Information Systems at OR60

Following an extremely successful Information Systems stream in 2017, UKAIS and the Operational Research Society (home of the European Journal of Information Systems) are delighted to offer an Information Systems stream at OR60 in 2018.

********* Information Systems at OR60 *********

Annual Operational Research Society Conference (OR60)
11 – 13 September 2018
Lancaster University, Bailrigg, Lancaster, United Kingdom

A collaborative stream between the Operational Research Society and the UK Academy for Information Systems.

Call for papers

New developments in Analytics, Big Data, Data Science, and Artificial Intelligence rely on digital devices and the Internet of Things (IoT) that are in continuous use and are capable of monitoring the minutiae of our lives. Huge quantities of real time data are generated and processed through pre-determined algorithms that provide the information that many decision makers depend on. However, the quality of the information that is produced by these algorithms is contingent on the quality of the information systems and their data. Therefore, embedding sophisticated analytics efforts and simulation models into the everyday work of the business requires integration with the processes and information systems that support them combined with changing the behavior of the people who perform that work.

Motivated by a symbiotic relationship, this collaborative stream between the Operational Research Society and the UK Academy for Information Systems seeks contributions that examine the relationships between information systems and operational research for the benefit of individuals, organizations and/or wider society.


The stream’s topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

 •      Algorithmic decision making and people
 •      Big data analytics
 •      Big data and Internet of Things in organizations
 •      Business analytics and business value
 •      Business Intelligence
 •      Co-creating and capturing business value from IT
 •      Cognitive computing
 •      Information sharing and big data analytics
 •      Machine learning and analytics
 •      Managing big data projects
 •      Robot process automation
 •      Strategic and change management issues stemming from big data analytics

Abstract Submission

Prospective authors are welcome to discuss proposals for papers with stream organizers, in advance of submission.

Authors need to submit a title and 300-word abstract of their paper by 31 May 2018.

Abstracts should not contain mathematical symbols, graphs, tables, or references. The abstract should state if the paper is theoretical, practical, or a mix of the two. It should indicate important methodological information and major results. It is not compulsory to produce a full paper in order to present at the conference.
