AIS Conferences: ICIS and AMCIS Dates Remain Unchanged

Over the past few years, AIS has had several task forces review the AIS conference portfolio. These task forces created a detailed analysis of different options for having AIS conferences distributed over the calendar year. Last week, after careful deliberation of the recommendations of the task forces and ICIS Executive Committee, AIS Council decided to have AMCIS remain in August and the global flagship conference, ICIS, remain in December.
AIS has recently added ECIS and PACIS as regional affiliated conferences and with AMCIS they comprise a set of global regional conferences that enable our members to meet colleagues within their region and present their work without extensive travel. The conferences are distributed so ECIS is held in June, PACIS in July, and AMCIS in August. This makes it possible for those eager to publish and meet in these months. To continue this balanced model, ICIS will remain in December and rotate around the regions so that members have a second opportunity to exchange their ideas, network and more.
We thank all the members for their input throughout the review process and we recommend members attend a variety of AIS conferences as they each offer different services, research needs and possibilities. We also remind members to explore the many smaller specialized conferences affiliated with AIS that offer cost-effective ways to participate in the scientific dialogue.
