Rotterdam school of Management, Erasmus University compact logo

Organisational Neuroscience (NEU), an Interest Group of the Academy of Management, in partnership with Rotterdam School of Management, Erasmus University (RSM), offers you a specialised conference in Organisational Neuroscience. The first conference of its kind anywhere in the world, taking place in Rotterdam. Dedicated to generating and using neuroscience knowledge and broader biologically-based approaches at different levels of analysis in organisations, this conference also promotes the various links to management practices.

About the Conference

The Organisational Neuroscience conference programme includes a mix of formats. These include plenary and interactive poster sessions, a PDW, a doctoral consortium, keynote speakers, informal networking and social events.  

Three plenary sessions see invited panellists addressing:

  1. Key research issues in organisational neuroscience
  2. Editors’ perspectives on publishing organisational neuroscience
  3. External stakeholders’ perspectives on the developments, uses and possible pitfalls of Organisational Neuroscience

As an attendee, you may submit your own work for a poster session. Simply follow the instructions listed below. Submission topics pertinent to the poster sessions include but are not limited to:

  • Understanding the neurobiological drivers that underlie organisational behaviour, entrepreneurship and strategic decision making

  • Applying integrative empirical and/or theoretical approaches to broaden our understanding of behaviours and decision-making across levels of analyses and management fields (e.g., strategy, entrepreneurship, OB and more)

  • Applying theories from neuroscience to inform research questions in management and organisational sciences

  • Considering ethical questions that may emerge from neuroscience applications to management research

  • Developing state-of-the-art, methodological applications and innovations in organisational neuroscience

Keynote speaker

Scott Shane

Professor of economics, Weatherhead School of Management

Scott Shane teaches courses in technology strategy and entrepreneurship in his faculty appointments at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), University of Maryland, Georgia Institute of Technology and now at Weatherhead School of Management.

Review Process
The blind review process exists to help protect the integrity of the submission and review process. Submissions are double-blind reviewed, and are evaluated on relevance to the conference theme, clarity, analysis, methodological rigor, and overall quality. Double-blind review means that author and submitter information is NOT known to the reviewers, and reviewer information is NOT known to the authors or submitter. Poster submissions should keep this process in mind and attempt to not reveal author information.
