For over 50 years, ACM SIGMIS Computers and People Research (CPR) conference has engaged the academic and practitioner communities in understanding issues pertaining to the intersection of information technology and people. From its roots in the IT workforce, CPR has broadened its focus to deal with all aspects of this important and complex relationship. We are delighted to welcome the 2019 ACM SIGMIS CPR conference to exciting Nashville, Tennessee from June 20-22, 2019.

In the world of information systems, some issues are transitory, and some endure. The focus of the 2019 conference is on these enduring questions. A few of the enduring questions are:

Individual
• What leads to individuals resisting the use of IT (resistance, workarounds, BYOD)?
• What are the impacts of emerging technologies (social media, analytics, blockchain) on workers?
• How does the design of a system or technology impact worker acceptance and/or resistance?
• How do individual humans interact with robotic co-workers?

Organizational
• How can organizations understand emerging technologies and their potential risks and opportunities?
• What factors impact retention and turnover in the IT workforce?
• What unique challenges exist for managing IT workers, and how do we meet those challenges?
• What is the business value of IT? From what does this value derive?
• What are the best ways to organize IT work?
• Will emerging IT enable new organizational forms? What are those forms?

Societal
• How does IT impact the nature of work? How will IT impact the nature of work in the future?
• How can we address the various digital divides?
• How does the interaction of IT and people impact innovation, and how is innovation impacted by this interaction?
• How does IT impact entrepreneurial activities?


Workforce
• Why are some demographic groups under-represented in the IT workforce?
• What are the characteristics of the IT workforce? How are these characteristics changing?
• How can universities best prepare students for careers in information systems and information technology?
• What are the key skills for entry into the IT workforce? How are these skills changing?
• What ethical issues result from embedding IT in work?
• What security and privacy issues result from embedding IT in work?

IS Education
• How do we help students develop the skills needed for entry into, and success in the IT workforce?
• How can we attract promising students to IS programs?
• How should IS programs deal with emerging technologies?
• How do IS programs differentiate themselves from computer science, analytics, data science and other overlapping programs?
• How can universities best prepare students for careers in information systems and information technology?

In addition to the conference theme, we also invite submissions to a general Information Systems track that broadly addresses issues at the intersection of information technology and people.

We look forward to welcoming you!
