ICIS is the major annual meeting of the Association for Information Systems (AIS), which has over 4,000 members representing universities in over 95 countries worldwide. It is the most prestigious gathering of academics and practitioners in the IS discipline, and provides a forum for networking and sharing of latest ideas and highest caliber scientific work among the IS professions. Each year, over 1,000 IS academic professions from around the world participate in the conference program, which includes about 60 sessions and 180 presentations, in addition to keynotes, CIO panels, and research panels.
The theme of ICIS 2013 is Reshaping Society Through Information Systems Design and Milan was chosen to host the conference.
ICIS 2013 will be back in Academia Building and host by Bocconi University.
In addition to being the hub of business and financial activities in Italy, Milano is also attractive as a cultural centre. A look at the windows of the elegant downtown shops confirms its position as a world capital of fashion and design. Milan¡¦s vibrantly modern outlook is cast in a context that began in the seventh century BC as a Celtic settlement.
Since then, the city has been destroyed and rebuilt at various points in its history, and it is a miracle that so many historic treasures survive, including Leonardo da Vinci¡¦s Last Supper. Its museums, ancient churches, historical sights (Castello Sforzesco) and cultural institutions (La Scala opera house) offer great opportunities for visitors. From the 14th century Cathedral (Duomo) at the very heart of town to the nearby alpine lakes and peaks, there are countless ways to experience an unforgettable and multifaceted holiday in and around Milan. For the enthusiasts, the Ambrosiana Library, established in 1607 by Cardinal Federico Borromeo was the third library ever opened (in 1609) to the public, after Oxford (the Boldeian) and Rome (the Angelica).
