EDSIG is the Education Special Interest Group of AITP, the Association for Information Technology Professionals. EDSIG has been around a long time. It has had its ups and downs. For the past few years, EDSIG has existed primarily to manage and operate ISECON (the Information Systems Education Conference sponsored by FITE, the Foundation for Information Technology Education, formerly EF, the AITP Education Foundation) each year and to fund the publication of JISE, the Journal of Information Systems Education. Lately EDSIG has also taken to publishing ISEDJ, the online Information Systems Education Journal that specializes in republication in a journal format of the best articles from the Proceedings of ISECON. But what is EDSIG about, really? What benefits should it provide for its members? What should be its relationship with FITE? Should EDSIG even continue to exist, or should it spin off its assets and go quietly out of existence? These are questions that can be asked productively from time to time. The purpose of this workshop is to explore these questions.
