Track Description

The interplay between human behavior and information systems is a perennial topic in our discipline, but it has never been more important with the expanding infusion of technology into our social and work lives. The question of whether technologies shape and influence human behaviors, or human behaviors inform the use and design of technologies, or some combination continues to foster debate. This track focuses on the interaction of human behaviors and information systems at the individual, group, organizational, and societal levels as well as the intersection across levels. We are interested in broader interactions that occur in organizational and social contexts, rather than more micro-level interactions between humans and technology. We welcome submissions that rigorously test, extend, or challenge current beliefs, assumptions, and theories. Research that examines less-explored areas is especially encouraged. All research methods are welcome – qualitative, quantitative, or mixed-method – as well as conceptual articles that offer theoretical insights and directions for future research.
