Submission Guidelines

We invite submissions of completed manuscripts, research-in-progress
papers, panel proposals, and workshop proposals addressing behavioral,
organizational, and technical aspects of information systems.  A computer
lab will be available if needed.

Submitted papers and proposals will undergo a blind review by at least two
reviewers.  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 of the
manuscript (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 submitted electronically in either MS Word, rich text format
(RTF) or PDF.  You may submit a full length (not to exceed six single-
spaced pages with approximately 2,500 words, including all figures, tables,
appendices, and references), original, and previously unpublished,
manuscript. The research may be conceptual, empirical or applied.

Submissions should be sent by email to both program co-chairs at
[log in to unmask] and [log in to unmask] no later than February 5, 2007.  All
communication with the authors of submitted papers will be via e-mail.
Submission acknowledgement, the review process, and acceptance notification
will be managed via email. Instructions for camera-ready copy will be
provided via e-mail to the corresponding authors of accepted papers.

The MWAIS2007 proceedings will be available through the Association for
Information Systems Electronic Library (AISeL). At least one author of each
