ICIS 2017 Call for Submissions

We invite submissions in all areas of IS research, and particularly encourage those related to the conference theme “Transformation Society with Digital innovation.” The purpose of this conference is to provide a platform for academics and practitioners to identify and explore the issues, opportunities, and solutions that promote IT convergence and find new business and societal value from IT.

Research tracks include:

Completed research papers are full-length papers documenting the results of finished research projects. Accepted completed research papers will be presented at ICIS 2017, and published in the conference proceedings.

Short paper submissions are also encouraged. Short papers build on promising but incomplete research projects that will benefit from the feedback of other ICIS participants. Accepted short papers will be presented in a slam session, followed by a poster session at ICIS 2017. They are published in the conference proceedings.

Paper-a-thon is a new submission category where you bring your data, theory, knowledge of a phenomenon, methodological or good writing skills to write a paper during the conference. At ICIS 2017, you will join others with complementary resources to brainstorm, write up, and pitch new paper ideas. Supported by mentors, you will have 24 hours to write an extended outline of your paper. If editors would select your paper as one of the top three finalists, you will further develop it during the conference to present on the last day of ICIS 2017. The paper will be considered for fast-track review for the Journal of AIS.

Panel proposals should be submitted to the Panels track.

Teaching cases should be submitted to the IS Curriculum and Education track.

Submissions to ICIS 2017 must be original; submissions cannot have been published or accepted in a journal or conference proceedings, nor presented at another conference. Further, submissions must not be concurrently under consideration for publication or presentation elsewhere.

Important dates:

Submission deadline: May 5, 2017 11:59 pm International Dateline West (UTC-12:00) Fiji time

Notification of submission decision: August 7, 2017

Notification of final paper accepted: September 22, 2017

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.
