They integrate (or maybe just technically connect) people in new space-time combinations. Cultural differences in signs, meanings, actions, conventions, norms or values, etc., raise new research issues ranging from technical usability issues to methodological and ethical issues of the notion of culture in information systems. Moreover, the globalization provokes new challenges and additional issues for IS researchers. This session is intended to reflect on the way information and communication systems have been used/applied in culturally different contexts (local and global). It also will explore new theoretical and practical perspectives in researching, designing, developing and applying information systems for cultural and intercultural usage. The session will encourage both theoretical and practical issues to be addressed from interdisciplinary perspectives. In particular, the session will cover the following topics:       Theoretical approaches and methodological issues for the study of        culture in information systems.       Empirical studies on the use of information systems by culturally        different users, or on their application in different cultural        contexts.       Cultural and linguistic aspects of human-computer interaction, e.g.,        user interface and multimedia information design for global interactive        systems       Methods, models and tools for supporting intercultural computer-        mediated communication and cooperation, e.g., supporting articulation,        understanding, idea generation, discussion, decision making, etc.       Frameworks, models and developments related to culture for global        interactive systems       Cognitive, social, political and legal factors, e.g. trust, ethical        issues, language barriers, national or organizational policies, etc.,        which enable or constrain intercultural communication.
