Submission Guidelines

Faculty, graduate students, and independent scholars are invited to submit completed research papers, research in progress papers, or extended position statements in the area of Systems Analysis and Design. Issues addressed in submissions can range from the creation of new systems analysis and design formalisms and development methods (grammars and methods), to the evaluation of new or existing formalisms and methods by examining issues involving their use (scripts and context), to polemic arguments on the potential value of the approach. Given the broad range of issues in this call, submissions can be anchored in any of a range of research method, including formal analysis, systems development (design science), experiments, case studies, and field studies.
