The full paper submission deadline is February 3, 2017 and papers are sought in the following tracks: Strategic Retailing; International Retailing; Branding & Private Labels; Retail Management; Retail Marketing; Consumer Behaviour; E-Commerce in Retailing; History of Retail & Distribution; and Supply Chain Management.

The conference represents a significant event for the School of Retail and Services Management which hosts the Arthur Ryan Retail Centre and has extensive engagements with leading retailers in Ireland.  The School has also established itself as a lead member of a major international network of retail schools that includes the University of Stirling (UK), Massey University (New Zealand), Oxford Institute of Retail Management (UK), and Ryerson University (Canada).
