Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences (HICSS)

The Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences (HICSS) is one of the longest-standing continuously running scientific conferences in the world. It brings together researchers from over 40 countries to participate in a free exchange of scientific ideas and best practices. The conference's unique format and structure include:

  • A matrix structure of tracks and themes that enables research on a rich mixture of computer-based applications and technologies
  • Three days of research paper presentations and discussions in a workshop setting that promotes active participation
  • A full day of Symposia, Workshops, and Tutorials
  • A keynote address and distinguished lecture which explore particularly relevant topics and concepts

The 49th Annual HICSS Conference (HICSS-49) will take place 5-8 January 2016, where IDPP will contribute in several ways:

IDPP Executive Director Dr. Derrick L. Cogburn has participated in the conference for the past seven years, and an IDPP team of faculty have presented research at HICSS for the past four years. HICSS-49 will mark the fifth consecutive year that Dr. Cogburn and Dr. Michael J. Hine, Associate Professor of Information Systems at the Sprott School of Business at Carleton University, will co-lead the Global Virtual Teams Minitrack. For the past four years, Dr. Cogburn and Dr. Hine have also co-led the "Cross Cultural Communication in Accessible Global Virtual Teams" workshop at HICSS.
