The process had begun for determining the slate of Information Systems papers and panels for ICA 2008. We had a total of 111 papers/abstracts submitted and two panel proposals. We also had 80 people agree to be reviewers, which made it much easier to assign papers based upon expressed areas of interest. My thanks to all those who agreed to review! I know it is a busy time of year, but I also encourage you to try to "meet-or-beat" the deadline of December 10th for returning your reviews. This will give you the most time to complete detailed comments and reviews, while allowing me the time I need to determine acceptances and submit our slate to ICA Headquarters.
Speaking of ICA Headquarters, Division Chair Paul Bolls has been working with them to find a location for the Division Social…which will be scheduled immediately following our business meeting in May.
Enjoy the holiday season, and I look forward to seeing you (and your research) in Montreal.
Rob Potter, Vice Chair
