In the past, computer-based information systems have been designed primarily for hierarchically structured organizations, reinforcing a single unified world view. This has been reflected in the design methods such as validity and consistency checking, information systems architecture, and information system use theories. Alternative organizational structures such as clans, network organizations, inter-organizational alliances and markets have different requirements, thus necessitating the emergence of a new perspective in information systems. As we develop information systems in the future, we must think of the user no longer as an individual but as a community. Fifteen excellent papers from the many interesting submissions are included in these proceedings along with four invited papers by leading representatives in the field. Also included are the briefing notes for four provocative panel discussions.
