The Hawai'I International Conference on System Sciences (  is seeking high quality papers on several topics.  A topic of particular relevance for this mailing list is the following CFP:   

Media Literacy: Reading and Writing Digital Forms 

This minitrack at HICSS addresses issues regarding the design, creation and use of media in many settings - the office and classroom, at home, and informally in nearly any setting. 

Specific topics include but are not restricted to: 

        * Media literacy - writing in the large; reading across genres 

        * Changes in notions of literacy based on computational media 
                (e.g., how search engines change the way people do research 
                and reading)   

        * Content analysis, video and document summarization 

        * Content authoring (especially as it changes ease-of-use) 

        * Multimedia document browsing 

        * User interfaces for new media types, content-based retrieval 

        * Real-time video as a media type 

        * Audio analysis, extensions, applications 

        * User studies on media use and design for specific populations 

        * Use of multimedia documents over a variety of displays 
           (from PDAs to broadband workstations) 

        * Computer-based games as a new type of media, particularly in learning situations 

In other words, how does media literacy-in all its forms and manifestations-make a difference in the way people read and write in the new media?  Studies, experiments, system designs and observational studies are all encouraged.   

Please send your questions and potential papers to:
