Professional Development Symposia

In keeping with the AMCIS 2020 theme, “A Vision for the Future”, we are looking for submissions that will create, identify, and frame a vision for the future of information technology in industry and academia. We encourage sessions that exchange ideas about digital technologies, their interaction with people and processes, and how and when they can lead to organizational innovation and transformation.

We invite you to propose a Professional Development Symposium for AMCIS 2020. Consistent with the

AMCIS 2020 theme of A Vision for the Future, proposals can be directed toward any

topic that may be of interest to conference attendees. Symposia are typically designed to have broad practical application and are conducted during a regular

session at the conference.
