Call for Submissions

We invite submissions of completed research and short papers across 25 conference tracks, including our theme track: “People First: Constructing Digital Futures Together.” We also invite submissions for TREO Forum papers, Panel proposals, and Debate and Provocation proposals.

  • Completed Research and Short Paper submission deadline: 17 November 2023, 23:59 CET (Central European Time)
  • Notification of Completed Research and Short Paper (conditional) acceptance: 28 February 2024
  • TREO Forum Paper, Panel proposals, and Debate and Provocation proposals submission deadline: 11 March 2024 23:59 CET (Central European Time)
  • Notification of TREO Forum, Panel proposals, and Debate and Provocation proposals acceptance: 25 March 2024

For Completed and Short Research paper submissions, please consider the following:

  • All papers need to be submitted to one – and only one – of the 25 conference tracks.
  • An author may be an author or co-author of a maximum of three (3) manuscripts. If an excessive number of papers are submitted, only the three first will be kept and the rest will be desk-rejected.
  • Submissions must be original. Plagiarism checks will be done prior to sending out submissions for review (see point #4 below).
  • Track Chairs are not allowed to submit to their own track. They are asked to submit their paper(s) to other tracks.
  • Authors should be mindful of track chairs’ potential conflicts of interest when they submit to a track. In case of a concern, authors are expected to contact the track chair(s) (and copy the program chairs) and might be advised to submit to another track.
  1. General Submission Information
  1. Submission Types
  1. Language

The language of the conference, and of all submissions, is English. If authors are concerned about the quality of their written English, we recommend engaging the services of a proofreader before submitting their paper(s).

  1. Originality

Submissions to ECIS 2024 must be original. The submission, or a highly similar version, cannot have been published or accepted in a journal or another conference proceedings. Further, submissions must not be concurrently under consideration for publication or presentation elsewhere. Upon submission of a paper, authors must declare that they follow the AIS Code of Ethics and Professional Conduct and have avoided plagiarizing their own or others’ work. The program chairs will run plagiarism checks prior to sending out submissions for review. Submissions that fail the check will be desk-rejected without review. We follow the AIS guidelines to handle plagiarism cases. Serious cases will be considered and brought to the awareness of the AIS Research Conduct Committee.

If a highly similar version of the submission exists, such as an unpublished Ph.D. thesis or early results of a study, this must be indicated in the submission as a footnote (kept anonymous to ensure a blind review process).

While authors may use Generative AI (e.g., ChatGPT) for certain aspects of their work such as ChatGPT assisting in editing their writing, the submissions must represent the authors’ intellectual contributions. Authors will need to disclose the use of Generative AI for any aspect of the work.

Self-declaration on the PCS submission page

You need to click the box in PCS before submission: “I declare that I follow the AIS Code of Ethics and Professional Conduct and that I have not plagiarized my own or other researchers’ works”.

You need to declare in PCS before submission: “I have used Generative AI to assist some aspect of conducting my research or writing the paper.” If the response is “Yes”, you will be asked to describe how you have used Generative AI in your work.

  1. Anonymizing of Completed and Short Research Papers for Blind Review

For initial completed and short research paper submissions, authors’ name(s) must not appear in the body of the paper (including the abstract). Please note that if authors’ names are revealed anywhere in the paper, the paper will be desk-rejected outright without further review. Authors must eliminate references to their institutions and sponsors, as well as to their unpublished and published work, if these references reveal the identity of the author(s). Authors are asked to remove any personal 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 proposals or Debate and Provocation proposals do not have to be made anonymous for review). The “Acknowledgements” section should be left blank until the final paper version is prepared for the conference proceedings.

  1. Copyright Note

For all papers accepted at ECIS 2024, authors retain the copyrights. However, by submitting a paper, authors agree that AIS can publish and reproduce any accepted papers in the ECIS 2024 proceedings in the format of AIS’ choosing (e-Library, printed proceedings, etc.). Authors are encouraged to develop their papers for journal publication after the conference. Completed and short research papers as well as panel proposals accepted and presented in interactive presentation sessions (or as posters) will be published in the ECIS conference proceedings and made available in the AIS Electronic Library. TREO Forum papers for ECIS 2024 will also be made available in the AIS Electronic Library.

Should you have any questions about TREO Forum paper submissions, Panel proposals, or Debate and Provocation proposals please contact the respective chairs. Should you have any questions about completed and short research paper submissions, please contact the track chairs of the conference track you plan to submit your paper to, or the program chairs, ideally before November 10, 2023.
