Room: F4
Date: 28 May 11:00 - 12:30


A quarter-century after the publication of one of the most prominent models in Information Systems (IS) adoption and diffusion research, this track focuses on a better understanding of various factors leading to diverse behavioral responses such that some IS and information and communication technologies (ICT) are successfully adopted while others are rejected. Although this field of study is considered to be one of the more mature research areas within the IS discipline, constantly emerging technologies, contexts of use, and stakeholder groups ensure that the area provides a lot of potential for exciting and fruitful investigation. Indeed, the emergence of such new technologies, contexts, and users raises the issue of whether previous research findings remain applicable to these new circumstances or whether new theoretical explanations are required. Especially in terms of methodologies, more approaches addressing these new circumstances and capturing all nuances in adoption decision making are clearly needed. Furthermore, new research approaches on collecting (i.e. experiments, action research, mixed methods, longitudinal approaches) and analyzing data (i.e. latent growth models, agent based modeling, data mining) may provide a significant step towards a better understanding of these factors driving and inhibiting IS usage. The aim of the track therefore is to provide a common platform for the presentation and discussion of original research into issues surrounding IS/ICT adoption, discontinuation, and rejection from various stakeholder group perspectives and at societal, organizational, and individual level. Unique papers with great ideas and novel contributions will be fast-tracked to a journal.

Software reuse can lower costs and increase the quality of software development. Despite a large body of research focused on technical and organisational factors, there is still limited research on the software developers’ perspective regarding software component reuse. Therefore, this paper investigates the developers’ adoption intention to use existing software components. Information system ... More

Although feature updates are a ubiquitous phenomenon in both professional and private IT usage, they have to date received little attention in the IS post-adoption literature. Drawing on expectation-confirmation theory and the IS continuance literature, we investigate whether, when and how incremental feature updates affect users’ continuance intentions (CI). Based on a controlled laboratory exp ... More

The activity of self-tracking is an emerging trend that often involves adopting wearable technology. Vendors promise new personal insights and opportunities to optimize health and lifestyle by adopting such devices. Spurred by these promises, users are also driven by curiosity and exploration to adopt and use the device with the aim of quantifying the self for the purpose of self-knowledge through ... More
