60th IACIS Annual Conference - October 7 - 10, 2020

The Inn at Opryland, Nashville, Tennessee



Conference Theme: Internet of Things (IoT)

The IACIS International Conference provides a showcase for the latest research in practice and pedagogical topics that focus on how information systems are used to support organizations or enhance the educational process. The theme of the 2020 IACIS conference is the Internet of Things (IoT). The IoT is the communication that occurs between a network of physical objects that feature an IP address for internet connectivity and Internet-enabled devices and systems. Some applications of IoT are security, privacy, inventory management, logistics and supply chain optimization, product flow monitoring, quality control, connected car, connected health (digital health/telehealth/telemedicine), industrial internet, smart city, smart farming, smart grids, smart home, smart retail, smart supply chain, and wearables among others. The IoT has been ranked as #1 in the top ten list of technologies that are perceived by technology industry leaders as having the greatest potential to drive future business transformation and long-term value.
