TREO (Technology Research, Education, and Opinion) Talks will be included for the first time at ICIS 2018. They provide attendees a new opportunity to present their research ideas, education innovations, or opinion papers related to any area of information systems (IS) or information technology (IT). TREO Talks submissions will be 1-page abstracts that will be editorially reviewed to ensure that they are IS related and appropriate in nature. Accepted TREO Talks abstracts will be presented at a TREO Talks session on the first day of the conference prior to the opening reception (Thursday, for ICIS 2018).

Topics that might be appropriate for a TREO Talk session:

  • A research idea that you are contemplating, but have not started yet
  • A research idea that you are developing and would like feedback on
  • A research idea that you would like to invite collaborators to join you
  • A cutting edge research topic that you would like feedback on
  • A teaching tip for an IS/IT class
  • An innovative teaching idea for an IS/IT class
  • An idea regarding a new or innovative class for an IS/IT curriculum
  • Innovative things that you are doing in your IS/IT class
  • An opinion on an issue facing the IS field (e.g., journals, promotion), or any aspect of IS/IT
