The Impact of Artificial Intelligence on Business and Society

ICTO 2019 is the fifth version of ICTO international conference that attracts multidisciplinary contributions on information systems from the areas of organization, management, marketing, human resources, accounting, and supply chain mainly submitted by international scholars.

ICTO2019 is characterized by its friendly atmosphere that offers scholars the opportunity for high quality discussion and feedback, valuable networking opportunities both within the academic community and the international IS Community.

Conference scope


Today, Artificial  Intelligence is shaping human activity in organizations and in society.

But,  what do we know about their design, their usage, and their impact?  

This conference is concerned with these Information Systems, shedding light on how they are, and how they will be understood, adopted, implemented, adapted, and used within organizations and more generally, within the society as a whole.

The main focus will be on how actors understand the potential of Artificial Intelligence (AI) to support organizational activities and hence how they adopt and adapt these technologies to achieve their goals.


We are interested in different areas of the organization's strategy through new business models, competitive strategies, knowledge management, etc. Specific areas are concerned such as marketing, human resource management, project management, operation management, innovation management, etc.
