Submission types

Full papers must be completed research. Completed research papers will be submitted to one of the conference tracks, where they will be peer-reviewed using a double-blind system. Accepted papers will be presented face-to face at the conference in a session format. Each session will consist of three or four papers accepted through the review process. Most sessions employ a standard format of presentation by one of the authors and general audience discussion. Full papers must not exceed 10 pages (approx. 5,000 words not including Title page, References, Appendices, Acknowledgements and Copyright statement) and must conform to the ACIS 2024 submission template (available on the website). Full papers that are accepted will be published in their entirety in the conference proceedings.

Short papers are research in progress. Like completed research, short papers will be submitted to a mini track for double blind review. Upon acceptance, short papers will be presented by authors while interested participants gather to share ideas and discuss topics of mutual interest. Short papers must not exceed 5 pages (approx. 2,500 words, not including Title page, References, Appendices, Acknowledgements and Copyright statement) and must conform to the ACIS 2024 submission template.

Poster Slam submissions are early research that is in a conceptual stage, i.e. a research idea that is thorough but with no empirical or literature review data yet. This can be either a PhD proposal or a research idea to be tested from early career or established researchers. The session will consist of a 3-minute pitch per poster upfront and then the whole group will discuss the posters in detail within the session. Discussion and feedback are central to this format and will be constructive and intense. The submission requires an abstract of a maximum of 1,000 words and must conform to the ACIS 2024 submission template.

Workshops are typically partial- or full-day sessions that facilitate discussion and exploration of ideas, techniques, and methodologies that advance research, teaching knowledge of IS-related concepts, or products from industry and their application to academia, educational curricula, or industry practice. The call for proposals and template to be used will be available shortly.

Panels provide an opportunity for a group of researchers to explore a topical or contested topic of interest in a panel format. This will typically involve a panel moderator (who poses questions related to the topic) and three to four expert contributors who will offer alternative views on the topic. Panels should aim to draw an audience. Depending upon the topic, the experts can be drawn from the academy and/or from industry. The panel co-chairs encourage panel submitters to contact them and will work with them to develop provocative ideas into strong panel proposals. The call for proposals and template to be used will be available shortly.

Virtual paper presentations

ACIS 2024 IS A FACE-TO-FACE CONFERENCE. However, we recognize that there is still a great deal of uncertainty around travel and funding in many administrations. We will accept synchronous virtual presentations under special circumstances (tba). These may be organized into a “virtual track” rather than being interspersed with face-to-face sessions. Authors of accepted virtual presentation papers will be provided a platform for their work.
