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*

Since 1968, the Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences (HICSS)
has been known worldwide as the longest-standing working scientific
conferences in Information Technology Management. HICSS provides a highly
interactive working environment for top scholars from academia and the
industry from over 60 countries to exchange ideas in various areas of
information, computer, and system sciences. Recent research 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 ranked second in conference
rating among 11 IS conferences [3]; references can be found at https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__hicss&d=DwIFaQ&c=pZJPUDQ3SB9JplYbifm4nt2lEVG5pWx2KikqINpWlZM&r=uXI5O6HThk1ULkPyaT6h2Ws3RKNKSY__GQ4DuS9UHhs&m=cHcTPv14uJgL0CsKVVMi5YGSaxM6PIcOfRBhDtrPE84&s=DYjCiyznwhBeJIttMpLBZ1RoNN8nA9HxsgAMMZuit38&e=

Unique characteristics of the conference include:

   - A matrix structure of tracks and themes that enables research on a
   rich mixture of cutting-edge 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.
   - Keynote addresses and distinguished lectures 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.
   - A doctoral consortium that helps participants work with senior
   scholars on their work-in-progress leading to journal publications.
   - HICSS panels that help shape future research directions
