Industry Track

If you are an analytics or data science professional seeking to engage with like-minded business professionals and academic researchers/educators, then please consider attending the 2018 Pre-ICIS SIGDSA Symposium! The Symposium is being co-located with the International Conference on Information Systems (ICIS) – the premier worldwide information systems conference for academics and CIOs. The symposium will take place prior to the ICIS conference, i.e., on December 12-13, 2018 (Wed-Thu). The symposium program will feature paper presentations, panels, tutorials, networking, and an exciting keynote address.

Industry collaborators are encouraged to co-author submissions for the Research or Teaching Track with academic colleagues. If there are any questions about the suitability of such a joint submission, please don’t hesitate to e-mail a member of the symposium program committee. Prototypes Track is another area where industry partners can collaborate with academic members to showcase state-of-the-art product demos and research prototypes. We also hope to engage industry participants as panel members for discussing relevant and exciting topics relevant to the symposium theme. Last, but not least, we also invite contributions from industry partners as paper reviewers and discussants. If you are interested in either of these roles, please contact the Symposium Co-Chairs or the Industry Track Chair.

We believe that strong industry involvement is critical for the success of the Pre-ICIS SIGDSA symposium. Academics can expect many opportunities to work with industry participants, such as during industry sessions, keynote talks, research, teaching and prototypes tracks, and the many networking opportunities throughout the event.

While academic attendees will most likely attend the ICIS conference simultaneously with the Pre-ICIS SIGDSA symposium, many of our industry collaborators will be attending only the Pre-ICIS SIGDSA symposium. Special registration rates are available for industry participants either through pre-registration or at the day of the event, space allowing.
