Date: June 12, 2017, 09.00 – 17.00
This course is a pre-event of the Gmunden Retreat on NeuroIS 2017; the retreat starts with a reception and dinner in the evening of June 12.
Theme: Getting Started with NeuroIS: Choosing Tools, Methodologies, and Theories
Format: The NeuroIS.org Training Course 2017 is designed to give participants a basic foundation in major concepts, methods, and tools related to NeuroIS research. This course is specifically designed to collaborate in actively developing NeuroIS research strategies for early-stage research ideas of interest to the participants. Participants are asked to submit research ideas in advance, and to come prepared to briefly present and discuss their ideas in a workshop atmosphere. The tutors – Prof. Fred D. Davis (Texas Tech University, USA), Pierre-Majorique Léger (HEC Montréal, Canada), and René Riedl (University of Applied Sciences Upper Austria and University of Linz, Austria) – will provide feedback and suggestions based on the nature of the research ideas. Participation should provide value for IS, computer science, and management PhD students and faculty. There are no specific prerequisites for participation. English is the course language.
The course uses an interactice teaching approach, and it covers fundamental themes, including the following questions: Why do we need NeuroIS? How to conduct NeuroIS studies? What constitutes a good NeuroIS contribution? The course takes a beginner rather than an expert approach to the material presented, and it is mainly based on a recent book: Riedl, R. & Léger, P.-M.: Fundamentals of NeuroIS: Information Systems and the Brain. Springer, 2016.
Certificate: Attendees receive a certificate of participation.
