Track Description

This track explores current boundaries of established information system (IS) designs and new design issues in IS. Through the Design Science Research (DSR) paradigm, investigators aim to improve the understanding of 1) design methodologies and applications, 2) design behaviors of individuals, teams, and organizations, as well as 3) the cumulative creation of design knowledge, by building and testing novel artifacts (including constructs, models, methods, processes, or systems). Moreover, this track encourages research that can link DSR to neighboring disciplines such as engineering, psychology, and computer science.
