The Student Track enables students to actively participate in the conference. It is aimed at Master-level students who are interested in either an IT-related position in the business world or in a doctorate in business informatics.
The Student Track offers a platform where students, scientists and practitioners can meet and get to know each other in a professional discourse. Students from all locations and fields of business informatics are invited to submit high quality papers. Students who do not submit their own contribution are also welcome to attend the sessions and participate in the Student Track’s framework program. The Student Track is open for different main topics of Business Informatics. We invite contributions that deal with the design and use of information and communication systems in organizations from different perspectives. The Student Track provides the freedom to consider individual thematic orientations of the students.

Submission and review process
Students may submit either work-in-progress papers or completed qualification papers that were submitted no more than ten months ago. Track Chairs will assign the submission to one of the above categories. The format and length of the submissions must comply exactly with the requirements of the main conference. The format template is available for download on the conference website.- Papers can be written in German or English. English contributions should be presented and discussed in English during the conference.- The participation of the supervisors as co-authors of the submission is welcomed. In this case the students will act as first authors and present their work at the conference. Group work by several students is also possible.- Authors are asked to anonymize their contributions for the review process by omitting their name, address, etc. in the contribution. All other information that allows conclusions to be drawn about the authors, e.g. metadata, should also be deleted. The submission of the contribution for the review is done as a PDF document.- The submission of papers should only be done online via the conference system of the main conference- Submitted papers will be evaluated in the regular review process of the conference. Students will receive differentiated professional feedback from at least two independent reviewers of the program committee (double-blind).
Accepted completed qualification papers will be presented in the conference paper session and published in the conference proceedings. Work-in-Progress papers will be presented in a poster session, which is open to all conference participants. Papers presented in the poster session will not be published in the conference proceedings. – The conference proceedings will be made available to the conference participants in electronic form (PDF/E- Book). - The publication of a paper and its inclusion in the conference program requires that at least one author has registered for the conference and paid the conference fee.
