Minitrack: Bright ICT – Beyond Security and Privacy Concerns Information Security and Privacy (SIGSEC) AMCIS 2020 (https://amcis2020.aisconferences.org/) Salt Lake City, Utah, August 12-16 2020 CALL FOR PAPERS Global information and communication infrastructures and platforms have made businesses and the broader society more efficient and effective. However, many serious side effects have emerged alongside these information and communications technology (ICT) platforms, imperiling the foundation of future not only in a particular country, but also across borders. To reduce the substantial adverse effects on our economy and national security, many researchers pay high attention to the negative effects of ICT and investigate concepts and approaches to drastically reduce its undesirable consequences. Beyond simple concerns of security and privacy, we have to establish safe and secure ICT platforms which can preventively identify and mitigate malicious anonymous security and privacy concerns across the globe. This minitrack extends the vision of ICT-enabled Bright Society adopted as an AIS Grand Vision Project (in short, Bright ICT Initiative) in 2014 (see Lee 2015). In doing so, this minitrack encompasses the development of relevant technologies, business models, public policies, social norms, international agreements, and national indexes for bright, secure, and trusted ICT platforms (including Internet architecture). Systematic research on a global scale is particularly welcomed. This minitack invites original research articles addressing a broad coverage of technical, managerial, economic, and strategic solutions towards developing the bright ICT platforms, with emphasis on global trust building. Papers may employ any applicable IS research methods (e.g., case study, survey, analytical modeling, experiments, computational models, design science, etc.). Topics of interest, but not limited to: Preventive bright ICT paradigm Bright ICT in global environments Cross-cultural security awareness Compliance and liability Cross-cultural views on privacy Privacy management and concerns Ethics in privacy and security Important Dates: January 6, 2020: Manuscript submissions for AMCIS 2020 (Now Open) at PCS Submission (https://new.precisionconference.com/user/login?society=ais) February 28, 2020: AMCIS manuscript submissions closes for authors at 5:00pm MST (completed research and Emergent Research Forum (ERF)) April 22, 2020: Camera-ready papers are due at 5:00pm MST We look forward to receiving your best works for the minitrack of Bright ICT.
