From the 10th to 13th of December 2017, the International Conference on Information Systems (ICIS) took place in Seoul (South Korea). This annual event is the most prestigous conference for information systems scholars and the largest conference that is being organized by the Association for Information Systems (AIS). Each year, the event takes place in one of three regions: (1) Americas, (2) Europe, Africa and the Middle East, (3) Asia and Pacific; hence, moving on to region 1, ICIS will take place in San Francisco in 2018. This year, more than 1,300 participants from all around the globe presented more than 400 submissions that were in centered around the conference’s theme “Transforming Society with Digital Innovation“.
From the 12th to 14th of June 2017, the Gmunden Retreat on NeuroIS again took place in Schloss Ort in Gmunden with more than 40 participants from Europe and North America.
The event started with a training course where participants could present their research ideas and then get feedback by senior scholars of the field. As known and valued by recurring participants of the conference, everyone then had a chance to get to know each other during a welcome dinner at Seehotel Schwan before the actual conference kicked off with paper presentations in the morning.
