Call for Research Track Submissions:

April 10-14
Hyatt Regency Miami

The ASIS&T Information Architecture Summit is the premier annual gathering
for information architects.  At this time, we are issuing an advance Call
for Papers for the IA Summit research stream.

Research papers provide an opportunity to present original contributions to
the research, theory, and practice of information architecture. Submissions
should demonstrate an awareness of relevant literature, both empirical and
theoretical, while clearly indicating the importance of the research to IA
practice. In addition, submissions to the research stream must include the
full text of the paper, not just an abstract. All research papers will
undergo a blind peer-review. Accepted papers will be included in the digital
conference proceedings and made publicly available on the conference

Although we are seeking original research contributions, this does not mean
that your submission must strictly conform to the traditional format for
scholarly research papers. The exact nature and format of the paper lies
with the author. However, regardless of the format, research papers should
still meet accepted scholarly standards for quality, clarity, validity, and
originality.  Papers will typically be between 3000 and 5000 words (roughly
6-12 pages), plus references and supporting images and tables as required.
The maximum length for research papers is 7000 words.

Although the research stream intends to encourage contributions from
academic researchers, we strongly encourage anyone to submit research
papers, including practitioners and students. Affiliation with an academic
institution is not required to submit a research paper.

Approximate dates for research track submissions:

November 2007:  Full papers due
January 2008:  Notification of acceptance
Early March 2008: Revised full paper in PDF due for inclusion in electronic

Additional details about submission requirements will be available later
this year on the conference website at http://www.iasummit.org .  In the
meantime, please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.
