Symposium Objectives

The symposium will provide an informal setting for networking and will focus on research presentations by junior faculty members and Ph.D. students. It will also provide a forum to learn about ongoing research at other Big XII+ schools, identify areas for research collaboration, and provide a collegial environment to advance MIS teaching. Prominent researchers from Big XII+ MIS programs will attend the meetings and participate in both panels and general discussions. The conference will not require a registration fee, and meals will be provided by the Spears School of Business during the duration of the symposium.

Doctoral students are encouraged to present their research papers to obtain feedback from senior faculty at fellow Big XII+ institutions. For programs which do not have a doctoral program, junior faculty can present their research papers as well.
