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
