SIG-Social Inclusion is sponsoring a track at AMICS 2019 in 2019 in Cancun, Mexico. We invite submissions for mini-track proposals, due October 19.

The Social Inclusion track welcomes relevant theoretical, empirical, and intervention research, in either completed research or emergent research format, that relates to the mission of SIG Social Inclusion (SIGSI). The purpose of SIGSI is to promote research, pedagogy, and outreach on all aspects of social inclusion in the field of Information Systems (IS). The goal of such efforts is to stimulate greater diversity of thought and personnel in AIS and the IS field overall, and participation of all AIS members in a more socially-aware and inclusive discipline.

Social inclusion research investigates the part IT plays in enabling or inhibiting individuals and social groups' participation in the social structures in which they exist and the needs of under-represented producers or consumers of information systems and technology within the IT field. Topics include: the underrepresentation of gender minorities, race, ethnicities, neurodiversity, and abilities in the IS field, intersectionality of identities (such as ethnicity, gender, ability and socio-economic class), socioeconomic divisions that impact access to or use of technology, designing for the differently-abled, the digital divide, underserved groups in the information society, and a range of topics related to human diversity, and the "haves" and "have nots" in the information society.

Possible minitrack topics could include, but are not limited to:

-         Gender issues in the information systems discipline

-         Inclusion of differently-abled in the information economy

-         Analysis of the digital divide

-         Diversity and inclusion in distributed work

-         Multicultural inclusion and exclusion

-         Managing diversity and inclusion in the IT workforce

-         Methodological challenges in studying diversity and inclusion

We invite the submission of minitrack proposals to the 25th Americas Conference on Information Systems (AMCIS 2019), which will be held on August 15-17, 2019 in Cancun, Mexico. AMCIS 2019 brings together academics and industry professionals around the world to exchange knowledge related to the AMCIS 2019 theme: New Frontiers in Digital Convergence.

Minitrack chairs will be responsible for:
a) promoting their minitrack to generate manuscript submissions to AMCIS 2019;
b) soliciting and assigning reviewers for manuscripts submitted to the minitrack; and
c) making recommendations to track chairs about each manuscript submitted to the minitrack.

To submit a minitrack proposal, you must submit:
a) minitrack chairs (names, emails, affiliation);
b) minitrack title;
c) short description of minitrack for the AMCIS 2019 website (up to 150 words);
