Track 12: Visionary and interdisciplinary Topics

This track focuses on novel, cutting-edge, interesting ideas that come through diverse intellectual approaches, expertise, and perspectives. The track’s objective is to challenge tired orthodoxy and open new inquiry through innovative theory and findings. It welcomes papers that revisit familiar topics in a new way, provide alternative interpretations of prevailing thought, or question fundamental but established assumptions including new or unconventional ways of thinking, doing, and communicating scholarly work. It also relates to novelty with respect to epistemological perspectives, research methods, semantic framing, and literary styles.

Genuine visionary ideas and interdisciplinary contributions are only evident if carefully argued. Papers submitted to this track should get the attention of readers, be clear in their exposition and implications, and stand a good chance of getting readers to say, "Wow, that's interesting; I would never have thought of that!". The novelty of the ideas and contributions is important, of course, but submissions should inspire further research. Visionary ideas and interdisciplinary contributions must be described clearly, logically, and in sufficient depth for their breakthrough impact to be clear. Authors should explicate their ideas, the importance of those ideas, and the value of those ideas for future research as well as for enterprise and society.
