CFP: 2020 Workshop on Information Technology & Systems (WITS)

  • 1.  CFP: 2020 Workshop on Information Technology & Systems (WITS)

    Posted 7 days ago

    The 30th Annual Workshop on Information Technologies and Systems (WITS'20), originally scheduled in Hyderabad, India, will be held virtually this year due to the global outbreak of COVID-19. WITS will be held online just after the International Conference on Information Systems (ICIS). The purpose of the workshop is to provide a forum for discussion and interaction among scholars with research interests in the cutting-edge issues of information technologies and systems. The theme of WITS'19 is "Multi-method Design of Intelligent Systems for Social Good."

    Designing Information Systems for the future need multi-method approaches that combine the power of analytics, machine learning, algorithms, economic modeling, design science, systems, human-computer interaction, and other branches of IS. Such systems with augmented intelligence will make analysis, decision-making, and execution much more efficient, automated, and economical. While applications of augmented intelligence are slowly emerging in the domains of fraud detection, counter-terrorism, and self-driving cars, IS researchers can work together to bring its benefits to address grand social challenges, particularly in the areas of healthcare, security, privacy, equitable community development, and sustainable growth. This year's conference theme should inspire IS researchers to explore multi-disciplinary approaches for designing technologies and systems that will promote social good.

    Submission Deadline: 25th September, 2020.
