The OCIS program was another wonderful success.  This year’s keynote was given by Robert E. Kraut, the Herbert A. Simon Professor of Human-Computer Interaction at Carnegie Mellon University (http://www.cs.cmu.edu/~kraut/).  The keynote address can be viewed from the OCIS website at http://ocis.aomonline.org/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=549&Itemid=32

There were 103 papers and 8 symposia presented in the OCIS program.  This represented a 55% acceptance rate for papers and 57% acceptance rate for symposia. 

In January 2009, OCIS received 187 papers and 14 symposia proposals for a total of 201 submissions.  This represented a 14% increase over 2008.  In particular, the number of symposia proposals significantly increased (from 2 to 14).At the same time, 377 people registered to review for OCIS (a 20% increase over last year), a total which includes 35 Associate Editors (AEs).   Together this team provided more than 550 reviews and more than 200 AE reports – all completed within 5 weeks!    These reviews not only provided the basis for selecting papers and symposia, but they also provided OCIS submitters with valuable feedback for developing their work.

One of the symposia, designated as an “All Academy Showcase Symposia” on Materiality and Organization Studies was co-sponsored with the Organization and Management Theory and won that Division’s Best Runner-Up Symposium Award.  Congratulations to organizers Anne-Laure Fayard (Polytechnic Institute of New York U.) and John Weeks (IMD).  Presenters also included Brian Pentland (Michigan State U.), Kimberly Elsbach (UC, Davis), Paul Leonardi (Northwestern U.), Beth Bechky (UC, Davis) and discussant Wanda Orlikowski (MIT).
