AMCIS 2017 Call for Panels
AMCIS 2017 provides an opportunity for attendees to explore topics in a discussion panel format. We especially invite panels addressing the AMCIS 2017 theme, A Tradition of Innovation. A panel typically has a moderator (who poses several questions related to the topic) and three to four knowledgeable panelists with alternative views or perspectives on the topic. The plan should include time for attendee discussion. Panelists can be from the academy and/or from industry. Proposals on topics related to the conference theme, as well as other relevant topics of interest to AMCIS attendees, will be considered.
