Online Only in 2022 // Blended 2023

Due to current international travel restrictions and global health realities, we have decided to continue with only the online component of the 2022 conference.
We are nonetheless excited to announce the online conference will be delivered on the CGScholar platform – developed by the Common Ground Media Lab, the research and technology arm of Common Ground Research Networks.
We are moving to bring the conference experience into the digital era. All presenters will be given Presenter Pages: linked to profiles on CGScholar, displaying abstract summary, thematic connection to panelists and peers, ability to add digital media: video, sound, other files. As an alternative, you can also participate online with Audience Passes. And finally, we'll be offering innovative online social spaces to frame serendipitous encounters for personal and professional growth.
All "Blended" registration types will be able to present online in 2022 and in-person (and/or) online in 2023.
This way we build for our Research Network Members flexible, and at the same time resilient, spaces for communication, engagement, and participation.

Themes and Special Focus

Founded in 1993, the Organization Studies Research Network comes together around a common concern for, and a shared interest to explore, new possibilities in knowledge, culture and change management, within the broader context of the nature and future of organizations and their impact on society. We seek to build an epistemic community where we can make linkages across disciplinary, geographic, and cultural boundaries.

The Twenty-second International Conference on Knowledge, Culture, and Change in Organizations calls for research addressing the following annual themes and special focus:

  • 2022 Special Focus—Organizational Memetics: Nature-Centered Perspectives on Organizations
  • Theme 1: Organizational Intangibles and Tangible Value
  • Theme 2: Knowledge Economies as the Constant
  • Theme 3: Organizations as Knowledge Makers
  • Theme 4: The Value of Culture and the Demand of Change
