Transdisciplinary DSR Research Tracks

Submissions will designate a preferred research track. Track chairs will manage the review process to ensure a minimum of two substantive peer reviews.

View List of Research Tracks

Paper Submission

Full research papers and research-in-progress papers related to design science research are welcome. Submitted manuscripts should follow the guidelines below:

  • All submissions must be formatted according to the Springer LNCS guidelines
  • The page limit for full research papers is 12 pages, which includes all related pages (including first page, references, etc.)
  • The page limit for research-in-progress papers is 6 pages, which includes all related pages (including first page, references, etc.)
  • All paper submissions must be anonymized for double-blind review

Prototypes Submissions

The Prototypes Track is intended to showcase implementations of innovative IT artifacts (i.e., constructs, models, methods). The track provides an opportunity to demonstrate and discuss emerging IT artifacts with researchers and practitioners. Submissions for the Products & Prototypes Track should comprise the following sections in no more than 6 pages (including first page, references, etc., and formatted according to the Springer LNCS guidelines):

  • Title page with information about the designers
  • Design of the artifact (e.g., problem statement, use cases, intended user groups, description of features)
  • Significance to research (e.g., innovativeness of the artifact)
  • Significance to practice (e.g., usefulness of the artifact)
  • Evaluation of the artifact (e.g., in laboratory or field settings)
  • If available, screencast of or link to an implementation of the artifact

Panel and Workshop Proposals

Panel sessions bring together researchers and/or practitioners with complementary or conflicting perspectives on a research topic or another issue of importance to the field of Design Science Research. Submitted proposals should follow the guidelines below:

  • Introduction: General description of the panel or issues to be discussed or debated
    Controversial Issues and Panelists’ Positions: Issues that will be discussed and the names of those who will take opposing viewpoints
  • Structure: Description of timing of the session and the format of interaction among participants and with the audience
  • Participation Statement: A statement that all participants have made a commitment to attend the conference and serve on the panel if the panel is accepted
  • Biographies: A brief description of each participant’s background, including expertise related to the topic and views of the issues
  • References

Publications

The DESRIST Proceedings with the full research papers accepted to the conference will be published in Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS).

Best Paper Award

We will award three prizes: (1) the best paper of the conference, (2) the best student paper, and (3) the best prototype.

Opt-out Policy

Authors of accepted research-in-progress and prototype papers can choose whether their manuscript should be included in the LNCS proceedings or not.
