Awards and Grants


SIGMIS offers several awards to acknowledge the scholarly contributions of our members and colleagues. The DATA BASE journal recognizes the best paper of the year, the senior editor of the year, and reviewer of the year. SIGMIS also recognizes a lifetime achievement award recipient and an early career award recipient annually. The annual SIGMIS Magid Igbaria Outstanding Conference Paper of the Year Award and the best poster award are also awarded annually at the CPR conference.


SIGMIS also sponsors research on topics of interest to the IS/IT academic and practitioner communities. Research grants up to $3000 are available per proposal – ½ upon awarding of the grant and ½ upon completion of the project, delivery of a working paper for presentation at a SIGMIS – conference and inclusion in the conference proceedings.
