The Paper-a-thon 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-a-thon is to facilitate new research collaborations, help scholars develop their research ideas while making new professional connections, and—for the most promising projects—accelerate a publication review process.

In a paper-a-thon, researchers are organized into interest-related project teams with the goal of developing a research idea “from scratch” under the mentorship of prominent IS scholars in a very short timeframe. We encourage participants to arrive with ideas about potential projects, yet we also ask that you remain open-minded to project ideas that emerge through collaboration with your project team and the mentor.

Paper-a-thon always concludes with each group pitching their research projects to a panel of senior scholars / journal editors, who will select several papers to be presented on the last day of ICIS. The finalist papers are published below in the ICIS 2021 Paper-a-Thon section of the AIS Library
