    Organization science is an interdisciplinary endeavor, bringing together scholars who do "fundamental research about organizations, including their processes, structures, technologies, identities, capabilities, forms, and performance." The history of the journal (and the broader field of organizational research) has strong links to other academic disciplines, including psychology and sociology. Psychology's emphasis on individual behavior has informed research on the behavioral microfoundations of organizations, whereas sociological perspectives on society and institutions inform theories about the social context in which organizations operate.


    The purpose of this conference is to bring together scholars who contribute to organization science and simultaneously engage the disciplines of psychology and sociology. Engagement is a two-way street. In some cases, organizational scholars borrow insights from the disciplines to enrich our theories of organizations, but at the same time empirical research on organizations shapes the disciplines in significant ways. The conference encourages submissions of original research of both types: scholarship that both draws from and extends theories in psychology and sociology.


    Please submit your proposals to OSWC2019@gmail.com. December 30, 2018 is the deadline for proposals or individual applications to attend.


    As has been the case in the past, much of the plenary program is created from proposals and suggestions received from scholars wishing to participate in OSWC. Most authors will be invited to join another highly acclaimed OSWC tradition---the open-ended, evening-long (7–10pm) Interactive Poster Sessions. 50% of the OSWC participation slots are reserved for participants new to the conference (have not attended in the previous three years). Invitations to attend will be extended by the program committee for OSWC24 by January 14, 2019.
