Call for papers

The Faculty of Arts of Palacky University Olomouc and the Department of Applied Economics would like to invite you to the 15th anniversary of the international scientific conference Knowledge on Economics and Management 2019 subheaded Profit or Purpose that shall be held in Olomouc September 5-6, 2019.

To make profit ceases to be the main goal of many businesses. They focus on a higher purpose, a way to make the world a better place. The “Why” a business operates is important also for all stakeholders.

We invite all researchers, experts, and practitioners dealing with the issue of profit and/or purpose, to participate in this event and to join the discussion.

The conference takes place under the auspices of Prof. PhDr. Zdeněk Pechal, CSc., Dean of the Faculty of Arts, Palacky University Olomouc.

The conference program is divided into the following sections:

  • Knowledge management, general management and marketing
  • Public economy, taxes and finance
  • Operational research
  • Business
  • Young economists – a section for BA, MA and PhD students of economics

Conference proceedings will be published electronically with an ISBN and sent to Web of Science to be evaluated.

Conference languages are English and Czech (see Programme), contributions to the conference proceedings are accepted in English only.

It is necessary to register first.
