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.


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

Submission Process

An online system will be made available from November 15, 2016, to February 15, 2017 (23:59:59, Eastern Standard Time). All submissions must be accompanied by a 50-word abstract for inclusion in the conference program. Submitters will be required to provide full name, position, institution, discipline, and contact information for all authors. Submissions that include participants from a variety of disciplinary traditions are highly encouraged. Submissions that involve research that has been previously presented at other professional conferences should be modified so that they are not identical to past presentations and, most importantly, should be tailored to suit INGRoup's interdisciplinary audience. More details on session types will be provided in the near future.
