Welcome!

Modern society and larger organizations cannot be efficiently organized without IT-systems. However, not all interactions between humans and IT-systems are successful - for multiple reasons. How do groups of humans in an organization or the whole society interact with IT-systems? Where does the human as a group or individual influence the system and where does it influence us? And how can the increasingly available information about social interactions be used to improve IT-systems, to make them more socially aware?

In this workshop we invite you to reflect about organizations and society and their interactions with IT-systems, from a legal perspective or a political viewpoint, whether you are a computer scientist, a social scientist, an artist, from academia or industry. The workshop is open for all original contributions of maximum 12 pages (LNCS style), which will be peer-reviewed. A publication by Springer in their complex system series is currently under negotiation. As the field is still very dispersed, without a common conference or journal, we explicitly welcome review-like articles which summarize the state of the art on the interaction of society or organizations and IT-systems in your respective field.

The workshop will be held in conjuction with Informatik 2013, the 43rd annual meeting of the Gesellschaft für Informatik (GI) in Koblenz, Germany on September 16, 2013.
