2007 Pre-ICIS Workshop

The Sixth Annual Workshop on HCI Research in MIS

Saturday, December 8, 2007 (Pre-ICIS) in Montréal


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 Speaker:

Fred Davis is Distinguished Professor and David D. Glass Chair in Information Systems at the Sam M. Walton College of Business at the University of Arkansas. He gave a keynote speech on “User Acceptance of Information Technology: Research Progress, Current Controversies, and Emerging Paradigms”. The presentation file is available here.

The Sixth Annual Workshop on HCI Research in MIS showcased high quality HCI research and attracted a large number of participants. Over 66 people participated in the one day workshop, held in Montreal, Canada. The workshop attracted 33 submissions, which included 17 completed research papers, 14 research-in-progress papers, and 2 poster submissions. After a rigorous review process, 23 papers were accepted for presentation at the workshop (with 11 research papers and 12 poster presentations), a 71% acceptance rate.

The workshop included a key note speech by Dr. Fred Davis, Distinguished Professor and David D. Glass Chair in Information Systems at the Sam M. Walton College of Business at the University of Arkansas, on user acceptance of information technology. In addition to the paper and poster presentations and speakers, workshop participants enjoyed Euporean style buffet breakfast, coffee breaks, 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 79 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 technology acceptance and online trust, system users, Web interactivity, online content, media presentation, and affect in IT. 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 11 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 “Positive and negative affect in IT evaluation: A longitudinal study”, by Ping Zhang and Na Li.

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 Greg Moody.

Traci Hess received an outstanding service award for her efforts with SIGHCI. She has served in the following positions: chair (2006-2007), workshop co-chair of HCI/MIS workshop (2004-2006), AMCIS HCI track co-chair (2003-2005) and minitrack co-chair, Workshop local arrangement co-chair (2003), and co-editor of numerous SIGHCI sponsored special issues.
