no longer the State, which starts to mediate discussions and deliberations with the various actors of civil society. In this aspect and, above all, considering the challenges of the country's current political and social context, it is relevant to propose articles that involve 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 collective public environments: forums, boards, and councils.
The purpose of this theme is to explore academic research that seeks to contribute to theoretical and empirical advances in the interfaces between Social Management and Public Management – with theoretical and conceptual models and practical applications that seek to analyze pragmatic examples. It is believed that this proposal is relevant to researchers and research groups in the area.

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 recent years, on the treadmill of various important ephemeris, as the 200 years of the transfer of the Portuguese court to Rio de Janeiro and the 130 years of the Republic, alongside more perennial initiatives, punctual (but significant) efforts have emerested The renewal of interest in historical studies in the field of public administration. Thus, several recent publications have come to join the vigorous historiographic production that has vicled in the area until the 1980s.
It is true, that we are far from the vigor of the academic production of tests and textbooks of the 1950s, 1960 and 1970. But in 2019, the Republic has completed 130 years and next 2022, Brazil will celebrate 200 years of independence. Certainly, the interest in the subject will grow and raise the appreciation of intellectual production in the field.
By gold side, little has advanced in order to incorporate this historiographic production the main achievements of contemporary historiography. In fact, the majority of recent work that came to contribute to the renewal of the field has contributed to the overcoming of the limitations indicated by the criticism that was addressed to the monumental administrative history of Brazil, initiated by DOSP still in the 1950s.
The rediscovery of the importance of historical knowledge and mutual influence between countries in the field of public administration must come with the renewal of themes, sources and research methods, with the production of dissertations, articles and books discussing the transformations of the State and administration Public public in a historical and comparative perspective. There is much to discuss this process, especially in the current moment of Brazilian life in which all institutions are concerned. As I said Unamuno, we need to know the story to avoid repeating it. Nor as a tragedy nor as a farce.

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.

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.
It is important to stress how the 2030 Agenda for the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) got strengthened and have been directing the actions of Governments, Companies, and Civil Society Organizations (CSOS) around the world. Therefore, the 14th topic of the Public Administration division of Anpad—State, Global Governance and Supranational Organizations: management and public policies in the international arena—, enlist the attention of a distinguished amount of good research papers. That shows both the relevance and the fruitfulness of the topics discussed. Due this encouraging response we believe it is propitious the resubmit the proposal.
The proposal here intends to gather those research works from the grand area of management and organizational studies, but also interdisciplinary, which intends to approach: (i) multi, inter, and supranational organizations; (ii) international cooperation: agenda, management, effectiveness and its implications for public, social and business management at local level; (iii) international 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) Agenda 2030 and private sector participation; (x) South-South Cooperation and Brazilian Cooperation for International Development (Cobradi): management, stakeholders and policies. Other MSF international phenomena’s research works will be gladly welcome.

Since the advent of New Public Management (NPM), research and discussions on how institutions, processes, systems, policies and organizations change, have generated useful insights into ways to improve governance and its post-NPM convergences (Rodhes, 1996 ; Lynn et al, 2000; Almqvist et al, 2013; Fukuyama, 2013; Capano, 2014; Frederickson et al 2015; Grindle, 2017; Tonelli et al, 2017; Peci et al., 2021). From a local perspective, the challenges that arise are about who manages governance and how responsibilities can be assigned among the actors involved; and on the significant issues in terms of accountability (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 field of publics are: (i) How can more administrative entities be managed in the best possible way?” (ii) How can public sector regimes, agencies, programs and activities be organized and managed to achieve public objectives? (iii) how can governments continually improve performance so as to gain the respect of citizens whose lives are affected by their regulatory programs and activities? Challenges like these are faced daily by Brazilian public managers, especially when it comes to managers of subnational entities (Silva Corralo, 2015). It is in this environment that the discussion of public governance and accountability policies emerges, materialized in the form of mechanisms of leadership, openness, co-participation, resilience, strategy and control to assess, direct and monitor municipal public management, with a view to conducting policies public and the provision of 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. 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. It seeks to expand the view that organizational actors are always rational who make efficient decisions. It 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. 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: roles of management accounting in organizations and society; contribution of management accounting practices to the emergence, maintenance and transformation of organizational and social institutions; roles of management accounting in the development of new organizational and institutional forms, public and private; 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; 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.

The concept of sustainability has experienced a growing interest in accounting for several decades, leading to the emergence of the field of accounting for sustainability. Sustainability accounting is about tracking, monitoring, aggregating, and reporting environmental, social, economic and governance information about reducing unsustainability issues or contributing to sustainable development.
Corporate unsustainability comes with various types of risks for various stakeholders. Corporate social and environmental impacts can create reputational and financial damage risks to the company, which can result in serious consequences for various stakeholders such as employees, suppliers, or lenders.
Relating corporate activities to the sustainable development goals of the United Nations (UN) provides stakeholders with a framework that allows them to assess the selection of relevant social and environmental topics.
This theme covers research that addresses Corporate Social Responsibility; Public Policies and Sustainability; Sustainable Development Goals; Accounting Information and Circular Economy; Environmental, Social and Governance Aspects (ESG); Social and Environmental Controllership; Integrated Reporting and Sustainability Reporting; Business-Third Sector Partnerships; Business Ethics; other related topics.

Discussions on the theme intend to cast a broad look at accounting in its social, cultural, and political context, covering historical perspectives and future-oriented utopian visions, focusing on Latin America and the Caribbean. The history and political and social contexts and the culture and power relations within/around organizations have been little explored in the accounting literature, perhaps due to influential factors in the shaping, interpreting, and constructing accounting phenomena. Contemplate interdisciplinary, plural, and diversified perspectives that challenge the conventional wisdom about financial and non-financial practices and give visuality to alternative voices and contributions to a transformative praxis. Embrace research that perceives accounting as a mechanism, discourse, structure, or practices that contribute to neoliberalism and sustain invisible forms of control, domination, or violence. Contributions that make the role of accounting for social well-being and dynamics of deepening/combating inequalities, challenging traditional economic and development models, are expected. We invite researchers to submit contemporary studies related to management, public, environmental, auditing, financial markets, accounting frameworks, regulations, governance and accountability, teaching, education, and accounting research. We will provide an interface between developments in critical management studies in new practices, knowledge, and forms of accountability and counter-accounting. It also aims to receive various theoretical, onto-epistemic, and philosophical traditions related to alternative, critical and interpretive paradigms, with qualitative and quantitative research methodologies and approaches. The theme has a plural committee ensuring diversity to construct, organize, and disseminate the theme, actively participating in the coordination/mediation of sessions and panels, and accommodating any personal contingency that needs to be embraced.

There are several points of intersection between Controllership and Innovation Management, especially with regard to their contribution to the survival and adaptability of businesses with a view to the development of the firm.
This theme welcomes research that study a traditional approach to controllership (whether from a strategic, tactical or operational perspective), such as:
Recognizing that some control artifacts from controllership 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) and an unbalanced use of some of these can inhibit creativity, organizational learning and therefore innovation. Therefore, seeking to expand knowledge about these theoretical and empirical relationships of controllership and innovation management, this theme encourages research that seeks to understand:
This theme also welcomes research that investigates management practices in companies that adopt new business model standards, especially technology-based companies (EBT), such as Startups and Fintech.

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.
It is necessary to examine their performance 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:

Accounting has as one of its main objectives to provide useful information about the entities to its various users, since part is directed to the external public. As the size and complexity of business activities grow, the information needs of managers and other users of Accounting become increasingly different; in which the latter need an increasing demand for accounting information so that they can judge the manager and the company performance, as well as to monitor the contracts preparation and execution.
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 by academic and professional environment. The concept of what would be 'quality of accounting information' is related to the consensus of its users, observing the market institutional and organizational characteristics, taking into account the economic, social, cultural, and even temporal aspects.
The topic of Accounting Information Quality covers several topics, such as (but not limited to):

Studies related to governance and auditing in organizations, as a risk mitigation mechanism from a financial accounting perspective, cover topics such as auditing (internal and/or external), compliance, fiscal council, board of directors, audit committee, internal control from the perspective of financial accounting, fraud and related topics. About the topics presented, the area encourages studies that understand the relationship between good Corporate Governance practices and the different internal and external agents of the organization, to mitigate problems of internal controls and fraud. It also encourages studies that discuss new regulations in auditing and their implications. Behavioral aspects of the internal and external auditor and their effects on the audit and judgment process are also targeted. The internal and external audit process and its relationship to technology. Studies related to financial fraud and fraudsters.

The Financial Accounting topic cover research related recognition, measurement, and disclosure of financial reporting for the external users (such as lenders investors, and regulators). Include between topics, but not exclusively, studies about: recognition, measurement, and disclosure of assets/liabilities, income and gains, expenses and losses; credit risk models based in accounting numbers; economics implications of disclosure; studies on derivatives and financial instruments; regulation impact, including adoption and change of International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS); financial accounting of cross-listed companies; value relevance of non-GAAP metrics for information users; measurement of cryptoassets; implications of Blockchain in Financial Accounting.
The changes occurred in environment business has, for on the one hand, proportionate an evolution of regulatory and governance environment of companies. On the other hand, this environment has become the process recognition, measurement, and disclosure more complex. Additionally, has emerged in the last decades a concern with a greater approximation between research and professional practice. In this sense, the Financial Accounting theme justify as space to discussion working papers theoretical and/or empirical on the topics related and that they have potential of contribution and implication for the field, for professionals, regulators, and other stakeholders.

How tax research covers three actors: the taxpayer, the state and corporations. This theme includes opportunities for research with knowledge transfer to the resolution of social problems, tax management of corporations and public administration.
ROLE OF THE TAXPAYER AND PUBLIC ADMINISTRATION: The economic and legal literature establishes functions: allocated and distributive of resources in the economy; based on fundamental principles such as equity, neutrality and simplicity. Studies between taxation, society and management, taxpayer behavior and public administration performance in the area include tax, but not limited: Compliance and Taxpayer Compliance (Taxpayer Compliance), Tax Morals (Tax), Tax (Tax Evasion), Tax Difference (Tax), Tax Compliance (Tax Compliance), Tax Enforcement Policies (Tax Monitoring and Enforcement Tax), Subsidies and tax benefits, Taxation on Income and Taxes on Value Added: Efficiency and evasion.
TAX AND TAX MANAGEMENT OF CORPORATIONS:
Many topics in accounting intersect with the function of corporate taxes. For example, transfer pricing, which companies use for performance evaluation purposes, can have a significant effect on corporate income taxes. The goal is to attract rigorous and innovative research on the interface between taxation and management. We prioritize the understanding of management practices, distortions created by existing tax rules or that prescribe changes in the practice of management and/ or corporate taxation. Studies that include taxes and how they affect corporate decisions contribute to public policy discussions. Studies include, but are not limited to: Taxes and accounting. Tax process in financial accounting practices; Accounting and tax fraud; Taxpayer behavior; Tax arrangements on the value of the firm; Tax planning practices and corporate governance, public policies of tax benefits.

Cities, as a junction of physical spatial structures, rules and rights, actors, networks and knowledge, cultures and differences, design and technologies, have presented themselves in an increasingly fruitful way in the field of Organizational Studies, expanding the solid interdisciplinary academic production on urban space. In the scope of this proposal, and continuing the theme of interest of the previous years, we highlight some aspects associated to the relation between City and Organizational Studies: the historical perspective, which places the intricacies of the reflection on time in the construction of urban spaces of history and memory; the economic perspective, in which management and creativity are highlighted as central aspects; the perspective of the margins that shelters multiple bundles associated to knowledges and existences produced at the margins of the hegemonic; and, finally, the processes related to the organization of educative territories in the construction of educating and inclusive cities. We invite researchers to submit empirical and/or theoretical-conceptual articles on this topic of interest from different epistemological and methodological positions that have Cities and Organizational Studies as their axis in the following themes and topics, not exhaustive of the theme:

This theme aims to discuss social inequalities produced in the world of work and in organizations, as well as the privileges of groups considered hegemonic, considering mainly the following categories of oppression and exploitation: race and ethnicity, gender, sexuality, and social class. We favor studies that start from an intersectional perspective, considering not only how differences constitute inequalities, but also how they are articulated at work and in organizations, generating mechanisms of exclusion, discrimination, and privileges. Such discussions have gained academic and political prominence, given the growing concern with the construction of a work environment, management, and democratic and inclusive organizations. We emphasize the interest in researches that evidence power relations and dynamics, emphasizing the political dimension of differences in ideological, socio-historical, and cultural terms. The vision of work adopted includes discussions related to the world of productive and reproductive work, organizations, management, and public and private administration. In the same sense, the concept of the organization includes public and private organizations, non-governmental organizations, associations, social movements, among other multiple organizational dimensions of social life. We invite studies that address how social inequalities have been constructed and reproduced at work, focusing on both historically constituted and subordinate groups (women, Black people, indigenous people, LGBT, people with disabilities, etc.), and those who occupy privileged places (masculinities, whiteness, etc.). This debate includes analyzes of inequalities in the labor market at the national and/or international level; the role of social movements and organizational experiences on how differences and inequalities are experienced at work, as well as on management practices aimed at confronting this scenario. We also highlight the interest in works on various epistemological, theoretical, and methodological perspectives, such as decolonial and Afro-centered debates, incursions into new research agendas, or other categories that mark differences not explained in this proposal.

