HICSS, the longest standing scientific conference in the information systems and technology field, has opened their call for participation for HICSS-53, which will take place January 7-10, 2020.
Since 1968, HICSS has attracted high caliber scholars and professionals in academia, industry and government agencies around the world to present their cutting-edge research. During the past five decades, research papers presented at HICSS have promoted innovations and advanced the development in the information systems and technology at the global scale.
Dr. Cogburn will also be hosting a tutorial at HICSS-53 titled “Opportunities and Challenges in Text Analytics.” This is the fifth year IDPP has offered this text mining tutorial as a compliment to the text mining mini-track. More details to be announced soon.
Calls for papers are now available for three mini-tracks that will be co-chaired by IDPP’s Executive and Deputy Directors, Dr. Derrick Cogburn and Dr. Filippo Trevisan. Submissions begin on April 15, 2019.

Distributed Collaboration in Organizations and Networks Mini-Track
Co-chairs: Derrick Cogburn, J. Alberto Espinosa (AU-Kogod), and Alecia Santuzzi (Northern Illinois University).
This mini-track invites papers that offer direct and indirect insights into the successful operation of virtual teams, organizations and networks, including research in the vein of computer supported collaborative work (CSCW), computer supported collaborative learning (CSCW), and social and organizational networks.
Text Analytics Mini-Track
Co-chairs: Derrick Cogburn, Micheal Hine (Carleton University), Normand Peladeau (Provalis Research), Victoria Yoon (Virginia Commonwealth University)
Summary of call-for papers: http://hicss.hawaii.edu/tracks-53/collaboration-systems-and-technologies/#text-analytics-minitrack
This mini-track is designed to provide an interactive forum by bringing together researchers to discuss the critical issues of text mining.
