Types of Submissions & Instructions

  • Full Papers

    Full papers must describe completed research. Completed research papers will be submitted to a conference mini-track where they will be peer-reviewed using a double-blind system and presented in a session format. Each session will consist of three or four competitive papers accepted through the review process. Sessions employ a standard format of presentation by an author and general audience discussion. Full papers must not exceed 10 pages (approx. 5,000 words) and must conform to the AMCIS 2022 camera-ready submission template. Full papers that are accepted will be published in their entirety in the conference proceedings and at least one author will need to present their paper during the conference. Best papers from each track will be highlighted in the conference program and will be published in the “Best Paper Proceedings.”

  • Emergent Research Forum Papers

    Emergent Research Forum (ERF) papers give authors the ability to present and receive feedback on research-in-progress or research ideas. Like completed research, ERF papers will be submitted to a mini-track for double-blind review. ERF papers must not exceed 5 pages all-inclusive (including figures, tables, references, and appendices) and must conform to the AMCIS 2022 camera-ready submission template. ERF authors are required to submit their ERF paper to a track/mini-track. Accepted ERF papers will be included in the AMCIS 2022 conference proceedings and at least one author will need to present their ERF paper during the conference. All ERF papers will be judged on the merit of the research idea, study plan, and potential implications for research and practice.  Each ERF presentation session will consist of about four papers. Presentations are limited to 10 minutes plus 5 minutes for discussion.

  • Workshops

    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.

    AMCIS 2022 Workshops Call for Proposals

    In keeping with the AMCIS 2022 theme, “Innovative Research Informing Practice”, our special focus for this conference is to recruit workshops that focus on the innovative use of information technology in industry and academia.

  • Professional Development Symposia (PDS)

    Professional Development Symposia (PDS).

    Professional Development Symposia (PDS) offer the opportunity for creative, multi-way conversations, and have the potential to offer a positive impact on the professional development of participants from different regions, SIGs, chapters, career stages, or demographic backgrounds. The PDS chairs encourage anyone interested in organizing a PDS to submit a proposal – these proposals can be SIG-related, cross-SIG, or designed for a general audience.

    In keeping with the AMCIS 2022 theme, “Innovative Research Informing Practice,” we are looking for submissions that will further our ability to develop welcoming, inclusive environments that in turn leverage all of our talents to produce research at the cutting-edge of practice. We encourage sessions that exchange ideas about novel approaches for exploring ideas most relevant to the IS practice community. Previous PDS topics have included novel research methods, emerging industry domain knowledge, and empowering academic work practices.

    Proposals are brief, but should provide an outline sufficient for the track reviewers to make a recommendation on its applicability, likelihood of drawing an audience, and suitability. To propose a PDS session, download and complete the linked form: PDS proposal form. Submit the completed form via https://new.precisionconference.com/user/login?society=ais and select PDS as the submission type.

    Important Dates:

    • April 15, 2022 5:00 pm EST, Deadline for proposal submission
    • May 9, 2022, Notification of acceptance

  • Panels

    Panels provide an opportunity for a group of researchers to explore a topic or focus of interest in a panel format, typically involving a panel moderator (who poses several questions related to the topic) and three to four expert contributors with alternative views or perspectives on the topic. Depending upon the topic, the experts can be drawn from the academy and/or from industry. Of particular interest are panel submissions that are related to the conference theme, although panel proposals on other relevant topics are also welcome. The panel chairs can work with panel submitters to help them develop provocative ideas into strong proposals. Panel proposal should be submitted via the AMCIS submission system at: https://new.precisionconference.com/amcis22e/

    Panel submissions should conform the AMCIS 2022 Panel Template.

  • Technology Research, Education, and Opinion (TREO)

    Technology Research, Education, and Opinion (TREO)

    Technology Research, Education, and Opinion (TREO) sessions will provide attendees a platform to present their research ideas, education papers, or opinion papers that cover any area of information systems (IS) or information technology (IT) and get feedback from session attendees. The TREO Talk sessions will provide the opportunity to submit a research idea, an education paper, an idea related to IS education, or an opinion paper on any area of information technology. Authors of accepted TREO Talks abstracts will be invited to record a five-minute presentation. The presentations will be curated thematically on the conference website. During the conference, TREO Talk authors will participate in virtual round-table discussions to discuss their research ideas with the audience.

    TREO submissions are in the form of a one-page abstract (approx. 500 words) that will be editorially reviewed to ensure that they are IS/IT related, appropriate in nature, and of sufficient quality. Submissions will be considered for the “Editors’ Choice” award based on originality, potential impact, and contribution. The audience will be invited to nominate presentations for the “People’s Choice” awards. “Editors’ Choice” and “People’s Choice” awarded abstracts will be highlighted in the conference proceeding.
