Conference context

The global economy is expected to grow at 3.2 percent in 2019 against a difficult backdrop that includes intensified US-China trade and technology tensions as well as prolonged uncertainty on Brexit (IMF Report, 2019). Although Indian economy has generally been less prone to external forces than many others, we still need to contend with the larger than typical risks in the global economy. Escalating trade and technology tensions, the possibility of a protracted risk-off episode that exposes financial vulnerabilities accumulated over years of low interest rates, geopolitical tensions, and mounting disinflationary pressures that make adverse shocks more persistent are the downside risks prevailing in the world economy This has increased the degree of uncertainty baffling policy makers of economies and managers of corporates. Thus, the ever-evolving environment of business necessitates the advances in management practices. 

Most of the conventional management practices are no longer effective in doing business. Where the finance professionals are exploring the application of technologies like artificial intelligence, block chain, and data analytics in creating innovative financial products and services and managing associated risk, marketing professionals are experimenting with novel means to understand consumer behaviour. At the same time, HR experts are designing new roles and exercising the innovative HR practices to manage the diversified work force. This is precisely the theme of the conference. 

ICAMP 2020 aims at providing a forum to discuss the advances and novelty in management practices in all the key functional areas namely finance, marketing, human resource, operations and international business. The conference is also open for discussion on contemporary issues and practices in multidisciplinary areas. Thus, ICAMP 2020 intends to unearth the issues and trends that lie deep inside the business ecosystem and deliberate possible solutions for the corporate to thrive.
