About the conference

Societies are dependent on the formation and utilization of groups and teams, making them relevant to countless aspects of life. Accordingly, scholars who study groups can be found across a wide array of disciplines (e.g., anthropology, communication, education, engineering, history, information systems, medicine, nursing, organizational behavior, philosophy, psychology, political science, public health, sociology, economics). The Interdisciplinary Network for Group Research (INGRoup) was created to provide a context for scholars to:

  • Promote communication about group research across fields and nations
  • Advance understanding about group dynamics through research
  • Advance theory and methods for understanding groups
  • Promote interdisciplinary research

The 13th Annual INGRoup Conference will be held so scholars across disciplines can come together, share information, and learn from one another. The conference program will include paper, poster, symposia, and panel sessions, a keynote address, the 2nd Annual HACKmanATHON, and a business meeting open to all members so the future of INGRoup can be collectively planned and shaped.
