Stanford's Center for Work, Technology, and Organizations invites manuscript submissions for their 2nd Changing Nature of Work workshop taking place on Stanford's campus October 16 & 17, 2021*. A few years ago, we held a small workshop that was primarily focused on developing the field. This follow-on workshop will be focused on research and paper development since there are now many more scholars working in this space. This research development workshop will focus on improving works-in-process and advancing the study of emerging technologies and the changing nature of work. Our intent is to provide an opportunity for participants from all levels of academia to share and receive feedback on their developing manuscripts. It will be relatively small, with the expectation of less than 20 papers accepted.
The nature of work is constantly changing, particularly how emerging technologies interact with work and organizations. Recent shifts include the integration of technologies such as artificial intelligence, data analytics, robotics, blockchain, and 3D printing, as well as recent changes in remote work. The way that organizations engage in work underpins many of the fundamental theories and ideas about organizations making it a critical area of research. In addition to providing feedback on specific papers, this research development workshop brings together scholars from across this topic area to discuss some of the challenges of studying emerging technologies and leverage the knowledge within the community.
Authors of accepted papers (up to 2 per paper) will be invited to participate in the workshop. Participants will discuss their papers and will also be responsible for reviewing and providing comments on 3-4 other papers accepted for the workshop.
The workshop will begin with an optional dinner at 6:00 pm on Thursday October 14 and conclude at 12:30 pm on Saturday October 16 (followed by an optional lunch). The workshop hosts will provide complimentary meals during the workshop, as well as lodging for the invited participants. Participants will be responsible for all transportation costs.
