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 a 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. MINITRACK ORGANIZERS George A.

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. HICSS is the #1 IS conference in terms of citations as recorded by Google Scholar. Recent research that shows HICSS ranked second in citation ranking among 18 Information Systems (IS) conferences, ranked third in value to the MIS field among 13 Management Information Systems (MIS) conferences, and ranked second in conference rating among 11 IS conferences.
