44th Annual Meeting: Decision Analytics—Rediscovering Our Roots
The Decision Sciences Institute (DSI) invites contributions to the 2013 Annual Meeting in the following categories: Refereed Research Paper, Non-Refereed Research Abstract, Panel Proposals, and Miniconference Proposals. Authors can choose to submit a refereed research paper that will receive reviews from at least two referees or submit a non-refereed research abstract of 50 words or less (500 characters maximum). If accepted, refereed research papers will be published in the Proceedings (available in CD-ROM format only) and scheduled for presentation during the annual meeting. Non-refereed research abstract submissions will be scheduled for presentation but will not be published in the Proceedings. Acceptance of research abstracts, research papers and panel proposals are subject to the final approval of the track chairs. Miniconference proposals will be evaluated for possible inclusion in the annual meeting by the program chair.
All submissions for the annual meeting must be made using the online Conference Implementation System. Brief instructions for using the system are provided in the following section. Further details will be available on the conference submission site.
Any individual author or co-author may submit up to a combined total of three refereed research papers, non-refereed research abstracts and/or panel proposals to the annual meeting. (This does not include invited papers and miniconferences.) By submitting a refereed research paper or non-refereed research abstract, the author certifies the manuscript is not copyrighted, has not been accepted for publication in a journal, has not been presented or accepted for presentation at a professional meeting, and currently is not under review for presentation at another professional meeting. (Material printed in its entirety in any conference proceedings is considered published.) Furthermore, the author certifies his/her intention to attend the meeting and present the paper or abstract during its scheduled time. Due to the large number of papers, it isn't feasible to honor attendees' requests for specific time slots for their presentations. The copyrights for all forms of presentation at the Institute's annual meeting shall remain with the authors.
