Information technology (IT) implementation is a core research stream in the information systems (IS) discipline. Successful implementation of IT is critical for individual, business process, and organizational performance. The focus of this track is the implementation, adoption, and use of IT among individuals, groups, and organizations. Given the endemic nature of IT within modern society, it is clearly essential to understand the various factors causing some IT to be successfully adopted and widely accepted, and others to meet only resistance and rejection. The study of the adoption and diffusion of IT may be considered to be one of the more mature research areas within the IS discipline. However, constantly emerging technologies, contexts of use, and stakeholder groups ensure that the area remains rich in potential for original and fruitful investigation. Indeed, the emergence of such new technologies, contexts, and users raises the issue of whether previous research findings remain applicable to these new circumstances.

The aim of the track therefore is to provide a common platform for the presentation and discussion of original research into issues surrounding IT adoption (and non-adoption) from various stakeholder group perspectives, and at differing levels, including societal, organizational, and individual. The track calls for theoretical, conceptual, and empirical studies that provide new insights into IT implementation, adoption, and use, as well as identifying an agenda for future research in the area.

The track welcomes papers grounded in a broad range of theories (e.g., TAM, TTF, TAUT, UTAUT, GTAM, IS continuance, IS success model), perspectives, and methodologies. We particularly encourage papers that employ multiple levels of analysis and use multiple methodologies. We welcome papers with both qualitative and quantitative methodologies as well as papers based on other methods such as simulation, agent-based modeling and other types of modeling (e.g., game theoretic modeling). We encourage paradigm-shifting, innovative research conducted in socially, culturally, and economically diverse settings, regions and across geographic and national boundaries.

Topics of interest may include (but are certainly not limited to) the following:

  • Individual, group, or organizational IT adoption decisions
  • Adoption or diffusion of IT supporting organizational and inter-organizational initiatives
  • Adoption of IT in a residential/ household context
  • Feature-level IT adoption and use
  • Global or cross-cultural studies of IT implementation, adoption, and post-adoption
  • Adoption and use of social technologies and smart devices
  • Adoption or diffusion of IT in specific sectors (such as e-government)
  • Adoption and usage of emerging technologies, such as RFID and cloud computing
  • Communication types and channels on the diffusion of IT
  • Factors influencing IT adoption and use at micro and macro levels
  • Factors that drive the adoption and use of social technologies by organizations in different sectors of the global economy as well as different cultural contexts
  • IT implementation success factors
  • Social network characteristics (e.g., density, centrality) on the adoption and diffusion of ITs
  • Socio-economic impacts of consumer adoption of IT
  • Socio-economic/geographical/cultural factors relevant to IT adoption
  • Strategies to promote IT adoption and diffusion
  • The diffusion of ITs within populations (e.g., social networks, communities of practice, organizations)
  • The impact of IT use on the daily/social/professional life of consumers/citizens
  • The impact of consumers’ home use of IT on business models in various industries
  • The role of personality characteristics (e.g., Big 5) in adoption of ITs
  • The role of national/ organizational culture on the adoption and diffusion of ITs
  • Theories, concepts, and tools of IT adoption and diffusion
  • Theoretical essays or critical reviews of adoption and diffusion of ITs
  • Usage and post-adoption behaviors, such as infusion, exploitation, and exploration
