UKAIS 2011 : UK Academy of Information Systems Annual International Conference
Call For Papers
The United Kingdom Academy for Information Systems (UKAIS) arose from a meeting in 1993 of leading UK academics in Information Systems. Concerns were expressed at the meeting about the way IS teaching and research were funded. The concerns stemmed from a lack of recognition of IS as a growing and important academic discipline. UKAIS was established in 1994 to remedy this situation. It is a charity, whose aims are to provide a better knowledge of IS within the UK and to provide a forum for discussing issues in IS teaching and research. Since this first meeting in 1993, UKAIS has recognised the importance of including practitioners into its remit.
The UKAIS conference is the premiere academic event in the Information Systems calendar within the UK and attracts leading academics and researchers from the UK and overseas.
This year's conference will once again be held in the beautiful city of Oxford, and will bring together academics, researchers and practitioners of information systems for an exchange of ideas and experience around the subject of ‘IS/IT in its many uses’
