In the November issue of Information Systems Journal, Ofir Turel, Christian Matt, Manuel Trenz, and Christy Cheung published a special issue on "Digitization of the Individual". In their introductory article, the guest editors introduce the intertwined three‐layer framework of technology and digitised individuals and outline important perspectives for studying the interactions between technology and the digitised individual:

A special thanks goes to Editor-in-Chief Prof. Robert Davison (City University of Hong Kong) for his guidance and to the associate editors and reviewers who made this special issue possible by contributing their expertise and their precious time.
The yearly workshop on the Digitization of the Individual, usually held in conjunction with the International Conference on Information Systems, will pause in 2020 and 2021 and return in 2022 when we will hopefully be able to all meet in person and discuss emerging issues around the Digitization of the Individual.
We look forward to seeing all of you soon!
Take care and stay safe,
