2019 Madrid Work and Organizations Workshop


2019 Madrid Work and Organizations Workshop

The MWOW takes place annually and it is co-organized in turns by Universidad Carlos III de Madrid, IESE and IESE Business School. This year the workshop will take place at Universidad Carlos III de Madrid (Puerta de Toledo campus), starting midday on May 9th and ending early afternoon on the 10th (see program below).

Building on the last two years' successful format, we will combine presentations from keynote invited speakers from abroad and a selection of short presentations of papers submitted mainly by local researchers. We are delighted to count on Ben Campbell (Ohio State University) and Isabel Fernández-Mateo (London Business School) as keynote speakers this year.

For those of you who have not joined in previous editions, the Madrid Work & Organizations Workshop brings together scholars doing research in Strategic Human Resource Management, Industrial Relations, Organizational Behavior, Personnel Economics and related fields. The workshop is an informal forum to discuss research in progress and foster collaboration among scholars. It is an excellent forum to receive feedback for ongoing projects, as the publications that have followed presentation attest to. Attendance to the workshop is open to everyone, but we kindly ask to confirm participation by sending an email to indem@uc3m.es by April 30th.

We look forward to meeting you at the 2019 MWOW!
