Call for Submissions


by SIOP Administrative Office

2017 Conference on Commitment, Submission Deadline February 15

The 4th Conference on Commitment will be held October 13-15, 2017 in Columbus, OH, USA.

This conference brings together a community of scholars interested in the phenomenon of commitment to share and discuss ideas and findings relating to the conference theme of “Understanding Context, Exploring Contingencies, and Seeking Consensus.”

The purpose of this conference is to advance the literature by promoting leading-edge thinking on all aspects and forms of commitment in organizational contexts regardless of bases, mindsets, or targets (e.g., commitment to organizations–employing or other, people, teams, occupation, goals, change efforts, decisions, values, etc.). Individuals interested in participating on the conference program need to submit an abstract for consideration.

The deadline for receipt of submissions is February 15, 2017.

Submitted proposals may be for a single paper presentation but other formats (e.g., debates, panel discussions, round table discussions, symposia of related papers) are welcome and encouraged. Submissions may address any aspect of commitment in organizational contexts with a preference given to papers with the greatest potential to address the conference themes.
