    IADIS International Workshop on Information Systems Research Trends,
    Approaches and Methodologies (ISRTAM 2011)
    Rome, Italy, 20 July 2011

    Call for Papers
    This IADIS research workshop aims at discussing the trends, approaches
    and methodologies currently being used in the field of Information
    Systems. Since this is a field that covers a wide variety of aspects
    from design of IS artefacts to the study of their use, exploitation
    and exploration in complex social environments, it is natural that
    research in this field is highly heterogeneous. The workshop aims at
    discussing this variety, criticise these different approaches, defend
    specific methodologies, identify complementarities and generally
    engage in a discussion that can take our field forward.
    Therefore, this workshop aims a eliciting both theoretical position
    papers and applied research contributions. The Workshop will also
    organise panel discussions aiming at generating discussion among
    delegates. A set of main topics have been identified below, however,
    any innovative contributions that don’t fit into these areas will
    also be considered provided they are in the general area of the
    Acceptance will be based primarily on originality, significance and
    quality of contribution, but theoretical and critical position papers
    are particularly welcome.
    The best contributions in this workshop will be included in an edited
    book as extended chapters.
    Topics for this workshop include, but are not limited to:

    specific research methods or approaches and have 8 pages at the
    maximum (5,000 words).
    • Full Reflection Papers – These review recent research literature
    pertaining to a particular research methodology, research problem or
    approach, and their findings suggest, and/or provide a criticism and
    suggestions - with rationale and justification - for different
    approaches or perspective on IS Research.
    Reflection papers might also analyze general trends or discuss
    important issues in topics related to the workshop. These have 8 pages
    at maximum (5.000 words).
    • Full Applied Research Papers – These include mainly accomplished
    research results and have 8 pages at the maximum (5,000 words).
    • Short Applied Research Papers – These are mostly composed of work in
