    We are looking for papers to be submitted to the following minitrack at AMCIS 2018. Deadline for papers is February 28.

    Minitrack 2: Information Systems for Sustainable and Resilient Businesses and Supply Chains

    Information Systems (IS) enable organizations to develop and promote sustainable and resilient strategies, business practices, and supply chain processes that focus on all aspects of the triple bottom line: Profit, People, and Planet. This mini-track is for research investigating the role IS plays in enabling these sustainable and resilient business strategies and practices, including research examining sustainability within individual firms and across firm boundaries. This also includes disaster recovery supply chains and the application of IS to relief and recovery in the wake of multiple natural disasters. Another promising area is using technologies like blockchain and cryptocurrencies to facilitate supply chain transparency and to improve energy markets. Research focused on IS to coordinate sustainability efforts within a firm and among supply chain partners is encouraged regardless of method. Inter-disciplinary research is particularly welcome.
