About Global Virtual Teams
Today, many business processes, as well as government and scientific projects, are executed by geographically-dispersed virtual teams. Team members often do not have the same first language, come from different national cultures, work in different time zones, and may be employed in different organizations. These differences, among others, present unique opportunities for management and leadership. This mini-track invites papers that offer insights into the successful operation of global virtual teams. Session topics include, but are not limited to:
The mini-track has been widely attended and has enjoyed tremendous success in the past. More information on the conference can be found on the HICSS 47 homepage and detailed instructions for interested candidates can be found on the Call for Papers instructions page.
Due date for submission of full papers: June 15, 2013
Both academics and practitioners are encouraged to submit a paper.
