“Societal Transformation through Data Science”
16-17 JULY (SUN-MON)
LANGKAWI ISLAND, MALAYSIA
The rapid and continuous growth of information and communication technology (ICT) has changed the way society and businesses communicate and behave. In 1980’s, people and businesses used computers for typing purposes and processing data. Once, the Internet is opened to public in early 1990’s, people and businesses started using email as communication channel, searching information via website, chatting through online forum, and do transactions in the virtual world. Wireless and mobile technologies are used widely. It has led to performing transactions remotely and promoting the use of hand-held devices.
It is very clear that ICT gives direct impact to the individual user, society as well as businesses. The impact also varies which may include the way those parties behave, doing transactions, and conducting businesses. Information Systems (IS) which is a sub-field of computer science primarily focusing on the study and research on people and businesses as well as impacts in using and developing ICT, plays an important role in revealing significant knowledge related to these issues.
Following previous successes especially in 2015 which was participated by 200 participants held in Melaka, Malaysia, the Information & Service Systems Innovation Research Group, UTM is organizing the 5th ICRIIS 2017 at the Langkawi Island.
The theme for ICRIIS 2017 is Societal Transformation Through Data Science which is aligned with the growth of Big Data research and strong emphasis on research impact on the society/community.
