Deadline for paper submissions: 10 September 2015
Notification of acceptance/rejection decisions: 24 September 2015

Is your research concerned with the interaction of information systems, organizations and society? Do you need a forum to discuss some of your current research ideas or findings that have not crystallized into a formal paper? Would you like feedback from your peers as you move your current research forward? Do you want to meet internationally respected researchers in information systems?

If so, we invite you to present your research-in-progress or ideas for paper development at OASIS, the IFIP Working Group 8.2 research workshop. OASIS is open to all interested scholars and professionals who are researching in the area of information systems, organizations and society. The unique and collegial character of the IFIP Working Group 8.2 ( ensures constructive, helpful, and high-quality feedback. This is a great opportunity for you to share your research, meet group members, and learn about their research in a relaxed and supportive setting.

This year, OASIS will be held prior to ICIS 2015 on Saturday, 12 December 2015 in Fort Worth, Texas. Papers will be workshopped in small group discussions in a round-table format. Papers will be grouped around the themes of submissions. Participants will be expected to read and comment on other papers in their group. The goal is to help move the work forward to publication in other venues.

We invite those interested in sharing and discussing their research-in-progress or under-development-papers to submit via the EasyChair online submission system:

There are two types of submissions: short papers and long papers. The length of short papers and long papers is limited to 5,000 words and 10,000 words respectively (excluding references). The format of the submission is a Word or PDF document that includes a title, author names and affiliations, and 3-4 keywords.

The deadline for submission is 10 September 2015. Authors will be notified of acceptance/rejection decisions by 24 September 2015. As a paper development workshop there will not be formal proceedings; accepted papers will be made available to other attendees for the period of the workshop and a printed abstract will be include as part of the conference pack.

Further information including registration details will be provided on the conference website. Any questions regarding OASIS can be emailed to the co-chairs, Hani Safadi <> or James Howison <>.
