Welcome to

The 28th WORKSHOP ON INFORMATION TECHNOLOGIES AND SYSTEMS (WITS 2018)

DECEMBER 16-18, 2018, Santa Clara, CA, USA

The 28th Annual Workshop on Information Technologies and Systems (WITS’18) will be held in Santa Clara, CA, on December 16-18, 2018, just after the International Conference on Information Systems (ICIS). The purpose of the workshop is to provide a forum for discussion and interaction among scholars with research interests in the cutting-edge issues of information technologies and systems. The theme of WITS’18 is “Transforming Future at the Heart of Technology and Innovation.”

Silicon Valley is the heart of technology and innovation. It is the birthplace of numerous companies that have impacted the lives of ordinary people, changed how businesses function, and lead the world in shaping the future by inventing the next-generation technologies. As a community of IT design science researchers, we are interested in the issues related to how these technologies affect consumers, businesses, society, and our world. We develop ways for responsibly designing new technologies and analyze them rigorously to advance our world towards a better future. This thought motivates our theme, under which we solicit papers addressing technical, design-related, economic, and societal issues emerging from the rapid digital innovations happening across the globe.

WITS invites research papers in a broad range of topics. Papers should utilize any problem-solving paradigm, such as empirical, analytical, behavioral, experimental, or computational. Topics should cover novel ideas in the areas including, but not limited to:

Agent-based Systems
Agile System Development
Cloud Computing and Virtualization
Information Personalization and Recommender Systems
Computational Ontology
Data, Text, and Web Mining
