AIS Response to Coronavirus

For last two years, the New England Association for Information Systems Chapter (NEAIS) has gathered academics in the field of Information Systems together to present a broad variety of research and teaching topics.  This year, due to the inability to accurately assess the potential reach of the Coronavirus, the desire to protect the health and safety of our members, and the potential consequences of bringing together a large group of people in confined space, we have decided to postpone our NEAIS Annual Conference from this year to May, 2021 (specific date & location will be announced in early January, 2021).  Please refer to the NEAIS website for updates and important information: https://communities.aisnet.org/newenglandusachapter.


We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this decision might cause. However, based on today's COVID-19 situation, we feel it is best to postpone now instead of waiting.  We are excited to continue with NEAIS 2021 and harness the spirit of our 2020 conference theme

All accepted papers will be reviewed and acknowledged by the NEAIS Program Committee. We appreciate the continued support of our members and hope you can join us next year to collaborate, share research, discuss best practices and more.

Sincerely,

NEAIS Board
NEAIS 2020 Conference Committee
NEAIS  2020 Program Committee


Southern Chapter of AIS, March 2020 - Postponed.

With the inability to accurately assess the potential reach of the virus, the organizers' desire is to protect the health and safety of our members and our communities. Therefore, SAIS has made the tough decision to postpone the 2020 conference to September 11 - 12, 2020. The conference will still be hosted at the Marina Inn at Grande Dunes in Myrtle Beach, SC just six months later. The Marina Inn has moved the block of rooms for us already. Please contact the hotel directly to verify and/or change your reservation. 

Conference organizers sincerely apologize for any travel problems or inconvenience this decision might cause. However, based on today's COVID-19 report it is best to postpone now instead of waiting another week to see what happens. If you cannot make the conference in September, please let us know. Conference organizers will do what we can to assist with a refund through AIS.
