The ICIS 2013 Program Committee invites submissions across 21 tracks, including our theme track: "Reshaping Society Through Information Systems Design".
There are Four Types of Submissions:
English is the language of the conference and of all submissions.
Submissions to ICIS 2013 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 currently under consideration for publication or presentation elsewhere.
All submissions must be in Microsoft® Word .DOC format, Microsoft® Word .DOCX format, or Adobe PDF format, and must use the submission template provided on the ICIS 2013 website. Files submitted in other formats or that do not use this template will not be considered for review.
Authors enter the submission title, abstract, keywords, and author information in the menus prompted by ScholarOne. The body of the submission (text, figures, tables, and references) should be stored in one single file and must use the submission template provided on the ICIS 2013 website. Any submission that deviates from the formatting requirements will be rejected without review.
Each type of submission (completed research papers, research-in-progress papers, teaching cases, and panels) has specific page length requirements. See Additional requirements specific to each type of submission. Any submission that exceeds page length limits will be rejected without review.
How to Submit:
All submissions are to be made via the ICIS 2013 submission system at ScholarOne’s ManuscriptCentral. After creating an account and logging on to the ScholarOne site, the authors should go to "Author Center" to submit their completed research paper, research-in-progress paper, teaching case, or panel proposal. For detailed instructions on how to submit in ScholarOne, please see the Author Submission Instructions for ScholarOne.
For Author Submission Instructions for ScholarOne, please click here.
Please note that once a manuscript has been submitted to the online submission system it CANNOT be altered, amended, changed, corrected, edited, or revised. Once a submission has been made, it is final. One can, however, upload a manuscript and then wait to actually submit it. Such manuscripts can be altered and re-uploaded until they are submitted. To be considered for ICIS 2013, manuscripts must be actually submitted by the deadline listed above.
Track and Type:
When submitting online, you must select a track and a paper type (completed research paper, research-in-progress paper, teaching case, or panel proposal). If your paper seems suitable for more than one track, please submit it to the one track where you deem the paper would make the most important contribution. Under no circumstances should the same paper be submitted to more than one track. See the list of tracks at: Tracks.
Number and Order of Authors:
After initial submission, authors cannot be added to or deleted from completed research papers, research-in-progress papers, or teaching cases. Panel proposers should be aware that Panel Track or Program Chairs may suggest changes in the slate of presenters for panels.
All figures and illustrations must be inserted into your Word .DOC or Word .DOCX file as either JPG or GIF format (other formats or embedded graphic objects will not convert to PDF correctly). For more instructions regarding figures, please see submission template.
Track Changes Feature must be Off:
Be certain to accept all changes and turn track changes “off” before uploading your paper to the ICIS 2013 Review System.
Anonymize Completed Research Papers, Research-in-Progress Papers, and Teaching Cases for Blind Review:
Authors name(s) should not appear in the body of the paper (including the abstract). Eliminate references to your institutions, your sponsors, your unpublished work and your published work if these references will identify any author. To aid in making your paper anonymous, leave Acknowledgement blank until the final version is prepared for the Proceedings. Remove author and institution information from document properties. To do this in MS-Word, click on Tools>>Options and then click on the Security tab. Under Privacy Options, select "Remove personal information from file properties on save." Panel proposal submissions do not have to be made anonymous for blind review.
Completed Research Papers, Research-in-Progress Papers and Teaching Cases will be prescreened for conformity with submission guidelines and for overall appropriateness for the conference. Papers that pass the initial screening processes will be double-blind reviewed. Panel submissions will not be blind reviewed.
For all papers accepted into ICIS 2013, authors of accepted papers will retain copyright. However, by submitting a paper, authors do agree that AIS can publish and reproduce any accepted papers in the ICIS 2013 Proceedings in the format of AIS' choosing (CDs, e-Library and printed proceedings) under an established ISBN number for ICIS 2013.
In addition to the general submission requirements, there are additional requirements for each submission type. These are identified below:
Completed research papers should have completed analyses and documentation of results. Completed research papers should be similar to journal submissions, but shorter.

Research-in-progress papers typically describe work that is as yet incomplete, but promising. Accepted research-in-progress papers will be presented in an interactive format, as posters, during ICIS 2013, and will appear in the ICIS 2013 Proceedings. Authors of accepted research-in-progress papers will be required to bring poster-size presentations for display at their poster session. Additional information on poster preparation and presentation will be forthcoming.
