Call for Book Chapters:

 

Greetings! Due to the Coronavirus pandemic call for the book has been extended and this is the final call for book chapters, for the following book:

Achieving Organizational Agility, Intelligence, and Resilience Through Information Systems.

 

Organizational agility may be termed as a set of processes that allows an organization to sense changes in the internal and external environment, respond proficiently and efficiently in a timely and cost-effective manner. Agility is advocated as an underlying characteristic for business survival and competitiveness. Organizational Agility is the ability of an organization to renew itself, adjust, change quickly, and succeed in a rapidly shifting, ambiguous, turbulent environment. On the other hand, organizational intelligence is the competence of an organization to create knowledge and utilize it to strategically adapt to its environment or marketplace. Finally, organizational resilience is the ability of an organization to anticipate, prepare for, react and adapt to incremental alteration and sudden disruptions in order to survive and prosper.

 

Information system can be seen as an integrated set of components for collecting, stockpiling, and processing data and for providing information, knowledge, and digital products to the external world. Business firms and other organizations rely on information systems to carry out and manage their operations, interact with their clients and suppliers, and compete in the marketplace. At the same time, information systems are also used to run inter-organizational supply chains and electronic markets. For instance, corporations use information systems to process financial accounts, to manage their human resources, and to reach their potential customers with online promotions.

 

Achieving Organizational Agility, Intelligence, and Resilience Through Information Systems is an authoritative reference source for the latest scholarly research on the widespread integration of technological innovations around the globe and examines how organizational agility, intelligence and resilience interprets, effects and improves the entrepreneurships around the globe. Featuring emergent research from theoretical perspectives and case studies, this book is ideally designed for professionals, students, practitioners, and academicians.

Ethical Data Mining Applications for Socio-Economic Development Proposal Submission Deadline: June 30, 2012
Full Chapter Submission Deadline: August 30, 2012
Ethical Data Mining Applications for Socio-Economic Development
A book edited by Dr. Hakikur Rahman and Dr. Isabel Ramos, University of Minho, Portugal

 

To be published by IGI Global: http://www.igi-global.com

 

Information

Introduction
Data mining is the process of discovering significant, valuable and interesting structures and relationships in large and complex volumes of data, especially in data-enriched areas like finance, insurance, marketing, technology, science, engineering, research, environmental and biomedical sciences, and in many other socio-economic domains. In the socio-economic aspect of a society, data mining applications essentially act as effective instruments for providing support to health care facilities, electronics-based commerce, supermarket purchases, stock trades, insurance claims conducted on-line, or measuring socio-economic pattern of a society. This way, a wealth of information can be amassed about not only on clients´ habits and their preferences, but also about the behavior pattern, purchase pattern, sales pattern, stock pattern and even profit forecast. However, practitioners often seek personal information not directly from the participants themselves, but from other collected sources, and this may lead to unreliability about the source with privacy protection, and raises ethical concern. Social and ethical matters are nowadays concerns to the society, of which people are the only elements. Furthermore, in the days of technology innovations, computers are being manipulated with programs to act more like people, and eventually several social and ethical matters come into focus related to computer programming, or artificial intelligence. Hence, learning about ethical issues on data mining applications is an important area of research interest.

Overall Objective of the Book
The ethical conduct of research is becoming an important element of modern scientific research. In these days, computer science and its technological remnants touch nearly every aspect of human life, and computer scientists must conduct and report their research in an ethical manner. The book will provide an overview on ethical issues in research for development of ICTs, and socio-economic development aspects. This book will also collate scientific developments with ethical issues, develop theories in relation to researches with ethical impediments, examine potential ethical dilemmas in this discipline, synthesize experimental cases to develop models as success cases and discuss how ethical concerns may be addressed to tackle these situations. Finally, the book looks to make an in-depth study on other areas of ethical concern and future development of a common acceptable code for ethical computer science research.

Target Audience
As an emerging subject, the target audiences are expected to be from the scientists, researchers, and practitioners working in the field of data mining, data warehousing, database management and information systems technologies. Furthermore, the audience will include among various stakeholders, like academics, research institutes, and individuals those are interested in this field, and most of all among the huge audience in the public sector comprising government agencies, ministries, education institutions, health service providers, financial service providers, social service providers and other types of government, commercial and not-for-profit agencies.

Recommended topics for chapters include, but are not limited to, the following:
primary data, methods and procedures to create compilations of accurate reporting with ethical issues;
primary data that are based on human observation to be treated for prompt recording and accurate presentation;
preservation of record for future use and intelligent decision making;
recording sufficient detail of data to preserve the record of factors that might turn out to be significant;
develop methods that minimizes doubt about the time of the occurrence or the time at which it was recorded;
data record that should be kept reasonably free from risk of damage or ethical concerns;
necessary research materials that should be made available to others who attempt to replicate similar research works;
creation, maintenance and preservation of large amount of data, content and record;
preserving the confidentiality of sensitive information about human subjects, if any, in the data record; and
preservation of research data for a reasonable number of years after the appearance of final reports or publications resulting from the research.
More broadly, topics may follow these issues:
- web-based publication and dissemination of data,
- development of natural language database search aids for the humanities,
- development of social science geographical information systems,
- data mining and social science data exploration and description,
- creation of an open source digital library system for quantitative data for easier dissemination,
- establishment of a federation of geographically distributed interoperable anthropology databases,
- establishment of a large international consortia of data sets supporting storage and dissemination of social science data, or
- establishment of localized databases as per local demand in local languages.
