About SCOS 2023

The Standing Conference of Organizational Symbolism (SCOS) is a prestigious international conference that is yearly organized in different countries and hosting universities (see https://www.scos.org/). In most recent years the conference took place in Copenhagen, York, Tokio, Rome, Uppsala, Nottingham, Utrecht to name a few. 

SCOS is a global network of academics and practitioners, who hail from a hugely diverse range of disciplines and professional backgrounds. We were formed in 1981, originally as an autonomous working group of the European Group for Organizational Studies but have been an independent academic venture for over 25 yearly conferences. Our central interest is in the interlinked issues of organizational symbolism, culture and change, articulated in the broadest possible sense and informed by our commitment to interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary understandings of organization and management. Thus, our work draws, inter alia, from organization studies, social anthropology, management, cultural studies, media studies, philosophy, history, politics and social psychology.
