IV CIMIPYME National Conference & I ICSB México SME International Conference

IV CIMIPYME National Conference & I ICSB México SME International Conference

“Sustainable enterprises and their social commitment”

Puerto Vallarta, Jalisco, México. September 23 – 25, 2015


The First ICSB México SME International Conference and the 4th CIMIPYME Conference: “Sustainable enterprises and its social commitment”; will be held in Puerto Vallarta, Jalisco, from September 23 – 26, 2015.

The conference theme is derived from the interest in promoting research and knowledge contribution to the development of our societies in a global and changing world; in addition, it seeks to strengthen and consolidate research partnerships among various disciplines and institutions in national and international contexts.

Conference objectives:

  • To promote the exchange of knowledge between researchers, designers of public policies for economic development and businesses around the problems and opportunities that small and medium enterprises face in Mexico and Latin America.
  • To establish collaboration links and partnerships among researchers and international organizations concerned with the study and support small and medium enterprises.
  • To set an initial baseline, at the highest level of scientific rigor, on the study of small and medium enterprise in the country and Latin America.
  • To provide the outlines of a relevant and solid scientific research agenda that generates specific contributions for the promotion of small and medium enterprises in the region, and for the design of public policy in this area.

Conference Theme:

The central theme proposed for this conference is “Sustainable enterprises and their social commitment.”

Mexican and Latin American companies generally face new levels and forms of competition arising from the globalization of markets. Along with this, however, the companies in our region must meet the demands and imperatives that society demands with increasing urgency: consideration of sustainability issues and response to social needs that go beyond their market performance.

The companies in our region in many cases still deal with the consequences of opening up their economies to international competition, and struggle to adapt in order to survive and to compete globally. The growing social demand for sustainability and social responsibility poses even greater demands on them.

For these reasons, research in our field should also consider these dimensions as relevant in order to have an impact on the viability of businesses and of the economies in which they operate. What do these demands mean in our context, given that they are originated in industrialized economies, where resources and business dynamics are different? How are they responding to these demands?

Important Dates:

New track proposals: 1 April 30, 2015

Submission proposal: May 30, 2015

Notifications of acceptance by arbitrators: June 30, 2015
