      Please forward

      IT in Health Care: Sociotechnical Approaches
      International Conference, Rotterdam, September 6-7, 2001

      Department of Health Policy and Management, Erasmus University Rotterdam


      Call for Papers

      In recent years, the importance of the 'social' has become thoroughly
      accepted within health care informatics. Whether labeled as 'social
      aspects', the 'organizational context' or 'human factors', it has
      become clear that a thorough understanding of these issues is crucial
      to information systems development. Within the field of health care
      informatics, scholars have started to develop and draw upon what we
      will call here 'sociotechnical' approaches: approaches that consider
      'social' and 'technical' aspects as inextricably intertwined, and as
      equally important in information systems design, implementation and
      evaluation. These approaches sometimes borrow from developments in
      science and technology studies, where the importance of studying the
      interrelation of 'social' and 'technical' elements has been a core
      tenet for quite some time. For these investigators, health care
      informatics is a fascinating field to explore because of the coming
      together of issues of professional work, patients' experiences and
      embodiment, and the development and employment of formal technologies.

      In this conference, we would like to further the depth and scope
      of sociotechnical approaches to health care IT by bringing together
      investigators from different fields: health care informatics,
      information systems research, sociology, science and technology
      studies, and so forth. The conference is aimed to be modest in
      size, to allow in-depth discussions and continuity between sessions.
      In addition to several plenary speakers selected from the different
      fields, both established scholars and junior researchers are invited
      to submit papers. Papers may deal with design practices, or with
      implementation or evaluation issues; they may consist of descriptive
      analyses of IT developments in health care, discuss the implications
      for practice in the field, or outline new ways of developing
      information systems. Both empirical and more theoretical discussions
      are welcome (the ideal paper should contain both). At this moment,
      confirmed plenary speakers are: Claudio Ciborra (London School of
      Economics), Ole Hanseth (University of Oslo), Eric Monteiro (Norwegian
      University of Science and Technology), Rob Proctor (University of
      Edinburgh), Joan Ash (Oregon Health Sciences University) and Marc Berg
      (Erasmus University). Within a few weeks, the definite program will
      be listed on the conference web-site.

      If you want to contribute to this conference, you should submit a
      title for your contribution and a one-page abstract BEFORE April 20th.
      A selection of the accepted papers will be included in a special issue
      of Methods of Information in Medicine. For this purpose, those whose
      abstracts have been accepted should submit a full paper by September
      1st. If you want to participate without presenting a paper, please
      also register as soon as possible, since the number of participants is
      limited.

      The conference fee is 215 Euro. For PhD students, we have a reduced
      rate of 110 Euro. These rates include lunch and drinks but do not
      include lodging. Since the week of 6-7 September is a popular one in
      Rotterdam (it is the week of the World Harbour Days, to mention one
      event), hotels do fill up quickly, so book a room as soon as possible!
      See the conference web site http://www.bmg.eur.nl/smw/ithc for a list
      of hotels. You can register by sending us an e-mail with your name,
      affiliation and address; registration is definite upon reception of
      the conference fee. Please pay the appropriate rate to bank account
      nr. 46 15 87 084, ABN AMRO bank in Rotterdam, the Netherlands, in the
      name of EUR/iBMG, mentioning 'ithc'. The swiftcode for the bank is
