Workshops are typically half- or full-day sessions that facilitate discussion and exploration of ideas, techniques, and methodologies that advance research, teaching knowledge of IS-related concepts, or products from industry and their application to academia, educational curricula, or industry practice.

Key Benefits to using the OAM Site to plan your ancillary event:

  • Your event attendees will have the convenience to book during the AMCIS registration process, or to add your event to their itineraries after registration.
