AIS Response to Coronavirus:
The show will go on. AIS has decided AMCIS and ICIS will be held as scheduled in August and December. We don’t know the exact form of the conferences yet, whether they will be a regular in-person conference, a blended conference with both in-person and remote participation, or an entirely online conference. AIS will continue to provide high-quality conference experiences to you, but we will always put the safety of our members first. We are aware that many of you are currently facing travel restrictions, and some of you may simply be wary of the current health risks associated with travel. We are monitoring these situations.
We will make an announcement on the form of AMCIS on May 1, and conference registration will open shortly after that.
The AMCIS program committee is working hard on reviewing and selecting papers. The ICIS program committee will start its work as scheduled in May (so please submit your papers!).
We will continue to provide additional information as it becomes available.
Thanks to all our members and volunteers for your support and hard work,
Making Digital Inclusive: Blending the Local and the Global
Digital inclusion is the idea that all stakeholders should have equal opportunities to participate in and benefit from digitization initiatives and related innovations. Grassroots digital innovations can potentially lead to the development of global solutions, and mass global technology solutions can be creatively localized. Digital inclusion is fundamental in a world in which only 56% of its inhabitants have access to the Internet.
