The purpose of the Conference is that of constituting an interactive research symposium bridging the domains of management, information systems and organisational studies. Scholars in these domains are invited to submit contributions pertaining to prospective research, preliminary findings, or completed research work.

The Conference aims, as per the tradition established over the past colloquia, to constitute an informal setting in which to discuss the themes at the centre of academic debate in our disciplines.

The theme of the Conference for this year is Organisational practices within contemporary landscapes. Focus will be on organisational settings as complex entangled networks, and how these manifest in different contemporary landscapes.

This encompasses not only private and public sectors but also encapsulates organisational practices at a societal level. In this domain, intercultural perspectives on organisational dynamics are particularly relevant to discussion, as well as reflections on how the very concepts of knowledge generation and learning processes evolve as a result of the new globalising landscape.

Possible topics for contributions include, but are not limited to:

  • Sociological approaches to the construction of self in organisational practices;
  • Intercultural perspectives on spaces and places of identity in organisational settings;
  • Entanglement of learning and knowledge generation in organisations;
  • Work and employment in contemporary organisations;
  • Interdisciplinary studies of management, information systems and organisations;
  • Materiality and organisations: sociotechnical arrangements and practices.
