Track: Knowledge Systems
Minitrack: Integrating Knowledge and Learning Processes

This minitrack discusses knowledge management (KM) from an integrated perspective, i.e., the integration of knowledge management, learning, and business processes. It mainly focuses on two issues: a) how can knowledge, learning and business processes be integrated, and b) how can the related systems be integrated to enable an efficient workflow. Currently, even less learning environments take the context and the environment into account. Using mobile and ubiquitous technologies can lead to a paradigm shift in the construction of such learning environments: from static to highly contextualized knowledge and learning experiences. Based on the integration of knowledge and learning systems into social networks and social media applications, formal and informal collaborative interactions will further enhance this effect. This minitrack focuses on the adoption and diffusion of corresponding approaches: How can knowledge, learning and business processes as well as the related systems be designed and interrelated for successful adoption and diffusion? This is the minitrack’s leading question.

Topics and research areas include, but are not limited to:
* Integrating knowledge, learning and business processes as well as respective systems
* Using social networks and social media applications for KM and e-learning integration
* Contextualization, e.g. location-based services, mobile solutions, internationalization
* Usage, adoption, and success of integrated KM and learning systems
* Determining and measuring Return on Education (RoE)
* Concepts for competence-based learning
* Approaches for self-directed learning
* Concepts for open educational resources (OER)
* Implementations and case studies of integrated KM and learning systems

The minitrack should lead to comprehensive insights into integrated knowledge and learning solutions, bringing together researchers and practitioners interested in combining findings from two different fields. The content ranges from scientific approaches via prototypical implementations up to field reports. We encourage contributions addressing technology-oriented as well as human-oriented approaches.

HICSS conferences are devoted to the most relevant advances in the information, computer, and system sciences, and encompass developments in both theory and practice. Accepted papers may be theoretical, conceptual, tutorial or descriptive in nature. Those selected for presentation will be included in the Conference Proceedings published by the IEEE Computer Society.

Important Deadlines for Authors:
* From now to June 1 [Optional]: Prepare Abstracts. Then, contact Minitrack Chairs for guidance and indication of appropriate content.
* June 15: Submit full manuscripts for review as instructed (http://www.hicss.hawaii.edu/hicss_46/HICSS46AuthorInstructions.htm). The review is double-blind; therefore, this initial submission must be without author names.
* Aug 15: Review System emails Acceptance Notices to authors. It is very important that at least one author of each accepted paper attend the conference. Therefore, all travel guarantees – including visa or your organization's fiscal funding procedures – should begin immediately. Make sure your server accepts the review system address https://precisionconference.com/~hicss.
* Sept 15: SUBMIT FINAL PAPER. Add author names to your paper, and submit your Final Paper for Publication to the site provided in your Acceptance Notice.
* Oct 1: Early Registration fee deadline. At least one author of each paper should register by this date in order secure publication in the Proceedings. Fees will increase on Oct 2 and Dec 2.
* Oct 15: Papers without at least one paid-in-full registered author may be deleted from the Proceedings and not scheduled for presentation; authors will be so notified by the Conference Office.

How to Submit a Paper:
Follow Author Instructions to be posted by February 1, 2012, on the conference web site (http://www.hicss.hawaii.edu/hicss_46/apahome46.htm).
* HICSS papers must contain original material. They may not have been previously published, nor currently submitted elsewhere. All submissions undergo a double-blind peer review process.
* Abstracts are optional, but strongly recommended. You may contact the Minitrack Chair(s) for guidance or verification of content.
* Submit a paper to only one Minitrack. If a paper is submitted to more than one minitrack, then either paper may be rejected by either minitrack without consultation with author or other chairs. If you are not sure of the appropriate Minitrack, submit an abstract to the Track Chair(s) – see names and contact information at http://www.hicss.hawaii.edu/hicss_46/46contact.htm for determination, and/or seek informal opinion(s) of Minitrack Chair(s) before submitting.
* Do not author or co-author more than 5 papers. This means that an individual may be listed as author or co-author on no more than 5 submitted papers. Track Chairs must approve any names added after submission or acceptance on August 15.
