Minitracks at the HICSS conference 2022

Organization of three minitracks

The Chair Application Systems (IWI-AS) is again co-organizing three minitracks at the Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences (HICSS) and cordially invites contributions.

1. Artifical Intelligence-based Assistants Minitrack

After the successful organization of two full sessions in 2021, the track will be organized for the second time in 2022. It focuses on virtual personal assistants and chatbots, such as Amazon Alexa and Google Home, which are changing the way people interact with application systems. They are already present in many areas of the digital economy and employ technologies such as natural language processing, predictive analysis, machine learning, speech recognition and generation. AI-based assistants unlock business value, for example, by automating processes, intensifying customer interaction, reducing errors and accelerating interactions. Contributions for this minitrack should address innovative approaches, methods, models, processes etc. for designing and understanding the use of such assistants.

2. Human-centricity in a Sustainable Digital Economy Minitrack

For the third time, this minitrack invites contributions regarding improvements of human-centricity in the digital economy. The provision of digital services and solutions to end users raises serious concerns, such as issues of online privacy, the management and explainability of information systems, manipulation by end users and even fake news, at the same time. The development of human-centered and user-enabling information systems is seen as an approach to "digital sustainability", i.e. the provision of novel and personalized services to end users, taking into account possible negative multidimensional consequences of digital transformation. The minitrack aims at promoting the understanding of human-centricity and the empowerment of end-users.

3. Social Information Systems Minitrack

For the fifth time, this minitrack addresses the area of social information systems, such as social networking platforms, online and content communities, collaborative project management tools and technologies and crowdsourcing websites, which support the collaboration among individuals and organizations. The aim of this minitrack is to promote scientific exchange on social information systems, especially with regard to the economic, organizational and technological challenges.

The 55th Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences (HICCS) will be held in Maui from January 4-7, 2022. Thank you for considering to submit your work to one of these minitracks! Submissions are due until June 15, 2021.
