    We are excited to announce the Professional Development Workshop focused on social media research at the Academy of Management Meeting. The PDW consists of two parts:

    1. Input presentations by leading scholars on social media research in organization and management scholarship + Q&A (Confirmed speakers: Rhonda Reger and Emmanuelle Vaast). Open for all meeting-registered participants (50 minutes)
    2. Thematic roundtables, each facilitated by well-known scholars, which will also focus upon "challenges" that researchers are experiencing in methodology (quant and qual), positioning, conceptualizing, and publishing their work. Participants need to submit a 1-page document with an abstract of a project and a challenge statement that outlines which issue(s) they would like to discuss at the roundtables. Reserved for paper-applicants (60 minutes)

    Confirmed speakers and facilitators:

    • Rhonda Reger, University of North Texas
    • Emmanuelle Vaast, McGill University
    • Anastasiya Zavyalova, Rice University
    • Michael Etter, King's College London
    • Itziar Castello, Surrey University
    • Tim Hannigan, Alberta School of Business
