The AIS Special Interest Group on Systems Analysis and Design (SIGSAND) has the objective of promoting and developing high quality research and teaching on all issues related to systems analysis and design. Systems analysis is about analyzing business problems and opportunities and identifying possible solutions, whereas systems design is specifying how an identified solution can be implemented, specifically as it involves information technology.

The combined field of Systems Analysis and Design (SAND) deals with all issues related to the development of systems and as such is of central importance to the Information Systems discipline.   The group hosts an annual symposium on research to promote and develop high quality research on all issues related to SAND. This year, the symposium will be hosted by the Operations, Business Analytics & Information Systems department at the Lindner College of Business at the University of Cincinnati on May 19-20, 2017. The symposium is intended to be a forum for scholars, practitioners, and doctoral students interested in SAND to exchange ideas and encourage collaboration. The developmental nature of the symposium encourages, but is not limited to, research in progress.

SIGSAND promotes the participation and presentation of PhD students at annual symposiums. This year’s symposium will grant three US$400 travel awards to doctoral students who are lead authors of accepted papers to attend and present their work at the symposium held on May 19-20 in Cincinnati, Ohio USA.

SIGSAND has established a special committee charged to select the top three doctoral student papers and issue the awards. Instructions for submitting a manuscript and applying for the award will be available on the web at Please see key dates for the symposium below.
