The conference registration fee covers all conference sessions, two luncheons, four coffee breaks, and a copy of conference

Final submission format is available at the website
The final version should be submitted electronically via conference submissions system. Manuscripts
Manuscripts must be prepared using
Microsoft Word. The conference follows the format of Academy of Management Journal. This format is available at the AMJ's
website Guidelines and sample pages will be e-mailed with the letter of acceptance and
are available at In general, the paper must be prepared the way you want it to appear in the
proceedings. Authors could choice to publish their full papers or one page abstracts in the conference proceedings (ISSN 1729-9322).
All papers must be original and not published anywhere. However, the authors do not need to transfer copyright of papers or
abstracts included in the proceedings. This means authors could submit their articles for journals or books after the BAI2005
conference. If the authors decide to submit their articles to International Journal of Business and Information (IJBI) or Contemporary
Management Research (CMR), they have to transfer copyright upon accepted.
Best papers will be considered for publication in the International Journal of Business and Information. It is a new journal sponsored
by the Academy of Taiwan Information System Research. The inaugural issue will be published in December 2005.
All papers accepted in conference will be accepted to be published in the Research in Business and Information Studies, a refereed,
serial publication of BAI conference with ISSN number.
Both the International Journal of Business and Information (IJBI) and Contemporary Management Research (CMR) are publications
sponsored by BAI conference and ATISR. IJBI is different from CMR in that IJBI is the premier official journal publication of
ATISR. IJBI applies a much more rigorous and lengthy review process, and it is more selective in the articles it publishes than does
CMR. Whereas CMR is published in conjunction with an annual conference, IJBI is not associated directly with an annual conference.
The papers selected for publication in CMR are expected to be presented at the annual conference. The journal articles published in
IJBI are completely independent of annual conference participation and presentation.
There is no page charge for IJBI. However, the CMR imposes page fees on all accepted manuscripts. These fees are necessary to
offset the very substantial cost of putting a manuscript into print. The CMR page fee is $25.00 per author's single-spaced page.
