AMCIS, a preeminent information systems research conference, conducted under the auspices of the Association for Information Systems (AIS), attracts 1000 or more attendees from North America, as well as other regions of the world. The conference program includes research paper presentations, panel discussions, keynotes, doctoral student consortium, and a camp for early-stage IS faculty. This year’s theme, A Tradition of Innovation, reflects the program chairs’ desire to highlight IS studies that build on previously-reported research and IS studies that take innovative new methodological or theoretical directions and address emerging technology challenges to strengthen or extend existing theories and propose new theories.

Boston exemplifies A Tradition of Innovation. AMCIS participants can retrace the steps of the historic Freedom Trail and visit hubs of research-driven innovation at nearby universities, where they will feel the buzz of entrepreneurial energy that powers the Boston-area economy.

We don’t yet know who our keynote speaker will be but she/he will certainly give a riveting speech that will inspire us to greater heights of innovative IS research…

The Sheraton Boston Hotel is located just a short walk from the shops, restaurants, bars and historic sites of Copley Square, as well as the Museum of Fine Arts and Fenway Park.

Boston is a compact city; you can see everything on foot, but the T is also easy to use to get everywhere in Boston and Cambridge.

We hope you will join us in Boston for a wicked good AMCIS 2017!

It will be here before we know it!
