Dear colleagues,

The deadline for submissions to the 1st International Workshop on 
*Socio-Technical Perspective in IS development* (STPIS'15) has been 
extended to 30 Mars 2015

The main */purpose /*of the workshop is to arrange */discussions /*on 
using a socio-technical perspective in IS development, the long term 
goal being to make this workshop a/*meeting place for the community of 
IS researchers and practitioners*/ interested in the socio-technical 

The discussions will start with a keynote by Prof. Ian Sommerville on:
"/*Designing software for a million users: it’s not about the technology*/"

The workshop is attached to CAiSE'15 conference

Short description is presented below
Despite that a socio-technical perspective has been around for over a 
half century, it is often forgotten in the Information Systems (IS) 
discourse today. Consequently, many “new approaches” appear to reflect 
on IS systems problems, such as modern IT systems poorly adjusted to the 
external or/and internal environment (e.g. market, organizational 
culture) of organizations in which they are (to be) deployed. We 
strongly believe that it is high time the social-technical perspective 
took its proper place in IS research, practice and teaching.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

     1. Case studies using socio-technical approach
     2. Information system design using socio-technical approach
     3. Socio-technical comparative studies of technology/IS adoption
     4. Socio-technical analysis, design, development and integration of
     – health care systems
     – crisis management systems
     – information security management systems
     – learning systems
     – privacy enhanced technology
     5. Societal Security from a socio-technical perspective
     6. Ethnographic and Anthropological aspects of IS design and adoption
     7. IT business alignment from a socio-technical perspective
     8. Using Viable System Model (VSM) for analysis and design of 
socio-technical systems

We invite submissions of short and long papers and multi-media materials 
in the following categories:

     Position papers
     Idea papers
     Experience reports
     Research papers
     Multi-media. Besides papers, we accept submissions in form of 
multi-media materials, for example, recorded video or animated 
presentation, describing industrial experience of using socio-technical 
perspective for IS analysis or development. In case of acceptance, an 
extended abstract is published in the workshop proceedings, while the 
multi-media material itself or a link to it is placed on the workshop site.
