Submission Instructions

Thank you for your interest in presenting at the 2020 Annual Conference of the Decision Sciences Institute in San Francisco, California (USA).  Submissions for the Conference are now being accepted via our Ex Ordo Conference Management System (CMS).

Follow the step by step Instructions to submit your papers:

The Ex Ordo Conference Management System (CMS) will accommodate submissions of Full Papers, Abstracts, Panel Proposals, Workshop Proposals, and Award Competitions.  

    • Full Paper submissions can be submitted to any Track.  Full Papers will be peer-reviewed and, if accepted, will be published in the conference proceedings, in addition to being scheduled for presentation at the 2020 Annual Conference of the Decision Sciences Institute.  Full Papers that are not accepted to be published in the conference proceedings may still be accepted for presentation.  Full Papers that are incomprehensible or filled with egregious errors will not be accepted.  Please prepare your Full Paper submission document following the guidelines in the 2020 Initial Full Paper Submission TEMPLATE.
    • Abstract submissions can be submitted to any Track. Abstracts are generally accepted by default unless deemed inappropriate for or incompatible with the track to which it was submitted, or to the theme of the 2020 Annual Conference of the Decision Sciences Institute. Abstracts are not published in the conference proceedings.  Abstracts that are incomprehensible or filled with egregious errors will not be accepted. Please prepare your Abstract submission document following the guidelines in the 2020 Annual Meeting of DSI Abstract, Panel Proposal, or Workshop Proposal Submission TEMPLATE.
    • Panel Proposal submissions can be submitted to any Track. Panels proposed generally bring together expertise to discuss research trends, issues, and concerns. Panels proposals can also bring together expertise to discuss new research or pedagogical methods.  Ideally, names of panelists should be included in any Panel Proposal. Please prepare your Panel Proposal submission document following the guidelines in the 2020 Annual Conference Panel Proposa Submission Form.
    • Workshop Proposal submissions can be submitted to the Workshops track. They are sessions intended to help attendees learn new methods to improve the conduct of research; the conduct of curriculum design, delivery, and evaluation; or the conduct of professional services (e.g., reviewing).  Please prepare your Workshop Proposal submission document following the guidelines in the 2020 Annual Meeting of DSI Abstract, or Workshop Proposal Submission TEMPLATE.
    • Award Competition submissions for the Best Teaching Case Studies Awards, the Elwood S. Buffa Doctorial Dissertation Award, and the Instructional Innovation Award Competition  are available under link Award Competition Submission in the Conference Management System.
