Associate Professor Kai Larsen and Assistant Professor David Eargle, along with Provost Distinguished Research Professor David Gefen from Drexel University and Professor Stacie Petter from Baylor University, received the Best Paper Award by the Association of Information Systems Americas Conference (AMCIS) for 2020. The award was announced at the annual Americas' Conference on Information Systems (AMCIS) in August.

Selected as the top paper among 450 accepted papers, Larsen, Eargle, Geffen and Petter’s research "Creating Construct Distance Maps with Machine Learning: Stargazing Trust" is credited for taking a “first step towards creating an objective, semi-automated, numeric-based tool to develop nomological maps as graphical aids for literature reviews.”

The annual Americas' Conference on Information Systems (AMCIS) is hosted by the Association for Information Systems. The conference attracts leading IS academicians from around the world and is viewed as one of the premier information systems conferences in the Western Hemisphere.

Congratulations to professors Larsen, Eargle, Geffen and Petter.
