Economics of IS
Information Technology (IT) is creating and disrupting markets, transforming organizations, empowering individual users, and forcing us to rethink how we interact with other economic actors. The Economics of IS track welcomes papers looking at how IT is transforming behavior of economic agents (organizations or individuals) and changing how we create, make, distribute, or consume economic goods and services.
