Kyoto University Faculty of Economics The 100th Year Anniversary International Conference Series 3
The EGOS and Organization Studies Kyoto Workshop 2019
We invite paper submissions for the EGOS and Organization Studies Workshop to be held on December 13-15 at Kyoto University, Japan. This is an experimental workshop organized by EGOS (European Group for Organizational Studies) and its journal Organization Studies to bridge communities of researchers across geographical, cultural and disciplinary distances. Any topics in and around organization studies are welcomed and particularly, those who target the journal Organization Studies should find this workshop as an invaluable opportunity to craft their papers in dialogue with experienced scholars (see the journal’s aims and scope here). Furthermore, resonant with the city of Kyoto, we especially encourage papers on craft, design, creativity, entrepreneurship and writing among other topics.
Venue: Clock Tower Centennial Hall , Yoshida Campus, Kyoto University
Coordinator: Yutaka YAMAUCHI (Associate Professor)

This was the first workshop of EGOS and the journal Organization Studies to hold in East Asia. The goal was to bridge EGOS and East Asian research communities, centred on Organization Studies and publishing. We received a much larger number of submissions and thus potential number of participants than we had initially expected. The active participation from both communities and the engaged discussions we could observe throughout bear witness of the success in achieving the goal. The workshop was also organized to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Faculty of Economics, Kyoto University.
The paper development workshop (PDW) and the doctoral consortium (DC) were organized on the first day. Daniel Hjorth, Trish Reay and Asli Colpan co-chaired PDW and Innan Sasaki and Takahiro Endo co-chaired DC. The team of mentors consisted of Senior Editors and/or highly experienced reviewers from Organization Studies, and senior scholars from EGOS and from Japan. They helped the authors progress their research and develop their writing. On the second and the third day, authors presented their papers at regular paper sessions. Each paper was given 30 minutes to allow deeper dialogues. We also had three keynote speakers.
