IFIP Working Group 8.2

9-10 December in Dublin Ireland (Pre-ICIS 2016)

IFIP WG 8.2 has a distinguished history in shaping research agendas around information technology and organisation.  The 1984 Manchester Working Conference, for instance, has been long regarded as a key moment in the movement to embrace more pluralistic, post-positivist research approaches within the information systems (IS) field.  Subsequent working conferences built on this gathering by promoting and developing interpretive modes of enquiry into IS and organisational phenomena, thus shaping the formation of a generation of IS researchers.  Now, more than three decades after the landmark Manchester event, we hope that Dublin in 2016 will provide a site to contemplate a re-gathering and re-focusing of attention on possible new kinds of research encounters with technology and organisation.

The IFIP WG 8.2 Working Conference will run immediately before the International Conference on Information Systems (ICIS 2016), which will also be held in Dublin from 11 – 14 December 2016. Please visit the IFIP WG 8.2 WC2016 Website for more details.
