The Fourth Annual Workshop on HCI Research in MIS
** Saturday, December 10, 2005** (Pre-ICIS) in Las Vegas, Nevada

General Description


Human-computer interaction, or "the interaction between humans, information, technologies, and tasks, especially in business, managerial, organizational, and cultural contexts" (AIS, 2004), represents one of the five main research streams in IS (Banker & Kauffman, 2004). This is because we interact with computers nearly everywhere, affecting not only the way we work, but many other aspects of our lives too. The design of these interactions with computers, whether as individuals, groups or societies, should be informed by psychological, social and technical knowledge. This track aims to reflect advances in these sources of knowledge. We welcome papers on HCI research that have theoretical, empirical, design, methodological, and practical implications for human-computer interaction.

Examples of specific topics include (but not limited to):
  • Psychological and social aspects of HCI
  • New HCI techniques and technologies
  • Personalization and adaptive interfaces
  • Website design
  • Interface designs on new platforms such as mobile technologies
  • Usability engineering and measurement
  • Building online trust
  • Design methodologies
  • Design implications of diversity in users and environments
  • Impacts on life at work and home as design considerations

Workshop Summary Top of page arrow

The Fourth Annual Workshop on HCI Research in MIS showcased high quality HCI research and attracted a large number of participants. Over 60 people participated in the one-day workshop, held in Las Vegas, Nevada. The workshop received 42 submissions, which included 32 completed research papers and 10 research-in-progress papers. After a rigorous review process, 14 papers were accepted for presentation at the workshop. The 33% acceptance rate represents the lowest number in the history of the workshop, which speaks well of the quality of the papers accepted for this workshop.

The workshop included a key note speech by Dr. Dennis F. Galletta, AIS Fellow and Professor of Business Administration at the Joseph M. Katz Graduate School of Business, at the University of Pittsburgh, on publishing HCI research in MIS journals. In addition to the paper presentations and speakers, workshop participants enjoyed breakfast, coffee breaks, lunch, an award presentation (outstanding service, best paper, best reviewer, outstanding service, and logo contest winner), and a reception at the conclusion of the workshop.

The program committee, which consisted of 72 experts in HCI/MIS, has made outstanding contributions to the success of the workshop by providing high quality feedback on the submissions. The paper sessions covered a range of interesting HCI topics including culture and mobile design; conceptual modeling and technology awareness; technology acceptance enablers; online decision making; and multitasking and ubiquitous computing.

This year’s best paper award winner was determined through a rigorous review process. Of the accepted submissions, four papers were selected as best paper candidates based on overall review scores, best paper nominations, and input from each of the Program Co-Chairs. Best reviewer candidates were then asked to independently rank the four best paper candidates. The best paper award went to “The Role of Similarity in e-Commerce Interactions: The Case of Online Shopping Assistants", by Sameh Al-Natour, Izak Benbasat, and Ronald T. Cenfetelli.

The best reviewer award was determined by the Program Co-Chairs based on the following criteria: thoroughness of the reviews, helpfulness of the suggestions and feedback, clarity and organization of reviews, timeliness in returning the reviews. The best reviewer award went to Khawaja Saeed.

Fiona Fui-Hoon Nah received an outstanding service award for her efforts with SIGHCI. She was recognized for updating SIGHCI bylaws and the first election, organizing the first HCII conference session, and for helping dialog and bridging with other HCI associations/communiaties. She has also served as program chair of the first three annual pre-ICIS HCI workshops. She has also fast-tracked and co-edited special issues from SIGHCI sponsored workshops/conferences.

We would like to thank the following individuals and organizations who greatly contributed to the success of the workshop:
