Call for Workshops & Panel Sessions
The Pacific Asia Conference on Information Systems (PACIS) 2023 aims to offer panel and workshop sessions as part of the annual conference. Information systems (IS) scholars and practitioners are invited to submit panel and workshop session proposals for PACIS 2023.
We invite panels that facilitate debate and discussion of contemporary issues in IS research, practice, and teaching. Panels are expected to engage the panelists and the audience in a debate that stimulates engagement and enhances the learning experience with the aim of advancing the IS community and the topic forward to greater understanding. The topics of panels might vary, but in general, they should refer to new and challenging research questions, novel research challenges, changes to the discipline’s status quo, and technology-driven transitions that give rise to problems worthy of a new research agenda.
In addition, we welcome workshops delivered by researchers and practitioners on specific IS-related topics. The aim of the workshop should be to foster and build communities of interest among scholars. They should provide an opportunity to generate ideas, challenge assumptions, think creatively, inspire action, and forge new partnerships.
We invite submissions on all facets of the conference theme: Navigating Digital Turbulence and Seizing New Possibilities. The panel session will be conducted on Friday, July 8, 2023*. It is scheduled as an in-person meeting from 8:30 am to 5:30 pm Beijing time (July 7, 8:30 pm to July 8, 05:30 am US Eastern Time). The scheduling of panels will be determined based on submissions. Workshop sessions will be on July 11 (Tuesday) and July 12 (Wednesday).
