The General IS Topics track is intended for high-quality papers on topics that do not have a specific fit with other tracks or have a very comprehensive, cross-thematic scope. The track aims to attract unique and novel papers and give an additional degree of freedom to the conference’s specific tracks, from an epistemological, ontological as well as methodological standpoint. Please check the fit of your paper with other tracks’ topics before submitting your paper to this track. The General IS Topics track furthermore provides the chairs of other tracks the opportunity to submit their manuscripts.

Track Co-Chairs
Idris Adjerid, Ph.D., Virginia Tech University
Joe Nandhakumar, Ph.D., University of Warwick
Marta Indulska, Ph.D., The University of Queensland
