Call for Papers: 53rd Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences, Maui, HI

This is the second call for papers for the minitrack Health Information Behavior and Activity Tracking Technology at the 53rd Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences January 7-10, 2020, Grand Wailea, Maui, Hawaii, USA.

Various consumer-facing wearable activity trackers provide a range of health-related functionalities, starting with counting steps, tracking sleep, monitoring heart rates and ending with evaluating exercise performance or providing personalized insights through data analytics. The increasingly ubiquitous activity tracking technology, including activity trackers and related health applications, enables users to quantify and monitor their daily physical activities as part of their overall health, anytime and anywhere.

Submissions to this minitrack should address the research topic of health information behavior (e.g., autonomous using, reflecting, integrating, ignoring, and learning through provided health information) with regard to activity tracking technology. Potential topics under study include but are not limited to:

  • Quantitative and qualitative methods to measure and to understand activity tracker users' health information behavior

  • Cultural, generational, and gender differences in using activity trackers

  • Personal information management of activity tracker users

  • Privacy implications and privacy-enhancing design of activity tracking technology

  • Health literacy of activity tracker users



Import Deadlines:


  • Paper Submission Deadline: June 15, 2019 (11:59 PM; HST)
