We invite all IS Junior Faculty to apply to participate in the Junior Faculty Consortium. This should take place on Monday, June 5, 2017 from 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m at the University of Minho, Guimarães, Portugal.

The Junior Faculty Consortium consists of panels, discussions, and interactive sessions built around issues related to becoming a successful member of the professoriate. A select group of highly-successful IS faculty from universities around the world will lead each session. Each participant will have the opportunity to interact with a wide variety of both new and senior faculty and to share their experiences, thoughts, and concerns about developing a career in the academy.

We look forward to receiving your ECIS 2017 Junior Faculty Consortium applications!
