Call for Workshops and Panels

The theme of ACIS 2023 is “Thriving in an uncertain digitized world” (Te huarahi oranga i murimuri i te ao hangarau), presents a unique opportunity for you to share your expertise and contribute to the collective knowledge of the conference attendees. We invite workshop and panel proposals that reflect this theme or topics that would be of current interest to IS scholars and practitioners.

Workshops are typically partial- or full-day sessions that facilitate discussion and exploration of ideas, techniques, and methodologies that advance research, teaching knowledge of IS-related concepts, or products from industry and their application to academia, educational curricula, or industry practice.

Panels provide an opportunity for a group of researchers to explore a topical or contested topic of interest in a panel format. This will typically involve a panel moderator (who poses questions related to the topic) and three to four expert contributors offering alternative views on the topic. Panels should aim to draw an audience. Depending on the topic, the experts can be drawn from the academy and/or from industry.

The workshops can be a full day or half day and will be held on 5 December. The panels, with a typical duration of 1.5 hours, will be held from 6 to 7 December, parallel to the main conference paper sessions. 

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Future of work / digital work
  • Business models / business value of emerging technologies, such as artificial intelligence, big data, and blockchain
  • Digital innovation and transformation
  • Smart cities and communities
  • Digital security, privacy, and ethics
  • IS theory, philosophy, and research methods
  • Green IS/IT
  • IS for social good
  • Ethical issues of emerging technologies
  • Generative AI related issues
  • Design science
