The 20th Pacific Asia Conference on Information Systems is the recipient of the 2016 Taiwan MICE Award in recognition of the record-breaking conference held in Chiayi, Taiwan from June 27 to July 1, 2016.
PACIS, the premier conference on information systems in the Pacific Asia Region, aims to present and discuss current research issues related to information systems and did so exceptionally well this year. The theme for PACIS 2016 was “IT Governance for Future Society,” to highlight the increasing importance of information technology and information systems as it relates to enterprise governance. The conference, hosted by College of Management, National Chung Cheng University, provided a high quality program for its participants that included keynote speakers, research paper presentations, and panels, preceded by several workshops and the doctoral consortium.
The event is awarded by Meet Taiwan for its success and contribution to Taiwan’s economic development and competitiveness within the meetings, incentives, conferences and exhibitions industry. The Taiwan MICE Awards were established to encourage MICE organizers to be innovative, improve service quality, and implement environmental principles as exemplary models within the industry.
No stranger to success, PACIS has broken records and surpassed expectations year after year. This year, PACIS received 741 paper submissions from more than 1,900 authors in 49 countries, a 15 percent increase from the submissions received in 2015. These numbers reflect a significant growing trend in the IS community within the Asia Pacific region.
PACIS is the newest regional conference endorsed by the AIS Council and governed by the AIS Region 3 Board. It offers a great opportunity for researchers and practitioners to exchange research findings on the latest developments in the IS field, and to foster regional and international collaboration in the community.
