About Us

Association for Information Systems (AIS) Bangladesh.

The information systems (IS) field is relatively young in Bangladesh and growing quickly. AIS leaders in the country proactively established an AIS chapter to address the needs of local IS academics and professionals. AIS Bangladesh will contribute to the application of IS towards national-regional-local development in Bangladesh, develop locally relevant course material. AISB plans to eventually run training courses for academicians, policymakers, researchers, donor agencies, NGO workers, and local government officials involved with IS operation/study.

The Bangladesh IS community initially decided to form an AIS chapter in November 2012. The AIS Executive Committee approved the formation of AISB in April 2013. Membership will be open to all AIS members in good standing who either live or work in Bangladesh, or who have a special relationship to Bangladesh IS researchers or IS research institutions.
