Content of the panels

Business informatics in particular deals with highly topical, visionary and correspondingly controversial issues. In the context of this year’s WI theme “WI for Grand Challenges – Grand Challenges for WI”, panels offer an important forum to create a better understanding of topics with high relevance for the business informatics community by including the diverse perspectives of top-class experts and the audience and to discuss innovative research questions and solution approaches based on this.

Technological progress, increasingly globalized economic competition, a growing interdependence of actors in economic competition, and societal change are just a few of the many changes that create Grand Challenges and thus raise new research questions or challenge established perspectives in business informatics. We therefore welcome panels that address these challenges, discuss novel approaches, present exciting perspectives, or build bridges to other disciplines. We also welcome panel proposals with innovative design elements that encourage interaction or the communication of content. The length of the planned panels should not exceed 90 minutes.
