Minneapolis, Minnesota, May 2, 2013 -- The INFORMS Conference on Information Systems and Technology (CIST 2013) will be held on Oct. 5-6, in Minneapolis, Minnesota, in conjunction with the INFORMS Annual Meeting. The theme of the conference is “Business Analytics and the Information Economy.” The explosion of data and unprecedented ability to leverage information in the current economy are creating intriguing and unique research opportunities for the Information Systems community. Firms across diverse industries capture terabytes and petabytes of information about their customers, suppliers, and operations. Businesses and individuals are interacting in new and complex ways over social media, with the various social networking and e-commerce sites contributing to this exponential growth in data and generating compelling research questions. The ability to analyze and understand all of this data, develop and study models of new phenomena, and effectively leverage the data and insights poses an important challenge for modern organizations and society. The conference will feature panels, keynote speakers and research papers that explore strategic, research and policy issues concerning the possibilities and implications related to business analytics and information systems in the knowledge economy.

We invite original research in all areas of Information Systems and related fields that seek to address a broad range of issues related to the conference theme with novel ideas, methodologies and findings.
