The conference will feature a variety of presentation formats (Lightning Round presentations, breakout sessions, roundtable sessions, etc.), which incorporate Microsoft technologies into business, information systems, computer science, and technology curriculum [see Call for Presentations]. For curriculum packages and research papers, these refereed submissions will undergo a double-blind review [see Call for Curriculum Packages and Research Papers].

Call for Presentations

Presentation submissions are separate from curriculum package and research paper submissions.

Microsoft invites faculty to submit presentation proposals beyond formal curriculum packages and research papers with a focus on Microsoft technologies utilized in business, information systems, computer science, and technology curriculum. Presentation examples could include but not limited to in-progress research, curriculum under development, current developments in Microsoft technology, success stories or other topics of interest to the academic community. Submissions should include an abstract of 1 to 2 pages describing the presentation. Accepted submissions will be presented at the conference and abstracts will appear in the proceedings.

A specific presentation format will be highlighted at the conference: Lightning Round Presentations. This type of presentation, usually around 10 minutes in length, is designed to be short and concise. The presentations will be delivered one after another within a set block of time. By including Lightning Round Presentations at the conference, there will be more time to have many faculty speakers present a multitude of topics. Your goal as a presenter is to articulate your topic in a quick and impactful way.

Please note presentations will be scheduled as Lightning Round Presentations, breakout sessions, or roundtable sessions as determined by the review board. Please reach out to dynaa@microsoft.com if you have any questions regarding the presentation formats.

Call for Curriculum Packages and Research Papers

Curriculum package submissions that include materials for delivering Microsoft technology-oriented instruction in the higher education classroom are invited.

In addition, submissions of completed research addressing issues related to Microsoft Dynamics and other Microsoft solutions and applications are invited. Research may be basic, applied, or pedagogical but should contribute to the body of knowledge in the subject areas outlined above. Case studies that demonstrate these attributes will also be considered.

Accepted curriculum packages and research papers will be invited for presentation at the conference, and extended abstracts or summaries will be included in the proceedings. Top-refereed submissions will be considered for publication in the Journal of Integrated Enterprise Systems [ISSN: 2168-197X (Print), 2162-9285 (Online)].
