The XIX Conference of the Italian Chapter of AIS & The XIV Mediterranean Conference on Information Systems
Acting in the digital society: moving towards a sustainable future

Submission guidelines

Submissions will be evaluated through a double-blind peer-review process. Track chairs will select reviewers and ensure the anonymity of the review process.
Authors are encouraged to seek guidance from Track Chairs prior to submitting the paper. We encourage authors to submit an abstract – NOT COMPULSORY – (no more than 2000 words, providing information about the research aim, the theoretical framework and/or theories applied, the research methods, and the main/expected findings with potential implications, including a few references) to receive feedbacks by the Track Chairs before full paper submission.

ITAIS and MCIS use two separate collections for publishing the conference proceedings on the AIS digital library.
For this reason, authors must specify on their submission which outlet they are interested in having their paper published on. This information has to be provided by the authors on the Easychair platform during the submission process (selecting ITAIS or MCIS concerning the field “proceedings publication“).

MCIS Proceedings

MCIS is an inclusive conference. This means that we provide constructive feedback to authors so that they can improve their work. Given the timeline, there will be very little opportunity for authors to revise their papers. So, the policy is that we can accept papers if they have interesting research/research-in-progress to share, even if they have shortcomings. We have more flexibility to accept research-in-progress papers. Research papers that are weak but would benefit from feedback from the conference can be conditionally accepted as research-in-progress. Papers with major shortcomings will of course be rejected.

  • Research Papers are full-length papers (up to 12 pages, excluding references).
  • Research-in-Progress papers are promising but incomplete research projects that will benefit from the feedback of other MCIS participants (up to 7 pages, excluding references).
  • Submitted  papers must conform to the  “MCIS2022 template”

ITAIS Proceedings

The page limit for a full paper (where the abstract in this case needs to include no more than 250 words) is around 14 pages (excluding references) and must be anonymized (no author details): Formatting rules (LNCS Springer format) are available at this link

Further publication opportunity

Accepted papers will need to show both relevance and methodological rigour. The best contributions will be published in a Springer volume “Lecture Notes in Information Systems and Organization” series, indexed on Scopus. We are also arranging agreements for fast access to journals (some information are already available in the description of specific tracks). Other papers will be published in the conference proceedings (online) with ISBN on AISel. At least one author for each accepted paper should attend the conference, presenting her/his contribution.
