Submission Instructions

Completed Research/Research-In-Progress Paper Submissions

WITS invites research focused on addressing complex business problems or societal issues using current and emerging information technologies. As WITS is a workshop, it encourages submission of papers that report on an early stage of research and that will lead to interesting discussion at the workshop. We solicit papers that utilize any problem-solving paradigm, such as empirical, analytical, behavioral, experimental, or computational. WITS focuses on papers that inform Design of technologies and systems. As such, authors are required to explicitly discuss how their research addresses important design problems as they relate to Information Technology and Systems.

Submitted completed research papers are limited to 15 double-spaced, Times New Roman, 12-point font, 8.5″ by 11″ pages (including tables, figures, and references and 1″ margins on all sides). All submissions will be subject to double-blind review. Selection for presentation at the workshop and publication in the proceedings will be based on originality, contribution to the field, and workshop interest. Research-in-progress paper submissions should follow the same formatting requirements as completed research papers, and should not exceed 6 pages. The submission template is available for download HERE.

NOTE: By submitting to WITS, authors are acknowledging that the manuscript (or a closely related manuscript) is currently not under review in another Workshop/Conference. Any manuscript found to be in violation of this policy will be removed from the review process.

Demo/Prototype/Poster Submissions

Demos, prototypes, and posters showcase implementations of innovative IT artifacts (i.e., constructs, models, methods). They provide opportunities to demonstrate and discuss emerging IT artifacts with researchers and practitioners.

Demos, prototypes submissions should follow the same formatting requirements as completed research papers, and should not exceed 10 pages. Further, they should include, wherever feasible, links to the associated software or demo (along with screenshots to provide the audience an indication of the functionality). Accepted demo/prototypes will be presented as posters during the workshop.

Dissertation Proposal

We encourage doctoral students, whose dissertation research conforms to the general philosophy of WITS, as specified above, to submit extended abstracts of their dissertation proposals. A committee of senior scholars will evaluate the submissions and select several best dissertation proposals for presentation at the workshop or to be exhibited as posters. The best dissertation proposal and runner up will receive awards at the workshop. The registration fee will be waived for all participants whose proposals are accepted.

The applicant must not have completed the dissertation but must have successfully proposed it, by July 1, 2017. Dissertation proposals should follow the same formatting requirements as completed research papers, and should not exceed 10 pages.
