Call for Papers
The Hilton Waikoloa Village is a resort sometimes
described as "a world unto itself" on 62 acres of the sunny Kohala Coast
of the Big Island of Hawaii, the largest of the Hawaiian islands. The green,
lush landscape of the Waikola Village is a surprising oasis arising from
the surrounding lava rockscape flowing down the mountains from the center
part of the island. The hotel offers spacious meeting rooms, state-of
the art conference facilities, as well as 1200 guest rooms, on-site golf,
tennis, shops, activities, and watersports (including its famous DolphinQuest
HICSS-37 will be held MONDAY
through THURSDAY, January 5-8, 2004. We expect more
than 600 individuals from throughout the world to participate in the sessions
during the four days of the conference.
HICSS-37 offers nine tracks:
Papers in each of these tracks have in recent years made significant contributions to the application of information systems technology. After HICSS many papers have been republished in various journals, transactions and magazines, or have appeared as chapters in books. To be accepted at HICSS, all manuscripts are rigorously reviewed by people actively involved in each paper's subject area. The Best Paper awards on the final evening will be selected by a program committee in each of the Track areas.
The week's events consist of advanced seminars, tutorials,
workshops, open forums, task forces, plenary lectures, a distinguished guest
lecture, and the daily presentation of accepted manuscripts which emphasize
research and development activities in several areas of the system sciences.
There is always a high degree of interaction and discussion among the
participants at a HICSS Conference because the week's sessions are conducted
in a workshop-like setting. All registrants are expected to attend the entire
four days of the conference and actively to engage in these discussions,
both in and out of the paper sessions.
Included in the HICSS registration fee:
Since 1968 the Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences (HICSS) has become a respected a forum for the substantive interchange of ideas in all areas of information systems and technology. The objective of HICSS is to provide a unique environment in which researchers and practitioners in the information, computer and system sciences can frankly exchange and discuss their research ideas, techniques and applications. To realize this objective and to facilitate lively discussion and interaction, the format is carefully structured, and the number of available registrations is limited. Comments and feedback from each HICSS conference indicate that the conference format continues to be professionally rewarding and stimulating to everyone who attends.
HICSS is sponsored by the University of Hawai'i at Manoa
College of Business.
Proceedings of the Hawai'i International Conference on System Sciences
