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 2015 in Fort Worth, Texas, USA on Sunday, December 13, 2015.


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 be considered for a 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.


Following the workshop a business meeting will be conducted, and all those interested in the SIGHCI are invited to attend.


The best completed research papers from the workshop will be fast-tracked for publication consideration in the Journal of AIS Transaction on Human Computer Interaction (THCI).


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.
