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 (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 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
- Panel 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
The DESRIST Proceedings with the full research papers, research-in-progress papers, and prototypes papers accepted to the conference will be published in Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS). Authors of selected papers will be invited to submit revised and extended versions of their work for fast-tracked submissions in journals of our discipline.
Best Paper Award
Two awards will be given out: the best paper of the conference, and, the best student paper.
Authors of accepted research-in-progress and prototype papers can choose whether their manuscript should be included in the LNCS proceedings or not.
