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 otherís 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 welcome.
List of topics, as related to Digital and/or Social Media:
Theories of Social Networks
Models of Social Networks
Longitudinal Network Analysis
Visualization of Social Networks
Two-mode / Affiliation / Bi-partite Networks
Determining Network Structure and Processes
Self-organizing and Decentralized Networks
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 , 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 ; references can be found at http://hicss.hawaii.edu/about/.
Unique characteristics of the conference include:
