AIS is excited to announce a Memorandum of Understanding with the UN International Telecommunications Union during ICIS 2015 in Fort Worth, Texas. AIS and ITU will formally collaborate on research and implementation on the Bright Internet for Trust Information Infrastructure. Director Chaesub Lee of ITU will present their collaboration plan during the plenary session in ICIS 2015.
In Dec. 2014, AIS Council adopted the Grand Vision Project of Bright ICT. The Concept of Bright ICT is explained in the MISQ Editorial Article on “Research Framework of the Bright ICT Initiative (June 2015)”.
Since the adoption, many activities have taken place to progress the Bright ICT initiative, including conference panels and research projects. ICIS 2015 will also feature Bright ICT Workshops and Panels.
A special issue of JAIS is calling for papers and a delphi study to identify the topics of Bright ICT underway. Further information is available at http://aisnet.org/?page=BrightICT. If you would like to participate, please contact AIS President, Jae Kyu Lee.
