This conference aims to bring together scholars and practitioners from interdisciplinary areas for the enrichment of scholarly deliberations on the adoption, usage, impact and potential of emerging technologies. To achieve this goal, scholars and practitioners are invited to present their ideas and findings at the IFIP WG 8.6 Conference on “Re-Imagining Diffusion of Information Technology and Systems: A Continuing Conversation” to be held at Indian Institute of Management Tiruchirappalli, India in 2020. Theoretical and empirical papers employing quantitative, qualitative, and/or critical methods are welcomed. Submissions with a focus on addressing the following research questions will be addressed:
How do we characterize the shifts of scale and state change we have seen in IT/IS since the early 90s? What are the interacting variables and enabling forces? How do we describe the rate of change, its arc, affordances and constraints?
How do we reframe our ideas about how the (possibly different) rates of IT/IS diffusion impact individuals, groups, organizations and societies in general?