The theme explores the political, economic, and psychosocial relationships between subjects, organizations, and societies from a historical-temporal perspective. We invite works investigating management and organizations from any epistemological or ontological paradigms. We understand organizations more broadly, encompassing companies, but also social movements, everyday life in work, family, or educational organizations.
We highlight the experience of people and organizations in time and the representations of subjects about history, including their life history. We also expect manuscripts using biographical methods or life history in their approaches. It is about the record of personal and collective memories, experiences, and trajectories rescued for the transformation, emancipation, and visibility of collectivities and subjects.
We welcome works revisiting classics of Brazilian social thought and structuring themes of the country's reality. Also, works investigating concepts dear to history or memory. Additionally, we invite psychosociological theories dealing with biographies, history, and life history, among other aspects.
We welcome studies that:
- Analyze how historical sources and archives contribute to understanding organizational phenomena and their articulation with social and political aspects;
- Stimulate debates on historical research in management and organizational studies;
- Discuss the uses of the past in organizational studies and investigate how organizations create and manage their collections and documental archives, building meanings from disputes between official memories and silenced memories;
- Are based on sources such as public, private, and/or business archives, period newspapers; films; documentaries;
- Use the theoretical-methodological approaches of Life History and/or Oral History, in which the following stand out: the centrality of the subject and their lived experience, the importance of orality, the valuation of individual and social memory for the understanding of organizations, work, and society;
- Restore the relationships

The theme is aimed at a theoretical and methodological deepening that contributes to the understanding of the relationship between organizations and subjectivity situated at the intersection between culture/tradition, language and social change. We start from the ontological assumption that human reality is socially constructed and conditioned by practice, especially that mediated by linguistic interaction. This implies adopting the epistemological point of view of interpretive, historical and dialogical theoretical matrices, from which the adoption of qualitative methods based on hermeneutics and criticism stems. In this sense, it is necessary to highlight the broad notion of language, seen from the perspective of the philosophy of language and where the communicative aspect of the socio-linguistic ontology stands out. For this reason, an approach very close to the current of research called “Communication Constitutions Organization” is assumed.
Having established the onto-epistemological premises of the topic of interest, space is opened for works sensitive to contemporary social issues under three prisms: i) the perspective of change and emancipation; ii) the presupposition of language as an articulator of the social and of the historical moment, whether in the construction of domination processes or in the ideation of possibilities for overcoming them; and iii) administrative and organizational practice as a rhetorical practice.
Another important point for this theme are the social issues called 'grand challenges' or 'wicked problems', recognizing the need to involve the scientific-academic field of administration and organizations in the construction of possible ways of overcoming and articulating social change. Some themes that can be related to this point are the issue of fake News, the articulation/organization of civil society through digital media mechanisms, the creation of departments and organizations specialized in discourse for the emancipation of minorities and the fight against different forms intolerance, among other issues.

Technological innovations, as tools of neoliberalism, have produced a new economic and social order based on covert practices of extracting, predicting and selling data. This data exploration allows the maximization of the organizations profit and potentializes the expropriation of rights and the capture of human experiences, resulting in a discourse of technological neutral solutionism, indispensable for the growth and productivity of organizations. This technological rationality has allowed the reconfiguration of labor relations and the disarticulation of workers, as well as the control of actions and power struggles through service applications, social media and algorithmic management.
In this sense, this phenomenon presents as a side effect: the accentuation of the (re)production of inequality, exclusion and social discrimination. Problematizing the ethics of digital technologies, unveiling their predispositions to (re)produce privileges and their commitments to maintain hegemonic logics, becomes a necessary agenda that contributes to the discussion of discrimination by gender, race, among other important issues denounced in social relationships.
The call intends to bring together plural approaches and methods and aims to instigate the development of research on the digitalized world and organizational studies, focusing on power asymmetries between users, workers, digital platforms, such as the role of the State in mediating and controlling these relations.
For this, six main themes are proposed:
1) Surveillance capitalism, data colonialism and algorithmic mediation;
2) Digitized work, surveillance culture and algorithmic management;
3) Digitalization as a tool for inequality, exclusion and discrimination (social, racial, gender positions, among others);
4) Power and techno-resistance;
5) Social Media and identity;
6) The relationship between digitization and atypical contexts, such as the consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic, and its repercussions on and through digital technologies.

Since their genesis, universities are subjected to transformation processes and movements that put their reasons of being in check. Efforts to justify their relevance have required capacity of reconfiguration, which contemplates the preservation of their original responsibilities and suggests new challenges. However, the historiography of the university allows us to state that its transformations were never able to fully satisfy the expectations of the society. Given the centrality of an institution whose commitments go beyond the fields of teaching, research and outreach/extension, the intention of this theme is to encourage the debate about the university, especially the public one. In this sense, it is expected to receive articles on the following topics: higher education as a universal human right; academic autonomy and freedom; ethical and political limits of the university; contemporary university management; forms of protection against the mercantilist, corporatist and denial university; emerging issues about internationalization, rankings and its implications; budgetary limitations and standards of excellence in the production and dissemination of knowledge; responsibilities regarding social inclusion and reduction of inequalities; dysfunctionalities and obsolescence zones; interdisciplinarity; relationship between education and citizenship and the democratization of access allied to the challenges of student retention; responsibilities of technical and administrative staff in university management and in core activities, notably in research and outreach/extension; as well as learning from university architectures and the new institutional arrangements created from REUNI, a Brazilian Federal Program aimed at the restructuring and expansion of the public university. It is expected that the articles favor the understanding of deliberated and/or emerging paths for the network of higher education institutions in times of growing demands, scarcity of resources and uncertainties - enhanced by new social relations, production and communication technologies and post-pandemic health restrictions.

THIAGO CHAGAS SILVA SANTOS:
Historically, the organizational analysis emphasize its idiosyncrasy, from cooperation to conflict, from internal relations to external integration, from the organizational collectivity to the individual. While acknowledging the eminence of those approaches, there is a fruitful literature in organizational analysis that try to understanding how they relate to structural social processes.
That is the case of the economic studies of organization, which involves the neoclassical perspectives (Barney & Hesterly, 1996), and the critical perspectives, such as the French theory of regulation (Boyer, 1990), neocorporatism (Oliveira, 2004), convention theory (Erber, 2011), economic sociology (Smelser & Swedberg, 2005), international political economy (Cohen, 2014), world-system analysis (Hopkins & Wallerstein, 1982), among others. If the neoclassical approach engenders micro-organizational analyses, critical perspectives, on the other hand, converge in two directions: the macro-integration of organizations in the general scope of global capitalism and the macro-management aspects of the mode of production, at the local, national, regional, and international levels.
This proposal aims to bring together works and research results that (i) are rooted in economic and macro-managerial basis of the organization(s), (ii) from critical-reflective perspectives, (iii) considering the integration interfaces between the organization(s) and society. Therefore, the following topics of interest can be listed:
Each of these may be open into specific subthemes. Theoretical papers deepening those themes as well as empirical works, which problematize the perspectives, are welcome.

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 DTR, and, in 2010, in the DOS. 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.

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.

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 them. Furthermore, institutional diversity is strongly influenced by economic agents. Taking these phenomena into account, Economic Sociology is one of the areas that has contributed the most and still has great potential to stimulate new theories 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 many other theories in Organizational Studies, is the concept of socially immersed economic action and its relationship with markets, organizations, and institutions. Therefore, aiming to deepen knowledge in the area of Organizational Studies about the relationship between Markets, Organizations, and Institutions, we emphasize that theoretical and empirical works and essays from various theoretical perspectives, such as Economic Sociology, Sociology, are welcome on this topic of 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 works of both qualitative and quantitative nature.

The COP26 - where the IPCC Report on Climate Change was discussed - raised a red flag of the urgency of sustained cuts in greenhouse gas emissions and the need to act “glocally” in order to, at least, mitigate (and adapt to) the negative effects of the Anthropocene. Some authors have argued that the term “Anthropocene” could be a “Capitalocene” (Moore, 2016) or an “Econocene” (Norgaard, 2013), a “Technocene” (Hornborg, 2015) or even a “Plutocene” (Glikson, 2017), among others, to represent the inequalities embedded in current global capitalism where nature exploitation and greenhouse gas emissions are “justifiable” for the benefit of a few (Ergene et al., 2020). Extinctions, ecocides, disasters, climate and health crises are examples of organizational practices marked by human exceptionalism, bounded individualism, inequality and environmental racism. We also argue that organizations (organizing, organized human action) are great agents of destruction of nature (Banerjee, 2008; Shrivastava, 1994) and little has been done in terms of real effective changes in order to tackle that and the ways businesses have been conducted. The same can be said about theorizing efforts about this (Kallio and Nordberg, 2006; Cunha et al., 2008; Banerjee, 2011; Heikkurinen et al., 2016; Jermier and Forbes, 2016; Ergene et al., 2018). That said, while we are invited to “stay with the trouble” (Haraway, 2016) posed by the Anthropocene, we call for papers that critically reflect upon the role of different actors (humans, non-humans, and multispecies collectives) in climate change; food, water and energy (in)security; alternative, resilience, resistance and (re)existence ways of organizing; environmental conflicts; critical CSR and corporate sustainability theories; as well as papers that encourage the use of non-mainstream methodologies and epistemologies for empowering silenced voices and realities in society, especially from the South.

Júlia Moretto Amâncio: (Programa de Pós Graduação em Administração Pública / UFLA - Universidade Federal de Lavras)This thematic proposal aims to contribute to Organizational Studies by demystifying the concept of “work" as restricted to the so-called “productive” sphere. 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. 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 thematical proposal, in this sense, aims to promote and discuss academic papers with themes such as the romanticization of motherhood, 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.

Caio Coelho: (Mestr e Dout em Admin de Empresas / FGV/EAESP - Fundação Getulio Vargas - Escola de Administração de Empresas de São Paulo)The political-social role played by organizations has gained attention from authors in organizational studies with the themes of entrepreneurship (Battilan, Leca, & Boxenbaum, 2009), leadership (Yuan & Woodman, 2010) and human rights (Barros, 2018). Some studies have already researched 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 environmental crimes and disasters (Pereira, Barros & Rezende, 2020). 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). While disclosing their social actions, organizations hide irresponsible and even illegal actions such as corruption, corporate crimes, environmental crimes and discrimination based on gender, race and age (Costa & Borin, 2018). In this theme, papers with different perspectives of analysis are welcome, as well as different ontological, epistemological, methodological and theoretical approaches that discuss the political-social function of organizations. Research may include, but is not limited to, the following topics: -The role of organizations in promoting or violating human rights; -Political activism and non-market strategies (electoral-party relations); -Political activism with society (discursive constructions of the corporate image and dissemination of discourses on diversity); -Business transparency towards society in cases of scandals; -CSR as neoliberal discourse and other critical perspectives; -Alternative theoretical, epistemological and methodological approaches to analyze the political and social function of organizations; -Involvement of organizations in historical political turning points and moments; -Organizations facing sustainability, the environment and society; -Reflections on corporate irresponsibility events; -Encouraging critical thinking about CSR and CPA.

This theme aims to promote studies on the developing researchers and professionals in Administration and Accounting thorough an integrated approach to knowledge, involving epistêmê (scientific knowledge), technical knowledge based on téchnê (knowing how to do) and that resulting from phronesis (knowing how to deliberate in contexts how and when to act). A trilogy that privileges the unity of knowledge, inherent to action and decision, implying prudence and learning through reflection and direct experience.
However, epistemic knowledge has been the basis of higher education, not integrating technical-instrumental knowledge or practical wisdom (phronesis), questioning how it can be learned and improved. The phronetic knowledge was out of the field of reflective and research interest, although present in the reality of the organizational, political, academic, and scientific training environment. Phronesis provides a basis for ethical action and characterizes someone who knows how to act with virtue. Our research problem thus refers to the return of practice to the priority focus of reflection. We highlight some issues:

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).
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 case analysis should be presented exclusively in the teaching notes, through discussion questions that offer “possible answers” supported by references of the literature.
It is important to clarify that the teaching cases differ from the case study research methodology. While the case study research methodology aims to answer problems of scientific research and, therefore, its target audience are researchers, the teaching cases aim to promote learning, portraying a situation that allows the achievement of learning objectives, being the its target audience students and teachers.

The research methods are dynamic and in 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 Quantitative Research Methods. Such research and reflections make it possible to highlight limitations and potentials to generate new perspectives for research in Business and Accounting.
- Discussion about quantitative methods on different empirical and 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 quantitative research methods.
- Empirical implication of the choice of certain methods over others, that is, how empirical strategies choices impact results and, consequently, the conclusion of the studies.
- Building instruments and data collection: structured and unstructured databases, big data, survey, experiments, simulations, scales developments, validation, reliability, etc.
- Data analysis: statistical analysis, econometrics, psychometric, scientometrics, bibliometrics, informetrics, webometrics, patentometric, altmetric, machine learning, data mining, free and commercial softwares, programming, etc.
- Rigor in presenting and discussing results, quantitative research reproducibility, and data management, etc.

The promotion of educational initiatives oriented to sustainability and spirituality has taken place in three instances: institutional, organizational, and didactic-pedagogical. Since the 1970s, conferences, charters, and principles have contributed to the dissemination and institutionalization of sustainability in education. In Brazil, at the end of the 1990s, the theme became mandatory in higher education (Law 9795/1999). In parallel, studies of spirituality in organizations gained strength, legitimized by the MSR (Management, Spirituality and Religion) group at the Academy of Management. In 2015, from Agenda 2030 and the Sustainable Development Goals, Education for Sustainability and Spirituality gained more visibility. The responsibility of Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) is to translate the global goals into studies and learning experiences that foster the formation of responsible and conscious professionals. Initiatives related to curricular and co-curricular experiences, pedagogical experimentation, active and innovative methodologies are fundamental for the development of professionals prepared to deal with the socioeconomic and environmental challenges of society. And as of 2018, the guidelines for Extension in Brazilian Higher Education have also been challenging the management of HEIs. The approach considered here can contribute to meeting this guideline. Thus, the proposed theme is dedicated to exploring experiences of HEIs and professor-researchers in the scope of Education for Sustainability and Spirituality in Business, Accounting and Tourism courses, contemplating, but not limited to:
- Curricular and co-curricular experiences; inter, multi and transdisciplinary.
- Use of active and innovative methodologies.
- Definition, monitoring, and reporting of the HEIs' social impact.
- Teacher training towards Education for Sustainability and Spirituality.
- Challenges and advances in the adaptation of courses in Administration, Accounting and Tourism to regulatory aspects, to the principles of certifiers, accreditors, and associations (PRME; Global Compact, AMBA, EQUIS/EFMD, AACSB)
- Curricularization of extension experiences.

