Call for AMCIS 2020 SIGDSA Mini-Track Proposals

AMCIS 2020, the 26th Americas Conference on Information Systems, August 12 - 16, 2020, Salt Lake City, Utah

The unprecedented increase in the amount of data available for processing has created novel opportunities for individuals, organizations, and society. For instance, the field of cognitive analytics mimics the human brain to draw inference from unstructured data. This is creating a huge impact in fields like healthcare, finance, energy, and sports by assisting in complex analytical tasks. The ability to manage big data and glean insightful knowledge is also leading towards process-centric transformations in organizations. At a higher level, big data and analytics applications are able to drive a positive impact on society in the areas of poverty mitigation, health and well-being, food safety, energy, and sustainability.

Organizations are allocating greater resources to enhance and develop new innovative applications of advanced analytics. As organizations transform into data and analytics centric enterprises (e.g. health insurance companies, automobile companies), more research is needed on both the technical and organizational aspects. On one hand, research focused on the creation and application of new data science approaches like deep learning, cognitive computing can inform us about the different ways to improve decision making and outcomes. On the other hand, research on organizational issues in the analytics context can inform industry leaders on handling various organizational and technical opportunities along with various challenges associated with building and executing big data-driven organization. Examples may include, data and process governance and ethical issues, leadership, and driving innovation.

This track in Data Science and Analytics seeks original research that promotes technical, theoretical, design science, pedagogical, and behavioral research as well as emerging applications in analytics and big data. Topics include but are not limited to: data analytics & visualization from varied data sources such as sensors or IoT data, text, multimedia, clickstreams, user-generated content involving issues dealing with curation; management and infrastructure for (big) data; standards, semantics, privacy, security, legal and ethical issues in big data, analytics and KM (knowledge management); intelligence and scientific discovery using big data; analytics applications in various domains such as smart cities, smart grids, financial fraud detection, digital learning, healthcare, criminal justice, energy, environmental and scientific domains,? sustainability and the like; business process management applications such as process discovery, performance analysis, process conformance and mining using analytics and KM, cost-sensitive, value-oriented, and data-driven decision analysis, and optimization. Visionary research on new and emerging topics that make innovative contributions to the field are also welcome.
