This follows a recent argument he had with a journalist on Twitter.
The left-handed opening batsman criticised News Limited journalist Malcolm Conn in an expletive-filled tirade.
Cricket Australia said in a statement on Sunday that Warner had been charged because of "unbecoming behaviour, regarding comments posted on his Twitter account".
Conn had been critical of Warner's time with the IPL, following a bad run of form in India where Australia was heavily beaten in a Test series.
Conn, who works for the Sydney Telegraph, tweeted: "You lose 4-0 in India, don't make a run, and you want to be tickled on the tummy? Win the Ashes and get back to me."
Warner responded by using some bad language and advised the reporter to 'encourage Australian players not bag them'.
To which Conn retorted: "Cricket is a real job? Please. Most people pay to play. Million dollar cricketers milking the IPL are hardly the best judges."
Wednesday's hearing will take place via a teleconference, as Warner is currently with Delhi Daredevils in the Indian Premier League.
Cricket Australia has charged Warner for allegedly breaching Rule 6 that states: "Players and officials must not at any time engage in behaviour unbecoming to a representative player or official that could bring them or the game of cricket into disrepute or harmful to the interests of cricket. This rule applies at all times where the unbecoming behaviour involves the player being involved in public comment or comment to or in the media."
