The Pacific Asia Conference on Information Systems (PACIS) is the premier venue for networking with information systems (IS) scholars in the Pacific Asia region. It offers a great opportunity for researchers to exchange research findings on the latest development in the IS field, and to foster regional and international collaboration within the community. The theme of the conference this year is “Smart, Open, and Social Information Systems.”

Record-breaking is a keyword to describe this year’s PACIS. In total, 583 manuscripts, 441 regular and 142 research-in-progress (RIP) papers, were received from authors in 38 countries and regions. This represents a 10% increase over the previous record of 529 submissions to PACIS 2011. The top 10 contributing countries and regions are China, Australia, Taiwan, Korea, USA, Malaysia, Germany, Singapore, Hong Kong, and New Zealand. More than 520 participants have registered for the conference, which is another record-breaking number. These numbers reflect a significant growing trend of the IS community in the Asia Pacific region.

Among the 22 tracks, the most popular ones were Social Media and Business Impacts (58 submissions), Knowledge Management and Business Intelligence (57 submissions), and Electronic and Mobile Businesses (47 submissions). They fit the conference theme really well on social, smart, and open IS. Each manuscript received at least two double-blind reviews and a final recommendation from the track chairs. The overall acceptance rate was 46.1% for regular and RIP papers combined. A total of 217 regular papers and 52 RIP papers were accepted at the end. In addition, 17 RIP-formatted doctoral consortium papers are included. Thus, all 286 papers are included in the Proceedings, which are available from both the AIS Library and the PACIS Proceeding Repository (www.pacis-net.org).
