The objective of the DSS research workshop is to provide a forum for communicating the latest research in decision support systems. Although the research workshop has a theme to encourage the submission in the areas related to the theme, submissions in other categories will also be considered. Completed as well as research in progress papers are welcome.

The best, completed research papers related to the theme of the workshop will be fast-tracked for publication consideration in the Canadian Journal of Administrative Science (CJAS), which potentially could form a special issue on the theme of the workshop. Visit the journal’s website at:

The theme of this year’s pre-ICIS SIG-DSS workshop is the strategic and behavior aspects of DSS (in e-market and traditional markets). The successful design and deployment of decision support systems (DSS) require insights in users’ behaviors, attitudes, and affective responses to the DSS technology and the process and outcome of using it. This is particularly true for web-based decision support tools, which have been deployed on the Web to assist consumers in their assessments and decisions regarding products and services. Furthermore, the design and deployment of successful DSS in an organization may require certain cultural environment and may need to fit into the business and IT strategies. The workshop solicits innovative and creative approaches in understanding users’ behaviors and organizations’ concerns regarding the design, development, deployment, use of DSS, including, but not limited to:

• The design-science perspective of developing and validating innovative DSS within organizations and for web-based systems

• Case studies of the use of DSS in organizations and their impacts and lessons learned

• Survey research approaches in evaluating impacts of DSS in traditional and Internet markets

• The connections between data mining and the development and use of DSS

• Studies of intelligent systems and agents and their use as decisions stools on the Web

• New heuristics and methodologies in DSS and their evaluations from users’ and developers’ perspectives

• Evaluations of web-based decision support systems from users’ or organizations’ point of view.

Please submit the paper by email attachment (as a Word file) directly to both Mariam Zahedi and Jaeki Song.
