Honolulu HI, Jan 3-6, 2024

Dear colleagues,

You are cordially invited to submit research papers to the LOCATION INTELLIGENCE TRACK at the Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences (HICSS-57, January 3-6, 2024, Honolulu, Hawaii). 

HICSS is known worldwide as one of the longest-standing working scientific conferences in Information Technology Management. HICSS provides a highly interactive working environment for top scholars from academia and industry from over 60 countries to exchange ideas in various areas of information, computer, and system sciences. Papers published in HICSS proceedings have been cited extensively for many years, across a spectrum of disciplines.

Location Analytics has emerged as an important set of concepts, tools and techniques with increasingly critical applications in the private, public and non-profit sectors. The entire geospatial industry has grown to be a worldwide market of $430 billion (MarketsandMarkets, 2021), fueled by advances in GIS spatial technology and a growing demand by organizations for use of location analytics across a spectrum of industries. The global location analytics market is projected to grow from USD 18 billion to USD 33.2 billion during 2022-2027 (MarketsandMarkets, 2022) fueled by the rising adoption of IoT and increasing demand for geospatial software services in various sectors and industries.
