Midwest United States Association for Information Systems 4th Annual Conference
MWAIS 2009
May 22-23, 2009
Madison, South Dakota

The 4th annual conference of the Midwest AIS will be held on May 22-23, 2009 in Madison, South Dakota. The goal of the conference is to provide a venue for academics and practitioners in the Midwest United States who wish to be involved with the Association for Information Systems on a smaller scale than the large international conferences. MWAIS 2009 will provide an intimate environment to facilitate the sharing of ideas on pedagogy and research within a small and social setting.

The theme of the conference will be "Information Technology in Services Industry". The conference theme would be reinforced through panel discussions, and conference keynote.
