“Information systems research operates in a space that is created through the interaction of people and technology in the context of businesses and organizations (Socio-economical Systems). The IS research field is very vibrant and active, with a diverse community of scholars from colorful and interesting backgrounds. The space is vast, research topics are novel, cutting edge, and interesting, and the opportunity for growth is plentiful.”