Due to their academic-scientific nature, stricto sensu graduate programs prioritize the development of researchers. Specifically in relation to the areas of Administration and Accounting, graduates usually teach in higher education. Despite this panorama, the discussion remains about the need to contemplate, in the scope of stricto sensu graduate programs, didactic-pedagogical components related to teaching training that are oriented to the business area. It is assumed, then, that the exercise of teaching aimed at training administrators and/or accountants requires reflection and analysis regarding curriculum components, teaching methodologies and assessment practices, among other aspects, in order to provide learning experiences that result in training as provided for in the current National Curriculum Guidelines (DCN) for Administration and Accounting courses.
Specifically with regard to teaching in stricto sensu graduate programs, there is little focus on training for academic guidance, supervision of teaching internships, evaluation of scientific works, university management, among other roles that professors in the area can assume, so that this gap compromises the development of an academic professional identity. Thus, it is observed that the understanding of the role of professors in the business area is fragmented and superficial, bringing as possible consequences the departure from the profession, the lack of responsibility and commitment to teaching, in addition to an inadequate pedagogical practice considering the current circumstances.
In addition to this panorama, is the introduction of new technologies in the teaching-learning process, as well as in business relationships, resulting in the demand for new skills for professional training. Both the student profile and the teacher profile are subject to the challenges and possibilities that the business environment presents, mainly due to new technologies. Factors such as high technical level deepening, interaction with digital environments, application of business reality simulations and creativity, are present in the current DCN of Administration and Accounting courses, so that teaching in the business area

Considering risk as the possibility of an event occurring and negatively affecting the achievement of organizational objectives and opportunity as the possibility that an event occurs and favorably influences the achievement of organizational objectives, COSO (2004, 2017), it is understood that the proposed theme it is associated with the academic division “Strategy in Organizations”, in the sense that the management of corporate risks conspires towards the effective implementation of the organizations' strategy. The approach adopted includes risks from all possible sources that impact organizational management, for example, financial, strategic, operational, political, economic, natural, image, cyber and other risks. In an integrated way, it can be understood that enterprise risk management is connected with strategic management through the assessment of organizational performance measured by the Balanced Scorecard (Kaplan, 2012, 2009). Additionally, it is worth noting that enterprise risk management must go beyond the organization's borders, considering that risks increase as the organization establishes relationships with other agents in the business environment. In this sense, in an increasingly volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous business environment, enterprise 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).

Family business is the most common business configuration around the world. In most countries, family business are the main responsible for employment and wealth generation (Zellweger, 2017). 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 particular type of organizations. Thus, the perspective that family involvement with a firm influences the organizational strategy has driven the field of family business (Chrisman, Chua, & Sharma, 2005; Chua, Chrisman, & Sharma, 1999). The 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, the purpose of this track is receive papers that can contribute to the knowledge advancement about family businesses, considering the idiosyncrasies of families and how their relations with the firms influences the business strategy.
Some themes are suggested, but this is not an exhaustive list:

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 important 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, and competitive capacity of these arrangements, involving public, private, and third sector organizations. In this sense, 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;

Discussions about a strategy addressing competitive advantage have moved towards integrating a vision's theoretical perspectives based on resources, capabilities, and knowledge. It is argued that the fundamental role of strategic management is to adapt, integrate and reconfigure internal and external resources, processes, and organizational routines in order to articulate organizational capabilities that sustain sustainable competitive advantages. In order to execute and develop capabilities, integration processes and a combination of resources are necessary, and their effectiveness is achieved through routines (Eisenhart & Martin, 2000; Zollo & Winter, 2002). The traditional conception of routines applies to relatively stable or predictably changing environments, depending on existing knowledge (Wang & Ahmed, 2007). Complex and unstable environments and dynamic capabilities based on the generation of new knowledge (Ray, Barney & Muhanna, 2004) seem to be the most required. We suggest that researchers consider the principle of equifinality, considering that several factors can help build capabilities, leading to superior business performance. Articles with multilevel models that conceive capabilities in various organizational dimensions are also welcome. We consider it desirable to go beyond a conceptual focus to a configurational focus. This focus implies comparisons of different levels of capabilities and exchanges between their levels and types, conditioned by the company's structure. Let us think about how to approach heterogeneity. This approach implies that capacity development does not present an optimal general model with variations for contingencies but different optimal models for different firms and sectors. The submission proposal for this track opens up the range of article proposals that contribute to the transversality of themes that not only embrace the discussion of resources, capabilities, and routines but also include: (1) technology and innovation management; (2) international business; (3) digital transformation; (4) information systems; (5) complementary assets; (6) human resources management; (7) knowledge management, among other areas.

From the concept of strategizing, making strategy gained new contours, being understood as a socially immersed practice (Vaara & Whittington, 2012). This recognition opened space for a deeper understanding of the phenomenon, for dialogues and intersections of understanding strategy with different perspectives in the field of management, organizations, social theory and language studies (Golsorkhi, Rouleau, Seidl & Vaara, 2015). We start with the contribution of Whittington (1996), who took a comprehensive look at strategy, understanding strategy as a social practice to explain that strategy is a situated achievement, constructed daily by different practitioners (Jarzabkowski, et al., 2016). We understand, therefore, that the strategy is carried out at a micro level, but it also carries all the meanings, models, tools, values, which are shared at the macro level (Golsorkhi et al., 2015). Given this discussion, the phenomenon of strategy can be understood from: (i) different onto-epistemological approaches; (ii) different theories, conceptions, sociological and organizational concepts; (iii) innovative methodological procedures and non-traditional approaches. The thematic-theoretical focus of this perspective allowed the approach of discussions of strategy with contemporary themes and current problems (grand challenges) of organizational action, such as: the phenomenon of opening up the strategy (Seidl, Krogh, & Whittington, 2019); sociomaterial dimension and non-human elements in strategizing (Cooren, 2020); strategizing in hybrid, extreme, pluralistic institutional contexts and/or digital spaces (Hällgren, Rouleau, & De Rond, 2018); strategy construction as a narrative and storytelling process (Rese et al., 2017; Vaara & Fritsch, 2021. Therefore, the situated focus on what people actually do when engaging in strategizing allows this theme to seek to understand phenomena, current/contemporary problems and dialogues (Gond, Cabantous, & Krikorian, 2018; Hughes et al., 2021) bringing them to the field of theoretical-scientific production, contributing to the approximation between practitioners who constitute the field of strategy (Czarniawska, 2015).

The relationship between entrepreneurship and strategy is an interesting intersection for both disciplines. By strategy, we mean actions through which companies create a competitive advantage. By entrepreneurship, we mean nascent companies competing in uncertain markets. 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). Examples of these approaches would be Effectuation (Sarasvathy, 2008) and Bricolage (Baker & Nelson, 2005). Other research lines focus on the entrepreneur's cognitive ability as an essential element for strategy-making. Examples of these approaches are found in the literature on managerial cognition and dynamic capabilities (Helfat & Peteraf, 2015). In this way, there is an opportunity to explore the benefits of possible balance between these two research lines 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). Based on the above, we consider some themes for this line:

The proposed theme is subdivided into three major axes:
Concepts and practices related to the new business models that seek to achieve sustainability Topics covered: strategies related to sustainable social and environmental entrepreneurship; strategic social and environmental projects; B corporations; business with social-environmental impact; business oriented to the base of the pyramid; business models based on shared economy and circular economy; financing strategies and institutional partnerships for social and environmental projects or business. The main concern is to discuss the creation of strategically oriented business for sustainability through the application of innovative business models aligned with TBL and ESG (Environmental Social & Governance).
Emission mitigation strategies, low carbon strategy, and adaptation to the risks of extreme events caused by climate change. Long-term analysis of climate change threats and opportunities for the company and its value chain.Net-zero strategies. Responses and adaptation to environmental uncertainties, in the search for innovation and adaptation of products, processes, business models, and climate resilience. The development of these practices is influenced by internal capabilities and resources, public policies, and managers' cognitive ability to recognize environmental changes.

The theme “Behavioral Strategy" has as a goal to discuss about the field of human actions that influence strategic decisions in organizations (Steensen, 2014). The theme comprehends the presuppositions arising from cognitive, behavioral, social and evolutionary psychology and its diverse applications in process, agents, antecedents and consequences of decisions in organizations. Thus, we propose a research field involving psychology, politics, behavior economics, and applied neuroscience. There is also the possibility of studies focused on team composition, coalitions and conflicts (Augier, Fang, & Rindova, 2018).
We sought studies with contributions that include, but are not limited to, The Upper Echelon Theory, Agency Theory, Corporate Governance, Threat-rigidity, Adaptation, Attention-based View, TCT and Strategic Inertia. Apart from that, we also desired researching the characteristics of decision-makers and performance, strategic decision-making, opportunism, resource adaptation, strategy implementation and crisis behavior.
For this iteration of the theme, a more mature process of contributions is sought (Hoskisson, Hitt, Wan, & Yiu, 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, as well as methods that can bring novelty to research in the area - experiments, neuro/psychological analysis, Machine Learning and Deep Learning, among others.
The proposal of this theme is justified, as it opens a research space for the interaction between these theoretical bases, levels of analysis and compatible methodological approaches (Kline, 2008). It is precisely this expanded view that best reflects the scenario of research on behavioral strategy in the country.

The proposed theme 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; embedded sustainability; sustainable strategic projects; creating sustainable value for multiple organizations' stakeholders through concepts such as Corporate Social Responsibility, Corporate Social Inovation and Shared Value; sustainable 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; sustainability control systems; sustainable balanced scorecard; Triple Bottom Line, and indicators related to the Sustainable Development Objectives (SDG).

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, dispersed or in clusters, in relations of cooperation, competition and co-competition as well as their relationship with performance from creating and capturing value. It is based on theories based on 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; • Interorganizational relationship strategies in regional clusters and global value chains; • 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; • Interorganizational relationship strategies for regional development

Since Chandler's (1962) seminal propositions, the field has sought to refine the concept of strategy and delimit its scope of action and research. In the words of Nag, Hambrick & Chen (2007, p. 944), "The field of strategic management deals whit the major intended and emerging initiatives are taken by general managers on behalf of owners, involving utilization of resources, to enhance the performance of firms in their external environments". The authors argue that strategic management has amorphous boundaries and inherent pluralism, not restricted to dominant theoretical approaches or methodologies. Ronda-Pupo and Guerra Martins (2012) and Burgelman et al. (2018) corroborated this perspective.
In this way, we note emerging themes are considered out of the spotlight, sometimes considered only marginally. In recent years, Strategic Management Society publications and conferences have encouraged research on topics such as "Designing the Future: Strategy, Technology, and Society in the 4th Industrial Revolution, "Strategy in a Disruptive World", "Hits and Misses: Strategic Decisions in an Uncertain World, "Imagination and Inspiration: Creating Strategy Breakthroughs in a Discordant World", among others. It seeks to deepen traditional topics in strategy in terms of their content and context, along with approaches such as competition, leadership and governance, levels of strategy, performance, behavioural strategy, coopetition, entrepreneurship, etc. We also mention community interface issues based on methodological and teaching challenges.
Thus, this theme seeks to include emerging or evolving themes, methodologies and approaches to propose innovative discussions and reflections. Examples could be ecosystems in strategy, interdisciplinary approaches with other social fields such as economics, politics, sociology etc., around the area, regional, local and sectoral studies and institutional perspectives. Also, experiments, longitudinal and panel studies and typically qualitative methods are not traditional, such as ethnography and phenomenology.

Projects within organizations have been growing to achieve their strategic and operational objectives (Papke-Shields and Boyer-Wright, 2017). However, despite the progress of research and project management practices, delivering and supporting strategic challenges and the effect on organizational results is still a challenge (Meredith and Zwikael, 2020).
Research has focused on strategic project management and the strategic role of project managers. Interest comes from accelerated competition, institutional pressures, and rapid technological changes. There is a belief that the management of these projects connects with the business, generating positive possibilities for organizations. This project management implementation should align with top-level business strategy (Patanakul and Shenhar, 2012). In this way, Strategic Project Management is gaining momentum. It combines project methodologies and strategy to drive benefits within organizations and generate competitive advantage. (Brady and Davies, 2004).
Strategic Project Management can also enable the organization to identify and choose projects aligned with strategic objectives through portfolios. It contributes to evaluating, prioritizing, and selecting projects according to the strategy (Martinsuo, and Killen, 2014). Despite these possibilities, we still know little about the effects of projects on the results of organizations. We also need to know better about this choice of portfolios of strategic projects and how it connects with project management.
We propose study submissions that advance this relationship between strategies and projects. Support from various theoretical approaches to strategic management are welcome. As well as other specific approaches to projects that can contribute to these studies, for example: Portfolio; Agile and traditional methodologies; Learning and Knowledge; Innovation; Strategic Value; Organizational culture; Project-Based Organizations; Project-Oriented Organizations.

