Welcome to the IIMA

The International Information Management Association was founded in 1989, with the mission to provide a unique blend of high-quality academic research combined with social interaction.

As an example of that commitment to academic research, IIMA publishes the Journal of International Technology and Information Management (JITIM), a double blind reviewed publication; as well as the Communications of the IIMA (CIIMA) a double blind reviewed publication.  Each are published on a quarterly bases.  Manuscripts are solicited year around from all interested scholars and practitioners. All journals are listed in Cabell’s Publishing Directories of Academic Journals.  All Journals are Indexed and available in the following products:  ProQuest, ABI, PQCentral, Science, TECH, Technology and EBSCO Host.

The conference combines academic excellence and friendly interaction to create a collegial atmosphere that is usually missing from other conferences. The majority of our members know each other on a first name basis and regularly communicate and collaborate throughout the year.

The IIMA 2018 is a joint conference with ICITED (International Conference on Information Technology and Economic Development)

For industrial professionals, this is a wonderful opportunity for inspiring new ideas, recruiting students, and networking with researchers.

Message from the CEO
Friends and Colleagues of the IIMA:

A new year has come and another successful conference has passed.  We had a wonderful time in Scotland and are thankful for all the work and effort of our members.

We are dedicated to providing opportunities to succeed.

We are grateful for our journal editors, our reviewers and those that have submitted articles.

I want to personally invite each of you to attend and invite you to bring 3 things to the conference: a friend/colleague, a paper to present, and an idea to usher the IIMA into the future.

We look forward to this year’s conference in Houston and a visit to NASA.
