Please be invited to submit discussion questions (segment 1) and/or work-in-progress papers on trust (segment 2)!

(1) The first segment starts off with a panel discussion, in which leading scholars present their views on the important and “hot” topic of trust violation and recovery. Fundamental issues addressed by the panelists include whether or not the nature of recovered trust is different from trust prior to a violation, whether recovered trust can ever be as strong or even stronger than before the violation, how to measure trust violation and recovery, and which factors are conducive to trust recovery. Subsequently, the workshop breaks into groups that will discuss questions previously submitted by workshop participants. A requirement for registration for the PDW’s first segment is to submit at least one discussion question in advance pertaining to current issues in the study of trust between individuals and organizations (see below for details on how to submit). Questions may relate (but are not limited) to: • trust dynamics over time, • trust at and across levels of analysis, • links between interpersonal and interorganizational trust, • the role of the institutional environment, • the mechanisms through which trust affects performance, • dysfunctional consequences of trust, • trust and control, • trust asymmetries, • trust versus distrust, • the role of emotions.

(2) After a short break, the second segment of the program consists of a paper development workshop, in which the facilitators provide indepth feedback on work-in-progress trust research previously submitted by workshop participants and selected through a competitive process. These papers should be in an advanced developmental stage, targeted at a scholarly management journal, and no more than 40 doublespaced pages in length.

Registration requirements: For segment 1 (discussion): Submit at least one discussion question by email to trustpdw@gmail.com no later than July 25, 2014. For segment 2 (paper development): Submit your working paper by email to trustpdw@gmail.com no later than July 11, 2014. You will then receive a code that will allow you to register for the PDW.

Note that you may register for only one of the two segments if you wish.
