The purpose of panels in ECIS 2020 is to provide the opportunity to present ground-breaking and perhaps controversial topics and ideas to the IS community.
Panels are expected to engage the panelists and the audience in a discussion that will stimulate interaction and enhance the learning experience with a goal of moving the topic forward to greater understanding and application. Panel topics can vary, but generally, they pertain to new and controversial research questions, innovative research challenges, changes to the status quo of the discipline, and technology-led transformations that give rise to problems that are worthwhile to build new research agenda around. We encourage proposals that challenge the traditional panel format, and include innovative and inspirational elements that are likely to prompt the sharing of potentially important new ideas, surprising and spirited reactions, and new conclusions about how IS researchers should be targeting new areas.
Panels pertaining to any topic relevant to information systems research are invited. Particularly welcome will be panel proposals that will be related to the conference theme of:
Liberty, Equality, and Fraternity in a Digitalized World
