Dear KrAIS (Korean Association for Information Systems) members,

It is our great pleasure to welcome you at a new website for KrAIS. This new website is intended to be a platform for KrAIS members to share information, experiences, and wisdom. As co-presidents of KrAIS, we would like to take this opportunity to share with you two initiatives of KrAIS.

The first one is the Annual Post ICIS KrAIS research workshop. The 2019 KrAIS research workshop will be held in Munich on December 18, 2019. This annual workshop is a great venue for members to make friends and share information and wisdom. Personally, we really like this workshop because we are able to find many friends, mentors, and co-authors at these annual workshops. Currently, Workshop Program Co-chairs are working hard to make the workshop enjoyable and memorable. Workshop Program Co-Chairs are DongBack Seo at Chungbuk National University, Korea; Min-Seok Pang, Temple University, USA; and Younghoon Chang, Beijing Institute of Technology, China. We have been flexible to accommodate members' needs. For example, members have the option to present their papers in Korean or in English and to publish only an abstract rather than a full proceeding or an extended abstract (in order to prevent potential copyright issues with journals, such as Decision Support Systems). We look forward to seeing many of you in Munich.

The second initiative is cooperation with KMIS (Korean Society of Management Information Systems). As you may know, KMIS has helped KrAIS in many ways for mutual benefit. For example, KMIS was supportive to include a KrAIS track in KMIS spring and fall conferences so that more KrAIS members could have the opportunity to visit Korea and exchange ideas with scholars in Korea. On the other hand, many KrAIS members are involved in the operation of APJIS (Asia Pacific Journal of Information Systems), a flagship journal of KMIS, which has recently been indexed in Scopus. We hope to continue to enhance this relationship.

Lastly, we promise that we will do our best to make KrAIS open to members' suggestions. If you have any ideas or suggestions, please do not hesitate to discuss them with our executive team. Our executive team is:

Gee-Woo Bock (박기우), Sungkyunkwan University, Co-President, gwbock@gmail.com
Dongmin Kim (김동민), University of New Brunswick, Co-President, dongmin@unb.ca
Sung-Byung Yang (양성병), Kyung Hee University, Secretary, sbyang@khu.ac.kr
Eun Ju Jung (정은주), George Mason University, Treasurer, ejung6@gmu.edu
Gunwoong Lee (이건웅), Sungkyunkwan University, Communication, gwlee@skku.edu

Thank you and best regards,
Gee-Woo Bock and Dongmin Kim
Co-Presidents of KrAIS
