CFP: HICSS Minitrack--"Using Information: New Technologies, Ways & Means" --
Hawai'i, Big Island, Jan 2007

This is the last CFP for the "Using Information:  New technologies, Ways &
Means" minitrack at HICSS 2007.

The minitrack is a blend of new things coming out as a result of Web 2.0,
with a bit of search, a bit of social networks, mashups, new media types and
mixins of all information kinds.

How are people creating and using these new technologies?   How are they
adapting to the changes?

We've created a weblog for the minitrack to discuss some of these ideas, and
to kick around thoughts about possible papers for the minitrack:

The direct link to the HICSS submission page is:

NOTE:  Papers are due on June 15th, 2006.  THIS WEEK!

The conference is  January 3- 7, 2007 (on the Big Island of Hawai'i).

It would be great if you would participate of course – and in any case if
you could mention this minitrack to others, that would be  marvelous as

Using Information: New Technologies, Ways, & Means

Are blogs changing the world?  How does everpresent search change the
information discovery behavior of users?  Will millions of people adding
tags to content affect use patterns?  How do wikis, RSS feeds, ever-present
search, and constantly renewed online newspapers change information use and
creation?  How will they affect existing patterns of using information and
knowledge in homes and organizations?

There is now an efflorescence of new media, highly available content and
information—as well as new ways of finding, using and interacting with this
new information wealth.  This is true for our personal computers, within
organizations, and on the internet.

As these new forms grow and flourish, new methods for creating, sharing,
reading and writing are emerging as well.

Just as importantly, the content and technologies merge and blur into one
another, causing new kinds of media and uses to emerge from the
combinations.  How all these new opportunities arise, form and are used is
the topic of interest.

This minitrack at HICSS will focus on how new technologies for using this
information are being created and used.  In particular, we are interested in
work regarding the design, creation and use of information in many settings,
particularly in ways that are newly emerging and especially innovative.

We're seek high quality papers across a broad spectrum of topics in this
