Dear OCIS Community,
On behalf of the OCIS exec committee, I am delighted to inform you that Michael Barrett (Cambridge University, UK) has kindly accepted the invitation to be the OCIS keynote speaker. The talk will tale place on Monday, Aug. 8 at 4.45pm – location TBD.
We will soon share details of the presentation.

Monday might not be a very popular day during the whole year, but at the Academy it must be one of the most popular ones. For OCIS, it is a packed day full of interesting presentations, which often finishes with a triple event involving a brilliant keynote, followed by the division business meeting and the official reception. And this year in Vancouver it was no different. More than presenting a single paper or research in progress, keynotes provide speakers an opportunity to make connections across different stages in their career and synthesize years of research in a little more than one hour.
The guest speaker for 2015 in Vancouver was Prof. Wanda Orlikowski (MIT) who needs no introduction. The title of her talk – “Performing Research, Researching Performativity” – might be economic in words, but as one could expect from Prof. Orlikowski, deep in content (and even a little humorous).
This is just a reminder that the OCIS Division keynote address (Sponsored by the iSchool at Syracuse University) will be given by Prof. Wanda Orlikowski (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) at 4:45PM in Vancouver Convention Center room 220, 221, 222. This will be followed by the OCIS Division business meeting and the OCIS reception. We look forward to seeing you all there!
