NeuroIS Training Course 2019
A Pre‐Event of the NeuroIS Retreat 2019

THEME: Getting Started with NeuroIS: Choosing Tools, Methodologies, and Theories

June 4, 2019, 09.00 – 16.00
Schloss Wilhelminenberg, Vienna, Austria

Tutors: Fred D. Davis, Pierre-Majorique Léger, René Riedl
Because the NeuroIS field is still in a relatively early stage of development, it is important that interested researchers have opportunities to learn NeuroIS concepts, including knowledge on human neurobiology and neuroscience tools. Based on a reasonable degree of neuroscience knowledge, academics can develop insight that is necessary to evaluate the potential of neuroscience for specific research areas in the information systems (IS), design science, and computing disciplines, and to choose appropriate tools, methods, and theories. Solid knowledge is indispensable for researchers, reviewers, and journal editors.

The NeuroIS Training Course 2019, an offer of the Society for NeuroIS, is designed to give participants a basic foundation in major concepts, methods, and tools related to NeuroIS research. This course is specifically designed to collaborate in actively developing NeuroIS research strategies for early-stage research ideas of interest to the participants. Participants are asked to submit research ideas in advance, and to come prepared to briefly present and discuss their ideas in a workshop atmosphere. The tutors – Prof. Fred D. Davis (Texas Tech University, USA), Pierre-Majorique Léger (HEC Montréal, Canada), and René Riedl (University of Applied Sciences Upper Austria and University of Linz, Austria) – will provide feedback and suggestions based on the nature of the research ideas. Participation should provide value for IS, computer science, and management PhD students and faculty. There are no specific prerequisites for participation. English is the course language.

The course uses an interactive teaching approach, and it covers fundamental themes, including the following questions: Why do we need NeuroIS? How to conduct NeuroIS studies? What constitutes a good NeuroIS contribution? The course takes a beginner rather than an expert approach to the material presented, and it is mainly based on the following book: Riedl, R. & Léger, P.-M.: Fundamentals of NeuroIS: Information Systems and the Brain. Springer, 2016.

Research ideas must be submitted in English to info at NeuroIS.org<mailto:info at neurois.org> not later than May 10, 2019 (please send a WORD or PDF file). Research idea documents may not exceed 2 pages of text and should include author name(s) and contact information, as well as a description of: (1) problem statement, (2) research question(s) and/or hypotheses, (3) intended methods/tools, (4) expected contribution, and (5) key references. Participants must be prepared to present their research ideas at the course (the presentation must not exceed 10 minutes). Based on this presentation, the tutors will provide their comments and recommendations. Based on this interactive format, it is hoped that participants get a maximum of feedback on their research ideas. Please note that it is possible to participate without submitting a research idea document.

To register for the course, please follow the instructions provided at www.NeuroIS.org<http://www.neurois.org/pre-event-training-course/>. Attendees receive a certificate of participation. This course is a pre‐event of the NeuroIS Retreat 2019; the retreat starts with a reception and dinner in the evening of June 4.
