This year, the 4th annual workshop on Developing Activity Theory in Information Studies (DATIS) will be placed at the European Conference on Information Systems (ECIS), Stockholm, Sweden.
- Date: June 11th 2019
- Place: Stockholm, Sweden.
The purpose of the workshop is to continue to provide a forum for information systems and information management scholars using activity theory. Over the last two decades the use of activity theory has developed within the field of information systems, as well as related fields such as Human Computer Interaction, information studies, organisation studies and communications. Building on this interest the aim of the workshop is threefold:
- Strengthen and build the community of scholars within information systems using activity theory.
- Provide an opportunity for scholars to reflect and gain feedback on work in progress or gain fresh perspectives.
- Provide support for researchers that are starting to explore activity theory.
The workshop will provide a unique opportunity to bring together early career researchers and more established researchers to discuss issues of interest and share research work. It also brings together scholars that may be working in separate areas of information systems but have a shared interest in developing activity theory.
