The ICIS 2014 Conference Committee and the Association for Information Systems are pleased to invite scholars to participate in the thirty-firth annual International Conference on Information Systems (ICIS 2014) to be held in Auckland, New Zealand from December 14, 2014 to December 17, 2014.

The ICIS 2014 Program Committee invites submissions across 21 tracks, including our theme track "Building a Better World through Information Systems."  The theme of the conference provides an opportunity for us to think more deeply about how information systems can contribute to building a better world through supporting humanitarian efforts, advancing food production and distribution, enabling better and more affordable access to healthcare and education, optimizing energy production and consumption systems, facilitating citizen participation in government, connecting diaspora, among other positive actions to make the world a better place.

The venue of ICIS 2014, Auckland, is one of the great cities of the South Pacific, where stunning natural beauty and big city style meet. Home to 1.5 million people, the city has modern shopping areas plus many excellent cafes and restaurants. It is surrounded by two natural harbors, native forests, dormant volcanoes and beautiful beaches. It is regularly voted one of the best cities in the world to live. And of course, ICIS will be held in December - the start of summer in the southern hemisphere!

Please note the following:

1. The conference website at http://icis2014.aisnet.org/contains the track descriptions, deadlines, and submission guidelines.

2. The deadline for submissions is Saturday, May 3, 2014, 11:59 pm Auckland time (equivalent to May 2, 2014 at 8 PM, EDT). This is a firm deadline and no extensions will be allowed.

3. All submissions must be made through the online submission system at http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/icis2014.

Authors need to create an account on the submission system (see tab in the upper right corner) before they can upload their papers. A submission can be made to only one Track and the posted submission guidelines, at http://icis2014.aisnet.org/index.php/submissions/paper-submission must be followed.

4.  Acceptance/rejection decisions will be made by Wednesday, July 30, 2014.

We look forward to seeing you in Auckland for ICIS 2014!
