17th International Conference on
Information Systems Development (ISD2008)
Paphos, Cyprus
August 25-27, 2008



Overall, there were 165 submissions to ISD 2008. Of those, 99 were accepted for publication (i.e., 60% acceptance rate).

Furthemore, a large number of 218 persons accepted our invitation and were included in the Program Committee (later on, a few of them withdrew for various reasons).

Based on this, each reviewer was assigned with the evaluation of exactly 3 papers, resulting to 3-4 reviewers per paper (later on, some reviewers ended up reviewing more or less papers for various reasons, such as for example withdrawals of other PC members). Eventually, a total of 543 review reports were submitted by the Program Committee (i.e., each paper has received an average of 3.29 reviews).

In more detail, the exact numbers of submissions (and the acceptance rate) for each of the conference's 15 tracks is shown in the following two figures (click to enlarge):

In more detail, the exact number of accepted/rejected papers per track are also shown in this spreadsheet  (opens in an HTML page).
