Call For Papers

Savannah, Georgia, USA will be the location for the 20th Americas Conference on Information Systems and will be held Thursday, August 7 through Sunday, August 10, 2014.

In Savannah, dramatic architecture from centuries ago mingles with trendy downtown boutiques and microbreweries. You can get lost in numerous art galleries or find yourself sipping sweet tea at a sidewalk café. Whether you’re looking for laid-back luxury or seeing and doing as much as possible, Savannah Georgia is just the right speed for singles, couples, and families.

Savannah Int'l Trade CenterWe will meet at the Savannah International Trade & Convention Center which sits on the shores of the Savannah River and is connected to the Westin Savannah Harbor Golf Resort & Spa. The Hyatt Regency Savannah is also under contract for this conference. Overflow hotels are located across the river and complimentary water taxis and shuttles via ground transportation will be provided.

Plan to join us for some genuine Southern hospitality in Savannah for AMCIS 2014!
Conference theme - SMART SUSTAINABILITY: the Information Systems Opportunity

In the last few years, the word "smart" has been appended to many central features of the modern world, such as cities, grids, organizations, and buildings. Smart, in this sense, implies that information systems are used to advance sustainability. A smart city produces less waste, requires less water, and has highly efficient and convenient public transit. A smart building uses information about the weather and occupancy to reduce energy consumption. A smart organization consumes fewer resources by applying novel ways to substitute physical artifacts and resource sinks with information. Trends towards networked objects that communicate and autonomously coordinate, the Internet of Things, and the growth of big data are some fragmented manifestations of this. It is about making smarter decisions about sustainability through the use information systems at every level—organizations, networks of entitles (organizations, supply chains, resources), geographic conglomerations (cities, regions, nations), and the society. Thus, it is an opportunity for IS scholars and practitioners to contribute novel ideas to help substantively shape an ecologically sustainable society.
