About the workshop

This half-day workshop is organized for providing promising papers submitted to PACIS 2015 with developmental feedback. The objectives are to allow authors to network with researchers interested in similar topics and develop their current paper for publishing in premium conferences or journals. The participants will have the opportunity to interact with several PACIS track chairs and scholars in small groups, so that these PDW counsellors can provide mentoring to authors to improve their paper that had been submitted to PACIS.

Roundtables with three to four papers per group will be assigned to one faculty counsellor. To prepare for these sessions, papers are grouped in terms of similar themes. Prior to the workshop, participants will receive the papers in the same group to read and review. Participants will then comment on each other’s papers during the workshop, so that they can learn and benefit from the views of the counsellors as well as the other participants in the same group. The counsellor will facilitate the discussion so that each participant has equal time to receive comments from the group’s members.

Participation at the development workshop is by-invitation only based on the quality of their paper submitted to PACIS 2015.

The following faculty counsellors will serve as mentors (more names still being added):

  • Boh Wai Fong, Nanyang Technological University
  • Geng Xianjun, The University of Texas at Dallas
  • Guo Zhiling, Singapore Management University
  • Heng Cheng Suang, National University of Singapore
  • Huang Ke-wei, National University of Singapore
  • Sia Siew Kien, Nanyang Technological University
  • Xu Dongming, University of Queensland
