Although the study of the adoption and diffusion of information and
communication technologies (ICT) is one of the more mature research
areas within the IS discipline, much of the activity to date has
focused upon conducting investigations from organizational and/or
end-user/employee perspectives. While the key role of ICT within
business and government is now well-recognized, it is also important
to acknowledge that in modern society, ICT has become prevalent in the
daily home lives of many individuals in forms such as e-commerce,
e-government, e-learning, e-health, and e-working. This relatively
recent emergence of the technology-contextualized home environment has
in turn, generated numerous issues worthy of investigation, including
awareness, adoption and usage of emerging technologies and electronic
services, and social exclusion due to unequal adoption by different
segments of society. However, given the broad range of issues offering
potentially fruitful areas for investigation, and the varying
approaches that may be employed to explore them, it is sometimes
unclear where to place such material. Therefore, the objective of this
mini-track is to provide a platform for the presentation and
discussion of original research into emerging issues surrounding ICT
adoption (and non-adoption) from the residential/household
perspectives of consumers and citizens.

The mini-track will focus on:

Micro factors influencing ICT adoption and usage within the household
Socio-economic/geographical/cultural factors relevant to household
adoption of ICT
Citizens' awareness of emerging electronic government and other online services
The digital divide
Provision of ICT in public places for citizens from lower
socio-economic backgrounds
Strategies of high-speed internet access providers and ISPs to
household consumers in different countries
Government policies toward adoption and diffusion of ICT, including
e-government services and high-speed Internet access for household
Service quality and Security issues
The impact of consumers home use of ICT on business models in various
The impact ICT use on the daily/social/professional life of consumers/citizens
Socio-economic impacts of consumer adoption of ICT
ICT training for citizens
