Economics and Value of IS


Information systems play a pervasive role in supporting managerial decisions, designing business processes, transforming economic exchange, and enhancing organizational capabilities. In addition, they enable the creation and delivery of new products, services, and business concepts. As information systems bring about new opportunities, they also present new challenges and research problems. 

This track invites theoretical and empirical submissions that leverage economic theories and methodologies and address important questions pertinent to the use of IS, the value that they create, and their impacts. We also encourage the application of innovative research designs that will enable our community to examine key business and social issues involving information and technological innovations. Senior executives, managers, and policy makers alike need guidance about the pathways of organizational innovation and success in the marketplace through IS, and the economic value generated by IS to firms and society. 

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to: 

·        Social networks and virtual communities

·        Open innovation and crowdsourcing

·        Peer and collaborative learning

·        Intellectual property

·        Interorganizational information and knowledge sharing

·        Information goods and digital market places

·        Cloud computing

·        Methodological challenges and opportunities
