REGISTRATION INFORMATION

Registration for the ICIS conference, plus all AIS SIG and Ancillary meetings, are handled by a single registration process. A separate registration fee applies for the conference and for each AIS SIG and ancillary meeting for which you register, but you are able to register for all events on a single registration form.

All registration fees are in US Dollars. All participants must pay the applicable registration fees, including workshop speakers, paper presenters, session moderators and conference committee members. New and/or renewing membership fees are included in the conference fees.

The ICIS conference fees include attendance at all conference sessions and exhibits, conference lunches, and refreshment breaks; the Welcome Reception and the social event. 

Guest tickets are available for both the full conference and the evening events. The guest full conference package includes a printed badge, all meals, and access to the evening events.

Early registration fees are offered at a discounted rate.

A: Purchase orders are not accepted. Registration badges will not be issued without some form of payment in full.  If evidence of company payment is not available on site, the participant will be given a registration badge only after he/she provides a valid credit card number as a guarantee until staff returns to the office following the conference.
