Greetings from IIMA 2018 President

Greetings! The academic year is almost coming to an end for most of us, and hopefully it has been a good one. Looking back at the past year we see many successful activities such as the conference at the University of the West of Scotland in Paisley. Many old and new friends met and joined in interesting workshops and presentations. Furthermore it is good to see that both our journals are publishing high quality papers with relevance to both the scientific community as well as practice.

Also lots of hard work and planning has been taking place behind the scenes, with many thanks to Emmanuel and many others in organizing this year’s conference. I would like to personally invite you to submit an abstract or paper to the upcoming joint 29th Annual International Information Management Association and 5th International Conference on Information Technology and Economic Development hosted by Prairie View A&M University in Houston, Texas – October 8-10, 2018. As always there will be workshops, and regular paper track presentations; also be sure to invite your students and PhD candidates to submit papers as well. Invite your colleagues, friends and students to submit their papers or abstract to https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=iimaicited2018

Even with all these great activities going on we of course still miss our founder and inspirer Tapie Rohm. However by continuing what he started his legacy will always be remembered.

Enjoy the summer and I look forward to seeing you all again this Fall!

— Pascal Ravesteijn, IIMA 2018 President
