IACIS 2017 - 57th International Conference

October 4-7, 2017, The Courtyard Philadelphia Downtown Marriott

Philadelphia, PA

IACIS 2017 Conference Theme: Higher Education 3.0: Educating Generation Next

Education 3.0 changes the learning field for higher education. Today, learners are highly self-directed and use technology in every aspect of their lives to acquire, manage, create, and share knowledge. This affords higher education institutions opportunities to create new ways to make education relevant for learners and the organizations that hire them. This year, we will explore innovations in Information Systems' policy, leadership, and educational practices to harness learners' ability to connect, create, and construct knowledge and skills for the workplace of today and tomorrow.

The IACIS 2017 International Conference provides a showcase for the latest research in practice and pedagogical topics that focus on how information systems are used to support organizations or enhance the educational process. You are invited to share your research on the conference theme or other relevant IS and IT research with the educators and professionals attending the IACIS 2017 International Conference. Papers covering related academic and technical issues are also encouraged.
