                                CALL FOR PARTICIPATION 
 
      Pre-ICIS (International Conference on Information Systems)

                         The Second Annual Workshop on 
Human-Computer Interaction Research in Management Information Systems 
                                        (HCI/MIS'03) 
                      http://melody.syr.edu/hci/pre_icis03_wksp

                                        Organized by 
         Association for Information Systems Special Interest Group on HCI
                                http://melody.syr.edu/hci/

                   December 12-13, 2003, Seattle, Washington 
 

The workshop will provide an open and constructive discussion forum 
of important HCI research in Information Systems. It will address the ways 
humans interact with information, technologies, and tasks -- especially in 
the business, managerial, organizational, social and cultural contexts by 
drawing upon theories and methodologies from all relevant reference 
disciplines.

The organizing committee is putting together an interesting and exciting 
workshop, and we would like to welcome participation from anyone who 
is interested. This year's workshop will feature two panels, 17 peer-
reviewed research presentations, one reception, a best paper award, 
and a best reviewer award.

PANEL 1: BRIDGING THE GAP BETWEEN PRACTITIONERS AND 
ACADEMIA INTERESTS IN HCI RESEARCH

This year's workshop will try to bridge the gaps between academic 
research and industry interests by providing a panel to discuss pressing 
topics and issues in HCI research that are relevant to practice but also 
meet academic standards. The discussion will bring practitioners and 
academia views on what HCI research should be and how to possibly 
collaborate between the practitioners and academia.

Panelists:
* Mary Czerwinski, Microsoft Research (moderator)
* Julie Ratner, Iterative Design Inc.
* Izak Benbasat, University of British Columbia
* Radhika Santhanam, University of Kentucky
* Peter Todd, University of Virginia

PANEL 2: COMMON GROUND OF HCI RESEARCH - 
MULTI-DISCIPLINARY PERSPECTIVES

This panel will explore some general questions regarding the common 
ground of HCI issues, and will represent each panelist's fields (Psychology, 
Computer Science, Information Studies, Information Systems, Computer-
Human Interaction, and Management Information Systems) in a rare 
opportunity for such interaction. For example, what is unique or common 
about each source of knowledge? Are there overlaps? Are they 
synergistic and beneficial or redundant and contradictory?  

Panelists: 
* Dennis Galletta, University of Pittsburgh (moderator)
* Judy Olson, University of Michigan
* Marilyn Tremaine, NJIT
* Dov Teeni, Tel-Avi University
* Jane Webster, Queen's University
* Jonathan Lazar, Towson University
