Pre-Event – Training Course

Theme: Getting Started with NeuroIS: Choosing Tools, Methodologies, and Theories

The NeuroIS Training Course 2019, an offer of the NeuroIS Society, is designed to give participants a basic foundation in major concepts, methods, and tools related to NeuroIS research. This course is specifically designed to collaborate in actively developing NeuroIS research strategies for early-stage research ideas of interest to the participants. Participants are asked to submit research ideas in advance, and to come prepared to briefly present and discuss their ideas in a workshop atmosphere. The tutors – Prof. Fred D. Davis (Texas Tech University, USA), Pierre-Majorique Léger (HEC Montréal, Canada), and René Riedl (University of Applied Sciences Upper Austria and University of Linz, Austria) – will provide feedback and suggestions based on the nature of the research ideas. Participation should provide value for IS, computer science, and management PhD students and faculty. There are no specific prerequisites for participation. English is the course language.

The course uses an interactive teaching approach, and it covers fundamental themes, including the following questions: Why do we need NeuroIS? How to conduct NeuroIS studies? What constitutes a good NeuroIS contribution? The course takes a beginner rather than an expert approach to the material presented, and it is mainly based on the following book: Riedl, R. & Léger, P.-M.: Fundamentals of NeuroIS: Information Systems and the Brain. Springer, 2016.

Date and Time: June 4, 2019, 09:00 – 16:00
Venue and Place: Schloss Wilhelminenberg, Vienna, Austria

Research ideas must be submitted in English to not later than May 10, 2019 (please send a WORD or PDF file). Research idea documents may not exceed 2 pages of text and should include author name(s) and contact information, as well as a description of: (1) problem statement, (2) research question(s) and/or hypotheses, (3) intended methods/tools, (4) expected contribution, and (5) key references. Participants must be prepared to present their research ideas at the course (the presentation must not exceed 10 minutes). Based on this presentation, the tutors will provide their comments and recommendations. Based on this interactive format, it is hoped that participants get a maximum of feedback on their research ideas. Please note that it is possible to participate without submitting a research idea document.
