2022 Division PDW Program: Call for Submissions

The Communication, Digital Technologies, and Organizations (CTO) Division invites submissions for professional development workshops (PDWs) at the 2022 Annual Meeting in Seattle, Washington, USA. PDW sessions may take place any day during the Annual Meeting, Friday, August 5 to Tuesday, August 9, 2022. PDWs are an opportunity to be innovative, discuss unresolved questions, learn or teach best practices in teaching and research, debate future directions for research, and organize novel activities that bring the expertise and experience of CTO members to bear on the challenges that we all face in our daily professional lives.

We seek sessions that recognize the division’s interdisciplinary approach to further the understanding of the behavioral, social, technical, and economic issues at the intersection of communication, digital technology, and organizing. The CTO Division is actively seeking PDW proposals that address important organizational issues involving anything digital, including artificial intelligence and machine learning, data analytics, and information and communication technologies of all sorts. PDWs around the All Academy Theme of “Creating a Better World Together” are especially encouraged. Workshops can take many forms such as tutorials, town hall meetings, breakout sessions, debates, roundtables, tours or research incubators – as long as they have a clear interactive component. Proposals will be evaluated on their ability to draw an audience from CTO and across the Academy, innovativeness, and potential impact on the professional success of participants.

PDW submissions must be made through the Academy's Submission Center website. The deadline for submissions is Tuesday, January, 11, 2022, at 17:00 (5pm) ET (NY Time). If you are interested in proposing a PDW session, you are welcome to contact PDW Chair, Nicholas Berente to get feedback and further develop your idea for a PDW session.
