Call for Papers

We call for papers to be submitted to the 29th Australasian Conference on Information Systems (ACIS2018). ACIS is the premier conference in Australasia for Information Systems. In 2018, ACIS will be hosted by the Faculty of Engineering and Information Technology, University Technology Sydney (UTS), in Sydney, New South Wales, Australia. The event will take place at the UTS campus from the 3rd – 5th December 2018. UTS is located in the centre of Sydney close to the central train station and many highlights of Sydney including the iconic Sydney Opera House.

Conference Theme: Strategic Positioning

Within the current global context, resilience is a key driver for various facets of decision-making processes. Information systems have a critical role to facilitate such processes. Indeed, information system researchers have pioneered many of the conceptual tools that this vantage point of decision making demands. This thematic view of IS will offer IS researchers to position and present their efforts not only more cohesively but also will provide a platform to focus on the impact of IS research to solve ongoing societal challenges. These include a focus on organisational resilience and sustainability encompassing risk assessment, cyber threats mitigation, the role of big data, disaster management, and environmental modelling.

Come and join us at ACIS2018 where we will explore these issues through our tracks and plenary sessions.
