AMCIS 2004 Track on
Human-Computer Interaction Studies in MIS

General Description


Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) is an interdisciplinary field that has attracted many researchers, educators, and practitioners from many different disciplines. HCI has gained even more attention during recent years in which technology has developed at a fast pace. To better utilize this advanced technology, we need to better understand users, their tasks within different contexts, and the interplay among users, tasks, and contexts/ environments.

In the MIS field, broad HCI issues and research questions have been investigated over a long period of time. Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) or Human Factors studies in MIS are concerned with the ways humans interact with information, technologies, and tasks, especially in business, managerial, organizational, and cultural contexts. MIS researchers are interested in macro level analyses and issues, and they study these issues in the organizational/business contexts or take these contexts into consideration in their studies.

The high level of interest exhibited by MIS scholars in broad HCI studies has been demonstrated in many ways:

  1. High number of hits from queries to the ISWORLD Faculty Directory on research and teaching in HCI related areas (see Zhang et al., 2002 in CAIS);
  2. High level of participation (submitting, reviewing, attending) in HCI minitracks at AMCIS 2002 and 2003. The HCI in MIS minitrack was among the most popular ones for both AMCIS 02 and AMCIS 03, and the submission number outperformed any other single minitrack in 2003;
  3. High energy desmonstrated at the two pre-ICIS annual research workshops, 2002 and 2003.
This increasing trend of interest and enthusiasm indicate a need and the possibility to have multiple minitracks inside a meta/mega track of HCI in MIS, so that
  1. specific research areas within the HCI in MIS area can be fully attended,
  2. more HCI researchers can be involved, play important organizing roles, and make an impact in this area, and
  3. the overall reviewing process for this area can be more manageable and efficient.
The aim of this track is consistent with the "HCI Studies in MIS" mini-track in previous AMCIS conferences, which is to provide a forum for AIS members to acknowledge each other's work, and to discuss, develop, and promote a range of issues related to the history, reference disciplines, theories, practice, methodologies and techniques, new development, and applications of the interaction between humans, information and information technology. In an effort to bridge academic research and industry practice, both research articles and experience reports are welcome. The track is open to all types of research methodologies (e.g., conceptualization, theorization, case study, action research, experimentation, survey, simulation). We also welcome visionary articles and research in progress.

This year, there are 7 mini-tracks that are sponsored by the AIS SIGHCI and are under the HCI track. The first 6 mini-tracks emphasize on specific areas of HCI, and the 7th is for papers that do not fit in any of the first 6 mini-tracks but are within the broad HCI coverage. At AMCIS, mini-tracks are the entities to accept papers, thus all papers have to be submitted to a specific mini-track. Mini-track chairs are responsible for the review process and outcome of papers in the mini-tracks.

Authors are encouraged to submit their work to the most appropriate mini-tracks. If a paper submitted to the HCI mini-track can be a better fit in another mini-track, we will convince the author(s) to move the paper to that mini-track. If you have questions regarding a specific mini-track, please contact the chair(s) of that mini-track directly.

Guidelines for Submission

  • Submit abstracts via email to the corresponding mini-track chair(s) by February 1, 2004. This is an important step to ensure that you have submitted your paper to the correct mini-track.

CFP of HCI Mini-track 1: Accessibility

Chairs: Eleanor T. Loiacono-Mello (, Scott McCoy (, Nicholas C. Romano, Jr. (Nicholas-Romano@MSTM.OKState.EDU)


Accessibility is the ability of persons, regardless of ability, to easily access information, regardless of form, structure, or presentation. Fifty-four million Americans-nearly one in five-live with some form of disability (cognitive, visual, or audio) that makes accessing information difficult. Though great strides have been made during the past decade to accommodate those with special needs (including the development of numerous assistive technologies), there is still much to be done. For example, as the Internet and World Wide Web become an integral component of daily life, Web accessibility becomes more vital.

Accessibility goes beyond making information available for people with disabilities. Increasing accessibility may in turn increase use of systems by users without disabilities as well. Those with less powerful computers or slow Internet connections may find it preferable to purchase from accessible-friendly websites that require less bandwidth. For example, some might find it beneficial to surf the Web with the graphics function turned off, thus decreasing download time. Given this broad definition of accessibility, a number of research perspectives are expected from such areas as Information Systems, Information Science, Library Science, Education, Computer Science, and Engineering.

Potential topics and research questions that this Mini-track would address includes but is not limited to:
  • Accessibility
  • Internet and Web Accessibility
  • Assistive Technology
  • Adaptive Technology
  • Accessibility within Workforce
  • Usability

CFP of HCI Mini-track 2: Personalization Systems

Chair: Il Im (

Personalization is one of the new phenomena that the Internet has brought to reality from imagination. As personalized services and products are becoming more common on the Internet, the interest on personalization is growing. Many practitioners and researchers are investigating into various issues of personalization. Yet, there is a lot to be known about personalization technologies and their impacts.

Through this minitrack, we aim to examine technologies for personalization, the impacts of personalization, and better ways for personalizing products and services. We welcome empirical research through quantitative or qualitative methodologies including novel conceptualizations of information systems, analytical modeling approaches, case studies of implementations and experimental or prototyping-based studies.

