    1. 1. © 2016 International Business Machines Corporation Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences HICSS-50: January 4-7, 2017 | Hilton Waikoloa Village Cognitive and systems services speaking opportunities Haluk Demirkan, University of Washington Sergey Belov, IBM University Relations CEEMEA
    2. 2. © 2016 International Business Machines Corporation 2 Why HICSS • One of the longest-standing continuously running scientific conferences http://www.hicss.org/ • It brings together about1000 researchers from over 40 countries • Approximately 50% participants are non-US. • Papers published in the Proceedings by the IEEE Computer Society Press and carried in the IEEE digital library Xplore (with open access) • Access to HICSS papers is in the top 2% of IEEE Conferences. • HICSS is the #1 IS conference in terms of citations as recorded by Google Scholar. • Recent research that shows HICSS ranked 2nd in citation ranking among 18 Information Systems (IS) conferences, ranked 3rd in value to the MIS field among 13 Management Information Systems (MIS) conferences, and ranked 2nd in conference rating among 11 IS conferences • The Australian Government's Excellence in Research project has given HICSS an "A" rating, one of 32 Information Systems conferences so honored out of 241. • HICSS is a “working” conference where people prefer discussing ideas rather than informing colleagues about final results • Emerging topics - rich agenda with multiple tracks, minitracks, workshops, tutorials, keynotes Reference: http://www.hicss.org/#!aboutus/cxvx
    3. 3. © 2016 International Business Machines Corporation 3 Cognitive Agenda at HICSS • 2nd Full-Day Tutorial on Cognitive Computing and Cognitive Assistants for Research & Teaching • Minitrack on Smart Service Systems: Analytics, Cognition and Innovation http://www.hicss.org/#!smart-service-systems/c1mcg • Minitrack on Business Intelligence, Analytics and Cognitive: Case Studies and Applications (COGS) http://www.hicss.org/#!bi-analytics-and-cognitive/cosc • Workshop on IBM Cognitive Programs for educations and research (TBC)
    4. 4. © 2016 International Business Machines Corporation 4 A tutorial on Cognitive Computing and Cognitive Assistants for Research and Teaching Cognitive Assistants have become essential. No human can absorb the amount of data available for their profession nor can they enhance outcomes without leveraging latest information. With assistance from cognitive systems, humans can make better, faster and more accurate decisions. This tutorial will explore how cognitive assistants are improving the outcomes of doctors, lawyers, teachers and other professionals. Cognitive assistants for every profession will enhance human productivity, accuracy, and confidence and will allow humans to greatly expand their expertise.
    5. 5. © 2016 International Business Machines Corporation 5 A minitrack on Smart Service Systems: Analytic, Cognition and Innovation Smart service systems can be characterized by: the types of offerings to their customers and/or citizens, the types of jobs or roles for people within them, and the types of returns they offer investors interested in growth and development. An important trend in smart service systems is the increasing availability of cognitive assistants (e.g., Siri, Watson, Jibo, Echo, Cortana) to boost productivity and creativity. There is a need to apply robust research findings in the appropriate management and organizational contexts related to innovation of smart service systems, quality, architecture, design and delivery, and the resulting customer satisfaction and business value. The goal of this track is to explore the challenges, issues and opportunities related to innovation of smart service systems that enable value co-creation with analytics, cognitive and human systems. We are interested in novel theories, approaches and applications for innovation of smart service systems.
    6. 6. © 2016 International Business Machines Corporation 6 A minitrack Business Intelligence, Analytics and Cognitive: Case Studies and Applications (COGS) The purpose of this minitrack is to invite case studies of both successful and unsuccessful, but informative, applications of business intelligence, data analytics, cognitive systems, & data, analytics & cognitive-enabled smart services across industries and societies. Business intelligence and data analytics have continued to make substantial inroads in the operational, managerial and strategic corporate decision-making processes. Recently, the emergence of cognitive computing systems that augment the creativity and productivity of people, and which are trained using artificial intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict, infer and, up to some extent augment cognitive capabilities, has also extended the range of business intelligence and data analytics solutions on the market. We are looking for reports that improve our understanding of how BI, Analytics, Cognitive technologies and Smart Services are currently used across industries and societies. .
