Special Interest Group for Accounting Information Systems (SIG-ASYS)

A Special Interest Group of the Association for Information Systems

About us

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).
