WG8.6 working conference: "Re-Imagining Diffusion of Information Technology and Systems: Opportunities and Risks", June 5th, Guimaraes, Portugal

In recent years, the Working Group's original focus, on technology diffusion and adoption, has been overtaken by myriad technical developments: the social media, mobile computing, cloud computing, agile methods, and so on. The cycle of innovation has sped up, with profound impacts on the way organizations and societies engage with transfer and diffusion of IT systems within and between organizations, in interactions with customers, and throughout society in general.

The question is no longer how to adopt and diffuse information technologies, but how to assess and manage those that best serve the larger purposes of businesses and societies. At our last conference in Lungskile, Sweden in August, 2016 we discussed the evolution of the field and whether the time was right to identify and discuss emerging trends for a new agenda, one that is consistent with our original mission but adapted to today’s viral diffusion environment.

To this end, we solicit short position-style papers (5 pages max.) for a working conference to formulate new directions for the Group that will address emerging trends, in alignment with our original charter. The date for the meeting is June 5th 2017, and it will be held in Guimaraes to coincide with ECIS 2017. Further details, including possible topics, may be found in the Call for Papers, which also includes links for registration and accommodation.

Final versions of all papers must by submitted to EasyChair by 27th May, in PDF format. Papers should conform to the ECIS template (click here), be no more than 5 pages in length and adhere to the requirements for a position paper, as set out in the Call for Papers (see above)
