    Researchers interested in studying emotions in organizational settings are invited to submit papers for the Twelfth International Conference on Emotions and Organizational Life ('Emonet XII'), to be held in Lancaster, UK, July 8-9, 2020. The conference is organized by the Emonet e-mail discussion group, an international network of scholars working in this field, established in January, 1997, and affiliated with the Academy of Management's Listserv (see It will follow the annual 37th EGOS Colloquium scheduled for July 2-4, 2020 in Hamburg, Germany (see

    The primary aim of the conference is to bring together scholars who study emotions in organizational life, and to provide a forum for presentation of some of the significant advances that have been made in our understanding of this important area. The conference papers will be considered for inclusion in Volumes 17 and 18 of the Annual Series, Research on Emotion in Organizations, published by the Emerald Group (see

    Theoretical and empirical papers are invited on any topic of relevance to the study of emotions at work, including the determinants of emotion; the nature and description of emotion; processes and effects of emotion at the organizational, team, and individual levels.

    The deadline for receipt of papers is March 23, 2020. Papers should be submitted via the Emonet website (see below), and will be subject to blind review. Papers should be no longer than 40 pages of double-spaced 12-point Times Roman text in length, and should be formatted according to the submission guidelines for the Academy of Management. We encourage innovative submissions, but all must satisfy the requirements of rigorous scholarship. A brief statement of your preference for presentation format should also accompany submission of papers. It is anticipated that a wide variety of delivery styles will be used, including symposia, panel discussions, workshops, posters, and traditional presentations. Reviewing standards will be irrespective of format.

    Authors who will be unable to attend the conference are also invited to submit their papers to be considered for inclusion in one of the book volumes. These papers will be subject to the same review process as the conference papers. Authors submitting their papers for consideration should indicate whether they wish to have their work reviewed for presentation at the conference, the book, or both. At least one of the authors of a paper accepted for the conference must be present at the conference.

    Papers for Emonet XI may be submitted after Feb 23, 2020 via the conference submission link on the Emonet conference website,
