This track intends to gather researchers and doctoral students who conduct research related to the role of culture in IS. “Culture in IS” refers to at least 4 meanings: national cultures, corporate and organizational culture, Internet culture, and cultural industries. National culture; refers to the effect that national, regional or ethnic cultures may have on the use of information systems, especially online behavior on social media or buying behavior on e-commerce sites. Information and communication technologies (ICTs) have provided the infrastructure for multinational businesses, created new cultural connections irrespective of geographic boundaries and distances, and allowed an increasingly mobile global population to be connected and interconnected.

“Corporate or organizational culture” refers to the values and beliefs within organizations and how they impact adoption and use of information systems. Turning this around, studies in this area could explore how the adoption of new enterprise systems changes organizational culture. In a less normative meaning, it may also refer to the social capital or the symbolic human capital issues that impact use and investments on technology within companies.

Internet culture is both represented and embodied by the Millennials and Digital Natives generations and how they leverage and interact with Internet and mobile resources differently from other generations, and what impacts this may bring to organizations that wish to attract the digital workforce.

Finally, “cultural industries” refers to the study of new industries that are enabled by information systems and technology to promote the diffusion of cultural artefacts and digital products worldwide, pop culture musing being an example.
