Call for Papers at HICSS 2019 Minitrack on "Intentional Forgetting in 
Organizations and Information Systems" (
The annual Hawaii International Conference on System Science (HICSS) will 
be held January 8th - 11th at Grand Wailea, Maui. We would like to invite 
interested researchers to submit their papers to our MiniTrack on 
"Intentional Forgetting in Organizations and Information Systems".
*** Description ***
Knowledge creation and organizational learning relies on the cognitive 
capacity of an organization, its members and its information systems. 
Processing new signals from the environment and generating new meaningful 
information is one key factor for successful management. However, with the 
increasing amount of information within and outside the organization, this 
process can slow down or lead to contradicting results. Organizational 
learning is distorted. Forgetting unused, obsolete and contradicting 
information is therefore the key of an efficient learning process as it 
frees up this capacity.
This minitrack addresses the forgetting paradigm in organizations and 
information systems. It welcomes contributions from both a technical as 
well as an organization science background. It especially welcomes 
interdisciplinary contributions connecting multiple research streams. This 
minitrack shall stimulate the discussion in how far and by which means 
organizations and software systems can and should forget. It addresses a 
range of topics including, but not limited to:
- Computer aided forgetting (i.e. information selection and extinction)
- Modelling forgetting in knowledge intensive processes
- Automated forgetting in information systems (i.e. in ontology based 
knowledge bases)
- Reorganizing organizations through intentional forgetting (i.e. 
restricting fallback to old routines)
- Learning and forgetting environments (i.e. design of distraction-free 
physical and virtual learning spaces)
