2017 Pre-ICIS SIGDSA Symposium

Call for Papers – Deadline Extended

Due to multiple requests from faculty, we are extending the paper submission deadline to Friday, September 15th, 2017.


General Submission Guidelines

The symposium follows a double-blind review process.

Submission Track Selection

When submitting, you must make a decision on the track most relevant to your submission (Research or Teaching). If you feel your submission is suitable for more than one track, please submit it to only that track where you deem the submission would make the most important contribution. An author can, however, submit more than one manuscript for consideration to be included in the symposium program.

Length and Formatting Requirements

The requirements listed under each track are firm. Any submission that exceeds length limits or deviates from formatting requirements will be rejected without review. Please use the submission template to prepare your manuscript for submission. Do not include author(s) and affiliation info during initial submission and review. If your manuscript has been accepted for the Symposium, then add author(s) and affiliation information during resubmission of the camera-ready copy of the manuscript.

Publication Options

Authors of accepted papers will have the option of publishing (a) extended abstract OR (b) complete manuscript as part of the conference proceedings on AIS eLibrary.

If authors choose to publish only the extended abstract, authors will retain copyright of the complete manuscript submitted during the review process for feedback. The suggested length for an extended abstract is mentioned in the Research and Teaching track sections, and the length excludes cover page and references. The extended abstract should follow the same format used for main article text as the complete research paper with the exception that it should not contain any subsections.

Journal Publication Opportunities

Papers accepted in the Research Track of the symposium will be eligible to be selected for fast track review at the following journals.

Originality of Submissions

Submissions to the pre-ICIS SIGDSA Symposium must not already have been published or accepted in a journal or conference proceedings, nor presented at another conference. Further, they must not be currently under consideration for publication or presentation elsewhere.


The language of the symposium and all submissions must be in English language only.

Best Paper Recognition

One paper each from the research track and teaching track will be selected for the “Best Paper” award recognition.

Commitment to Participate in the Symposium

At least one author of every accepted submission and all members of every accepted Panel/Workshop/Tutorial must register for the conference by the early registration deadline (see Important Dates).
