Conference Venue

The Workshop is held at the JKU Campus in Linz, Austria (https://www.jku.at/en/campus/the-jku-campus). The campus is conveniently accessible by public transportation: A streetcar runs from the train station to the campus. Frequent, fast trains connect Linz to Vienna, Salzburg and Munich (https://tickets.oebb.at/en/ticket/travel?cref=oebb-header).

We also offer a few slots for virtual participation in a development roundtable to provide Early Scholars, who cannot travel to Linz, with an opportunity to give and receive feedback.

Accommodation

Participants are responsible for their travel arrangements and accommodation. We reserved hotel rooms close to campus. Program coordinators will contact accepted participants and, if desired, provide support with booking suitable accommodation.

COVID-19 Pandemic: Safety Measures and Disclaimer

After almost two years of online communication, we seek to provide Early Scholars with an opportunity for face-to-face dialogues and spontaneous personal interaction both during and beyond the official Workshop program. JKU has implemented strict safety protocols to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and will continue to do so. Since it is by far the most effective preventative measure, we kindly ask participants to arrive fully vaccinated, thereby protecting everyone present and easing scholarly and social togetherness. Some uncertainty will however remain: should free travel to and from Austria not be possible in November, the
Workshop will have to be cancelled. We provide an update on the COVID-19 situation together with the notifications of acceptance by October 10.

Longitudinal Data Analysis: Event History Models
– 7. bis 10. September 2021 vrstl. in München –
Prof. Dr. Nikolaus Beck (Università della Svizzera Italiana)

The life course of organizations as well as individuals is characterized by a succession of important events. Organizations change their strategies, their structure, their leadership etc. and might cease to exist at some point in time. Individuals move from one job to another, climb up the career ladder, or get fired. These events indicate transitions from a certain origin state, e.g. an organization before a change of the CEO, to a certain destination state, here: the same organization with a new CEO. The best empirical tool for the analysis of these transitions are techniques of event history analysis. These methods, which belong to the wider class of longitudinal data analysis, are tremendously important in management research. An impressive amount of studies in this field addresses research questions, which are related to transitions from one state to another one.
This course aims at providing students with the most relevant techniques of event history analysis. At the end of this course, students should be able to understand the theoretical concepts of event history analysis as well as to apply these methods by themselves.

Die Anmeldefrist endet am 2. August 2021.

2111MUE03
Philosophy of Science
– 23. bis 26. November 2021 in Berlin –
Rolf Brühl (ESCP Business School Berlin)
Thomas Wrona (Technische Universität Hamburg)

Die wissenschaftstheoretische Analyse ist eine Grundlage für die Beurteilung eigener und fremder Forschungsleistungen. Während jedoch bei der Lektüre eines wissenschaftlichen Aufsatzes oder Monographie die eingesetzten Methoden, wie z.B. ein Fragebogen zur Erhebung von Daten oder eine Regressionsanalyse zur Auswertung von Daten, zu dokumentieren sind, wird die zugrunde liegende wissenschaftstheoretische Position häufig nicht einmal erwähnt. Wer sich jedoch mit Begründungsansprüchen wissenschaftlicher Forschung und ihrer Methoden auseinandersetzen will, kommt um eine Beschäftigung mit eben diesen Positionen nicht herum. Insbesondere bei mixed-method-Studien werden zudem solche Expositionen auch von Gutachtern und Journal-Editoren zunehmend eingefordert.

Ziel des Kurses ist es daher, die Teilnehmer und Teilnehmerinnen mit den wesentlichen wissenschaftstheoretischen Strömungen und ihren für die Wissenschaft wesentlichen ontologischen und epistemologischen Positionen vertraut zu machen. Der Einstieg ins Thema erfolgt auf der Basis dreier Leitfragen im Rahmen eines „World Cafés“, die den Verlauf des Kurses strukturieren. Die Grundlagen der Wissenschaftstheorie werden von einem Dozenten vorgestellt und dienen einer gemeinsamen Diskussionsbasis für die verschiedenen Positionen. Anschließend werden die verschiedenen Strömungen der Wissenschaftstheorie und ihre wesentlichen Implikationen für die Forschungsmethoden und das Forschungsdesign durch die Teilnehmenden präsentiert, wobei jeweils Themenschwerpunkte gebildet werden. Die individuellen Präsentationen dienen dann als Grundlage für die anschließende gemeinsame Diskussion und ggf. thematische Erweiterung durch die Dozenten.

