Zurich Meeting

Our second meeting is taking place at Zurich this Thursday and Friday. Unfortunately, it’s invite only, but some of you may nevertheless be interested in what issues we’re tackling. First, we have two great keynotes lined up:

In addition, we have teamed up to present some issues directly related to organization as communication:

  • What characterizes organizational communication in contrast to other forms of communication? Gabriele Fassauer (University of Dresden) and Daniel Geiger (Technical University of Kaiserslautern)
  • Is communication sufficient to describe organizations? On the minimum conditions of organizing. Jochen Koch (Viadrina University Frankfurt/Oder), Dennis Schoeneborn (University of Zurich), and David Seidl (University of Zurich)
  • CCO and institutionalism. Swaran Sandhu (University of Lucerne) and Simone Schiller‐Merkens (Stanford University)
  • Markets/networks as communication. Guido Möllering (MPIfG Cologne) and Gordon Müller‐Seitz (Free University Berlin)
  • Coordination as communication. Daniel Geiger (Technical University of Kaiserslautern)
  • Leadership as communication. Jochen Koch (Viadrina University Frankfurt/Oder)
  • Strategic vs. emergent communication. Stefan Wehmeier (FH Vienna)
  • The communicative constitution of terrorist organizations. Dennis Schoeneborn (University of Zurich) and Andreas G. Scherer (University of Zurich)
  • Bibliometric analysis of organization as communication. Steffen Blaschke (University of Hamburg)

It sure sounds like a good line-up, don’t you think. If you’re not a member of the network, yet you are interested in some of the topics, please address either the respective authors themselves or myself.
