Friendly Reminder - Minitrack Proposals for AMCIS 2017 in Boston are due October 17th. Please see the call for minitracks below or the AMCIS 2017 website (http://amcis2017.aisnet.org/submissions/call-for-papers/) for instructions.

We invite the submission of minitrack proposals to the 2017 Americas Conference on Information Systems (AMCIS 2017), which will be held on August 10-12, 2017 in Boston, MA. AMCIS 2017 brings together academics and industry professionals around the world to exchange knowledge related to the AMCIS 2017 theme, A Tradition of Innovation.

A Tradition of Innovation, reflects the program chairs' desire to strengthen and build consensus in existing research streams, while also taking on innovative theoretical or methodological challenges and exploring emerging technology opportunities.  Together, we will create an exciting program that draws upon the best of SIG-driven AMCIS traditions and provides many opportunities for participation, collaboration, and dialogue. We look forward to gathering with you in Boston to strengthen our roots and expand our opportunities in information systems, the digital economy and beyond.

Minitrack chairs will be responsible for (a) promoting their minitrack to generate manuscript submissions to AMCIS 2017; (b) soliciting and assigning reviewers for manuscripts submitted to the minitrack; (c) providing a summary report to authors based on reviews; (d) making recommendations to track chairs about each manuscript submitted to the minitrack; and (e) nominating best papers and reviewers. Important dates and activities are identified below and on the AMCIS 2017 website.

Those interested in submitting a minitrack need to identify a related track for their topic. For a list of AMCIS 2017 program tracks and descriptions, please visit: https://amcis2017.aisnet.org/submissions/track-descriptions/
