Call for Papers

Pre-ECIS 2020 Workshop - Gamification Revisited – Adaptive and Intelligent Gamification Designs - European Conference on Information Systems 2020 ( in Marrakech, Morocco.

Workshop Homepage: - Official ECIS Workshop Information:

The use of games in IS has increased at an astounding pace and led to inspiring trends, one being gamification which counts among the most prominent developments in the last years. Meanwhile new ways of creating individualized gamification concepts have developed. First of all, research calls for more concepts that support developers of gamification concepts in getting away from so-called “one-size-fits-all” solutions. In doing so, more personalized and adaptive gamification designs are needed to create individual gamification experiences that can be adapted to the needs of specific user groups by considering cross-discipline theories such as self-determination or different competitive and cooperative mechanisms, and task complexity and challenge structures and user habits, personality traits & preferences.
In this workshop, we will develop a research agenda concerning the below outlined topics (see fast track opportunities also below).

Topics include but are not limited to:
-Concepts and empirical insights on individualized gamification concepts
-Artificial intelligence and gamification
-NeuroIS and gamification
-Analysis of user needs and preferences in gamification
-Role and meaning of context and culture in developing gamification concepts
-Motivational affordances and their role and meaning in gamification
-User adapted gamification concepts and their influences on user behavior
-Analysis of the meaning of competition and collaboration in gamification
-Digital nudging concepts that draw on mechanisms of gamification


Submission of full papers or research in progress papers by 30.04.2020
Optional submission of position statements before the conference (due date 31.05.2020) – see below!
Workshop will be held on June 14 (date fixed) as a full day workshop, at the Congress Palace Mogador in Marrakech.


This workshop is starting point for a AIS Transactions on Human-Computer Interaction (AIS-THCI) special issue that is planned for publication in mid of 2021 (submission deadline approx. Jan 2021) and edited by the workshop chairs.
In this workshop, we will develop a research agenda for the planned AIS-THCI special issue.
In addition, we offer fast tracking possibilities to promising full papers in advance of the special issue.


We will accept research in progress papers (7 pages) as well as full papers (15 pages) (References included in page count, single spaced pages, Times New Roman 11pt). The template is based on the ECIS 2020 template and can be downloaded here:

Additionally, all other interested researchers can attend at the workshop. A short position statement (half to one page) is required for researchers that are interested in writing up a panel report (see below). The following types of position statements that express the authors interest in user-centered designs in gamification are welcome:
1.Current Empirical Research: What is happening now?
2. Research Questions: What will happen, how can we analyze it and/or what are necessary design efforts?

Interested researchers can submit their papers by sending them as PDF document and a list of all authors with their affiliations and e-mail addresses to the workshop organizers Sofia, Andreas, and Dezhi ([log in to unmask]; [log in to unmask]; [log in to unmask]).

Each paper submission will be reviewed non-anonymously in a juried process in accordance with their fit to the workshop goal. We intend to provide feedback to each of the participants submission. Position statements are not reviewed and solely serve the purpose to facilitate the workshop.
