WORKSHOPS & PANELS

Call for Panels & Workshops

The Pacific Asia Conference on Information Systems (PACIS) 2024 aims to offer panels and workshops as part of the annual conference. Information systems (IS) scholars and practitioners are invited to submit panel and workshop proposals for PACIS 2024. 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: Preparing the Next Generation for the IT-Driven Future. The panel session will be scheduled together with the paper session from July 3 to July 5, 2024. It is scheduled as an in-person meeting from 8:30 am to 5:30 pm Ho Chi Minh time. The scheduling of panels will be determined based on submissions. Workshop sessions will be conducted on July 2 (Tuesday), 2024.

Proposal Submissions

  • Proposal submissions for panel or workshop should include the following information:
    1. Title of the proposed panel or workshop.
    2. A concise justification of how the panel or workshop relates to the conference’s central theme, “Preparing the Next Generation for the IT-Driven Future” in particular and/or to IS more in general.
    3. List of the organizer(s) and presenter(s) with their short bios.
    4. A brief description on the primary audience being targeted and the expected number of participants.
  • For panels: A description of the topic to be debated or discussed, the panel structure, including the format for interaction between panelists and the audience and a brief position statement and biographies for each panelist. Panel proposals will also be required to include a participation statement stating that all panelists have committed to attending the conference and serving on the panel if the panel is accepted.
  • For workshops: A description of the workshop, including objectives and planned activities.
  • All the proposals should be submitted to two panel and workshop co-chairs via email.

Review criteria

  • Proposals will be reviewed and evaluated by the panel and workshop co-chairs.
  • The review criteria for panels will include the novelty of the topic, the format of the panel, the diversity of opinions within the panel, the implications of the panel for research and practice in IS, and the likelihood of attracting a wide audience.
  • We intend to provide workshop organizers with early feedback on similar workshop proposals, allowing them to consider mergers (or modifications to make workshops more distinct) in advance.
