ACIS 2013 26 de julho, 2013 – 24th Australasian Conference on Information Systems

24th Australasian Conference on Information Systems

The Australasian Conference on Information Systems (ACIS) is the premier conference in Australasia for Information Systems academics and professionals, covering technical, organizational, business, and social issues in the
application of Information Technology. In 2013, the ACIS Conference will be hosted by the School of Business Information Technology and Logistics at RMIT University. The event will take place at the City Campus of the University in the new Swanston Academic Building from 4-6 December, 2013. The Swanston Academic Building is located right in the middle of Melbourne’s CBD.

Conference Theme: Information Systems: Transforming the Future

Information systems is a discipline that is built on the foundations of other disciplines bringing together information technology, management, business, sociology, cognitive science and a host of elements from elsewhere. This gives it the breadth of knowledge and capabilities to place it on the leading edge of the many transformations of the future that the 21st century has already started to see. Three areas in which these transformations will be of particular interest and relevance are:

Transforming Business
Despite change in the business world being driven by information technology since the 60s, it seems inevitable that business will be transformed dramatically over the next generation by the use of information technology. The information systems discipline is strategically placed to be a leader in that transformation.

Transforming Education
Information systems academics have been leading the way in the use of the Web and social media for the last 20 years and with the advent of the Massive Open Online Courses (MOOC), information systems academics can continue to be at the forefront of using information systems in tertiary education.

Transforming the Discipline
Information systems academics are not immune to the need to transform the future. The discipline needs to adopt the process and the pace of social media and move to be on the Internet time as opposed to the traditionally scholarly time and use the capabilities provided by the Internet to extend and develop the discipline as a community.
