Thank you to all who participated in PACIS 2020. This marks the end of the second of three events in the first-ever AIS Virtual Conference Series. PACIS welcomed over 700 attendees who experienced the panels, keynote, and networking opportunities.
There were three successful panels in the PACIS 2020 schedule. The Technology in Global Education Panel was led by Doug Vogel, Maryam Alavi, Christian Wagner, Anne Rutkowski, and Dov Te’eni. The Meet the Editors Panel was led by Patrick Chau, James Jiang, Hans-Dieter Zimmermann, Arun Rai, Rajiv Kohli, Sajda Qureshi, and Robert Davidson. The AIS Closing Panel provided attendees with an overview of the resources available to AIS members as well as enabling them to ask questions of AIS leaders.
This year’s PACIS Keynote speaker was Elena Karahanna, a distinguished research professor and the L. Edmund Rast Professor of Business in the MIS Department, Terry College of Business, University of Georgia. Her Keynote session covered “Rethinking IS Research in the Pandemic and Post-Pandemic Era.” Watch the recorded Keynote Session here!
The PACIS Networking Café provided the attendees with the option to meet at virtual tables to discuss recent Tracks, share research, or catch up with their peers. Café attendees were able to hop from different tables and share their webcams to create face to face conversation!
