The Institute for Compensation Studies Emerging Scholars Conference will be held on May 31st – June 1st, 2013 (Schedule) at Cornell University's ILR School in Ithaca, NY (Venue & Travel).

The goal of the conference is to encourage scholars in early stages of their research careers by providing an opportunity for rigorous research dialogue focusing on compensation (very broadly defined). The unique conference format will stress interactive dialogue. Participants are asked to read, prior to the conference, all the emerging-scholar papers to be presented and be prepared to engage actively in discussion with fellow emerging scholars from disciplines other than their own. A select number of senior scholars and compensation practitioners will also participate in the conference discussions. In order to promote rich conversation in this inagural year of the conference, only eight emerging scholars will be presenting their compensation-related research, but all are expected to contribute actively to the discussion.

Papers will be available for download in April.

Participation at the Conference is by invitation only (Attendees confirmed to date). For further information contact:

A conference dinner will be held on Friday, May 31st at the Cornell University Johnson Museum of Art. Conference attendees are welcome to invite a guest to the conference dinner.

There is no conference registration fee and room and board during the conference will be provided free of charge to all emerging-scholar attendees.

WorldatWork has generously provided financial underwriting for this conference. WorldatWork believes strongly in the value of innovative and rigorous research and supporting the development of emerging scholars in the field of compensation.

Additional grant funding provided by Cornell ILR School's Pierce Memorial Fund and Cornell University's Institute for the Social Sciences.
