Dr David Xu named as AIS Distinguished Member with Cum Laude designation

Dr David Jingjun Xu, Associate Professor of the Department of Information Systems, has received the honour of "Distinguished Member - Cum Laude" by the Association of Information Systems (AIS). His recognition in December 2020 is for significant impact and commitment to the association.

The honour is only given to those who have held continuous AIS membership for at least 10 years, served in a leadership role in AIS or AIS-related activity and have been published in at least four publications in an AIS or AISaffiliated journal.

"I am delighted to be recognised as an AIS Distinguished Member with Cum Laude designation. My thanks to the AIS's selection. I am also grateful to the College and the IS department for the generous support given to faculty to conduct research and make contributions to the field," said Dr Xu.

Dr Xu's research effort was also demonstrated by his recent accomplishments in the information systems field. In December 2020, Dr Xu received the Best Associate Editor Award at the International Conference of Information Systems (ICIS) for the "Digital Commerce and the Digitally Connected Enterprise" track. In addition, according to the AIS Research Rankings released in January 2021, Dr Xu is ranked the 4th most productive (the first-author count, tie) information systems scholar worldwide for publishing in the top-4 (and top-8) IS journals during the past ten years (2011-2020).

The College congratulates Dr Xu on his remarkable achievements.
