4th Nordic Workshop on Digital Foundations of Business, Operations, Strategy and Innovation (DBOSI’22)

Call for position papers
Thursday 10 February 2022 – 13:00 to 17:30 (CET) Friday 11 February 2022 – 09:00 to 15:00 (CET)

This fourth invitational hands-on and small-scale research paper workshop on digital foundations of business, operations, innovation and strategy will bring together a group of researchers from information systems, computer science, operations management, innovation, and strategy. The aim of the workshop is developmental and focuses on presenting and sharing early-stage research that both junior and senior scholars are working on in these areas.

Our intent is to bring together scholarly communities, to provide opportunities for knowledge exchange and collegial interactions, and to pool new insights and ideas for future research, all in a friendly and supportive atmosphere. The workshop will be hosted by Swedish Center for Digital Innovation (SCDI) at Umeå University from February 10-11 2022.

If you are interested in presenting your ongoing research and getting feedback from leading scholars in the field, please submit an extended abstract of no more than 2000 words (excluding references and tables) via email at dbosi22@informatik.umu.se

The submission deadline is December 20 2021 at 23:59 CET. We accept submissions on a first-come, first- served basis, as well as on potential and fit with the workshop topic. We will announce the list of accepted papers by January 17 2022.
