HICSS-41 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.
The conference operation is funded entirely by
registration fees; therefore, 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
HICSS-41 contains the following
tracks, or areas of research concentration. A paper may be submitted
to any minitrack in one of these tracks, but not to more than one
minitrack or more than one track:
- Collaboration Systems and Technology
- Decision Technologies and Service Sciences
- Digital Media: Content and Management
- Electric Power Systems Restructuring: Engineering,
- Information Technology in Health Care
- Internet and the Digital Economy
- Knowledge Management Systems
- Organizational Systems and Technology
- Software Technology
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.
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.
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.
year's papers are published on a CD-Rom distributed as part of the
Proceedings included with conference registration material. Prior
to the conference Minitrack Chairs nominate candidates for Best Paper
Awards. Judging for Best Papers is conducted by panel of judges
in each Track, with winners announced after lunch on the last day of
the conference. (Nominees are noted in the conference program).
