ICIS 2014 Junior Faculty Consortium
Sunday, 14 December 2014, 8:30 am – 4:30pm
The University of Auckland Business School
Invitation and Overview

Applications are invited from IS junior faculty to participate in the Junior Faculty Consortium which will take place on Sunday 14 December 2014 from 8:30am – 4:30pm. The event will be held at University of Auckland Business School Auckland, New Zealand.

The Junior Faculty Consortium revolves around panels, group-discussions, Q&A sessions with senior colleagues, and other interactive activities to promote active and successful membership in the international IS academic community. Each activity will be facilitated by a group of highly successful IS faculty from universities around the world in order to expose junior participants to a wide and nuanced set of successful experiences.

Topics that might be covered include: research strategies, publishing issues, building a network of colleagues, teaching strategies and issues, tenure pitfalls and experiences, time management, collegiality and academic norms, and work-life balance.

The consortium is intended to not only provide some answers, but to provoke you to think about your own personal issues and challenges to become successful in academia.


Eligible participants include all AIS members in their first four years in an academic position (including post-docs). The number of participants is limited in order to maintain the richness and intimacy of the experience.
