We plan a small-scale workshop over three days with approximately 25-30 participants and plenty of time for discussion. We hope to attract new and on-going research on the selection and assessment topics in order to explore mutual interest, and build collaborative networks between selection researchers across Europe. Special attention will be provided to PhD students presenting their early research, with the opportunity to interact with one of the experienced EAWOP members participating in the SGM.
100 euros (including welcome party, coffee breaks, two lunches and the conference dinner). Doctoral students can benefit of a special fee of 50 euros. Participation in the SGM is limited to 30 participants. Travel and accommodation costs will have to be covered by participants.

Abstracts of papers (max. 500 words) should be submitted by January 15th of 2011 through the SGM’s website ( After the review process each author will be notified about the acceptance of the submitted abstract, before the end of February 2011. Full papers must be submitted before 1st of June 2011. Maximum paper length: 5.000 words (tables, figures and references not included). Papers will be made available on the SGM website for all participants, so that all information can be studied before the small group meeting takes place.

Greece: Funding Opportunities for Postdoctoral Research

The Greek Ministry of Education, Lifelong Learning and Religious Affairs invites all interested beneficiaries to submit proposal summaries for their inclusion in the Action "Support of Postdoctoral Researchers".

The aim of this Action is to facilitate the acquirement of new research skills by Postdoctoral Researchers (PR) that will promote their career development in any field and/or help them restart their careers after a leave of absence (but no more than seven (7) years following their doctorate conferment date). Emphasis will be given to the support of new scientists at the beginning of their career. The duration of the research projects should range from 24 to 36 months. Each candidate can submit only one (1) research proposal.
The total public cost of the present call is 30.000.000€ and it is co-financed by the ESF (European Social Fund). The maximum budget for each project is 150.000€. At least 60% of the total budget should be related to costs pertaining to activities undertaken by the PR and should include a monthly net allowance of 1.600€, subject to cost-of-living adjustments for different countries.
The potential beneficiaries of this call must be either:
a) Greek or foreign nationals that have acquired their doctorate from a non-Greek University. These researchers should undertake their research in a University/Research Institution within Greece
b) Greek nationals that have acquired their doctorate from a Greek University. These researchers may undertake their research in a University/Research Institution either in Greece or abroad. In the first case the host Institution should differ from the University where the candidate PR obtained his/her doctorate and the PR should collaborate with a scientist other than his/her PhD supervisor. In the second case the PR should undertake the first 2/3 of his/her research in a University/Research Institution outside Greece and the final 1/3 in a University/Research Institution within Greece.
A two-stage submission procedure will be followed. Please, note that at this stage (i.e. 1st stage) the PRs are not required to have established cooperation with the host Institution. They only need to indicate where (University/Research Institution) and with whom (Faculty member or Research Scientist of a public Research Institution that holds a PhD degree) they would like to cooperate. If a proposal is positively assessed during the evaluation of summaries (1st stage), the respective PR will be asked to submit a full proposal (2nd stage) as well as contact the proposed host Institution to ensure collaboration.
All summaries (as well as the full proposals at the 2nd evaluation stage) will be reviewed by international experts. Further information for the 2nd submission stage will become available in the near future.
All interested beneficiaries should register at the following link:
and submit their summaries at:
The summaries submission deadline is November 20, 2010 at 22:00 GMT.

ΕΡΕΥΝΑ: Τα εργαλεία Κοινωνικής Δικτύωσης στην Ελλάδα

Τα τελευταία χρόνια τόσο στην Ελλάδα όσο και στο εξωτερικό έχουμε δει μια έκρηξη στην χρήση του Internet και των ιστοσελίδων κοινωνικής δικτύωσης (π.χ. LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, Blogs, κλπ). Η παρούσα έρευνα θα προσπαθήσει να καταγράψει, για πρώτη φορά στην Ελλάδα, τη χρήση και την αποτελεσματικότητα αυτών των ιστοσελίδων, από την σκοπιά της Διοίκησης Ανθρωπίνων Πόρων.

Πιο συγκεκριμένα ο Σύνδεσμος Διοίκησης Ανθρώπινου Δυναμικού Ελλάδας (ΣΔΑΔΕ) και το Εργαστήριο Οργανωσιακής Συμπεριφοράς και Ηγεσίας (CROB-L) του Οικονομικού Πανεπιστημίου Αθηνών, στα πλαίσια της ευρύτερης συνεργασίας τους, αποφάσισαν την από κοινού διεξαγωγή της παρούσης έρευνας με στόχο την αποτύπωση των λόγων και τρόπων χρήσης των ιστοσελίδων κοινωνικής δικτύωσης αλλά και της αποτελεσματικότητας τους στην εξεύρεση και αναζήτηση εργασίας, τόσο από τα στελέχη του Ανθρώπινου Δυναμικού όσο και από τους εργαζόμενους ή υποψήφιους για εργασία.

Για τον σκοπό αυτό έχουμε δημιουργήσει δύο ξεχωριστές έρευνες: Η πρώτη απευθύνεται σε στελέχη του Ανθρώπινου Δυναμικού που χρησιμοποιούν το Internet και τις ιστοσελίδες κοινωνικής δικτύωσης ως εργαλεία της εργασίας τους κυρίως για την εξεύρεση και επιλογή προσωπικού, ενώ η δεύτερη απευθύνεται σε εργαζόμενους-υποψήφιους οι οποίοι τα χρησιμοποιούν στα πλαίσια κοινωνικής δικτύωσης ή/και αναζήτησης εργασίας. Δεν θα χρειαστείτε περισσότερο από 15-20 λεπτά για την συμπλήρωση του on-line ερωτηματολογίου.

BPS RESEARCH DIGEST: Early risers are more proactive than evening people

"I've always envied early risers, those who spring out of bed at the crack of dawn, ready, it seems, to take on the world. Of course their early vitality could be short-lived. Morning friskiness gives the impression of a positive nature but are 'larks' really more proactive people than 'owls'?

Yes, according to Christoph Randler who surveyed 367 student participants and found a correlation between their self-reported 'morningness' (as revealed by their answers to questions about how easy they find it to get up in the morning and how alert they feel) and their self-reported proactivity (measured by their agreement with statements like 'I spend time identifying long-range goals for myself' and 'I feel responsible for my own life'). The correlation was relatively weak (.44, where 1 would be a perfect match) but was statistically significant.

Randler also found proactivity to be (inversely) correlated, though to a lesser extent than morningness, with so-called 'social jetlag'. This is caused by the mismatch between one's biological time-keeping and the demands of social time, as betrayed by the difference in students' choice of rise times between weekdays and weekends."

Glass Ceiling Anew: Bosses mistakenly believe female workers have more family-work conflict than men do, and that misconception stymies women's career

"Decades into the era of two-earner households, the virtues of family-friendly policies are all but universally assumed in the corporate world. But now new research suggests serious potential pitfalls for women in those policies, hazards stemming from persistent misconceptions about women's susceptibility to conflicts between their family commitments and workplace responsibilities.

A study in the current issue of The Academy of Management Journal reveals that bosses generally perceive women workers to have more family-work conflict than men, even though this isn't the case. And this belief, mistaken though it is, leads supervisors to take a negative view of women employees' suitability for promotion."
