HICSS 42: Minitrack on Open Movements: FLOSS, Open Contents and Open Communities

Felipe Ortega
Hi all.

I want to announce this minitrack, scheduled in the next HICSS 42 Conference.

This year, it focuses also on Open Communities, so it is specially suitable for Wikipedia and wiki related research papers from many different points of view (semantics, ontologies, social networks, quantitative analysis, etc.)

If you plan to submit, please note that it is recommendable that you send to Kevin or to me an abstract summarizing the contents before 1 June.

Full papers deadline: 15 june.
The conference will be held from 5-8 January, 2009.



Topics and research areas include, but are not limited to:

* Issues in distributed software development for FLOSS
* Issues in content development in OC and OComm
* Distributed collaboration in and coordination of FLOSS and OC development teams
* Distributed group development for FLOSS
* Community development and its evolution in OC
* FLOSS teams as communities of practice
* Leadership, management and policies in FLOSS, OC groups and Open Communities
