University of Oulu welcomes you to the Sixth Scandinavian Conference on Information Systems (SCIS 2015) to be held in Oulu, Finland. The conference will be held in conjunction with the 38th Information Systems Research Seminar in Scandinavia (IRIS 2015). While many of the participants are from the Nordic countries, researchers from all parts of the world are warmly welcome to the conference.
Conference theme: System design for, with and by users

Information systems are in various forms embedded in everyday human practices. They have become intertwined and embedded in almost all parts of our everyday life, including leisure, thereby establishing new forms of participation and design. Hence, “users” cannot be considered as passive consumers anymore, but at least as content producers if not even as co-designers and innovators. This calls for reconsidering the traditional understandings of the roles of users and designers as well as for different development approaches that place emphasis on users’ empowerment, motivation and inclusion in designing, shaping, innovating and co-creating information systems in their everyday life. The SCIS conference theme challenges IS researchers to consider these new forms of participation, persuasion and design—for, with and by users—both in the sense of understanding the phenomenon better and in devising better support for it. We also call for reflective accounts on this decades old theme that has from the very beginning characterized Scandinavian IS design. Papers with other IS themes are also welcome.

Paper submission

SCIS 2015 is open for full research papers within the conference theme as well as other areas of IS research. We welcome empirical as well as theoretical and methodological papers. Accepted papers will be published in the Springer series of Lecture Notes in Business Information Processing (LNBIP).

Papers are not to exceed 6000 words/16 pages. Papers must be formatted according to the Springer LNBIP instructions ( ) and submitted through EasyChair ( ).
