CFP: ACIS 2010 Call for Workshops, Panels and Tutorials

21st Australasian Conference on Information Systems (ACIS 2010):
Call for Workshops, Panels and Tutorials

Brisbane, Australia
1-3 December 2010

The Australasian Conference on Information Systems (ACIS) is the premier conference in Australasia for Information Systems academics and professionals, covering technical, organisational, business and social issues in the application of Information Technology. In 2010, the ACIS Conference will be jointly organised by Queensland University of Technology (QUT) and The University of Queensland (UQ). The event will take place at the QUT Gardens Point Campus. The campus is located in the Central Business District of Brisbane, the fastest growing city in Australia. With 1.7 million people, Brisbane offers all the facilities and infrastructure of a global hub for technology and tourism.

ACIS 2010 will be dedicated to the definition and establishment of Information Systems as a discipline of high impact for the scientific community and IS professionals. The focus will be on approaches that facilitate the identification of research questions of significant relevance that are studied by following sound research methodologies and that lead to results of measurable impact. Thus, the theme for ACIS 2010 will be: 'Information Systems: Defining and Establishing a High Impact Discipline'.

We now invite submissions for workshop, panel and tutorial proposals to be included in the ACIS 2010 Conference Program.

Workshops are meant to facilitate the focused exchange of ideas and experiences between active researchers, and stimulate discussions on new and emerging issues in line with the conference topics. Workshops may concentrate in-depth on research topics, or may also be devoted to issues such as applications, standardization, and curriculum development. Proposals for one-day workshops are requested.
Tutorials and panel discussions will complement the core of the ACIS 2010 conference. Tutorials will provide the opportunity to introduce one selected topic to the conference participants and to discuss related trends and challenges. Panel discussions will allow for the open conversation of topics related and relevant to the ACIS conference theme among a group of experts. The conference organizers are able to facilitate contacts to local industry representatives, if this is of interest for the organizer of a panel.

Each proposal should include the following information:

- Workshop/Panel/tutorial title and acronym, where applicable

- Brief biography of each organizer and key invite speaker, where applicable

- An outline of the workshop/panel/tutorial theme, goals, planned activities, and a brief discussion on intended audience, and expected audience numbers

- The complete text of the envisioned call for papers, where applicable.

(To decide your workshop key dates, please note that the preliminary workshop proceedings to be distributed at the workshop must be submitted to the ACIS 2010 conference organizers before November 1, 2010.)

We especially encourage workshop proposals that explore new topics and/or attract audience from outside the Australasian region.

All proposals should be directed to the ACIS 2010 Workshop, Panel and Tutorial Chair in electronic form (plain text or PDF) by the deadline indicated below.
