Luleå University of Technology's Information Systems research subject focuses on the design and use of information technology in relation to humans, organizations, and societies. Our vision is to design and develop knowledge about the digital transformation for a sustainable society, taking our starting point in local conditions to make global impact.
To achieve our vision, we acknowledge and recognize the SISA new definition to our discipline: “Information systems is the scientific subject that develops knowledge about digitalization and its conditions, meanings, values and consequences in individual, organizational and societal contexts. The subject includes studies and development of digital practices, resources, artifacts, and systems. Digital practices include management, design, implementation and use of digital resources, artifacts and systems”.
In line with our vision and the contemporary definition by SISA, our research group addresses the transformative potential of information technology for humans, organizations and societies alike.
Key research areas:
• Digital transformation & innovation
• Human-centered (responsible) innovation and design
• Information security
• Cyber security
• Decision science
• Data science
• Data architecture for AI
Our research subject provides a forum to conduct multidisciplinary research in the areas of digital transformation, information security, and data analytics. We, the IS subject, encourage collaborative research where faculty members from different subjects are collaborating with one-another to solve contemporary research problems.
