Proceedings of the 41st Annual Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences (HICSS 2008) (2008)
Waikoloa, Big Island, Hawaii
Jan. 7, 2008 to Jan. 10, 2008
This Track was officially introduced in HICSS-31 (1998). Over the years the topics have evolved to reflect the continuing changes in eCommerce, mCommerce and the Web in general. Some of the original topics are still with us in HICSS-41 (e.g. Electronic Marketing). Other topics, such as Internet Security appeared around HICSS-35 (2002) and likewise continue today. The major change this year is move toward mini-tracks focused on what has been labeled Web 2.0. Among other things, Web 2.0 is characterized by its emphasis on social relationships and the relationship-based economy. Of the 13 minitracks, five--Community Wireless Networks, Interactive Digital Entertainment, Open Movements, Value Webs, and Virtual Communities--either concentrate or touch on issues pertinent to Web 2.0.