Eine wesentliche Zielsetzung des Kurses ist es, für die verschiedenen Strömungen der Wissenschaftstheorie zu sensibilisieren und grundlegende Kenntnisse über verschiedene wissenschaftstheoretische Begründungsstrategien zu vermitteln, um eine kritische Reflektion über die eigene wissenschaftliche Forschung zu ermöglichen. Obwohl der Schwerpunkt des Kurses auf der Diskussion philosophischer (wissenschaftstheoretischer) Positionen liegt, ist es ein weiteres Anliegen des Kurses, deren Bedeutung für die wissenschaftliche Praxis zu thematisieren und anhand praktischer Beispiele zu analysieren.

Die Anmeldefrist endet am 31. Juli 2021.

IHRM Webinar Series with Dave Collings: Global Talent Management, Global Mobility and Covid-19: Where have we been and where are we going?

About this Series

This event is part of a IHRM Webinar Series, organized by the Centre for Global Workforce Strategy at Simon Fraser University (Canada), the Penn State Center for International Human Resource Studies (USA), and ESCP Business School (Europe).

About the Presentation

The Covid-19 pandemic has significantly disrupted almost every industry and organization. As organizations that operate across national borders, multinational enterprises have been particularly impacted by the pandemic. Drawing insights from ongoing research on the role of HR in responding to the crisis and also on the role of learning and development in enabling the post-Covid workforce this session will reflect on what the pandemic means for global talent management and global mobility. It will provide some key thoughts on the directions which future research in this space could evolve to better understand these important phenomena.

The presentation will be presented by David Collings, Professor of HRM at Dublin City University Business School in Ireland. The session will be moderated by Marion Festing, Professor of Human Resource Management and Intercultural Leadership at ESCP Business School, Berlin, Germany.

Call for Applications: EGOS Pre-Colloquium Post-Doctoral & Early Career Scholars Workshop 2021

Paths to a Meaningful Career

The progress of research in organizational studies relies upon the commitment and the creativity of advanced PhD students, post-doctoral fellows and junior scholars who explore new questions, new methods and new phenomena. EGOS puts special emphasis on supporting the academic development of younger scholars and their positioning and integration in the academic community/ies.

The purpose of the EGOS pre-Colloquium Post-Doctoral & Early Career Scholars Workshop is to facilitate the academic socialization of junior scholars. We aim to provide an arena for explorations of challenges faced by early career scholars relating to the different dimensions of academic work, including research (and funding), teaching, administrative duties and community service.

This workshop is an active exchange, based on a dialogue among junior and senior academics that seeks to strengthen junior scholars’ involvement with the EGOS com­munity and to help them in finding their ways in academia. It will be taking place on Tuesday, July 6, 2021, prior to the main 37th EGOS Colloquium.

Content and Objectives

To our understanding, the main challenge in an academic career is to balance between personal passions and preferences on the one hand, and the needs of and pressures from various parties on the other, while sustaining a meaningful career over time. How do we manage these conflicting demands, and how do we achieve impact and relevance in our careers? These questions nag any academic, let alone early career scholars, and so we aim to create a space for their discussion.

In 2021, the pre-Colloquium Post-Doctoral & Early Career Scholars Workshop will focus on presentations, discussions and small-group workshops dedicated to:

  • Developing a better understanding of the various dimensions of academic work, their rationale, and their importance in various stages of your academic career
  • Reflecting upon your identity and voice as a researcher, an educator and a citizen of various academic communities (for example, within your institution, EGOS, AoM, etc.), with an opportunity for hands-on exchange about diverse career paths and ways to achieve relevance and impact
  • Thinking of your career, and the interplay of serendipity and strategic action in navigating it, including hearing the experiences of senior scholars who will reflect on their career paths, highlighting failures, dead ends and missed opportunities – and what they have learned from them – as much as about what brought them motivation and joy

Application Guidelines

To be considered for participation in the pre-Colloquium Post-Doctoral & Early Career Scholars Workshop 2021, applicants should have completed their doctoral dissertation within the last five academic years (excluding maternity leave or similar).

