HCI is an interdisciplinary area devoted to the study of interaction between people and computers. It covers a range of disciplines from computer science, human factors and ergonomics to social and behavioral sciences and design disciplines. The HCI field essentially deals with the design, evaluation and use of interactive systems, with a common focus on user performance and experience. It has been argued that the field of HCI has legitimized its existence through emphasizing the need to ‘represent the users’. HCI research in the MIS area emphasizes the interaction between humans, information, technologies, and tasks, especially in business, managerial, organizational, and cultural contexts. 
The aim of this track is to provide a forum for AIS members to acknowledge each other's work, and to discuss, develop, and promote a range of issues related to the history, reference disciplines, theories, practice, methods and techniques associated with the interaction between humans, information and technology. The track is open to all types of research approaches (e.g., conceptualization, theorization, case study, action research, grounded theory, experimentation, survey, simulation and interpretive studies) to study or examine HCI-related problems and issues. 

Both full research papers and research-in-progress papers are welcome.
