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 sixteenth annual pre-ICIS HCI/MIS research workshop prior to ICIS 2017 in Seoul, Korea on Sunday, December 10, 2017.


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.


We have significantly reduced the workshop registration fees to encourage more participation. The registration options are:
