Call for Workshops, Tutorials & Panels
We are seeking proposals for workshops, tutorials and panels to be presented at the 2019 PACIS conference. We welcome work from all strands of Information Systems (IS) theory and practice. Workshops and tutorials offer platforms for in-depth learning on specific topics and interests related to the field of IS. Panels provide a forum for debate and discussion of modern IS and organisational phenomena and contemporary issues. 
We kindly invite proposals on all aspects of the main conference theme, “Opportunities and Challenges for the Digitized Society”. In addition, we solicit proposals that cover any new or promising research topics, or innovative and novel methodologies or tools for IS research. Workshops and tutorials will be held on Wednesday, July 10, 2019. They can be scheduled for either a half-day or a full-day till 5.30 PM. The scheduling of panels will be determined based on submissions. All the workshops, tutorials, and panels are free of charge to encourage more participants.
