Call for Submissions, 2013 OASIS Pre-ICIS Workshop, Milan, Italy

9 AM - 4 PM Saturday, December 14, 2013
Academia Building, Bocconi University

Submission Deadline: September 1, 2013

Submission System:

We invite you to present your as-yet unpublished research at OASIS, the IFIP Working Group 8.2 research workshop. 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.

This year, we will have two types of presentation tracks:

1. “Full Papers” which are “almost ready for prime time” for presentation and discussion in the traditional “stand and deliver, then take questions” format.

2. “Research in Progress Papers” 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 “troubleshooting sessions”.


1. “Full Papers” please submit a 1200-1500 word extended abstract.

2. “Research in Progress” please submit a 300-500 word abstract.

To submit your abstract to the workshop, upload an electronic copy of your abstract (including 3-4 keywords on the abstract page) to the EasyChair Submission System at

Submissions must be received by September 1, 2013. Abstracts will be reviewed and authors will be notified of acceptance by October 1, 2013. Working papers and extended abstracts from the “full papers” category 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.
