2006 Pre-ICIS Workshop

The Fifth Annual Workshop on HCI Research in MIS

Saturday, December 9, 2006 (Pre-ICIS) in Milwaukee


Workshop Objective:

The objective of the workshop is to provide an open and constructive discussion forum of important HCI research in Information Systems that addresses the ways humans interact with information, technologies, and tasks – especially in the business, managerial, organizational, social and/or cultural contexts. HCI in MIS is concerned with the macro level (versus the micro level) of Human-Computer Interaction analysis. The purpose of the workshop is to identify important HCI/MIS problems and innovative research approaches.

The organizing committee is looking for interesting and novel research ideas as well as studies that address important HCI problems in today’s organizations by drawing upon theories and/or methodologies from all relevant reference disciplines.

Keynote Speech:

In this year’s keynote presentation, Dr. Joe Valacich will report on the state of HCI research publications in premier IS journal outlets. The presentation will integrate and extend recent research on this topic by Valacich, Fuller, Schneider, and Dennis (ISR 2006), Zhang and Li (JAIS 2005), and Dennis, Valacich, Fuller, and Schneider (MISQ 2006). Publication opportunities for IS research in general and HCI research in particular will be reported. The characteristics of HCI research published in premier journals over the past five years (2000-2005) will be discussed. In addition, the keynote speech will address the potential impact of these publication opportunities on promotion and tenure for HCI academics.

Kent Foster, with Microsoft Higher Education Faculty Programs, addressed the topic of faculty and student research opportunities at Microsoft Research. He provided a history of the Microsoft Research group and also outlined the available programs (http://research.microsoft.com/ur/us/default.aspx) and funding opportunities (http://research.microsoft.com/ur/us/fundingopps/default.aspx). A copy of his presentation is available here.


The Fifth Annual Workshop on HCI Research in MIS showcased high quality HCI research and attracted a large number of participants. Over 65 people participated in the one day workshop, held in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The workshop attracted 26 submissions: 14 completed research papers and 12 research-in-progress papers. After a rigorous review process, 13 papers were accepted for presentation at the workshop, a 50% acceptance rate.

The workshop included a key note speech by Dr. Joe Valacich, The George and Carolyn Hubman Distinguished Professor of MIS at Washington State University, on premier IS publication opportunities and faculty productivity. The workshop also included a lunch speaker, Kent Foster with Microsoft Higher Education Faculty Programs, who addressed faculty and student research opportunities at Microsoft Research. In addition to the paper presentations and speakers, workshop participants enjoyed continental breakfast, lunch, an award presentation (best paper, best reviewer, and outstanding service), and a reception at the conclusion of the workshop.

The program committee, which consisted of 40 experts in HCI/MIS, 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 interface design and use, knowledge transfer and collaboration, information search, problem solving, and trust, deception, and privacy. Extensions of select papers from the workshop were invited to participate in a fast-tracking opportunity with the Journal of the Association for Information Systems.

This year’s best paper award winner was determined through a rigorous review process. Of the 13 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. A best paper award committee was then formed and each member was asked to independently rank the four best paper candidates. The committee included Izak Benbasat, Dennis Galletta, Matt Germonprez, and Scott McCoy. The best paper award went to “Examining the Role of the Communication Channel Interface and Recipient Characteristics on Knowledge Internalization”, by Christopher L. Scott and Saonee Sarker.

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 Mark Fuller.

Scott McCoy received an outstanding service award for his efforts with SIGHCI. He has served in the following positions: chair (2005-2006), workshop co-chair of HCI/MIS workshop (2003-2005), AMCIS HCI track co-chair (2004-2006) and minitrack co-chair, ECIS HCI track co-chair (2006), and co-editor of numerous SIGHCI sponsored special issues.
