Track: Design Science TrackMinitrack: The use of DSR in Post-graduate
studies and supervision in IS
The adoption of DSR as a research approach whenever artefacts are
developed within IS has seen substantial growth in recent years. This
trend was also found in post-graduate studies where students are
involved in the development of an artefact and then adopt DSR in their
Several authors such as Vijay Vaishnavi, Bill Keuchler, Al Hevner and
Shirley Gregor published on the topic of Design Science research.
However, using DSR in postgraduate studies is a relatively new way of
conducting research and the presentation of a DSR study within
dissertations and theses poses unique challenges and opportunities. 
This track explores the techniques, opportunities, challenges and best
practices adopted for both students and supervisors when adopting and
using DSR within post-graduate studies. 
We invite submissions for the use of DSR in Post-graduate studies and
supervision in IS mini-track that discusses relevant topics including,
but not limited to, the following:
•           Design Science Research as a research approach in
post-graduate studies;
•           Writing up a DSR study in a thesis or dissertation;
•           Mixed-method research and DSR as research approach;
•           Case Studies and best practices for post-graduate DSR
•           Evaluation of Design Science Research;
•           Science of Design and Design Theory;
•           Research philosophies and DSR;
•           The artefact within a DSR post-graduate study.
