ACIS2018 - Strategic Positioning

ACIS2018 Conference Theme 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.
