Call for Papers

We invite the submission of Full (completed) Research Papers; Emergent Research Forum (ERF) papers; Workshops and Tutorials; Panels; Professional Development Symposia (PDS); and Technology Research, Education, and Opinion (TREO) Talks to the 23rd Americas Conference on Information Systems (AMCIS 2017), which will be held August 10-12, 2017 in Boston, MA. AMCIS brings together academics and industry professionals around the world to exchange knowledge related to the AMCIS 2017 theme, A Tradition of Innovation.

A Tradition of Innovation, reflects the conference committee’s desire to strengthen and build consensus in existing research streams, while also taking on innovative theoretical or methodological challenges and exploring emerging technology opportunities.  Together, we will create an exciting program that draws upon the best of SIG-driven AMCIS traditions and provides many opportunities for participation, collaboration, and dialogue. We look forward to gathering with you in Boston to strengthen our roots and expand our opportunities in information systems, the digital economy and beyond.

Scholarly Integrity

Please note that all AMCIS submissions must comply with the policies posted on the AMCIS 2017 website. Scholarly integrity is a core value in our discipline. Scholars submitting papers to this conference thereby attest that they have read the AIS Code of Research Conduct; and the work submitted is in accordance with the Code in all appropriate respects. Editors of AMCIS conference proceedings who receive allegations of plagiarism or other scholarly misconduct may inform the AIS President who may refer the matter, at his/her discretion, to the AIS Research Conduct Committee.

Authorship cannot change after the original submission. At least one author of each submission must attend AMCIS and present the work. If a submission is accepted but not presented by an author, it will be removed from the program.

Authors must be able to present on any day of the conference – the program cannot be tailored around specific requests from individual authors to present on particular days.

Journal Publication

The AIS Policy on Conference and Journal Publication encourages conference papers to be published in journals. This policy applies to AIS conferences (there are no copyright issues to prevent your AIS conference paper from being published in any journal (AIS or not)), and to AIS journals (there are no restrictions preventing you from submitting your conference paper to an AIS journal). Many non-AIS journals have similar policies, so you can submit your AIS conference paper to them. The policy and list of non-AIS journals with similar policies, is available at the Policy page.
