EGOS and Organization Studies Workshop in Kyoto 2019

Posted 2019-09-01

We invite paper submissions for the EGOS and Organization Studies Workshop to be held on December 13-15 at Kyoto University, Japan.

This is an inaugural workshop organized by EGOS (European Group for Organizational Studies) and its journal Organization Studies. The workshop is co-sponsored by EGOS, Copenhagen Business School Entrepreneurship Platform, Kyoto University Faculty of Economics, and the W. Maurice Young Centre for Entrepreneurship & Venture Capital Research at the University of British Columbia. Partnerships include the Academic Association for Organization Science (Japan), the Academy of Management Organization and Management Theory Division, Kyoto University Graduate School of Management, and Kyoto University Design School.

With this new Workshop we seek to bridge communities of researchers across geographical, cultural and disciplinary distances. Any topics in and around organization studies are welcomed. Furthermore, resonant with the city of Kyoto, we especially encourage papers on craft, design, creativity, entrepreneurship and writing among other topics.

Paper Development Workshop and Doctoral Consortium will be held on December 13, Friday afternoon, and then paper sessions and keynotes on December 14 and 15.

Throughout the Workshop several experienced editors and reviewers from Organization Studies (as well as other journals) will be present and actively taking part in supporting the process of paper development.

Selected doctoral students from outside Japan who will present at the workshop in the Paper Development Workshop, Regular Paper Sessions or Doctoral Consortium will be provided with a travel stipend, helping to partially cover flights and accommodation. Students can indicate their need for the stipend at the time of registration.

To submit and participate in this workshop, you do not need to be an EGOS member, although you are encouraged to join.
