AOM’s Annual Meeting will take place online with mostly synchronous (live) sessions and a few asynchronous (pre-recorded) sessions. We would like to highlight the following synchronous sessions (all times refers to UTC-4/New York time), in particular:
Professional Development Workshops (PDWs)
We have two exciting PDWs to be held in synchronous online sessions with the following schedule:
- The rise of computational methods in theory building (session 340), Saturday, 31 July 11:30 – 14:00 EDT.
- Integrating Induction and Abduction for Theory Development in Big Data Research (session 425), Saturday, 31 July 15:30 – 17:00 EDT.
OCIS Paper Development Workshop (OPDW)
The workshop welcomes participants to discuss their OCIS-related research in progress with senior faculty and other workshop participants. Confirmed mentors include Ola Henfridsson, Elena Karahanna, Ann Majchrzak, Matthew Weber, Youngjin Yoo, and Manju Ahuja. Please submit your paper to Ola Henfridsson (OPDW Chair) by July 15, 2021. Acceptance (which is required for workshop attendance) will be notified shortly thereafter. The workshop (session 1656) will be held on Sunday, 1 August, 10 - 11:30 EDT.
DC / JFC Consortia
Congratulations to all participants! Both events (session 84 and session 85, respectively) will be held in a synchronous format on Friday, 30 July from 10:00 to 14:00 EDT. Please contact Michael Barrett (DC Chair) and Kathy Chudoba (JFC Chair) for more information.
Plenary Session and Business Meeting
The OCIS Business Meeting will be a synchronous online event on Monday, 2 August at 9:00 EDT followed immediately by the OCIS Plenary (also synchronous), at 10:00 EDT. This year’s plenary session will feature Melissa Mazmanian, professor of Informatics at the University of California, Irvine as Keynote Speaker. She will deliver a talk titled “Temporal maps and mazes: The intricacies of work time in a connected, tracked, and pandemic-infused world.” We look forward to seeing all members at these two major OCIS events.
This year, the OCIS paper sessions will be mostly synchronous. A few asynchronous sessions (and recorded) will be offered, and can be reviewed at any time during the conference. The program of the annual meeting is accessible here.
