    The Journal of Information Systems (JIS) will hold the 1st JIS Research Conference (JISC2015) at the offices of the AICPA in New York City, NY on March 26 & 27, 2015. JIS is the research journal of the Accounting Information Systems (AIS) section of the American Accounting Association.

    Conference Design and Theme

    The design of JISC2015 is to provide an opportunity for intense discussion between academics and professionals on research in a targeted area of concern to the broad AIS community. The conference will involve research presentations, round-table discussions, and a keynote presentation; attendance at the conference will be limited to those on the program. Each research paper presentation will have an academic and a professional commentator. Papers presented at JISC2015 will appear in a theme issue of JIS, edited by Dr. Diane Janvrin of Iowa State University and Dr. David Wood of Brigham Young University.

    The focus of JISC2015 is on Information Technology auditing. Given the increasing importance of technology in all aspects of business and government, IT auditing has become a vital part of internal and external audit. Papers on all aspects of Information Technology auditing are welcome. All research methodologies are welcome, including experimental, qualitative, field study, analytical, behavioral, archival, design science, and empirical.

    Paper submission

    Final papers should follow the JIS editorial policy and be submitted to JIS using the AAA’s manuscript management system. Full details are available at Papers accepted to JISC2015 also receive a conditional acceptance to JIS. Research teams are expected to improve their papers following the guidance from the academic and professional reviewers and from interaction at the conference. Papers not accepted for the conference may continue to receive editorial review by JIS.
