Nowadays, smartphones have become a portable multimedia computer because of a variety of useful applications in our daily lives, which can be downloaded and installed easily in smartphones. Despite of the fact that, however in the IS literature there has been little research on smartphone applications' user interface design. Specifically, there has been little understanding about smartphone users' cognitive functions as a mediating variable in the relationship between the user interface design of smartphone applications and users' work performance with the applications. Thus, the research aims of this study are to examine 1) the effects of the user interface design attributes including simplicity, consistency, and metaphor on the compliance with or the extension of users' mental models representing users' cognitive functions, and 2) the effects of the users' cognitive functions on their work performance with the applications. A survey was conducted and Structural Equation Modeling(SEM) was employed to analyze the data. The results of this study showed that two of the user interface design attributes, simplicity and consistency, strongly affected users' cognitive functions. In addition, users' cognitive functions significantly influenced users' work performance. However, there was no relationship between the metaphors in the user interfaces of smartphone applications and the compliance with users' mental model. This study contributed theoretically not only to explore users' mental models that are rarely investigated in the IS field, but also to add some findings related to users' cognitive functions to the IS literature. This study also can help practitioners to develop more user friendly user interfaces of smartphone applications by suggesting the design attributes, such as simplicity, consistency, and metaphor.

As the use of smartphone has rapidly spread into the current society, the mobile instant messenger applications such as Kakaotalk, Tiktok, and Line have become an indispensable part of our daily lives. While, the mobile instant messenger has brought us many positive changes, social problems stemming from the dependency on the mobile instant messenger has been occurred. The dependency of the mobile instant messenger can negatively affect daily lives and lead to stress or addiction. Therefore, it is very important to examine how we can prevent such dependency and addiction. In this respect, the purpose of this study is to investigate determinants impacting on the mobile instant messenger dependency, barrier of living, and intention to digital break. The statistical analysis of survey results shows that enjoyment, identity, relationship commitment, critical mass and ease of use are significantly related to mobile instant messenger dependency, while media richness is not significantly related. Mobile instant messenger dependency have a positive effect on barrier of living, which then has a positive effect on digital break. Lastly, the moderating effect of perceived risk is significant. This research suggests theoretical and business implications to prevent mobile instant messenger dependency.

The purpose of the present study is to verify the structural relationship among system quality, information quality, service quality, perceived ease of use, perceived usefulness, satisfaction, intention on continuous use of mobile learning in cyber university. For this study, W cyber university in Korea was chosen to conduct web survey. The subjects were 283 students who participated in W's cyber university courses. A hypothetical model was composed of system quality, information quality, service quality, perceived ease of use and perceived usefulness as exogenous variables, satisfaction and intention on continuous use of mobile learning as endogenous variables. The result of this study through structural equation modeling analysis is as follows: First, information quality only affect satisfaction, Second, perceived ease of use, perceived usefulness and satisfaction significantly affect intention on continuous use of mobile learning. These results imply that information quality should be considered for the design and development of mobile learning contents. Also, perceived ease of use, perceived usefulness and satisfaction is important to enhance intention on continuous use of mobile learning. This study proposes strategies for successful mobile learning in cyber university.

Internet has begun various transformation and innovation in terms of society, culture and industry. Today, Social Network Service(SNS) is an exceedingly popular and useful tool for making human relationships. Previous studies related to SNS, which based on Technology Acceptance Model(TAM), were focused on user acceptance of new technology. However, they had the limitations to focus on technology acceptance, without the consideration of the cognitive factors in using SNS. This study examined how the main factors of intention to use of SNS continuously affect perceived usefulness and ease of use through familiarity, self-expression, hedonic shopping value, utilitarian shopping value and personal relationship. The results of hypothesis testing showed that familiarity, self-expression, hedonic shopping value and personal relationship have some positive impacts on the perceived usefulness and ease of use. The practical contribution of this study is to suggest useful decision alternatives concerned to marketing strategies for acquiring and retaining long-term customers related to SNS business.

Internet environment and innovative ICT(information and communication technology) have brought about big changes to our lifestyle and industrial structure. In spite of the convenience of Internet, various cyber incidents such as malicious code infection, personal information leakage, smishing(sms + phishing), and pharming have frequently occurred. Information security must be recognized as a key and compulsory element for surviving in a global economy. Strategic roles of information security have recently been increasing, but effective implementation of information security is still a major challenge to organizations. Our study examines the influencing factors of information security and investigates the causal relationship between information security maturity level and organizational performance through an empirical survey. According to the results of our study, personal, organizational, technical, and social factors affect organizations's information security maturity level altogether. This result suggests that when dealing with security issues, the holistic and multi-disciplinary approaches should be required. In addition, there is a causal relationship between information security maturity level and organizational performance, and organizations aim to establish the efficient and effective ways to enhance information security maturity level on the basis of the results of this study.
A Study on Plagiarism Detection and Document Classification Using Association Analysis
Hwang, Insoo ;

Plagiarism occurs when the content is copied without permission or citation, and the problem of plagiarism has rapidly increased because of the digital era of resources available on the World Wide Web. An important task in plagiarism detection is measuring and determining similar text portions between a given pair of documents. One of the main difficulties of this task is that not all similar text fragments are examples of plagiarism, since thematic coincidences also tend to produce portions of similar text. In order to handle this problem, this paper proposed association analysis in data mining to detect plagiarism. This method is able to detect common actions performed by plagiarists such as word deletion, insertion and transposition, allowing to obtain plausible portions of plagiarized text. Experimental results employing an unsupervised document classification strategy showed that the proposed method outperformed traditionally used approaches.

This study draws on status quo bias theoretic perspective as a meta-theoretic lens to explain why individuals have resists to adopt smart devices for their tasks. More specifically, we attempted to examine the relationships among user's resist, perceived usefulness and individual productivity in the smart work context. By employing the status quo bias theoretic perspective, we develop and test our research model by using a survey data from 235 individual users. We demonstrate that satisfaction on the current state influence users' resist, and also the users' resist is mediated by perceived usefulness on individual productivity. From the status quo bias view, this study presents an alternative meta-theoretical lens in order to understand individuals' resist in the smartwork context.
