Call for participation: Workshop on Information Systems and Environmentally 
Sustainable Development

Virtual Online Workshop: November 12, 2010 (Web site TBA)
Pre-ICIS Workshop, Saint Louis, MO December 11, 2010
ICIS (http://icis2010.aisnet.org/) is the premier international conference for 
Information Systems.


In the March 2010 issue of MISQ, Watson, Boudreau and Chenpresent a call to arms 
for information systems to address environmental  sustainability. “Specifically, 
as IS researchers, educators, journal editors,  and association leaders, we need 
to demonstrate how the transformative power of  IS can be leveraged to create an 
ecologically sustainable society,” (p. 23).
Inspiration for this program comes from the growing body of work published in  
this area by IS scholars, but particularly the Watson et al. paper is  
recommended reading for those intending to participate.The objective of this 
program of activities is to use the Watson et al. paper as  a manifesto to 
generate directions and goals for the newly formed AIS special  interest group 
SIGGreen (http://siggreen.wikispaces.com/). Participants in this workshop are 
encouraged to employ  this paper as a guide for writing opinion pieces, critical 
overviews, calls for  action, taxonomies, frameworks etc, for one or more of the 
various IS roles  described in the paper (i.e., researcher, educator etc).
We call for abstract (300-500 words) on any  aspects of the Theme as indicated 
above. Note these should not be reports on  specific research projects. 
Acceptance of abstracts will be determined by the  chairs in consultation with 
an editorial panel and based on quality and  relevance to the Theme and the aims 
of SIGGreen. 

Abstracts due: October 8, 2010, sent via email to SIGGreenWorkshop AT gmail
