  • Completed Research

    Completed research 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. Each session room is set up with presentation equipment (i.e., projectors and screens, bring your own tablet or laptop PC). Completed research papers must not exceed 10 pages all inclusive (approx. 5,000 words, including figures, tables, references, and appendices) and must conform to the AMCIS 2018 submission template. Full papers that are accepted will be published in their entirety in the conference proceedings.

  • Emergent Research Forum (ERF)

    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. Upon acceptance, ERF papers will be presented as posters by the authors during poster sessions that will take place throughout the conference in a series of Happy Hours or Coffee Hours associated with the SIGs. ERF papers must not exceed 5 pages all-inclusive (approx. 2,500 words, including figures, tables, references, and appendices) and must conform to the AMCIS 2018 submission template. Authors of accepted ERF papers may submit an abstract to be included in the proceedings or a revised paper.

    ERF authors are required to:

    1. Submit their ERF paper to a track/minitrack. Accepted ERF papers will be included in the AMCIS 2018 conference proceeding.
    2. If accepted, submit their posters using the AMCIS 2018 ERF Poster Format.
    3. Attend the Happy/Coffee Hours when their poster is on display.

  • 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 chair can work with panel submitters to help them develop provocative ideas into strong proposals.

  • Workshops and tutorials

    Workshops and tutorials are typically half- 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.

  • 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 to the closest relevant track. Proposals involving cross-SIG dialog or collaboration may be submitted to the “General Topics” track. Please be aware, each track is limited to only one PDS. Proposals can be quite brief, but should provide an outline sufficient for the track reviewer to be able to make a recommendation on its applicability, likelihood of drawing an audience, and suitability. Some indication of likely authors and presenters would be helpful. See the website for more details.

  • Technology Research, Education, and Opinion (TREO)

    Technology Research, Education, and Opinion (TREO) Talks
 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 provide the opportunity to submit a 1-page abstract of a research paper or research idea, an education paper or an idea related to IS education, or an opinion paper on any area of information technology. TREO Talks submissions will be editorially reviewed to ensure that they are IS related and appropriate in nature. Accepted TREO Talks abstracts will be presented at a TREO Talk session. Each TREO Talk author will present their topic, followed by a question and answer and discussion session with the audience.