Nonmarket Strategy (NMS) involve a company's efforts in political, social and legal arrangements to improve its performance. There is a diverse range of strategies that companies use, for example campaign donations; forming coalitions; activism of the CEO, shareholders and stakeholders; boycotts by activist groups; partnerships with non-governmental organizations (NGOs); hiring non-market actors for the board of directors and managing reputational crises. These strategies are evolving and new forms are emerging, given their practical and theoretical importance, more studies are needed focused on their elaboration and implementation in developing countries and their consequences for companies and social well-being. Some emerging discussion questions are:
a) How can developing countries benefit from NMS? Do political and social strategies influence markets and society with the same intensity?
b) What are the private and social risks of carrying out political strategies? Are there control mechanisms so that political strategies do not aim at the personal benefits of managers at the expense of shareholders?
c) What motivators, tactics employed, and private and social gains and risks of CEO and shareholder activism?
d) How do the characteristics of the CEO and board directors shape political and social strategies and their potential for positive or negative externalities?
e) How do partnership relationships between companies and NGOs behave over time? Do companies maintain partnerships or replace them with their own social actions? What are the private and social gains from own and collaborative actions? What are the risks of associations with NGOs?
These issues and other related topics can be studied through conceptual, quantitative, qualitative, or mixed methods approaches, based on a variety of theoretical lenses, such as institutional theory, resource-based view of the enterprise, resource dependence theory, and stakeholder theory.

The company's leverage of resources stems from its ability to promote the best trade-of between the exploitation (exploitation) and exploration (exploration) process (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. If characteristics relating to the two concepts are specified in more detail, it automatically contributes to the understanding of the third concept derived from both, ambidestria (ambidexterity). Gupta, Smith and Shalley (2006), in an analysis of papers 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 organizational survival. For this, it is suggested the presentation of theoretical and empirical works that contemplate the association of the ambidexterity with: social capital, entrepreneurship, absorptive capacity, knowledge transfer, knowledge sharing, organizational learning, networks, decision making, innovation, organizational structure, transaction cost, agency theory, sustainability.

The value creation and co-creation have space in studies on business strategy and management practices in Brazil and around the world in recent years, as well as new applications in specific sectors of the economy and society. Furthermore, it can be considered for its relationship with organizational, financial and non-financial performance. In this sense, relationships between the organization and its stakeholders generate gains that are appropriated by the various stakeholders, creating an environment for creating and distributing value for stakeholders that results in impacts on organizational performance and on the resource management and allocation. From this perspective, studies that measure social and financial performance, highlighting how resources are allocated to different stakeholders and their implications have been a relevant topic in recent decades.
The discussion about value is a central issue in strategic management. Understanding how value is created and distributed by the company helps to explain different organizational results. More specifically, this theme discusses and advances the concept of value and its consequences in the organizational context, as well as the analysis of performance antecedents, performance measurement and the relationship between organizational strategy, value and performance. Topics that address these issues include:
Value creation and co-creation:
- Concept and types of value
- Theories of Value Creation, Co-creation, Distribution and Appropriation
- Value in Use
- Value Destruction
- Value, Competitive Advantage and Competitiveness
- Value in specific contexts.
- Corporate social performance
- Social disclosure
- Corporate financial performance
- Relationship between social and financial performance
- Organizational resources and capabilities and performance
- Organizational competence and performance

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, 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; الربيعي & أحمد, 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.

The strategic management of organizations involves a wide range of stakeholders, which are conceptualized 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 several organizational outcomes has gained prominence in the management literature due to their potential to create competitive advantage (Barney and Harisson, 2020; Boaventura et al., 2020; Harrison, Bosse and Phillips, 2010). To contemplate the theoretical and empirical advances about stakeholder management, the theme addresses studies that seek to understand how stakeholder strategies are formulated and implemented, how management can contribute to the ESG dimensions throughout its stakeholder network and how organizations can improve their performance in the face of diverse and often conflicting stakeholder demands. Research on this topic contemplates different contexts (private companies, public and non-profit organizations) and levels of analysis (individual, organizational and institutional) on the following topics:
- Stakeholder Theory
- Stakeholders Strategy
- Stakeholder Cooperation, Involvement, and Engagement
- Stakeholders and Corporate Social Responsibility
- Stakeholders and Corporate Governance
- Stakeholders and Project Management
- Organizational resources and capabilities for Stakeholder Management
- Microfoundations of Stakeholder Theory
- Stakeholder Networks
- Value for Stakeholders
- Performance for Stakeholders

This topic investigates agency conflicts of all nature, the variety of corporate governance mechanisms, and ownership structures. Agency conflicts include those between the manager and all the investors (i.e., between agent and principal) and those between investors (i.e., between controlling and minority shareholders, and creditors). Corporate governance mechanisms include board structure, corporate C-levels and policies, investor protection rules, corporate disclosure policies, among others. We also claim for studies about external corporate governance mechanisms and the institutional environment that firms operate in. Additionally, we claim for studies about the diversity of ownership structures and the association with corporate performance and other firm characteristics. In sum, we expect the submission of studies that discuss the theory and practice of corporate governance mechanisms, ownership structure, and agency conflicts. We wish that participants can discuss these topics alongside the recent developments in both the national and international literature and the diversity of institutional environments.

This theme includes (but not limited to) studies that consider behavioral biases that go against the full rationality of investors and managers. As has been discussed in the literature, there is a discussion about the efficiency of markets. This discussion has also gained weight due to the emergence of speculative bubbles, as was the case of the Internet bubble that affected the stock market in the United States in the late 1990s. More recently, we had the subprime crisis that also brought to the surface possible doubts about market efficiency and about the information asymmetry problems that could be identified in the world's most developed markets. Next, we set out in more detail the topics that make up this theme. Studies on agent behavior; decision making and cognitive biases; prospect theory; mental accounting; disposition effect; analysis of market efficiency and anomalies; herding; investor humor, attention, and experience; limited access to information; research in neuroscience applied to finance.

In Finance, the experimental method is relatively new, although it has a long tradition in many disciplines such as medicine, biology, and even psychology. Experiments are useful not only in finance but in areas such as accounting and economics, because they allow one variable to be isolated and manipulated at a time, thus depicting its causal effects without relying on complex and imperfect econometric techniques to filter out the effects of omitted and unobserved variables, usual drawbacks in data archives. These problems can be avoided by randomly assigning experiment participants to different treatments. It should also be noted that experiments can be conducted not only in laboratories, but also in the field and even through vignette-based study. The latter being more common in experiments in the accounting area. Examples of topics that make up this theme would be: Individual decision-making under different risk conditions, use of game theory in business decision making, analysis of the role of information transparency in stock trading with different market regulations, among other topics. Finally, a large part of the disciplines of Finance, Accounting, and Economics can be the focus of some experiment that analyzes the cause-and-effect relationships among the variables involved.

The topic “Investments and Asset Pricing” is part of the Finance division. The following sub-topics are included: evaluation of investment projects; evaluation using the real options approach; investments in individual assets and portfolios; asset pricing models (both fixed income and equities); fund performance appraisal; and firm valuation. Studies that consider the Environment, Social and Governance (ESG) approach and its implications to the field of investments and asset pricing are welcome. It is possible to develop, evaluate, test and propose financial asset pricing methodologies for Investment Funds and Market Index Investment Funds. The methodologies should be developed according to the characteristics of each asset or group of assets and 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; among others. Moreover, the topic considers studies related to bank securities (linked to bank debt), federal government bonds (representing the government debt) and Debentures (representing firm debt).

The theme aims to stimulate high level research on Markets and Financial Institutions in Brazil and around 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 risk management is an ongoing process, which consists of developing a set of actions and practices designed to control sources of uncertainty that affect companies objectives, processes and projects, at the strategic, tactical and operational levels. The objective is, through mitigation or elimination strategies, the identification, analysis, evaluation, prioritization, treatment and monitoring of corporate, liquidity, market, operational and legal risk sources. Particularly, the ability to use financial instruments for efficiency and organizational leverage in managing market risk, with the use of financial derivatives, acting as instruments to maximize firm value. Risk management favors decision-making processes aimed at the use of firms informations, concerning their competitors, national and international economic contexts, use of derivatives to protect against unexpected or expected fluctuations in the market price of assets that construct investment portfolios or affect the results of the firms. This theme deals with the identification, assessment and management of corporate risks in a coordinated manner, with practical and empirical applications, minimizing the impact of unexpected and negative events and allowing the maximization of the expected results for the organization. Topics include, but are not limited to: risk identification and analysis; risk management instruments; technical assessment and market risk management; credit and operational; the adequacy to the norms for the mitigation of legal risk; risk management strategies through the use of commodity, term, futures, options and swaps; pricing of derivatives; among others. Works that contribute to the topic of risk management and the use of derivatives are expected, contributing to the literature on the subject, in view of the advances in the studies of finance in Brazil, but also its intersections with international markets and practices.

Data science (DS) has been driven by technological innovations and the massive generation and storage of information. Comprehensively, DS incorporates the use of scientific methods that explore statistical and computational tools traditionally used in Finance (theory and practice). However, DS has recently come to be associated with techniques aimed at artificial intelligence, machine learning (ML), big data, among others. In Finance, ML algorithms are being used in various applications such as portfolio analysis, price prediction, application scoring, credit risk migration, customer churning assessment, fraud identification, evaluation and prevention of human errors or system failures, and propensity to purchase services or products. Academic research findings have suggested that ML models outperform traditional statistical techniques. Top finance journals are also exploring DS bringing theoretical discussions supported by empirical analysis through traditional regressions as well as analysis of the use of techniques that explore big data and ML. It is noteworthy that DS is multidisciplinary and can contribute to the integration of finance with other fields in administration. For example, customer data can be used to define characteristics of financial products and services and identify customers most likely to acquire them are interesting applications for DS. 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. Finally, it is highlighted that artificial intelligence algorithms are being developed and used in practically all areas of knowledge. Therefore, DS has acquired a strategic role in corporate development and competitiveness. In particular, Finance has shown relevant evolutions arising from the exploration of these techniques.

The complexity of financial products, services and systems currently available to society makes individuals need to be able to take full advantage of the opportunities they offer, but it is also essential to understand the risks and uncertainties inherent in different products and services . Therefore, financial education has become an essential skill for full participation in society. In addition, financial education is a critical competence in the 21st century for individuals, and efforts are needed to improve it in order to support economic growth in any world economy. However, despite its importance, several studies around the world show that a large part of the world population still suffers from financial illiteracy and that measures to solve this problem are urgent. Furthermore, both developed and emerging country governments are concerned about the level of financial education of their citizens, mainly due to the difficult economic and financial context and the recognition that the lack of financial education is one of the factors that contributed to ill-informed financial decisions with huge negative repercussions. Furthermore, evidence indicates that financial education is a complex, multifaceted phenomenon that directly and indirectly determines other behavioral factors and that it presents itself differently in different socioeconomic and demographic profiles. In this sense, it is an extremely current topic that has been increasingly researched in different spheres, which makes it an important research topic and one that has been growing over the years.

The value of firms is influenced by their ability to generate innovations, as well as creating effective mechanisms to appropriate their value (Laursen & Salter, 2014). Thus, the protection of intellectual property (IP) assets has become paramount in the current knowledge society (Castells, 2000; Lall, 2003), being the main formal mechanism for the appropriation of innovations (Hall et al., 2014). Thus, companies operating in highly competitive sectors need to build robust portfolios of IP assets (trademarks, patents, industrial designs, and copyrights) to promote competitiveness (Drivas et al., 2016). Furthermore, Brazilian universities have demonstrated an increasing engagement with IP and are currently the national organizations with the highest number of patent applications filed. Given the growing importance of intangibles and a more fragile IP guarantee context in emerging countries such as Brazil (Cuervo-Cazurra & Rui, 2017), the study of this topic is relevant for the national context. It involves research related to IP management and technology transfer, including: technological prospecting in the IP field; monitoring trends in trademark registrations; IP challenges in digital transformation; assessment of impacts of geographical indications (GIs); strategies for the transfer of 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; evaluation of the relationship of STIs with firms; evaluation of public policies to encourage the protection of creations; evaluation of the convenience of protecting and disclosing creations; performance of Technological Innovation Centers (TICs) and technological tools to support IP management and technology transfer. Additionally, this theme also focuses on the analysis of the impact of IP on environments that promote innovation in the academic, business, governmental and social organizations sectors.

The rise of developing countries as centers of innovation and their new nomenclature for emerging markets have played an important role in the research agenda on innovation, R&D and digital transformation strategies. Emerging markets have provided companies with dynamic advantages in order to explore digital changes, supply flows of resources and local knowledge, through strategies oriented towards the management of innovation. Current research in emerging markets show that many innovations have emerged in a pioneering way in those markets, both in native companies and local foreign subsidiaries, to later be successfully adopted and commercialized in advanced markets (Von Zedtwitz et al., 2015; Lee et al., 2020; Ekman et al., 2021). Moreover, recent studies have explored digital transformation in emerging and advanced markets, addressing the impact of digital technologies on organizations (Wamba et al., 2018; Alberti-Alhtaybat et al., 2019; Bertello et al., 2020), the resources and capabilities necessary to successfully explore digital transformation (Ferraris et al., 2018; Muninger et al., 2019), as well as the marketing (consumption) and behavioral (acceptance, adoption and use of technologies) aspects that may influence digital transformation (Yeow et al., 2018; Tabrizi et al., 2019). Furthermore, the main goal of this theme is to bring together empirical and theoretical studies regarding innovation, R&D and digital transformation strategies in emerging market organizations, indicating possible threads for articles submission, such as: global innovation, reverse innovation, trickle-up innovation, frugal innovation, internationalization of digital startups and companies, analytical innovation, digital disruptive innovation, smart digital innovation, digital business models management, interconnectivity in digital platforms and ecosystems, use of digital technologies as a strategy or complementary resources, processes of digital innovation that generate more dynamic value propositions, digital innovative capabilities, digital transformation behavioral aspects, among others.

