Community, Organisational and Social Informatics

Community, Organisational and Social Informatics (COSI)

Understanding the impact of information and communication technologies (ICT) on the development of individuals, organisations and society is critical to ensuring that technologies continue to play a positive role in our communities.

Our research contributes to the development of individuals, organisations, and society through research on human-centred design and deployment of information and communication technologies (ICT). COSI focuses on understanding the people and organisational dimensions, the complexities and needs of the social networks that ICT serves, in order to optimise its social, cultural and economic benefits.

COSI brings together researchers who work in knowledge management, information technology management, information systems development, archival systems, e-commerce and m-commerce, community networking, librarianship, and computing education. It provides a focus for interdisciplinary collaboration with national and international researchers, industry and community research partners and other stakeholders.