The following topics are indicative of the areas that are of particular interest:
  • Personalization technologies such as recommendation systems and intelligent software
  • Theories and models for better understanding of personalization
  • Applications of personalization technologies
  • Impact of personalization systems on users' behavior
  • The impacts of personalization systems on business
  • Identifying and implementing users' various personalization needs
  • Best practices of personalization
  • Cross-cultural issues of personalization
  • Metrics for personalization success

CFP of HCI Mini-track 3: Pervasive Information Systems

Chairs: Starr Roxanne Hiltz (, Quentin Jones (


Pervasive information systems use increasingly ubiquitous and connected computing devices to allow people to work with information anywhere, at any time. These systems can be embedded in the environment, augment user's everyday experiences in a "contextualized" fashion, or be worn. Just as the PC transformed both business and personal life in the 1990s, a new generation of information appliances is transforming our lives including how we work, are entertained and study, manage our home environment, and are governed.

This Mini Track solicits papers on the social issues and impacts associated with any "pervasive" or "highly mobile" system. In particular, it calls for studies of pervasive information systems and:
  • Privacy. Ubiquitous computing conjures visions of big and little brother, and ever-diminishing privacy. But it also opens up new forms of communication, collaboration and social relations.
  • Community. Pervasive information systems can be used to support communities of practice, geographic community, and virtual community by enabling location or context aware data capture and retrieval. They can be used to support social interaction and face-to-face communication. Such services could be based on the ability to either track individuals as they go from one location to another or detect when they interact with each other or with various "smart" objects embedded in the space.
  • Commerce. Ubiquitous computing enables new forms of commerce including M-commerce (mobile), L-Commerce (location), and S-Commerce (silent). This mini-track is interested in ubiquitous computing enabled commerce with a direct user or social impact.

CFP of HCI Mini-track 4: IT Implementation and Use: Going Beyond Intentions and Perception

Chairs: Andrew Schwarz (, Wynne W. Chin (


IT management is constantly under attack. Budgetary pressures and a global competitive business environment have forced the IT department to make an immediate impact upon their organizations that is quantifiable and directly measurable. While the type of technology has changed through the years, practitioners have faced an enduring battle to justify new IT systems and their influence upon productivity and efficiency.

The academic literature has a long tradition of understanding how people use technology, with early innovation researchers such as Gabriel Tarde (1903) introducing the S-shaped diffusion curve and Bryce Ryan and Neal Gross (1940's) studying the diffusion of hybrid seeds among Iowa farmers. Recently, work by Everett Rogers (1983) and Fred Davis (1989) have included the perceptions of individuals and how these cognitive orientations link towards technology usage. While such work has helped us focus on intentions and perceptions, the next step is linking them to the bottom-line impacts that IT and business management needs to understand.

This mini-track is devoted to examining different types of technology usage and perceptions as they link to individual and organizational performance. Some possible topics include:
  • Studies that seek to define new measures and new types of productivity and usage, both at the individual and/or organizational levels.
  • Research that examines the relationship between technology acceptance and different types of usage
  • Investigations into technology diffusion and the organizational impact of the rate of diffusion

CFP of HCI Mini-track 5: Information Retrieval and Human Language Technologies

Chairs: Praveen Pathak (, Dmitri Roussinov (


As knowledge becomes a central productive and strategic asset, the success of organizations increasingly depends on their ability to effectively gather, produce, maintain, and disseminate information and knowledge. Modern corporate knowledge bases contain large numbers of manuals, procedures, documentation, expert knowledge, e-mail archives, news resources, and technical reports - all in the form of unstructured natural language text. That is why, the importance of processing information stored in unstructured form is growing at a rapid pace and is as vital as processing the data stored in the structured form (relational tables). However, finding, interpreting and summarizing relevant information contained in the free text form still remains an extremely challenging task, requiring collaboration of multiple disciplines. The field of Human Language Technologies is currently emerging from such disciplines as Information Retrieval (IR), Artificial Intelligence (AI), Computational Linguistics (CL), and Human Computer Interaction (HCI), and has been gaining significant attention among academicians and practitioners. This mini-track invites theoretical, experimental, or applied papers that are expected to advance this field.

Possible topics include, but are not limited to the following:
  • information retrieval, extraction, filtering and summarization
  • text mining, semantic similarity discovery, maps, domain modeling and ontology-building
  • WWW, network, hypertext -based information retrieval systems
  • natural language interfaces
  • question answering systems
  • topic detection and tracking
  • evaluation and testing of knowledge management systems
  • user interfaces for knowledge management systems, user models and profiling
  • hypermedia/multimedia indexing and retrieval
  • integrating knowledge sources and knowledge representation techniques
  • integrating databases and text retrieval systems
  • commercial applications of knowledge management systems, search engines
  • security aspects of knowledge management systems, deception detection in communication

CFP of HCI Mini-track 6: Emergency Response Information Systems (Co-sponsored by SIGDSS)

Chairs: Murray Turoff (, Bartel Van de Walle (


Any aspect of the design, development, deployment, operation, or evaluation of emergency response systems are appropriate for this mini-track provided it focuses on the tools, functionality, and/or interface the system provides to human users involved with emergency and crisis response. Also papers that focus on requirements for this environment and/or the impact or relationship of such systems to the behavior of the individuals or organizations involved are equally welcome.

Papers that focus on the underlying technology or hardware of computers, networks, sensors, mobile devices and their improvements in such areas as throughput, accuracy, and security, should be directed to other appropriate sessions. An exception might be any special purpose input/output device for direct use by respondents to a crisis situation.

This mini-track is concerned with the functionality that Emergency Response Information System provides for those involved in:
  • Training for a crisis situation
  • Planning for the response to a crisis situation
  • Responding to a crisis situation
  • Evaluating the performance during and after the crises
