AMCIS 2022: Call for Mini-Tracks

 Track: Organizational Transformation & Information Systems (SIGOSRA)

Sponsoring SIG: SIG OSRA

 SIG OSRA calls for you to submit a proposal for AMCIS 2022 to be held August 10 - 14, 2022, Minneapolis, USA. AMCIS 2022 will provide exciting opportunities for participation, collaboration, and dialogue related to the conference theme: Innovative Research Informing Practice.

SIG OSRA’s main interest is in adopting, adapting, or developing Information Systems (IS) that shape how organizations and continually undergo considerable transformation often referred to as “digital transformation”. As a result, information systems, business models, business processes, and end-user workplaces are perpetually analyzed, rethought, and changed. It renews the importance of analyzing the interplay between IS and organizations from socio-technical and end-user perspectives and the implications of changing IS on end-users and customers, who are increasingly technologically savvy and immersed in this digital transformation.
