The Special Interest Group on the Adoption and Diffusion of Information Technology (SIG ADIT) is over 30 years old and will again host a pre-ICIS workshop for people interested in information technology adoption and diffusion (DIGIT). DIGIT will be held on Sunday, December 13, 2020. The theme this year is “IS Innovation Adoption, Use, and Diffusion in a World of Disruptions".
For decades, IS research on adoption and diffusion has tracked and explained how individuals and organizations use technology. This has been a steady evolution from considering mandatory use contexts of IT within organizations (e.g., PC, ERP systems), to focusing on individual decisions to adopt and use technology in volitional contexts, to unpacking the complex situation of advice giving or recommender systems (Benbasat 2018). Yet, the beginning of 2020 has unveiled a new host of disruptions, including a global pandemic and powerful civil rights protests and political movements. These phenomena are still unfolding but IS is at the heart of many of our solutions to cope with these disruptions. Now, individuals, organizations, and whole ecosystems have been forced to innovatively use technology - from virtual meetings replacing in-person gatherings, to the rapid digitization of processes, to using smart devices to track individuals for contact tracing and disease prevention initiatives. These situations are ripe with individuals, organizations, and society using information technology in novel ways, and our understanding of them will likely benefit from the theoretical lenses used in adoption and diffusion research. Please see our DIGIT 2020 Call for Papers for further details.
