Track Description

The medium of collaboration is changing as groups and individuals rely on information communication technologies (ICT). The world became flat with high-speed communication and ICT (Friedman 2006). Early adopters quickly took advantage of these technologies, from web conferences to virtual workspaces. These virtual tools have not fully replaced conventional collaboration, but they have had significant impact on the way we connect, communicate, coordinate, cooperate, and collaborate. Initially ICT tools were standalone software and hardware (such as a PC with a video conferencing application) but today they moved to the cloud within the ecosystem of internet of things such as Google+ Hangouts. This track solicits research studies that explore current and emerging collaborative information technology research. Research focusing on the ways in which these technologies have changed the nature of work and social interaction are particularly welcome.
