Conference scope

Today, the role of Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) in shaping human activity in organizations and in society has become more and more prominent. But many decades after their introduction, the question remains:

What do we know about their design, their usage, and their impact?  What have we learned after all these years of research?

This conference is concerned with these ICTs, shedding light on how they were, how they are, and how they will be understood, adopted, adapted, and used within organizations and more generally, within the society as a whole.

The main focus will be on how actors understand the potential of ICTs to support organizational activities and hence how they adopt and adapt these technologies to achieve their goals.


We are interested in different areas of the organization's strategy through new business models, competitive strategies, knowledge management, etc. Specific areas are concerned such as marketing, human resource management, project management, operation management, innovation management, etc. These questions can de addressed both in private and public sector either national or international e.g. though development policies, in industry and services. We are also interested in how organization impact society through sustainable development and social responsibility. And finally, how ICTs use social media networks in the process of value co-creation.

We invite submissions in all areas of ICTs and organizations especially innovative, interesting and rigorously developed conceptual and empirical contributions.


We also encourage multi- or inter-disciplinary research.

ICTO2015 will be organized in Paris
