Conference Theme – Design Science Research for a Resilient World

The world of humans has undergone rapid developments of technological innovation during the recent few decades. Consensus exists around the very fact that our modern ways of living and interacting with humans, organizations, and society, is heavily influenced by the implications of digital technologies. At the same time, the challenges of coping with the increasing effect of digital technologies creates incentive for academics in the Information Systems (IS) field to develop knowledge and skills that make humans, organizations, and society resilient towards emerging relationships with future digital technologies. The theme of the 19th International Conference on Design Science Research in Information Systems and Technology (DESRIST 2024) therefore challenges the Design Science Research (DSR) community to think about how to do design science research for a resilient future.


DESRIST 2023 will be located at University West in Trollhättan, Sweden. The venue is located on the university’s campus. The facility forms part of the city Trollhättan that makes fundamentally new approaches to research and innovation possible that span across disciplinary fields and focuses on a practice-oriented research approach that nurtures the value of technology, innovation, humanities, work-integrated learning, and sustainability.

Submission Types

We look forward to receiving your full papers, RIP papers, prototype submissions, and panel/workshop proposals. Proposals for half-day workshops are encouraged. We also invite doctoral student researchers who are interested to attend the doctoral consortium to submit a summary of their research. Our doctoral consortium brings together early-stage and experienced design science researchers and provides a platform for constructive exchange. You will appreciate the transformational mentorship experience as well as the exciting networking opportunities.

Editorial Process

All paper submissions will go through a double-blind review process conducted by an international review panel. Your paper will be assessed anonymously by at least two reviewers and managed by the track chairs and program committee. Your prototype submissions will be handled by the prototype chairs. Your panel and workshop proposals will be reviewed by the respective chairs and the program committee.

Conference Proceedings

The accepted full research papers will be included in a volume of Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) as DESRIST 2024 Proceedings. All other types of submissions will be published in some form on the DESRIST 2024 Website.

Conference Tracks

The 19th Annual DESRIST conference will bring together researchers and practitioners engaged in all aspects of design science research (DSR).

We invite submissions on specific solutions such as products and prototypes. We invite research papers, demos, and panel proposals that describe work in different areas of design science research, including, but not limited to the following:

* Domain-specific applications of DSR (e.g., Marketing, Manufacturing, Supply Chain, Finance, Healthcare, Education, Tourism)

* Technology-specific applications of DSR (e.g., AI, Fintech, Analytics, Blockchain, Platforms, IOT, algorithms, cyber-security)

* DSR impacts (e.g., evaluation, UN sustainability goals, ethics, society, privacy, well-being)

* Theoretical and Methodological Contributions to DSR

* Methods and Tools (e.g., transparent AI, architecture, cloud-native databases, data meshes, user experiences, co-design)

* Innovation and entrepreneurship (e.g., ecosystems, new ventures, patents)

Theme track: DSR for a Resilient World

Co-Chairs: Abayomi Baiyere, Daniel Beverungen, Netta Iivari

The notion of being ‘resilient’ is defined differently depending on the research context. For instance, in the context of building an information system, Pulley & Wakefield (2001) define resilience as: “… resilience provides the ability to recover quickly from change, hardship or misfortune. It is associated with elasticity, buoyancy, and adaptation. Resilient people demonstrate flexibility, durability, and attitude of optimism, and openness to learning. A lack of resilience is signaled by burnout, fatigue, malaise, depression, defensiveness, and cynicism”. As such, for this conference, we position the notion of a resilient future as a future where humans might have to develop flexible abilities for adapting, recovering, and sensing change in emerging relationships with technological innovation.

One thought that arises as we move into the future is: how can the development of knowledge and innovative digital technology help us to develop abilities and skills for a resilient future? An attempt to address the question is by turning to an ideal approach and paradigm within the field of Information Systems (IS) that, traditionally speaking, have a rigorous and relevant view on how to tackle wicked problems on all levels of analysis. This ideal approach is Design Science Research (DSR), which aims to bridge the development of technologies that are useful for humans, organizations, and society, with the development of research knowledge that contributes to a scientific discourse of methodological and conceptual/theoretical foundations for doing IS-research. The more sufficiently IS researchers can contribute with viable solutions and scientific knowledge through a DSR approach that persistently pushes the boundaries of innovation and research, the better will we be able to implement means possible to achieve goals that are useful and sustainable for a resilient future.

General Track

Co-Chairs: Monica Chiarini Tremblay, Matthew Mullarkey, Stefan Morana

The general track will focus on all relevant topics including DSR for organizational and societal problems, especially solutions for complex and wicked problems. We welcome empirical, conceptual, and design contributions.

DSR Methods and Education

Co-Chairs: Alexander Mädche, Samuli Pekkola, Andreas Janson

The DSR Methods and Education track will focus on rigorous and relevant methods to produce DSR and best practices in teaching and learning. Submissions on what and how to teach DSR and methodological innovations such as philosophy, processes, tools, and techniques to produce impactful DSR are encouraged. Furthermore, we welcome papers that seek to apply or extend DSR methods beyond the scope of the Information Systems discipline, e.g., in Entrepreneurship or other fields. We seek conceptual and empirical studies that advance understanding and improve DSR methods and education, including studies that apply DSR in an educational context.

DSR in Practice

Co-Chairs: Jan vom Brocke, Ali Sunyaev, Jan Marco Leimeister

The DSR in practice track focuses on applications of DSR in organizations and society. We are interested in DSR research that demonstrates high practical relevance and impact. The tie to practice can be reflected in the process as well as the outcomes and application of DSR. We invite case studies that highlight the practical use of DSR-generated applications, field studies by DSR researchers, how to evolve DSR into practice, and the role of academic and industry structures in influencing practice (e.g., living labs, accelerators, etc.).

Emerging Topics in DSR

Co-Chairs: Brian Donnellan, Juho Lindman, Sarah Hönigsberg

The emerging topics track is open to new ideas for expanding DSR. For example, new domains for DSR inquiry (e.g., transdisciplinary perspectives, tourism, education), new technologies (e.g., AI, data mesh), and new ways of thinking about the role of DSR and its impact on organizations and society.
