MINITRACK: NETWORK ANALYSIS OF DIGITAL AND SOCIAL 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, organizational, etc.) 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*

The Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences (HICSS) has been
known worldwide as one of the longest-standing scientific conferences. It
provides a highly interactive working environment for top scholars from
academia and the industry from over 40 countries to exchange ideas in
various areas of information, computer, and system sciences.



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 revised and extended
papers that are published in journals, books, and special issues as well as
additional research.

•       A full day of Symposia, Workshops, and Tutorials.

•       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[1], ranked third in value to the MIS
field among 13 Management Information Systems (MIS) conferences[2], and
