The Communication, Digital Technologies, and Organizations (CTO) Division invites submissions for Professional Development Workshops (PDWs) at the 84th Annual Meeting of the Academy of Management (AOM 2024) in Chicago, Illinois, USA, 9-13th August 2024. PDW sessions may take place any time between Friday, 9 August to Sunday, 11 August 2024. PDWs are an opportunity to be innovative, discuss unresolved questions, learn or teach best practices in teaching and research, debate future directions for research, and organize novel activities that bring the expertise and experience of CTO members to bear on the challenges that we all face in our daily professional lives.
We seek sessions that recognize the division’s interdisciplinary approach to further the understanding of the behavioral, social, technical, and economic issues at the intersection of communication, digital technology, and organizing. The CTO Division is actively seeking PDW proposals that address important organizational issues involving anything digital, including artificial intelligence and machine learning, digital platforms, data analytics, social media, and information and communication technologies of all sorts. PDWs around the All Academy Theme of “Innovating for the Future: Policy, Purpose, and Organizations” are especially encouraged. Workshops can take many forms such as tutorials, town hall meetings, breakout sessions, debates, roundtables, tours or research incubators – as long as they have a clear interactive component. Proposals will be evaluated on their ability to draw an audience from CTO and across the Academy, innovativeness, and potential impact on the professional success of participants.
Workshops can be of any duration. Regardless of the requested duration for a submitted PDW, the PDW Chair may adjust the session duration if they feel that a shorter or longer duration better suits the session.
PDW submissions must be made through the Academy's Submission Center website. The submission deadline is Tuesday, 9 January 2024 at 17:00 ET (UTC-5/GMT-5) . If you are interested in proposing a PDW session, please contact PDW Chair Roberta Bernardi to get feedback and further develop your idea for a PDW session.
