The International Conference on Information Systems

The International Conference on Information Systems (ICIS) is the most prestigious gathering of information systems academics and research-oriented practitioners in the world. Every year its 270 or so papers and panel presentations are selected from over 800 submissions. The conference activities are primarily delivered by and for academics, though many of the papers and panels have a strong professional orientation.

ICIS was founded in 1980 at UCLA and the first conference was held at the University of Pennsylvania as the " Conference on Information Systems". By 1986, particularly as the result of Canadian and European attendance and participation, " International" was appended to the name, thereby creating the International Conference on Information Systems. ICIS became truly international in 1990 when the conference was first held outside North America in Copenhagen, Denmark.
