Becoming engaged with conferences: reputations and networks

By David Avison, Karlheinz Kautz, Marianna Sigala, Edgar A. Whitley and Robert Winter


This paper is intended to encourage members of the IS community to participate in Information Systems conferences. For lecturers and research students participation includes such academic roles of presenter, discussant, panel member, and PhD Consortium student or faculty member. For people further along in their careers, participation includes the leading roles of program chair, track chair, and associate editor. Key administrative roles such as organizing chair, publicity chair, and secretary are also described. Without these roles being fulfilled enthusiastically and effectively, conferences cannot be successful and the discipline is thereby impoverished
