SCIS 2014: Call for Papers


Roskilde University and Aalborg University welcome you to the Fifth Scandinavian Conference on Information Systems, SCIS 2014. The conference will be held August 10-13, in conjunction with the 37th Information Systems Research Seminar in Scandinavia (IRIS 2014) under the auspices of the Information Systems Research in Scandinavia Association (IRIS).

While most participants are from the Nordic countries, we welcome researchers from all parts of the world to the conference, bringing along and delivering other than the Nordic perspectives on information systems into the discussion.

Conference theme: Designing Human Technologies
Designing Human Technologies is a broad technological concept based on the principle that users, the target group and other interested parties must be involved in ethical and society-related considerations about the design, in the design process itself and in verifying how designs contribute to the fulfillment of needs and solution of a problem.

Working with the theme may include thorough analysis on how designs are used and included in human life and/or how to design solutions for select issues.

Designing Human Technologies includes information technology, but also mobility technology, environment/sustainable technology, energy technology and technology in connection with city design, natural resorts, innovative and appealing space and experiences, physical planning and organisation, climate adaptation, solutions of information and communication technology, policies, products, service and/or experiences.

The theme is also related to the Strategic Research Initiative at Roskilde University, Designing Human Technologies.

The Scandinavian Conference on Information Systems is open for full research papers within the conference theme as well as other areas of information system research. We welcome empirical as well as theoretical and methodological papers.

Paper submission
Papers are not to exceed 6000 words/16 pages. Papers should be formatted according to the Springer LNBIP instructions (LaTex , MS-Word 2003 , MS-Word 2007 ) and submitted through EasyChair.
