Workshop: December 14, 2014

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 twelfth annual pre-ICIS HCI/MIS research workshop prior to ICIS 2014 in Auckland, New Zealand on Sunday, December 14, 2014.

WORKSHOP SCHEDULE (registration required):

  • Paper discussions: 8:00am-9:20am and 10:40am-3:10pm with networking opportunities during breakfast, coffee breaks, lunch break, and reception.
  • Panel discussion on HCI and mobile computing research opportunities in Asia Pacific, 9:30-10:30am. Panelists: Zhenui “Jack” Jiang (National University of Singapore), Andrew Burton Jones (University of Queensland), Kai Lim (City University of Hong Kong), and Ping Zhang (Syracuse University)
  • Poster Presentations and Doctoral Student Roundtable Paper Discussions: 3:30-4:10pm.
  • Business meeting (open to all, registration is not required): 4:10-5:10 pm.


The objective of the workshop is to provide an opportunity for HCI researchers to come together and build a dynamic community for open and constructive discussions and exchange of ideas.


The workshop will include paper and poster presentations, a panel discussion, and a roundtable session.

If you are a doctoral student and your research falls under the broad domain of Human-Computer Interaction, you may be interested in submitting your work to this inaugural roundtable. It is being organized with the aim of showcasing doctoral student led research, while further supporting students through feedback provided by a number of seasoned HCI scholars. Each accepted doctoral student led research paper will be assigned to one table with the author in attendance, and a discussion of the research will be led by a senior HCI scholar.

The workshop concludes with a business meeting. This meeting is open to all SIGHCI members as well as to all of those non-members who are interested in SIGHCI.


The workshop will be accepting high quality research papers as completed or research-in-progress papers, or doctoral student led roundtable papers. Additionally, the workshop will be accepting work that describes novel, early, and creative research ideas as posters. Authors should identify their submission as “Completed Research”, “Research in Progress”, “Posters”, or “Doctoral Student Roundtable Paper” on the first page below the title. Submissions will undergo a double-blind review process. The submissions should not be currently under review elsewhere, and they should have not appeared elsewhere. All accepted submissions will be published in the workshop proceedings, which are available electronically in the AIS digital library.

Manuscripts should 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.


Maximum length: Completed research papers, research-in-progress papers,  doctoral student roundtable papers, and posters must not exceed 14, 7, 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.

An Outstanding Service Award was given to Richard Johnson for his outstanding leadership as the Chair of SIGHCI (2013-2014) and as the Co-Chair of SIGHCI workshops at ICIS 2013 and 2014.


Over 40 people participated at the Thirteenth Annual Workshop on HCI Research in MIS, held in Auckland New Zealand on December 14, 2014. The workshop attracted 34 submissions, which included 14 completed research papers, 16 research-in-progress papers, 2 posters, and 2 PhD student roundtables. After a rigorous review process, 14 research papers were accepted for presentation at the workshop, a 42% acceptance rate. The workshop also included 6 poster presentations. In addition, the workshop featured a panel discussion on HCI & Mobile Computing Research Opportunities in Asia Pacific led by Zhenhui “Jack” Jiang. We were excited to offer PhD round table discussions for the second consecutive year, where senior faculty provided feedback to doctoral students conducting HCI research in MIS.

The program committee and a reviewers made outstanding contributions to the success of the workshop by providing high quality and timely feedback on the submissions. As in previous SIGHCI workshops, the best paper award winner was determined through a rigorous review process. Of the 14 accepted submissions, two papers were selected as best paper candidates based on overall review scores, best paper nominations, and input from each of the Program Co-Chairs. Out of these two papers, one was selected as the best paper, based on another set of independent rankings by best reviewer candidates.

A special thank you goes to Anna McNab, the Secretary and Treasurer of SIGHCI. She efficiently managed the entire workshop onsite, successfully hosted the SIGHCI business meeting, and provided very valuable feedback to the workshop co-chairs. We truly appreciate her dedication to the workshop and her enthusiasm!

We would also like to thank the two PhD student volunteers, Bart Knijnenburg and Samira Farivar. Especially, Bart did an amazing job helping out, taking pictures, and having a tremendous positive impact on the entire day.
