Summary "This volume contains the papers presented at the Information Systems Foundations Workshop, 27-28 September, 2006. The workshop was the fourth in a series, begun in 1999 by Kit Dampney at Macquarie University and continued biennially from 2002 at The Australian National University (ANU), focussing on the theoretical foundations of the discipline of information systems. The workshop immediately followed the annual Australian Council of Professors and Heads of Information Systems (ACPHIS) workshop also held at the ANU. The theme of the 2006 Workshop was 'Theory, Representation and Reality' and it once again allowed researchers and practitioners in the field of information systems to come together to discuss some of the fundamental issues relating to our discipline. Information systems is still a quite young field of study that, perhaps uniquely, is a peculiar juxtaposition of the technological, in the form of computing and communication technology artifacts, and the non-technological, in the form of the humans and organisations that design, implement and use systems built with that technology."--Provided by publisher.
