This year's conference theme, 'Digitization for the next generation', invited the community to look ahead. ICIS 2022 kicked off with the Junior Faculty Consortium, held in person for the first time in three years. KIN researchers connected with colleagues from around the world and participated in numerous discussions and panels.
The first speaker from the KIN Center for Digital innovation, Anne-Sophie Mayer, presented the paper 'Managing Organizational Identity Challenges Caused by AI Implementation: The Role of AI principles' (co-authored with Marina Fiedler, Alexandra Haimerl). This paper explores how AI principles can contribute to managing tensions in traditional values of the organisation and values that are reflected within the AI system.
Next, Gislene Feiten Haubrich introduced her research (in co-authorship with Ella Fafermalz) on hybrid working. The study of ten universities' hybrid working policies found that IT is viewed mainly as an infrastructure component. The authors offer a different approach: they explore how technology binds places and people together.
On the final day, Inès Baer spoke about five perspectives on augmentation for the future of work in her paper 'What Are We Augmenting? A Multidisciplinary Analysis of AI-based Augmentation for the Future of Work' (co-authored with Lauren Waardenburg and Marleen Huysman).
It was a cherry on top that Bart van den Hooff, together with Doris Degen, Mario van Vliet, and Eric Onderdelinden, received the best paper award in the 'Governance, Strategy and Value of IS' category for their work 'IS Antagonism: Explaining Negative Value Creation from IS Integration in M&A'.
