Call for Minitrack Proposals: AMCIS 2016 Adoption and Diffusion of Information Technology Track (by SIGADIT).

2016 Americas Conference on Information Systems (AMCIS)

Track: Adoption and Diffusion of Information Technology (SIGADIT)

In recent years, we have seen creative and innovative business opportunities through the adoption and diffusion of mobile technology, social media, and cloud computing. In the era of digital economy, the ability to integrate these technologies to achieve operational excellence and competitive advantage has been one of major managerial challenges in modern organizations. Despite the great innovation potential that could be released by using these technologies, there are also some downsides coming along with it. Thus, researchers and practitioners alike also need to learn to deal with issues like IS misuse, obsessive and compulsive IS use, information overload, technostress, and/or technology addiction. This track seeks research inspiring theoretical, methodological, and practical insights in adoption and diffusion of innovative technologies at organizational, industry, societal, and global level. This track especially welcomes the use of different research methodologies to explore the behavioral, cultural or managerial issues associated with the adoption and diffusion of information technology.

To deeper our understanding of the important issues of adoption and diffusion of information technology, AIS Special Interest Group in Adoption and Diffusion of Information Technology (http://www.sigadit.net) is hosting a track at AMCIS 2016. More details about this track can be found at: http://amcis2016.aisnet.org/index.php/papers-and-posters/track-list#SIGADITanchor

We are calling for up to 8 minitracks for this track. Topics include among others:
