MINITRACK: NETWORK ANALYSIS OF SOCIAL AND DIGITAL MEDIA

Network sciences focus on the structure of systems and how the elements of
a system come together, often expressed as patterns or regularities in
relationships among interacting units. Network analysis can reveal the
underlying structures and help to discover the dynamic interactions among
network components. The science of network analysis and the development of
digital and social media have co-evolved as catalysts of each other’s
development and advancement, and the increased use of social and digital
media provides network scientists with wealth of precise and novel data. We
welcome submissions that represent the insightful ways that network
analysis can be used to better understand social and digital media. Both
methodologically and theoretically driven papers are encouraged to submit,
as well as lines of research that are pushing the boundaries of network
science as applied to social and digital media. Forward-thinking and
boundary-spanning forms of research are particularly welcome.

ABOUT HICSS



Now in its 47th year, the Hawaii International Conference on System
Sciences (HICSS) is one of the longest-standing continuously running
scientific conferences. This conference brings together researchers in an
aloha-friendly atmosphere conducive to free exchange of scientific ideas.
Unique characteristics of the conference include:



·      A matrix structure of tracks and themes that enables research on a
rich mixture of computer-based applications and technologies.

·      Three days of research paper presentations and discussions in a
workshop setting that promotes interaction leading to additional research.

·      A full day of Symposia, Workshops, and Tutorials. See Program
Components for additional detail.

·      A truly international experience with participants usually from over
40 countries, (approximately 50% non-US).

·      Papers published in the Proceedings by the IEEE Computer Society
Press and carried in the IEEE digital library Xplore. Access to HICSS
papers is in the top 2% of IEEE Conferences.

·      Paper presentations and discussions which frequently lead to revised
and extended papers that are published in journals, books, and special
issues.

·      A keynote address and distinguished lecture which explore
particularly relevant topics and concepts.

·      Best Paper Awards in each track which recognize superior research
performance.
