Call for papers: International Conference on DSS -- deadline extended to 3/31/2009
San Francisco, CA, March 3, 2009 -- The paper submission deadline for the International Conference on DSS, San Francisco, California USA, on August 5, 2009 has been extended to March 31, 2009.
The theme of this one day International Conference is to acknowledge the twentieth anniversary of the founding of the International Society for Decision Support Systems (ISDSS) founded by Professors Clyde Holsapple and Andrew Whinston by reflecting on the past twenty years of DSS activity and envisioning the next twenty years of it. The conference will be held on August 5, 2009, the day prior to the Americas Conference on Information Systems (August 6-9), at the same conference venue (San Francisco Marriott).
The conference will consist of three segments. The first, Reflecting on Yesterday, will examine the rich history of DSS research and teaching by drawing on contributions from the field�s luminaries. Contributions from pioneering DSS researchers and teachers have been solicited. Their responses will be synthesized by the program committee into an overview of the DSS field that outlines the accomplishments made and the challenges that exist.
The second segment, Assessing Today, and the third segment, Envisioning Tomorrow, will consist of presentations based on accepted papers in each category, as described below.
Papers in this category are encouraged to define the challenges facing today's researchers and teachers. Papers may describe current research (in progress or completed) or describe best practices in teaching DSS. Papers may also identify issues or obstacles to research or teaching and offer potential strategies for confronting any current challenges.
Topics to consider include (but are not limited to): DSS for specific problem domains (e.g., healthcare, planning, production) Human interface issues (e.g., mobile environments) in today's DSS What is a DSS today? What constitutes DSS research today? What should DSS architecture include today? How should models be used in DSS today? How does one best teach DSS today? What are teaching strategies in DSS today?
