About the Cross Cultural Research Conference:
The conference began in 1981 as the "Cross Cultural Research Symposium" in New Orleans at Tulane University under the direction of Professors Charles Keown and Arch Woodside. The conference was then held every 3 years in Honolulu until the 6th Symposium in Hong Kong, which marked the move to biannual conferences and also the internationalization of the conference. The conference will continue to alternate between Hawaii and a non-U.S. site on a biannual basis. The 2007 conference was hosted in Honolulu, Hawaii.
Competitive papers, as well as special session proposals, on current topics in cross cultural research and related areas are invited. The complete call for papers and downloads are at the conference website:
