The course addresses the key question about the relations between design and implementation of information infrastructures and organizational structures and performances. Infrastructure convergence across networks includes mobile communication and the Internet besides the telecommunication networks and cable-TV. These trends transform organizational relationships using information technologies for a multitude of new services. The information infrastructures enhance the value of information systems for information management, enterprise systems and electronic commerce. How do we research these issues in IS? What are the methodological challenges? The summer school has invited presentations from leading American and European researchers on these issues.

Invited professors are:
Allen S. Lee, Professor, Department of Information Systems, School of Business, Virginia Commonwealth University. Editor-in-Chief of Management Information Systems Quarterly.
Allens research interests are qualitative, interpretive, and case research on how information technology is used in organizations; information systems implementation; electronic communications; research methodologies. Allen has recently contributed papers on media richness (ex. electronic mail) and on relevance versus rigor in IS research.
Kalle Lyytinen, Professor, University of Jyväskylä and since January 2001 Department of Information Systems, Case Western Reserve University. At the editorial board of Accounting, Management and Information Technology, European Journal of Information Systems, The Journal of Strategic IS, Journal of Information Systems, MIS Quarterly, and Information Systems Research.
Kalles research interests include systems design methods, design methodologies, especially social action and linguistic theories underlying systems design approaches, computer supported co-operative work, IS research strategies and their selection, management, planning and implementation of information systems as a strategic issue. Recently he has conducted a major research project on standards.
Yvonne Rogers, University of Sussex, UK.
Yvonne is a reader in the School of Cognitive and Computing Sciences. Prior to this, she worked at the Open University where she developed a distance learning Master's Course in HCI. Before that she worked in industry as a senior researcher in a Human Factors Lab at Alcatel. In 1996, Yvonne was a visiting professor at Stanford University and Apple Research Labs. In 1991, she spent 6 months as a visiting scholar in the Cognitive Science Dept, University California San Diego (UCSD).
From the Ph.D. programs network in the Nordic countries a number of professors
participate as staff during the course:
-Mogens Kyhn Pedersen
The board of the Ph.D. program on Design and Management of Information Technology
-Associate Professor, Ph.d. Keld Bødker, Department of Computer Science, Roskilde University
-Associate Professor, Ph.d. Erling Havn, Centre for Tele-Information, Technical University of Denmark
-Associate Professor Finn Kensing, The IT-University, Copenhagen.
-Professor, Dr.merc. Mogens Kuehn Pedersen, Department of Informatics, Copenhagen Business School.
The course consists of lectures, working groups and informal discussions. The invited professors present their research and research approaches in two lectures each and participate in informal discussions. In the working groups each Ph.D. student presents a position paper on problems and potentials of his/her Ph.D. project for discussion with participating faculty. Ph.D. students individually consult with members of the faculty. Please find the detailed program here.
We welcome PhD students from the Nordic countries as well as from the Baltic countries and Northwest Russia. Travel expenses, room and board are paid for by grants from The Danish Research Academy and NorFA, and administered by the organizer. There is no tuition fee. The number of PhD participants is limited to 35.
Participation is based on admission. You apply for participation by sending in a position paper (app. 5 pages) to the summer school organizer by e-mail along with a recommendation from your supervisor (position paper and recommendation as attached Word-documents). In the position paper you present your Ph.D. project work in relation to the summer school theme (information infrastructures for the networked organization). Students from the Baltic countries and Northwest Russia must ask for the Nordic Scholarship Scheme from the organizer to be filled in and sent along with their application to the summer school.
Needless to say the invited lecturers expect you to have read/familiarized yourself with the reading material.
For the workshop on "Publication Strategies" please read the following
1. "Strategizing for Compelling and Significant Research" (June 1999).
2. "The Role of Information Technology in Reviewing and Publishing Manuscripts at MIS Quarterly" (December 1999).
3. "Irreducibly Sociological Dimensions in Research and Publishing" (December 2000).
