The CIPD is launching its first annual conference for academics researching people management, employment, learning and development and related fields. As well as looking at theoretical and empirical advances, the conference will have a particular focus on the practical application of research to labour markets and organisational life.
We would like to invite you to submit an abstract for consideration for this event. Papers will be considered from both early career and also more established researchers.
The conference will be held on Tuesday 8 December 2015
Theme: The shifting landscape of work and working lives
Venue: Warwick Business School at The Shard, London
Delegate cost: £60
The deadline for submission of abstracts is Friday 31 July 2015. Applicants will be informed of a decision the first week of September. Papers must fit within the 2015 conference theme and focus in particular on the research implications for practitioners working in HR, employment policy and related fields.

If you have any questions, please contact Keri Pottle at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Selections of the conference papers will be considered for submission to the peer-reviewed journals:
• Human Resource Management Journal (HRMJ)
• Journal of Organisational Performance: People and Performance (JOEPP)
Invited submissions will be subject to the usual terms of submissions of the journals but will be fast tracked to be published within 12 months.
Successful applicants will also be invited to submit papers of 2,000 to 3,000 words for publication by the CIPD. For speakers who prefer not to take this opportunity, we will publish an abstract as part of conference proceedings. Articles summarising a selection of papers presented at the conference may also appear in the CIPD publications Work. and/or People Management.
