From March 30 - April 1, AIS Student Chapter members from attend the AIS 2023 Student Chapter Leadership Conference hosted by Florida International University. In total there were 186 registrants (134 students and 52 faculty) representing 25 universities and 3 countries. Students participated in competitions, learned from women at Microsoft, hosted leadership workshops, and earned awards for their competition solutions. The competition judging committees represented both industry and academia.

“Our student chapter members demonstrated incredible creativity and professionalism during this year’s competitions,” shared AIS AVP of Student Chapters Alex Barsi Lopes. “The talent and hard work put into the solutions shows that the future of Information Systems is bright.”

For the Assurant Smart Cities Case Study, students were told to select a government institution of their choosing (city, town, or county, as examples), analyze an area where the government institution can improve using public documentation/data from a government institution to support their analysis, and offer recommendations for how smart city technologies can help address the challenges that a government institution faces.
