This really isn’t feasible. Our members use the conference to present new, cutting-edge research findings. The AOM Annual Meeting is an opportunity to receive feedback on that work so it can be submitted for publication and reach external stakeholders who can act on the research findings. By August 2021, many of the authors of papers submitted to AOM 2020 will want to have their research under review at a journal and well on the way to publication.
