Technical Committee 8

"Dear Visitor,

Welcome to the International Federation for Information Processing (IFIP), Technical Committee (TC 8), Information Systems (IS) website. We are honored that you are interested in IFIP TC 8.

IFIP was established in 1960 under the auspices of the United Nations UNESCO. TC 8 was formed in 1976. Since then, many of the luminaries and great leaders of IS have held leadership positions in TC 8 and its Working Groups (WGs). Where TC 8 is today is a testament to their vision and work. We stand on their shoulders.

TC 8 is further divided into WGs. As the name implies, the working groups are where members gather to advance the academic and professional interests of a more specific topic within IS. The number and focus of the TC 8 WGs have changed over the years along with the development of the IS. The current WG are:

Design and Evaluation of Information Systems

The Interaction of Information Systems and Organization

Decision Support Systems

E-Business Information Systems: Multi-disciplinary research and practice

Information Systems in Public Administration

Transfer and Diffusion of Information Technology

Enterprise Information Systems

Service-Oriented Systems (jointly with WGs 6.12 and 2.14)

Information Systems Security Research (jointly with TC 11.13)

I encourage you to visit the website of these WGs. WG members include many of the most active scholars, luminaries, and professionals in the world. Building connections with the people in these groups is central to remaining current in the discipline and building lasting professional relationships. "
