11th Annual Midwest Association for Information Systems Conference
Milwaukee, WI
May 19-20, 2016

Conference theme: Bigger, Smarter, Safer: Game Changers for Information Systems

Organizations face a convergence of game changing technologies: big data, ubiquitous sensors and actuators combined with advanced analytics result in algorithms that can model, adapt, predict and act autonomously in a connected world. Such algorithms can approve loans, replenish inventory, trade stocks, control traffic flow, detect anomaly-based intrusions, drive cars, monitor health and administer drugs, manage energy consumption, predict crime hot spots, write news articles, and make recruitment and retrenchment decisions. The increasingly powerful role of algorithms driven by big data in both industry and government also leads to questions about security, privacy, surveillance and algorithmic accountability, among others.

This conference will explore how organizations can – and do – learn, adapt and innovate to respond more effectively, efficiently, rapidly and responsibly to changing circumstances using bigger data, smarter analytics and safer security.

The 11th Annual Midwest Association for Information Systems Conference will accept current topics on pedagogy, research and service in IS and/or IT. The conference will provide an intimate environment to facilitate the sharing of ideas and findings. MWAIS 2016 seeks to expand the information frontiers of IS and we invite submissions reflecting a plurality of perspectives on the field of IS. Submissions of an interdisciplinary nature are especially encouraged.
