from 23-25 October 2023 Hosted by IIMA Las Vegas, Nevada, USA
Dear Members of the International Information Management Association (IIMA),
I am both honored and excited to address you as the incoming President of IIMA. It is with great humility and enthusiasm that I take on this role, and I am deeply appreciative of the trust you have placed in me to lead this phenomenal organization. My warmest welcome is extended to all of you as we embark on a journey to advance information systems in academia and the professional realm.
Thanks to all of you who helped make the 34th annual conference of the International Information Management Association (IIMA) in Las Vegas back in October, 2023, such a wonderful success. Here are some highlights that come to mind as I reflect on our days together – I’m sure I’ve forgotten some of the many experiences and interactions already!
|Steinke, SBGE host conference |
Gerhard Steinke, professor of management and information systems, and the School of Business, Government, and Economics hosted the 33rd annual conference of the International Information Management Association (IIMA) in Seattle, Oct. 23–26, 2022. Conference participants were treated to a wide variety of thought-provoking keynote, paper, and workshop presentations. The conference took place at the Museum of Flight, as well as in Falcon Lounge on the SPU campus. Jim Jenkins, adjunct faculty, and several IS Data Analytics graduate students helped host guests from as far away as the United Kingdom and the Netherlands. Conference events included a trip up to the top of the Space Needle, the conference dinner at the Crab Pot restaurant, and a trip to Microsoft. One of the grad students created this short video recap of the conference.
The Mission and Vision of The International Information Management Association
The International Information Management Association (IIMA) is a supportive organization founded in 1989, with the mission to provide the opportunity for a diverse community of academics, students, and professionals to come together to produce high-quality academic research, participate in professional development, network and engage in social interactions in pursuit of expanding knowledge in the area of information systems and analytics, where the discipline can sustainably excel and individuals thrive through collective effort and strategic collaborations across global academic and professional communities.
During the conferences, it is not unusual for every IIMA member to attend all paper presentations. This combination of academic excellence and friendly interaction creates 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. If you choose to join us at one of our conferences, you will immediately notice the difference.
Why attend IIMA?
For academic researchers, this is a great chance for discovering new research directions, interacting with other researchers and professionals. For students, this is a great time for learning latest technology and research trends and finding job opportunities. For industrial professionals, this is a wonderful opportunity for inspiring new ideas, recruiting students, and networking with researchers.About IIMA short
