40th EGOS Colloquium

Crossroads for Organizations: Time, Space, and People

University of Milano-Bicocca

4-6 July 2024

The purpose of the 40th EGOS Colloquium 2024 – hosted by the University of Milan-Bicocca – is to investigate what elements represent the crucial crossroads for organizations of the present and the next future.


Sub-theme 81: Trust and Distrust at the Crossroads: Managing the Proliferation of Technology for the Good of Employees, Organizations, and Society

With this sub-theme, we suggest that trust and distrust research can provide fruitful and fresh perspectives to examine if, how, and when technology affects humans positively or negatively.

How to submit your paper

Short papers should focus on the main ideas of the paper, this means, they should explain the purpose of the paper, theoretical background, the research gap that is addressed, the approach taken, the methods of analysis (in empirical papers), main findings, and contributions. In addition, it is useful to indicate clearly how the paper links with the sub-theme and the overall theme of the Colloquium, although not all papers need to focus on the overall theme. Creativity, innovativeness, theoretical grounding, and critical thinking are typical characteristics of EGOS papers.

Your short paper should comprise 3,000 words (incl. references, appendices and other material).
