The European Conferences of Information Systems increasingly attract
co-located. Continuing this trend, the 22nd ECIS in Tel-Aviv, in June 2014
aims to feature a number of co-located workshops. We invite the IS
community to propose Pre-ECIS workshops to be held prior to ECIS2014. The
main event is held on Monday 9th till Wednesday 11th of June 2014 and
workshops can be scheduled on the 7th and 8th of June. Please find more
information about ECIS 2014 at other pages of this website.
The duration of a workshop could be one day or half a day (two-day workshop
proposals will also be considered) and the location will be in the greater
Tel Aviv area. The number of workshops may be limited because of space
You are invited to submit an "intention to submit" workshop proposal any
time until October 1st 2013. This should be an informal email, describing
briefly the theme of the workshop. The idea is to try and give early
feedback to proposers about similar workshop proposals and enable them to
consider merger ahead of time. Please do not hesitate to ask questions or
You are asked to submit a full proposal (up to 2000 words long) for
evaluation by the 1st of November 2013. Please be mindful of specifying in

The decision about acceptance/rejection of workshop proposals will be made
by the Workshops Chairs in consultation with the Conference and Program
Chairs, taking into account venue capacity. Evaluation criteria include
overall quality and the fit with respect to the expected ECIS 2014 program.
Note that proposals are especially encouraged on emerging topics and should
not already be covered by the main conference. The organizing committee will
help in organizing for the rooms and technology and will provide catering at
a fixed cost per participant.
The organizers of accepted workshops will be responsible for their own
reviewing process, publicity (e.g., website and call for papers), and
proceedings production. They will be required to closely cooperate with the
Workshops Chairs and the ECIS 2014 local organizers to finalize all
organizational details. Workshop attendees must pay the ECIS 2014 workshop
registration fee, as well as the conference registration fee. Workshop
registrations and payments will be done via the conference registration
system and thus the payments to the facilities will be taken care of by the
local ECIS organizers. In particular, local organizers may require that all
workshops adhere to specific requirements regarding the general timetable,
registration and catering.
Workshop organizers must inform the Workshop Chairs of the numbers of
submissions and acceptances as these numbers become available. Workshops may
be cancelled for extremely low submissions or registrations at the early
registration deadline. Please note that the duration of the workshop might
be adjusted based on the number of submissions received. Only accepted
workshops are official ECIS 2014 workshops and enjoy support for the
