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 at: http://howe.stevens.edu/amcis2004/

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 at sigodis@asu.edu. 

Best regards.

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