The Pacific Asia Conference on Information Systems (PACIS) is an annual academic conference intended to provide a forum for researchers working on all aspects of information systems to share their work. The prime purpose of PACIS is to enable regional and international information systems researchers to meet in an annual forum that maximizes the opportunity for quality information exchange.

We received an impressive number of 641 submissions this year, comprising 464 completed papers and 177 research-in-progress papers. This indicates the growing significance and popularity of PACIS in the IS community. The papers went through a rigorous review process in which we were ably assisted by our track chairs and expert program committee members. As a result, we were able to select 257 high quality (177 completed and 80 research-in-progress) papers for the conference.

The conference program features 59 paper sessions, 3 poster sessions, 5 panels, 2 keynote addresses, 3 workshops, and 3 tutorials, in addition to the doctoral consortium. The paper and poster submissions are from 37 countries around the globe, with about three-quarters of them from outside Singapore. The paper sessions cover salient areas including social media and business impact, IS implementation, adoption, and diffusion, business intelligence and analytics, electronic and mobile business, and IT and open innovation, among others.
