The Special Interest Group on Accounting Information System (SIG-ASYS) dedicates
itself to facilitating, supporting and disseminating world class research on accounting
information systems. Accounting information systems research focuses on the link
between accounting and information systems, including IT governance, IT controls,
IT processes, and Sarbanes-Oxley. Our research draws from accounting, psychology,
cognitive science, behavioral science, economics, and information technology.
The goal of SIGASYS is to link the accounting information systems research community
with the broader information systems research community. In accordance with the
mandates of the parent organization, Association for Information Systems, this organization
will be devoted to the promotion of accounting information systems research on a
global basis. This will include the sponsorship of conferences/colloquia in all
three global regions as defined by the Association for Information Systems (i.e.,
the Americas, Europe/Africa, and Asia-Pacific). SIGASYS will also strive to promote
the publication of research on an international level.
We support a number of workshops each year, with our major event being the
Pre-ICIS Workshop, held in conjunction with ICIS
each year. In the Asia-Pacific region we support the Asia/Pacific Research Symposium
on Accounting Information Systems, held in conjunction with AFAANZ. In Europe, we
support the European Conference on Accounting Information Systems (ECAIS).
