The AIM conference encourages the sharing of knowledge, exploration of new ideas, and discussion of similarities and differences within a friendly environment. This year it is organized in coordination with the town of La Rochelle to address the mutual interests of the town and region with the theme of Â« Information Systems and Sustainable Development: Double Fertilization â€“ From Myth to Reality Â». This theme poses questions of the contribution of the discipline of IS to researchers and practitioners, and the theories, methodologies, practices, and propositions, particularly in light of todayâ€™s rising need for attention to ecology to sustain the environment for tomorrowâ€™s generations.
This conference presents an opportunity for academics interested in information technologies to forge the way forward toward a green environment using IT and (green IT 1.0 Vs 2.0). This greening includes the minimization of energy usage in the development, processing, storage, and diffusion of information. Similarly, it includes minimizing the impact on the environment of equipment, research, and systems throughout their life cycle including development and recycling. The conference will encourage IT and IS thinking to merge their behaviors along similar vectors to become green resulting in less travel, less consumption of products, less production, responsible procedures, and other ecological practices.
The arrival of the digital generation, navigating between â€œangÃ©lismeâ€ (cloud computer, smart â€œtraumatismeâ€ (information technology paradox), confronts both the enhanced quality of the offer (machines, research, band width, security, ergonomics, etc.) and the necessary demand for environmental responsibility. From this emerges a new digital orientation toward the development of maintainable and green systems and technology.
