Gold Sponsor!

We are delighted to announce that Prospect Press has increased our involvement with conferences sponsored by the Association for Information Systems (AIS). For the first time, we have committed to being a Gold Sponsor of this year’s International Conference on Information Systems (ICIS) being held in San Francisco from December 13-16. It is a pleasure to further our collaboration with AIS with our shared goal of supporting advancement of the evolving IS curriculum. Further, we express our deep gratitude to the hard and inspired efforts of our authors, book reviewers, and to the IS educators around the globe that have been increasingly adopting our textbooks. Thank-you.
