Call For Papers - IOBC 2023

The Sixth Israel Organizational Behavior Conference (IOBC)

January 3rd-5th, 2023

CFP submission deadline is July 1st 2022



Conference Theme:

 Rethinking Collaboration and Coordination in Work and in Organization


Following the success of previous Israel Organizational Behavior Conferences (IOBC), we are pleased to announce the call for papers for the Sixth IOBC.

The confererence will be held at Tel Aviv University on January 3-5, 2023.


In this context, we welcome submissions relating to the theme of collaboration and coordination in work and organizations. We invite submissions applying both quantitative and qualitative methodologies, and building on any organization-related discipline (e.g., management; I/O, cognitive and neuro-psychology; labor and behavioral economics; sociology). Among the questions and issues that we hope conference participants will address in their submissions are:

  • How do leaders influence coordination and collaboration in the workplace?
  • How can individuals and teams compete and collaborate simultaneously?
  • What is the role of gender and other identity dimensions in facilitating collaboration and coordination?
  • What insights can we glean from the pandemic regarding the consequences of virtual cooperation and collaboration?
  • What factors moderate the degree to which collaboration is harmful or beneficial?
  • How does resource scarcity impact cooperation and collaboration?
  • What are the dark sides of coordination and collaboration, and what factors drive such “dark” (e.g., unethical) coordination and collaboration?
  • What factors foster collaborative relationship among and between gig workers and conventional employees?
  • Is there an optimal way to collaborate and coordinate across geographically dispersed teams?
  • How can we increase newcomer coordination and collaboration when working remotely?
  • What factors drive individuals to collaborate and compete with AI?
  • What are the costs and benefits of human-machine collaborations?
  • How should human-machine decision making interactions be structured? 
  • What factors impact human trust in machine-based suggestions and decisions?
  • How do work engagement and burnout affect employees’ willingness and ability to collaborate?


Submissions unrelated to the conference theme will also be considered for the scholarly program.  The scholarly program will include a parallel track showcasing important and interesting studies exploring non-theme related OB topics.
