We are happy to announce that the research paper "Factors Influencing Perceived Legitimacy of Social Scoring Systems: Subjective Privacy Harms and the Moderating Role of Transparency" (Author Version) co-authored by Carmen Löfflad, Mo Chen and Jens Grossklags has been nominated for the Best Paper Award at the AIS 44th International Conference on Information Systems (ICIS 2023) to be held in Hyderabad, India. The paper will be presented in the track on IoT, Smart Cities, Services, and Government.

The paper reports on an experiment examining how transparency affects the perceived legitimacy of social scoring systems, as well as people’s intention to comply with such systems. It shows that transparency weakens the importance of outcome favorability in determining perceived legitimacy and compliance intentions. However, transparency also elevates subjective privacy harms, which weakens people’s intention to comply.
