    -- CALL FOR PAPERS - Submission Deadline (2nd call): 30 December 2011

    *************************************************************
    IADIS INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE INFORMATION SYSTEMS 2012
    March 10-12, 2012 – Berlin, Germany
    (http://www.is-conf.org/)
    *************************************************************


    * Keynote Speaker (confirmed):
    Prof. Dr. Egon Berghout, University of Groningen, The Netherlands

    * Conference background and goals
    A new paradigm is sweeping the society, organisations and the business
    environment. In fact, society and business world alike are moving
    from its tangible bases to
    intangible ones based on knowledge and information systems (IS) to
    support its management, use and sharing. In this emerging paradigm,
    terms like information,
    communication, knowledge, and learning have acquired a critical
    relevance to the understanding of the nature of contemporary
    business. This led authors such as
    Drucker (1993) to state that “we are entering the knowledge society in
    which the basic economic resource… is knowledge”.
    In fact, since the mid-1980s, there has been a sudden avalanche of a
    new kind of vocabulary. Corporations, which so far had been economic
    entities, are being described
    as ‘information-based organizations’, ‘learning organizations’,
    ‘knowledge-creating companies’ or knowledge intensive organisations.
    Instead of product-market
    strategies, the fashionable business discourse invokes core
    competencies, intangible assets, knowledge-based capabilities,
    intellectual capital, knowledge management
    etc. Consequently, in this 21st century of ours, terms such as
    intellectual capital, knowledge management, and knowledge mapping have
    increasingly become part of the
    corporate landscape.
    However, none of this apparent revolution would be possible without
    the underlying technological support provided by IS. The IADIS
    Information Systems Conference
    (IS 2012) aims to provide a forum for the discussion of IS taking a
    socio-technological perspective. It aims to address the issues
    related to design, development and
    use of IS in organisations from a socio-technological perspective, as
    well as to discuss IS professional practice, research and teaching.

    * Format of the Conference
    The conference will comprise invited talks and oral presentations. The
    proceedings of the conference will be published in the form of a book.
    The best paper authors
    will be invited to publish extended versions of their papers in
    specific journals, and in the IADIS International Journal on Computer
    Science and Information Systems.
    The conference proceedings will be submitted for indexing to INSPEC,
    EI Compendex, Thomson ISI, ISTP and other indexing services.

    * Types of submissions
    Full and Short Papers, Reflection Papers, Posters/Demonstrations,
    Tutorials, Panels and Doctoral Consortium. All submissions are subject
    to a blind refereeing process.

    * A set of key issues has been identified (see below). However, these
    do not aim at being prescriptive, or set in stone, and any innovative
    contributions that do not
    fit into these areas will also be considered. Areas and Topics of the
