Special Session on Electronic Identification Systems and Users' Trust & Privacy Issues


Caroline Miltgen
Associate Professor in Management
ISSBA – University of Angers
16 boulevard Daviers
49045 Angers Cedex, France

Session Description:

Modern society increasingly relies on Internet, mobile phones and interconnected computerized systems which require establishing the identity of a user to function. Technically, the process of identification / authentication provides a basic level of protection against unauthorized access to services. But, it is well-known that the implementation of electronic identification systems (such as electronic signature, token, biometrics or RFID) is to some extent hampered by users' mistrust in such technologies. Users have concerns over information systems security vulnerabilities (security concerns) and over the use of their personal data (privacy concerns).

As for now, very few studies have tried to evaluate consumer awareness and perceptions about electronic identification (eID) systems as well as their intent to adopt them. We more particularly need insight into web users’ privacy concerns as well as their protection needs and the corresponding adopted measures with regards to electronic identification systems.

Submit your research papers and studies regarding these innovative technologies, their benefits and drawbacks for individuals, more particularly concerning privacy.  Papers on conceptual frameworks and empirical studies on people awareness and perceptions about electronic identification will be key highlights.

Papers will be evaluated for originality, significance, clarity, and contribution.  It is IBIMA policy to send complete papers to two reviewers for full blind peer review and to send a summary of review back to the author(s) .   Short papers/abstracts will be reviewed by reviewer and/or the editor.  All review comments and suggestions should be addressed in the final submission.  Submitted Papers must not have been previously published or currently submitted for publication elsewhere.

Conference proceedings will be published as an e-book on a CD (ISBN: 978-0-9821489-0-7) and will be published on the "Communications of the IBIMA" Journal

Indicate the session name on your manuscript.  All Submissions should be sent to only one e-mail: either  Cairo2009@ibima.org or the session chair at  caroline.miltgen@orange.fr
