MIS Quarterly Executive Academic Workshops

In preparation for the December 2019 Special Issue on:  Delivering Business Value through Enterprise Blockchain Applications<http://misqe.org/ojs2/templates/common/CFPMISQESblockchainfinal.pdf>
Sponsored by: The Society for Information Management (SIM) and MIS Quarterly Executive

You may submit to one of two workshops:
ICIS 2018 in San Francisco, USA on Wednesday, December 12, 2018 from 1 to 5pm
HICSS 2019 in Hawaii, USA on Tuesday, January 8, 2019 1-4 pm

In preparation for MIS Quarterly Executive’s Special Issue on Delivering Business Value through Enterprise Blockchain Applications, we invite you to submit an abstract for presentation at one of two pre-conference SIM Academic Workshops.  We will hold one workshop just before ICIS in San Francisco and one just before HICSS in Hawaii.  The purpose of these pre-conference workshops is to help develop papers for possible consideration for the special issue.

The special issue aims to examine the strategic opportunities, management challenges, and emerging practices to realize the promised value from enterprise blockchain applications. We encourage submissions based on original in-depth case studies or other field-based research that provide practical frameworks, proven best practices, and rich descriptions of clearly valuable blockchain applications. Our aim is to attract papers that highlight what is real, live, and being used rather than what is merely aspirational.
The CfP for the special issue is here: http://misqe.org/ojs2/templates/common/CFPMISQESblockchainfinal.pdf
