A Reflection on ICIS 2010
I've been able to attend ICIS most years since the end of my PhD program in 2004 or so. I always find the pre-ICIS workshops, such as SIGHCI's workshop or the Workshop on Information Technologies & Systems (WITS) as more valuable than ICIS and the some of the other conferences I attend. The pre-ICIS workshops provide a very focused time discussing research ideas with colleagues working in similar areas and methodologies. On the other hand ICIS does provide extremely valuable networking opportunities. Overall, I am always given a boost / inspired, motivated by attending ICIS and the pre-ICIS workshops. Now it's time to go back home and put my ideas into practice.
