Papers from the 40th Annual Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences

The 40th Annual Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences (HICSS’07) was held on January 3-6, 2007, at the Hilton Waikoloa Village Resort, Waikoloa, Big Island, Hawaii.

It is a forum for an exchange of ideas in all areas of information sciences, and featured a very large number of presentations, and papers to accompany them. I’ve listed a few of those below that focus mostly upon online social networks and usability.

  1. Thanks, Jason.

    I’ve been keeping my eyes open for articles from Dan Russell. I like his practical approach to usabilty and analyzing data, and a paper that discusses the importance of task analysis outside the laboratory from someone from Google is great to see.

  2. Good find Bill. Especially interesting are the implications made by “Assigned tasks are not the same as self-chosen Web search tasks” in regards to searcher behavior studies.

  3. Thanks,

    I liked the article about Buying behavior by Theresa Lauraeus-Niinivaara. The statistical technique (pair t-test) was the best to analyse this type of data. Overall paper good. I reviewed it for my paper in qualitative research.
