management sciences to come together to share ideas and opinions, and to
present original research work. The goal is to create an opportunity for the
dissemination of knowledge between the two communities, as well as to enable
mutual critical discussion of current research.


The conference solicits original research and experience-based case study
papers, as well as proposals for demonstrations. It welcomes
interdisciplinary papers on methods from the social sciences in the study of
information systems, applying information technology in the study of social
phenomena, or applying social concepts in the design of information systems.
