In 2014, the AIS Council formed a Task Force to develop a proposal for an AIS Grand Vision Project that aims to address the risks and side effects associated with ICT such as privacy, cyber-attacks, gaming addiction, fraud and cyber-crimes, global warming, sustainability, etc. As first steps, AIS leadership agreed to organize panels on this topic at AIS conferences and launch a special issue with JAIS. The Bright ICT Initiative aims to design an ICT-enabled "bright" future through globallycoordinated, funded research programs in partnership with academia, industry, government, and international organizations. The scope of the initiative encompasses the development of relevant technologies, business models, public policies, international agreements, standards, and metrics. Given that the proposed AIS Grand Vision Project is still in an early stage, our panel aims to stimulate further discussion on it in order to raise awareness within our community, build community consensus about its plans and objectives, and propose effective approaches to realizing the Vision. All AIS members are invited and urged to play a role in the project, and this panel provides one opportunity to learn how to get involved.
