Recently, scholars such as Mutch, Leonardi, Kautz and Jensen, and Bratteteig and Verne have questioned the validity and, in some cases, also the opportunity of this perspective. This means that any critical viewpoint is also welcome. The track welcomes papers discussing the following but not exhaustive list of possible themes:. Metallo U. Parthenope , L. Agder, NO. Internet has affected not only the business world but also the society at large.
Distance, time, and culture limits are no more an obstacle to interaction and collaboration among individuals and organizations, but seem to belong to the distant past. For instance, it have favorite the proliferation of virtual communities, fostering the social and exchange processes among individuals. Furthermore, the spread of Internet has also encouraged the development of business and market strategies, changing the nature of the organizations and their relationships with suppliers and customers.
Social platforms, market places and online work places are becoming the trading zone of commercial lives and social lives alike and as such are affecting the design of global communities and organizations. Many of these platforms have been created with the aim of riding the technological evolution of the Internet and building their competitive advantage or organizational transformations on the intensive, if not exclusive, use of network technologies. Some experiences have ended up as big failures e.
The Track aims at discussing papers that seek to analyze the evolution of these platforms in their role as the enablers and constrainers of global collaborations. This track encourages theoretical and empirical contributions that cover the following topics, but are not limited to:.
What Is Knowledge Management, and Why Is It Important? · Spoke
Castelnovo U. Di Guardo U.
During the past decades, ICT-enabled innovation in public services has been almost exclusively considered through the lens of e-government, i. In the recent years, also due to the difficulties e-government encountered in delivering on its promise, new approaches have emerged that are centered on concepts like: government 2.
All these approaches point to the need of directly engaging citizens in the implementation of new or significantly improved ways of providing public goods and services. This aims at making services not only user-centric or user-friendly but rather at improving the quality of decision-making, promoting greater trust in public institutions and enhancing public value through co-production and the exploitation of collaborative innovation networks established across the boundaries of the traditional public service delivery mechanisms.
Moreover, in terms of enabling technologies, the co-production approach can now rely on the widespread availability and use of ICT-based tools e. This offers new possibilities for ICT-enabled collaborative service creation and provision where the distinctions between professionals, politicians, practitioners, civil servants, experts, consumers and citizens are blurring and where services are citizens-centric not because they are designed FOR citizens, but WITH citizens and BY citizens.
The objective of the track is to discuss co-production in public services from different theoretical and methodological points of view e. Information Systems, Public Management, Service Science, Network Science and to present case studies, successful examples and failures in order to collect lessons learned that may be useful for researchers and practitioners with an interest in this field.
Bonazzi U. Lausanne, CH , R. Candiotto U. Piemonte Orientale , C. Rossignoli U. Verona ,. In the last decade, organizations have found themselves facing a dilemma.
On the one hand, they need to constantly reduce the enterprise budget for information technology IT. On the other hand, IT has to contribute to the strategy and competitiveness of organizations. Moreover, new outsourcing options — such as crowdsourcing and IT consumerization — increase the number of options and challenges as well as the pace of change.
This shift towards a network approach for enterprise resource management calls for new competences, methodologies and instruments to support CIOs in managing the IT infrastructure from projects to operations, as well as to help them address the constantly emerging organizational and inter-organizational changes. Topics relevant to this track include but are not restricted to :.
Keywords : Chief information officer; outsourcing; cloud computing; business networks, IT management, IT value, virtual organizations, business — IT alignment. Iannacci U. Mascia U.

Cattolica Roma. The implementation of healthcare information systems and technologies IT is nowadays at the heart of the successful provision of healthcare services. Quality, appropriateness, and efficiency are all relevant performance dimensions on which IT-based innovation have significant impact.
Whereas IT-based innovation is in principle desirable, its adoption and implementation poses a number of challenges and complexities for organizations in this field. First, multiple organizational dimensions of providers are subject to significantly change since the activities of a wide range of professionals and the way they provide services to patients are affected by the implementation of new information systems and technologies.
However, professionals are often reluctant to change, and IT effectiveness may be hindered by the high degree of autonomy they held in organizations. The presence of various subcultures and the long-lasting conflict between administrators and professionals may also hamper IT effectiveness. The economic impact and sustainability of IT-based innovation is another major issue in this field, where resource constraint has progressively urged organizations and systems to accurately assess the cost-effectiveness of IT-based interventions.
Because of the performance of healthcare organizations is multidimensional in nature, additional concerns regard the complete and accurate assessment of IT benefits in healthcare settings. In the last few years, health technology assessment functions, roles and tools have proliferated providing robust support in decision-making regarding IT adoption and implementation.
The objective of the track is to seek original research contributions on IT-based innovation within healthcare systems and organizations. The track welcomes papers work in progress as well as research ready to be published that address issues related, without being limited, to the following areas:. Keywords : healthcare organizations, health systems, organizational change, health technology assessment, e-health, telemedicine, IT-costs and IT-benefits, patients, big data analysis.

Napoli , A. Braccini U. Cloud Computing is a multi-purpose paradigm that offers new opportunities for efficient management of IT infrastructures leveraging on virtualization of resources and services. Cloud Computing offers new opportunities for business models leveraging on the concepts of on-demand, self-service, and pay-by-use of IT infrastructures.

Therefore, Cloud Computing represents both a technology for using computing infrastructures in a more efficient way, and a business model for selling computing resources and services. The apparent availability of unlimited virtual resources makes possible a cheap deployment of large-scale applications and services for supporting information systems IS. On this side Cloud Computing bears the promise of allowing a more flexible and scalable management of the infrastructure. At the same time it poses new and different treats for security that can be compromised by cyber attacks with detrimental effects on quality of service, reputation, and costs.
This track welcomes both theoretical and empirical papers discussing managerial implications, opportunities, and treats of Information Sytems managed under a Cloud Computing perspective. Such topics include, but are not limited to the following:.
