The Paper-a-Thon is a new type of track for PACIS 2019. The goal of this track is to offer new research opportunities between experienced and junior researchers. After PACIS 2019, three papers will be invited for a fast-tracked review process for possible publication in sponsoring journals as early as within five months. Those looking to participate in the Paper-a-Thon should submit a 1-2 page proposal describing what they can contribute to the session (e.g., data, method, perspective, domain expertise). There are three main parts to the Paper-a-Thon:


Brainstorm” – Bring your data, theory, phenomenon, or good writing skills. Meet others who can complement what you have.









Write” – Write fast. You have less than 24 hours to write an extended abstract of your paper.
Pitch” – You have five minutes to present your work in front of editors and other senior scholars.
