Last week we presented our results on trust management at the European Conference on Information Systems (ECIS 2019), June 10-14 in Stockholm, Sweden. In the publication we deal with the question of how trust in information systems can be actively promoted through management decisions. Especially in the domain of business informatics, trust has to be integrated more strongly into the design of information systems, for example by taking trust more into account in process management.
This year's SPP1921 Tandem Workshop will take place in Münster, Germany, March 28-29, 2019. The venue will be the conference rooms of the Factory Hotels at the Germania Campus (An der Germania-Brauerei 5, 48159 Münster). We are very much looking forward to welcoming all partners of the priority program in Münster, as well as to an exciting exchange between the nine tandem projects.
Current research shows that trust is a significant aspect for user experience, acceptance and system usage. Thus, the question of trust is also highly relevant in the design of systems. But what actually constitutes trust in digital systems? At the meeting of the DesignForum Münster, Meinald Thielsch and Sarah Meeßen presented current results and theoretical models from the Getrost vergessen project on this topic and discussed practical recommendations with the designers present.
Last week, on September 12, we presented our evaluation tool at the "Conference on Intentional Forgetting in Organizations and Work Settings" in Potsdam. This is a web-based tool that we use to evaluate the different IT artifacts in our studies.
Riehle, D. M., Fleischer, S., & Becker, J. (2018) Building a Web-Based Information System to Evaluate IT-Artefacts in Online Experiments - The Case of Intentional Forgetting. Paper presented at the Conference on Intentional Forgetting in Organisations and Work Settings, Potsdam, Germany.
As part of the "SPP 1921: Intentional Forgetting in Organizations", the Getrost Vergessen team also met for the tandem workshop in Limburg an der Lahn from May 3-4.
At the end of the first half of the current project phase of SPP 1921, the interdisciplinary tandems used the meeting for exchange as well as for planning the second project phase.
At the 10th conference of the Division of Industrial, Organizational and Business Psychology of the German Psychological Society in Dresden, the first results of the project were reported in the context of the presentation "Trust in Information Systems - Critical Incidents and Model Development". The results of two studies show that especially the reliability of information systems as well as the credibility of the provided information promote a trustful use of information systems.
The project "Getrost Vergessen" is now also present on the Internet. From today on you will find news about the progress of the project as well as further announcements here. We try to publish a new article here for each milestone reached.
