21 Australasian Conference on Information Systems (ACIS) (Brisbane, Australia), December 1st – 3rd 2010
published on Monday, November 22nd 2010

This year’s ACIS conference was hosted by the Queensland University of Technology (QUT) in Brisbane, Australia. ACIS is the prime conference for Information Systems researchers in the Asia-Pacific region and attracted more than 400 participants and 289 paper submissions in 2010. Therefore, the conference is an excellent opportunity for building up and extending ties with the Asian-Pacific research community.

ERCIS researchers were closely involved in the ACIS conference in various roles, i.e., as hosts, associate editors, track chairs, program committee members, reviewers, workshop organizers, doctoral consortium participants, and presenting authors. These multiple roles provided excellent mechanisms to promote the idea of the NSS project in the Australasian research community.

At the conference itself, the first joint paper published in the NSS project by representatives from QUT (Brisbane) and WWU (Münster) was presented, outlining “Online Service Delivery Models – An International Comparison in the Public Sector”. In addition, Jens Pöppelbuß successfully presented his doctoral thesis outline “Improving IS Capabilities in Service Networks” at the ACIS doctoral consortium.
