The purpose with the workshop
A half-day workshop that will consist of a keynote speaker and presentation of accepted papers in a round table fashion. The workshop should be seen as a springboard for ideas and early-stage manuscripts. The format is meant to encourage reflective discussions between researchers interested in surveillance in the digital society. The workshop will target junior and established academics that are attending ECIS, and we particularly encourage early career and PhD students to submit. Submissions will be screened but not reviewed, and we will apply a generous policy in this “first round” and accept all papers that fall within the above stated theme/scope of the workshop.

Description of Workshop
Surveillance is not a new phenomenon, digitalization has however enabled surveillance of a magnitude we have not seen before. On social media people share the intimacies of their lives, leading to a huge repository of information. Additionally the volume of digital surveillance devices, such as stationary surveillance systems (CCTV), mobile devices such as smartphones, body-worn cameras, cameras in cars, drones and a variety of sensors. The development in algorithms and artificial intelligence, advances also the analytical step in surveillance, for example by face and motion recognition. The workshop invites short papers that reflect upon surveillance in the digital society by looking at how these practices are constructed, organised, experienced and regulated. A non-exhaustive list of different angles may include (but are not limited to):

Self-surveillance - The attention one pays to one’s behaviour whilst, actuality or virtuality, being observed.
Organizational surveillance - Digitized work-places enabling the monitoring of employees, partners, and customers posing ethical dilemmas
Societal surveillance - The disproportionate, unlimited citizen online monitoring, enabled by new anti-terrorism laws, criticized for turning citizens into suspects.
Sousveillance - The act of surveilling others as they surveil you
Resistance towards surveillance - The use of strategies to avoid or disrupt the surveillance mechanisms
Submission Requirements/Limits (e.g. word limits, formats etc):
Participants are invited to submit short papers in form of extended abstracts with a maximum length of 4 pages. The file should be submitted in pdf-format.


Submission Guidelines
All papers must be original and not simultaneously submitted to another journal or conference except for the ECIS 2019 main conference. It is okay to submit a short version of a paper that has been submitted to ECIS, regardless of whether it has been accepted or rejected.

All papers should be in PDF format and may not exceed 4 pages (references are excluded from this page count).

The format is meant to encourage reflective discussions between researchers interested in surveillance in the digital society. Submissions will be screened but not reviewed, and we will apply a generous policy in this “first round” and accept all papers that fall within the theme/scope of the workshop.
