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. 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-41 contains the following tracks, or areas of research concentration:

  • Collaboration Systems
  • Decision Technologies and Service Sciences
  • Digital Media: Content and Management
  • E-Government
  • Electric Power Systems Restructuring
  • Information Technology in Health Care
  • Internet and the Digital Economy
  • Knowledge Management Systems
  • Organizational Systems and Technology
  • Software Technology


HICSS conferences are devoted to the most relevant advances in the information, computer, and system sciences, and encompass developments in both theory and practice.   Accepted papers may be theoretical, conceptual, tutorial or descriptive in nature.  Those selected for presentation will be published in the Conference Proceedings.

Submissions must not have been previously published or be under submission elsewhere. Submissions undergo a double-blind peer referee process.  For the latest information about HICSS-41 please visit the HICSS web site http://www.hicss.hawaii.edu
