Workshop Call

ACIS2017 invites proposals for workshops for ACIS 2017 in December 2017. The theme of ACIS2017 is Data, Knowledge and Decisions.  The workshops will be held in Hobart, at Wrest Point Tasmania. Submissions are invited for Research or Tutorial Workshops.  We invite proposals that reflect this theme or topics that would be of current interest to IS scholars and practitioners. Please send your submissions through the ACIS2017 Submission System.

Tutorial Proposals

Tutorials are usually hands-on sessions that offer training in, or a comprehensive understanding of, an emerging field or a state-of-the-art topic that is relevant to the IS community. Each tutorial proposal must include:

  • Name, affiliation and contact details for the presenter
  • Qualifications of the speaker (for running the tutorial)
  • Tutorial title, a 750-word abstract, and a brief outline
  • Duration of the tutorial (e.g. half-day or full-day)
  • Planned activities during the tutorial
  • Special requirements (e.g. Internet access, software etc)
  • Target audience and maximum number of tutorial participants (if limited)

Workshop Proposals

Workshops should highlight an area of high priority to the IS community, balancing the interests of academia and industry. They should focus on discussions and explorations of: (i) ideas, techniques and methodologies to advance research or teaching in IS, or (ii) IS-related concepts and/or products from industry and their application to academia or educational curricula.

Each workshop should preferably have an academic chair and an industry chair. Workshop organisers should contact potential attendees (researchers and/or practitioners) to evaluate the level of interest and possible attendance at the workshop.  A workshop proposal should include:

  • Name, affiliation and contact details for the workshop chairs
  • Qualifications of the chairs (for running the workshop)
  • Names and affiliation of up to 10 key participants who will assist in driving the workshop agenda and outputs. (Note: Key participants must commit to the workshop before the submission.)
  • Title of the Workshop, a 750-word abstract, and a brief outline
  • Planned activities during the workshop
  • Planned activities after the workshop i.e. possible publication and research grant strategies
  • Planned target outlets for the workshop output
  • Target audience
