Ancillary Meeting

Organizing Ancillary Meetings and Workshops

As part of the 2021 Americas Conference on Information Systems (AMCIS), the Association for Information Systems (AIS) is seeking participation by all Information Systems organizations to conduct a virtual ancillary meeting in conjunction with AMCIS.

Registration will open soon for all SIG/Ancillary/Pre/Post conference virtual meeting requests.

REMINDER: All workshops should be submitted as workshops.

Workshops are typically half- or full-day sessions that facilitate discussion and exploration of ideas, techniques, and methodologies that advance research, teaching knowledge of IS-related concepts, or products from industry and their application to academia, educational curricula, or industry practice.

Please visit the OAM site for additional details and to submit your request.
