The conference has two sides with distinctive formats. The IRIS consists of working groups wherein research papers are allocated one hour of feedback time from working group participants. The papers are read by the group members beforehand, so the papers do not need to be presented, but the one-hour time is used efficiently for constructive feedback.
The SCIS consists of conference papers being presented and discussed in the traditional conference format. Each SCIS paper is assigned a discussant who, after the paper presentation, delivers their comments to the audience.
As is the tradition in IRIS, we have senior and junior keynote talks addressing the conference theme. Kalle Lyytinen (Professor at Case Western Reserve University, US) was present in the very first IRIS seminar and will give his insights on how the community has evolved over the decades. Andrew Burton-Jones (Professor at The University of Queensland, Australia; EiC, MIS Quarterly) will reflect on how the regional AIS communities differ in their approaches to IS research. Finally, Olivia Benfeldt (Assistant Professor at Copenhagen Business School, Denmark) will deliver a junior scholar view on how the experiences, learnings, and education from a Nordic PhD program carries one through the early stages of ones career.
