Welcome to the CPR 2018 Conference Website!
People Working with IT: Transforming Healthcare
Location: Buffalo – Niagara Falls, USA.
June 18-20, 2018
For over 50 years, ACM SIGMIS CPR conference (Computers and People Research) has engaged the academic and practitioner communities in understanding issues pertaining to the intersection of information technology and people. From its roots in the IT workforce, CPR has broadened its focus to deal with all aspects of this important and complex relationship. We are delighted to welcome the 2018 ACM SIGMIS CPR conference to the beautiful Niagara Falls region, in Buffalo, from June 18-20, 2018. The Buffalo Niagara region is a hub for IT research and healthcare research and development.
This year’s conference will feature both a general information systems track and a conference theme track. In the general information systems track, we will feature topics at the intersection of information technology and people such as IT leadership, adoption, use, inclusion and workforce. For these topics, we invite submissions pertaining to the entire range of subject-areas pertaining to how information systems are designed, implemented, used, and managed by individuals, groups, organizations and society.
Additionally, we will have a conference theme track, focused on how IT is transforming healthcare. For this track, we invite papers examining how IT is transforming healthcare services, including their clinical, administrative, process-related, epidemiological or public health aspects. Given the interdisciplinary nature of the theme, we encourage submissions addressing multiple levels of analysis (individual, team, organization, and societal), and drawing on a variety of perspectives (healthcare, information systems, operations management, organizational behavior, computer science, economics, sociology, psychology, etc.).
We look forward to welcoming you!