Please apply for admission to the workshop by Tuesday, January 12, 2021 at the latest and upload – via the EGOS website – a single PDF file that contains the following mandatory information:

  • A letter of application, containing name, affiliation, postal & e-mail address, as well as an explaining your motivation to participate
  • An extended abstract (1 page) outlining your main area of work or a current paper project
  • Your curriculum vitae
  • An aspirational curriculum vitae, explaining where you would like to see yourself in 10–15 years in terms of your academic achievements and focus. This can be written as a free text or as a list-like CV, as long as you also explain your choices and reflect upon the major challenges you will face in your efforts to move from you current CV to your desired one (2 pages at maximum)

Please note!

  • Participants in the workshop will be selected based on their potential benefit from – and contribution to – the conversations in the workshop.
  • Applicants will be notified of acceptance by March 1, 2021. Given the interactive nature of the workshop, the number of participants will be limited. Please keep in mind that registration for the workshop must be submitted separately from your registration for the main 37th EGOS Colloquium.
  • Upon acceptance to the workshop, participants will be given the opportunity to revise and finalize their extended abstract and aspirational CV up until June 1, 2021 (fixed deadline) and upload it via the EGOS website.
  • Between June 1 and the workshop (July 6), each participant will be asked to review at least one extended abstract and the CVs of another participant.
  • We expect your full commitment once your application has been accepted and you have agreed to participate: a late cancellation effectively blocks an opportunity for one of your colleagues.

Participants are strongly encouraged to apply for the pre-Colloquium workshops offered on Wednesday, July 7, 2021, as well as to consider the submission of a paper to one of the sub-themes at the main 37th EGOS Colloquium 2021 in Amsterdam. All details are – respectively: will soon be – available on the EGOS website.

PhD Workshop: „How to design surveys and experiments for top tier publishing”

Being able to design experiments and surveys is a key qualification for anyone who wants to do any type of behavioral research. However, despite a lot of effort and resources invested, often experiments and surveys are designed suboptimally or are outright flawed. This also means that the chances to publish such studies in top-tier journals will be seriously limited. In this four-day PhD (and junior faculty) seminar, we will teach how to design and conduct experiments and surveys that rigorously test theory.

Additional emphasis will be laid on typical challenges when designing, recruiting for, analyzing, and writing up experiments and surveys. This will also include coverage of online studies.

The seminar consists of a mix of extensive prereading of key articles, to-the-point in-class discussion, and actual designing of own research projects within the seminar using Questback or Qualtrics and the Amazon’s MTurk platform.

At the end, participants will be able to confidently design their own behaviorally-oriented studies, and potentially already have a running start with one of them.

Lecturers: Niels Van Quaquebeke & Christian Tröster

Guest lecture by the AMJ Editor in Chief,  Laszlo Tihanyi

Date: Dec 7th to 10th

Language: Seminar language is English.

Location: If the situation continues to allow, the seminar will take place on the campus of the KLU in Hamburg, strictly following our COVID19 hygiene plan. Else we will prepare an online version.

13th International Research Workshop „Methods for PhD“

Empirical research is seeking through methodological processes to discover, hopefully, nontrivial facts and insights. Beside choosing a topic and grounding an idea in theory, empirical research consists of gathering and analysing data as well as presenting results in scientific contexts in order to contribute new issues to the body of acquired knowledge – not only to someone‘s own but also to that of others.

Our workshop tackles these steps of your research project:

  • Gathering data via (un)structured interviews and analysing standardised survey data and
  • using the computer for qualitative data analysis and as a tool for statistics.

These steps will strengthen the cooperation in empirical research to boost and streamline one’s project.

The 13th International Research Workshop will take place at the Akademie Sankelmark (near Flensburg) and the University of Southern Denmark (SDU) – Campus Kolding from 15 – 20 September 2019. The workshop programme is online now. You are welcome to register for the Newsletter to get updated information on the International Research Workshop and other PhD related activities.
