Call for Workshops


The 11th International Conference on Informatics and Semiotics in Organisations (ICISO2009) will be held in Beijing China on 10 – 12, April, 2009. ICISO2009 aims to provide a focal forum for active researchers, practitioners, business and industrial professionals and academics from diversified domains of information system and with diversified backgrounds to get together, to share latest research achievements and practical experiences, to exchange in-depth findings and innovative ideas, and in particular to harness the greatest challenges in the changing era and think seriously into the future.

Proposals for workshops are invited for consideration of Organisational Semiotics Community sponsorship and affiliation with ICISO2009. Affiliated workshops will be held in parallel with the ICISO2009. The purpose of these workshops is to provide a platform for presenting novel ideas in a less formal and possibly more focused way than the conferences themselves. As such, they also offer a good opportunity for young researchers to present their work and to obtain feedback from an interested community. The format of each workshop is to be determined by the organisers, but it is expected that they contain ample time for general discussion. The preferred format is one-day workshops, but other formats will also be considered.
