Hyatt Regency Kauai

Regency Kauai Resort and Spa is a luxurious 602-room resort recognized as one of
the best places in the world. It is located on 50-ocean front acres of the
southern coast of Kauai, built into the hillside overlooking Keoneloa Bay. The
hotel’s architecture recalls Hawaii of the 1920’s and 1930’s, a time that was
relaxing and calm, much like the entire island, perhaps even now the most
“laid-back” of all the Hawaiian islands. For HICSS attendees, the hotel offers
19 meeting and banquet rooms, and features several outdoor party areas with
ocean and lagoon views.
For HICSS guests, the resort features six restaurants and six cocktail lounges on the property, as well as 12,000 square feet of retail shops offering fine art, clothing, and jewelry, as well as an assortment of gifts and sundries. Within a 2-mile radius are Poipu Shopping Village, Old Koloa Town, and the Spouting Horn where you can find a wide variety of unique Hawaiian items and handiwork.
travel time from the airport (Lihue) is 30 minutes. Taxi service is
approximately $40 one-way.

HICSS-39 will be held WEDNESDAY through SATURDAY,
January 4-7, 2006. We expect at least 600 individuals from throughout the
world to participate in the sessions during the four days of the conference.
is a particularly busy tourist season in Hawaii, we encourage you to confirm your travel plans as soon as possible.
HICSS conferences offer a unique, highly interactive and professionally challenging environment that many attendees find "very helpful -- lots of different perspectives and ideas as a result of discussion." HICSS sessions are comprised of refereed paper presentations; the conference does not host vendor presentations. Because the conference operation is funded almost entirely by registration fees, HICSS is not able to subsidize registrations or offer reduced fees. All participants and speakers are expected to have their organization bear the costs of their expenses and registration. There is no partial registration for HICSS.
HICSS 39 offers the following tracks, including two new ones on E-Government and on Knowledge Management Systems:
Papers in each of these tracks have in recent years made significant contributions to the application of information systems technology. Each paper is independently reviewed in a double-blind process by three individuals who are selected by the Minitrack Chair for that paper. Each Minitrack Chair also nominates a Best Paper, with winners chosen by a panel of judges and announced on the final day of the conference.
The selection of reviewers/referees/program committee members is at the discretion of each Minitrack Chair, who is charged with choosing individuals who are distinguished, knowledgeable and actively involved in the field of research for the paper(s) under consideration. HICSS's overall acceptance rate for papers averages 50%, with lower rates in mature fields and slightly higher rates when a new area of research is specifically nurtured in its infancy. After HICSS many papers have been republished in various journals, transactions and monographs, or have appeared as chapters in books.
events consist of advanced seminars, tutorials, workshops, open forums, task
forces, symposia, plenary lecture, a distinguished guest lecture, and the daily
presentation of accepted manuscripts which emphasize research and development
activities in several areas of the system sciences. HICSS is recognized
particularly for its high degree of discussion among the participants during the
week. Paper sessions are conducted in a workshop-like setting to specifically
encourage this type of interaction.
Please note: 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. An author should not register for the conference if he or she does not anticipate being able to attend the conference.
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 Administration.
Proceedings of the Hawai'i International Conference on System Sciences are published and distributed by the IEEE Computer Society. All HICSS papers are included in the Computer Society's Digital Library and indexed by the Computer Society and the IEEE.
