XV Call for Papers International Congress on Teaching Cases in Public and Nonprofit Marketing - 2023
The International Association of Public and Nonprofit Marketing (AIMPN/IAPNM), in collaboration with the
University of León (Spain), the National University of Distance Education UNED (Spain), and the University of
the Pacific (Peru), is organizing the 15th International Congress on Teaching Cases in Public and Nonprofit
Marketing. The congress, under the slogan “Looking into the Future: Conscious of Responsible Production and Consumption”, will take place in a hybrid format (in-person and online) on December 15, 2023. The congress is open to academics, experts, undergraduate, postgraduate, and doctoral students interested in any of the various branches of public and nonprofit marketing, as well as other related disciplines or aspects such as corporate social responsibility, sustainability, circular economy, etc.
TYPES OF CONTRIBUTIONS
Three types of contributions are welcome, either by authors from the same university or institution or by
teams involving interdisciplinary and/or international collaboration:
- Public and nonprofit marketing teaching cases: these contributions are developed by teams consisting, as a general rule, of one to five undergraduate, postgraduate, or doctoral students, under the guidance of an
academic tutor. Depending on the case content, a second academic tutor and/or an additional tutor from the professional field (company, public entity, or non-governmental organization) can be involved.
These cases should focus on actions or initiatives of companies, public entities, or non-governmental
organizations that are considered noteworthy by the authors in terms of their interest and impact. The
approximate length of the cases is between 8 and 12 pages, according to the following structure: abstract,
introduction, development, discussion questions, conclusions, and bibliography. Specific guidelines regarding the content as well as other formatting details are provided in a template available on the website
https://casos-aimpn.org/, where examples of cases from previous editions of the congress can also be found.
- Senior public and nonprofit marketing cases: these contributions are developed by teams consisting of one
to five academics and/or experts. Like those ones of the previous category, these cases should focus on
actions or initiatives of companies, public entities, or non-governmental organizations that are considered
noteworthy by the authors in terms of their interest and impact. The approximate length of these cases is
between 10 and 15 pages, according to the same structure and format indications.
- Innovative teaching experiences related to public and nonprofit marketing and/or other directly related
disciplines or aspects: these contributions are developed by teams consisting of one to five authors from the
academic field. The content should be related to the presentation of experiences developed and
implemented in the educational environment, following an innovative and/or inspiring methodology capable of guiding, motivating, and contributing to the emergence of similar experiences, or being replicable. The approximate length of these contributions is between 10 and 15 pages, following the same format guidelines as the previous two types.
The following thematic areas are suggested (but not limited to):
- Marketing of nonprofit organizations and entities.
- Public sector marketing.
- Political and electoral marketing.
