4th Design Science Research in Information Systems and Technologies (DESRIST) 2009 conference
* In-Cooperation with ACM, SIGCHI, SIGMIS, SIGCAS, and SIGDA.

Location: Philadelphia, PA, USA
Date: May 7-8, 2009

Theme: Diversity in Design Science

Design Science research is becoming firmly established as a research paradigm in several disciplines related to information sciences, information systems and technologies. The Design Science research community believes that Design Science involves creating, constructing, studying and evaluating innovative artifacts such as constructs, frameworks, models, methods, and systems; as well as the study of methods, behaviors, and processes related to design. 

Design, by definition, is aimed at creating things that did not exist in the world. Design Science, then, aims at furthering our understanding of how this comes about. Modes to achieve this include actually designing things, constructing abstractions that can help in this designing, and studying design activities at individual, group, organizational, industrial and societal levels of analyses. This notion of Design and Design Science presents innumerable challenges for information technologies because of the inherently interdependent nature of information technologies and the phenomena they are expected to represent, supplement, support, automate and transform.

Call for Contributions

The Fourth DESRIST Conference, in-cooperation with ACM, is a meeting place that will bring together researchers and practitioners engaged in Design Science research in the broadest sense. Questions and concerns in Design Science, therefore, relate to choosing domains in which individuals and teams would intervene, the context in which these interventions would take place, and the consequences of these interventions. We invite contributions (manuscripts, demos and panels) that describe your work in the area of Design Science research. These include but are not limited to:

* Science of Design and Design Theory
* Philosophical foundations of Design Science 
* Evaluation of Design Science Research
* Infrastructure Design
* Design Processes
* Representation for Design 
* Design Evolution
* Organizational Design 
* Design for Innovation 
* Design Economics
* Modularity and Rules in Design
* Architectures for Design
* Meta-Design Control in Design
* Design of Software-Intensive Systems

The domains may include (but not limited to): Software, Services, Database, Business Processes, Information Systems, User Interfaces, Knowledge Discovery and Management, Data Mining, Medical, Health and Bio-Informatics, Social and Virtual Collaboration, Networking and Multimedia Systems, Grid and Peer-to-Peer Computing, and Pervasive Computing.

Select Papers will be invited to The Journal of AIS

# Herbert A Simon Award for the best Design Research paper of the conference
# Vinton G. Cerf Award for the best Student Authored paper
Note: For a paper to be considered a 'student paper' and thus be eligible for the Vinton G. Cerf Award, its sole author or lead author must be a current student.
