ICIS2009 Logo  



This year, the ICIS 2009 committee is proud and excited to continue the successful CIO Symposium program begun last year. The goal of the symposium is to facilitate a productive dialogue between the academic and CIO communities, thus narrowing the gap between research and practice—some might say that ICIS has pursued this goal for many years.


What’s new for the 2009 CIO Symposium?

  • First, in addition to being held during the ICIS Conference, it has evolved from its initial offering during the previous ICIS and AMCIS events into a full-day event.
  • Second, the focus will be on the interaction between leading academics and CIOs from around the world, and on issues recognized as fundamental to the success of both constituencies.
  • Third, the sessions held on Thursday will address three important themes:
    • 10:30 a.m. – 12 p.m. Sourcing/Offshoring
    • 2 – 3:30 p.m. Regulation, Compliance, and Risk Management
    • 4 – 5:30 p.m. Emerging Trends, Strategy, and Leadership

The dialogue that will ensue during the symposium will have the two communities engaging in deep debate and discussion clarifying strategic issues that face CIOs around the world—we hope you will join us!
