Announcing the AIS 2020 Virtual Conference Series

We are pleased to announce the AIS summer of conferences (or the winter of conferences for our members in the Southern Hemisphere). At a time when community is more important than ever, our Virtual Conference Series will be a great opportunity to engage with colleagues from around the globe.

ECIS 2020, PACIS 2020 and AMCIS 2020 have joined together to offer all three conferences as one package. Each conference offers its own distinctive style and content that reflects our diverse global association, so this combined registration offers the opportunity to experience that diversity first hand.

Registration is free to all doctoral student members! Registration is also free to all members from Low, Medium, and High Human Development countries (see here). Academic, professional, retired and institutional AIS members from Very High Human Development countries will pay a $50 USD registration fee for the package which includes all three conferences.

The conferences will be held online during their originally scheduled dates and offer both live synchronous sessions and always available asynchronous sessions. The live sessions will be held in a range of times that fit the time zone of the host region. What would summer conference season be without jetlag—virtual jetlag in this case?

The registration website will open soon and we will provide more information by May 7. As always, conference registration is required of all authors and presenters, even if it is free.

The registration fee includes all three conferences, so we encourage you to attend all three. If you do not normally attend all three summer conferences, this is your opportunity to experience the great regional diversity that our community has to offer.

We encourage you to renew your membership (if needed) and register by June 1, so you have the opportunity to start the season by attending ECIS. PACIS will follow the next week. AMCIS will be held the week of August 10. We encourage you to attend all three conferences even if you don’t have a paper.

We look forward to welcoming you at one—or all of our conferences.
