Dear All,

We kindly invite you to submit your abstract to the
”Organizational Networks” session at the XL Sunbelt Conference, Paris ,
June 2-7.


The networked nature of organizations creates a complex ecosystem where
individuals, groups, units, and other organizations are entangled. Such
entanglement shapes organizations in a dynamic way and affects their
outcomes at multiple levels. This session aims to bring together studies on
organizational networks addressing antecedents, dynamics, and implications
of the cross-level processes leading to the emergence of relations and
outcomes at various levels.

Submissions to this session can refer, but are not limited, to the
following areas of research:

   - Micro-foundations of organizational networks: How individual
   characteristics (i.e., motivation, personality) and cognitions affect the
   emergence of network structures and how, in turn, these network structures
   affect individuals;
   - Dynamics of organizational networks: How network structures at various
   levels co-evolve and affect one another, as well as organizational
   processes and outcomes;
   - Issues of time-dependence in organizational networks: How
   organizational networks at various levels change at different paces over
   - Overlap and interplay between social and other kinds of networks
   within and across organizational settings: How organizational networks are
   affected by the affiliation of individuals or organizations to events or

We welcome both theoretical as well as empirical contributions that address
the various aspects and implications of organizational networks research.