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

With the advent of the diffusion of technologies associated with the concept of industry 4.0, the socioeconomic and business dynamics face changes (Schwab, 2019). The era of the Fourth Industrial Revolution, the Shared Economy and Artificial Intelligence began to affect companies, supply chains and the entire ecosystem. This new context requires a reformulation of the role of governments and institutions as a whole (Schwab, 2019).
Specifically in business dynamics, regional innovation models and policies face changes with technological trends, resulting in new organizational configurations (Aranguren, Magro, Navarro & Wilson, 2018). The traditional Triple Helix (TH) metaphor formed by the connections among actors in the university-business-government spheres proposed by Etzkowitz and Leydesdorff (1995), has been strengthened and incorporated new models of innovation generation, including society (Quadruple Helix - QH) and the environment (Quintuple Helix – 5H), as important helices in the dynamics of innovation, specifically in this context of technological transformations (Etzkowitz & Leydesdorff, 1995; Carayannis & Campbell, 2009; Carayannis & Campbell, 2011).
The relationships between TH and Quadruple actors reflect the emergence of innovation mechanisms and environments, such as business incubators, science, technology and innovation parks, innovation hubs, regional economic development projects (arrangements and productive systems and innovations), and others.
This track will be receiving articles on the themes below:
- Innovation environments (ecosystems; business incubators; science, technology and innovation parks; innovation areas; innovation districts);
- Mechanisms for protecting knowledge and transferring technology (commercialization offices, technological innovation centers, and others);
- Innovation systems (national/regional) and Triple Helix, Quadruple and Quintuple Helix;
- The role of organized civil society in innovation and economic development;
- The role of the university in the 21st century, entrepreneurial university and university management.

Innovation and entrepreneurship ecosystems have been highlighted among researchers and policymakers for their ability to generate jobs, wealth, and technological development. Innovation ecosystems (ADNER and KAPOOR, 2010) and entrepreneurial ecosystems (ISENBERG, 2010) have historical roots in the discussion about business ecosystems (MOORE, 1993). While innovation ecosystems aim to analyze distributed value creation among autonomous but interdependent actors that cooperate (ADNER, 2006), entrepreneurial ecosystems are dedicated to understanding how a set of elements (infrastructure, science and technology, human capital, business dynamics, and market dynamics) are related to foster entrepreneurial activity (ALVES et al., 2019; ISENBERG, 2010). Since then, the use of these terms has grown and criticism has emerged regarding conceptual ambiguity in ecosystem research, stemming these from the variation in defining boundaries and levels of analysis of phenomena (RITALA; GUSTAFSSON, 2018). Moreover, the concepts have received criticism for lack of theoretical consistency and empirical evidence (GOMES et al., 2018, 2021; OH et al., 2016; SCARINGELLA; RADZIWON, 2017). The diversity of concepts and empirical applications that arise in this field highlights the theoretical and methodological challenges of the area and also underlines the opportunities for future research, especially in emerging countries. Hence, this theme brings together theoretical and empirical studies that contemplate:

In addition to the national scenario, it is necessary to consider that innovation and entrepreneurship have practical and theoretical relevance worldwide (BERRY; BERRY, 2018).
From a practical perspective, innovation is the pillar of the most developed economies in the world, such as Switzerland, in 1st and 5th place, Sweden, in 2nd and 8th place, and the United States, in 3rd and 2nd place, respectively in the rankings innovation and competitiveness (GII, 2019; WEF, 2019); as well as entrepreneurship, with approximately 99% of small businesses in the world (North, 2020) and contribution of these businesses between 20% and 50% of GDP in most countries (GEM, 2020) and about 60% of jobs in the world ( GEM, 2020; SBA, 2019). Even so, both developed and developing economies are being challenged to devise strategies aimed at more effective public policies for innovation and entrepreneurship, in line with the wishes of their citizens (AUDRETSCH; MOOG, 2020).
From an academic perspective, the international literature dealing with public policies on innovation and entrepreneurship still needs to advance on the effectiveness and the context surrounding these policies (BRAUNERHJELM, 2021), as the discourses behind public policies affect the development purposes of each country (PORTER, 1998; AUDRETSCH; MOOG, 2020), as well as on the local character of these policies in the implementation process (ROPER, LOVE, BONNER, 2017).
There are several contributions on innovation and entrepreneurship policies that need to be investigated and debated, to create subsidies for public policy makers at a time when many are under review due to their period of validity and the perspectives of current governments to leverage long-term economic and social development, and for researchers focused on advancing in the discussion that deals with public policies for innovation and entrepreneurship.

Nowadays, entrepreneurship and innovations often happen in situations of unpredictability and resource constraints, also using digital technologies, such as internet. These are situations that tend to demand mainly the use of resources already available, even if they are scarce and inadequate, removing from them the best/greatest desired effect possible. In other words, doing a lot with little and using the frugality approach (Michaelis et al., 2020) have become widespread as ways to be entrepreneurial and innovate, even more in the face of crises, as seen with the Covid-19 pandemic (Epler and Leach, 2021; Kuckertz et al., 2020; Nelson and Lima, 2020; Kwong et al., 2019; Tsilika et al., 2020). Among the frugal ingenuity modes for innovation and entrepreneurship, effectuation (Sarasvathy, 2001; Sarasvathy et al., 2020) and bricolage (Baker and Nelson, 2005) stand out, as described by Michaelis et al. (2020).
Being entrepreneurial and innovative with digital media have been common (Zaheer et al., 2019), particularly to overcome the Covid-19 crisis. An example of this was the digital transition race to online sales with delivery in businesses limited to receive customers during the social distancing to overcome the pandemic. Digital transition or digital adaptations have shown to be a solution to increase sales and decrease costs, which are important solutions to face crises (Dwivedi et al., 2020; Kuckertz et al., 2020; Papadopoulos et al., 2020). These processes gain even more momentum as digital technologies become more accessible (Allen, 2019; Nambisan, 2017), including at the base of the pyramid.
In Brazil, research on the themes proposed on this call is reduced, needing expansion and improvement. Therefore, this call aims to generate the exchange of new knowledge on the themes producing useful contributions to improve research and practice regarding them.

This proposal brings the debate about different perspectives of social networks and the implications of creativity and knowledge flow in entrepreneurship and innovation. This theme is critical to the success of innovative ventures that depend on how well actors are able to proactively adapt their networks and deal with the consequences of turnover. Social networks develop from formal and informal exchanges between actors, being essential for entrepreneurs and managers to identify new opportunities and organize their network according to their needs (JOHANNISSON; HUSE, 2000). The position of individuals and firms in networks impacts the generation of creative ideas (WALSH; KNOTT; COLLINS, 2021) and on the creation of companies (STUART; SORENSON, 2005). Studies on entrepreneurs' networks focus on their relationships or ties with other individuals or organizations, behaving as agents of the firm (ANDERSON; MILLER, 2003; BATJARGAL, 2003; SHANE; CABLE, 2002). Their initial ties influence the economic decisions of the new venture, as a result of being immersed in the entrepreneur's social relations (GRANOVETTER, 1973). Furthermore, dormant ties, when reconnected, can be a valuable source of knowledge and social capital (Walter et al., 2015). These weak nodes originate non-redundant information that allows development and differentiation (GRANOVETTER, 1973), nurture creativity (PUCCIO; CABRA, 2012), and create opportunities for innovation. Thus, this theme brings together theoretical and empirical studies that include, for example:
• Generation of collective knowledge and its flow on the network;
• Sharing creative ideas as a precursor to innovation;
• Influence of networks on entrepreneurship;
• Knowledge flows in industrial clusters;
• Contribution of networks to the promotion of innovation ecosystems;
• Drivers of network dynamics;
• Dynamics of dormant and reconnected ties and the impact on business innovation.

Entrepreneurial activity and the entrepreneurial process, despite being widely debated and researched, remain an object of interest for researchers, professionals and academics. This interest is related to the absence of definitive models that can explain and guide the creation of successful businesses. Recent literature has emphasized the importance of recognizing the diversity of initiatives and the value of different types of companies to build a healthy environment in economic, social and environmental terms (Morris, Neumeyer & Kuratko, 2015), often pointing to entrepreneurial activity as a complex process (McMullen & Dimov, 2013).
In this way, the context acquires relevance (Baker & Welter, 2018), like those observed in developing economies, which exhibit an absence of entrepreneurial culture, lack of legal provisions that encourage entrepreneurship, scarcity of resources - such as access to credit and financing - , in addition to the lack of cooperation between local enterprises and anchor organizations – such as universities and established private companies – which does not contribute to entrepreneurial activity (Cao & Shi, 2020). In the case of peripheral regions or that are going through economic crises, for example, the entrepreneur will have in their most intimate social network, the family nucleus, the mainstay for access to resources (Benneworth, 2004), building their enterprise with “whatever he wants it in hand” (Baker & Nelson, 2005, p. 330). Thus, it is understood that macro-environmental conditions will influence entrepreneurial activity, including socioeconomic and ecological aspects (Wiklund, Wright & Zahra, 2019).
It is up to entrepreneurship research, then, to debate alternatives and possible solutions to the “great challenges”, such as poverty, minorities, inequality, pollution, climate change, advances and side effects of digitalization and other issues of intense current relevance (Berger, Von Briel , Davidsson & Kuckertz, 2019; Ricciardi, Rossignoli & Zardini, 2021). Keeping the impact achieved by entrepreneurship research in

Today's economic, political and environmental challenges have mobilized diverse actors at the local, regional and national levels, as well as on a global scale. Despite the apparent awareness of the socio-environmental problems experienced, few analyzes have been undertaken regarding social innovations and their ecosystems in terms of theories, characteristics and impacts (PRADEL MIQUEL; GARCÍA CABEZA; EIZAGUIRRE ANGLADA, 2013). Based on a comprehensive concept of social innovation (DOMANSKI; HOWALDT; KALETKA, 2020), this theme proposes to discuss the social innovations operated by organizations in the urban context. In this sense, it seeks to discuss social innovation and its relationship with social change and transformation, based on its consequences for the local level, highlighting the multisectoral perspective. The results of research on social innovations, social innovation ecosystems and their consequences in cities are of interest, as well as collective responses aimed at the capacity of different actors to develop socially innovative practices. The Social Innovation Ecosystems (EIS) approach, from governance to sustainability and its influence in promoting more sustainable cities is central to this research agenda and also to the practice of social innovation (KALETKA; MARKMANN; PELKA, 2016; ALIJANI et al., 2016; HODSON; KAIKA, 2017; HOWALDT et al., 2018; 2019; ANDION; ALPERSTEDT; GRAEFF, 2020).
The theme invites authors to submit their articles on the following topics, but not restricted to them:
- Discussion on social innovation paradigms and theories;
- Experiences of social innovation and social innovation ecosystems in cities;
- Social Innovation and Governance for Sustainability;
- Multi-sectorial social innovations;
- Social Innovation and Social change
- Related topics.

One of the determinants of a country's economic development is its human capital and, therefore, the development of entrepreneurial skills has been recognized by the educational systems of many countries as a central element in the formation of this capital. In the context of education, the competence must identify what a person needs to respond to the problems they will be exposed to throughout their life (Zaballa & Arnau, 2014).
To develop these skills, what can be seen is the introduction of entrepreneurship education, from basic education to higher education, going beyond the focus on business creation. In Brazil, education for entrepreneurship, from the point of view of public policies, became part of the agenda, formalized in the Common National Curriculum Base (BNCC). The purpose is to provide means for people to develop skills and competencies that enable their performance in increasingly complex activities (Almeida & Packard, 2018). It is essential to be aware of the educational ecosystem that involves the promotion of active learning methodologies, training of educators, university-school partnerships to facilitate the teaching-learning process that will promote the gradual development of acquisition and skills and competencies necessary for life in society.
This theme brings together theoretical and empirical studies of articles that examine, without excluding other possibilities within the scope of this call:
- Education for Entrepreneurship in Basic Education and Higher Education
- Pedagogical and organizational practices for the development of entrepreneurship education
- Integration of Professional Education and Entrepreneurship Education
- Development of courses for training educators to teach entrepreneurship
- Educational methodologies for entrepreneurship
- Innovative learning environments
- Didactic-pedagogical practices oriented to Entrepreneurship for comprehensive professional training
- Studies and research on Entrepreneurship in the Postgraduate courses
- Teaching Cases in Entrepreneurship

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
Innovative and Entrepreneurial Behavior
Culture for Innovation
Pedagogy for Innovation
Learning for Innovation
Mindset for Innovation and Entrepreneurship

Agribusiness in Brazil has been a major support of Brazilian GDP and is the sector in which we are world leaders in the production of various crops, such as soybeans, corn, oranges, sugarcane, coffee, cattle, poultry, etc. (IBGE, 2017) and in supplying the population. In this context, innovation and entrepreneurship are essential in contributing to the solution of problems at the level of production units, as well as to our agro-industrial systems as a whole. Therefore, advancing knowledge in regard to innovation and entrepreneurship in agribusiness is of academic and practical relevance. USP's SEMEAD has already awakened to this locus of knowledge. ANPAD could also contribute to the advancement of knowledge through the Administration and Accounting PPGs, in addition to doctoral and master's programs in agribusiness, and several undergraduate courses and technology exclusive to this topic. Finally, the aim of this theme is to examine and advance the various dimensions of innovation and entrepreneurship within the context of agribusiness. So, we encourage contributions that address, but not limit themselves to, the following topics:
Innovation, Technology, and Sustainability in Agribusiness: 4.0 technologies, digital agriculture, smart farming, biotechnology and production systems and sustainable technologies in agribusiness, and ESG (Environmental, Social and Corporate Governance) in organizations;
Innovation and Entrepreneurship Ecosystems in Agribusiness: agribusiness startups (Agtechs), technology-based companies, science and technology institutions (ICTs) and universities, investors, incubators, accelerators, hubs, poles, technology parks and society;
Entrepreneurship and Innovation, Social and Impact Organizations: the profile of rural entrepreneurs, creating businesses, cooperativism, networks, family farming, and ;
Transformative Innovation: Sustainable Sociotechnological Transition, National and Regional Innovation Systems, Technological Sustainable Innovation/Entrepreneurship Systems, Technological Partner Niches; Innovative entrepreneurship and Sustainable Transition in production units;
Entrepreneurship and Innovation in Sustainable Products and Processes: sustainable products and processes in agribusiness chains;
Management and Public Policies of Innovation and Entrepreneurship in Agribusiness.

