Call for Papers
2015 Winter Global Business Conference at Tignes (France)
February 02-06, 2015
Conference topic: Re-inventing
Hosted by: Innovation Institute
Conference Theme
Winter Global Business Conference 2015 in Tignes primarily aims at understanding the key opportunities for innovation in diverse fields. In many disciplines we need to re-invent how we look at phenomena. Businesses are continuous re-inventing business models – should academics reinvent theirs? How could models be reshaped by rearranging the “boxes and arrows”? What are the boundary conditions for diverse phenomena? What changes with the phenomena in the points of extremes?
Winter Global Business Conference welcomes both theoretical and empirical contributions that discuss important issues in their field and how these issues relate to business challenges in the global economy. Conference provides an opportunity for an interdisciplinary take on this issue. Besides its interdisciplinarity, this conference wants to provide a platform for constructive dialogue on these important issues between academia and practice.
We are looking forward to diverse contributions aiming at excelling our knowledge on the key ideas about re-inventing.
Venue – Tignes
Tignes is located in the Rhône-Alpes region in south-eastern France. It consists of five smaller villages: Tignes Les Brévières (1550m), Tignes Les Boisses (1850m), Tignes Le Lavachet (2100m), Tignes Val Claret (2100) and Tignes Le Lac (2100m) which is generally classified as the main village of Tignes. Whether you are a big fan of skiing, you prefer holidays with your family, you are fond of authenticity, or you are a party animal, Tignes shows you all it’s got to help you choose the area of the resort where you belong!
Tignes is the best known as a ski resort and, together with the nearby Val d’Isère, it forms one of the World’s largest ski areas – the Espace Killy, encompassing more than 300 kilometers of ski runs and some of Europe’s most spectacular scenery. Tignes itself has 150 kilometers of ski runs, a boarding park at Val Claret giving riders the chance to try their hand at some freestyle jumping, rails and ‘big air’, and for the more adventurous, Tignes has access to some of the World’s best off-piste terrains.
Tignes was the freestyle skiing venue for the 1992 Winter Olympics and co-host city for the 1992 Winter Paralympics. At 4.2 km, Tignes boasts the 4th longest funicular in the world. It has many bars and restaurants, and two night clubs with regular appearances of some of the top DJ’s.
