The universal diffusion of Information and Communication Technologies is creating a fragmented knowledge frontier of the emerging challenges associated with the adoption of technologies at the local and global level. This frontier cuts across the organizations, states and communities that define the new laboratory for critical research on the dynamics of information systems in a globalised world, raising ethical and practical concerns at different levels of analysis. The aim of ECIS 2009 is to cultivate this new laboratory by calling for original, unpublished research and research-in-progress papers, teaching cases and panel proposals in all areas of information systems research.
Papers submission deadline: 15 November 2008
Panels Submission deadline: End of January
Notification of acceptance: Early March 2009
Submission of final version: 31 March 2009
Conference: 8-10 June 2009 (Monday - Wednesday)
There will be no specialist tracks in ECIS 2009 with the only differentiation being between full research papers and research-in-progress papers. The management of the reviews for each paper will be handled by an Associate Editor, who will advise the research / research-in-progress chairs as to the suitability of the paper following the review process.
Research and research-in-progress papers:
Papers for ECIS cover all aspects of information systems, broadly defined, and may take the form of completed research papers and research-in-progress papers. Research papers should document established results and be presented to the highest academic standards. Research-in-progress papers may address issues still under development. However, academic rigour is still expected.
