The Symposium on Research in Systems Analysis and Design has the objective of promoting and developing high quality research on all issues related to systems analysis and design. The roots of the Symposium lie in the observation that, although systems analysis and design lie at the core of the Information Systems discipline, there is a notable shortage of research on these topics in the leading research journals in Information Systems.
In March 2002 and April 2003, researchers in the area of Systems Analysis and Design (SA&D) met in Miami to discuss the state of research in this area. Attendees formed the consensus that SA&D lies in the ‘core’ of the Information Systems (IS) discipline, and as a consequence, research examining aspects of SA&D should be an integral part of IS research. A proposal for an AIS SIG on Systems Analysis and Design was developed and approved by the AIS Council in December 2003. The inaugural event of SIGSAND was held in June 2004 at Memorial University of Newfoundland, Canada, followed by the fourth symposium held in April 2005 at the University of Cincinnati. The fifth symposium was jointly hosted by the University of British Columbia and Simon Fraser University in May 2006; the sixth by the University of Tulsa in 2007; followed by the seventh (2008) and eighth (2009) hosted by Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah and Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, Virginia. In 2010, it returned to Memorial University of Newfoundland in St. John’s, Newfoundland, Canada.
This year it will be held in Bloomington Indiana on June 3-4, 2011.
