This year’s OCIS program has a number of high quality PDWs, Symposia and Paper sessions. These sessions will be of interest not only for the OCIS Division members but also for whoever is interested in the area of technology and organizations. We would like to highlight more particularly:
PDW: Field Research Of The Future: Challenges, Opportunities, Pragmatics
Friday August 7 8:30am – 11:00am Vancouver Convention Centre: Room 204
The goal of the PDW is to promote a conversation around how qualitative researchers are currently facing the challenge of doing fieldwork in our technologically saturated world — not necessarily in terms of ‘virtual ethnography’ or fieldwork in online spaces but also how texts, trace data, sensors, etc. affect how we conduct research in physical spaces and “observe” human behavior in new ways.
PDW: Complexity in Information Systems Research and Digital Business
Friday August 7 12:00pm – 4:00pm Vancouver Convention Centre: Room 212
This PDW brings together scholars who work on, or intend to apply theories and methods from complexity science to 1) share current state of academic research, 2) motivate further research interest in IT-induced complexity and digital business, 3) engage in a thoughtful discussion on key references, concepts, and adequate methods for complexity research on IS and organizational phenomena
Symposium: The Role of Context in Virtual Work
Monday August 10 8:00am – 9:30am Vancouver Convention Centre: Room 223
In this symposium we address the tension between working remotely ‘anytime, anywhere and with anyone’ and the individual embeddedness of the collaborators in a specific local physical, social, cultural, mental and symbolic space. The four papers and the critical review by the discussant expand our understanding on the role of context by addressing the different layers relevant to context in virtual work: The relevance of a physical place in mobile work, familiarity as a feature of social space in teamwork, the cultural and social space of status cues in communication, and the symbolic space of linguistic markers.
Showcase Symposium: The Role of Information Technology and Work Practices in Relational Coordination
Monday August 10 11:30am – 1:00pm Vancouver Convention Centre: Room 224
In this symposium, four empirical presentations examine how technology enables, constrains and changes work practices and coordination in multi-disciplinary health care organizations, which are prototypical examples of contemporary, complex organizations undergoing remarkable digital transformations. Following the presentations, Wanda Orlikowski and Jody Hoffer Gittell will serve as discussants to provide theoretical and practical insights and lead an interactive group discussion.
