A total of 1023 manuscripts was submitted to the 25 conference tracks with 304 being accepted. All papers were peer-reviewed and it has been an honor that the program chairs decided to award a Best Reviewer Award to Rainer Alt from the Chair of Application Systems.

It is considered one of the most prestigious gatherings of information systems academics and research-oriented practitioners in the world."
