Doctoral Student Corner

About the Doctoral Student Corner

The AIS Doctoral Student College will host several virtual events as part of this year’s ICIS Doctoral Student Corner. We have developed these events to help doctoral students make the most of the conference by providing opportunities to gain advice from experienced faculty and to build relationships with others in our field.

We invite doctoral students at all levels to register for these free ancillary events when registering for ICIS 2020. If you have already registered for the conference but forgot to include the ancillary events, you are still welcome to participate.

We will give away several Amazon gift cards during each of our events!
