Track Proposals

The template for Track Proposals is available online. (Updated: 10 Dec 2015)

Evaluation of Track proposals

Each proposal will be evaluated by the program co-chairs. Selection will be based on (a) the overall merit of the proposal, (b) the significance of the subject covered, (c) the profile and diversity of the track team. If needed, track proposals might be merged in order to obtain the best possible coverage of topics and the best mix of track chairs.

Best paper nominations will be evaluated by the program co-chairs.


Track proposals should be e-mailed to  as soon as possible but no later than January 15th, 2016. Notifications of acceptance will be sent out by January 22th 2016. MCIS 2016 Program Co-Chairs may suggest modifications for the received track proposal to improve the potential for a fair number of paper submissions. In case there are proposals for identical or similar topics, MCIS2016 Program Co-chairs might ask you to consider joining forces with another group. Track proposals that do not meet the criteria can be directly rejected by the program chairs.

We look forward to receiving your MCIS 2016 track proposals!
