Mini-track: Value Appropriation and Creation in Platform-Mediated Collaborative Environments



Dear Colleges,



We invite submissions to the “Value Appropriation and Creation in Platform-Mediated Collaborative Environments” mini-track under the “Virtual Communities and Collaboration”
track at the Americas Conference on Information Systems (AMCIS) 2019 to be held in Cancún, México, August 15-17, 2019.



<Mini-Track Description>



Virtual communities are reshaping the way we communicate and collaborate with one another, shifting us from spatial- and temporal-confined interactions towards fluid peer-to-peer marketplaces and other firm-market hybrids. The platform-mediated collaboration paradigm has sprung up to facilitate both individuals and/or organizations in pooling resources for the pursuit of mutual goals. For instance, we crowdfund innovation from Kickstarter, staff projects through Amazon’s Mechanical Turk, incubate products from open-source designs acquired through micro-manufacturers like FirstBuild, organize virtual meetings using WebEx, and work with team members via Asana. As virtual communities redefine the boundaries and structures of human collaborations, comprehending human behaviors in digital environments and deriving design considerations for digital services that optimize collaborative processes is imperative for realizing collaboration in the virtual space.



This mini-track embraces both retrospective and progressive views on behavioral and design issues related to virtual collaborative platforms. Particularly, we are interested in research that unravels the interplay of human behaviors and virtual collaborative platforms at the individual, group, organization, and societal levels as well as the intersection across levels. Contributions to this mini-track should expand our knowledge on how technologies govern and shape human behaviors in virtual communities as well as how such technology-mediated human behaviors, in turn, inform the design of virtual collaborative platforms. We welcome both theoretical and empirical contributions that explore how digital services can be designed to appropriate and create value in platform-mediated collaborative environments, especially those that subscribe to inter-disciplinary perspectives and/or adopt mixed methods.



Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

-  Influence of individual and collective behaviors on the design and usage of virtual collaborative platforms

-  Influence of virtual collaborative platforms on individual behaviors, group dynamics, as well as organizational norms and policies

-  Influence of political and socio-economic factors on human behaviors associated with virtual collaboration

-  Patterns of human/human-machine interactions and how digital services can be leveraged to support such interactions

-  Role of individual behaviors in shaping collective outcome on virtual collaborative platforms

-  Data-driven design of virtual collaborative platforms

-  Design of business processes and workflow in virtual collaborations

-  Design of communication interfaces and digital assistants on virtual collaborative platforms

-  Design of recommendation systems on virtual collaborative platforms

-  Design of reputation systems on virtual collaborative platforms

-  Design of assessment tools on collaborative outcome and individuals’ contributions on virtual collaborative platforms

-  Design modalities, principles, and processes for virtual collaborative platforms

-  Evaluation of system design for virtual collaborative platforms



Important Dates:

- January 7, 2019: Manuscript submissions for AMCIS 2019 begin.

- March 1, 2019: AMCIS manuscript submissions (Completed Research and Emergent Research Forum (ERF) papers) close for authors at 10:00 am PST.

- April 15, 2019: Track chairs recommendations are due.



We look forward to receiving your submissions. Please feel free to contact us with any question(s) about the mini-track.
