Program & Format:This workshop is intended to discuss current unpublished work or new research topics related to the economics of information systems. The workshop will consist of a series of paper presentations followed by discussant comments. We also plan a keynote address and select panel discussions.
Location:Arnold and Mabel Beckman Center of the National Academies is located on the UC Irvine Campus in Irvine, Orange County, Southern California.
Submissions:Authors should submit extended abstracts of their work for consideration at WISE that are no more than 5 pages long including text, diagrams, tables and references. These abstracts should be e-mailed to: by the deadline (September 10, 2005). PDF is the preferred format, but any format readable by Microsoft Word is acceptable. As this is a work in progress conference, abstracts will be evaluated based on the potential research contribution and the ability to stimulate interest and discussion at the conference. Proposed work should be sufficiently completed by the time of the conference to enable an interesting and stimulating presentation and discussion. Completed papers are not required. However, as a courtesy to our discussants, authors with accepted papers should be prepared to provide at least an outline of the results to the discussant approximately 2 weeks prior to the conference.
Participation:Due to its highly interactive workshop nature, the number of WISE participants is limited. Priority will be given to presenters in this year's program, and participants in prior WISE programs. Due to the expected high demand for the limited number of presentation slots, individuals will be limited to a single presentation opportunity.
Area of Interest:
