The ACPHIS PhD Medal is awarded annually for the best Australian PhD thesis in the discipline of Information Systems. Each submitted thesis is reviewed by the ACPHIS Doctoral Thesis Award Selection Committee, comprising of two leading Australian Information Systems researchers and the ACPHIS Doctoral Award Medal Convenor. The selected thesis must, in the opinion of the ACPHIS Doctoral Thesis Award Selection Committee, address an important issue in the Information Systems field, and exhibit the potential for a paper to be published in a high-quality journal. The medal along with a $2,000 cash prize is awarded by the ACPHIS Executive at the annual Australasian Conference on Information Systems (ACIS) conference.
