The aim of the IFIP Working Group 8.3 DSS’2012 open conference is to explore the modern perspective of the fusion view on information systems identity and the implications of this view for decision support systems.
The conference takes its cue from the idea of "The Infusion of IS", originally introduced by Omar El Sawy in “The 3 Faces of IS Identity: Connection, Immersion, and Infusion,” (Communications of the AIS, Volume 12, November 2003). Moreover in his Keynote for DSS2010, Omar el Sawy presented the game-changer that "DSS has disappeared in the fabric of organizations: long live DSS". (You can download this DSS2010 Keynote here).
According to this game-changer challenge, decision support systems should achieve a total alignment with the context and the personal preferences of users.
The advantage of such a view is an opportunity of seamless integration between enterprise environments and decision support system components. The conference solicits papers that describe the application of fusion principles on decision support systems research and practice.
It is timely to explore the socio-technical approaches for fusing decision support, as well as opportunities and obstacles for achieving a total fusion of DSS systems in various contexts.
Papers were submitted from academics and practitioners. All submitted manuscripts were double blind peer-reviewed in full by at least two reviewers and members of the Program Committee. The acceptance of the contributions will be based on the originality of the work, the relevance for the conference themes and overall quality. Those selected are now included in the Conference Programme, which also includes three invited Keynote Presentations, and three Panel Discussions
In addition the DSS2012 Doctoral Consortium was organised on June 27, 2012
