Full Research & Research-in-Progress Papers
Full research and research-in-progress submissions may take the form of theoretical essays, formal analyses, technical discussions, and/or papers reporting on quantitative or qualitative empirical research. It is expected that full papers in these categories will include final (or in-progress) data analyses and documentation of results. Full research should be similar to journal submissions, but shorter (i.e. 10 A4 pages). Research-in-progress papers are the same as above but typically represent work that is incomplete, yet promising.
They must be submitted to the conference track that best fits the topic area. ACIS 2015 recognises that the list of tracks is not an exhaustive one - nonetheless, ACIS 2015 asks that authors select the track that best fits the topic area. The Programme Co-Chairs may then shift a submission from one track to another, as they deem appropriate.

Submission Format

The language of the conference is English. All submissions must therefore be in English.

Submissions to ACIS2015 should not have been published previously in a journal or conference proceedings, nor presented at another conference, nor currently under review or consideration for publication or presentation elsewhere.

Length and format
The maximum length for all submissions is 10 A4 pages (please use font Georgia 10 as in the example), including appendices, but excluding references, abstract and authors spec. All submissions must be in .DOC format and must use the ACIS 2015 submission template<https://acis2015.unisa.edu.au/wp-content/uploads/2015/08/1acis2015-submission-template11.doc>. This document also contains the general guidelines for formatting of all submissions. For EndNote reference style (MISQ) please visit here<http://www.aaisnet.org/FAQ/MISQ-Revised.ens> Please use the template for both Full Research and Research in Progress papers.

Anonymizing for Initial Review
As all submissions will be double-blind reviewed, the author's names(s) and affiliation(s) should not be included anywhere in the document for the initial submission. If referring to articles or documents by the same author(s) these should be removed from the text and reference list, and replace with <removed for refereeing>.

When using this template prior to the review process, you must also ensure that the remainder of the document contains no author information at all - not in the author/affiliation section above the abstract, the header, the copyright statement or in the document properties associated with the file. To remove personal information from the Microsoft Word document properties, see the following links for the version of that is being used to edit the file:

  *   Microsoft Word 2003<http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/word-help/remove-personal-or-hidden-information-HP005190102.aspx>
  *   Microsoft Word 2007<http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/excel-help/remove-hidden-data-and-personal-information-from-office-documents-HA010037593.aspx#BM3>
  *   Microsoft Word 2010<http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/word-help/remove-hidden-data-and-personal-information-by-inspecting-documents-HA010354329.aspx?CTT=1>
  *   Microsoft Word 2013<http://office.microsoft.com/en-nz/word-help/remove-hidden-data-and-personal-information-by-inspecting-documents-HA010354329.aspx#_Toc312143395>

As it places a significant administrative burden on the conference organisers to ensure that your paper does not identify you as an author, and as this is central to the integrity of the double-blind review process, then failure to comply with these formatting requirements will result in rejection of your paper.

How to Submit
All submissions must be made via the ACIS 2015 Submission System<https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=acis20150%20>. Author information, abstract, keywords and the main body of the submission will be uploaded separately in the review system. Authors can upload a manuscript  that can be altered, re-uploaded or deleted. Once an author "submits" a manuscript to the system, however, it can no longer be changed, edited, or revised.

Please note: No duplicate submissions to different tracks will be accepted.

Review Process
All paper submissions will be pre-screened for conformity with the submission guidelines and overall appropriateness for the conference. Paper submissions that pass the initial screening will be evaluated in a double-blind peer review process. These include full research papers, research-in-progress papers, teaching cases, and practitioner reports. Each conference track is chaired by IS academics with research expertise in the respective area. The track chairs will supervise the review process, involving selected reviewers from the IS research community. Acceptance and rejection decisions are will be finalized by the Programme Committee.

In general, the review criteria will be those typically used by major journals and conferences (e.g. relevance of the topic, quality of the research process, contribution etc). The results of the review process will be communicated to the author(s) by the specified date. The author(s) will be responsible for making the revisions recommended by the reviewers, and for submitting the final version of their paper by the appropriate deadline.

Commitment to participate in the conference
At least one author of each accepted paper and all the members of accepted panels must register for the conference.
