Rationale: What is Process Organization Studies?

Process Organization Studies (PROS) is a way of studying organizations that is grounded

on process metaphysics – the worldview in which processes take precedence over

substance. A process view: rests on a relational ontology, a performative epistemology,

and a dynamic praxeology; focuses on becoming, change, and flux, and pays particular

attention to forms of agency; prioritizes process over outcome, activity over product,

2 novelty over stasis, open-endedness over determination; invites us to acknowledge, rather than reduce, the complexity of the world and, in that sense, it is animated by what philosopher Stephen Toulmin called an “ecological style” of thinking.

Purpose, Venue, and Organization

The aim of the Symposium is to consolidate, integrate, and further develop ongoing efforts to advance a sophisticated process perspective in organization and management studies.

PROS is an annual event, organized in conjunction with the publication of the annual series Perspectives on Process Organization Studies (published by Oxford University Press), and it takes place in a Greek island or resort, in June every year. Details of all hitherto Symposia, including topics, conveners and keynote speakers, can be seen at

Around 100 papers are usually accepted, following a review of submitted abstracts by the

conveners. PROS is renowned for offering participants the opportunity to interact in depth, exchange constructive comments, and share insights in a stimulating, relaxing, and scenic environment.

The Tenth Symposium will take place on 20-23 June 2018, at the Porto Carras Grand

Resort, Halkidiki, Greece ( The first day of the Symposium

(20 June) will consist of the Professional Development Workshop. The Symposium venue,

comfortable, relaxing, and situated in one of the most beautiful beachfront locations in rural Greece, in the feet of a mountain of pine trees, seventy minutes’ drive from Thessaloniki Airport (transportation will be arranged), will provide an ideal setting for participants to relax and engage in creative dialogues.

As is customary by now, the Symposium is organized in two tracks – a General Track and

a Thematic Track. Each track is described below.

1. The General Track includes papers that explore a variety of organizational phenomena

from a process perspective.

2. The Thematic Track includes papers addressing the particular theme of the Symposium

every year.


General process-oriented papers, theme-focused papers, as well as PDW workshop papers

and panel discussion proposals are invited. Interested participants must submit an extended abstract of about 1000 words for their proposed contribution by January 31st, 2018 through the following link:
