The Paperathon was piloted at ICIS 2017 and—based on positive feedback from participants, mentors, and journal editors—has been refined and repeated at every ICIS since. The goal of this “paper hackathon” is to facilitate new research collaborations, help scholars develop their research ideas while making new professional connections, and—for the most promising projects—to accelerate a publication review process. The Paperathon begins with an intense two-day working session where researchers are organized into interest-related project teams to collaborate under the mentorship of prominent IS scholars.
