ECIS 2018 Portsmouth UK


General Info

The 2018 European Conference on Information Systems, to be held in Portsmouth, UK, will be hosted by the University of Portsmouth on June 23rd – 28th, 2018. The theme of the conference: “Beyond Digitization - Facets of Socio-Technical Change” reflects that information systems (IS) consist of both human and technical aspects. The development of the IS discipline since the 1960’s has been characterised by efforts to achieve a forward trajectory from a software-centred focus towards a human- centred focus. This is reflected in the agendas of many of the original socio-technical movements, and underpins the recent resurgence in interest in socio-technical ideas.

The foundation of the IS discipline (in the late Sixties) is built on the proposition that any artefact on which we turn an IS lens cannot be seen as hardware, software or human-based in isolation. This is still true in an increasingly digital world. We, in the IS discipline, are constantly faced with the reality that we engage and pursue an agenda to facilitate change, or redevelopment of organized human activities. The digital

In addition to the conference theme, ECIS hope to attract a range of traditional track themes that have been at the heart of the IS community in Europe over the last quarter century, as well as tracks covering new emergent themes. The aim of the ECIS 2018 will be to form a meeting place for people in the IS field to discuss fundamental and innovative issues related to Information Systems.
