Information Systems These contributions concern the concetualization of Information Systems (IS) from the activity modality perspective. The main message here is that the definition of IS needs to depart from the individual user. Thus, the IS is seen as a dialectical relation between an IT-artefact and the individual user. In principle, this mmeans that there will be as many ISs as there are users of the IT-artefact. Another consequence is that the IS is uniquely defined for each user.
