Now in its 45th 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.

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 ranked second in conference rating among 11 IS conferences[3].

The Australian Government's Excellence in Research project (ERA) has given HICSS an "A" rating, one of 32 Information Systems conferences so honored out of 241 (46-B and 146-C ratings).
