IEEE WIE Seminar: The Art of Transdisciplinary Research in the Information Systems and Technology Disciplines: Reflections from the Field
July 1 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am
In this seminar Katina Michael (Arizona State University) and Roba Abbas (University of Wollongong, Australia) will present research that they have jointly been engaged in since 2005 with respect to public sector information systems and emerging technology. Katina and Roba will begin by defining interdisciplinarity and transdisciplinary research, and then offer our own unique perspective on the potential for transdisciplinarity in a complex socio-technical ecosystem. They will reference some of their early work on public sector information availability, followed by research on the topic of location-based services with respect to both regulation and emergency management (e.g. pandemic outbreaks). They will then highlight the outcome of this work through the demonstration of a theoretically and methodologically grounded process that can be applied to emerging technologies such as artificial intelligence, robotics, and the Internet of Things. They will extend the discussion to aspects relating to long-term collaboration across a range of projects, emphasizing the virtual and cross-institutional contexts, and the role of IEEE through the editing and publication process.

This seminar series plans to highlight the Extraordinary Science performed in IEEE Societies and Councils by Extraordinary Women. Each Society and Council will be asked to select a “champion” to present her work throughout the year. The series wishes to encourage attendees to participate in this highly interdisciplinary event and hopes to be a seminal moment of inspiration for women, girls, and young researchers interested in STEM.
