ISSIP-IBM Student Paper Award for Best Industry Studies Paper
"Call for Nomination" - Deadline for Submission: October 31, 2016, 24:00 PST
IBM and the International Society of Service Innovation Professionals (ISSIP) announce the 2017 (HICSS-50) "Move the Field Forward Best Paper Award", intended to recognize research excellence in the areas of major understanding of smart/wise service systems at organizations.
The ISSIP (http://www.issip.org/) is a non-profit organization co-founded by IBM, Cisco & HP to promote human-centered "smart" services for value and outcome. IBM and ISSIP promote and disseminate research and applications among academicians and professionals interested in theory, methodologies, and applications in major understanding of smart/wise service systems (cognitive, wisdom, cloud and fog computing, analytics, mobile, social, security, internet of things, digital transformation, service science, service innovation etc.). The awards also can encourage a cultural shift by scholars toward explicit recognition of their collaboration with industry practitioners and demonstrate the benefits of such interaction for scholarly research.
Up to 3 papers will receive ISSIP-IBM awards based on evaluation criteria. Each of top-3 papers will receive a $1,500 award check and a certificate. The financial award is restricted to only the student authors of a winning paper. Faculty co-authors and industry co-authors are not eligible for cash awards. Winners' names, affiliations, and abstracts of their papers (with a link to the Proceedings) will be displayed on the ISSIP's official website and newsletter. Some years if the quality is not high enough, there may be no awards. The winners will be asked to give a 30-minute virtual presentation via WebEx at the ISSIP's Service Innovation Speaker Series (http://www.issip.org/learning-center/2602- 2/issip-service-innovation-weekly-speaker-series/).
ELIGIBILITY REQUIREMENTS AND AUTHOR GUIDELINES
One of the authors should be a student at the time of submission, or have been a student during academic year 2015-2016. Students must not have completed their degree (e.g. PhD, master's or undergraduate degree) prior to August 1, 2016.
At least one industry person must be a co-author.
Papers must show industry-university collaboration (industry co-author, student co-author, faculty co-author).
We are interested in papers that move the field forward - major understanding of smart/wise service systems (cognitive, wisdom, cloud and fog computing, analytics, mobile, social, security, internet of things, digital transformation, service science etc.).
The paper's level of analysis can be individual, group, organizational, industry, or cross-industry, but it must explore and provide insight into issues of significance at the industry level of analysis.
Authors must be a member of the ISSIP at the time of the award announcement at HICSS. Complimentary individual membership is available through http://www.issip.org/pages/home/membership/
The paper needs to be accepted for a presentation at HICSS (will be included in the proceedings).
NOMINATION AND SELECTION PROCESS
We will consider nominations for any eligible paper accepted for a presentation in HICSS-50. Each minitrack/ track chair can nominate papers for this award. Self-nominations are also welcome. The award committee will work with a panel of distinguished scholars to determine the quality, fit and rank ordering of winners. The winners will be announced at the HICSS-50 Conference.
