Australasian Conference on Information Systems 2022

4-7 December, 2022

Hosted by the University of Melbourne

Submission

ACIS2022 invites academics, from Australasia and the wider world, to submit their research for the 2022 conference. We are calling for full papers and research-in-progress (RIP).

We invite the submission of original, unpublished work in English. All papers must be submitted through the ACIS2022 submission system.

All papers will be checked. Those not in compliance with the submission format will be automatically rejected, after which all compliant submissions will undergo a double-blind peer review process.

An author could submit a maximum of three papers to a single track or 5 across tracks.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION

Language: All papers must be written in English.

Originality: Papers submitted to ACIS2022 must be original, unpublished work not previously published in a journal or conference nor currently under review or consideration for publication or presentation elsewhere.

FULL RESEARCH PAPERS

Completed research papers should include all details of the research undertaken, including research method, data analyses, and results. These papers should be of the highest academic standard. Papers can be conceptual in nature, technical, design-oriented, or empirical. Empirical papers may report on research that is either quantitative, qualitative, or mixed methods. The maximum length for full research paper submissions is 10 pages:

  • Front page to include title, author details (only after review), abstract and keywords. This page does not count as part of the 10-page body of the paper.
  • Body of paper is 10 A4 pages (Georgia 10pt), including references and appendices.
  • Acknowledgements and Copyright statement can be added to a final page after review. This page does not count as part of the 10-page body of the paper.

All submissions must be in pdf format and must use the ACIS 2022 submission template. This template contains the full guidelines for formatting of all submissions.

Authors of accepted papers will need to address the review comments in the paper and to submit a response to reviewers table for each of the reviewer comments.

RESEARCH-IN-PROGRESS PAPERS

We equally encourage the submission of research-in-progress (RIP) papers. RIP papers present an interesting research topic that has not yet been (fully) investigated but that will be of interest to the IS community. These papers should include expected results/conclusions, but may lack actual results or may have only preliminary results. RIP papers are still expected to apply the same standards of academic rigour as is the case for full research papers. In particular, RIP papers are not unfinished research papers: it is the research itself that is unfinished RIP papers will be presented by the authors as posters in a dedicated session during the conference. The maximum length of Research-in-Progress papers is 6 pages:

Front page to include title, author details (only after review), abstract and keywords. This page does not count as part of the 6-page body of the paper.

Body of paper is 6 A4 pages (Georgia 10pt), including references and appendices.

Acknowledgements and Copyright statement can be added to a final page after review. This page does not count as part of the 6-page body of the paper.

All submissions must be in pdf format and must use the ACIS 2022 submission template. This template contains the full guidelines for formatting of all submissions.

Authors of accepted papers will need to address the review comments in the paper and to submit a response to reviewers table for each of the reviewer comments.

HOW TO SUBMIT

All submissions must be made via the ACIS2022 submission system.

Completed full research, short, and research-in-progress papers must be submitted to the conference track that best fits the topic area. ACIS2022 recognises that the list of tracks is not an exhaustive one – nonetheless, we ask that authors select the track that best fits the topic area. The Program Co-Chairs may then shift a submission from one track to another, as they deem appropriate. Papers that do not fit any specialist track should be submitted to the General Track.

Please note: no duplicated submissions to different tracks will be accepted.

All submissions must be in pdf format and must use the ACIS2022 submission template. This template contains the full guidelines for formatting of all submissions.

ANONYMISING FOR INITIAL REVIEW

As all submissions will be double-blind peer-reviewed, the author’s names(s) and affiliation(s) should not be included anywhere in the document for the initial submission. If referring to articles or documents by the same author(s), these should be removed from the text and reference list and replaced with “(removed for refereeing)”.

When using this template before the review process, you must also ensure that the remainder of the document contains no author information at all – not in the author/affiliation section above the abstract, the header, the copyright statement or in the document properties associated with the file.

As it places a significant administrative burden on the conference organisers to ensure that your paper does not identify you as an author, and as this is central to the integrity of the double-blind review process, failure to comply with these formatting requirements will result in rejection of your paper.

REVIEW PROCESS

All paper submissions will be pre-screened for conformity with the submission guidelines and overall appropriateness for the conference. Paper submissions that pass this initial screening will be evaluated in a double-blind peer-review process.
Each conference track is chaired by IS academics with research expertise in the respective area. The track chairs will supervise the review process, involving selected reviewers from the IS research community.

Acceptance and rejection decisions will be finalised by the Program Committee.

REVIEW CRITERIA

In general, the review criteria will be those typically used by major journals and conferences (eg, relevance of the topic, quality of the research process, contribution, etc). The results of the review process will be communicated to the author(s) by the specified date. The author(s) will be responsible for making the revisions recommended by the reviewers, and for submitting the final version of their paper by the appropriate deadline.

COMMITMENT TO PARTICIPATE IN THE CONFERENCE

At least one author of each accepted paper must register for the conference by the Early-bird Registration date and present the paper.
