At ICIS 2017 we are experimenting with a new model for collaborating on research – a “paper hackathon.” The goal will be to facilitate new research collaboration. The format is an intense two-day paper hackathon where researchers self-organize to work under the mentorship of prominent IS scholars and then present the results to a panel of journal editors.
The most promising initial collaborations will further develop and present the research in a regular ICIS session, and will also be fast-tracked for publication in the Journal of the AIS. Those looking to participate in the session should submit a 1-3 pages proposal describing what they can bring to the hackathon (i.e. data, method, perspective, domain expertise, etc.).
