CFP for ECIS 2019: Social and Ethical Implications of ICT Use

Social and Ethical Implications of ICT Use

Short Track Description

Recent years have witnessed a mounting integration of information and communication technology (ICT) in all areas of our lives, transforming the way we work, study, share, play, socialize, and live together as a society. Despite the many personal, educational, and work benefits offered by ICT, its use raises a variety of social and ethical concerns (like technology addiction, cyberbullying, eroded personal relationships, influenced elections, online fraud, Internet vigilantism, invasion of privacy, and infringement of intellectual property right - to mention just a few).

The objective of this track is to develop theoretical insight into and a practical understanding on topics and issues that address the potential social and ethical implications of ICT use, with focus on the various unfavourable aspects associated with ICT use. The track is open to all methodological approaches. We invite both full research and research in progress papers.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

* Societal impact of current or emerging technologies or technological trends
* Unethical uses of ICTs in elections, organisations, marketing etc.
* Cyberbullying, online harassment, online trolling, and Internet judges
* Work stress, overload, addiction, financial victimization, and illegitimate surveillance
* Reputation and credibility issues in ICT-based applications
* Responsible ICTs innovation
* ICT-related unemployment and deskilling
* Employee responsibility and autonomy of organizational use of ICTs
* The role of ICT in social inclusion/exclusion and educational (in)equality
* Strategies and interventions for addressing the societal consequences of ICT use
* Incorporating societal concerns in ICT planning and governance
* Implications of a digital society

Publishing Opportunities in Leading Journals

High quality and relevant papers from this track will be selected for fast-tracked development towards Internet Research (http://www.emeraldinsight.com/loi/intr). Selected papers will need to expand incontent and length in line with the requirements for standard research articles published in the journal.
Although the track co-chairs are committed to guiding the selected papers towards final publication, further reviews may be needed before final publication decision can be made.
Internet Research (IntR) is an international and refereed journal that is indexed and abstracted in major databases (e.g., SSCI, SCI, ABI/INFORM Global). The topics published in IntR are broad and interdisciplinary in nature. The impact factor (2017) and the 5-year impact factor (2016) of the journal is 3.838 and 4.580 respectively.

We invite you to submit a relevant paper to our track "Social and Ethical Implications of ICT Use" for ECIS2019 in Sweden!
Submission deadline for papers is November 27, 2018.
