ISC at a glance

The Israel Strategy Conference (ISC) is a voluntary initiative, not affiliated with any institution, aimed at promoting academic excellence and advancing the field of strategic management in Israel. Towards this end, ISC invites highly prestigious keynote speakers, subjects paper proposal submissions to a very strict double-blind review process, and offers the prestigious ISC Best Paper Award which carries a $1,000 cash value.

ISC provides an opportunity for scholars to exchange ideas and advance their research in strategic management and related fields such as entrepreneurship and international business. ISC is held every couple of years and is hosted by different Israeli universities on a rotating basis.

ISC was founded by Niron Hashai, Dovev Lavie, and Ithai Stern, with the help and advice of the late Avi Fiegenbaum, Avi Meshulach, and Zur Shapira. The first conference was held in Jerusalem on December 2007 with more than a hundred participants from all over the world. The second conference, which was held in Tel Aviv, drew more than 130 attendees. The third conference was held in Be'er Sheva with a similar number of attendees. The fourth conference was held in Haifa and had over 140 attendees. The fifth conference was held in Tel Aviv and had over 160 attendees.We hope that the current conference in Jerusalem and the ones to follow will continue to draw a growing number of participants.

ISC offers a variety of opportunities to become involved as special session organizers, keynote speakers, panelists, presenters, discussants, volunteers, and sponsors.
