Ancillary Meetings Planning

The Association for Information Systems (AIS) is seeking participation by all Information Systems organizations to conduct an ancillary meeting at AMCIS 2024 in Salt Lake City, Utah.

Registration will open mid-April for all SIG/Ancillary/Pre/Post conference meeting event requests.

Should you require assistance or have questions during this process, please contact Julie Rule at

Reminder: All workshops should be submitted as workshops.


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:

  • SIG and Ancillary events arranged through the OAM receive the best available audio/visual and food & beverage rates.
  • Your event attendees will have the convenience to book during the AMCIS registration process, or to add your event to their itineraries after registration.
  • Hotel management – Ancillary event organizers can opt to take advantage of AIS’ meeting planning services to negotiate on your behalf to plan your event exactly how you want.
