Themes and Format for Workshop Position Papers
In order to guide the submissions of workshop position papers, the following themes have been formulated. However, submissions that combine several themes, and/or go beyond their scope, are all welcome:
- Case studies on IT quality-in-use from a lifecycle perspective
- Methodologies for user-driven design, development and deployment
- Assessing the impact of IT support on work processes and organisations
- Practical methods for quality-in-use observations, interviews and surveys
- Design of and results from quality assurance and certification processes
Urgent Research Questions
To provide some more guidance on topics for papers, the workshop organisers have also decided to formulated what they see as some of the most urgent questions for research:
- Components, how to measure quality when two systems are “never the same”?
- Consultants, how to certify the consultants who deploy the system, not only the system?
- “Supplier-less” systems, deployed by the users themselves, how to certify them?
- Blurred borders between systems & contexts of use, how to track traditions of use?
