The Workshop on Information Systems and Economics (WISE) was celebrating its 20th Anniversary, December 14-15, 2009 in Phoenix (Arizona).
On December 3, 1989 the first Workshop was held at MIT Sloan School of Management in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Chris Kemerer (at that time at MIT) and Yannis Bakos (at that time at UC Irvine) were the organizers of the first workshop. They felt there was a need for (and here I quote from the first Call for Papers)“ a workshop addressing the use of theory and research methods from Economics to address theoretical and applied questions in the Information Systems discipline”. And there was a need. In these twenty years WISE sustained. It attracted 32 attendees 20 years ago and this week there were 134 attendees. This year we had excellent presentations and the workshop itself was extremely well organized by Yannis Bakos, Eric Clemons, Rob Kauffman, and Lorin Hitt. Thank you!
