Call For Papers

The 20th Annual Workshop on Information Technologies and Systems will be held in St. Louis, Missouri, USA, on December 11-12, 2010, just prior to the International Conference on Information Systems (ICIS). The purpose of the workshop is to provide a forum for discussion and interaction among scholars with research interests in the cutting edge issues of information technology and systems. The theme of the conference will be "Creating Value Through Collaboration".
From a business perspective, information technology is consistently a major driving factor behind the biggest threats and the biggest opportunities an organization faces. As technology and software become more commoditized, the challenge is to create superior value though innovative use of technology. Collaboration holds the promise to improve efficiency and effectiveness, and IT is the key enabler of this revolution. The objective is to simultaneously create a sustainable competitive advantage and lower costs. Collaborative IT innovations currently center on such themes as social networking, knowledge management, and service-oriented technologies. Within these broad classes of technologies, we find both established and emerging fields of study. Since it is a workshop, WITS actively solicits papers describing novel research ideas that may be at a relatively early stage of development. Thus, the conference theme is inclusive and engages research in a wide range of topics, including the following:

Access Control and Security Techniques
Agent‐based Systems and Modeling
Agile System Development
Autonomous Computing
Collaboration Systems
Component‐based Systems
Conceptual Modeling
Databases and Information Integration
Data, Text and Web Mining
Data Warehousing and Business Intelligence
Distributed Computing
E‐Business and E‐Commerce
Emerging Technologies
Enterprise Resource Planning and Enterprise Application Integration
Enterprise Systems and Architecture
Human‐Computer Interface
Information Personalization Technology
Information Quality, Privacy, and Security
Intellectual Property Protection
Intelligent Systems and Technologies
Knowledge Management Technologies
Mobile Commerce and Wireless Technologies
Multi‐Media Computing
Object Technologies and Methodologies
Peer‐to‐peer Technologies
Process Management and Mining
Resource and Organizational Modeling
Search Engines
Semantic Web
Service‐Oriented Architecture and Web Services
Services Science
Social Computing and Web 2.0 Technologies
Supply Chains and IT
Systems Analysis and Design
Systems to Support Collaboration and Negotiation
IT Infrastructure for Evolving Business Models
Web‐based Information Systems
Workflow Management Systems
Authors of selected research papers will be invited to submit complete versions of their work for review and possible publication in three journals, based on fit with the journal scope as follows:

Information Technology and Management (ITM): Manuscripts concerning the man/machine interface, human factors, and organizational issues, as well as managerial and strategic issues that arise from the management of information technology.
ACM Transaction on Management Information Systems (ACM TMIS): Manuscripts focused on system and design science research.
The Journal of the Association for Information Systems (JAIS): Manuscripts where the applied method or methodology is inherently related to ongoing theory formulation or validation.
We estimate that there will be approximately 3 papers nominated for fast tracking with each journal. In addition, all accepted papers will be published on SSRN.
