We are offering a new mini-track at AMCIS to examine the issue of computer mediated fraud.  We invite you to submit your emerging or completed research to this mini-track.

The pervasive use of digital media in both personal and organizational settings has resulted in a variety of new methods in which transactions occur in real-time across borders. While these technologies have been developed to enable widespread efficient communications, they also present distinct challenges in identifying and mitigating various forms of consumer fraud. IS-enabled capabilities provide more efficient and effective cooperation between non-collocated individuals and facilitate internet-based commerce. However, the same enabling characteristics of information systems also generate new settings in which consumer fraud can occur. Thus, an ongoing challenge in the development of communications media and transaction systems is the need to address the balance between security and the deterrence of illicit behaviors with the practical requirements of communications in modern social and commerce systems.

This mini-track seeks to explore how communication and transaction systems promote or deter malevolent consumer exchanges. We encourage papers that study the fraudulent use of information systems in personal contexts, and papers that describe or predict how characteristics of information systems can encourage, or deter, various illicit or malevolent behaviors. This mini-track is open to both theoretical and empirical studies, and is open to all research methods (e.g., field studies, case studies, surveys, secondary analysis, experimentation). Potential topics may include (but are not limited to):

* Development of frameworks for evaluating how technology affects e-commerce misrepresentation and fraud behaviors.
* Research on novel or innovative uses of information systems to deter or detect fraud and other related cybercrimes.
* Analysis of phishing, spoofing, and other fraudulent computer-mediated communications.
* Studies of the implementation, adoption, and outcomes of technological systems designed to deter or detect non-delivery, overpayment fraud, shill-bidding, second-chance schemes, or other forms of online auction fraud.

Important Date: March 2, 2016:   AMCIS manuscript submissions closes for authors at 10:00am PST
