DIGIT 2012 Call for Papers
The Special Interest Group on the Adoption and Diffusion of Information Technology (SIGADIT) will again host a pre-ICIS workshop for people interested in information technology adoption and diffusion (DIGIT). DIGIT will be held in the morning of Sunday, December 16, 2012 in Orlando, Florida, USA. The theme this year is Delivering e-Services in the Digitally-Enabled World Economy.
The workshop will include paper presentation, roundtables, and panel discussions. This year, our honorable panel members include two leading IS scholars, Izak Benbasat (University of British Columbia) and Dorothy Leidner (Baylor University). They will be joined by the Vice Provost and CIO for Computing and IT of Clemson University, James ‘Jim' Buttom, who is named by ComputerWorld as one of the Top 100 IT Leaders, as well as senior industrial executives of Dell and Salesforce.com to discuss the intersections of e-services research and practice. Faculty members and doctoral students are encouraged to attend and submit papers for roundtable discussion. Doctoral students submitting papers to the conference will be eligible for a workshop scholarship that covers the DIGIT registration fee**. The deadline for submission of papers is Monday, September 3, 2012. Notification of acceptance or rejection will be made in early November.
