WISE 2009 will accept submissions in two formats: Extended abstracts for research-in-progress and full papers for completed unpublished research. When submitting your work, designate clearly below the title whether the submission is an extended abstract or full paper and include the word count for everything.

Submitting research-in-progress: Authors should submit extended abstracts of their work in progress that are no more than 6 pages in length (single-spaced, 12 pt font, 1 inch margins) including figures, tables and references. These submissions will be evaluated based on the potential research contribution and the ability to stimulate interest and discussion at the conference. Proposed work should be sufficiently complete by the time of the conference.

Submitting completed but unpublished research: Authors should submit a current draft of a completed working paper. The paper should not have been accepted for publication at the time of submission.  We recommend that submissions do not exceed 32 pages (plus up to an additional two title and abstract pages) of 12-point, doubled spaced text.

WISE does not assume copyright over work accepted for presentation and does not publish conference proceedings.

The deadline for submissions is Tuesday September 15, 2009. The preferred format is PDF, but any format readable by Microsoft Word is also acceptable. Please indicate if the submitted work is part of a doctoral student's dissertation. Coauthored works should be submitted under the name of the author that will be presenting if accepted, and submissions are limited to one per person.
