This Year's Tracks

IS that Serves Society

As students and future practitioners of information systems (IS), you play a significant part in the AIS mission. This contest will allow you to demonstrate the impact that IS can have on society by challenging a team of individuals to design and implement an information system that can serve as an innovative solution to a societal problem.

Security Policy Competition

The case study competition is written with many clues about the security problems at "InvestCo". The intent is for student teams to pull the many problems from the case study and craft potential solutions to each one. Then teams should work to create a coherent security policy for employees and clients that balances security and accessibility.

AIS Student Chapter Video Competition

Women are traditionally an underrepresented population not only in information systems, but across all computing disciplines. That's why we, along with the great people at the AIS IS Women's Network and National Center for Women in IT (NCWIT), are challenging you to change that by creating a short (no more than 5 minute) video explaining why women should study IS!
