Doctoral Student Corner


The AIS Doctoral Student College is hosting a series of events as a part of this year’s ICIS Doctoral Student Corner, designed especially for doctoral students attending ICIS 2023.

Our community is dedicated to building opportunities and providing support to all doctoral students, and we extend this endeavor at ICIS 2023 with a host of events designed to facilitate networking with senior scholars and peers, highlight your research, and enhance your experience at the conference.
