 MIS Quarterly Special Issue on Information Systems for Symbolic Action: 
 Social Media and Beyond

 Submission Deadline: February 1, 2012

 Guest Editors:

 Mark Aakhus, Rutgers University (aakhus at rutgers.edu)

 This special issue aims to foster Information Systems research in 
 understanding, illustrating, and explaining how IS forms an inherent 
 aspect of human activity and a means of symbolic action. We invite 
 submissions that advance IS theory and research on the intersection of 
 information systems and symbolic action through theoretical review, 
 analysis, and development, empirical and design studies, or large-scale 
 empirics and methodology development. Central issues to be tackled 
 revolve around novel conceptualizations of IS, uses and design of IS, 
 and methods for investigating IS as grounds, means, and outcomes of 
 symbolic action. (The full call is available here: http://www.misq.org/)

 Potential authors that would appreciate early feedback regarding the 
 suitability of their material to the special issue are encouraged to 
 submit a research-in-progress version of their manuscript to a 
 developmental workshop that will be organized in conjunction with ICIS 
 2011. (Potential authors may also send inquiries to the editors that 
 include extended abstracts for advice about relevance to the special 
 issue.) The plan is to invite authors of papers that pass the first 
 round of review to a second developmental workshop in conjunction with 
 ECIS 2012. These workshops are not mandatory but are strongly encouraged 
 as they aim to support authors in preparing and developing their 
 manuscripts. Both workshops will be hosted by the AIS Special Interest 
 Group on Pragmatist IS Research (SIGPrag). More information about these 
 events will be announced at http://www.sigprag.org/.

 Submission deadline for the ICIS 2011 workshop is August 1, 2011.

 Submission Deadline for Special Issue: February 1, 2012

 The full call for papers is available on the MIS Quarterly’s web site 
 at http://www.misq.org/.
