The School of Information Management of Victoria University of Wellington welcomes you to the website for the 2011 New Zealand Information Systems Doctoral Conference (NZISDC2011) which washeld in Wellington at Victoria University' s Pipitea Campus on 6 August, 2011.

The second annual New Zealand Information Systems Doctoral Conference (NZISDC) provides a forum for New Zealand Information Systems doctoral students to present their research-in-progress (current research ideas, approaches, interests, issues, and methodologies), and to receive feedback from fellow students and leading academics in the field.

NZISDC is open to all New Zealand Information Systems PhD or DBA students (at any stage of their research), their supervisors, and Information Systems academic staff at all New Zealand universities. The conference offers IS doctoral students the opportunity to learn about their peers' research and meet distinguished information systems faculty from New Zealand's eight universities.

The venue of NZISDC2011, Wellington, is New Zealand's capital city and home to Parliament, numerous cafes, and a bustling art scene with many galleries, theatres, and museums. The earliest Maori name for Wellington is Te Upoko o te Ika a Maui - which means ‘the head of Maui's fish’ - stemming from the Maori legend that polynesian navigator Maui fished up the North Island. You can find out more about Wellington at WellingtonNZ.

We look forward to seeing you at NZISDC2011 in Wellington, and keep checking our website often for important updates.

UPDATE: A big thanks to everyone who attended the conference and helped to make it a success. We hope to see the event continued in the future and look forward to seeing you next time!