The objective of this track is to examine new methods, techniques, and processes that allow the methodological development of research in innovation and entrepreneurship management contexts. We encourage contributions that explore the association of different methods, multi-mixed methods, or that address, but are not limited to, the following topics: (1) Specificities of innovation and/or entrepreneurship management for methodological and theoretical design: How can exist and emerging methods contribute to the theoretical and analytical advance for studies in the field of Innovation/entrepreneurship? Or how can new methods be applied in teaching innovation and entrepreneurship? (2) Interdisciplinary Research: How can methods from other areas of knowledge contribute to innovation management and/or entrepreneurship studies? Advances in cognitive science, analysis, simulation, and computational intelligence that can be applied to the study of innovation and/or entrepreneurship; (3) New units and levels of analysis in innovation/entrepreneurship management: What kind of methodological challenges and opportunities exist when studying forms of organization such as innovation or entrepreneurial ecosystems? How can we study innovation management and/or entrepreneurship issues when many actors or information are involved? (4) Measurement issues in innovation management and/or entrepreneurship research: How can we measure the apparently intangible concepts used in innovation management and/or entrepreneurship research? (5) Methodologies, techniques, tools, metrics, and practical impact: How can we use methods to better communicate results so that they can be understood outside academia? How can we combine rigorous research methods with practical relevance at the same time? (6) Methodologies and new techniques for data collection, cleaning, standardization, processing, and analysis for research and scientific production in the field of innovation and entrepreneurship.

New issues related to different disruption modes - such as technological changes, institutional interruptions, and global challenges for society - emerge, leveraging sector transformation, new business generation and new epistemologies. It is important to understand the peculiarities of innovation management (IM) generated by them.
● New patterns of relationships between environment and organizations are established, configuring themselves in emerging contexts that impact GI. For example, the relationship between financialization and IM (Lazonick, Mazzucato, 2013) is poorly explored. What conditions does financialized capitalism bring to IM? Furthermore, transformative innovation makes it possible to face global challenges such as sustainability and inclusion (Schot and Steinmueller, 2018), which were enhanced by the pandemic COVID-19, leading to changes in technological development in national innovation systems (Guderian et al., 2020). What are the trends in policies for transformative innovation? What are the skills needed to engage different actors in transformative innovation? How has innovation been managed to accelerate the development of pandemic-fighting technologies in public and private institutions?
● The management of inter- and intra-organizational relationships requires greater understanding to overcome disruptions. How do organizations overcome the challenge of long-distance collaboration? How does substitution/overlapping (Hansen, 2015) influence relationships between partners with geographic and non-spatial distances? How to sustain mechanisms for university-industry interaction with high relational intensity that enable knowledge co-creation (Perkmann et al., 2013; Rossi et al., 2017)?
● Disruptions drive changes in organizations. How do organizations develop capabilities to deal with technological trends? How to understand labor in innovation activities? Does ambidexterity (Gibson and Birkinshaw, 2004) favor IM?
● Epistemologically, how can critical and interpretive approaches (e.g. innovation as a complex and performative process and practice - Garud et al., 2018; Langley et al, 2013) contribute to IM?

There is a growing interest of managers and practitioners in creating, adopting and developing structures, methods and techniques to manage innovation within organizations (Hidalgo & Albors, 2008). Innovation management concerns how organizations deal with creating, diffusing, or adopting innovations.
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 (Van de Ven, Angle, & Poole, 2000; Joe Tidd, 2001; Utterback, 1994) as well as recent ones (Damanpour, 2020; OECD, 2018; Škudienė 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. Silva et al. (2014, p. 488) argue that managing innovation processes 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".
With the emergence of models, tools and methods to support innovation decision-making processes, this track aims at revealing different perspectives and approaches on innovation management and its implications within the organizational context. Submissions should include conceptual and empirical approaches, either quantitative and qualitative, on:
- Emerging in-house and open innovation management tools, in public or private organizations, resulting in technological, managerial and/or social innovation;
- Integration of innovation management with strategies and decision-making processes in different organizational arrangements;
- Comparative studies on innovation management tools for different geographies, sectors and organizational sizes.

The circular economy (CE) presupposes adherence to business models that contribute to the circularity of materials along production chains. The intention is to retain value by retaining resources in supply chains, in the same cycle or in different cycles. The shorter the cycle for reintroducing material into the same supply chain or another, the greater the retained value. Following this prerogative, the 10Rs illustrate the potential for retaining the value 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, the engagement of different actors is required, the integration of innovation and the assumptions of circularity in the strategy and operations of organizations. This requires an organizational culture aligned with the precepts of the circular economy. In addition to demanding new non-financial metrics to measure circularity levels, the need for management based on ethical, social and environmental values. Thus, the proposed theme is subdivided into different topics for CE, detailed below: Background and barriers. Practices. Transition from linear to circular model. Business models. Circular commercial alternatives. Social dimension. Reformulation of products and supply chains. Modularization and use in cascade. Reuse of products, components and materials. EC and communication with the market. Sustainable cities and EC. Performance and evaluation indicators. Industrial ecosystems. Institutional changes and Public Policies towards CE. Eco-design. Reduction. Reuse. Recycling. Reclassification. Renovation (renewable energies). Manufacturing cost. Skills. Leadership. Innovation. Modeling, simulation, decision models and operational research techniques for CE. Technological and sustainability transitions. Integration of EC with Industry 4.0, Digital Transformation and emerging technologies.

Digital Transformation (DT), through the use of digital technologies has been pointed as the responsible for the major changes in the organizational and social context (Majchrzak et al., 2016; Vial, 2019). In the organizational context, companies should seek to reshape their business model through the use of digital technologies, focusing on innovation, operational improvements and cost reduction (Chanias, Myers & Hess, 2019; Hess et al., 2016). To succeed in the DT journey, organizations has to incorporate in their strategies, aspects related to digital technologies, planning and i4.0 systems (Mokgohloa, Kanakana-Katumba, & Maladzhi, 2020).
Digital transformation plays a significant role in sustainable development and impacts the way organizations manage their sustanability. To accelerate progress towards the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the UN 2030 agenda (UN, 2015) it is crucial to use the full potential of these transformations, with an active digital cooperation and interactions among researchers and policymakers.
Sustainable management organize the entire innovation process to achieve sustainability, waste reduction, social responsibility and a competitive advantage through learning and continuous development, embracing goals and strategies that are fully integrated to the objectives and strategies of the organization (HADEN; OYLER; HUMPHREYS, 2009).
In this sense, this theme proposal, in the area of Operations Management, aims to discuss the contribution and impact of digital transformation in the sustainable management of organizations. Work contributions are welcomed in the following topics, but not limited to these:

The "Project management: processes, people and technologies" track includes studies, research and academic work related to the unit of analysis called "project", which can be defined as a temporary effort to create an unique product, service or result, developed within an organization or a set of organizations, with time constraints, resources and a defined scope. Its importance can be highlighted by the need of organizations, public or private, to properly implement their projects in order to fulfill the strategic objectives that gave rise to them. Based on this understanding, we proposed three project studies strands. The first refers to the processes used for project governance and management, both with predictive and agile methodologies. The second strand is about people, including project managers, teams, customers and other stakeholders. The third one deals with technologies associated with project management.
The subtopics of interest are as follows: Projects as temporary organizations; Project management methodologies; Project management tools and techniques; The project manager; Strategic project management; Maturity in project management; Programs and project portfolios; Project performance, benefits and success; International projects; Megaprojects; Governance and organizational structures for projects; Project offices; Knowledge management and Lessons learned in projects; Teaching and training in project management; Industry 4.0 technologies and projects; Agile and hybrid approaches; Projects in the public sector; Project-based organizations; Cases in projects: cultural, social, environmental, humanitarian aid projects; Historic projects; and Sustainability and project management

Operations management has faced new demands that go beyond its traditional perspective on efficiency and productivity, including environmental, social and governance guidelines. The Covid-19 pandemic consolidated and fostered this demand (Patrucco and Kähkönen, 2021), as well as adverse weather conditions, port closings, exchange rate fluctuations and political instability (Sarkis et al., 2020) that substantially affect operations.
Allied to this, digitization (Bai et al., 2021) directly impacts the literature on sustainable operations and dialogues with themes already consolidated. For example, a fresh look at ethics among supply chain members (Beske and Seuring, 2014); the deepening of social issues (Yawar and Seuring, 2017; Morais and Silvestre, 2018); the demand for more transparent management frameworks (Marques et al. 2021); barriers to sustainability in operations and supply chains, such as corruption (Silvestre et al., 2018; Silvestre, Viana and Monteiro, 2020); and the tensions and paradoxes of sustainability (Pagell et al., 2020; Govidan et al., 2021;).

Turbulences in global and local markets offer innovative opportunities to improve our field of knowledge. Our objective is to discuss and seek solutions to current challenges, especially concerning operations management and the supply chain, through the debate on ways to tackle major disruptions, promote agile responses and reduce the vulnerabilities in different industries. This objective can be achieved by adapting existing technologies and/ or adopting new ones, innovations in organizations and the supply chain, improvements in governance mechanisms, etc. Thus, we hope to receive research that can benefit the adaptation or creation of more resilient environments, which provide for the strengthening of organizations and their production chains about economic, social, environmental, technological and governance aspects.
Questions and topics regarding how to improve risk management and resilience in organizations and supply chains may include, among others:

The importance of services goes beyond traditional service sectors (eg healthcare, hospitality, transport, etc.) as many industrial companies have invested in a wider range of services to increase their competitive advantage. Thus, service research grew and gained specific journals, such as Journal of Service Research, Journal of Services Management, Journal of Service Theory and Practice, Service Science and The Services Industries Journal. In operations management, researchers explore the nuances of service operations. Moreover, there are the challenges posed by innovations and new technologies (for example, IoT, artificial intelligence and robotics) that have been transforming operations in general and changing ways of providing services. This theme explores aspects related to service operations management, innovation and the relationship between both concepts. We are interested in studies in organizations that operate in the Business-to-business (B2B) and Business-to-consumers/users (B2C) markets, in the public or private sphere.
We encourage submission of papers related to different topics, including:
- service experience management
- quality management, productivity and performance in services
- co-creation, co-production and customer participation in service operations
- logistics and supplies for services
- service recovery
- Process, product and service innovation
- Development of new products and services
- Innovation-oriented capabilities
- Applications of new technologies to industry and services
- infusion into services, servitization, digital servitization and product-service systems
- new technologies in service operations and self-service technology
- knowledge-intensive business services (KIBS) and business-to-business (B2B) services operations
- management models adapted to public services

Researches related to increasing productivity and quality in operations management becomes essential for discussing strategy and operational management. In this sense, the topic will discuss manufacturing strategies, where projects and implementation of systems and processes aimed at increasing and improving productivity and quality start from using new technologies. Issues related to the creation of value in production processes from eliminating waste using lean manufacturing tools and techniques and the control of production variability, based on the six sigma methodology, can be examples of research results in productivity to be discussed on this topic. The theme will discuss subjects related to incorporating quality into products, processes, and services. In this way, research on implementing Quality Management Systems and integrated management systems can be the object of interest to Productivity and Quality. We accept articles on operations strategy, management, and operational excellence principles and techniques. The topic of productive operations management is open to several research methods, including modeling, qualitative and quantitative studies.
Potential topics for submission may include (but are not limited to):
• Operations Strategy
• PCP, Lean, Six Sigma and Industry 4.0
• Drivers, facilitators, barriers, and challenges of quality management systems.

Over the last 30 years, and especially since the 2000s, research on Leadership has significantly grown (Carton, 2021; Day et al., 2021; Gardner et al., 2020). In essence, leading involves directing, aligning, and mobilizing people (Kotter, 2001) and leadership is especially important when groups, associations, and societies need to deal with adaptive challenges (Heifetz, Grashow, & Linsky, 2009). In recent decades, new paradigms, theories and approaches on the phenomenon of leadership have emerged , moving from a perspective that focuses on the figure of the leader (traits, styles and behaviors) to a more dynamic and relational phenomena, involving different mechanisms and loci of leadership (Hernandez et al., 2008).
The theme, therefore, aims at promoting the production, debate and discussion of studies, research and paradigms around leadership, based on social, organizational and individual dimensions. It welcomes both research that follows or challenges the mainstream of studies on the theme.
The set of theories and subtopics includes theoretical and empirical studies covering classical and emerging approaches, leadership and power, power relations in the workplaces, leadership and culture, leadership and revolution 4.0, leadership and identity, leadership and gender, leadership and critical perspectives, leadership and teams, leadership and other elements of the organizational and human behavior, leadership and public administration, leadership development, leadership and education, leadership and new organizational configurations, leadership and complexity, leadership and digital economy, leadership and uncertainty, leadership in the post-pandemic context (COVID-19) and leadership in the context of telecommuting.

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 include the individual, group and organization. Faced with such a vast, diverse and fragmented field, several clippings are possible. Thus, it is proposed to discuss and reflect about 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 relationship’s quality of the relationship between workers and organizations.
Thus, based on the theme of organizational behavior, some common subthemes are proposed but that 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) Organizational Culture; g) Values (personal, professional, at work, organizational); h) Commitment, work bonds, entrenchment; (i) organizational justice; j) Ethics; h) Work teams; i) Emotions at work; j) Tools and scales for measuring organizational behavior.

