This track serves as the nexus of converging interests for researchers in the field who might have specific interests in topics not easily reconciled with existing mainstream SIG-based AMCIS Tracks. We will be specifically interested in research that might not find good fit with mainstream areas of information systems research, and we also welcome methodological plurality, with explicit interests in innovative, provocative, and experimental approaches to both topical and methodological coverage. To that end, this track serves as the primary point of contribution and subsequent publication of innovative research on information systems across a wide range of topic areas, particularly those topics not addressed by other tracks. This track showcases unique and leading edge regarding the state, practice, antecedents and consequences of management information systems as a field of practice, as an artifact of business and its processes, and as a scholarly field of endeavor. We welcome minitracks within this general track structure, welcoming any forward-thinking and unique views of information systems. We can also serve as a nexus for mini-tracks affiliated with emergent AIS Special Interest Groups that have not yet found specific conference affiliations for development and evolution. As a thematic notion, our proposed track title of “Advances in Information Systems” is consistent with the mission and focus of the IS journal to which we intend to provide journal publication opportunities.
