The 6th International Conference on Information and Knowledge Systems (ICIKS 2023) will be held at University of Portsmouth between the 22th and 23th June. The ICIKS 2023 will bring together academics, researchers, practitioners and other professionals from around the world and provide opportunities to highlight recent advances in the fields of Information Systems, Artificial Intelligence, Knowledge Management, Decision Support and Digital decision tools. We welcome submissions on theoretical developments and applications of all these fields. The ICIKS 2023 will also provide opportunities to share ideas, expertise and networking. The ICIKS 2023 seeks to promote discussions on various organizational, technological, and socio-cultural aspects of research in the design and use of information and knowledge systems in organizations. Considering the large amount of data, information, and knowledge created and used in the organizations, especially with the evolution of information and communications technology platforms, organizations under the process of digital transformation constantly search for innovative concepts and creative applications. More importantly, ICIKS aims beyond the predominant role of technologies, seeking discussions on the essential interactions between individuals, who are the ultimate technology users. The ICIKS 2023 will introduce a Best Paper Award to recognize and promote quality contributions to academic research. All papers submitted and published in the ICIKS 2023 conference publications are eligible for competition for the Best Paper Award. A special Award Selection Committee will select, score and rank the best submitted papers based on their originality, quality, positioning and writing style. A signed award certificate with the name of the award, the name of the paper, and the names of the authors of the paper. The authors of awarded paper will be offered a free registration for the 7th version ICIKS. The award will be announced during the closing session and released on the conference website.
Best Paper Award The ICIKS 2023 will introduce a Best Paper Award to recognize and promote quality contributions to academic research. A special scientific committee will assess, score and rank all the papers submitted in the ICIKS 2023 conference. The Best Paper Award selection process goes through four phases: (1) An initial score will be assigned to all submitted papers during the review process based on innovation, significance to research community, scientific quality and technical excellence. (2) A shortlist composed of the seven accepted papers receiving the highest scores in the review process are chosen as candidates. The authors of the selected papers will be informed one week before the start of the conference and the candidates will be announced on the homepage. (3) The scientific committee members will score the candidate papers based on communication and presentation capabilities. The paper receiving the highest score by the Scientific Committee members will be awarded the Best Paper Award. (4) The award will be announced during the closing session and released on the conference website. A signed award certificate will be delivered to the awarded candidate.
