conference overview and organization
The Israel Strategy Conference (ISC) is a voluntary initiative, not affiliated with any institution, aimed at promoting academic excellence and advancing the field of strategic management in Israel. Towards this end, ISC invites highly prestigious keynote speakers, subjects paper proposal submissions to a very strict double-blind review process, and offers the prestigious ISC Best Paper Award which carries a $1,000 cash value.
ISC provides an opportunity for scholars to exchange ideas and advance their research in strategic management and related fields such as entrepreneurship and international business. ISC is held every two years and is hosted by different Israeli universities on a rotating basis.
ISC was founded by Niron Hashai, Dovev Lavie, and Ithai Stern, with the help and advice of Avi Meshulach, Zur Shapira, and the late Avi Fiegenbaum. The first conference was held December 2007 in Jerusalem, with more than a hundred participants from all over the world. Over the years, the conference has grown to over 160 attendees.
ISC offers a variety of opportunities to get involved, including special session organizers, keynote speakers, panelists, presenters, discussants, volunteers, and sponsors.

distinguished scholars speaking at ISC 2022
ISC will be holding its annual Doctoral Consortium (18/12/2022). The world of research is all about communicating with a community of scholars with overlapping interests. Doctoral consortia are most valuable in providing an intimate setting for a cohort of doctoral students to get to know each other and meet senior scholars in the field. The ISC Doctoral Consortium aims to offer such a setting for Ph.D. students interested in conducting cutting-edge research in strategy and related areas.
The consortium is organized by Adam Kleinbaum (Dartmouth) and Annamaria Conti (University of Lausanne) and features an international panel of senior faculty members.
The Consortium is comprised of three components:
- Current and future themes in Strategy: panelists will present their views of emerging “hot” topics in the general management field, and students will be invited to suggest ideas and jointly speculate how they may play in the wider audience of strategy research.
- Getting published in top journals: a panel discussions aimed at conveying to students some proven techniques of (1) framing research questions, (2) research design, (3) packaging, (4) dealing with editors and reviewers.
- Thesis Development workshop: a select group of doctoral students will have an opportunity to present their research and receive guidance and commentary from senior faculty. Selection for this workshop is highly competitive. Students admitted to this program will receive a 50% discount on the ISC registration fee (the doctoral consortium will be offered at no charge to all attending students).
If you have questions regarding the doctoral consortium, please contact Adam Kleinbaum ( [email protected] ) and Annamaria Conti ( [email protected] ).
