4th Design Science Research in Information Systems and Technologies
(DESRIST) 2009 conference

* In-Cooperation with ACM, SIGCHI, SIGMIS, SIGCAS, and SIGDA.


Location: Philadelphia, PA, USA

Date: May 7-8, 2009


Theme: Diversity in Design Science


Design Science research is becoming firmly established as a research
paradigm in several disciplines related to information sciences,
information systems and technologies. The Design Science research
community believes that Design Science involves creating, constructing,
studying and evaluating innovative artifacts such as constructs,
frameworks, models, methods, and systems; as well as the study of
methods, behaviors, and processes related to design. 


Design, by definition, is aimed at creating things that did not exist in
the world. Design Science, then, aims at furthering our understanding of
how this comes about. Modes to achieve this include actually designing
things, constructing abstractions that can help in this designing, and
studying design activities at individual, group, organizational,
industrial and societal levels of analyses. This notion of Design and
Design Science presents innumerable challenges for information
technologies because of the inherently interdependent nature of
information technologies and the phenomena they are expected to
represent, supplement, support, automate and transform.


Call for Contributions



The Fourth DESRIST Conference, in-cooperation with ACM, is a meeting
place that will bring together researchers and practitioners engaged in
Design Science research in the broadest sense. Questions and concerns in
Design Science, therefore, relate to choosing domains in which
individuals and teams would intervene, the context in which these
interventions would take place, and the consequences of these
interventions. We invite contributions (manuscripts, demos and panels)
that describe your work in the area of Design Science research. These
include but are not limited to:


* Science of Design and Design Theory

* Philosophical foundations of Design Science 

* Evaluation of Design Science Research

* Infrastructure Design

* Design Processes

* Representation for Design 

* Design Evolution

* Organizational Design 

* Design for Innovation 

* Design Economics

* Modularity and Rules in Design

* Architectures for Design

* Meta-Design Control in Design

* Design of Software-Intensive Systems


The domains may include (but not limited to): Software, Services,
Database, Business Processes, Information Systems, User Interfaces,
Knowledge Discovery and Management, Data Mining, Medical, Health and
Bio-Informatics, Social and Virtual Collaboration, Networking and
Multimedia Systems, Grid and Peer-to-Peer Computing, and Pervasive
