AIEST Conference

Exchange of views and experience

The annual conference provides opportunities to review developments with colleagues in an informal and friendly way, thus tightening long-lasting business networks. It is also a space occupied by modest experts helping you improve your research and/ or deal with practical challenges.

The thematic scope of the annual conference has been broadened to give researchers the possibility to present highly relevant research and to allow practitioners to provide an insight into innovative and successful business models and cases.

Target groups Academia and Practitioners

  • Academia, who are invited to present state-of-the-art research and who are willing to contribute from their scientific perspective to build an interdisciplinary body of knowledge.
  • Practitioners, who are invited to provide latest trends, concepts and cases and who may provide guidance with regard to prospective research questions.


3 different awards are going to be offered at the annual AIEST conference:

  • The AIEST Best Contribution Award for the overall best contribution at the conference
  • The Peter Keller Award for the best contribution uniting theory and practice
  • The AIEST PhD Award for the best academic contribution of a PhD candidate
