We would like to invite you to submit to the research track T3 "Information Systems Methodologies and Education" at the 28th International Conference on Information Systems Development (ISD) 2019 in Toulon, France, August 28-30, 2019. Please forward this CFP to interested colleagues and students.

The ISD Proceedings will be published in the AIS Electronic Library.

Track description

T3: Information Systems Methodologies and Education

This track focuses on two broad areas: 1) information systems development (ISD) methodologies, and 2) information systems development (ISD) education. The goal is to create a forum of discussion and dissemination of novel, relevant and rigorous research as well as industrial, professional and practical experiences that address: 1) challenges and opportunities faced by various stakeholders in the development of information systems, and 2) challenges and opportunities faced by various stakeholders in the education of information systems professionals. A special interest is in research addressing these challenges and opportunities by taking into account the needs and characteristics of sustainable development, sharing economy, big data and information society, environmental and social responsibility, and by considering the information systems as socio-technical systems.

The track invites submissions on:
1) Theoretical foundations and examples of good practice related to the design, implementation, evaluation, adoption, and use of information systems in formal and informal educational contexts in ISD,
2) Theoretical foundations and examples of good practice related to methodologies and modelling of ISD from design to implementation, evaluation and impact assessment,
3) Theoretical and empirical contributions to understanding and shaping methodological and educational aspects in ISD,
4) Methodology contributions to ISD and ISD education.
