AMCIS 2008 Track on Human-Computer Interaction Studies in MIS
Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) is an interdisciplinary field that has attracted researchers, educators, and practitioners from different disciplines. HCI has gained attention during recent years due to the rapid development and advancement in information and computer technology. To better use 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 study these issues in organizational, business, and personal contexts or take these contexts into consideration in their studies.
The potential interest in an HCI track at AMCIS 2008 is demonstrated by:
The high level of participation in AIS SIGHCI-sponsored conference tracks. SIGHCI currently sponsors/supports HCI tracks/mini-tracks at AMCIS, ECIS, PACIS, ICIS, HCII, and HICSS.
The high level of participation in the HCI tracks/mini-tracks at AMCIS 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, and 2007. The last few HCI tracks at AMCIS have each included around 40 papers presented in 13-14 well-attended sessions.
There are approximately 500 current members in AIS SIGHCI.
This increasing trend of interest and enthusiasm was exhibited by the large number of submissions and the high level of participation during the last few years. A meta/mega track is necessary so that (1) it is possible to attend to specific research areas within HCI in MIS, (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 submissions in this area can be more efficiently and better managed.
The aim of this track is consistent with the HCI in MIS track/mini-track in previous years at AMCIS. We want 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 HCI in MIS, including 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 papers.
We are pleased to announce that the International Journal on Human-Computer Studies (IJHCS) has agreed to publish expansions of the best, completed papers from participating minitracks at the HCI track at AMCIS 2008. Our special thanks go to the Editors-in-Chief of IJHCS, Dr. Enrico Motta and Dr. Susan Wiedenbeck, for their support of HCI research and AIS SIGHCI. Continuing the AIS SIGHCI tradition, we believe that this fast-tracking opportunity with a high-quality refereed academic journal will promote HCI research in the MIS community. The guest editors for this special issue will be Matt Germonprez, Chuck Kacmar, and Gabe Lee.
HCI researchers wishing to participate in this fast-tracking opportunity through the AMCIS HCI track should submit their papers to the participating HCI mini-tracks listed below. SIGHCI’s policies regarding fast-tracking with SIGHCI sponsored special journal issues and best paper awards at conferences are available at http://sigs.aisnet.org/sighci/sig_policies/.
As a meta/mega track for the HCI in MIS area, we will help coordinate the efforts of organizing the various mini-tracks and channel any misfit in submissions to an appropriate mini-track. To continue the SIGHCI tradition, a high quality refereed academic journal is being planned for a possible special issue based on the expansions of the best papers from the meta/mega track. All HCI mini-tracks are welcome to jointly participate in this special issue. Of course, if an HCI mini-track has its own plans for working with a different journal, we respect that and will help out in any way we can.

Hedonic Information Technologies: Online Games, Interactive Entertainment, and Lifestyle ComputingMini-Track Chairs
Paul Benjamin Lowry
Some of the most dramatic recent developments in computing have been the explosive growth in interactive digital entertainment (IDE), and social and lifestyle computing - or the non-business use of computing for purposes of entertainment, socialization, and lifestyle augmentation. The market for gaming is currently about $7.3 billion dollars, with $936 million in online gaming. Meanwhile, the market for digital entertainment in homes and home automation has reached an all-time high in 2005. These non-business uses of computing represent large and legitimate markets with social implications that are so profound and global in impact that affected societies will never be the same. Gaming has long been an extension of artificial intelligence research, but its many social, economic, and business implications have long been ignored by academic researchers.
Research in interactive digital entertainment and lifestyle computing is even more sparse. Given the magnitude of impact that interactive digital entertainment and lifestyle computing will have on the world, this mini-track will explore and foster unaddressed social, business, and technical research in these areas. These topics are a natural extension of and complement with related research in the HCI track.
Possible Topics: Example topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following aspects of online interactive digital entertainment (IDE) and lifestyle computing:

Emerging Computer-Mediated Communication Tools/Technologies for Web-based ServicesMini-Track Chairs
Shu Z. Schiller
Applications of innovative Computer-Mediated Communication (CMC) tools and technologies have reached a new height in support of communications in business and education on the Internet. For example, web-based live text chat and co-browsing have been used to enhance the user experience during online customer service. Agents, avatars, and automatic payment systems have been used to assist users in online purchasing. In addition, hyper video and e-books are now widely used in e-learning, and highly personalized user interfaces using tools, such as RSS and gadgets, are rapidly gaining popularity on the Internet. Given the novelty of these tools and technologies, the theme of the mini-track is (1) to understand and explore the design, use, and evaluation of innovative CMC tools and technologies in web-based services, and (2) to advance theories and construct theoretical models to improve our ability to understand and explain their impact.
Possible Topics: This mini-track encourages theoretical and empirical (both quantitative and qualitative) studies drawing from various research disciplines. Studies using innovative research methodologies or multi-methods are especially welcome. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

Personalization SystemsMini-Track Chairs
Advancement in technologies (e.g., Internet, mobile and wireless technology, and ubiquitous technology) has made personalization possible and available. Personalization has been recognized as an important concept in IS research and has received considerable attention from both academia and industry. Many practitioners and researchers are investigating into various issues of personalization. Yet, there is a lot to be known about personalization technologies, personalization applications, and their impacts.
This mini-track addresses all the issues related to designing, developing, implementing, and evaluating personalization systems from the technical, behavioral, economical, or managerial perspectives. Through this mini-track, we aim to examine technologies for personalization, users’ attitude, intention, and perception towards 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.

HCI and Competitive AdvantageMini-Track Chairs
Jan Marco Leimeister
This mini-track addresses an issue that has been skirted both by the ACM Computer-Human Interaction Community and the AIS-Human-Computer Interaction Community, that is, what value do efforts in human-computer interaction provide to the overall corporation, and what competitive advantage might the skills and activities performed by HCI personnel give to business operations? The mini-track is therefore looking for papers that address this larger issue not just in terms of a return on investment that might be achieved in various focused areas of HCI, e.g., web site development that brings repeat business, but also in areas, such as the redefinition of business processes, the suggestion of new markets, the creation of new products and services, the capture of unique information, the building of brand loyalty, the use of service engineering that ties a product with its service infrastructure, the better management of knowledge throughout the corporation, and the use of HCI in developing successful corporate strategies. Furthermore, information is needed on what are the critical success factors for the management of HCI functions within organizations.
Human-computer interaction, because it has focused on the study of human behavior with the intent of generating appropriate designs that support the smooth integration technology with humans, is a field that is posed to move beyond that of simply running evaluation studies or investigating reasons for individual acceptance or adoption of technology. HCI is a field that has developed a myriad of methods for observing, modeling, and interpreting human behavior in order to obtain technology designs and technology infrastructures that make human activities more productive and products more attractive. These same methods could apply, in the large, to corporate strategy. Similar to work in organizational behavior that has demonstrated that managing human capital appropriately can achieve productivity gains and add significantly to corporate knowledge, there exist demonstrations in human-computer interaction that illustrate that it, too, has these same potentials. A classic example is that of making interfaces usable enough so that data entry work is done by customers rather than hired personnel. Another example exists in the redesign of workflow in collaborative work research which uses computer interfaces to manage complex work re-direction negotiations. A third example exists in software development wherein software update management systems take over monitoring functions enabling a company to pursue the cost advantages of virtual teams.
