2011 Pre-ICIS Workshop

The Tenth Annual Workshop on HCI Research in MIS



HCI/MIS 2011

The Tenth Annual Pre-ICIS Workshop on HCI Research in MIS Sponsored by AIS SIGHCI

*** Sunday, December 4, 2011 (One day workshop) Shanghai, China ***



Submissions Due: August 21, 2011

Acceptance Notification: September 25, 2011

Extended Abstracts Due for Proceedings: October 9, 2011

Workshop: December 4, 2011

Building upon past successes of the pre-ICIS HCI/MIS workshops as well as the tremendous interest in broad HCI issues exhibited by MIS colleagues, the AIS SIGHCI will hold its tenth annual pre-ICIS HCI/MIS research workshop prior to ICIS 2011 in Shanghai, China on Sunday, December 4, 2011.


Following the workshop a business meeting will be conducted, and all those interested in the SIGHCI are invited to attend. Following the meeting, we will commemorate the 10th anniversary of the SIGHCI with a special celebration and reception.


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 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 best, complete completed research papers from the workshop will be fast-tracked for publication consideration in the Journal of the Association for Information Systems (JAIS) – http://aisel.aisnet.org/jais/ and AIS Transaction on Human Computer Interaction (THCI) – http://aisel.aisnet.org/thci/


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 have not appeared elsewhere.

Maximum length: Completed research papers, research-in-progress papers, 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 8.5 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 at () 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.

The tenth Annual Workshop on HCI Research in MIS showcased high quality HCI research and attracted a large number of participants. Over 50 people participated in the one-day workshop, held in Shanghai, China on Dec. 4th, 2011. The workshop attracted 43 submissions, which included 27 completed research papers and 16 research-in-progress papers. After a rigorous review process, 12 research papers were accepted for presentation at the workshop, a 28% acceptance rate. The workshop also included 12 poster presentations.

In addition to the paper and poster presentations and speakers, workshop participants enjoyed continental style buffet breakfast, coffee breaks, a special Chinese luncheon, an award presentation (best paper, best reviewer, and outstanding service), and a reception at the conclusion of the workshop. Since this is the 10th anniversary of the SIGHCI, we celebrated this event with a cake to mark the occasion.

The program committee, which consisted of 127 experts in HCI/MIS (a 144% increase from last year), 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 system use and success, interface design and trust, user experience, and web-based systems. Extensions of selected papers from the workshop will be invited to participate in a fast-tracking opportunity with the AIS Transactions on Human Computer Interaction (THCI) and Journal of the Association for Information Systems (JAIS).

This year’s best paper award winner was determined through a rigorous review process. Of the 12 accepted submissions, three 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 three best paper candidates. The best paper award went to “The Impact of Internet Health Information on Patient Adherence: The Role of Perceived Information Asymmetry” by Khaled Hassanein, John Laugesen, and Yufei Yuan.
