The Workshop on Complex and Adaptive System Approaches in Management and Organization Science (CASMOS2021) will take place online on October 27, 2021, and is co-located with the Conference on Complex Systems CCS2021, Lyon, France.
Management and Organization Science has a long-standing tradition in dealing with complexity. However, at the same time, this research often follows the long-held paradigm of mechanistic systems that are driven mainly by efficiency. Complexity is only described in general terms, and models of systems, such as organizations or markets, are simplistic, with mostly homogeneous decision-makers, linear relationships, and almost no adaptive behavior. Since complex real-world systems are often incompressible due to highly non-linear interactions within the system, analytical methods or highly simplified models are often incapable of explaining the innate dynamics.
This workshop is co-located with the Conference on Complex Systems and is interested in novel and innovative applications of complex adaptive system approaches to rising questions in the field of Management and Organization Science. The aim of the workshop is to facilitate the meeting of people who work in the field of Management and Organization Science (as well as adjacent areas) and who employ complex adaptive system approaches. We aim at providing a multidisciplinary forum for the presentation and discussion of recent research findings. The workshop has the ultimate objectives to bridge the gap between Management and Organization Science and Complexity Science, and to promote thereby the further development of Management and Organization Science with a specific emphasis to dynamics and emergent behaviors.
