CALL FOR PAPERS: MINITRACK ON GLOBAL VIRTUAL COLLABORATION

A theme of the COLLABORATION SYSTEMS AND TECHNOLOGY TRACK at the

36TH HAWAI'I INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON SYSTEM SCIENCES

JANAURY 6-9, 2003

Full Conference Details at: http://www.hicss.hawaii.edu

A web version of this call for papers is available from:
http://www.is.cityu.edu.hk/research/resources/rd/rd-hicss03a.htm

In the last few years, we have seen an increasingly important role played by
global virtual collaborative teams working in a variety of contexts, ranging
from organisational communication and decision making, through distributed
software development, to virtual education initiatives. These virtual teams
seek support in bridging time and space through various forms of
collaborative technology such as group support systems, shared calendaring
applications, document management systems, video and audio conferencing, and
the like.

While much of this technology has been developed within the cultural milieu
of North America, and to a lesser extent Western Europe and Australasia, the
application domain is geographically and culturally much broader. Thus, not
only do we see virtual teams within a single country, but also virtual teams
with members from many different countries. Their technology support, which
spans both time zones and cultures, involves considerable adaptation,
interpretation and structuration of the technology to fit local norms and
behaviours. In the future, it is likely that these virtual teams and their
distributed applications of the technology will become increasingly
prevalent as the globalisation of work intensifies and receives increased
attention.

In this minitrack, we hope to present a wide-ranging set of contributions to
this emerging field, focusing in particular on the practical lessons (for
practitioners and researchers) that are emerging through the global
applications of the collaborative technologies being used as well as the
working practices and insights from (real) global virtual teams. We are
particularly interested in encouraging the submission of articles that
employ field research methods (whether in the public or private sector, in
profit-making or non-profit organisations, in academe, business or
charitable organisations). Articles that challenge the status quo in current
research and practice will be well received. With respect to epistemology,
articles that espouse positivist, interpretivist or critical theory
perspectives will be equally acceptable.

Topics of relevance to this minitrack include, but are not limited to:
       Global aspects of virtual work
       Cross-cultural collaborative applications
       Organisational and inter-organisational case studies
       Theoretical frameworks
       Virtual team contexts
       Group authoring initiatives
       Video conferencing
       Synchronous & Asynchronous collaboration
       Multilingual systems that facilitate collaborative work
       Distributed software development
       Distributed education environments
       Distributed project management
       Conflict and culture
       Managing globally distributed knowledge

Deadlines

March 31, 2002: 300-word abstract (optional) submitted to track chairs or
minitrack chairs for guidance and indication of appropriate content. Lack of
a pre-approved abstract does not preclude submitting a paper, but is
recommended if author(s) are in doubt as to appropriate content. This is a
recommended deadline, but we will accept abstracts after that date.

June 1, 2002 (mandatory): Full papers submitted to the co-ordinating
minitrack chair. We prefer that papers be submitted electronically - either
in Word or PDF format. If you cannot submit electronically, you must send
six copies of the paper to the co-ordinating minitrack chair. Detailed
instructions on submission are available at the HICSS-36 Web page:
http://www.hicss.hawaii.edu

Aug. 31, 2002 Minitrack chair sends notice of accepted papers to authors.

Oct. 1, 2002 Authors submit final version of accepted papers electronically
for publication. At least one author of each paper must have registered for
the conference by this date.

Instructions for Paper Submission

1. We prefer electronic submissions - as an attached file in MS Word or PDF
format. Otherwise, submit six (6) copies of the full paper, consisting of
22-26 double- spaced pages, including diagrams, directly to the appropriate
Minitrack Chair.

(NOTE: The final paper will be 10 pages, double-column, single spaced.)

2. Do not submit the manuscript to more than one Minitrack Chair. Papers
should contain original material and not be previously published, or
currently submitted for consideration elsewhere.

3. Each paper must have a title page to include title of the paper, full
name of all authors, and complete addresses including affiliation(s),
telephone number(s), and e-mail address(es).

4. The first page of the manuscript should include only the title and a
300-word abstract of the paper.

HICSS conferences are devoted to advances in the information, computer, and
system sciences, and encompass developments in both theory and practice.
Invited papers may be theoretical, conceptual, tutorial or descriptive in
nature. Submissions undergo a peer referee process and those selected for
presentation will be published in the Conference Proceedings. Submissions
must not have been previously published.
