Mini-Track: The State of Computing Professionals:  Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow

Track: Human Capital in Information Systems (SIGLead)

Description:  This minitrack seeks groundbreaking research regarding emerging issues facing the computing workforce, career streams, professional development, and work-family balance of IS professionals (both technical and managerial), as well as ethical, societal, and legal issues related to computing professionals.  This minitrack covers issues relating to computing professionals and human capital at all levels of analysis including individual, department or workgroup, and industry, as well as external (e.g., contractor, consultant) versus internal (e.g., in-house) IS professionals.  Those studies which develop new theory or extend extant theory on issues such as the stigma associated with the computing profession or the professional identity of computing professionals are example papers one might expect in this minitrack. Additionally research on attracting students to the computing professions, and developing a more diverse computing workforce are also welcomed. Furthermore, all methodologies and research paradigms that focus on computing-related personnel are appropriate for submission to this minitrack.
