A workshop that offers a dynamic platform for professionals from diverse backgrounds to delve into the synergistic potential of integrating geospatial technologies with artificial intelligence (AI) to elevate societal well-being.

For more information, please contact djf2128@gmail.com

AMCIS participants are invited to discuss how recent business and technology trends are creating new requirements for IS leadership competencies. Our focus is on the IS educational offering, ranging from traditional degree programs to microcredentials and certifications. We ask how our evolving IS education helps professionals and executives prepare for leadership positions, and what IS program leaders can do to increase the number of excellent IS leaders.

An exploration into the future of Systems Analysis and Design (SAND), addressing its evolution in the context of increasingly complex societal and technological challenges. Examine the fundamental role of SAND principles in contemporary advancements. Participants will explore ways to move SAND scholarship forward in the era of AI and large language models (LLM), where information systems are no longer static, often stand-alone systems toward dynamic systems that continue to evolve beyond their original organizational confines.

Integrating Generative AI, especially GPT, is set to revolutionize startup innovation management, enhancing design processes from problem exploration to prototype evaluation (Mollick, 2024; Bilgram & Laarmann, 2023). This workshop will show how LLMs can democratize design innovation by enabling faster iterations and reducing uncertainty. Using two healthcare case studies, we will demonstrate how human creativity and AI tools enhance design. Participants will learn best practices to effectively integrate AI-driven strategies into their innovation management practices.

Navigating Large Language Models and Generative AI with Prompt Engineering: This workshop is designed to explore the intricacies of Generative AIs, such as OpenAI’s ChatGPT and Google’s Gemini, offer insights into their functionality, and delve into the artistry of interaction with these systems through the strategic development of effective prompts and fine-tuning model parameters. The workshop concludes exploring the paradigm shift Generative AI brings to higher education. Collaboration and sharing best practices will be emphasized.

In this workshop, attendees are introduced to playwriting and acting as a pedagogical method. Workshop leaders illustrate the method with a sample play. Attendees will then participate in a group exercise where each group researches an assigned topic, develops a short play, and performs (i.e., audibly acts out) their play in front of workshop attendees. Finally, attendees share their experiences and observations as part of a focus group following the play performances.

For more information, please see workshop abstract in the AMCIS program.

The objective is to introduce and discuss the growth of SIG GAME and discuss how can games and games, gamification and game based learning can be used for addressing business problems.

This is 6th QCA workshop at AMCIS that will foster discussion about how QCA can help IS researchers build novel theories, right ways to apply QCA, and new techniques that can help IS scholars apply QCA to diverse research topics. Qualitative comparative analysis (QCA), a research approach to build a configurational theory has been increasingly adopted by IS researchers in investigating complex digital phenomena from a systems perspective.

The consortium is limited to those who have completed their Ph.D. and do not yet have tenure. To participate in the consortium, please add it to your conference registration (limited to the first 25 people who register). We will then contact you directly with more information closer to the conference date.

This workshop will cover the topic of latent growth modeling (LGM), an extension of structural equation modeling used to estimate growth trajectories within a longitudinal study framework. LGM focuses on modeling developmental trajectories (whether the slope is significantly increasing or decreasing) and mapping patterns of change of latent variables over time, thus allowing researchers to analyze how processes or behaviors evolve.

For more information, please contact either jpatel@fit.edu or kaletajp@appstate.edu

Today, companies find themselves continuously moving between agile and traditional ways of work, creating a hybrid, rather than an agile state of work. This highly interactive workshop explores a prominent area of business life affected by the hybrid state of work – projects and project managers(PMs). We’ll share a model and tactics which give PMs a construct to navigate the complexity of hybrid work that attendees can use in practice or further their own research.

In this workshop, we will introduce KNIME Analytics Platform, an open-source free tool for codeless data analytics and AI. We will give examples of how the platform can be used for making sense of data: what is the geospatial impact of hurricanes, how to calculate CO2 emissions transparently, and how to perform fraud detection with generative AI. No background in KNIME, data analytics, or AI is required to follow the topics in this workshop.

For more information please contact aline.bessa@knime.com

The meeting is for a workshop on a Generative AI application (Q&A Search) using Google Cloud Platform (GCP).
