Conference Registration

Book a Hotel Room

*As of right now, the Chase Park Plaza is sold out the night of Wednesday, July 19. For those that need a hotel room Wednesday night (e.g., planning to attend pre-conference activities), we strongly encourage you to CALL and ask the Chase Park Plaza to place you on our waiting list. If any rooms open up, these will be made available on a first-come, first-serve basis. In the event that rooms do not become available, one nearby alternative hotel option we suggest is the Moonrise Hotel (2.5 miles from the Chase and 1.2 miles from university campus).


It is time to register for the INGRoup 2017 conference in St. Louis!!!

The conference registration site is now open. There you can register for the conference AND the pre-conference workshops.

The conference will be held July 20-22, 2017 at the Chase Park Plaza hotel, 212 N. Kingshighway Blvd, St. Louis, Missouri 63108. INGRoup has a block of rooms reserved at a special conference rate from July 17-25, 2017:

  • Standard Guest Room, $160/night
  • One-Bedroom Suite, $170/night

We kindly request that you choose to stay at the conference hotel so that INGRoup does not get fined for not meeting our room block obligations.

Our reserved block is released at that time, and we can no longer guarantee availability after that date.

*Note regarding the Chase Park Plaza hotel: we have heard that the hotel may be sold out the night of Wednesday, July 19. For those that need a hotel room Wednesday evening (e.g., planning to attend pre-conference activities), we strongly encourage you to ask the Chase Park Plaza about Wednesday evening and have them place you on our waiting list. If any rooms open up, these will be made available to those on the waiting list on a first-come, first-serve basis. In the event that rooms do not become available, one nearby alternative hotel option we suggest is the Moonrise Hotel (2.5 miles from the Chase and 1.2 miles from university campus).

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 12th 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, and a business meeting open to all members so the future of INGRoup can be collectively planned and shaped.
