AMCIS 2009 : The Diffusion, Impacts, Adoption and Usage of ICTs upon Society Track
The aim of this mini-track will be to offer a global perspective of how ICTs are being diffused, used and adopted within society (households, small (micro) to medium sized organsiations, and social communities). By undertaking this research academics, industry and government agencies will learn of how ICTs are being utilised by various societies and what measures are being undertaken to have households and the various social communities adopt and use the ICTs with a further consideration of the impacts of the ICTs. Academic research has been focusing upon the diffusion, adoption and usage of broadband since about 2000. By undertaking this research and offering this track, now the focus could offer innovative ideas of diffusing, adopting and using ICTs that have not been considered before.
Topics of interest to this track include:
� The adoption and usage of ICTs, broadband, mobile phones and other ICTs within households
� The impacts of ICTs upon households
� The adoption and usage of ICTs upon various social communities (eg. Residential neighbourhoods)
� The impacts of ICTs upon various social communities
� Evaluation of the technological and non-technological aspects of the adoption and usage of ICTs
� Evaluating the technological and non-technological aspects of the impacts of ICTs
� The diffusion, adoption and usage of ICTs within households
� The diffusion, adoption and usage of ICTs within various social communities
� Stakeholder theory and the adoption, diffusion and usage of ICTs
� Policies and diffusion theories that lead to the adoption and usage of ICTs
� Project management and the diffusion of ICTs
� Project Management and the adoption and usage of ICTs
� Project Management and the impacts of ICTs
� Human Computer Interaction issues related to the adoption, usage and impact factors in the context of ICTS.
