MINITRACK: NETWORK ANALYSIS OF SOCIAL AND DIGITAL MEDIA

Network science focuses on the structure of systems and how the components
of a system come together, expressed as patterns or regularities in
relationships among interacting units. Network analysis reveals the
underlying structure and the dynamic interactions among system components.
Network science and the development of digital and social media have
co-evolved as catalysts of each other’s advancement, and the increased use
of social and digital media provides scientists with a wealth of precise
and novel data. We welcome submissions that represent insightful ways that
network analysis can be used to better understand social and digital media.
Both methodologically and theoretically driven papers are encouraged, as
well as empirical research (e.g. telecommunication, health, website
specific, international) that push the boundaries of network science as
applied to social and digital media. Forward-thinking and boundary-spanning
forms of research including, but not limited to, the study of multi-level,
localized and ego-centric networks are particularly welcome.

ABOUT HICSS

Now in its 48th 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.
