LAIS is the premier academic association for individuals and organizations who lead the research, teaching, practice, and study of information systems, e-business, e-commerce, and e-Marketing in Lebanon.
Dear LAIS member,
On behalf of my colleagues Pr. Mallah and Mr. Osta, I would like to thank Pr. Aoun for the trust in appointing us as the members of the election committee; and we would like to inform you that we are glad to fulfill such a privileged task that enhances the democratic role of our association.
As for the election date, it will be announced in our next meeting in November; however, as per Section 3 of the Article V of the LAIS Bylaws (www.lebaneseais.com/lais-bylaws ), which states that: “A Nominations and Election Committee chaired and selected by the Immediate Past President shall seek and nominate at least one candidate for each Officer and Director position to be filled on the Executive Board no later than 30 days prior to the annual election. Nominations may also be made by any member eligible to vote by sending the name of the nominee to the Election Committee no later than 30 days prior to the annual election providing the nominee has given prior consent”, and in order not to fall in any violation of the above article concerning deadlines, I would like to ask all those who are interested in declaring a nomination for the position of the president-elect to send their declaration of candidacy as soon as possible and before November 9; this is because we want to avoid any deadline violation if elections was decided to be on December.
Further, I would like to remind you that only those whose AIS membership is still valid can participate in the election process. You may follow this link to renew your AIS membership: https://aisnet.org/general/register_member_type.asp
N.B. Please find below the declaration of candidacy form.

THE LEBANESE CONFERENCE ON INFORMATION SYSTEMS 2017
Advancing business innovations, competitiveness, and progressiveness: the role of ICT towards smart organizations
The Association for Information Systems (AIS: http://aisnet.org) chapter in Lebanon LAIS: http://www.lebaneseais.com), together with the Lebanese American University (LAU: www.lau.edu.lb) is organizing the Lebanese Conference on Information Systems (LCIS 2017) at LAU NY Headquarters in New York and at LAU campus in Beirut.
Underdevelopment, insecurity, poverty, inequality, and immigration are major problems faced by developing countries. Since 2000, international donor agencies have been encouraging the usage of ICT in order to reduce the impact of these complex social problems. Today, much has been done. Some researchers have reported practices that could lead to socio-economic development, improve people’s life, and install a kind of a new emerging democracy. Indeed, according to some scholars, when correctly implemented, these technologies transform governments by boosting transparency and accountability (Subhajit Basu, 2004), cutting out the middleman, connecting the excluded (Heeks, 2010), and helping the agency of women which is of strong effect on development through entrepreneurship (Heeks and Shoba, 2010). The introduction of the digital production is known to enable collective power and crowdvoicing by allowing the growth of social outsourcing and social enterprises and leading towards smarter organizations, smarter cities and smarter countries.
The aim of LCIS 2017 is to illustrate some of the issues related to ICT for development and advancing business innovations, competitiveness, and progressiveness towards smarter cities, while keeping in mind the differences and similarities among developing countries. We also encourage multi- or inter-disciplinary research.

The Lebanese Association for Information Systems (LAIS) will serve the IS faculty in Lebanon through the advancement of knowledge and the promotion of excellence in the practice and study of information systems, e-business, e-commerce and e-Marketing. This chapter is the first academic information systems association of its kind in Lebanon and will provide members with a connection to other AIS chapters around the Mediterranean.
LAIS will offer its members a variety of resources, including adapted seminars, trainings and joint projects. Additionally, members will have access to the latest jobs from top Lebanese universities, as well as private placement services offered through the Lebanese Conference for Information Systems.
“Forming a Lebanese Chapter is an important step, and one that will help to foster the study of, and research into information systems in Region 2 of AIS (Europe, the Middle East, and Africa) by offering synergy between several other AIS chapters already established in this complex and critical region,” said Kendall.
