We are very pleased to invite new MIS faculty to participate in the MIS Camp, which will be held at ESAN University on Thursday, August 12, 2010. Potential campers include IS members beginning their first, second or third year in an academic position in the fall of 2010. We trust MIS Camp sounds interesting for junior faculty members!
