Overview of the research area
The underlying motivation of this track is to expose the present state of information system (IS) development and implementation in the region. The research area falls under IS in developing nations, particularly those nations within Southeast Asia. These nations will include the newly emerging economies such as Indonesia and Vietnam.
While the developed regions have been moving expeditiously towards superior knowledge society, a huge part of Southeast-Asia are still struggling with their economies, political affairs and human resources while neglecting their IS development and implementation needs, say in the Internet-related technologies (i.e., cloud computing) thus threatening the future of new generations’ ability to be significantly better-off and compete.
Despite the fact that there are many difficulties in bringing-up the IS development and implementation right up to the expected speed, we still believe that IS will become a powerful tool for the regional development as it can be widely employed for the professional development of human resources.
The exemplar topics may include complete and research-in-progress papers on the challenges and issues facing cloud computing development and implementation, system integration, technology gap (digital divide), etc. which ‘re directly on indirectly related to the region
