Brief Bio
Monique Janneck is a professor for Human-Computer Interaction in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at Luebeck University of Applied Sciences, Germany. She graduated in Psychology and earned a doctorate in Informatics with a thesis on the design of cooperative systems from a communication psychology perspective. Her research focus is on the interplay between human behavior, social structures and technological development: She is interested in the way humans interact with technology, the way theories and findings on human behavior can inform the design of informationtechnology, and the way technology impacts individual, organizational, and social behavior and structures. A special focus is placed on web-based systems and Social Media.


Information technology is deeply interwoven with personal, social, and organizational developments: Technology changes work routines as well as personal habits or communication between people or groups, has an impact on political decisions and legislation, enables new forms of business and customer relations and so forth. The aim of this special session is to shed more light on the dynamic interplay between technological and social systems, especially regarding innovative web-based systems and technologies. Papers with a technological focus (e.g. dealing with innovative web technologies ors systems and their potential socio-technical impact) or a social / organizational focus (e.g. case studies on the impact of technology in a certain context) are equally welcome. Especially interdisciplinary research is desirable.
