Design Science Research is becoming firmly established as a key research paradigm in mainstream information systems research.
The importance of design was first brought to light by Herbert Simon’s famous “Sciences of the Artificial”. Since then, an entire body of research embracing goals to design and invent innovative artifacts such as constructs, frameworks, models, methods, processes and systems has emerged. The creation of (IT) artefacts and their evaluation is central to the Design Science Research paradigm. This conference will explore both the design methodology aspects as well as research conducted using Design Science.
The objective of the conference is to bring together researchers from different backgrounds ranging from computer science, information systems, and software engineering to social ethnography designers to create a forum for discussing novel solutions to emerging problems.
The Fifth DESRIST Conference will bring together researchers and practitioners engaged in Design Science Research in the broadest sense. We invite contributions (research papers, demos and panels) that describe your work in all areas of Design Science Research. These include but are not limited to:
