Join us (virtually) for the 23rd Annual Cognition in the Rough Workshop!
Are you working on cognition-related research? Would you like to discuss your work with major scholars in the field (virtually)? Now is the time to prepare for the 23rd annual “Cognition In The Rough” workshop to be held as part of the virtual Academy of Management conference in August. Please see below for more information, but if you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact our Representatives-at-Large, Chris Myers (email@example.com) and Aimee Hamilton (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Given the virtual format of the Academy meetings this year (due to the COVID-19 pandemic), we will be hosting a virtual version of CIR. Paper submission and selection will proceed as usual, and accepted papers will be grouped into virtual “tables” for discussion with leading scholars in MOC. We will then email each table group (2-3 facilitators and 3-5 paper authors) to arrange a time for their group to meet and discuss the authors’ papers. This meeting time will be during early August, but does NOT have to take place during the official Academy session. We will provide meeting resources (including a Zoom meeting link as needed) to each table group.
We expect that the experience for authors and facilitators will be similar to that of the traditional in-person roundtables, just conducted virtually. Our goal is to maintain the high-quality feedback and engagement that has made CIR famous over the years, and to be sure that authors and facilitators have a positive, developmental experience.
The Cognition in the Rough workshop (CIR) provides an excellent opportunity to discuss your research in an informal, collegial roundtable setting. CIR is intended to help scholars develop a research paper. Each roundtable will have 2-3 facilitators to give feedback on 3-5 early-stage research papers, allowing plenty of time for discussion. Regardless of whether you are a senior or a more junior researcher, this workshop offers you an invaluable opportunity to receive detailed feedback from scholars who are often editors or on the editorial board of top journals.
In particular, many past CIR participants have emphasized how much they have benefited from their participation in the workshop in terms of developing their theoretical models and their planned methodology. This feedback has been instrumental in helping them further develop and polish their research for publication in top academic journals.
Whether this is your first major research project or your fiftieth, this is a chance you won’t want to miss!
We are very pleased that the following scholars have agreed to participate: Neal Ashkanasy, Michelle Barton, Andrea Casey, Marlys Christianson, Kevin Corley, Erik Dane, Viktor Dorfler, Janet Dukerich, Colin Fisher, Margaret Gorman, Gerard Hodgkinson, Jennifer Kish-Gephart, Theresa Lant, Sean Martin, Luis Martins, Alyson Meister, Stephen Mezias, Chet Miller, Frances Milliken, Mandy O’Neill, Kevin Rockmann, Sim Sitkin, David Sluss, Subra Tangirala, and Jeff Thompson.
