Georgia Tech I/O – Building international & interdisciplinary bridges in teams research!

Leslie DeChurch, Peter Esssens, and Ramon Rico were awarded funding to host a European Association of Work and Organizational Psychology (EAWOP) small working group meeting in Bellagio, Italy. The meeting was held in October 2012. This 3-day intensive working meeting was focused on the topic of Multiteam System (MTS) effectiveness. The conference brought together a small group of prestigious international researchers who are committed to developing theory and practice regarding MTSs and who are interested in forming international research collaborative ties. The meeting proposal and planning was led by Dorothy Carter and Raquel Asencio.

2013 INGRoup Conference
Atlanta, Georgia, USA
July 11-13, 2013

Societies are dependent on the formation and utilization of groups and teams, making them relevant to countless aspects of life. Accordingly, scholars who study groups can be found across a wide array of disciplines (e.g., anthropology, communication, education, history, information systems, nursing, organizational behavior, philosophy, psychology, political science, public health, sociology). The Interdisciplinary Network for Group Research (INGRoup) was created to provide a context for scholars to:

  • Promote communication about groups and teams research across fields and nations
  • Advance understanding about group dynamics through research
  • Advance theory and methods for understanding groups and teams
  • Promote interdisciplinary research

The 8th annual INGRoup Conference was held so scholars across disciplines could come together, share information, and learn from one another. The conference program included papers, posters, symposia, and panel sessions, a keynote address, and a business meeting open to all members so the future of INGRoup could be collectively planned and shaped.

Leslie DeChurch and Ben Herndon (College of Management) were appointed local arrangements co-Chairs for the 8th Annual Meeting of the Interdisciplinary Network for Group Research (INGRoup)! The conference was held in July 2013 at Georgia Tech’s College of Management. Next summer’s conference will provide a forum for scholars from multiple disciplines who study groups to come together, share information, and learn from one another. The conference was co-sponsored by the College of Science and the College of Management.
