The workshop on Trust in Virtual Teams provides an opportunity for in-depth discussion and community building in which trust in virtual teams will be the central theme. Virtual teams have become prevalent as the result of the interplay of several aspects which come into play during collaborative activities. While there is some progress in supporting collaborations among members of virtual teams, trust remains an aspect that bears further investigation. Trust is essential for effective and efficient collaborations to take place and is more challenging when people are unable to meet face-to-face. This workshop aims to generate discussions which address three key issues within this general theme: 1) the factors that engender and inhibit trust, 2) the structure of a trust framework, 3) and the requirements for software tools that support the development of positive trust during virtual collaborations.
To participate: Submit a 2-4 page position paper on one of the workshop themes. Submissions will be reviewed by workshop organizers. Deadline for submissions: November 2, 2012
