Submission FAQ

  • Submission deadline is: May 1 (Wed), 2024, by 23:59 ICT (Bangkok). No submissions will be accepted after the deadline even if the submission system is not automatically shut down. Any papers submitted after the official deadline will be early rejected.

There are eight types of submissions:

  • Completed research papers (can be submitted to any track except ‘Literature Reviews’, “Panels”, “PDW” or “Paper-a-thon”)
  • Short Papers (can be submitted to any track except‘Literature Reviews’, “Panels”, “PDW” or “Paper-a-thon”)
  • Literature reviews (submitted to the “Literature Reviews” track only)
  • Teaching cases (submitted to the “Digital Learning and IS Curricula” track only)
  • Panel proposals (submitted to the “Panels” track only)
  • PDW proposals (submitted to the “PDW” track only)
  • Paper-a-thon (submitted to “Paper-a-thon” track only)
  • TREO-talks (submitted to “TREO-talks” track only)
  • No! Under no circumstances should the same paper (or different versions of the same paper) be submitted to more than one track. You also may not submit essentially the same paper under two different titles; both papers will be desk rejected.
  • Yes, you may submit multiple papers. However, you should not be listed as an author on more than five (5) submissions (including completed research and short papers, PDW and panel proposals, and teaching cases).
  • You may not submit the same or slightly varied papers to different tracks. If you do so, it will be considered as unethical scientific behavior and both papers will be rejected.
  • One of our goals is to have a diversity of people presenting papers. If you have multiple submissions accepted, we encourage you to coordinate with your co-authors so that each of you presents a paper, rather than having one individual presenting many different papers.
  • No! Submissions to ICIS 2024 must be original; submissions, or highly similar versions, cannot have been published or accepted in a journal or conference proceedings. Further, submissions must not be concurrently under consideration for publication or presentation elsewhere. The program team will run plagiarism checks prior to sending out submissions for review. Submissions that fail the check will be rejected without review.
  • We encourage you to read track descriptions carefully as we expect most papers to fit with at least one track. However, if your paper topic doesn’t fit any of the tracks, submit your paper to the General IS Topics track.
  • No
  • Please notify the program chairs if you want to withdraw your submission.
  • All submissions must be in Adobe PDF format only. Files submitted in other formats or that do not use the submission template will be rejected without review. Please consult the ICIS 2024 Submission Guidelines for further information. Also, all author and affiliation information must be removed from the PDF file properties prior to submission.
  • You can find all guidelines here.
  • English (including American, British, Canadian, etc., dialects) is the language of the conference and of all submissions.
  • Everything in the submission. All text, figures, tables, appendices, and references must be included within the page limit. Only for literature reviews the references to do not count for the page limit.
  • Submissions that exceed the page limits will be early rejected.
  • Abstracts must be 150 words or less. The abstract should be a concise statement of the problem, approach, and conclusion of the work. It should clearly state the paper’s contribution to the field.
  • Impact statements must be 200 words or less. The impact statement should briefly explain what the impact of the paper is to what type of audience. It should clearly state the paper’s impact within and beyond academia.
  • There are a number of required metadata to fill in the PCS system e.g., title of paper, abstract, impact statement, when you make your submission. If any of these fields are missing, then your acknowledgement email will state that the submission is incomplete, and indicate what you need to fill in. Please make sure that you enter this information in PCS before the deadline, and that your submission status is no longer “incomplete”. Incomplete submissions after the deadline will be rejected.
  • Submitted papers can be early rejected by program chairs for technical reasons (e.g., failure to adhere to submission formatting guidelines). Otherwise, full research papers, short papers, and teaching cases will be assigned by the track chairs to an associate editor. The AE has the discretion to recommend an early reject without review and will provide a detailed and constructive review of the paper. Otherwise, the AE will invite 2-3 reviewers. For more details, please refer to the guidelines for the review team.
