2022 Full Research Papers

- We are now accepting submissions -



iConference papers push the boundaries of information scholarship, explore core concepts and ideas, and help identify new technological and conceptual configurations.

Full Research Papers should present new and original research results from empirical investigations and experiments, or from theory and model development. Full Papers must break new ground and provide substantial support for its results and conclusions. Papers presenting a new system design or implications for design are also encouraged. Submitted papers must be original work, not published elsewhere.

iConference Full Research Papers undergo a rigorous double-blind review process, managed by the Full Research Papers Chairs in consultation with the Program Chairs. Confidentiality of submissions is maintained during the review process. Papers will be scored on innovation, contribution and quality of thought and writing. Submitted papers must be original work, not published elsewhere.  

All accepted papers will be presented virtually during iConference 2022; presentation instruction will be provided with acceptance notifications. Accepted papers will be published in Springer’s Lecture Notes in Computer Science series and will therefore be indexed by major services such as Web of Science and ScopusAuthors are also allowed and encouraged to deposit their work into the IDEALS open repository if they so choose.

The Lee Dirks Award for Best Paper will be awarded to the best Full Research Paper. The Lee Dirks Award 2022 is sponsored by Springer with a sum of $1,000.

Springer encourages authors to include their ORCIDs in their papers. In addition, the corresponding author of each paper, acting on behalf of all of the authors of that paper, must complete and sign a Consent-to-Publish form. The corresponding author signing the copyright form should match the corresponding author marked on the paper. Once the files have been sent to Springer, changes relating to the authorship of the papers cannot be made.”
