Call For Papers

The annual INFORMS Marketing Science Conference brings together leading marketing scholars, industry executives and representatives of non-profit organizations. The conference is held under the auspices of the INFORMS Society for Marketing Science (ISMS) sub-branch. This is an important forum to present cutting-edge research and engage in intellectual exchange.

The 2013 INFORMS Marketing Science Conference will be hosted by Özyeğin University in Istanbul, Turkey. The Özyeğin University Marketing Faculty cordially invites you to submit the abstracts of your research papers, present your work, and actively participate in the conference. The conference is preceded by the ISMS Doctoral Consortium (for doctoral students only).

The conference will be held at ‘Swissôtel The Bosphorus’, a five-star luxury hotel right in the center of Istanbul on the European banks of the Bosphorus between July 11, 2013, Thursday and  July 13, 2013, Saturday.

The conference will also provide you with the opportunity to visit magnificent Istanbul. The city unfolds on the hills along the Bosphorus, which meanders through the only city in the world to span two continents: Europe and Asia. The great palaces, mosques and churches, museums, and fortresses will enchant you. The nightlife is unrivalled, vibrant bars and sidewalk cafes keep the city buzzing till the early hours. You can easily uncover the city’s historic past while enjoying its distinctively modern edge and natural beauty. Beyond Istanbul, there are a multitude of treasures to enjoy in Turkey: the ancient Greek city of Ephesus, the fairy tale landscape of Cappadocia, the shores of the Aegean Sea, to name just a few.

We are looking forward to welcoming you in Istanbul for an intellectually stimulating and exciting conference.
