International Conference on Information Systems (ICIS) is an annual international conference for academics and research-oriented practitioners in the area of Information Systems. Previously known as the Conference on Information Systems (CIS), ICIS is the flagship conference of Association for Information Systems, an international professional organization serving academics in Information Systems. It is generally regarded as one of the most prestigious gatherings for the information systems research community around the world.[1][2][3][4]

ICIS was founded in 1980 at UCLA and the first conference was held in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania the same year. Starting 1990, when it had its first international venue in Copenhagen, Denmark, ICIS has been traditionally held outside of America once every several years. ICIS is usually scheduled in early December and lasts for four days.

The conference is preceded by the ICIS Doctoral Consortium,[5] held off site usually in a nearby resort. The consortium brings together senior faculty from Information Systems (many of whom were participants in past consortia) and ~40 doctoral students, selected from ~120 nominations (each university or institution is allowed to nominate only one participant).

The schedule for the year to come is as follows: December 2013, Bocconi University, Milan, Italy.
