Call For Papers


* Workshop Sozioinformatik 2013 *

to be held in conjunction with the GI annual meeting INFORMATIK 2013

September 16, 2013
Koblenz, Germany


Modern society and larger organizations cannot be efficiently organized without IT-systems. However, not all interactions between humans and IT-systems are successful - for multiple reasons. How do groups of humans in an organization or the whole society interact with IT-systems? Where does the human as a group or individual influence the system and where does it influence us?

In this workshop we invite you to reflect about organizations and society and their interactions with IT-systems, from a legal perspective or a political viewpoint, whether you are a computer scientist, a social scientist, an artist, from academia or industry. The workshop is open for all original contributions. All contributions will be peer-reviewed. A publication by Springer in their complex system series is currently under negotiation. As the field is still very dispersed, without a common conference or journal, we explicitly welcome review-like articles which summarize the state of the art on the interaction of society or organizations and IT-systems in your respective field.

*Topics of Interest*

In this workshop, we will address questions evolving around the interplay between social and technical systems. Among those, we particularly wish to highlight the following:

1. How do groups of humans in an organization or the whole society interact with IT-systems?

2.Where does the human as a group or individual influence the system and where does it influence us?

3.How can the increasingly available information about social interactions be used to improve IT-systems, to make them more socially aware?

4.Are there ethical limitations of informational technologies with respect to applications?

5.What kind of limitations are these? On what reasons and legitimations should these limitations be based?
