System science conference provides a forum for ideas
For more than thirty years the Hawaiian International Conference on System Sciences (HICSS) has brought together highly qualified, interdisciplinary professionals in an interactive environment to address issues in the areas of computer science, computer engineering, and information systems. The HICSS conference is one of the oldest in the field of system sciences and, according to MIS Quarterly, one of the two most influential.
In January 2002 more than 600 information systems and technology researchers and practitioners from the United States and 30 other countries attended the 35th annual conference to present and share research papers, theoretical and empirical work, and advanced case studies with their colleagues.
The Center for Technology in Government played an important role in the event by co-chairing three minitracks: E-Policy, E-Government, and Modeling Nonlinear Natural and Human Systems. CTG developed and chaired the conference minitracks in collaboration with colleagues from the Swiss Federal Institute of Intellectual Property and the University of Applied Sciences in Switzerland.
The minitracks were very successful, attracting 46 proposals, 18 selected papers, and 26 attendees at the sessions. As a result, CTG will continue and expand its HICSS involvement in January 2003 by co-chairing and facilitating five minitracks of research paper sessions including:
IT-enabled Management of Government (E-government Management)
Policy for IT-enabled Public Administration (E-policy)
IT-enabled Democracy (E-democracy)
IT-enabled Government Services (E-services)
Modeling Nonlinear Natural and Human Systems
