Because information systems is concerned with technologies, people, information and organizations, virtually everything it addresses is in one way or another a product of design. This track addresses three streams in which design has found its way into information systems research and practice. One way, often referred to as design thinking, concerns what information system and other management scholars can learn from the disciplines of design as practiced broadly. It is interested in design as attitudes, competencies and methods, some of which are applicable to organizational issues, including technological and information-related ones. A second stream, referred to as design science, is a paradigm for conducting research in information systems through building, applying and evaluating particular technology artifacts. The third, Human Computer Interaction (HCI) has the longest tradition of exploring the design considerations that must be addressed at the human-machine boundary. Contributions from all three traditions are encouraged.
