Many industry and academic reports are describing the combination of the availability of ready-to-use and easy-to-implement information technology (IT) solutions, many times in the form of cloud-computing services and applications, and the presence of a tech-savvy new workforce who is able and willing to acquire and use these services as a new trend called "consumerization of IT". In this perspective, business executives will seek the IT solutions they need in the marketplace and rapidly put them to work, with or without the assistance and accordance of IT departments.

Is this a revival of the decentralization of IT decisions that happened when mini and microcomputers were first introduced in organizations, or is it something entirely new? Is this new workforce, full of Millennials and their gadgets, entirely different from the previous ones?  These are examples of questions that are surfacing, as this concept is fast developing and widening in scope. For instance, consumerization of IT could also be used to represent the fact that today in most organizations, it is consumers who represent the larger part of IT services´ users. Related to this, new questions may arise, like what are the challenges, risks and opportunities posed by this trend to IT strategy and IT management? How might These trends affect the competitive use of IT in companies?

The organizing committee invites you to submit to Conf-IRM 2013 your research work, teaching cases, and proposals for panels and tutorials, dealing with the main topic of the conference or related to one of the several topics covered by the 15 tracks, listed below.
