International Conference on Research & Innovations in Information System, Johor Bahru, Malaysia





Grand Paragon Hotel
Johor Bahru, Johor, Malaysia

The continued rapid growth of information and communication technologies (ICT) has changed the way society and businesses behave. We have seen how computers, the Internet, mobile and technology influence the lives of people and the way companies conduct their activities. Today, the term “Digital Ecosystems” becomes the focus of discussion for the future of advanced ICT-based economy. It seeks to maximize the capacity of ICT to improve collaboration within the society and community.
The impact of ICT for the individual user, society and enterprises varies. These include the way in which these parties are behaving, making the transaction, and conducting business. Information Systems (IS) is the sub-field of computer science. It focuses mainly on the exploration and analysis of complex interrelationships between people and enterprises and challenges in establishing the ICT infrastructure for these entities. The extension of studies in IS also includes understanding the impact of ICT on society and businesses to meet their routine activities. Thus, it becomes a field that plays an important role in the revelation of important knowledge through research in the complex social and corporate behavior and development needs of ICT as a facilitator. Due to these reasons, the Department of Information Systems, School of Computer Science and Information Systems, Universiti Teknologi Malaysia has undertaken to organize the International Conference on Research and Innovation in Information Systems (ICRIIS’09) held in Johor, Malaysia December 8-9, 2009.

ICRIIS’09 is an international event is aimed at enabling researchers is the field from around the world to share their views of research, results and latest development of the concepts, theories and technologies to realize the usefulness ICT as a social support and activities of enterprises. We anticipate that there will be 150 participants for this event. Committee members and the participants are well known in their respective areas of competence. Therefore, it is a great opportunity to be part of ICRIIS’09.
