DIGIT 2017 Program now available.

The Special Interest Group on the Adoption and Diffusion of Information Technology hosts its 27th pre-ICIS workshop for persons interested in information technology adoption and diffusion (DIGIT). DIGIT will be held in the morning of Sunday, December 10, 2017 in Seoul, South Korea. The theme this year is The Bright and the Dark Side of IT Use".

Recent years have witnessed an increasing integration of information technology (IT) in our personal and professional lives, transforming the way we work, study, play, and socialize. With an unrelenting pace of innovation, organizations and consumers now face many new dilemmas, new questions, and new uncertainties. Individuals might on the one side be challenged to adapt to the changes induced by the infiltration of IT. They might feel a great uncertainty about these technologies and might have the impression that they are able to deal with this development in both the private and the business world. On the other hand, individuals might use IT to take advantage of the benefits provided to the individual or organization. Therefore, we believe that it is equally important to examine both the “Bright” and the “Dark” effects of IT use. Please see our DIGIT 2017 Call for Papers for further details.

Submissions Due: Friday 8th September 2017 (Final deadline; there will be no deadline extension).

Submissions. All submissions must use the Pre-ICIS DIGIT template.

Faculty members and doctoral students are encouraged to attend and participate in the roundtable discussions and poster sessions.

In order to foster the workshop atmosphere that has developed in previous meetings, registration will again be limited to about 50 people. Refreshments will be provided to attendees. You can register for DIGIT during the regular ICIS registration process. As only a limited number of seats remain available, please register at your earliest convenience.
