We would like to invite mini-track proposals for the Virtual Communities
and Collaboration track for AMCIS 2016.
Sept 22: Minitrack submissions open
Oct 19: Deadline for Minitrack submissions
Oct 28: Minitrack decisions are complete
Track: Virtual Communities and Collaboration
The goal of the Virtual Communities and Collaboration track is to
disseminate research and extend our knowledge and understanding of
virtual communities and collaborations, which play an increasingly
important role in the trend toward globalization. Virtual communities
are collective groups of individuals who utilize computer-mediated
environments to interact and pursue mutual goals. They can be found in
virtual worlds, social media and crowdsourcing sites, among others.
Research areas range from design issues in collaboration systems, sense
of community and engagement in virtual communities, to impact of virtual
collaborations and communities in domains as diverse as business,
education, and government. This track aims to extend our understanding
of virtual communities and collaborations to enhance the theoretical
foundation for research, share important empirical findings related to
these venues, and provide guidance to practitioners.
Minitrack chairs will be responsible for:
a) promoting the minitrack to generate manuscript submissions
b) soliciting and assigning reviewers
c) making recommendations to track chairs
We look forward to your minitrack proposals!
