~ ECIS 2016 - 2nd call for Workshops & Tutorials ~

The European Conference on Information Systems (ECIS) increasingly 
attracts co-located workshops on topics related to Information Systems. 
Continuing on this trend, ECIS 2016 in Istanbul aims to feature a number 
of co-located workshops. Workshops are especially encouraged on emerging 
topics and should not already be covered by the conference tracks. 
Tutorials on teaching, research (methods and tools) and academic careers 
are also encouraged.
We invite the IS community to propose full-day or half-day workshops to 
be held prior to the ECIS conference.  You are invited to submit a 
complete workshop proposal for further evaluation by October 9, 2015.

You can propose a workshop until October 9, 2015 by using the online 
form (http://www.ecis2016.eu/en/workshopform.asp). This form will ask 
you to provide the following details.
-  Workshop title
-  Main contact details
-  Workshop organizers
-  Workshop theme
-  Workshop format
-  Program committee members
-  Plan for publications (e.g. a journal special issue)
-  Target audience and expected attendance
-  Planned acceptance rate (if applicable)
-  Workshop schedule (deadlines etc.)
-  Special equipment needed
-  Prior experience of the proposers in workshop organization
Decisions to accept/reject workshop proposals will be made by the 
Workshops Chairs in consultation with the Conference and Program Chairs. 
Evaluation criteria include overall quality of the proposal and 
compatibility with the ECIS 2016 program (i.e. no overlap with ECIS 2016 
tracks) as well as venue capacity.

*Important dates*
-  October 9, 2015: Submission of workshop proposals
-  November 14, 2015: Notification of acceptance of proposals and start 
of discussion on special workshop requirements
-  June 2016: Workshops at ECIS 2016 in Istanbul

Workshop organizers are responsible for the content of the workshop and 
are required to cooperate closely with the Workshops Chairs and the ECIS 
2016 local organizers to finalize all organizational details, such as 
arranging rooms, catering and required equipments. The workshop will be 
announced on the ECIS 2016 conference website, but workshop organizers 
are also encouraged to promote their workshop (e.g. distributing a call 
for papers) in their own networks.
If the workshop has a paper presentation format, the organizers of the 
workshop will be responsible for the reviewing process. This means that 
you have to use your own paper management system (e.g. EasyChair) and 
also have to publish your own proceedings.
Workshop attendees must pay the ECIS 2016 workshop registration fee. If 
workshop attendees would also like to attend the main conference, they 
must also pay the conference registration fee. Workshop registrations 
and payments will be made via the Conference registration system, and 
payments to the facilities will thus be taken care of by the local ECIS 
organizers. In particular, local organizers may require that all 
workshops adhere to specific requirements regarding the general 
timetable, registration and catering.
Workshop organizers must inform the Workshop Chairs of the numbers of 
submissions and acceptances as these numbers become available. Workshops 
may be cancelled owing to lack of submissions or registrations at the 
early registration deadline. Please note that the duration of the 
workshop might be adjusted based on the number of submissions received. 
Only accepted workshops are official ECIS 2016 workshops and enjoy 
support from the organizing committee.

*Workshop Chairs*
-  Remko Helms (Utrecht University, Netherlands)
-  Huseyin Cavusoglu (University of Texas at Dallas, USA)

If you have any questions before submitting your proposal please send an 
e-mail to the workshop chairs (wt at ecis2016.eu). We look forward to 
receiving your questions and your proposal!

Please note: Proposals should be submitted using the online form 
(http://www.ecis2016.eu/en/workshopform.asp) and should not be sent by
