================================================================================
August 25-27, 2009, in Saint John, New Brunswick, Canada


We are pleased to announce that the annual World Congress on the Management of e-Business conference organized by McMaster University?s eBusiness Research Centre (MeRC) and the annual Privacy, Security and Trust conference (PST) organized by the University of New Brunswick (UNB) in cooperation with the National Research Council of Canada Institute for Information Technology (NRC-IIT) are coming together in 2009 to host a joint conference August 25-27, 2009, in Saint John, New Brunswick, Canada. This joint event will operate as the 2009 World Congress on Privacy, Security, Trust and the Management of e-Business. We will publish joint proceedings in cooperation with IEEE under this name.

The 2009 joint conference will be the 9th annual World Congress on the Management of e-Business and the 7th annual PST conference. The 2009 event will feature seven theme areas:

- Privacy (program chair: David Townsend, University of New Brunswick)
- Security (program chair: Nur Zincir-Heywood, Dalhousie University)
- Trust (program chair: Andrew Patrick, NRC Institute for Information Technology)
- eHealth (program chair: Norm Archer, McMaster University)
- HCI (program chair: Milena Head, McMaster University)
