|Short title||PROS 2017|
|PROS is an annual event, organized in conjunction with the annual series Perspectives on Process Organization Studies (published by Oxford University Press), and it takes place in a Greek island, in June every year. Topics in the last three years have included: “Organization routines: How they are created, maintained and changed”, “Skilful performance: Enacting expertise, competence, and capabilities in organizations”, and “Dualities, dialectics, and paradoxes in organizational life” (details of all Symposia so far can be seen at www.processsymposium.com).|

Rationale: What is Process Organization Studies?
Process Organization Studies (PROS) is a way of studying organizations that is grounded on process metaphysics – the worldview that sees processes, rather than substances, as the basic forms of the universe. A process view:
Purpose, Venue, and Organization
The aim of the Symposium is to consolidate, integrate, and further develop ongoing efforts to advance a sophisticated process perspective in organization and management studies.
PROS is an annual event, organized in conjunction with the annual series Perspectives on Process Organization Studies (published by Oxford University Press), and it takes place in a Greek island, in June every year. Topics in the last three years have included: “Organization routines: How they are created, maintained and changed”, “Skilful performance: Enacting expertise, competence, and capabilities in organizations”, and “Dualities, dialectics, and paradoxes in organizational life” (details of all Symposia so far can be seen at www.processsymposium.com).
Around 100 papers are usually accepted, following a review of submitted abstracts by the conveners. PROS is renowned for offering participants the opportunity to interact in depth, exchange constructive comments, and share insights in a stimulating, relaxing, and scenic environment.
The Ninth Symposium will take place on 22-24 June 2017, at the Helona Resort, Kos, Greece (http://www.helona-resort.com). It will be preceded by Pre-Symposium Workshops on 21 June 2017. The Symposium venue, modern, comfortable, and situated in a beautiful location by the sea, will provide an ideal setting for participants to relax and engage in creative dialogues.
The Symposium is organized in two tracks – a General Track and a Thematic Track. Each track is described below.
For 2017 the theme is:
Institutions and Organizations: A Process View
The aim of the Pre-Symposium PDW is to provide a stimulating and interactive context for researchers (especially junior and early-career scholars) to further develop their ideas and projects. More specifically, the Workshop is designed to enable participants to: (a) refine their understanding of process thought; (b) share with others some of the methodological and theoretical challenges they have encountered in conducting, theorizing, and teaching process research, or putting process insights to practice in organizations; and (c) elicit/offer suggestions about how researching, theorizing, teaching and practicing process may be further advanced.
Invitation for papers
We particularly invite submissions of extended abstracts from researchers who have papers at an early stage of writing and would like helpful feedback as to how their papers may be further developed and published. Such submissions will be presented and extensively discussed in a roundtable format.
