Dear colleagues,

As part of the *PRODOK* series of PhD seminars, the German Academic
Association for Business Research is offering a course on “*Advanced Topics
in Information Systems Theory*” from July 24-27 in Hamburg, Germany.

The course focuses on (a) building a foundational understanding of what
theory is and what role it plays in research, (b) developing basic
theorizing skills and an initial familiarity with extant theorizing
strategies, and (c) understanding strategies to develop and publish own
theoretical contributions. For further details on the course, including a
detailed syllabus and a registration link, please see the course homepage


The course welcomes PhD students at all levels of their research and thesis
projects and is open to students from any subject area or discipline (even
though a large portion of readings, examples, and discussions will focus on
the business and information systems engineering discipline as a subject
area). *Application deadline is June 12, 2018*.

Beyond this course, the IS-specific program of *PRODOK* also includes
courses on “Design Science,” “Data Science as a Research Method,” and
“Current Issues in Information Systems: Blockchain Economics in Theory and
Practice.” For a complete overview and access to the other courses, please

relevant for IS scholars are listed under “Business Information Systems
