  • Conference: 06.06.2018 at 09:00 until 07.06.2018 at 16:00.

In the last 15 years, research on business models has grown exponentially, leading to an international community of scholars that have contributed to generate new ideas, causal relations, theories and tools in a variety of subjects using the business model lens. Indeed, the field of business models draws on a multitude of disciplines including entrepreneurship, strategy, HRM, organization, finance, accounting, marketing and operations management.

We invite scholars - whether PhD students or more confirmed scholars - rooted in any discipline studying business models (innovation, entrepreneurship, economics, strategy, marketing, information systems, HRM, finance…) to participate. Scholars may submit their ongoing or completed research on the topic of business models. Both theoretical papers and empirical analyses (quantitative or qualitative) may be submitted. Papers concerning any kind of organizations (firms, non-profit organizations, government….) and any industry are also suitable. While much research on business models has already been published, leading to sound insights for practice and policy-makers, research on business models is currently still raising new questions, proving that it is a progressive research stream in the sense of Lakatos. A scholarly conference dedicated to this topic is an opportunity to have constructive discussions on researching and teaching business models.

Business Model Community, Journal of Business Models and Financial Reporting Journal are sponsoring the 2nd Business Model Conference. The organizers hope to create a friendly and supportive ambiance with the participants at the conference as the objective is to convey a regular conference for the scholars of the field.


Short paper submission deadline is April 01, 2018, using the Journal of Business Models’ application system. See paper guidelines here: www.businessmodelconference.com/




Early Bird registration fee (deadline March 1, 2018): €300. Regular registration fee (deadline May 15, 2018): €340. PhD Colloquium (incl. 1-day special PhD track + admission to entire conference): €440.
