*** CALL FOR NEW IDEAS/VISION AND JOURNAL-FIRST PAPERS and POSTERS ***

29th International Conference on Information Systems Development (ISD2021)

Valencia, Spain

September 8-10, 2021

http://isd2021.webs.upv.es/

ISD is a venue for the exchange of innovative ideas and experiences in information systems development. Since 1988, ISD has provided a broad forum for reporting scientific progress on different challenges in the ISD field, to bridging the gaps between industry, academia and society. This is an affiliated conference of the Association for Information Systems (AIS) that has raised a good international reputation.

The ISD2021 theme is "Crossing boundaries between Development and Operations (DevOps) in Information Systems".

The conference focuses on influences among information systems, organizational structures, and processes and people from its conception to its operation. The conference promotes research of methodological and technological issues and ways in which the IS developers and operators are transforming organizations and society through information systems. 

We invite submissions from researchers and practitioners in all topics on IS development and particularly aligned with the main theme of the conference.

NEW IDEAS/VISION PAPER SUBMISSION:

We solicit short papers that present new ideas and visions. Papers on new ideas may describe new, non-conventional research positions or approaches of information systems development that depart from standard practice. We also welcome vision papers which will be on long-term challenges and opportunities in information systems development research that are outside of current mainstream topics of the field. “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.

Submissions will undergo a double-blind peer-review process. All papers must be submitted via EasyChair to any of the tracks for the conference: https://www.easychair.org/my/conference?conf=isd2021

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

JOURNAL-FIRST PAPER SUBMISSION:

We invite journal-first presentations for papers published recently in prestigious journals and in the scope of the different track of the conference. This will both enrich the ISD program as well as offer the authors an opportunity to speak to the community.

The journal papers should be accepted for publication not earlier than January 1st 2020 (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 the ISD proceedings will only contain the abstract and a link to the journal publication.

POSTER SUBMISSION:

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. 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. 

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 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. Posters should be submitted via EasyChair: https://www.easychair.org/my/conference?conf=isd2021

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