Gmunden Retreat on Neuro-Information-Systems (NeuroIS) 2015

  • Conference Call
  • NeuroIS is a field in Information Systems (IS) that makes use of neuroscience and neurophysiological tools and theories to better understand the development, adoption, and impact of information and communication technologies. The Gmunden Retreat on NeuroIS is a leading academic conference for presenting research and development projects at the nexus of IS and neurobiology. This annual conference has the objective to promote the successful development of the NeuroIS field. The conference activities are primarily delivered by and for academics, though works often have a professional orientation. The event – organised by the Johannes Kepler Universität (JKU) Linz – is taking place on June 1 – 3, 2015 in Gmunden, Austria – a much frequented health and summer resort providing an inspiring environment for the retreat. In 2009, the inaugural conference was organized. Established on an annual basis, further conferences took place from 2010 – 2014.

    Conference Topics

    NeuroIS examines topics lying at the intersection of IS research and neurophysiology and the brain sciences. Specifically, NeuroIS studies comprise conceptual and empirical works, as well as theoretical and design science research. It includes research based on all types of neuroscience and neurophysiological methods, spanning the following techniques, among others:

    • functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI)
    • electroencephalograhy (EEG)
    • transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS)
    • near infrared spectroscopy (NIRS)
    • brain lesion studies
    • quantitative and molecular genetics
    • hormone assessments
    • galvanic skin response
    • heart rate, eye-​tracking, and facial electromyography

    Contributions may address the following topics, among others:

    • employment of neuroscience and neurophysiological methods to study IS phenomena (e.g., technology adoption, mental workload, website design, flow, virtual worlds, technostress, emotions and human-​computer interaction, e– commerce, social networks, information behavior, trust, IT security, usability, avatars, music and user interfaces, multitasking, memory, attention, IS design science, risk, knowledge processes, business process modeling, ERP systems),
    • application of neuroscience and neurophysiological theories and concepts to advance IS theorizing
    • identification of the neural correlates of IS constructs based on neuroscience methods
    • software prototypes of NeuroIS applications, which use bio-​signals (e.g., EEG, skin conductance, pupil dilation) as system input
    • discussion of methodological and ethical issues and evaluation of the status of the NeuroIS field

    Publication Opportunities

    The conference proceedings will be published by Springer (series “Lecture Notes in Information Systems and Organisation”), and hence all accepted papers will be available online through the SpringerLink Digital Library, readily accessible by all subscribing libraries around the world, and will be indexed by a number of corresponding services.

    This conference is supported by the academic journals Business & Information Systems Engineering, DATA BASE for Advances in Information Systems and Journal of Information Technology Theory and Application. The authors of the best research papers will be invited to submit full paper versions to the journals through a fast track review process. Journal selection mainly depends on the specific focus of a paper.

    Dr. Hermann Zemlicka Award

    The NeuroIS community lost a visionary thinker. Dr. Hermann Zemlicka, who was an Austrian politician, member of the Gmunden City Council, and an entrepreneur, passed away at age 55 in June 2012. Dr. Hermann Zemlicka significantly contributed to the establishment of academic activities in Gmunden. Specifically, he was one of the major supporters of the “NeuroIS idea,” and he helped to establish the Gmunden Retreat on NeuroIS. Without his visionary support, it would not have been possible to bring this conference into being. In memoriam of this outstanding person, the Dr. Hermann Zemlicka Award will be given to “the most visionary paper.” The paper will be selected by the conference and program co-​chairs.
