The social, intellectual and institutional goals of IDIS are personal networking of Bavarian Information System (IS) doctoral students, scientific exchange across working group boundaries and the encouragement of joint projects.

The healthy and necessary plurality of topics, theories, and methods in business informatics often makes it difficult, alongside the unavoidable specialization of researchers, to become familiar with developments that are also important for our individual work at an early stage. Furthermore, addressing larger, more relevant questions demands the recombination of different concepts, theories and methods.

In this context, IDIS would like to support the intellectual progression of the Bavarian IS doctoral and post-doctoral students and thereby also provide impulses to jointly represent IS in research and society in the best possible way and to strengthen the pluralistic identity and visibility of the community.
