Professor Roger Clarke, an Adjunct Professor in RSCS, has been elected as a Fellow of the Association for Information Systems (AIS), the premier Information Systems society.
Roger was one of only 6 Fellows elected worldwide at the December 2012 International Conference on Information Systems (ICIS) held in Atlanta, GA.
The AIS Fellow Award, established in 1999, is an award recognising individuals who have made outstanding contributions to the information systems discipline in terms of research, teaching, and service. An AIS Fellow is also expected to have made both significant global and local contributions to the discipline.
“AIS Fellow awardees have distinguished themselves as role models to colleagues and students, and are highly esteemed for their high levels of professional and personal contribution to the field,” said AIS President Doug Vogel. “Professor Roger Clarke clearly demonstrates these qualities and we congratulate him on receiving this high honor.”
Roger's award recognises over 40 years contribution to the IT profession across many areas of information systems, but notably eBusiness, information infrastructure, privacy and dataveillance much of this more recently through his own consultancy company Xamax Consultancy. He holds an ANU Doctorate and spent 11 years as a Reader in Information Systems at ANU (1984-1995).
Previous recipients of an AIS Fellowship include Prof Shirley Gregor from CBE.
