* BITWorld 2014 *

*** 16th International Conference on Business Information Technology ***

May 21-23, 2014, LAS VEGAS, USA



The year was 1997 and a bunch of colleagues had gotten together in the CSA Bar at Cranfield University, UK. The game of darts was in full swing. An idea popped - how interesting would it be to organize a Business Information Technology conference at a location where traditionally such conferences never venture to be. Very quickly New Delhi as a location was suggested. An email was sent to Professor Gordon Davis at the University of Minnesota to be the inaugural keynote speaker. And without much ado, we had an event at our hands. Professor Rekha Jain of Indian Institute of Management, Ahmedabad became the local organizing chair.

In years to come the conference grew from strength to strength and events were organized in South Africa, Egypt, Ecuador, Mexico among other places. For the past few years though, BITWorld was co-hosted with CITED in Nigeria, CoDE in Thailand and China and CISTM in India. The next event is being decoupled from the co-hosts and will take place in Las Vegas, Nevada on the 21-23 May 2014. We look forward to carrying forward a rich tradition of BITWorld events in 2014 and beyond. BITWorld includes a full program of papers, presentations, keynotes and publishing events, and aspires to bring together academics, researchers and practitioners from all over the world to engage in dialogue and exchange ideas on the latest developments and challenges in Information Technology.
