User-Centered Information Systems

With the ambient availability of information technologies new challenges and opportunities for information systems research specifically on the individual level of the user are rising.
The track “User-Centered Information Systems” (UIS) emphasizes research with focus on understanding and designing the interaction of users with digital artefacts. In particular, we are interested in research investigating the IS lifecycle from a holistic viewpoint covering development and management aspects following the “user, use & utility”-paradigm.
We welcome submissions of any methodological foundation that theoretically and practically contribute to the advanced understanding and design of user-centered information systems.

Potential topics

  • Business Models and Value Chains for NIS
  • Development/Modelling of UCS
  • User Interface Design for UCS and Designing for User Experiences
  • Value-oriented Design of UCS (e.g. Privacy)
  • Adoption, Use and Diffusion of NIS
  • Data-driven Solutions for UCS
  • Hedonic UCS
  • Persuasion and Gamification in UCS
  • Impact of NIS to Users and Customers
