Conference Objectives:
Over the past few years the academic IS discipline has been in something of a crisis with practitioners questioning its relevance and falling student enrolments. Nevertheless, there can be no doubt that the discipline has made important contributions to our understanding of the IS phenomena and the design, development and implementation of IS systems. The theme of 2009 UKAIS conference is to underline the positive contribution IS is making and will continue to make in the future.  Papers are invited which stress what is and what can be achieved in terms of design methods, understanding and improving practice, as well as in teaching good practice and sound research.
 
This conference, to be held in the beautiful University City of Oxford, will bring together researchers and practitioners of information systems for an exchange of ideas and experience. The program will consist of invited talks, paper presentations, panels, and exhibitions.
 
Conference Structure:
We recognise that the UKAIS and its conference serve people at different stages in their careers and with different perspectives on their research and practice. In order to ensure optimal rapport between audience and speaker, we will structure the conference to reflect these different categories. Areas of interest will include the following:
 
* IS in Business and Organisations - for those taking an applied approach;
* Current research - research in established and emerging topic areas;
* Research outcomes - orientated towards design and the production of valid outcomes/results;
* Teaching and Learning - experiences of teaching in the information systems field, especially the use of IT in IS education.
 
New presenters - presenters with all levels of experience are encouraged to submit papers; in particular the conference aims to encourage and support the current and next generation of people who are presenting at a national conference for the first or second time.
