Track: Business Analytics, Big Data and Knowledge Management (SIGDSA) Minitracks: Business Analytics for Organizational Performance Management, Innovative Approaches to Data and Text Mining, Managing (Big) Data as an Asset,and Spatial Business Intelligence, Analytics, and Knowledge Management

We invite submissions to the various mini-tracks listed above under the "Business Analytics, Big Data and Knowledge Management" track sponsored by the AIS Special Interest Group on Decision Support and Analytics (SIGDSA).

In recent years, the ability to manage (big) data, information and knowledge to gain competitive advantage and the importance of business analytics for this process has been well established. Organizations are investigating ways to efficiently and effectively collect and manage the data, information and knowledge they are exposed to via various internal and external sources in the networked society.

Research contributions in this space continue to enlighten industry on how to handle the various organizational and technical opportunities and challenges when working with big data, knowledge management and analytics. From research on managerial concerns (such as strategy, governance, leadership), process centric approaches and interorganizational aspects of decision support to research on technical considerations when incorporating new data sources and new frameworks for big data, analytics and knowledge management, academic endeavors in this space provides insights on a dynamic and highly relevant field within information systems.

The research track seeks research that promote theoretical, design science, pedagogical, behavioral research and emerging applications in innovative areas of analytics, big data, and knowledge management. In keeping with the Blue Ocean Research theme of the AMCIS 2015 conference, the track hopes to emphasize and encourage research that creates and explores new and uncontested areas within analytics, big data and knowledge management in addition to the traditional areas of interest within this space. Given the very broad and encompassing nature of the research area, there is room for new research and manuscripts involving emerging issues, challenges and trends.


We are excited to announce that starting this year the best analytics research and research in progress papers in the Business Analytics, Big Data and Knowledge Management (SIGDSA) track will be considered for fast tracking to Decision Sciences Journal (DSJ). The authors of the selected papers will be notified of this decision at the same time the acceptance decisions are sent to authors, and will be invited to attend a DSJ development workshop that is part of the pre-conference program.