In the contemporary context of greater international movement, in which there is greater mobility of professionals, the international human resource management is a growing demand in organizations. As examples, we can think of the need for criteria for choosing who will be sent abroad in order to meet knowledge transfer demands; how an expatriate's family should participate in the international transfer process; what support is needed to minimize difficulties in adapting to the new reality abroad; what are the organization's expatriation and repatriation policies; and, what are the legal aspects that involve working in a foreign country. These are just some of the challenges that the human resource department faces in the internationalization and mobility processes of professionals. Thus, the following research issues are suggested: The legal, political, economic, social and cultural context in different countries and the influence on the international human resource management; Organizational Culture and International Human Resource Management; Comparison between international human resource management practices in different countries and sectors; Mergers, Acquisitions, Internationalization and Human Resource Management; Global mobility programs in Brazilian organizations; Global mobility policies during the Covid-19 pandemic; Human resource management policies and practices aimed at internationalization; Expatriation and repatriation of executives, technical and operational professionals; Organizational practices that contribute to intercultural adaptation; Organizational processes that favor or hinder global mobility; International alignment in Human Resource Management; Diversity management in multinational companies; Acculturation processes for expatriates and their families; Retention and valuation programs for international professionals; Organizational support to expatriate families: before, during, after; The international career and its multiple challenges; Training and development of global leaders in companies; Soft and hard skills required by professionals with an international career; Trends and challenges in international human resource management.

It is expected to bring discussion of theoretical and empirical research on competencies, competency management and learning, including different methodological approaches and research time frames.
The perspective of competency management includes studies that address the general view or at least one of the stages of competency management (e.g., competency diagnosis and prognosis, competency development, provision of competencies, competency-based performance assessment, competency-based reward, competency certification, competency learning paths).
Studies about competences in their different dimensions, typologies, management levels and professions are included in the scope of this theme.
From the perspective of learning, studies on learning practices and processes are expected, both formally and informally, 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.
Thus, it is expected that studies will be presented which consider the possibilities and challenges for the study of competences, measuring the effects of learning, competences or competence management in the public and private spheres and in Third Sector organizations as a whole. Investigations that contemplate different perspectives for the levels of analysis of competences and learning - multilevel, organizational, team, individual.
Faced with the post-pandemic context of COVID 19, the imperatives of digital transformation and ESG factors, the reconfigurations of professional relationships trigger the development of skills and learning. In this theme, the study of the variables that influence the perception/expression of competences, comparative studies on the implementation of competence management in different organizations, of competence management maturity models, advances in practices linked to the competence management model are also expected, different perspectives on learning to understand and deal with scenario challenges.

The current work context, permeated by the effects of globalization and increasing technological advances, influence career management in different ways. However, people's awareness of the transformations in the world of work does not always evolve at the same speed when the digital disruptions appear.
Another issue, also essential, is the coexistence of the different worlds of work that are at different stages or speeds of absorption of a digital culture in their professional realities. One of these stages is actually experienced by workers involved in routine activities, the production line, to the writer of repetitive text contracts. In this context, the perception of the “hybrid presence” of robotics as a threat to human work occupies different phases. It is no different in work with a creative, cognitive or persuasive profile with regard to the “hybrid presence” of artificial intelligence to occupy space that used to belong to the workers' humans, in an increasingly consistent manner.
In this context, several questions appear: How do organizational values coexist with the hybrid presence with first the robotics and then with the artificial intelligence? Do known generational definitions resist the pressures of artificial intelligence to rewrite functions and activities? The development of competences, with accelerated programmed obsolescence, how does it fit with the view that the career is owned by the individual?
Considering this scenario and several discussions on technology and people management, widely disseminated both in academia and in the professional sphere, we invite researchers to submit articles, considering possibilities associated with the following themes:

Deepening processes of globalization, technological change, organizational restructuring, and capital mobility have contributed to the reconfiguration of both labor markets and careers (Adamson, Doherty & Viney, 1998). The proliferation of alternative work arrangements, rising unemployment and underemployment have contributed to the increasing polarization and precarization of work (Callanan, Perri, & Tomkowski, 2017). Changes in cultural and individual dimensions, in turn, signal a new relationship of the workforce, especially skilled labor, to work, in which a growing contingent of individuals seek to engage in a more meaningful relationship with their careers (Sullivan & Al Ariss, 2021).
This set of changes has impacted the traditional career model, portrayed as linear, stable and ascending. New career models, united by a focus on the individual dimension, have been proposed in order to understand the greater complexity of career trajectories, such as boundaryless (Arthur, 1994), protean (Hall & Mirvis, 1996), kaleidoscopic (Mainiero & Sullivan, 2005), and sustainable (De Vos, Heidjen, & Akkermans, 2018) careers. While the central focus on agency remains, the last two modalities have extended their interests to gender and social space/time dimensions, respectively, in line with the growing concern for valuing multiple contexts in career studies.
Alternatively, perspectives are emerging that tend to value the external conditioning factors of careers (Pringle et al., 2020), through a movement of (re)appropriation of sociological approaches such as Institutionalism, Practice Theory and Symbolic Interactionism, in which careers are used as a means of understanding the complex interactions between individual, organization and Society. Among other aspects, the impact of social markers such as class, ethnicity, gender and race on the career building process is valued (Mayrhofer et al., 2007).

Given the situation resulting from fiscal weakness and the COVID-19 pandemic, which has, on one hand, social and economic implications characterized by the deepening of social inequality, increased demands related to health; and on the other hand, marked by financial restrictions that affect personnel management, this track seeks to deal with people management issues/initiatives that deal with working conditions, management mode, leadership and policies/initiatives aimed at this area in the context of complex challenges. The public service currently coexists with two extremes in people management. In the same organization, it is possible to find outdated processes and modern people management practices. 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. According to Gaetani (2010), despite the reformist discourse demanding professionalization of public management, with changes the recruitment and selection system, job and salary policies, etc., the primary concern has always been to reduce the payroll and downsizing.
Therefore, the presence of various management models and traces of outdated models may exist in institutions until today, considering that the implementation of models is usually not consolidated. Skorková (2016) points out that managerial functions can be similar and generic between the public and private sectors, but the conditions in these two environments are quite different. Additionally, even greater challenges arise for people management in the public sector, when considering the context of the area, especially due to COVID-19, political instability, state reform, among others. Discussing policies and practices and debating how public organizations have been organizing themselves in their people management is essential to contribute to society and to the daily challenges that the area has been facing.

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.
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.
Affections and Work.
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.

The social, economic and in the labor relations transformations and the impositions made on workers by organizations, added to the Covid-19 pandemic, brought positive and negative impacts to the work context (ILO, 2021; WHO, 2018), with the consequences of increasing cognitive, emotional and psychosocial mental demands (GLINA; ROCHA, 2010) and workers' illnesses (WHO, 2018).
Hostile strategies and management are reinvented and practiced, and have the potential to cause damage to the worker's physical and mental health, in addition to the consequent illness in its most different forms. Besides to being topics still little explored in the literature, organizations tend to naturalize violence and the elements that affect health and illness at work (MINAYO; ASSIS, 2017; CHAPPELL; DI MARTINO, 2006), seeking to repress the individual's resistance processes (considered as counterproductive behaviors from an organizational standpoint), who were threatened, attacked and harassed (FERREIRA et al., 2011).
In this way, we invite empirical or theoretical works, from different epistemological and methodological approaches, which seek to promote and advance knowledge on these themes and other related topics, such as: quality of life at work; physical and mental health at work; illness at work (burnout syndrome, anxiety, depression, stress, besides physical illnesses); violence at work (moral and sexual harassment, intimidation and coercion, incivility, etc.); accident and suicide resulting from work; retaliation in organizations; organizational injustice; violence and resistance processes, among other related themes.

Considered a central activity that structures the lives of individuals, work began to acquire different meanings even more in times of increased flexibility and outsourcing, supported by the discourse of employability and management of one's own career. Therefore, the meaning of work has been, repeatedly, an object of research.
The discussion on the topic also encompassed the new formats of work regulation, temporary contracts, flexible hours, reduced working hours and telework (RODRIGUES et al. 2017)
Exploring this unprecedented conversation, from different ontologies and epistemologies, between the meaning of work, social identities (visible or invisible) and organizational contexts (organizational structures, processes, practices and policies) will contribute to a better understanding and advancement of the discussion. on the topic in question, but also on the organizational processes of inclusion and exclusion, pleasure and suffering, and, ultimately, quality of life in the workplace and its relationship with productivity.

Similarly, we understand that studies on diversity in work environments have privileged the colonizing, androcentric, white, rich, heterosexual, young and conventionally beautiful. In this sense, we understand that it is up to the academy to initiate a movement of decolonization of (social) identities and instrumental diversity policies adopted by organizations. To this end, we believe that it is essential that we become aware of the pervasiveness of a "manipulated system" of social and cultural injustices, which are economically determined and structured (Reich, 2020).
Thus, the objective of this working group is to promote the debate on all forms of inequalities in labor relations and public policies for the different dimensions of diversity, as well as in a global political economy, as well as the recognition and analysis of the "traces" left by the slave period and patriarchal, sexist and homophobic society, in the practices of people management in organizations.
In this working group, we accept empirical and theoretical papers that start from any ontological premise and use any epistemological choice, since diverse identities in the organizational spheres represent challenges for management and can lead to defensive ideologies in relation to difference, with the culmination of exclusionary practices and the attribution of "cultural" or "functional" identities that crystallize in essentialist distinctions based on gender, race, ethnicity, skin color , mental illness, culture, religion, age, aesthetics, (in) abilities (physical, mental, sensory, psychosocial, intellectual), affective-sexual orientations, country or region of origin, social class or organizational situation. The experience of exclusion often manifests itself in symbolic or explicit acts of marginalization or violence that perpetuate a cycle of deprivation of rights and the emergence of identity-based social movements that require official recognition and reparation, although each of these identities reflects its own history of struggles and mobilizations.

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.

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 these themes with other correlated ones.

We propose to discuss the (i)mobility(s) related to work experienced by people and organizations in contemporary times. We live in the era of mobilities (CRESSWELL, 2006; HAAS; CASTLES; MILLER, 2020; FREITAS, 2009; RODRIGUEZ; MEARNS, 2012), although structures and contexts produce stratifications, and individual attributes limit or expand movements.
On the one hand, individuals and organizations experience international mobility and cross borders for business. On the other, power struggles drive people into movements to survive or seek work (BAUMAN, 1999; CHANLAT; DAVEL; DUPUIS, 2013).
The impact of technology on (i)mobilities has also been changing ways of working and the work-life relationship (HISLOP; AXTELL, 2007). The bonds become more fluid, wrapped in the coexistence between geographic and digital (im)mobility, such as home-office.
Work-related marks of social (i)mobility stand out (CRESSWELL; DOROW; ROSEMAN, 2016) in the inequalities of access to higher education, unemployment, flexibilization, and precarization that require new ways of working, resisting, undertaking, and (re)inventing oneself.
Although such contexts can be considered labor transformations, the Covid-19 pandemic has unveiled inequalities and challenges that made us question whether the consequences will be as fleeting as its imperative, whether the choice to remain mobile or immobile will become a privilege or whether its effects will leave deep marks in the context now known.
Theoretical and empirical research, with different epistemic perspectives are expected on the topics suggested:
Geographic - (Self)Expatriation. Global Executives. Academic, cultural, religious mobility. Brain drain. Exchange Programs. Voluntary tourism. Refugees. Internal, economic, environmental migrants.
Technological- Work, Migration and Digital nomadism. Telework. Invasions of the office at home: domestic space vs. workspace, challenges for parenting and different family configurations.
Social - Social spaces of circulation. Territories. Expressions of resistance and

The theme intends to bring together Marxist researchers who are dedicated to the study of the development of productive forces, social relations and the consequences for the working class. It is expected to analyze the development of physical, social and management technologies that capture the particularities of the exploitation of workers in the current stage of labor relations. Specifically, by labor relations, it is understood any and all relations arising from the generating fact of work, from the concreteness of the worker controles control processes to the different forms taken by wage earning (new and old ways of enforcing the employment contract - implicit and explicit, legal or illegal); entrepreneurial practices; the work platform; modern slavery; the subjectivities proper to consents, resistances, struggles, etc.; the production of disease-health manifestations and multiple oppressions. If the ways of producing the material means of reproduction of life correspond to social relations, starting from investigations about work - and/or returning to it - makes it possible to reflect on a multitude of particularities of the moral, legal and aesthetic system as means of reproduction of exploitation-oppressions and as obstacles to the constitution of a class consciousness necessary for the emancipation of classes. It is not our intention to debate the development of techniques to improve the control of the work process in favor of capital, instead, it is necessary to subject such techniques to reflection on their real and contradictory contributions to human development.
We welcome essays and empirical articles that discuss:

The manifestations of labor transformations, from the shifts caused by constant innovation, are related to organizational changes, challenging regulatory systems, and labor relations. Its effects call for research beyond classical studies (labor conditions, union-enterprise collective bargaining, flexibilization, and (de)regulation). These themes coexist with emerging ones, opening up to theoretical and empirical, qualitative and quantitative studies at the macro, meso, and micro levels. There is a need to examine existing changes and permanency, new models of organization and people management, the role of labor relations systems (LRS) in social well-being, and the civilizing process. New technologies, organizational innovations, and restructuring in industry, services, and commerce introduce and reflect a context of labor and organizational flexibility. The Internet of Things (IoT), Artificial Intelligence (AI), Industry 4.0, and new configurations of uberization and gig economy challenge people and their professions. The future of labor and the labor market is at stake. The pandemic, part of this context, changes the production process's organization, the labor market, forms of hiring, global production chains, and the international division of labor itself. Analyzing the current dynamics of labor relations and their complexity requires different analytical lenses and a strategic, critical, and innovative vision.
We invite the academic community to submit articles that address the following topics (not limited to them) in Brazil and other countries:
- Comparative studies on work transformations;
- Innovations in labor relations and the job market: entrepreneurship, industry 4.0, IoT, AI, gig economy, startups, and unicorns;
- Changes imposed by the pandemic, in particular involving the digital transition and home office work;
- Imbrications between digital transformations, people management, and labor relations;
- Labor reforms, unionism, and collective agreements in new labor organizations and their impacts on LRS.

