To facilitate the blind review, include the title of the paper, names, affiliations, mailing addresses, e-mail addresses, and phone numbers of all authors on a cover page submitted as a separate document from the body of the manuscript. Include only the title of the paper at the beginning of the manuscript. In the case of multiple-authorship, designate the corresponding author with a footnote on the cover page. Please do not include any author or affiliation identification on any page (except the separate cover page), in headings/footers, or in the properties of the submitted file. Previously published work or work under review elsewhere is not eligible for submission. All submissions should be posted electronically in either MS Word or PDF. A style sheet for heading formats & citations can be found here .

The proceedings will be available through the Association for Information Systems Electronic Library (AIS eLibrary). At least one author of each accepted paper must register for the conference no later than April 10, 2017 in order for the paper to be included in the conference proceedings.
