Call For Papers

The explosion of data and unprecedented ability to leverage information in the current economy are creating intriguing and unique research opportunities for the Information Systems community. Firms across diverse industries capture terabytes and petabytes of information about their customers, suppliers, and operations. Businesses and individuals are interacting in new and complex ways over social media, with the various social networking and e-commerce sites contributing to this exponential growth in data and generating compelling research questions. The ability to analyze and understand all of this data, develop and study models of new phenomena, and effectively leverage the data and insights poses an important challenge for modern organizations and society.
