29th Australasian Conference on Information Systems 3rd - 5th December 2018, University of Technology Sydney, New South Wales, Australia www.acis2018.org<http://www.acis2018.org>.


The Australasian Conference on Information Systems (ACIS) is the premier conference in Australasia for Information Systems. In 2018, the 29th ACIS will be hosted by the University of Technology Sydney (UTS), New South Wales, Australia. The event will take place at the UTS campus from the 3rd - 5th December 2018. The UTS campus is in the centre of Sydney, close to the central train station and many highlights of Sydney, including the iconic Sydney Opera House.

Conference Theme: Strategic Positioning

Within the current global context, resilience is a key driver for various facets of decision-making processes. Information Systems have a critical role to facilitate such processes. Indeed, Information Systems researchers have pioneered many of the conceptual tools that this vantage point of decision-making demands. This thematic view of Information Systems offers researchers the opportunity to position and present their efforts, not only more cohesively, but also provides a platform to focus on the impact of Information Systems research to solve ongoing societal challenges. These include a focus on organisational resilience and sustainability encompassing risk assessment, cyber threats mitigation, the role of big data, disaster management, and environmental modelling.

Come and join us at ACIS2018 where we will explore these issues through our tracks and plenary sessions.
