The deadline for submission of research and education papers for the conference is Tuesday, September 18, 2012. Research (including pedagogical research) papers should follow the style and submission guidelines of the Journal of Information Systems (JIS). Instructional cases should be in a format similar to that used in Issues in Accounting Education.
The review of papers submitted to the Information Systems section will be reviewed with the intention of identification of promising papers that may be suitable for publication in the Journal of Information Systems. The editor of the Journal of Information Systems will contact authors of identified papers and invite their submission to the Journal of Information Systems. See the Policy and Procedure for Identifying Promising Papers for Publication in the Journal of Information Systems for more information.
Conference submissions are eligible for three best paper awards, with $500 prizes for each award: (a) best paper (sponsored by KPMG), (b) best case paper (sponsored by the IMA Foundation) and (c) best education paper (sponsored by the IMA Foundation – winning paper must be submitted to the IMA Educational Case Journal (IECJ))

New Scholars Consortium
The New Scholars Consortium enables new scholars (defined as no more than three years after receiving Ph.D.) and Ph.D. students to receive constructive feedback on their research in progress and proposals from successful faculty members in a small group setting. The IS section will provide one hotel night to the first five new scholars who submit a proposal to the Consortium, and the first twenty doctoral students (proposals are highly encouraged, but not necessary to receive the free night). Sharing of rooms is possible to lower lodging costs, please inquire. Submission deadline: Submissions are now being accepted through November 1, 2012. All stages of research in progress are acceptable. Please direct Word format submissions and questions to Ann Dzuranin: (email@example.com)
