Dear AIS Colleagues,

Minitrack: Stakeholders in Open Source Software

We invite submissions to the mini-track, "Open Source Software" within the Openness in Research and Practice track for AMCIS 2018 (submissions due February 28,2018). This mini-track welcomes theoretical, empirical, and intervention research, in either completed research or emergent research forum (research-in-progress) format, which relates to OSS development and use. We seek submissions around topics related to the OSS stakeholders, including those who collaborate in the creation of OSS (i.e. volunteers, paid developers, students, consultants, educational institutions, for-profit companies, foundations, governments) and those who use OSS (i.e. individuals, educational institutions, for-profit companies, governments). Understanding how these stakeholders interface with each other historically and presently through the software, OSS platforms (i.e. GitHub), social networks, licenses, norms, culture, financial exchanges etc. is of interest for this mini-track.  Further, the impact of these interactions on individual and organizational behaviors and individual psychological outcomes would fit with the theme of the mini-track.
Topics of interest included, but are not limited to:
Influence of public sector regulations on open source software development and use
Organizational challenges associated with use of open source software
Stakeholder coalitions that enhance or impede the diffusion of open source software
Theories and research frameworks to investigate relationships among open source stakeholders
Public policy impacts of open source software use
Developer interactions and policies
The impact of governance structures and policies
