Large-scale communication systems in search of better theories and methods
June 4, 2013
IS projects frequently exceed the boundaries of a single organisation. Enterprise systems more and more often contain interorganisational elements, and digital collaboration takes place at a seemingly ever-increasing scale. However, these cross-organisational IT projects require a different approach with different concepts, strategies and methods. That is why large-scale information infrastructures often fail and sometimes even backfire. The assessment framework of Chain-computerisation (Grijpink, 2010) enables reducing these often costly mistakes. With the results of a chain analysis, a chain information strategy can be defined focused on the development and maintenance of chain information systems. An organisation strategy can be derived from the chain analysis results, as well.
With this workshop, we hope to further the debate on concepts, theories and methods for improving the chances of large-scale, interorganisational IT projects.
This call concerns a workshop organized before the 2013 European Conference on Information Systems (ECIS). We invite researchers, PhD students, and practitioners to join the discussion and present their work in this area. Manuscripts ideally focus on large-scale chain information systems covering theoretical, methodical, and/or practical aspects. Research papers are especially welcome.
Topics of interest
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Interorganisational information systems (IOS)
- Interorganisational relationships (IOR)
- Large-scale information infrastructures
- Identity (fraud) in IOS
- Privacy in IOS
- Chain analyses of social chains
- Coping with resistance to change in large-scale situations of co-operation and information exchange
- Governance of large-scale co-operation
- Prof. Dr. Mr. J.H.A.M. Grijpink, Emeritus, Utrecht University, the Netherlands
- Dr. M.G.A. Plomp, VU University Amsterdam, the Netherlands
- Mrs. T. Visser, MSc, PwC, the Netherlands

Submissions due: 14 March 2013
Acceptance notification: 16 April 2013
Final versions due for proceedings: 15 May 2013
Workshop: 4 June 2013
To submit your paper, send an e-mail with the manuscript as a Word attachment to firstname.lastname@example.org with subject line "ECIS workshop paper submission". Submitted papers should adhere to a document template, which can be found here: http://jcc.library.uu.nl/ .
Papers submitted to this workshop will be subject to peer review. Authors submitting to the workshop agree to review at least one other paper.
A special issue will be prepared for the Journal of Chain-computerisation (JCC). JCC publishes articles on large-scale information exchange for social issues. The journal focuses on the development and maintenance of information-infrastructures for chain wide co-operation of independent organisations and professionals in a specific social sector, e.g. criminal law enforcement, health care, identity management or education. For more information, see: http://jcc.library.uu.nl/index.php/JCC. Selected papers from the workshop will be invited to submit an extended version of their work to this special issue.
