Greetings. We are writing to invite you to join as a member of a new
Special Interest Group of the Association for Information Systems 
(AIS) on the theme “Ontology-driven Information Systems” (SIG-ODIS) 
that is taking strong roots in our IS community.

The mission of SIG-ODIS is to create an awareness and research thrust 
in the area of computational ontologies in the IS discipline. Towards 
this end, SIG-ODIS will:

o       Provide a forum for collaboration and exchange in the theory 
and practice of computational ontologies strive to build bridges 
between the IS discipline and other information-related disciplines, 
such as computer science, information science, philosophy, 
linguistics, etc., that pursue research in the broad area of 
computational ontologies

o       Aim to develop awareness and foster research about the role 
and impacts of computational ontologies on the design, development, 
and management of business information systems

o       Aim to advance scientific research in specific application 
areas that can benefit from ontology-based techniques, such as 
integrative business systems, supply chains, semantic webs, 
bioinformatics database integration, medical information systems, etc.

More details about this SIG are available on the SIG-ODIS website at 

Further, a business meeting of SIG-ODIS is planned to be held on 
Friday, August 6 from 6:30 PM at Room Soho (7th floor - Marriott) 
during the AMCIS 2004 conference in New York and we would like to also 
invite you to attend this business meeting. More details about AMCIS 
2004 can be found

We look forward to your joining SIG-ODIS and to meeting with you at 
the SIG-ODIS business meeting. If you have any questions, please feel 
free to contact us

Best regards.

Rajiv Kishore, Ram Ramesh, Raj Sharman, Raghu Santanam, Ajay Vinze, 
and Hong Zhang
SIG-ODIS Executive Board
