Types of Submissions & Templates
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 2023 submission template. Full papers that are accepted will be published in their entirety in the conference proceedings.
Emergent Research Forum (ERF) papers
Emergent Research Forum (ERF) papers are research in progress. Like completed research, ERF papers will be submitted to a mini track for double blind review. Upon acceptance, ERF papers will be presented by authors while interested participants gather to share ideas and discuss topics of mutual interest. ERF papers must not exceed 5 pages (approx. 2,500 words) and must conform to the AMCIS 2023 submission template. Authors of accepted ERF papers may submit an abstract for the proceedings OR a revised paper.
Technology Research, Education, and Opinion (TREO) Talks sessions
Technology Research, Education, and Opinion (TREO) Talks 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 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.
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. Proposals can be quite brief but should provide an outline sufficient for the reviewers 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.
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.
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 co-chairs are willing to work with panel submitters to help them develop provocative ideas into strong proposals.
