Full papers of 5000-7000 words should document established results and be presented according to the highest academic standards. Full papers will be allocated 30 mins (20 mins presentation, 10 mins discussion).
Developmental papers including concept papers, position papers and research-in-progress will also be considered and should be between 1500-2000 words. UKAIS actively encourages submissions from early researchers and early researcher group submissions. The purpose of the short paper category is to enable researchers to discuss their work whilst it is in developmental stage, so comments and feedback obtained at the event can be incorporated in the final stages of research and writing up.
All papers must be formatted using the UKAIS 2017 conference template which is available here
All papers must be submitted through EasyChair which can be accessed here
The paper title and authors’ names and contact details must appear on a cover sheet only, as should a clear indication of the topic areas for which the presenter is aiming. To facilitate the blind refereeing process, the body of the paper must be presented anonymously, with the title at the head of each page. Each paper will receive a double peer review.
All accepted papers will appear in the published proceedings of the conference which will be ISBN registered and available internationally through publication in the official AIS electronic library. Selected papers will appear in a special section of JICES.
