The AMCIS 2019 LACAIS track will encourage researchers to submit their work on critical issues in IT that are specific to the context of Latin American countries. Latin America consists of twenty culturally diverse sovereign states and has a population of more than 640 million people. Portuguese is the official language of Brazil, the biggest country in the region, with one third of the Latin America population, while Spanish is the most spoken language in the other countries. A recent Nasdaq report refers to Latin America as a “vibrant, emerging technology hub.” For instance, it points out that Brazil is the fifth largest internet and mobile economy in the world, with a consistent 20% annual growth of its e-commerce segment, and a top-five market for Facebook, Google, and Twitter as far as the number of users is concerned. Another report projects a 30.3% CAGR between 2018 and 2023 for the Latin American blockchain technology market and an expected global revenue of USD 0.51 billion by 2023. Independent forecasts also suggest that the general IT services market will grow at a CAGR of 11.55% in the region, between 2014 and 2019. Paradoxically, Latin America still faces various challenges regarding individuals’ and organization’s access to and use of IT. The effectiveness of IT investments has been hindered by macroenvironmental factors that characterize the region, such as substantial economic and digital inequalities, heterogeneous digital infrastructures, and institutional, political and economic turbulence. Even so, Information Technology is seen as a critical component in the social and economic development of its various countries (e.g., World Economic Forum, 2018). This track will open a space for researchers and practitioners in Latin America to present high-quality scholarly and applied papers written in Spanish, Portuguese and English. In this way, it aims at fostering the development of fruitful professional relationships, not only among members of the AIS community in Latin American countries, but also between their educational institutions and companies, as a means to create and critically assess IT-related alternatives to address the problems faced by the Latin American governments, organizations, and populations.
