As you know, the International Conference on Information Systems is the premier IS conference offered to those in our field. The ICIS 2020 registration rate includes top tier research presentations, panel discussions on research and teaching best practice principles, tools and techniques, and workshops on cutting-edge theory and practice. In addition, ICIS brings together more than 1,500 IS researchers from around the globe, which allows for networking opportunities to remain engaged with peers and fellow researchers.
Research sessions, keynotes, panels and workshops offered at ICIS are directly applicable to the work of researchers and these many career-advancing opportunities provide value well beyond the three day conference. With a fully virtual event, the only cost you incur is the cost of registration, rather than hotel, travel and food costs that are normally associated with conferences. We hope that attendees will be able to take advantage of the savings and focus on the benefits provided by attending the conference to expand their knowledge and prepare for the future of IS.
While the costs for attendees is greatly reduced with the lack of travel, hotel and food, the costs incurred by the association still exists. Platform licenses and staff hours are just two examples of what it takes to put on a prestigious and professional conference like ICIS. AIS does try to offset these costs with the hundreds of unpaid volunteer hours that are worked to make ICIS possible.
Please note that AIS understands the financial position many universities, and individuals, find themselves in during the global pandemic. In keeping that in mind, a number of scholarship opportunities will be made available when registration opens. Please stay tuned to learn more about these opportunities.
