Since its inception in 1995, the Accounting and Management History Conference, now History of Management and Organizations Conference, has remained an essential rendezvous for those interested in history and management. It brings together researchers in accounting, management, history, sociology, law and economics.Like every year all the papers proposed are welcome, however we would like to recommend an axis of reflection. Thus, the Association d’Histoire du Management et des Organisations (AHMO), the Institut de Recherche en Gestion (IRG, Université Paris-Est), and the Université Paris-Est – Marne-La-Vallée, with the support of the Association Francophone de Comptabilité, launch a call for papers on the theme of Innovation.



At the meeting point of technology, user needs and market constraints, innovation has an effect on every function of the enterprise. Four types of innovation are usually distinguished: product innovation, process innovation, marketing or organizational innovation.
During this 19th Management and Organizations History Conference, we would like to tackle the subject of innovation within its historical depth and context, considering innovating practices in their broad diversity.

We suggest here some approaches:

  • study the conception practices related to cognitive and organizational mechanisms at stake in innovation and creativity
  • give an insight into innovative environments, networks and transactions generated by innovating teams
  • question the models and tools of innovation management, in their historical dimension
  • analyze the justification, appropriation and diffusion methods of innovation
  • study the institutions of innovation, in particular through the role of patents
  • describe the emerging markets of innovation, and highlight the tools which enable a greater contact with them
  • At last, the theme of innovation raises the problem of resistance to change by the people involved.

In continuity with what was requested during previous conferences, we are expecting papers of an historical nature that cover the fields of accounting, management as well as strategy, new public management, marketing and communication, especially financial communication.
As has been the practice every year, we welcome all communications that have an historical
