Innovation in Information Infrastructures (III) Workshop

9th - 11th October 2012

For further information contact: i.i.i at ed.ac.uk.

This workshop focuses on the emergence and continuing evolution
of new kinds of Information Infrastructures (IIs) in business,
the corporate world and other settings. By connecting a growing
number of systems and data, Information Infrastructures support user
work in everyday life, but also bring about increased organizational
and technological complexity. As IIs permeate an increasingly broad
range of social and institutional contexts, they generate both new
kinds of challenges for information systems development, and new
social, organizational and market forms as foci for social study.
The workshop will bring together researchers to share empirical
studies, analytical approaches and methodological concerns in the
understanding of Information Infrastructures innovation, and to
explore what the future holds for research in this area.
