Building on the successes of the first and second CSWIM meetings, CSWIM 2009 will take place in Guangzhou, China. It will be hosted by Sun Yat-Sen University, which is a top university in China. Guangzhou is a major tourist city in southern China, close to Hong Kong, and has easy access from many other cities in China, Asia-Pacific, and the United States.
 
The purpose of the CSWIM is to create a bridge to promote lively exchanges between scholars in China and other countries in the area of information systems and management. In particular, CSWIM focuses on creating a unique experience for IS researchers around the world who would like to communicate and collaborate with China-based scholars, and to study how information systems and technologies affect individuals, businesses, organizations, and societies. In the past two workshops, close to 100 participants attended each conference, representing most of the top IS programs in North America, China, and Asia.
 
We invite submissions of original research papers addressing issues concerning the theory, design, development, evaluation, and application of information systems and management. As a research workshop, we encourage submissions of research-in-progress that are innovative and thought-provoking.
