The Social Inclusion track welcomes relevant empirical and qualitative research, in either completed research or emergent research format, that relates to the mission of SIG Social Inclusion (SIG SI). While research about inclusion spans multiple facets of everyday life, this year we adopt the theme of the conference and call for papers related to diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) and ethical issues related to the adoption and use of emergent technologies, AI and algorithmic biases, and digital platforms and societal challenges for e-inclusion. In addition, we welcome papers that tackle the general topics of inclusion: the under-representation of gender minorities, race, ethnicities, neurodiversity, and abilities in the IS field, intersectionality of identities (such as ethnicity, gender and socio-economic class), socioeconomic divisions that impact access to or use of technology, designing for the differently-abled, the digital divide, underserved groups in the information society, and a range of topics related to human diversity, and the “haves” and “have nots” in an information society.
