The 12th Annual Midwest Association for Information Systems Conference (MWAIS 2017) will be hosted on May 18-19, 2017 by the College of Business and Management at the University of Illinois at Springfield. As the home of President Abraham Lincoln, Springfield offers many attractions for visitors to experience the Lincoln tradition. The social event will be held at the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum with dinner served in the museum plaza with access to several exhibits: Ghosts of the Library, The Journeys and the Treasures Gallery, and the Illinois Gallery special exhibit on the decades-long Cubs/Cardinals rivalry.

Opportunity for virtual participation: 

To increase access to the conference, a small number of participants from outside the USA will be able to present their papers remotely and interact with the audience. The keynote sessions and several other sessions will be live-streamed for individuals who wish to attend the conference remotely.
