Scientists and experts will gather virtually June 8-10, 2020 for the 23rd edition of the International Business Information Systems Conference. Originally intended to be held on UCCS campus, the BIS Conference will now be available to international attendees in an online format. 

The BIS Conference originated in 1997 to foster scientific discussions on the development, implementation and application of business information systems. It has since grown into a world renowned event for the business information systems community, attracting a multidisciplinary audience of scientists, researchers and experts in business computing applications. The BIS Conference has been held internationally in Poland, Austria, Germany and Spain. UCCS hosted the conference in 2003, making this the second appearance for UCCS in the 23-year history.
