Call for Extended Abstracts:
The advent of enterprise systems in the 1990’s provided an important pathway for organizations to innovate, standardize their business processes and to introduce organizational transparency (Klaus et al., 2000, Sedera et al., 2016, Tan et al., 2016). Prior research on enterprise systems has highlighted the technological, operational and knowledge capabilities provided by enterprise systems in enabling innovation in an organization (Srivardhana and Pawlowski, 2007, Lokuge and Sedera, 2016). However, the recent introduction of technologies such as cloud computing, mobile, wearables and social media to the corporate IT portfolio means that organizations are now provided with myriad opportunities to innovate (Huang et al., 2017, Lokuge et al., 2018, Svahn et al., 2017, Nylén and Holmström, 2015). Therefore, the role of enterprise systems in enabling innovation in the IT portfolio is also evolving (Sedera and Lokuge, 2017, Lokuge and Sedera, 2017). In a similar manner, the nature and the role of enterprise systems are also changing, adhering to new technologies like in-memory processing, business intelligence and cloud solutions.

We are inviting interested colleagues to submit an extended abstract of no more than 4 pages, and a list of 3-4 keywords.

Workshop Objectives:
The special interest group of Enterprise Systems (ES) has been hosting its Pre-ICIS workshops since 2006. The primary objective of the workshop is to provide an open and constructive discussion forum of important ES research. The workshop intends to be developmental, in that it will showcase completed and in-progress research, with the intention of improving them to a journal submission. The authors are particularly encouraged to leverage novel theoretical perspectives and approaches to better understand, the design, implementation issues, and consequences of ES for people, work, organizations and society. The organizing committee intends to employ the workshop to identify new ES research domains and to share and develop innovative approaches of ES research. Interested colleagues are invited to submit an extended abstract of no more than 4 pages, and a list of 3-4 keywords.

We welcome qualitative, quantitative, mixed methods, conceptual works and papers that examine research methods appropriate for ES research. We encourage submissions from researchers representing all ontological perspectives. Our intention is to provide a forum for bringing together researchers with similar interests both to share their current work and to plan future directions for the field. We also hope to stimulate future collaboration in research development.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:
•           Novel technological advances in enterprise systems leading to organizational innovations.
•           Emerging organizational models for managing enterprise systems.
•           Opportunities for the modern organization enterprise systems.
•           Challenges in managing enterprise systems in the age of acceleration.
•           Descriptive cases of unique innovations attained through enterprise systems.
•           Regional and global issues pertaining to enterprise systems.
•           The role of enterprise systems in the modern IT portfolio.
•           Enterprise systems governance and organizational economic impact.
