Dear colleagues: HICSS has several mini-tracks of interest to AoIR; here 
is a reminder of ours. Deadline is not under our control.
Social Media and Communities -- a "mini-track" at the
Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences, (HICSS-51)
January 3-6, 2018, Hilton Waikoloa Village, Hawaii
Full paper submission deadline, June 15

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. 
‘Communities’ is taken in a broad sense, including communities of 
practice, epistemic communities, or communities of inquiry, as well as 
fully virtual communities, and social media use that supports or 
complements geographically based community. 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 
* 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.

We encourage the submission of exploratory and theoretical papers, as 
well as empirical studies.

HICSS 51 and the "Big Island"

The Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences, in its 51st 
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 

With five of the world's seven climate zones, and a mixture of Hawaiian 
and immigrant cultures, the "Big Island" of Hawaii offers diverse 
outdoor activities, good food, and cultural activities.
