Track Description

The purpose of this track is to provide a forum for research on broadband, ubiquitous and location-aware information systems. With the rollout of next generation fixed broadband networks now underway in both New Zealand and Australia, there will be increased opportunity for the deployment of advanced information systems that take advantage of the increased capacity and improved quality of this ultrafast broadband connectivity. Increased uptake of mobile devices and the availability of ubiquitous mobile connectivity is also creating opportunities for innovative service development and delivery.

The track welcomes theoretical, empirical or field research based papers that investigate emerging issues in the application and impact of broadband and ubiquitous technologies on organisations, business processes, products, services, employees, supply chains and customers. Papers are especially welcome that describe applications of these technologies that result in transformational organisational or social change, or which may cause disruptive changes to existing or future business, industry and government structures.

Potential authors are encouraged to submit papers that report:
