The goal of special sessions (minimum 4 papers; maximum 9) is to provide a focused discussion on innovative topics. All accepted papers will be published in a special section of the conference proceedings book, under an ISBN reference, and on digital support. All papers presented at the conference venue will be available at the SCITEPRESS Digital Library. SCITEPRESS is a member of CrossRef and every paper is given a DOI (Digital Object Identifier). The proceedings are submitted for indexation by Conference Proceedings Citation Index, The Institution of Engineering and Technology, The DBLP Computer Science Bibliography, Engineering Index (EI) and SCOPUS.

Special Session on Socio-technical Dynamics in Information Systems - STDIS 2015


Monique Janneck
Lübeck University of Applied Sciences

Information technology is deeply interwoven with personal, social, and organizational developments: Technology changes work routines as well as personal habits or communication between people or groups, has an impact on political decisions and legislation, enables new forms of business and customer relations and so forth. The aim of this special session is to shed more light on the dynamic interplay between technological and social systems, especially regarding innovative web-based systems and technologies.?? Papers with a technological focus (e.g. dealing with innovative web technologies or systems and their potential socio-technical impact) or a social / organizational focus (e.g. case studies on the impact of technology in a certain context) are equally welcome. Especially interdisciplinary research is desirable.
