10th FINT Workshop - Trust Within and Between Organizations



Conference Dates: January 9th -11th, 2019

Deadline for Submission: June 1st, 2018

FINT is celebrating as we organize the 10th FINT Workshop on ‘Trust Within and Between Organizations’ in January 2019! In 2001 the first workshop was organized in Amsterdam by our founding member Katinka Bijlsma and ever since trust research and the workshop have been growing strong. To celebrate the strong research output of the trust community, we decided to organize this 10th workshop in the Swiss mountains to feature more of those exciting discussions on where trust is heading. Surely, trust as a topic could not be more relevant in times when global leadership and many organizations face trust repair and distrust issues in abundance, creating a window of opportunity where trust research can bridge the practice gap we so often face as academics.

To make this happen, the 10th FINT workshop on “Trust Within and Between Organizations” is seeking submissions. Trust is a concept and shared human experience that crosses disciplinary, cultural, and generational boundaries. It lies at the heart of all human relationships whether with another individual, a group, or an institution. Trust is a key factor in our conceptions of society and civilization, and is claimed to be essential in enabling and enhancing cooperation, sharing of information, problem solving, fostering commitment and job satisfaction as well as generating a range of individual, group, organizational, and societal performance outcomes. The changing nature of the current social and political environments within which we exist as individuals and as members of groups, highlights the importance of trust to success and simultaneously, the challenges to its continued existence within relationships and institutions.

This FINT workshop seeks to provide a forum in which we further develop our trust knowledge within an inspiring community. We welcome both junior and senior contributor representatives of the academic and practitioner communities from a wide range of academic disciplines, using qualitative and quantitative methods, with empirical and theoretical insights to offer. Hence our call for papers is deliberately broad. We are open to all research questions pertaining to current trust research and invite the submission of proposals for symposia, thematic panels, interactive workshops, and other innovative sessions, in addition to individual papers. 

Below we outline the requirements for submitting individual papers as well as other types of sessions (e.g., symposia, panels, workshops). Please read these requirements carefully prior to submission and email the conference program committee with any questions. All submissions should in some way relate to trust research within private or public organizations, government, or society.

Your paper should clearly explain the relevance of the chosen topic, the research question, theoretical background and the contribution of the research. Empirical papers should provide an overview of their methodology, analysis and main findings. In order to facilitate double-blind review of paper submissions please ensure your submission document excludes any author names or identifying information. Details of authorship will instead be provided through the paper submission system. We invite you to submit a paper in one of three categories:
• Doctoral Colloquium Paper: Doctoral students and early career researchers are encouraged to submit a paper for review and feedback at the doctoral colloquium on the 9th of January. Papers in this category should comply with JTR author submission guidelines.
• First Cut Paper: Papers under development can be submitted to the “First Cut Papers” section. These papers will be featured in conference sessions designed to provide the maximum amount of feedback to authors. Papers in this category should be submitted as an extended abstract up to a maximum of 1500 words (including title, abstract, figures, references etc.).
• Conference Paper: Well-developed manuscripts nearing journal submission or publication can be submitted to the “Conference Papers” section. Papers in this category can be up to a maximum of 3000 words (including title, abstract, figures, references etc.).

Alternate Format Submissions (Symposia, Panels, etc.)
We also welcome submissions for alternative types of sessions, including symposia, interactive panel discussions, workshops, and other innovative formats (feel free to be creative!). Unlike the paper submissions, these submissions are not blind review and should include a title page with the names, affiliations, and roles of people who will be leading, presenting, or speaking in the session. Alternate format submissions should be no longer than 3000 words (including title page, abstract, figures, references etc.). Successful submissions will typically be assigned a 1.5 hour session within the conference program. Please note that we have limited space for these alternate sessions.

In both categories, submissions should be created in MSWord or PDF with double spaced, 12pt Times New Roman font and numbered pages.

Submissions should be made via the conference website by June 1st, 2018, 23.59 GMT.
The website will be open for submissions starting on April 15th, 2018.
If you have any questions regarding the submission process or the conference administration, please e-mail
