Student Track

The aim of the Student Track is to give students the opportunity to actively participate in the International Conference on Information Systems. It is aimed at students at the Master’s level who are interested in either an IT-related position in business or in a scientific career in Business Informatics.

The Student Track offers a platform where students, scientists and practitioners can get to know each other in professional discourse. Students from all locations and fields of business informatics are invited to submit high-quality papers. Students who do not submit a paper are also welcome to attend the lectures and participate in the Student Track’s social program.

Submission and review process

Students can submit either work-in-progress papers or completed qualification papers that were submitted no more than ten months ago.

The format template is available for download on the conference website - contributions can be written in German or English. The format and scope of the submissions must comply exactly with the requirements of the main conference. English contributions should be presented and discussed in English during the conference. Participation of the supervisors as co-authors of the submission is welcome. In this case, the students will act as first authors and present their work at the conference.

We ask the authors to make their contributions anonymous for the review process by omitting their name, address, etc. in the contribution. All other information that allows conclusions to be drawn about the authors, e.g. metadata, should also be deleted. The submission of the paper for the review process is done via the conference system as a PDF document. Submitted papers will be evaluated in the regular review process of the conference. Students will receive professional feedback from at least two independent reviewers of the program committee (double-blind).

Publication

Accepted papers will be presented in the conference paper session and published in the conference proceedings. Work-in-Progress papers will be presented in a poster session accessible to all conference participants. Papers presented in the poster session will not be published in the conference proceedings.

Best Student Paper Award: The Liechtenstein Chapter of the Association for Information Systems (AIS) awards the best student paper with a prize money of 500,- Euro.
