  • August 20, 2022 – Late Registration (non-presenting participants)

ISD2022 will be organized around a number of new and well established tracks. See the description of the Conference Tracks for more information.

Call for Regular Papers:

We invite submissions of technical research papers describing original and unpublished results related to Information Systems development and/or operations including methodological, technological, economical or social aspects.

Technical papers are evaluated on the basis of originality, soundness, relevance, importance of contribution, quality of presentation and appropriate comparison to related work. Where a submission builds upon previous work of the author(s), the novelty of the new contribution must be described clearly with respect to the previous work.

We accept full papers having a maximum length of 12 pages, including references and appendices, and short papers having a maximum length of 8 pages, including references and appendices. Short papers provide an opportunity to describe work in progress and emergent or partial research results; there's also the possibility that certain full paper submissions will be accepted as short papers, if they report promising research but are still in an early stage or early development iteration.

The ISD Proceedings will be published in the AIS eLibrary and will include both full and short papers. In addition, a selection of the best full papers (by invitation) will be published by Springer as a separate volume of the Lecture Notes in Information Systems and Organization series (indexed by Scopus, DBLP, etc.).

Selected papers from Track 6 will be invited for a fast track in Electronic Markets (, IF 4.765).

Call for New Ideas and Vision Papers:

We solicit papers that present new ideas and visions. Papers on new ideas may introduce new, non-conventional research positions or approaches of information systems development that depart from standard practice. They can also describe a well-defined research or technology that is at an early stage of investigation. They could also provide new evidence that common wisdom should be challenged, present new unifying theories about existing information systems development research that provides novel insight or that can lead to the development of new approaches or technologies, or apply information systems technology to radically new application areas.

We also welcome vision papers which will discuss long-term challenges and opportunities in information systems development research that are outside of current mainstream topics of the field. The goal of vision papers is to describe how information systems development research and practice will look in a near future.

“New Ideas/Vision” papers must not exceed 5 pages for the main text, including all figures, tables, appendices, etc. One more page containing only references is permitted.

The ISD Proceedings to be published in the AIS eLibrary will include the New Ideas and Vision Papers.

Call for Posters:

Posters provide an opportunity for researchers and practitioners to present and discuss their most recent research achievements, practical experience, tools and challenges related to Information Systems development. The goal is to encourage and facilitate the exchange of ideas within the ISD community, foster collaboration and, therewith strengthen the community as a whole.

We encourage submissions on early-stage and ongoing work, as well as on innovative applications of existing tools and ideas in practice. We also encourage submissions of EU project results or ideas for proposals, early work (e.g., starting PhD work), work on information systems development education.

The main evaluation criteria for poster submissions are the quality of the proposed poster in terms of novelty, relevance for the ISD audience, technical soundness and its ability to stimulate discussions. They will be reviewed by at least two members of the program committee.

Such submissions will consist of an extended abstract of the presented contribution. The length for poster submissions is 2 to 4 pages plus one page for references. Then, if the poster is accepted, the authors must prepare the actual poster to be posted and presented at the conference.

The ISD Proceedings will be published in the AIS eLibrary including the extended abstract of the posters.

Call for Journal-first Papers:

We invite presentations of journal-first papers - i.e. papers published recently in prestigious journals and in the scope of the different conference tracks. This will both enrich the ISD program as well as offer the authors an opportunity to speak to the community. Such presentations typically stimulate awareness on novel research results, foster citations and inspire new research streams or collaboration opportunities.

The journal papers should be accepted for publication not earlier than January 1st 2021 (with DOI).

The journal-first papers will not be reviewed again for technical content. The program chairs and track chairs will check the appropriateness of the proposal focusing on the scope, quality of the journal (e.g., impact factor, indexation) and date of acceptance for publication.

Journal-first papers are published through the journals and will not be part of the ISD Proceedings. The journal-first papers will be included in the conference program and in the ISD Book of Abstracts.

Such submissions will consist on providing the information of the journal paper (in the EasyChair system) including: the paper’s title, authors, journal name, DOI and link to the paper, Clarivate (JCR) impact factor of the journal, including JCR category/categories, and the abstract. Finally, the original journal paper should also be uploaded during submission.

Submission of Papers and Posters:

All papers and posters must be in English and submitted via the EasyChair conference management system to any of the tracks for the conference.

For details about paper formatting see the Submission Details. All submissions will undergo a double-blind peer-review process (with the exception of the Journal-first papers). To facilitate this, authors must ensure that their papers are prepared in such a way that they do not reveal their identities to reviewers, either directly or indirectly.

