Format of Submissions

ACM SIGMISCPR 2015 welcomes completed research papers, research-in-progress papers, industry case studies, or proposals for panel discussions or tutorials. All papers must be original, unpublished elsewhere, and in the style of MIS Quarterly. All submissions will be blind reviewed.

  • Completed research papers must not exceed 5000 words or 28 double-spaced pages including all text, figures, and tables. The cover page, abstract, keywords, and references are excluded from this page count.
  • Research-in-progress papers must not exceed 2000 words or 14 double-spaced pages including all text, figures, and tables. The cover page, abstract, keywords, and references are excluded from this page count.
  • Panel and tutorial proposals must include the names and affiliations of panelists who have agreed to participate and a 1-2 page summary of the topic, including a description of how the session will be structured.
  • Industry case studies may report specific strategies being employed or under development to address CPR issues and should be no longer than 3500 words.
  • Research proposals: Students nominated for the doctoral consortium should submit a 10-page research proposal (including all text, figures, and references) to be reviewed by a panel of highly qualified senior faculty mentors.
  • Posters/demo sessions provide an opportunity to showcase work-in-progress in an informal setting. Authors should submit a two-page abstract in PDF format describing what the poster would present. The abstract should clearly state: (a) the problem being addressed; (b) what makes this problem interesting, important, and difficult; (c) your approach to the problem; and (d) the key contribution. In the final version of the abstract, you should include a URL that provides additional information about your work. We strongly encourage doctoral, masters, undergraduate, community college and high school research student submissions. The SIGMIS 2015 Poster and Demo committee will review all posters and demo proposals. Authors of accepted posters must present student posters at the conference and have a printed version of the abstract or poster to handout to attendees.

Poster Requirements

A poster is A0 paper size in portrait mode (841 × 1189mm), to which you can affix visually appealing material that describes your research. Alternatively, you can use the space as a continuum. You should prepare the best material (visually appealing and succinct) that effectively communicates your research problem, techniques, results, and what is novel/important about the work.
