Welcome to the ECIS 2015 Blog!

Fri, 2014-10-17 14:08

You may think that conference websites are rather functional and dull. You may think that there are already too many academic blogs online. You may even think that coming to Münster is not worth the effort considering your shortage of time and numerous other beautiful places around the world. Despite what you may think, it is now half a year until ECIS 2015 in Münster opens its gates. And yes, we are so excited about this that we feel a need to share it with everybody! If we manage to change your mind in any of the above-mentioned thoughts, our mission will be accomplished! Today we introduce two new areas on our website that will hopefully express our excitement in words and pictures: This blog and the “Treasure of the Week” (ToW).

The ToW (yes, that’s the official acronym) will provide you with the insider tips you won’t find in any travel guide. We forced kindly asked our research assistants at the European Research Center for Information Systems (ERCIS) to share with you their favourite places in and around Münster. Their hints will be collected in the ToW section of this website from now on and until the Conference starts.

This blog will be regularly updated with new stories about ERCIS, Münster, and research in Germany and Europe. Thus, we will offer a look “behind the sc(i)en(c)es” of ECIS 2015. Blog posts will be concise, as we know that researchers have to read tons of other stuff. Moreover, we would like to invite the whole community to contribute to this blog! So if you have any relation to Münster and would like to post something to this blog, please send your thoughts to and we will be happy to publish it! We will work a bit on the layout and the functionality to add comments, but it's not gonna last as long as BER...

Together, the ToW’s and this blog will give you the opportunity to make the most out of your stay in Münster. Promise!
