  • Track Description

    The interaction between people and information technology is an exciting area of study that highlights the multi-disciplinary roots of our field. Human behavior affects the entire life cycle of IT, including its design, development, adoption, deployment and use and in turn, IT affects the way people behave. There is a rich history of research under this broad umbrella, but the interaction of human behavior and information systems continues to challenge both researchers and practitioners. This track focuses on these challenges, at both individual and group levels of analysis. We invite submissions that test, extend, or change our current beliefs about issues in this area. We especially welcome controversial pieces that will challenge the audience's thinking regarding taken-for-granted assumptions, models, and research practices. The track welcomes both traditional and innovative methodologies, including but not limited to social network analysis, ethno-methodology, and hermeneutics.

    Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

    • How do individual, group, and information technology artifacts interact to influence human behavior?
    • How do expectations regarding technology's capabilities and availability alter development, deployment and use in a "totally integrated – always on world"?
    • How does use of one system impact people's willingness and/or ability to switch to a new system?
    • What are the essential elements of training in a diverse, multicultural environment?
    • How does human behavior change – both in terms of interactions with technology and with other humans – with the proliferation of online social networking technologies such as Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube?
    • How should we conceptualize the IT artifact? What aspects of it are relevant when discussing human behavior?
    • How can we model human-technology systems where people and technology are closely intertwined?
    • How does the social environment influence individuals' and groups' interactions with information technology?
    • How do people design their knowledge, collaboration, learning or work spaces and how could these activities be supported or guided?
    • How can we improve people's participation in the entire life cycle of IT?
    • How do consumer-IT or user-provided IT influence human behavior in collectives, such as communities-of-practice, work groups or project teams?
    • How can IT be adapted in order to align with changing human behavior?
