Call for Abstract Submission


Call for Abstract Submission
Summer School on Uncertainty at Work

18 - 23 June 2023

Congressi Stefano Franscini, Ascona (Switzerland)


We invite junior scholars to submit an extended abstract (~1,000 words) describing a current research project to the summer school "Uncertainty at work" hosted by Sharon Alvarez (University of Pittsburgh), Mark Griffin (Curtin University), and Gudela Grote (ETH Zürich), which will take place from 18th June to 23rd June 2023, at the Congressi Stefano Franscini in Ascona (Switzerland). Please send your abstract to by 1st February 2023. Notifications of acceptance will be sent out by March 31st.

The aim of this summer school is to compare and contrast different conceptual and methodological approaches to examining uncertainty regulation with a focus on the work domain. The predominant view of uncertainty reduction as the main motivational driver will be debated in light of recent research on exploration and learning in cognitive psychology, neuroscience, strategic management, and organizational behavior. New interdisciplinary perspectives will be discussed, and foundations built for an emerging community of uncertainty researchers.

More detailed information on the program and the venue is available on the summer school website:

The Summer School registration fee is 200 CHF; full board and lodging for the entire conference will be approximately 750 CHF. We have some funds available to help junior scholars to cover expenses. We therefore kindly ask you to indicate how much funding you would need from us (if any) to be able to participate in the summer school. Please send this information by 1st February 2023, so that we can also respond to your funding requests in the invitation letters.

We look forward to seeing you in Ascona next summer!