T3: Knowledge Science, Knowledge Management and Knowledge Representation in IS

Knowledge management (KM) comprises strategies and practices to identify, create, store and share knowledge in an organisation. The knowledge itself is interpreted and used by humans. Examples if knowledge management systems are case bases, content management systems or groupware systems. In knowledge management, information systems support the storage and retrieval of knowledge. Knowledge can be represented as text, in documents, or graphical models.

In contrast, knowledge representation and reasoning is about creating knowledge-based systems, where knowledge is interpreted and used by computer systems to solve complex tasks. Knowledge representation and reasoning incorporates findings about human problem solving, cognition and logic to automate various kinds of reasoning. Examples of knowledge representation formalisms include rules, knowledge graphs and ontologies. Machine Learning can be applied to derive knowledge from large amounts of data or to refine existing knowledge.

As humans and computers have complementary capabilities, hybrid intelligence - the combination of human intelligence and machine intelligence – can achieve goals that are unreachable by either humans or machine alone. This is where knowledge management and knowledge representation can come together. Knowledge based systems can assist a human to automate specific task. Knowledge representation can be exploited in knowledge management to retrieve relevant cases and models or to infer insights from them.

In this track we welcome papers that deal with either knowledge management or knowledge representation or a combination of both.

Track description update: Due to a large number of submissions focusing on the conference theme, we decided to expand the initial scope of this track by also including here the A.I. methodological papers (distinguished from the application-focused A.I. papers grouped in Track 4).

T4: AI-Empowered IS

Software development has begun to benefit more and more in recent years from the benefits of using artificial intelligence (AI). On the one hand, the software application development process can benefit from the experience gained previously in the realization of the applications, experience that is fully found in the code repositories either private or public on the Internet.

Such applications are used by large companies to perform all the steps necessary for software development (requirements, design, implementation, testing, deployment) faster, better, and at a lower cost. On the other hand, many software applications have components that use artificial intelligence to cluster, classify, or predict. We refer here primarily to components that use computer vision techniques or techniques from natural language processing (whether we are talking about textual resources or spoken resources), but we do not exclude similar techniques from other fields. Such components are used in applications in many fields, but lately, they have begun to be used predominantly in the medical field (when automatically analyzing radiographs, CT scans, ECGs, or patient records, to predict the patient's disease and to suggest what would be the best treatment for it). Also, new technologies such as mixed reality benefit fully from AI help when we need to interact with these applications (through gestures or voice) or when we create smart components in games or eLearning applications.

T5: Usability, Trust and Sustainability in IS

IS development and operations must ensure that systems are designed and implemented for users and therefore should take into account the users’ needs, values, characteristics, and contexts of use throughout the system’s life cycle. Usability is the overall goal of system development; the developed system should help users to achieve specified individual and/or organizational goals in a specified context of use. The usability goal is obtained by adopting a user-centred design approach to IS development. User experience (UX), Human-Computer Interaction (HCI), and Interaction Design (IxD) are related concepts.

Trust in IS (development and operations) is another important goal that characterizes the advancement of the socio-technical landscape. Trust revolves around assurance and confidence that people, data, organizations, information, or processes shall behave as expected; Trust may be analysed in different scopes and relationships, such as human to human, machine to machine, human to machine or machine to human. At a deeper level, trust might be regarded as a consequence of progress towards security or privacy objectives.

However, the development and the use of technology also have a negative impact on the environment and well-being through vectors such as pollution, energy consumption, and the promotion of unhealthy behaviour or lifestyle. Thus, sustainability (e.g., sustainable development and use of IS) should represent a condition under which the shaping of the technological and societal landscape through IS development and operations takes place with minimal negative impact on the environment.

Artificial intelligence (AI) approaches promise that many challenges in sustainable and user-centred design and development could be overcome through the intelligent use of data and technology. However, this promise comes with additional difficulties, such as ensuring user privacy and security, ensuring ethical and fair access to a digital society, and ensuring genuinely transparent processes that utilize users’ data and contexts.

In this track, we approach the socio-technical landscape from individual, organizational, business, political, and societal perspectives. We emphasize the importance of the human and social dimensions and explore how, by focusing on usability, trust, and sustainability, we as IS research community can contribute to the development of better practices, policies, and cultures of IS development and operations with AI.

The track welcomes original contributions about usability, trust, and sustainability and related topics in IS development, especially contributions emphasizing on the application of artificial intelligence techniques. Authors are invited to submit papers of either practical or theoretical nature.
