We are delighted to share some information about CSOL 2023!

After a successful 2022 in-person edition at Asilomar, we ran a survey to gather your preferences for future conferences. Two main results emerged from your answers: the preference to move the conference to May, and the preference for an alternate location. Therefore, in 2023, CSOL goes to the heart of Europe. And in 2024, it will return to the US.

What is CSOL?

CSOL stands for the "Carnegie School of Organizational Learning" Conference. This two-day conference is dedicated to developing a deeper understanding of organizational learning and decision-making, and building stronger ties among scholars interested in learning within and between organizations.

The conference is limited to approximately 40 people in the organizational learning and organizational decision-making field. This small format provides a casual and intimate setting for scholarly conversations and networking.

The conference usually begins in the afternoon on the first day, and finishes around noon on the third day.

What if I want to stay longer?

If you wish to stay longer, you can directly book more nights at Ittingen, and they advise you to do that soon.

What happens after I register?

Once we have your registration, we will be in touch in terms of putting together the presentations schedule, and sending more details about the conference.

Does CSOL still have a non-refundable upfront deposit?

The conference fee structure changed this year due to differences in the conference venues. We will have the early bird fee structure in lieu of the non-refundable deposit.

What about Visas and insurance?

As for international travel, please arrange visas, health and travel insurance on your own. If you need a letter for a Visa, please contact one of the conference organizers.

What about Covid?

The usual applies with Covid. CSOL 2023 is contingent on the state of affairs with Covid. That being said, the preference of the community, based on your survey results, is to have CSOL 2023 an in-person only event.

What does the conference administration fee support?

The conference and accommodations fee covers the conference room, coffee breaks during the conference, internet, and accommodations for Monday and Tuesday nights, plus meals will be covered beginning with dinner on the first day and concluding with lunch on the third day (this includes a rich Swiss breakfast).

The conference administration fee also helps us cover conference contingencies and helps to support the attendance of three to five Ph.D. students.
