Plan Ahead: European Group for Organizational Studies 2008 Colloquium

The European Group for Organizational Studies (EGOS) is holding their 24thColloquium from July 10–12, 2008 at Vrije University in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. The colloquium theme is Upsetting Organizations. The submission deadline for abstracts is January 13, 2008.

The colloquium is organized by sub-theme. Unlike a conference where you move from session to session across various conference tracks, in the EGOS colloquium, you attend a sub-theme. It is like a multi-day workshop where you hear multiple papers in the sub-theme of the colloquium.

There is one sub-theme in particular that will be of special interest to OCIS members. Sub-theme 35: Working Across Boundaries: The Upsetting Effects of Offshoring on the Dynamics of Knowledge Intensive Work.

The convenors of this sub-theme are members of the OCIS (Organizational Communication and Information Systems) division of the Academy of Management. Our purpose in organizing this sub-theme is to promote the internationalization of our community and to open a fruitful dialogue with organization and IS researchers from all over the world.
