Track Description:

This track promotes IS/IT/MIS research in and about Latin America. Latin America makes up a large part of the Americas and its population speaks primarily Spanish or Portuguese. ACMIS is a conference in English for the Americas.  To bridge this gap, this track opens a space for rigorous and high-quality research that is written in Spanish or Portuguese while also accepting papers in English that bring together IS/IT/MIS research and Latin America.

Any IS/IT/MIS paper that could be accepted in other AMCIS tracks but that it could not be reviewed there because it is written in Spanish or Portuguese is a reasonable submission for this Track.  Additionally, papers written in English that specifically study Latin America are also welcome here.

Accepted papers will be presented and published in the language they were submitted. Papers in Spanish or Portuguese should also include a copy of the title and abstract in English. Authors will have the option (but not the requirement) to send an English translation of the final paper that will be published alongside the Spanish or Portuguese version.
