Track Description

Design is central to information systems as the ultimate impact of IT based systems on individuals and organizations is highly influenced by how well these systems are designed. Design science research is a relatively novel concept that aims to frame the activities involved, from problem identification to testing, for successful system deployment. This new track aims to formally introduce design science research to the AMCIS community by bringing together researchers and practitioners engaged in all aspects of design science research, with a special emphasis on design research with relevant contributions to practice.

Mini-Track Description

The adoption of DSR as a research approach whenever artefacts are developed within IS has seen substantial growth in recent years. This trend was also found in post-graduate studies where students are involved in the development of an artefact and then adopt DSR in their studies.

Several authors such as Vijay Vaishnavi, Bill Keuchler, Al Hevner and Shirley Gregor published on the topic of Design Science research. However, using DSR in postgraduate studies is a relatively new way of conducting research and the presentation of a DSR study within dissertations and theses poses unique challenges and opportunities.

This track explores the techniques, opportunities, challenges and best practices adopted for both students and supervisors when adopting and using DSR within post-graduate studies.

Mini-Track Description

The speed of digitization in organizations and society as a whole has been increasing Technical innovations seem to appear on a daily basis.  This pace of changes introduces disruption in traditional ways of thinking and behaving.  This, in turn, opens up broad new vistas of challenges and opportunities as we seek to understand the implications and possibilities introduced by technological change.  Through the Design Science Research paradigm, investigators seek to build knowledge and new insights by building artifacts, a paradigm that is well-suited to addressing issues introduced by rapid technical advances. This mini-track aims to encourage research that provides insights into both theoretical and applied issues introduced by technology and technology induced change.
