Ancillary Meeting Planning
As part of the 2022 Americas Conference on Information Systems (AMCIS), the Association for Information Systems (AIS) is seeking participation by all Information Systems organizations to conduct an ancillary meeting at AMCIS.
Registration is now open for all SIG/Ancillary/Pre/Post conference meeting event requests.
Should you require assistance or have questions during this process, contact Natalia Hurd at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Reminder all workshops should be submitted as workshops.
Workshops Co-Chairs (Amcisworkshop@gmail.com):
- Lakshmi Iyer
- Nerur Sridhar
- Mochen Yang
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.
Key Benefits to using the OAM Site to plan your ancillary event:
- SIG and Ancillary events arranged through the OAM receive the best available audio/visual and food & beverage rates.
- Your event attendees will have the convenience to book during the AMCIS registration process, or to add your event to their itineraries after registration.
- Hotel management – Ancillary event organizers can opt to take advantage of AIS’ meeting planning services to negotiate on your behalf to plan your event exactly how you want.
