Final Call for Papers

"Information Systems Perspectives and Challenges in the Context of
Globalization"

IFIP Joint WG 8.2+9.4 Conference, 15-17 June 2003
Venue: Athens University of Economics and Business, Athens, Greece

  http://www.aueb.gr/ifip-isglob03/

The conference focuses on organizational information systems from a global
perspective. "Globalization" can be seen as a contradictory process, which
may imply increased interconnectedness of local actors but also
"globalism" in the form of increased transnational uniformity. Following
Geoff Walsham, the Joint 8.2+9.4 conference urges Information Systems
researchers around the globe "to study particular individuals, groups,
organizations, or societies in detail, and in context." Contextually aware
studies of organizational information systems from all parts of the world
form the basis for comparisons and inferences from a global viewpoint in
this conference.

The conference will be preceded by the first IS PhD Supervisors' Workshop
on Saturday, 14 June 2003. The workshop is organised by Prof. David
Avison, [log in to unmask]
