The Americas' Conference on Information Systems (AMCIS) will take place in Panama in August 2023

From February 1 to 15, 2023, the International Hit Festival of the Americas will take place in Panama.

Welcome to the Americas Conference on Information Systems (AMCIS) 2023 Conference. We are excited to announce that AMCIS 2023 will be held in Panama City, Panama.  The conference brings together information systems researchers from around the world to discuss cutting-edge research.

The Americas' Conference on Information Systems (AMCIS) is one of the leading annual conferences for presenting the broadest variety of research by IS/IT scholars in North America and beyond. Every year its papers, panels and workshops are selected from over 800 submissions, presenting the latest research in systems, technology and methods from around the world and from across the SIG communities.

Exponential growth and advancement in the field of Information Technology, especially in the field of artificial intelligence (AI), augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR), robotics, and the Internet of Things (IoT), has created massive uncertainty. Businesses and academia alike are in pursuit of intelligence to navigate the uncharted waters exposed by emerging technologies. At AMCIS 2023, we will take a deep dive into this new territory to characterize the uncertainty as well as provide actionable insights to navigate this new terrain and uncover amazing new possibilities. This conference will provide a platform to bring together business professionals and academic researchers who are engaged in using technology to solve business and societal challenges. Therefore, it is an opportunity for a business, which is at the forefront of providing technological products and ser- vices, to reach 900 or more attendees and impact the additional 4,500+ members of the Association for Information Systems.
