Hilton Waikoloa Village Resort & Spa has been
described as "a world unto itself" on 62 lush, green acres of the sunny Kohala Coast
of the Big Island of Hawaii, the youngest and largest of all the Hawaiian islands. The Waikola
Village resort area -- which also includes the Waikoloa Beach Resort & Spa
Marriott -- is a stunning oasis arising from a surrounding lava "rockscape"
flowing down the mountainous center
part of the island.
King's Village is a shopping area with a wide range of retail opportunities, from McDonald's and Starbucks to higher end couture shops. There is shuttle service between the two hotels and King's Village.
The conference hotel offers spacious meeting rooms, state-of the art conference facilities, as well as 1200 guest rooms, on-site spa facilities, golf, tennis, shopping, a variety of water sports (including its famous Dolphin Quest adventure), tide pools, waterfalls, beaches, and many other activities for young and old. A mini-train and a mahogany boat carry guests from one end of the property to the other.
Waikoloa Village is 18 miles north of the Kailua-Keahole Kona International Airport (KOA). Travel time from this airport is 20-30 minutes. Taxi service is approximately $40 one-way.
About 15 miles south of the airport is Kailua- Kona, the largest town on the Big Island, but still small by most measures. Hilo, home of the University of Hawaii-Hilo, is on the east shore amid a more rain forest type ecosystem. The town of Waimea, with broad pastures and rolling hills, is on the northern tip of the island.
It is not possible to honor individual requests to
schedule a paper or session for specific days or
times. Please make your travel plans to attend
the conference the entire 4 days of paper sessions

About The Big Island
Getting to the Big Island
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. HICSS is sponsored by the Shidler College of Business, University of Hawai'i at Manoa. The objective of the conference 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 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. The week's 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.
HICSS-40 will be held WEDNESDAY through SATURDAY, January 3-6, 2007 at the Hilton Waikoloa Village on the Big Island. We expect more than 700 individuals from throughout the world to participate in the sessions during the four days of the conference. January is a particularly busy tourist season in Hawaii, so we encourage you to confirm your travel plans as soon as your paper is accepted in August or September, or sooner if your intention to attend is firm. If you will need a visa, be especially aware of the time constraints and requirements for that process.
All registrants are expected to attend the entire four days
of the conference and actively to engage in discussions,
both in and out of the paper sessions. An author should not
submit a paper to the conference if he or she does not anticipate
being able to attend to present and discuss the research. After October 15,
a fee is charged for the cancellation of a registration, and
the paper will not appear in the Proceedings.
Included in the HICSS Conference registration fee:
1. All paper presentations and sessions, Thursday through Saturday.
2. The advanced seminars, tutorials, workshops, and symposia on Wednesday. Each is designed to be an
an intensive short course that serves as a survey of the state-of-the-art knowledge in each subject area, and
to lay the foundation for some of the related paper sessions in the conference.
3. A printed volume of the Abstracts and a CD of the full papers of the Proceedings
4. Distinguished Lecture on Friday afternoon, 5pm
5. Plenary session on Thursday immediately after lunch
6. Buffet lunches Thursday, Friday, and Saturday
7. Receptions of light pupus* on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday
8. Final Luau dinner & professional Hula Show on Saturday night
HICSS offers a unique, highly interactive and professionally
challenging environment that attendees find "very helpful --
lots of different perspectives and ideas as a result of
discussion." HICSS sessions are comprised primarily 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, nor
partial registration. All participants and speakers
(or their organizations) are expected to bear the cost
of their expenses and registration.
HICSS-40 contains the following tracks, or areas of research concentration:
Paper Review and Proceedings Publication:
Papers in each of the HICSS tracks frequently make significant contributions to the application of information systems technology. All papers submitted to HICSS are independently reviewed in a double-blind process by three individuals who are selected for their respective expertise and active involvement in the field of research for the paper(s) under consideration.
Acceptance rates vary from year to year, but have averaged approximately 50% during the past few years. There may be lower rates in mature fields and slightly higher rates when a new area of research is specifically nurtured in its infancy. After a HICSS conference many papers are revised or extended and republished in various journals, transactions and monographs, or may appear as chapters in books.
All accepted papers become part of the Proceedings of the Hawai'i International Conference on System Sciences that are published and distributed by the IEEE Computer Society and carried on the IEEE Digital Library, Xplore.
Each year's papers are published on a CD-Rom distributed at each conference as part of the conference registration material. Prior to the conference Minitrack Chairs nominate candidates for a Best Paper Award (noted in the conference program). Judging for these awards is conducted by panel of judges in each Track, with winners announced on the last day of the conference.
