The purpose of the HICSS Conference is to provide a forum for the interchange of ideas, research results, development activities and applications among academicians and practitioners in the information, computer, and system sciences. HICSS-31 will consist of advanced seminars, tutorials, open forums, task forces, plenary lectures, a distinguished guest lecture, and the presentation of accepted manuscripts which emphasize research and development activities in several areas of the system sciences. The best papers, selected by the program committee in each of these areas, are given an award at the meeting. There is a high degree of interaction and discussion among the conference participants because the meeting is conducted in a workshop-like setting. All registrants are expected to attend the entire conference and actively engage in these discussions.

Because HICSS is a nonprofit activity funded entirely by registration fees, all participants and speakers are expected to have their organization bear the costs of their expenses and registration. HICSS is sponsored by the University of Hawai'i College of Business Administration.
