We would like to invite mini-track proposals for the Virtual Communities 
and Collaboration track for AMCIS 2016.

Important Dates:
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!

Best wishes,

Track Co-Chairs:
Shu Schiller, shu.schiller at wright.edu
Brian Mennecke, mennecke at iastate.edu
Fiona Fui-Hoon Nah, nahf at mst.edu
