Call for Papers (pdf)

Welcome from the Conference Chair

Fresh off of a great Conference in 2023, with record attendance, we look forward to the next opportunity for sharing research and teaching pedagogy at a conference known for its collegial group of Information Systems and Computing educators.

Our first submission deadline is June 17, for inclusion in the Proceedings, an invitation to submit for journal publication, and for Conference award consideration. Too soon? The second deadline, July 15, still gets you included in the Proceedings and an invitation to submit for journal publication.

Our 2024 Conference is set for November 6-9 in Baltimore, Maryland at the Sheraton Inner Harbor Hotel. Baltimore’s Inner Harbor is one of America's oldest seaports with a bustling mix of eateries, stores, museums and entertainment venues. Visit the National Aquarium, one of the largest in the U.S. or tour the Heritage Ships anchored in the harbor. Bring a guest to make the conference an even better experience.

Yours sincerely,

Paul D. Witman, Ph.D.

Conference Chair
On behalf of the 2024 Conference Team
and all members of ISCAP

All cancellations or changes must be in writing and sent to publisher@isedj.org.

Virtual Registration

ISCAP recognizes that participants may have limited ability to travel due to institutional restrictions or underlying health concerns. This year’s conference will have a limited virtual option for accepted papers. Authors will have the ability to present their work live, engage with peers who are at the conference site, and view/engage with other paper presentations from one breakout room (approximately 35 presentations). Accepted papers for the virtual option are eligible for awards, journal publications, and conference proceedings per the published deadline dates for the in-person conference.

During registration, authors will indicate whether they intend to attend the conference in-person or virtually. Virtual registrations must be requested by October 20. We will do our best to accommodate changes if space permits. Previous registrations can be changed from virtual to in-person or vice-versa. Those who change from virtual to in-person will be charged an additional $100. Those who change from in-person to virtual be refunded $100. Refer to the cancellation policy for specifics regarding refund procedures.

The number of virtual attendees will be limited and is at the discretion of the conference committee. The total number of virtual attendees will be determined by the virtual registration deadline, October 1.

Virtual presentations will occur between 9:00 am and 4:00 pm, Eastern Standard Time. A session chair will be present to coordinate virtual conferencing software and facilitate the in-person audience question and answer portion.
