VOSS Workshop Scheduled for May in Cleveland

The first VOSS Workshop is scheduled for May 14-16, at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio.

A select group of managers from virtual organizations and scholars who study these organizations will come together to explore three questions:

  1. What are some of the key insights VOSS scholars have into managing virtual organizations?
  2. Which of these insights are most useful and what are the areas that can use more research?
  3. How can a sustainable network of VOSS scholars and practitioners be developed?

First ‘Managing Cyberinfrastructure’ Workshop a Success!

On October 6-8, 2011, we held our first  “Managing Cyberinfrastructure” workshop in Athens, Georgia (at the beautiful University of Georgia). See:

In this worshop, ideas from the first year of research into computationally-intensive centers were shared with center managers to see if these ideas make sense, and if they are potentially valuable directions for future research. We are finalizing a report from this workshop that should be posted soon…

The bottom line is that people were interested and engaged! Centers are growing and becoming complex and themes from organizational science are resonating with center managers.
