              CFP: HICSS Social Networking and Communities

    52nd Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences (HICSS)
            January 8-11, 2019, Grand Wailea, Maui, Hawaii
       PAPERS DUE: June 15, 2018 via the HICSS conference system

This HICSS minitrack has been ongoing since 2003. The focus is
primarily on social media and other social technologies and their
interrelations with networks and communities (online and offline). We
call for papers that address social networks and communities supported
and/or complemented by social media for work, learning, socializing,
economic and/or political processes, and/or that address theory,
design, practices, use or evaluation of such social media use. This
year we are adding an interest in viral phenomena within social

In order to leverage an interdisciplinary perspective and enable dialogue
between social and technological disciplines, papers may be motivated by a
broad range of theory-driven or data-driven perspectives and methods,
including for example but not limited to social network analysis, content
analysis, ethnographic investigations, and agent-based simulations. We
particularly encourage papers that:
* advance our understanding of social network growth, formation,
   structure and outcomes through social media;
* explore how socio-technical affordances relate to social media use
   and outcomes;
* examine how information and misinformation spread in social media
   and networks, and how algorithms, bots, and social media design
   affect this spread;
* evaluate design of social media technologies and practices for
   effective community development and maintenance; and
* develop theories, models and principles of social media design, use
   and outcomes for networks and communities.
We are particularly interested in papers that explore new models,
theories and methods rather than re-applying and repeating established

The Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences, in its 52nd
year, is one of the longstanding scientific conferences and is highly
ranked among information systems conferences. Diverse disciplines
unified by a focus on information technologies are woven together in a
matrix structure of tracks and themes. By attending HICSS you are not
only reaching the audience of your track and mini-track; you also have
the opportunity to learn about what is happening in related fields and
meet leaders in those fields. Other mini-tracks within the Digital and
Social Media track are particularly relevant: see
