Organization Science

Special Issue on
Emerging Technologies and Organizing

Paper Development Workshop at
UC Santa Barbara, CA: October 10-11, 2019

Call for Abstracts

Emerging technologies such as artificial intelligence, data analytics, robotics, digital platforms, social media, digital traces, blockchain, and 3D printing are increasingly reshaping human action and interaction in domains as varied as consumer credit-risk assessment, product design, platform work, healthcare diagnosis, hiring, predictive policing, custom manufacturing, automated fraud detection, consumer services, and surveillance. From organizational boundaries to employment relationships to individuals' identification with organizations, these technologies are increasingly deployed in almost every process, form, and condition for organizing; their adoption and use are thereby calling into question our fundamental theories and ideas about organizations and organizing. The Special Issue of Organization Science on <Emerging Technologies and Organizing> seeks to advance scholarly understanding of how these theories and ideas need to evolve in the context of these new technologies. Deadline: January 15, 2020. The full call for papers can be found here:


Recognizing the novelty of the special issue theme, we offer a Paper Development Workshop for scholars interested in advancing their work towards eventual submission to the special issue. The aim of the Workshop is to help potential authors improve the fit between their ideas and the theme of the Special Issue and receive initial feedback on the development of the paper.

Participants will be required to discuss their paper abstracts and will also be responsible for reviewing and providing comments on several other paper abstracts presented at the workshop. Attendance at the Workshop is not a precondition for submitting a paper to the special issue, nor will those papers based on abstracts discussed at the Workshop be treated more (or less) favourably in the reviewing process.

The workshop will begin with an optional dinner at 6:00 pm on Thursday October 10 and conclude at 5:00 pm on Friday October 11. The workshop hosts will provide complimentary dinner (on October 10) as well as breakfast, lunch, and coffee/snacks (on October 11) during the workshop. Participants will be responsible for all costs of transportation and lodging.  The hosts will provide suggested lodging in the area.

If you are interested in taking this opportunity to attend the Paper Development Workshop and receive feedback on your early paper ideas, please submit a 5-page abstract by 7:00 pm PDT on August 15, 2019 here: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=sbpdw19.
Authors will need to create an EasyChair account and submit a 150-word abstract together with their extended abstract. Submitters will be notified about whether their abstract is accepted to the workshop by August 25, 2019.
