Date: 28 May 16:00 - 18:00


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.

Past research on the broadband digital divide indicates a widening divide in which developing countries are falling further behind countries in the developed world. In response to this problem, the World Bank has advocated a "mobile first" strategy for developing countries. Unfortunately, there is little understanding of what determines mobile broadband adoption or diffusion in developing countrie ... More

As the employment of health information technology steadily increases the quality of care as well as the safety of patients increasingly depends on if and how information systems (IS) are used in clinical contexts. Still little insight exists in IS research about what determines and hinders the effective use of IS, especially in hospital contexts. By conducting comparative case-studies in two Germ ... More

Whilst the adoption and diffusion of mobile banking has revolutionised the banking sector in developing countries, paucity remains on exploring the role of mobile banking for government-to-person (G2P) transfers. Through an interpretive case study of the Benazir Income Support Programme (BISP) in Pakistan, the paper investigated how the adoption of mobile phones enabled and constrained poor women ... More

The digitalization of business processes is a crucial method for cutting down administrative costs, improve productivity in business processes, and achieving process transparency. Since invoices are some of the most important documents exchanged between business partners, it makes sense that in-voices be sent and received electronically. There are no formal rules that determine the format of elec- ... More
