CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS & IMPORTANT DATES

We invite the submission of completed research papers, Emergent Research Forum (ERF) papers, Technology Research, Education, and Opinion (TREO) talks, Professional Development Symposia (PDS), workshops, and panels to the 30th Americas Conference on Information Systems (AMCIS). To be held August 15-17, 2024, in Salt Lake City, Utah, AMCIS 2024 will bring together academics and industry professionals around the world to exchange knowledge related to diverse facets of information systems research and practice.

AMCIS 2024 will provide exciting opportunities for participation, collaboration, and dialogue related to the conference theme “Elevating Life Through Digital Social Entrepreneurship.” With your contributions, we will present an exciting program that draws upon the best SIG-driven AMCIS traditions. We anticipate thought-provoking presentations and stimulating discussions that exemplify our incredible discipline.

The AMCIS 2024 conference format will be completely in-person. This format will allow participants to fluidly engage with the research and each other and will promote deeper involvement and collaboration while managing conference costs. Recognizing the value of accessibility and inclusivity, we are committed to broadening participation beyond the physical event. To this end, key conference content will be recorded and made freely available online to AIS members following the conference. Virtual access to conference content will be available to all AIS members via:

  • Recordings of conference keynotes and panels
  • Pre-recorded author videos for each paper in the AIS eLibrary, where viewers can post comments and engage with authors

This approach not only extends access to those who cannot attend in person but also serves as a lasting resource for all AIS members, enhancing the impact and reach of the valuable insights shared at AMCIS 2024. Scholarships to help support in-person attendance will be available on a limited basis.

There are numerous benefits to authors leveraging the conference to journal submission cycle for papers. Click here to learn more.

Submission Types

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 traditional conference session format. Each session will consist of three or four papers that have been 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 2024 submission template. Full papers that are accepted will be published in their entirety in the conference proceedings. The call for papers and template* to be used are available here.

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 2024 submission template. Authors of accepted ERF papers may submit an abstract for publication in the proceedings OR a revised paper. The call for papers and template* to be used are available here.

Technology Research, Education, and Opinion (TREO) Talk sessions will provide attendees a platform to informally 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 piece on any area of IT. TREO Talk submissions will be editorially reviewed to ensure that they are IS related and appropriate in nature. Accepted TREO Talk 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. The call for proposals and template* to be used are available here.

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 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 for the conference. Some indication of likely presenters would be helpful. The call for proposals and template* to be used are available here.

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. The call for proposals and template* to be used are available here.

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. The call for proposals and template* to be used are available here.

*Please note: A link to the Word document version of each template is available from inside the PDF template.

  • Submissions authored by the track or mini-track chairs must be submitted to the “General Topics” mini-track within the Conference Theme track – Elevating Life Through Digital Social Entrepreneurship.
  • Determine the proper submission type (e.g., ERF, Panel) by reviewing the types of submissions on the conference website. Submission instructions, templates, and forms can also be found on the website. Check here.
  • The AMCIS 2024 conference format will be 100% in-person. At least one author from each accepted submission must register, attend, and present their work at the conference or the submission will not be included in the AMCIS 2024 proceedings.

Note that every author (co-author) is limited to a maximum of three papers (this includes any combination of Full and ERF papers), and each paper (Full and ERF) may have a maximum of five authors

Important Dates

Submissions to AMCIS 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. We will 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. You need to declare in PCS before submission: “I have used Generative AI to assist in 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. We look forward to receiving your AMCIS 2024 submissions! If you have any questions, contact track chairs directly or send an email to one of the addresses below.
