Welcome to the website of the 28th International Conference on Information Systems Development (ISD2019). The conference will be hosted by the Higher Institute for Electronics and Digital Training.
The theme of ISD2019 is Information Systems Beyond 2020. The conference focuses on mutual influences between information systems and organizational structures, processes and people and promotes research of methodological issues and ways in which the IS designers and developers are transforming organizations and society through information systems.
A three-day conference focusing on the interplay of approaches in information systems development with organisational aspects and trends in society. Scientists and practitioners are welcome to participate and share their knowledge and expertise.
Phenomenal increase in computational power and IT development led to unprecedent increases in productivity and contributed to welfare increase in the capitalist economies over the last 40 decades. Hyper-connectivity has changed our day-to-day work and leisure practices; created new economic activities; and has transformed production, distribution and consumption in many sectors. However, the positive impact of hyper-connectivity is stained with online disinformation phenomenon, cyber-security risks, threats to privacy and personal liberties, data concentration in hands of a few number of technological companies.
Recent decades in the developed economies have been marked by slowed growth, speculative bubble bursts, unemployment, stagnant wages, vanishing of the middle class and increased inequality, ageing population and rising insecurity. Advanced developments in automation have fueled fears of substantial job losses. Governments’ failure to effectively address systemic problems has created political instability and uncertainty in many countries of the Northern hemisphere. At the global level, one third of the people in various developing countries are experiencing a great deal of poverty; large income discrepancies between rich and poor have widened; tensions have been aggravated at the international political stage; urbanization in developed countries poses serious challenges in terms of sustainability; and global climate change calls for urgent strategic solutions. In this European and international context, the European commission has been preparing a new framework for European research and innovation support funding. During this exercise, voices have been raised for a paradigm shift towards technological innovation seeking solutions to the systemic socio-economic, political and environmental problems. The 28th conference on Information Systems Development provides momentum for the ISD community to self-reflect on where the IS research stands now and where it could go in the next decade to play a pivotal role in tackling these global challenges. We invite submissions in all areas of IS research related to the conference tracks, contributing to self-reflective analysis of the past and setting the agenda for the ISD research beyond 2020.
The ISD2019 conference, among other topics, focuses on:
We therefore kindly invite you to share your knowledge and experience by submitting a paper to ISD2019 and make your contribution to this upcoming event that will be hosted by Higher Institute for Electronics and Digital Training.
The International Conference on Information Systems Development is an academic conference hosted annually in a different location worldwide, where scientists and practitioners are welcomed to participate and share their knowledge and expertise in the field of information systems development. During its history, the conference has focused on different aspects, ranging from methodological, infrastructural or educational challenges in the ISD field, to bridging the gaps between industry, academia and society. However, the mission of the conference has remained the same throughout its time: to research, share and discuss developments and trends in Information Systems and Information Systems Development.
Demanding high quality standards, the organizers and reviewers put the quality of submitted papers over quantity, which has kept the conference size at an intimate level with an average of 80 papers, and where each researcher receives a significant audience.
