STPIS 2015 – 1st International Workshop on Socio-Technical Perspective in IS development
Despite that a socio-technical perspective have been around for over a half century, it is often forgotten in the IS discourse today. Consequently, many “new approaches” appear to reflect on IS systems problem 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.
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.
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
- Multi-media. 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.