Consumer behavior studies how people choose, purchase, use and dispose of products, services, ideas and experiences in order to satisfy their needs and desires. Due to its very nature, Consumer Behavior is always current as it reflects new and updated forms of consumption. With the emergence of new technologies, channel configurations and digital platforms, the sheer number of factors influencing consumption decisions has dramatically increased. Consequently, so did the demand for research analyzing antecedents and consequences of consumer behavior. Studies within this theme explain buyer behavior and its implications to marketing strategy and public policy. They also discuss different perspectives, including social and cultural dimensions, as well as individual differences. This theme accepts theoretical and empirical research, from surveys, correlational methods, experiments and exploratory methods. They also include, but are not limited to, studies on motivation, personality, attention, perception, information search, decision-making process, affect, attitude change and formation, and the behavioral consequences of individual differences.

The "Culture and Consumption" track includes discussions integrated with the theoretical perspective of Consumer Culture Theory (CCT), an interdisciplinary research tradition that has contributed to the knowledge of consumer culture (in all its heterogeneous manifestations) and generated empirically grounded findings and theoretical innovations relevant to a broad audience from the social science disciplines, the public policy arena, and the business sectors. In this sense, the track includes studies or essays that seek to explore consumption - discourses, meanings, socio-materiality, influences, practices - from a multidisciplinary approach. It articulates areas of knowledge such as Anthropology, Philosophy, Sociology, History, Linguistics and Social Communication. As examples, we can mention the investigations that seek to understand consumption and issues related to gender, aesthetics, regionalities, construction and maintenance of social identity, cultural and social differences, urban tribes, different types of consumer collectivities, networks, anti-consumption and resistance, nostalgia and memory related to consumption and consumer behavior.

This track aims to broaden the interconnection between the field of marketing and the notion of market. Prevailing in discussions in the field of marketing until 1960, this interconnection has resurfaced in light of the recognition of the role that the market - its production and its dynamics - has in marketing theorization and practice. The interest in the subject involves researchers initially connected with the sociocultural perspectives of consumption, industrial marketing and macromarketing, as well as sociology and economic anthropology. The ontological perspective that shapes market studies ranges from structuralist conceptions of the market, Practice Theory, culture, and Systems Theory to flat ontologies such as the Actor-Network Theory. Thus, it includes studies that address the 'market' - from the most different theoretical and methodological perspectives - as a central element. It involves studies connected with emerging perspectives in the description of markets, such as constructivist market studies, market as a practice, exercise of agency and market modeling, dynamic market systems, among others. It also includes market studies from different levels of analysis (macro, meso and micro), notions of aggregated marketing systems, institutions and institutional processes involving markets and the intersectionality involving markets and society. As examples, possible discussions on this track involve, among others, the description of the dynamics that shape a given market, market formatting, analysis of alternative markets, conflicts and the role of different actors in market constitution, structure, regulation and institutionalization of markets, processes of commodification, cultural, sociological, historical and anthropological explanations for markets.

The theme Theory, Epistemology and Research Methods in Marketing is already offered as an option for submitting papers to EnANPAD for many years. One of its main contributions is to be an opportunity for the submission of articles that discuss and reflects at the same time the essence of the academic marketing area, as the proposals of new suggestions of theories, models and methodologies that should be explored by the marketing area in future articles. Studies that explore both the development and application of new qualitative and quantitative research methods in marketing and contributions to the development of theory and epistemology in marketing. Includes studies regarding new methodological applications in marketing studies, such as the development and of new scales, theoretical models, models of prediction and simulation. It also covers methodological and epistemological discussions about qualitative and quantitative methods in marketing. It includes studies that seek to understand the marketing phenomena associated with different global and Brazilian realities, integrating theoretical and methodological contributions from other management areas. Includes discussions of epistemological applied to the construction of Theories in Marketing. This is a theme that already exists in the marketing division and allows not only testing or proposing methodological and theoretical innovations and improvements, but also a reflection on the current production and trends of marketing research conducted in the national and international context. All types of studies involving qualitative and quantitative data analysis, literature reviews, bibliometric studies and theoretical and conceptual essays are welcome.

This research track relates marketing strategies and activities as inputs and marketing performance as the main output (s). By inputs we refer to the entire marketing effort of marketing strategies, the 4p´s: product / service, price, market, and promotion. By output variables of performance response we refer at the consumer mindset level (brand equity, perceived quality, satisfaction, attitudinal loyalty) (sales, market share, profitability), accounting and financial (costs, profits, margins, leverage, return to market) or consumer behavior (acquisition, retention, word of mouth, customer lifetime value, share of wallet).. The research theme is theoretically grounded on the productivity chain and marketing performance results. It therefore includes studies on concepts, models, and theories about relationships between companies, customers, and other parties involved in value delivery and performance development. For these reasons, this is a transversal research topic, whose main objective is to understand the effect and return of marketing activities on performance measures. Hence, the subject receives studies of diverse methodological inspirations, such as surveys, experimental or econometric modeling applied to marketing data and several analytical techniques to understand the resulting impact of marketing at firm, company (or retail) or product-brand or consumer levels. Finally, it may also include systematic literature reviews (bibliometric reviews or meta-analytic studies) which the main purpose is to explain the determinants of market performance variables at their different levels.

This theme is motivated by the emergence of service-based business models, made possible by new communication and information technologies, new market regulations and new forms of social interaction. This theme focuses on the theoretical evolution and methodological revitalization of the marketing discipline associated with the evolution of service-dominated logic (LDS) and services based on artificial intelligence (AI). This combination promotes an emerging service science based on service systems, whose innovation, marketing and management profit from this new theoretical framework. The theme receives research in LDS, ranging from issues related to value propositions, resource integration processes, current institutional logics, as well as studies involving aspects related to service science, such as the articulation between organizational and human understandings and new environments of business. Thus, the theme includes research related to services, such as innovation, ecosystems, technology and management, digital services, especially artificial intelligence applications, co-creation and value destruction, transformative services and other related subjects.

Brands are a valuable asset for organizations; often representing a source of competitive advantage by their potential to bestow value to products and services; differentiate marketing offers from the competition; generating loyalty and superior results for organizations. The present scenario of technological acceleration and digitalization of the company-consumer relationships; the growing environmental and social challenges, the appearance of startups that challenge traditional models; the exponential growth of communication and information technologies all indicate up-and-coming investigation venues for threats and opportunities in consumer-brand relationships.
Studies about consumer-brand relationships stand out for being published in top journals related to Brand Management and top journals in Marketing; Consumer Behavior, and Communication. They encompass different theoretical approaches, such as a more utilitarian perspective in which customers aim to maximize the utility of their brand relationships to approaches that investigate symbolical and emotional ties that generate gratification to customers. This track also studies how meaning creation is related to individual brand interaction, brand communities’ dynamics, or a cultural approach to the phenomena.
Therefore, the proposed track-theme reunites studies about phenomena related to the following subthemes: client-based brand equity; identity, positioning and brand reputation; brand architecture and branding strategies; brand equity impacts in the marketing mix; integrated and digital brand communication; social responsibility, activism, and brand advocacy; perspectives of consumer-brand relationship studies (e.g., autoconnection; community, engagement, brand love, and brand hate); models and variables utilized in the explanation and prevision of consumer-brand relationships (e.g., personality, justice, authenticity, hypocrisy, value, satisfaction, commitment, trust, and loyalty).

The theme “Marketing and Society” is located in the field of macromarketing, a field that is part of the non-interactive-non-economic perspective of marketing schools, which emerged from the 1960s onwards. Supporters of this field are dedicated to defending an approach system for marketing to improve social welfare strategies and policies. In this sense, the theme has as its main proposal to debate the various aspects related to the effects of marketing on society, having as a guiding principle to analyze both the positive aspects and the dysfunctions and problems inherent in this relationship. Thus, studies that articulate ethics in marketing, conscious consumption, collaborative consumption, resistance to consumption, consumerism, sustainability in marketing, subjective quality of life and personal well-being, positive and/or negative externalities of marketing activities and challenges and dilemmas of consumer relations and the market.
This theme also includes studies based on the proposal of Transformative Consumer Research and Transformative Service Research, in which the figure of vulnerable consumers becomes central, but which also lead to the emergence of other issues such as hunger, obesity, food policy , citizenship and consumption, modern slavery, refugees, deviant paths of consumption, gender and intersectionality, narratives and stigmatization are also welcome. With regard to onto-epistemological choices, different perspectives and currents, 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.

Digital marketing and consumer behavior in the digital world are central marketing issues these days, both for academia and for business. Similarly, understanding how companies and consumers deal with innovations, developing or deciding to adopt them, gains more relevance according to the speed with which such innovations emerge in the information age. This theme contemplates works that explore digital marketing in any of its aspects (digital consumer behavior, digital social networks, e-commerce, digital advertising, mobile commerce, electronic word of mouth - eWOM, marketing via mobile devices, augmented reality, search engine marketing, virtual reality, games, metrics and digital data, big data, email marketing, electronic marketplaces, affiliate marketing, location-based marketing, blog marketing, digital influencers, 3D virtual worlds, digital platforms, digital offerings and new pricing rules on platforms, among others), as well as works that deal with the development, diffusion and adoption of innovations and new technologies (diffusion theories, decision making process, adoption and acceptance models of technologies - TAM, UTAUT and others, adoption rate, innovation attributes, development of innovations, opinion leadership, diffusion networks, change agents, consequences of innovations, among others). The theme is open to digital marketing and innovation studies that focus on consumer behavior as well as research that is focused on the perspective of companies regarding innovations or digital marketing activities, exploring the dynamics of digital platforms.

Topics connected to agribusiness and food have attracted continuous and consistent attention from researchers around the world, and after the occurrence of the COVID-19 Pandemic, the debate has expanded due to the pressing need to keep agri-food chains functioning, respecting the triad of health, safety, and sustainability. This track invites studies, theoretical essays, and research in the fields of strategy, marketing and consumer behavior that focus on agribusiness, food industry and retail, as well as foodservice and gastronomic tourism. It covers studies related to the analysis and propositions about the strategies developed by companies and public agents in the different agribusiness value chains. Sample topics may include studies that unveil and discuss the behavior of food consumers and the impact of their decisions on the development of the food industry, retail, foodservice, and gastronomic tourism. Other topics of interest are healthy eating, veganism, food safety, sustainability in food production, traceability, and food authenticity, in addition to those related to online communities that discuss food, veganism and gastronomy.

The theme of behavioral economics questions the basic hypotheses of relationships with money, seeking to understand the individual decision-making process and financial decisions: how to save, invest or spend? In this sense, the main heuristics and biases (practical rules that guide the judgment and evaluation of individuals) and their influence on consumption decisions are studied.
These studies include cognitive, emotional, social, economic, and contextual factors in decision making. It is particularly interesting to address aspects that may lead individuals to situations of consumption vulnerability and financial vulnerability, as well as those likely to promote an increase in the general and financial well-being of the consumer. Understanding the dynamics of access to credit and generating insights to develop strategies that promote the population's financial well-being is a possible avenue for theoretical and managerial contributions.
From this perspective, the proposed theme expects to receive articles that explore different consumption contexts that investigate the financial decision-making process, considering the influence of individual and marketplace aspects. A 'financial decision' is understood to be any individual decision that comprises a financial transaction, be it consumption, savings, or investment. Possible topics include (but are not restricted to):

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)

Marketing Communications refers to the ways adopted by companies to convey messages about their brands, their products, and their services, directly or indirectly to customers, with the intention of promoting greater brand awareness and engaging consumers in the conversion funnel (awareness, interest, desire, intention, evaluation, and purchase).
The Marketing Communications theme will house theoretical and empirical papers about the use - focusing on advertisers - and effects - focusing on consumers - of marketing communication tools used by companies/brands. Including studies on Advertising, Sales Promotion, Events and Experiences (sponsorship), endorsement processes, Public Relations, Direct Marketing, Interactive Marketing, Word-of-Mouth, among others, accepting qualitative, quantitative and experimental approaches, in relation to the various existing communication channels, whether offline (TV, pay-tv, out-of-home etc.) or online (WhatsApp, e-mail marketing, digital social media, among others).
It is known that Marketing Communication is an essential strategic tool for the development of organizations, contributing to the company's ability to enhance its communication in order to cause greater impact and stand out in relation to its competitors. The theme gains even more relevance given the current context of the use of digital communication strategies added to traditional offline communication strategies.

This theme includes studies that articulate the adoption and dissemination of fashion and luxury as aesthetic manifestations of consumption behavior that seek the understanding of the dynamics of consumption in both a philosophical and a marketing approach. The aim is to analyze fashion and luxury consumption relations, whether they are between people, people and objects or between objects, and the context in which these relations take place, emphasizing the understanding of fashion consumption communities in contexts such as clothing, beauty, digital influencers, tattoos, activism, brands, luxury, virtual products, rites, collections, deviant behaviour, diversity, resistance, gender, fetishism, among others. Furthermore, the studies of fashion and luxury brand strategies, as resources of meaning construction between brands and society contribute with the fashion theory as a study of the behavior shared by a group in the same relation of time and space and with the understanding of luxury as a social construction not only of what is rare or exclusive but of what is not common or usual. To this end, this theme includes technological articles, studies and/or essays that seek to explore fashion, brands or luxury products and services (extension and stretching, 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, luxury artification, digital marketing and e-commerce in the context of fashion and luxury, new concepts in fashion and luxury retail, fashion and luxury consumer experience, usability of fashion and luxury websites.
