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:

 *   Temporal separation and its effects on collaboration
 *   Cultural differences in perception of time
 *   Conflict resolution across cultures
 *   Project management styles and differences across cultures
 *   Differences in language understanding and its effects on collaboration
 *   Power distance and its effects on collaboration
 *   Uncertainty (risk) avoidance and its effects on collaboration
 *   Collaboration and communication tools
 *   Differences between academic and non-academic virtual teams
 *   Global virtual team case studies
Both academics and practitioners are encouraged to submit a paper.
We look forward to your submissions and the continued success of the HICSS GVT mini-track.
