Call for Papers

Information technology is increasingly permeating all sectors of both economic and everyday life increasing the importance of the Information Systems field. The goal of the 10th International Conference Wirtschaftinformatik (Information Systems) is to improve our understanding of this development from a scientific perspective as well as to provide practitioners and academics a platform for the discussion of this topic.

In particular, the increasing pace of changes due to the Internet/ Business 2.0 phenomenon require reflection on the durability of our findings. Therefore, we chose the conference motto "Information Systems 2.011" to illustrate our needs to think beyond the current phenomena.

We invite you to submit original (i.e., previously unpublished) and well-grounded papers of a theoretical, empirical, and design science nature. Research papers should clearly present their scientific contributions and show sound methodological foundation. We particularly encourage papers that ensure the repeatability of their results for others, in which the data and findings are made available to the community. With this encouragement we would like to facilitate research, which builds on the findings of others.

The General Chairs and the Track Chairs (TC) cordially invite you to submit articles in the following conference tracks:
