Information Technology Business and Society logo
Belgrade, Serbia, 8–11 September, 2024

This Topical Area aims at integrating and creating synergy between disciplines of information technology, information systems, and social sciences. It addresses the issues relevant to information technology and necessary for practical, everyday needs of business, other organizations and society at large. This Topical Area takes a socio-technical view on information systems and, at the same time, relates to ethical, social and political issues raised by information systems.

This Topical Area provides a forum for academics and professionals to share the latest developments and advances in the knowledge and practice of these fields. It seeks new studies in many disciplines to foster a growing body of conceptual, theoretical, experimental, and applied research that could inform design, deployment and usage choices for information systems and technology within business and public organizations as well as households.

We invite papers covering the most recent innovations, current trends, professional experiences and new challenges in the several perspectives of information systems and technologies, i.e. design, implementation, stabilization, continuous improvement, and transformation. It seeks new works from researchers and practitioners in business intelligence, big data, data mining, machine learning, cloud computing, mobile applications, social networks, internet of thing, sustainable technologies and systems, blockchain, etc.
