The promise of digitalization and artificial intelligence:
Implications for responsible management education
and moving forward with the SDGs

Chur, Switzerland; 18th – 21st October 2020

As part of our university’s commitment to champion responsible management and the United Nations’ Agenda 2030, we are pleased to invite the members of the global PRME community to join us this year in the beautiful alpine landscape of Switzerland for the RME Research Conference 2020.

We invite contributions from a wide range of disciplinary traditions that explore responsible management issues from both conceptual and practical perspectives, and we encourage contributions, which are multi-disciplinary and cross-disciplinary in nature. We welcome contributions that can be of a conceptual, qualitative or quantitative nature.

The conference will feature an AMLE Paper Development Workshop (PDW). This PDW provides a space for members of the RME community to receive feedback on their research-in-progress pieces and to further develop them for possible submission to AMLE or other relevant outlets. PDW places will be limited and competitive; those submitting working papers who wish to be considered for inclusion in the PDW should indicate this during the submission process.

The submissions window opens on 1st May 2020. The link will be available on the conference website on this date ( To be accepted, contributions must be submitted only through this website.
