Hello, friends.

The deadline for submissions to HICSS has been extended to July 15. The
conference is still "on" for January, assuming that travel is possible at
the start of the year. In any case, proceedings from HICSS are very highly
cited. While we are certainly in a period of flux, I hope you will consider
submitting and (hopefully) coming together in the new year.

In particular, we hope you will consider submitting to our mini-track for
Digital Methods:

There has been an explosion of research using social media data to study
human behavior and social interaction in almost every domain of social
science. While the body of literature using digital and social media data
is growing at a staggering rate, accompanying methodological contributions
about the process of conducting research with digital and social media data
remains thin. The existing methodological literature is typically tool or
technology driven, and not a result of empirical examination of the data
collection process.This leaves researchers without an understanding of how
to approach or evaluate the social media data collection process, and in
turn, how to appropriately interpret findings from this type of research.
As a result, researchers, practitioners, and students are left to
continually reinvent the wheel by learning through a process of trial and

This minitrack addresses this gap by providing a venue to discuss
methodological issues and approaches to conducting research with digital
and social media data. We welcome papers related to methodological
challenges for researchers including, but not limited to: (1) the need for
new methods for data collection and analysis, (2) adaptations of existing
methods (3) issues of representation and sampling, (4) ephemerality of
social media data, (5) holistic collection of digital social media data and
associated content such as images/URLs/video, (6) preservation, archiving,
and data sharing, and (7) impact of changing platform affordances,
interfaces, designs, and APIs.
