A Sharing Society enables the advanced development of digital information technologies. Governments, organizations, and individuals have gained new capabilities and opportunities for sharing data, information, and knowledge in the world gone digital. The sharing activities bring the new possibility for governments to build an eco-social system for meeting citizens' essential needs; these create new waves of competition among businesses for creating new digital business designs and ways to manage customer relationships; these also enhance people's power in controlling their lives in the digital society. However, a Sharing Society triggers emerging challenges and issues that need to be adequately addressed, such as privacy and the digital divide. The continuous evolution of a Sharing Society significantly influences the efficient and effective use of information systems and advanced digital technologies. These are important to study from multiple perspectives.

ECIS 2019 will be a meeting platform for European and international researchers in the field of Information Systems to discuss and debate this sharing phenomenon. We envisage studies that reflect upon and provide innovative solutions that contribute to the sustainable development of the sharing society.
