ICIS is the most prestigious gathering of IS academics and research-oriented practitioners in the world. The attendance at this year's conference was 1,268 people.
ICIS convenes annually to present scientific papers and to examine the constantly changing field of information systems theory and practice. These meetings present a unique opportunity to exhibit to one of the most influential audiences in the field of information systems.
ICIS 2009 was held in the warm and sunny climate of southern Arizona at the J.W. Marriott Desert Ridge Resort in Phoenix, Arizona, USA. In addition to ample local recreational and cultural opportunities, Phoenix is but a few hours’ drive from the Grand Canyon (the “eighth wonder of the world”) and the popular recreation areas of Sedona, Oak Creek, and Flagstaff.
The theme of the conference, “Doing IT Research That Matters,” addresses the need for information systems research to be timely, relevant, and far-reaching in its impacts on individuals, groups, organizations and society.
This year there were a total of 703 submissions in 23 tracks. A total of 141 full papers were accepted (27.27% acceptance rate). In addition, there were 57 Research-in-progress (posters) accepted and 7 panels.
