CFP - HICSS genre minitrack--paper due date 15 June 2006

Call for papers--HICSS Minitrack on Genres of Digital Documents

Genres are communicative actions with a socially recognized communicative purpose and/or common aspects of form (such as newsletters, FAQs, and homepages). Genres are situated in complex communicative practices; they are anchored in specific institutions and processes and can be equally applicable to physical as well as electronic documents. For successful organizational and societal implementations of digital media, understanding of the interplay and co-evolution between social and organizational purposes of communication
and affordances of new media plays a crucial role. In a digital information environment, documents have functionality as well as form and content, but in many ways the contextual clues are missing. For this reason, the genre lens provides certain fixity in communication and becomes increasingly important in providing users a resource for the interpretation of the content, role, and function of digital documents.

Genre theory has inspired analysis and design of a number of types of information systems and solutions such as e-learning, document/content management systems, electronic meeting systems, newspaper services, and mobile media services. The genre lens has even been suggested as a basis for critical debate and validation of new document and communication

Topics of the minitrack will address the social and organizational aspects of genre and their interplay with genre forms as manifested in digital media. These include (but are not limited to):

*  Issues related to transformation of genres from a medium to another
*  The evolution of genres of digital documents
*  Understanding of change and socio-organizational enactment processes of genres, genre systems, and genre repertoires
*  Investigations of genre in use
*  Analyses of genres emerging in novel digital media, e.g. the Web, mobile communication technologies, e-mail, instant messaging, multi-media communication environments
*  Genres in non-text and multi-media digital documents
*  Role of genre in development and design of information systems, knowledge management, and information management in the organizational and societal context
*  Theoretical and methodological elaborations of genre theory for enhancing research and/or practice of utilizing digital media in the societal and organizational context
*  Use of the genre theory as a research tool
*  Genre-based design of systems and use of the genre lens in systems development processes (e.g. planning, requirements analysis, benchmarking, etc.)
*  Role of genre awareness and recognition in information and IT usage

HICSS will be held 7-10 January 2008 at the Hilton Waikoloa Village Resort, Waikoloa, Big Island, Hawaii. HICSS Proceedings are published and distributed by the IEEE Computer Society and carried on the IEEE Digital Library.

The firm deadline to submit papers is 15 June 2007. Authors will receive decisions regarding paper acceptances by 15 August 2007.  We would be happy to provide guidance and indication of appropriate content, so please feel free to contact us with an abstract at any time. Papers should be submitted on the reviewing system following the instructions on the HICSS website.
