Oasis 2005 Workshop Call for papers

Organizations and Society in Information Systems (OASIS) 2005 Workshop

The Venetian Hotel

CASANOVA 501 & 502

Las Vegas, NV, United States

9 AM-3:30 PM Sunday 11 December 2005

  • Is your research concerned with the interaction of information systems, organizations and society?
  • Are you ready to present some of your current research ideas and approaches?
  • Do you need a forum to discuss some of your concepts and/or findings that have not yet crystallized into a formal paper?
  • Would you like feedback from your peers as you move your current work forward?
  • Do you want to meet internationally respected researchers in information systems?

If so, we invite you to present your research-in-progress at OASIS, the IFIP Working Group 8.2 research workshop (or just come to hear the discussions). The OASIS workshop is open to all interested scholars and professionals who are researching in the area of organizations, information systems and society. Moreover, we welcome scholars of social responsibility and ethics in IS. Along with members and friends of IFIP WG 8.2, we welcome researchers new to, or interested in, intensive research in IS. Intensive research was defined for a special edition of MIS Quarterly as empirical research that employs qualitative, case, and/or interpretive methods.

Come get to know our members and their research interests, issues, and methodologies in a relaxed and supportive setting. The unique and collegial character of WG 8.2 ensures constructive, helpful and high quality feedback. OASIS is a particularly useful forum for those just embarking on their research who need constructive advice on research approaches.

Submissions: To present, please submit a 500-word abstract of your work to gro.28gwpifi|5002sisao#gro.28gwpifi|5002sisao by 15 October 2005. We anticipate that submitters will be given about 10-15 minutes to present their work to the assembled group, followed by 5-10 minutes for questions from the audience. The exact timing and review process will depend on the number of abstracts received. We will accept late submissions on a space-available basis. Proposals will be made available online prior to the meeting. Authors submitting proposals must grant the IFIP WG 8.2 the right to publish them online, but retain all other copyrights.

Registration: There will be a nominal registration fee for the workshop to cover the cost of coffee breaks, audio-visual equipment and copying. All attendees and presenters will be required to register. We will provide pre-registration as well as registration at the door in cash (receipts will be provided). Details will be provided on the IFIP WG 8.2 Website.

Time and Place: The workshop will be in the rooms Casanova 501 & 502 of ICIS 2005 in the Conference Hotel, the Venetian, Las Vegas, NV, United States. The workshop will be held from 9 AM-3:30 PM on Sunday 11 December 2005, immediately prior to the ICIS 2005 conference.

IFIP WG 8.2 Business Meeting: All workshop attendees and anyone interested in WG 8.2 are encouraged to attend the WG business meeting that will follow the workshop at 4 PM. At the business meeting, we will discuss future workshops and working conferences, elect new members to the working group and conduct other business.

Questions: Please email any questions regarding this workshop to the chair at gro.28gwpifi|5002sisao#gro.28gwpifi|5002sisao

We look forward to seeing you in Las Vegas in December.
