WITS 2016 (Workshop on Information Technology & Systems)
Dec 16, 2016 05:30 PM
The Workshop on Information Technologies and Systems (WITS) was established in in 1991 as an academic workshop focusing on research that is quantitatively/technically oriented. However,over the years although the quantitative focus has been a core feature of the workshop, the research presented has broadened to other methodologies. The workshop invites research focused on addressing complex business problems or societal issues using current and emerging information technologies. Of particular interest to the WITS community is research that can change the way information technology functions (e.g., by designing, modifying, or constructing systems) so that it can better solve real-world problems is. All problem-solving paradigms –including empirical, analytical, behavioral, experimental, and computational – are invited. Integrative approaches, whether methodological or functional, are welcome. WITS research is often prescriptive (toward providing a solution to a problem), rather than descriptive (explaining a phenomenon), unless the explanation clearly helps in developing a solution.
