Dear KrAIS (Korean Association for Information Systems) members,

Welcome to KrAIS!
KrAIS is the Korean Chapter of AIS, which is “the premier professional association for individuals and organizations who lead the research, teaching, practice, and study of information systems worldwide.” We are offering this website as a platform for KrAIS members to share research activities, recruitment opportunities, experiences, and wisdom. We are particularly interested in training and the development of junior researchers in Information Systems. Our business activities include professional mentoring, paper development workshops, sharing good teaching practices, and networking event among others.

We would like to highlight two major initiatives of KrAIS.

The first one is the Annual Post ICIS KrAIS research workshops to be held in 2021 and 2022 during our tenure. The 2021 KrAIS research workshop will be held in Austin, Texas in December 2021. This annual workshop is a great venue for members to get early feedback on their research in a safe and friendly environment, make friends and mentors, share excellent IS teaching practices, and learn hint and tips to secure offers from future job opportunities. The series of the workshop always attract very positive feedbacks from members. Currently, Workshop Program Co-chairs are working hard to make the workshop enjoyable and memorable. In 2021, Hyeyoung Hah (Florida International University), Jae-Hong Park (Kyung Hee University), Gene Moo Lee (University of British Columbia) will serve as the workshop Program Co-Chairs. The program co-chairs are doing their best to reflect as many members' needs as possible in the design of the workshop this year. The ongoing COVID19 pandemic raises uncertainties on travelling to Austin but we are looking forward to seeing as many members as possible on the venue.

Secondly, we are continuing and strengthening the cooperation with the KMIS (The Korean Society of Management Information Systems). The Annual Post ICIS KrAIS research workshop is held in collaboration with KMIS and there is a dedicated track for KrAIS members in the KMIS Spring and Fall Conferences. 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. Those are examples of how two organizations are creating synergies based on their membership bases and we are planning to develop further opportunities in 2021 and 2022.

Lastly, your voice is utmost important for the sustainability of KrAIS and we will do our best to listen to your opinion through diverse channels. This website provides a bulletin board system in which members can communicate with the board members of KrAIS. Apart from that, there is a Facebook page of KrAIS, and you can also send emails to our board members using the contact information below.
