 The Workshop will be held on June 10, at Stockholm University’s Kista campus

Submission instructions:



The main purpose of the workshop is to arrange discussions on using a socio-technical perspective in organizational system development, the long term goal being to make this workshop a meeting place for the community of researchers and practitioners interested in the socio-technical approach. Following the purpose, only part of the workshop is devoted to presentations, the rest is designated for collaborative work. This year we follow the practice introduced at STPIS’17 and will be working on a real case from the local industry.
