This will be the 17th year in which HICSS has included a major focus on the topic of content and communication through Digital Media. This Track provides a unique forum for this interdisciplinary topic in bringing together research from computer science, information science, linguistics and information systems, as well as other disciplines.

The Digital Media: Content and Communication Track has, as its title implies, two main themes. The first theme, digital media content, focuses on the organization and retrieval of digital information. In particular, the organization and visualization of and retrieval from large scale digital repositories, including the Web, The second theme, communication through digital media, focuses on how digital media has changed how we communicate and how are we leveraging digital media to communicate, both in our personal lives and in the work place. In this Track we are looking for new and innovative approaches to these areas.

The Track is made up of six Minitracks and researchers are invited to submit electronic versions of their papers directly to the Chair(s) of the appropriate Minitrack(s).
