Conference Website

The Undergraduate Conference in Information Systems (UCIS) is designed as a forum for undergraduate students with an interest in Information Systems to present their work and engage in relevant discussions with peers, faculty and experts in the field from around the world. This conference is a chapter conference of the Association for Information Systems (AIS) and is hosted by Carnegie Mellon University, which is well known for its vibrant research environment.

Submissions in line with the conference theme, "Information Communication Technologies (ICT) in the Enterprise and Beyond,” are encouraged. Over the past several years, innovations in information and communication technology (ICT) have changed the way we do business, interact and communicate (both professionally and socially), engage in commerce, and receive government services. The field of ICT has been promising to revolutionize our lives in both small and large ways. Although some big promises have been fulfilled, the impact of these ICT solutions needs to be examined and evaluated. Why were some solutions successful and others were not? How can solutions be improved? Why have some of the other promised changes not materialized? What are current issues and concerns with ICT locally, regionally, and globally? The hope is that this forum can be used to discuss the promises and capabilities of ICT and how it can be used to improve organizations, while also considering its possible negative impacts and failures. Ultimately, as future leaders, we all seek to understand what can be done to both create awareness of and to improve the use and implementation of ICT around the world.
