Last decade has experienced a burgeoning growth of diversified social
software including social networking software like Facebook, LinkedIn, and
SecondLife. Smartphone interface such as IOS and android through iPhone and
various other brands brings new perspective on human computer interactions.
Users have been through completely new experience with computer interface
and information systems in mobile and social networking applications.
However, most enterprise systems such as ERP systems are still using the
legacy user interface which is complex to learn and hard to navigate. With
the fact that next generation growing up with the social media interface,
their views and attitudes on user interfaces of ERP systems will be
different from the current generation. Their interactions with the
enterprise systems with legacy interface will be challenging.

Big ERP provider such as SAP has already started their strategic plan to
shift toward this direction. SAP is implementing a social media strategy to
shift the perception of their ERP software from the company level to the
individual level. Their recent plan to acquire Syclo, a leading provider of
enterprise mobile applications and technologies, indicates their strategic
move the enterprise software to the social level.

Should the enterprise systems be changed to meet the emergent needs of next
generation? What's the relationship between the enterprise systems and user
experience? Many interesting issues should centre around interactions of
this new user experience based on social media software between the
experiences of enterprise systems with legacy interface.

This track aims at discussing various issues between user experiences and
enterprise systems. We welcome high quality papers on the topics of, but
not limited to, the following areas:

   - Interaction methods of Enterprise systems
   - Enterprise systems' manual or documentation
   - Ease of use of enterprise systems
   - User experience requirements analysis for enterprise systems
   - Influence of stakeholder's interest on their experience
   - The relationship between user experience and employee productivity of
   enterprise systems
   - Case study of user experience of enterprise systems
   - User interface analysis of existing enterprise systems such as ERP and
   BPM systems
   - Development issues of enterprise systems user interface
   - User interface design of enterprise systems based on user experience
   - Social media integration with enterprise systems
   - Graphical design of enterprise systems
   - Social experience of enterprise systems
   - Social identity in enterprise systems
   - Internal and external factors influencing user experience

All submissions will be evaluated for novelty, significance, and soundness.

possible practical implications of the study, and be fully referenced with
appropriate international citations.
