ODC-ISEOR 2018 Call for Papers



Since 2006, several International Conferences and Doctoral Seminars of the « Organizational Development and Change » Division of the Academy of Management have been organized by ISEOR at University Jean Moulin. They have been very successful and allowed core faculty and Ph.D. students from 25 countries to present 730 papers. In fact, these events allow to highlight the relevance of European and transatlantic cooperation in terms of sharing knowledge and experience in fields such as:

  • Research on change theories and performance assessing methods.
  • Strengthening the links between theory and practice: action-research, intervention-research, “appreciative inquiry” etc.
  • Comparing European and American doctoral programs in the field of organizational development and consulting.
  • Preparing a Ph.D. or a “Doctorate in Business Administration” (DBA) for practitioners


Terms of the 2018 conference and doctoral seminar:

Two types of presentations are expected:

  • Communications, conferences, testimonies submitted by core faculty
  • Communications developed by Master’s or Ph.D. students presenting their work in progress

Two prizes will be awarded per language (French, English, Spanish) for the best communications: one to a core faculty and the other to a Ph.D. student provided his/her communication has not been written or co-written by a core faculty holding a doctorate degree.

The best papers of core faculty and Ph.D. students (provided they have been co-written with their research supervisors) will be encouraged to submit their papers to the journal: Recherches en Sciences de Gestion/ Management Sciences/ Ciencias de Gestión.
