Call for Tutorials, Workshops and Panels

Submission Details

The language of the conference is English. All submissions must therefore be in English.

ACIS 2012 invites proposals for workshops, panels and tutorial sessions that bring together experts from industry and/or academia with complementary or conflicting perspectives to: generate further opportunities to work on publishable output; discuss a current research topic; demonstrate new ideas and/or approaches; or otherwise highlight issues of importance to the IS field.

Tutorial Proposals

Tutorials can cover any aspect of IS research, education or practice that is relevant to the IS community. Typically, these are hands-on sessions that may demonstrate or explain a new development in the field.

Tutorials will be organised as 1 or ½ day sessions and be scheduled following the normal conference program i.e. Thursday 6th December 2012. Depending on the resource requirements, i.e. rooms etc some tutorials may incur an additional fee. Each tutorial proposal must include:

Workshop Proposals

Workshops should be designed to highlight an area of high priority to the IS community as well as having a balance of academic and industry focus (we suggest an academic and industry chair). It is also suggested that workshop organisers contact potential attendees in their research and/or practitioner communities to evaluate the level of interest and potential attendance at the workshop.

Workshops will be organised during a “block” session of time during the regular conference program i.e. a 1½ hour session (with up to seven available workshop timeslots). A workshop proposal should include up to 10 key participants and also must include:

Panel Proposals

Panels should be designed to articulate and debate an issue of significant importance to the IS community. They may take the form of multiple viewpoint presentations with audience participation, right through to a debate-style controversy.

Panels will be organised during a “block” session of time during the regular conference program i.e. a 1½hour session (with up to seven available panel timeslots). A panel should include 3-5 panelists and also must include:
