Welcome to ICMR 2023 - International Conference on Management Research, organised by the Department of Management Studies, Indian Institute of Technology Madras. The conference will give management scholars and practitioners a stage to present their research work to a global audience. Additionally, the conference offers a forum for networking among researchers, industry practitioners and international participants.


The ICMR 2023 Conference is organised by the Department of Management Studies, Indian Institute of Technology Madras (IIT Madras), Chennai, India, scheduled to be held from 16 to 18 November,  2023 at the IIT Madras campus. We would consider an online presentation (only for international participants) based on request.

The Conference

"Unchecking the Default:
The Other Side of Everything!"

The conference theme of “Unchecking the Default: The Other Side of Everything!” challenges us to look at fresh perspectives to uncheck what has been established as the normal. This opens up a realm of possibilities where we can push our boundaries, question what we consider to be the 'truth', and counter conventional wisdom. By critically examining default beliefs and assumptions, we can uncover hidden inefficiencies, biases, and limitations that hinder our progress.


Embracing this mindset entails more than a mere shift in perspective; it necessitates being ok to be ‘wrong’ and to have made an error, going against our initial ingrained assumptions, actively unlearning old beliefs, and embracing the possibility of unconventional thinking. By consciously considering the exact opposite of what we have assumed, we open the door to unexplored realms of creativity. This deliberate exploration of uncharted territories can lead to the emergence of entirely new and innovative ideas that were previously unimaginable. By breaking free from our default assumptions, we create space for transformative and ground breaking concepts to flourish.


We invite you to contribute to the conference by providing new insights and transformative perspectives, breaking away from default modes of thinking across various fields in management.
