The Eighth Washington Area IT Symposium (WAITS) will be hosted at American University in scenic Washington DC the afternoon of April 12, 2024 from Noon to 2:30pm. I tried to get Gwanhoo to promise sandwiches, but he only promised much much more!

The goal of WAITS is to bring together like-minded IS scholars in the greater DC Metro area and facilitate inter-school dialogue and collaboration. While there are many business schools in the DMV, and many tremendous IS departments each with their own talented researchers, communication between the groups is limited. This stifles synergies, creative and innovative work, and the opportunity for each of us to learn from each other. It is the objective of WAITS to eliminate this problem by coming together every semester.


We are lucky to have two fantastic researchers giving talks.
