Call for submissions for the ICA Annual Meeting
The complete call is here:
The Information Systems Division focuses on original scientific research on how information is generated, processed, and distributed, and how individuals and society are affected by information in various contexts (e.g., health, politics, technologies, education, business, advertising, culture, journalism). All levels of analysis (e.g., intrapersonal, interpersonal, organizational, societal) are welcome.
The Division prides itself on developing a conference environment encouraging dynamic interaction between scholars with data and ideas to share. Most papers accepted for presentation will be programmed into high-density sessions. These sessions will feature extremely brief (3-minute) oral presentations of each study followed by author/audience interaction taking place at research posters created by the authors.
