AMCIS 2016 provides the opportunity for attendees to explore a topic or focus of interest in a discussion panel format. Panels typically involve a moderator (who poses several questions related to the topic), three to four knowledgeable contributors with alternative views or perspectives on the topic, and time for attendee discussion. Depending on the topic, the contributors can be from the academy and/or from industry. Submissions related to the conference theme (“Surfing the IT Innovation Wave”), or other relevant topics of interest to AMCIS attendees, will be considered.
