Workplace Trends Spring Summit: Call For Abstracts
Thursday 08 March 2018, 09:30 – 17:30, + Drinks Social
The Royal Society, London SW1Y 5AG

We’re excited to be planning something a little different for our UK Spring Summit in 2018. We have so many requests from potential speakers for our events that we’re opening the doors formally with a Call for Abstracts. 

The conference theme is Workplace Cutting Edge Research and we are seeking presentations on recently published studies on work and the workplace. Presentations of recent journal articles, books and white papers are all welcome.

All you need do is submit your presentation title, a short synopsis of up to 200 words, and a few other items (see here) either by our Survey Monkey link or by email to me at

Submitted abstracts will be anonymously peer-reviewed by Nigel Oseland and Neil Usher for technical content (66%). The conference organiser will also separately review evidence of speakers’ past presentations, experience and style (33%), to ensure sessions on the day are made by those comfortable presenting to an informed audience.

The closing date for entries is Friday 8 December, and we will announce the results approximately ten days later. Any queries should be emailed to us here.
