Submission categories

We invite submissions of short papers (5-9 pages, excluding references) or long papers (10-20 pages, excluding references) in the following categories:

  • Full research papers: reporting original research results in the area addressed by the workshop. You should report original and finished research, which is based on solid research questions or hypothesis. 10-18 pages.
  • Work-in-progress papers: provide an opportunity to present early ideas and receive feedback on research-in-progress. You should describe original, but unfinished research, which should be based on solid research questions or hypothesis. 5-9 pages.
  • Position papers: raising relevant questions in the workshop area, identifying problems, and providing a glimpse of solution for a given problem and these papers are typically short. Representing a basis for discussion, a position paper does not necessarily need to include solutions to its stated problems. 5-18 pages.
  • Idea papers: exploring the history, successes, and challenges of IS development from a socio-technical perspective. Contrary to position papers, idea papers should provide the in-depth analysis of a problem, review its existing solutions, demonstrate insufficiency of these solutions, and suggest new (not yet evaluated but well argued) solutions. 5-18 pages.
  • Experience reports: presenting challenges encountered in practice, success, and failure stories. An experience report should clearly describe the working context and be focused on the problems and on the lessons learned. 5-18 pages.

As with the previous editions of STPIS we are planning to produce online proceedings via CEUR services.  CEUR proceedings are indexed by DBLPGoogle ScholarScopusCiteSeer/CiteSeerX, etc. For Scandinavian researchers, the publisher is in the Norska systemet rated as level 1 (which is the highest level for the conferences and workshops). The proceedings for the previous editions of STPIS can be found here:

Special issues:

In addition to the proceedings, we will organize a special issue in Complex Systems Informatics and Modeling Quarterly where selected papers related to that topic will be invited to be extended and submitted for review to the special issue. These papers will have to pass a double-blind peer review process. More information about the journal is on:

In addition to that, selected papers related specifically to the topic of socio-technical perspectives on learning and digital work, will be invited to be further extended and submitted to Journal of Workplace Learning. More information about the journal is on:
