Track 4: Advances in Information Systems and Technologies (AIST'21)

Sofia, Bulgaria, September 2 - 5, 2021

Committee

AIST is a FedCSIS conference track aiming at integrating and creating synergy between disciplines of information technology, information systems, and social sciences. The track addresses the issues relevant to information technology and necessary for practical, everyday needs of business, other organizations and society at large. This track takes a socio-technical view on information systems and, at the same time, relates to ethical, social and political issues raised by information systems.

AIST provides a forum for academics and professionals to share the latest developments and advances in the knowledge and practice of these fields. It seeks new studies in many disciplines to foster a growing body of conceptual, theoretical, experimental, and applied research that could inform design, deployment and usage choices for information systems and technology within business and public organizations as well as households.

We call for papers covering a broad spectrum of topics which bring together sciences of information technology and information systems and social sciences, i.e. economics, management, business, finance, and education. The track bridges the diversity of approaches that contributors bring to the conference. The main topics covered are:

  • Advanced information systems and technologies for business;
  • Advanced information systems and technologies for governments;
  • Advanced information systems and technologies for education;
  • Advanced information systems and technologies for healthcare;
  • Advanced information systems and technologies for smart cities; and 
  • Advanced information systems and technologies for sustainable development.
