Call for papers

This is our official Call for Papers:



Submissions open: October 6th, 2014
Submission deadline: November 28th, 2014 (strict and only deadline!)
Notification of acceptance: End of February, 2015


Modern society is a networked society permeated by information technology (IT), which defines ECIS 2015's Conference Theme. Networks - perceived as a group of organisations and people who exchange information, contacts, and experience for professional or social purposes - leave their mark on almost every area of our society and promise various advantages to those involved. From a technical perspective, enormous amounts of information can be communicated to a larger number of recipients faster than ever before. The extensive use of Information Systems has enabled the co-evolution of advanced quantitative and qualitative forms of networking.
ECIS 2015 should be a meeting place for European and non-European IS researchers from various cultures and countries, and should reflect specific and innovative IS research dealing with the overarching networked society.
We are happy to welcome you to Muenster, a cradle of German IS research and education!

Research-in-progress may address work still under development, but usual standards of academic rigour apply.
Research papers, research-in-progress, and teaching cases will be published in the ECIS conference proceedings and made available in the AIS Electronic Library.
Research papers and teaching cases will be presented in interactive conference track sessions.
Research-in-progress papers and prototype papers will be presented in a poster session.


Please visit the 'Submissions' page for author guidelines and Word and LaTeX document templates that will simplify the layout of your submission.
Besides the Conference, there will also be a Doctoral Consortium, Panels, Workshops, Affiliated Events and Social Events.
To organise a Workshop or an Affiliated Event, please see the separate call for workshops on the ECIS 2015 website. Please monitor our website and do not forget to check the 'Important dates' page.


Authors should submit to the track that best fits their research. Research papers are limited in length to 12 pages. Research-in-progress (RiP) papers and prototype papers are limited in length to 7 pages respectively. RiP and prototype papers are being submitted to specific tracks. Teaching cases may be up to 14 pages in length and have to be submitted to the IS Teaching Cases Track.
All submissions must use the Word or the LaTeX template and be submitted as a .pdf file.
