Special Section on

Future Directions for


Call for Papers


At the pre-ICIS 2009 HCI workshop, Dr. Izak Benbasat and Dr. Kalle Lyytinen gave a keynote panel on the future directions for HCI research in MIS. They each presented their own views, followed by intensive discussions and deliberations with the audience.


To capture the liveliness of the panel discussion, and to continue the dialogue on the future of HCI research in MIS, THCI will be publishing the write-ups of their presentations in the June issue. In addition, THCI is calling for commentaries that are either direct responses to Benbasat’s and Lyytinen’s views (accessible from the links below prior to the June issue, or at THCI website after they are published) or authors’ own opinions on the future directions for HCI research in MIS.
