Overview of Workshop:

The workshop "Teams 2.0 - Virtual Team Management in the Social
Network's Age" aims to identify challenges in the field of virtual team
management in the age of rapid developments in internationalization and
globalization. It brings together academia and industry to discuss
important and emerging issues and trends. The workshop will be platform
for presentations of innovative and challenging position papers and
posters. In addition, discussion sessions will be aimed at identifying
promising research directions and initiating interdisciplinary

Topics of Interest:

Due to rapid developments in information technology,
internationalization and globalization the way projects are organized
and managed has to be reconsidered.
Project teams formed within one organizational unit are often not
flexible enough to deal with time-to-market requirements or the need to
change and adapt projects in later project phases. Therefore virtual
teams have become increasingly attractive for organizations. However, a
project manager who has to establish an effective virtual project and an
effectively working virtual team cannot be successful, if skills,
knowledge and especially social relationships of the team members are
not taken into account during the entire team lifecycle and represented
in project management tools.
This workshop will give researchers in the areas of virtual group and
team management and social networks an opportunity to come together and
discuss important aspects and open questions arising at the interface
where both research disciplines meet each other. We encourage
submissions from researchers with a variety of backgrounds and knowledge
addressing topics related to virtual group and team management in the
social network's age and how projects, teams and involved members could
benefit from this interdisciplinary approach.

Topics include, but are not limited to:
        - Social networks in the scope of virtual teams,
        - Recommender systems to find corresponding expertise and experts,
        - Knowledge acquisition and management,
        - Intelligent and challenging user interfaces,
        - Legal, social and economic demands and benefits.
