The purpose of panels in ECIS 2022 is to provide the opportunity to present topics and ideas that are state-of-the-art, breaks new ground, and perhaps are controversial for the IS community.
Panels are expected to engage the panelists and the audience in a discussion that will stimulate interaction and enhance the learning experience with a goal of moving the community and the topic forward to greater understanding. Panel topics can vary, but generally, they pertain to new and controversial research questions, innovative research challenges, changes to the status quo of the discipline, and technology-led transformations that give rise to problems that are worthwhile to build new research agenda around. We have provided four examples below.
We also encourage proposals that challenge the traditional panel format, and include innovative and inspirational elements that are likely to prompt the sharing of potentially important new ideas, surprising and spirited reactions, and new conclusions important for IS researchers.
Possible topics for the panels include – but are not limited to:
A panel proposal should include the following seven sections:
The panel proposal must not exceed five (5) pages and must conform to the ECIS 2022 Required Elements of Panel Proposals. The 5-page count must include all text, figures, tables, and appendices. The abstract, keywords, and references are excluded from this page count. Submissions may include a video clip or similar to illustrate the intended format.
Notification will be sent on April 8, 2022.
