Call for Abstracts: 5th ANNUAL PEOPLE AND ORGANIZATIONS CONFERENCE
September 28th and 29th, 2012
The Wharton School, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

OVERVIEW

The purpose of the “People and Organizations” Conference is to bring attention to research on work and employment.  We aim to continue to build and support the community of scholars from management, industrial relations, organization theory, organizational behavior, sociology, economics and strategy who share common interests and seek a forum for interdisciplinary exchange.

Once again, we particularly welcome papers on the following broad set of topics:
- New developments in work and employment relationships
- New insights on inequality in the workplace
- Explanations of workplace practices and their effects on firms and workers
- Explorations of the structure and determinants of careers in and across modern workplaces
- Studies of human and social capital issues related to business strategy and performance.

In addition to a plenary program, we plan to continue our practice of roundtable sessions for specialized topics or work in progress.

Submissions:

If you are interested in participating in the conference, please send an email to Nancy Permsap at the Wharton Center for Human Resources - This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it by June 30th. Attach an abstract (800 words or less) as a Word document. Please DO NOT include names or affiliations in this word document as we will evaluate abstracts anonymously. Instead, please include the cover page information for your paper (paper title and the names, affiliations and email addresses of all co-authors) in the body of the email.

Submissions from all fields and disciplines are welcome.  We are particularly seeking studies that have not yet been published nor accepted for publication.  We are less interested in studies that have no empirical results, however, unless they are explicitly theoretical. We have a special interest in studies that relate to new developments in issues around work and employment.

Attendance:

If you would like to attend the conference and not present a paper, please let us know by June 30th as well.  Spaces are limited, especially for overnight accommodations, but we will do our best within logistics constraints.  In the interests of maximizing participation with limited budgets, we hope that participants can handle their own travel expenses.

Questions:

Feel free to contact any of the members of the organizing committee with questions.
