Paper Submission

Although the same work may not be presented in both the MSOM conference and a SIG Meeting, authors may have their submission considered by both. To do so, they should only make a single submission to the SIG Meeting and let the SIG Meeting Chair know that they would also like to be considered for the MSOM conference should they be rejected by the SIG Meeting (which has higher priority).

For general conference only submissions please use the OpenConf system to submit abstracts:

http://www.openconf.org/msom2009/

SIGS will use a different submission process; see the SIG Conference section of this Web site for further details.

Important Information to Remember: Author's names should not appear on the title page or anywhere in the extended abstract. Names will be registered by the electronic system. The extended abstract should include at most 6 pages and comply with the MSOM formatting standards (see Submission Guidelines). For papers with multiple authors, the submission must designate one author as the presenter. Participants cannot present more than one talk at the MSOM conference.

At a minimum, each abstract should address the following questions:

  • What is the problem addressed or issue studied by the research?
  • Why is this of interest to the MSOM audience?
  • What are the main contributions from the research?
  • What research methodology is employed to yield these contributions?

The abstract should clearly differentiate completed research from research that is still in process, at the time of submission of the abstract. The abstract should not be a stripped-down abbreviation of a research manuscript, but rather should be an executive summary of your research that addresses the above questions and that makes a convincing case for its inclusion in the conference.
