Electronic Submission System:

The IFIP Working Group 8.2 was established in 1977 as a working group concerned with "the interaction of information systems and the organization." The fluidity of IT over time has afforded and facilitated many new opportunities for organizing, conducting business, and collaborating. The 2011 OASIS workshop promotes understanding of the implications of these opportunities and the challenges they present to organizations.

We invite you to present your as-yet unpublished research at OASIS, the IFIP Working Group 8.2 research workshop. This year, we will have two types of presentation tracks:

1. “Almost Ready for Prime Time” for presentation and discussion in the traditional “stand and deliver, then take questions” format, and,

2. “Research in Progress” that will highlight work still under development and will feature small group discussions in a round-table format, for example, theoretical development, data collection, or data analysis “trouble-shooting sessions.”

The IFIP 8.2 working group focuses on the development and use of information technologies in organizational contexts, both broadly defined. The group seeks to generate and disseminate knowledge about and improve our understanding of the role and impact of information technology and to improve the design and application of information technologies that are both useful and effective for individuals, groups, organizations, and society at large.

The OASIS workshop is open to all interested scholars and professionals who are researching in the area of organizations, information systems, 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 IFIP WG 8.2 members, and learn about their research in a relaxed and supportive setting.

For more information about the Working Group, see http://ifipwg82.org/. Information on IFIP, the International Federation for Information Processing, can be found at http://www.ifip.org/.

Submissions must be received by September 15, 2011. Abstracts will be reviewed and authors will be notified of acceptance by October 7, 2011. Working papers / extended abstracts from “Almost Ready for Prime Time” will be published online on SPROUTS following the meeting. Authors submitting abstracts must grant the IFIP WG 8.2 the right to publish them online, but will retain all other copyrights.
