their cases, WACRA 2002 June 30-July 3, 2002 in Mannheim-Heidelberg,
Germany will feature the Eleventh International WACRA Casewriters'
workshop and Casewriters' Colloquium. Case writers - and prospective
case writers are invited to participate and to submit cases and/or contribute
to the interactive sessions at The Federal University for Public Administration,
Cases, including teaching notes (TN) are submitted to the
Colloquium Director for a double blind peer review for acceptance. Accepted
cases are sent in advance to a panel of expert case writers, case book
authors, and all other participants who signed up for the colloquium. Each
case is discussed by the panel and other participants. You will see the
case editing and improvement process developed and you will assist in perfecting
the refereed cases presented. The format is interactive and lively; everyone's
contribution is welcome and solicited, regardless of previous experience.
This year, cases are solicited from all business disciplines, education,
medical education, law, social work and other disciplines which use case
This activity is primarily for casewriters with some research
experience. This workshop follows a format similar to the colloquium, except
that other casewriters whose cases are being presented are the expert panel.
Submit four copies of your case
before January 15, 2002. Include (at least) the rudiments of a TN.
Submission implies that at least one author will attend the meeting and
present the case. To facilitate the double blind review the authors' names
appear on a cover page only.
From outside the U.S.A. please use airmail. Authors should note that colloquium
and workshop are pre-conference activities (Sunday) and have separate registration.
Cases which still need improvement are solicited. Cases should describe
real organizations and may be disguised. The author's analysis belongs
in the TN which provides users with a brief case description, suggested
course application, teaching objectives, teaching questions and answers.
A discussion section is helpful and may include an extended analysis. Case
outcomes may also be included.
