International Journal of Technology and Human Interaction (IJTHI)

June 30, 2008

International Journal of Technology and Human Interaction (IJTHI)
http://www.igi-global.com/journals/details.asp?id=4290

The International Journal of Technology and Human Interaction (IJTHI) provides a platform for leading research that addresses issues of human and technology interaction. The research that the journal intends to publish should therefore be interdisciplinary and include aspects from a wide variety of disciplines. These disciplines range from more technical ones such as computer science, engineering, or information systems to non-technical descriptions of technology and human interaction from the point of view of sociology or philosophy. Apart from aiming to be interdisciplinary the journal will also aspire to provide a publication outlet for research questions and approaches that are novel and may find it difficult to be published in established journals following a rigid and exclusive structure. It is open to all research paradigms, be they empirical or conceptual, but requires that they be accessible and reflected. We also encourage the submission of high quality syntheses across research in different specialties that are interesting and comprehensible to all members of the IS community and related disciplines. Possible topics include (but are not limited to):

* Experiential learning though the use of technology in organizations
* Shaping of e-commerce through law and culture
* HCI design for trust development
* The influence of gender on the adoption and use of technology
* The phenomenology of e-government
* The value of intellectual capital in knowledge management
* Questions of computer or information ethics
* The relationship of theory and practice with regards to technology
* Ethical aspects of particular technologies, e.g. e-teaching, ERP, etc.
* Technological risks and their human basis
* Perceptions and conceptualizations of technology
* The intersection of humanities and sciences and its impact on technology use
* The social impact of specific technologies (e.g. biometrics, SCM, PGP,?)
* Normative questions of the development and use of technology
* Philosophy of technology
* Responsibility of Artificial Agents
* Technology assessment of software / hardware development
* Interaction and conversion between technologies and their impact on society
* The social shaping of technology and human interaction research
* Anthropological consequences of technology use

and all other related issues related to the interaction of technology and humans, either individually or socially.

EPSRC Digital Repositories e-Science Network

June 30, 2008

EPSRC Digital Repositories e-Science Network
http://www.dresnet.net/

The proposed Network is motivated by the potential for synergy between two fields of technology and technique, e-Science and Digital Repositories, and the benefits that will be obtained by increasing interaction and cooperation between researchers and practitioners in these fields. This was recognised by the keynote speech of Tony Hey at the Open Repositories 2007 conference. Tony Hey, currently VP of External Research at Microsoft Research, and former Director of the UK e-Science Core Programme, called for an integration of repositories into the new scholarly life cycle envisioned in e-Research. The digital material generated from and used by academic and other research is to an increasing extent being held in formally managed digital repositories. In many cases, these systems are used currently to hold relatively simple objects, for example an institution’s pre-prints and publications, or e-theses. However, some institutions are beginning to use them to manage research data in a variety of disciplines, including physical sciences, social sciences, and the arts and humanities, in part as a result of various programmes funded by the JISC. Repositories are changing not only in the type of content that they hold, but also in the ways they are used. A major motivation in setting up and populating digital repositories has been (and is) to make the results of research available to a wider audience, by encouraging or in some cases mandating deposit and open access principles. Repository software is, however, becoming more sophisticated, allowing complex digital content to be stored in such a way that its internal structure and external context can be explicitly represented, managed and exposed. A particular feature of the proposed Network is that it will operate across disciplines, including the arts, humanities and social sciences as well as the sciences in the narrower sense, as the technologies addressed are trans-disciplinary. They will strive to encourage inter-disciplinary contacts and collaborations, and to facilitate the transfer of knowledge and expertise gained within one discipline to other fields. Moreover, given the range of potential applications of the technologies, they do not expect interest in the Network to be restricted to the academic world, but also to include non-academic institutions. Consequently, they will encourage industrial participants, including commercial companies, cultural heritage organisations (e.g. museums, art galleries, and historic libraries), the media, and public/government bodies.
