  • Track Description

    The purpose of the Breakthrough Ideas track is to provide a platform for discussing novel, cutting-edge topics in IS research. We are interested in Grand Challenges for the field. By grand challenges, we mean the fundamental problems the field of IS can contribute uniquely to science and to society. We encourage breakthrough ideas that can open up new streams of scientific inquiries based on emerging phenomena, innovative theories, novel methods, rare data sets and new findings. We also welcome revisiting old and familiar topics in a completely new way. In essence, we invite research proposals that are new, exciting, unusual, and possibly even wild. We want ICIS attendees to this track to say, "Wow, that's an interesting idea, I would never have thought of that!" We will evaluate submissions based primarily on the novelty of the ideas, and their potential to inspire subsequent research. We are particularly interested in research that has strong relevance to society. Authors submitting to this track should make explicit strong arguments for their research's novelty, strengths of ideas; relevance to the significant social issues; and the potential to inspire new streams of research. This track is a natural home for innovative and high quality research – research that would otherwise have little chance to be accepted in more conventional tracks in the ICIS program.
