The 17th Annual MWAIS Conference will be held in person on May 16-17, 2022. Sponsored by the AIS MWAIS chapter, the conference is hosted by the University of Nebraska Omaha's College of Information Science & Technology.

The conference is open for registration! Please consider attending this regional conference as a delegate. An amazing program for conference delegates is in the process of being finalized. It is also a great professional development activity for teachers, university academics, and business/technology managers alike.
