Call for Papers
Third International Conference on Emotions and
Organizational Life

Researchers interested in studying emotions in organizational settings are invited to submit papers for the Third International Conference on Emotions and Organizational Life, to be held at Bond University, Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia, July 1416, 2002. The conference follows three international conferences in the region: 6th IFSAM, Surfers Paradise, July 1013; XXV Congress of the International Association of Applied Psychology (ICAP), Singapore, July 812; XV International Sociological Association Conference, Brisbane, July 713. The conference is organized by the Emonet e-mail discussion group, an international network of scholars working in this field, established in January 1997.

The primary aim of the conference is to bring together scholars who study emotions in organizational life, and to provide a forum for presentation of some of the significant advances that have been made in our understanding of this important area. It is intended that the conference papers will be considered for inclusion in a third edited book of papers that will help to define further this emerging field.

Papers are invited on any topic of relevance to the study of emotions at work, including the determinants of emotion; the nature and description of emotion; processes and effects of emotion at the organizational, team, and individual levels. Both theoretical and empirical papers are welcome. Papers that take a multidisciplinary perspective will be especially welcome.

The deadline for receipt of papers is March 31, 2002. Papers should be sent to the addresses indicated below, and will be subject to blind review. The format is to follow the submission guidelines for the Academy of Management. We encourage innovative submissions, but all must satisfy the requirements of rigorous scholarly discourse. A brief statement of your preference for presentation format should also accompany submission of papers. It is anticipated that a wide variety of delivery styles will be used, including panel discussion, workshops, and traditional presentations.

Authors who will be unable to attend the conference are also invited to submit their papers to be considered for inclusion in the book, whose lead editor will be Charmine Hrtel. These papers will be available for work-shopping at the conference and will be subject to the same review process as the conference papers. Authors submitting their papers for consideration should indicate whether they wish to have their work reviewed for presentation at the conference, the book, or both. At least one of the authors of a paper accepted for the conference must be present at the conference.

Papers for the third conference are to be submitted electronically using any recognized word processing software (e.g. Word, WordPerfect). Papers from the US and Canada should be sent to Wilfred J. Zerbe, e-mail Zerbe@mgmt.ucalgary.ca. Papers from elsewhere should be sent to Neal M. Ashkanasy, The University of Queensland, e-mail N.Ashkanasy@gsm.uq.edu.au. For further information about the conference, please contact Neal Ashkanasy (+617) 3365-7499, fax (+617) 3365-6988, or Wilf Zerbe (403) 220-3005, fax (403) 282-0095.
