Members of the institute regularly attend the AIS conferences, in particular, the International and European Conferences on Information Systems.

This involves the promotion of teaching, research, and networking. Since 2015, Prof. Dr. Jan vom Brocke serves as vice president.

The ERCIS network links world-class Information Systems departments, not only from European but also from non-European universities, and promotes interdisciplinary research projects, exchange at the international level, and joint lectures and seminars.
