2nd CFP: Workshop on Socio-Technical Perspective in IS development (STPIS'15)


Dear colleagues,

Please consider visiting Stockholm in June 2015 and participating in

1st International Workshop on Socio-Technical Perspective in IS development (STPIS'15)

planned for 9th of June 2015

The main purpose of the workshop is to arrange discussions on using a socio-technical perspective in IS development, the long term goal being to make this workshop a meeting place for the community of IS researchers and practitioners interested in the socio-technical approach.

The discussions will start with a keynote by Prof. Ian Sommerville on:
"Designing software for a million users: it’s not about the technology"

The workshop is attached to CAiSE'15 conference (http://caise2015.dsv.su.se/)

Full description see at http://stpis2015.blogs.dsv.su.se/

Short description is presented below
Despite that a socio-technical perspective has been around for over a half century, it is often forgotten in the Information Systems (IS) discourse today. Consequently, many “new approaches” appear to reflect on IS systems problems, such as modern IT systems poorly adjusted to the external or/and internal environment (e.g. market, organizational culture) of organizations in which they are (to be) deployed. We strongly believe that it is high time the social-technical perspective took its proper place in IS research, practice and teaching.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

Case studies using socio-technical approach
Information system design using socio-technical approach
Socio-technical comparative studies of technology/IS adoption
Socio-technical analysis, design, development and integration of
    – health care systems
    – crisis management systems
    – information security management systems
    – learning systems
    – privacy enhanced technology
Societal Security from a socio-technical perspective
Ethnographic and Anthropological aspects of IS design and adoption
IT business alignment from a socio-technical perspective

We invite submissions of short and long papers and multi-media materials in the following categories:

    Position papers
    Idea papers
    Experience reports
    Research papers

Besides papers, we accept submissions in form of multi-media materials, for example, recorded video or animated presentation, describing industrial experience of using socio-technical perspective for IS analysis or development. In case of acceptance, an extended abstract is published in the workshop proceedings, while the multi-media material itself or a link to it is placed on the workshop site.

Preliminary deadlines
Abstracts - 7th of March 2015
Papers -15 Marsh 2015
Notification - 15 April 2015
