The Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences
An experienced business professional who holds both an MBA and a PhD in IT management from the Georgia Institute of Technology, Antoine Chaya has served as senior director of strategic accounts at the Oracle Corporation since 2006. Over the course of his career, he has contributed to numerous professional associations and gatherings. Antoine Chaya delivered a presentation on the relationships between IT investments and organizational performance at the 29th Annual Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences in Maui, Hawaii.
One of the longest-standing scientific conferences in the world, the Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences (HICSS) attracts IT and computer business leaders and scholars from more than 40 countries. As recorded by Google Scholar, it is currently the top information systems conference in terms of citations.
In 2009, the Australian Research Council reported that the HICSS received a perfect "A" rating from the Australian Government's Excellence in Research project (ERA). The ERA bestowed this honor on only 32 information systems conferences out of 241.
Featuring a “rich mixture of computer-based applications and technologies,” the HICSS presents a large number of research paper presentations and discussions over a period of three days. It also supports a full day of workshops, symposia, and tutorials.
