Call for papers

WISE is the premier academic research forum for the discussion of information systems issues through the lens of economics.

Presentations consist of research that addresses important business and societal questions with a focus on information technology. The WISE community is open to a wide variety of research methodologies. WISE welcomes new research related to the broad area of information systems that is supported by economic theories and methods.

We invite the submission of extended abstracts for the virtual WISE 2020 workshop. Submissions will take place through EasyChair.

Submission guidelines

We invite the submission of extended abstracts (maximum of six (6) pages, double – spaced, 12 pt., Times New Roman font, with 1 inch margins, including text, references, figures and tables) of your work, to be considered for presentation at WISE 2020.

Papers should be submitted in PDF format. Submission can be performed via the EasyChair submission portal. If you have not used EasyChair before, you will have to go through a short registration process before submitting your work.

Please make sure to indicate whether the submitted work was student – led (to be considered for the best student paper award)

Submission restrictions

No individual should plan to present more than one paper at the workshop, and the submitting author on each paper should also be the presenting author. Individuals submitting more than one paper will have secondary submissions withdrawn and will be asked to resubmit indicating a different presenting author. To minimize repeated exposure of the same paper, we ask that authors not submit their work that has been scheduled for presentation at WITS 2020. Given the ‘workshop’ nature of this event, we also ask that you not submit work (conditionally) accepted or forthcoming at a journal.


Submission Deadline: September 27th, 2020 (11:59pm EST)
Decision Notifications:  October 30th, 2020
Early Registration Deadline: November 15th, 2020 (The presenting author must be registered by the early registration deadline, otherwise the paper will be removed from the program)

Content considerations

WISE does not assume copyright over accepted work and does not publish formal proceedings. Accepted extended abstracts included in the program will be posted unless otherwise requested by the submitting author.
