AIS SIGED: IAIM will hold its annual International Conference on Informatics

The AIS Special Interest Group for Education:  International Academy for

SIGED is to provide a forum in which interdisciplinary researchers and
educators in information systems can exchange ideas, techniques, and
applications. SIGED sponsors an international conference in December at
which competitively selected peer-reviewed papers, tutorials and panel
discussions are presented. A Best Paper Award is selected and announced in
the conference. 

All papers accepted after a double-blind peer review process will be
published in the conference proceedings CD-ROM. Other papers, extended
abstracts, panel discussions and tutorials will also be published in the
on-line proceedings. Authors of accepted papers will have the opportunity to
make revisions prior to submitting a final version. Best papers will be
fast-tracked for possible publication in the Journal of Information Systems
Education (JISE).
