Track 4: Information Systems and Technologies

Taking into account lack of certainty that it will be possible to organize the conference on-site (in Sofia) in September, we have decided that there is no other way but to organize the conference 100% telepresence based. This decision makes us very sad, but we believe that this is the best one we can make. This decision has consequences. First, the new conference fee has been reduced to 150 euro. Second, since we do not have to deal with local arrangements, we can use the extra time we have to establish the new submission deadline. It is now July 3, 2020 for the regular papers. We are looking forward to e-meet you.

IST 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.

IST 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 to the track's Technical Sessions 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.

Extended versions of high-marked papers presented at technical sessions of IST 2015-2019 have been published with Springer in volumes of Lecture Notes in Business Information Processing: LNBIP 243LNBIP 277LNBIP 311LNBIP 346, and LNBIP 380.

Extended versions of selected papers presented during IST 2020 will be published in Lecture Notes in Business Information Processing series (LNBIP, Springer).

Authors submit their paper to the sessions  below.
