APROS/EGOS Conference

“Spaces, Constraints, Creativities: Organization and Disorganization”

December 9–11, 2015

Hosted by
CMOS (Centre for Management and Organisation Studies)
UTS Business School, University of Technology, Sydney

EGOS (European Group for Organizational Studies) and APROS (Asia Pacific Researchers in Organization Studies) have run many conferences independently. On 9-11 December 2015 they will hold a joint conference hosted by CMOS, a key research centre embedded in the UTS Business School. Fashioned in the spirit of business school’s whose branding is sharply focused on the future, the School’s new Frank Gehry designed building is a symbol of the new generation of business education where design and integrated thinking will be core to the teaching, learning and research experience. Designed with a focus on the future.

The new and exciting space suggested to the organizers in CMOS themes concerning how space, creativity and innovation become entangled with strategies and relations of power and structure, which have been creatively developed in the sub-themes and their call for papers.
The sub-themes and call for papers are accessible in the side bar. We look forward to seeing you in Sydney, 2015.
