Besides discussion of research ideas and papers in the area of DOTI, this years' Workshop on the Digitization of the Individual will be accompanied by an expert panel on The Dark Side of the Digitization of the Individual.
The expert panel will include three expert researchers who will share and discuss their perspectives on the topic: Monideepa Tarafdar (Lancaster University), John D’Arcy (University of Delaware) and Hamed Qahri-Saremi (DePaul University, Chicago).
More information on the panelists can be found below:
Monideepa Tarafdar is professor of information systems and Lever Hulme Research Fellow at Lancaster University (Management School), U.K. Pertinent to this workshop, her research extensively covers topics relating to the dark side of IS use. She serves as senior editor at Information Systems Journal, associate editor at Information Systems Research, editorial board review member /ad-hoc senior editor at Journal of the Association for Information Systems, and editorial board review member Journal of Strategic Information Systems.
John D’Arcy is an Associate Professor in the Department of Accounting & Management Information Systems, Lerner College of Business & Economics, at the University of Delaware. He is also the Robert and Kathy Deutsch Faculty Fellow. Dr. D’Arcy received a Bachelor of Science in Finance and Business Logistics from The Pennsylvania State University, a Master’s of Business Administration (MBA) from LaSalle University, and a PhD in Management Information Systems from Temple University. Prior to working in academia, he held positions as a cost accountant and financial analyst at Ford Motor Company.
Dr. D’Arcy’s research focuses on the behavioral aspects of information security, with emphasis on strategies for mitigating insider threats. In recent studies, he has examined the effectiveness of procedural and technical security controls in deterring employee computer abuse. Within this research program, he has also investigated various individual and organizational factors that contribute to employees’ security-related behavior. A separate line of his research focuses on IT security investment strategies and how they influence the likelihood of data breaches. Dr. D’Arcy’s research appears in journals such as MIS Quarterly, Information Systems Research, Journal of Management Information Systems, and European Journal of Information Systems. He serves as an Associate Editor at MIS Quarterly.

Hamed Qahri-Saremi is an Assistant Professor of Information Systems at the College of Computing and Digital Media, DePaul University in Chicago, IL. He holds a PhD in business administration with a concentration on information systems from the DeGroote School of Business, McMaster University. His research is at the intersection of social and technological systems and particularly addresses the behavioral implications of using information systems and computer-mediated communications. His research papers have appeared in various journals and conferences in Information Systems, such as Journal of Management Information Systems, Journal of Strategic Information Systems, Information & Management, New Media & Society, Computers & Education, Expert Systems with Applications, Journal of Organizational Computing and Electronic Commerce, and European Financial Review. He has served in various capacities as an editor, a reviewer, a mini-track chair, and a session chair for journals and conferences in information systems field.

The 3rd workshop on the Digitization of the Individual will be held in San Francisco, USA, in conjunction with ICIS 2018 and is scheduled for December 12 2018, 1:00 PM - 5:30 PM.
We are looking forward to welcoming you in San Francisco. More details on the registration procedure will follow soon.
The 3rd workshop on the Digitization of the Individual will be held in San Francisco, USA, in conjunction with ICIS 2018 and is scheduled for December 12 2018, 1:00 PM - 5:30 PM. To promote further impactful research on individuals, strong emphasis during the workshop will be given to paper development discussions, among others, facilitated by discussants providing direct feedback. Workshop participants will be charged a registration fee that will include snacks and coffee breaks (details will be announced as the conference program is finalized).
This year's workshop includes an expert panel on "the dark side" of the Digitization of the Individual. More information on this will follow soon.
As our lives become immersed by powerful digital devices and services, questions of implications for individuals’ lives as well as their social interactions and structures arise. IS research has traditionally focused rather on institutional contexts (Baskerville 2011). However, the digitization of individuals' private contexts offers manifold important research questions to be solved (Hess et al. 2014). In everyone’s life outside the organizational context these pertain individual behavior and decision making and the positive and negative consequences thereof, but also communication and interactions with other individuals as well as firms. The emerging fully digitized and connected environment implies changes to the development, exploitation and management of personal IS. While particular scenarios (e.g. smart home, connected cars, social networks) have received partial attention in different fields, this workshop seeks to gather these fragmented views and bring together researchers interested in the impact of digitization on individuals.
Research in this area is beneficial in two ways. First, understanding the implications, opportunities and threats of the digitization of private lives enables suppliers of digital technologies to form closer and stronger connections with their customers and to build services and devices that better match their expectations and improve their everyday lives. Second, this research can help to develop policies and practices that improve the usage and exploitation of digital technologies on a societal level. By encouraging a systematic focus on the individual, this workshop strives for a common understanding of the role of the individual and the challenges and opportunities owing to novel digital technologies.
Possible topics of submissions include, but are not limited to:
- Individual behavior in connected digital environments, such as
- Choice making in digital environments
- Individual behavior in social networks and the sharing economy
- Individual communication and consumption patterns
- Digital collaboration among individuals
- Positive and negative outcomes of digitization and connectivity, such as
- Effects of usage of digital devices and ubiquitous connectivity on individuals’ attitudes, behaviors and performance
- Techno-overload and techno-stress
- Privacy and IT-security issues for individuals’ private lives
- The impact of quantification on the self
- Development, exploitation and management of personal IS
- IT-facilitated learning
- Individual’s information system architectures and connected environments
- Development of solutions for individual use
- Personal health devices

Submission, review and acceptance process
Manuscripts should be submitted as email attachments to the workshop co-chairs at (email@example.com) with the subject heading "DOTI workshop submission".
The deadline for submission is 10 September 2018. Authors will be notified of acceptance/rejection decisions by 24 September 2018. As a paper development workshop there will no be formal proceedings; accepted papers will be made available to other attendees for the period of the workshop and a printed abstract will be included as part of the workshop materials.
There are two types of submissions: full papers and research-in-progress papers. The length of full papers and research-in-progress papers is limited to 7,000 words and 4,500 words respectively (excluding references). The format of the submission is a Word or PDF document that includes a title, author names and affiliations, and 3-5 keywords. The submission should follow the ICIS formatting guidelines (https://icis2018.aisconferences.org/submissions/submission-formatting-checklist).
All submissions to DOTI must represent original work that has not already been published in a journal or conference proceedings. If the work has been presented at another conference or is currently under consideration for publication or presentation elsewhere, the authors must disclose this fact. At least one author for every accepted paper must register for the workshop and be prepared to present their ideas in person (both full and RIP papers will be presented). Due to the strong emphasis of the workshop on paper development, the workshop schedule ensure room for detailed discussions and each presentation will be accompanied by a discussant providing direct feedback to the individual work.
