2008 Pre-ICIS Workshop

The Seventh Annual Workshop on HCI Research in MIS


Saturday, December 13, 2008 (Pre-ICIS) in Paris, France


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:

Jane Carey is an Associate Professor and the Director of the Center for Global Management at the School of Global Management and Leadership at Arizona State University West. She gave a keynote speech on “HCI: Reflections on the Discipline and the Community”.


  • The perceptual, behavioral, cognitive, motivational, and affective/emotional aspects of human and their interaction with IT

  • User task analysis and modeling

  • Digital documents/genres and human information seeking behavior

  • Informed user interface design and evaluation for all types of business and organizational applications such as:

    • B2B, B2C, C2C E-Commerce

  • Issues in software learning and training

  • Gender and technology

  • Issues related to the elderly, the young, and special needs populations

  • Other human factors issues related to human interaction with technologies


The workshop will be accepting high quality research papers (completed research or research-in-progress papers) and posters that describe novel, early, and creative research ideas. The submissions should not be currently under review elsewhere and the papers/posters should not have appeared elsewhere.

Maximum Length: Completed research papers, research-in-progress, and posters must not exceed 14, 7, and 3 single-spaced pages, respectively. The page limit includes all text, figures, and tables, but does not include the cover page, abstract, keywords, and references.

File formats: Only Word file formats will be accepted. All submissions must be formatted for 8½ x 11 inch paper (1 inch = 2.5 cm) and have 1 inch margins all around. Please use Times New Roman 12-point font with single spacing for the body of the paper. The first page of the manuscript should have a title, the type of the submission (complete research,research in progress, or poster), total word count of the submission, an abstract of 150 words or less, and a list of 5-6 keywords.

Submissions will undergo a double-blind review process. Authors should agree to provide timely reviews of at most two other submissions, if requested. Manuscripts should be in MS Word format and be submitted as email attachments to the workshop program co-chairs: Khawaja Saeed (), Hock Chuan (), and Xiaowen Fang () with the subject heading “HCI/MIS workshop submission.” Authors can use the body of the email as the cover letter for the submission and should ensure that their identities do not appear in any part of the manuscript.


Extended abstracts of all accepted papers will be published in the workshop proceedings. This inclusion should not affect full versions of the papers to be published later in journals. Please follow the format and requirements of the camera-ready version.

Proceedings Submission Guidelines:

Authors of accepted papers should make sure that their final camera-ready versions follow the proceedings guidelines that can be downloaded in Word Format. Each completed research paper and research-in-progress paper should have no more than 5 proceedings pages with an abstract of no longer than 150 words. Each poster paper should have no more than 1 proceeding page with no restriction on the length of the abstract (i.e., the authors can choose to include a long abstract or a short abstract with some text and references, as long as they fit into one page).

Authors of accepted papers should make sure that the following steps are taken:

The Seventh Annual Workshop on HCI Research in MIS showcased high quality HCI research and attracted a large number of participants. Fifty people participated in the one day workshop, held in Paris, France. The workshop attracted 45 submissions, which included 28 completed research papers and 17 research-in-progress papers. After a rigorous review process, 12 papers were accepted for presentation at the workshop, a 27% acceptance rate. The workshop also included 13 poster presentations.

The workshop included a key note speech by Dr. Jane Carey, Associate Professor and Director of the Center for Global Management at the School of Global Management and Leadership at Arizona State University West, on HCI: Reflections on the Discipline and the Community. In addition to the paper and poster presentations and speakers, workshop participants enjoyed coffee breaks, lunch, and an award presentation (best paper, best reviewer, outstanding service, and special service).

The program committee, which consisted of 76 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 IT decision and support; acceptance of web-based systems; users and interactivity; and trust and empowerment. 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 12 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 “Website Design, Trust and Culture: An Eight Country Investigation”, by Diane Cyr.

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, and timeliness in returning the reviews. The best reviewer award went to Richard Johnson.

Weiyin Hong received an Outstanding Service Award for her efforts with SIGHCI. She has served in the following positions: chair (2007-2008) and workshop co-chair for the Pre-ICIS workshop in 2007 and 2008. She has also been a member of the program committee for the Pre-ICIS workshops since 2004, as well as a member of the local organizing committee and a session chair for the 2005 Pre-ICIS workshop. She was nominated for the best reviewer award for the 2004 Pre-ICIS workshop. Na (Lina) Li was also presented a Special Service Award for her years of service as Newsletter Editor since 2003.

  • Dr. Jane Carey, Associate Professor and Director of the Center for Global Management at the School of Global Management and Leadership at Arizona State University West, for providing a stimulating and insightful keynote speech.

  • The 76 program committee members played an important role in shaping the content of the workshop and greatly aided the advancement of HCI research in Information systems by providing high quality feedback on the submissions.

  • The local organizing committee members, Soussan Djamasbi, Andrea Everard, and Horst Treiblmaier, managed the student volunteers, and on-site logistics for the workshop.

  • The doctoral student volunteers, Sameh Al-Natour, Christopher Harle, and Greg Moody, helped out with various aspects of the workshop onsite.
