The theme for the meeting will be "Innovation and Entrepreneurship: New Perspectives on Business History." The program for the English-language sessions (termed "international sessions") has now been posted on the conference website. According to the organizers,
To further enhance international exchange, the BHSJ decided to organize English-language sessions every two years starting in 2016. The English sessions will take place concurrently with the regularly scheduled Japanese sessions at the annual meeting. The organizers’ aim is to foster cross-­disciplinary knowledge exchange by bringing together scholars who incorporate the themes of innovation and entrepreneurship into their research on business history, economic history, management and economics.
