Reading Group Oct 10 2007 Oct 10, 2007 from 12:30 PM to 01:30 PM couches in Quinn,
The paper proposed is: Cooper, R. (1992) ‘Formal Organization as Representation: Remote Control, Displacement and Abbreviation’. In Reed, M. & Hughes, M. (eds) Rethinking Organization: New Directions in Organization Theory and Analysis, 254-272. London: Sage. The penultimate section of Cooper’s chapter considers how this type of analysis can fundamentally transform the way in which conventional approaches to formal organization structure proceed by way of statistical representations and operationalizations of supposedly fixed and unchanging dimensions. In its place, Cooper’s focus on the representational technologies facilitating control at a distance transforms these structures into dynamic socio-technical networks along which ‘the organization’ travels.” .

GSW Workshop Sep 25, 2007 from 08:40 AM to 10:40 PM University of Limerick,
Collaborative Work in GSD Workshop. Global Software Development (GSD) is a growing focus of attention in universities and firms worldwide. The motives for distributing software development on a global scale include expected reductions in costs, exploiting a broader skills base, and being closer to emerging markets. In GSD, business units collaborate across time zones, organizational boundaries, work cultures and geographical distances, something that ultimately has led to an increasing diversification and growing complexity of collaborative working practices. The real-world practice of developing software in globally distributed projects has been viewed from various perspectives, though technical and engineering in conjunction with managerial and organizational viewpoints have dominated the research agenda so far. Successful participation in GSD, however, is ultimately a matter of the participants understanding and exploiting the particularities of their respective local contexts at specific points in time and exploring practical solutions through the resources available to local actors. During this workshop, we would like to focus on GSD as a collaborative human activity, where the participants are highly dependent on computer-based technologies to be able to cooperate across geographical boundaries and to accomplish their work.
ECSCW07 from Sep 24, 2007 08:30 AM to Sep 28, 2007 05:30 PM Limerick, Ireland,
The Tenth European Conference on Computer Supported Cooperative Work (ECSCW) and will take place in Limerick, Ireland, 24-28 September 2007. Workshops and Master classes will take place on 22-23 September 2007. Workshops are designed to offer an informal environment for focused group discussion and learning. Workshops may be for half-day or full day sessions. Master classes will offer a small number of participants the opportunity to learn about specific CSCW concepts, methods and techniques from recognised experts. Live demonstrations and videos form an important part of the Conference technical programme. Demonstrations of both research prototypes and commercial products by those directly involved in developing the systems are welcomed. Poster submissions graphically illustrating original CSCW systems, experiences, or applications are invited. Successful posters will be on show for the duration of the conference. The Doctoral Colloquium offers PhD students in CSCW the opportunity to present and discuss their work with each other as well as a number of experienced CSCW researchers. Students from all the CSCW related disciplines are encouraged to apply, although numbers will be limited.
LCD PGConf 2007: Changes and Challenges for Contemporary Organisations from Sep 21, 2007 08:30 AM to Sep 22, 2007 05:30 PM Lancaster University Management School,
LCD Post-graduate conference 2007. The conference is the first of three annual post-graduate forums organised between; the Department of Organisation, Work and Technology at Lancaster University Management School; the Operations, Information & Technology Subject Group at the Judge Business School, Cambride; and the Centre for Innovation, Technology & Organisation at the School of Business, UCD. The conference provides an opportunity for post-graduates and recent post-doctoral students to share their thinking and research findings providing a forum for discussion, collaboration and intellectual exchange for all those interested in any of the following fields of research or practice. In addition to paper presentations, the conference will incorporate practical and instructive workshops for attendees. The theme of this conference is broad in order to encourage contributions from a wide range of fields, yet it also lends itself to a common set of concerns regarding the changes and challenges facing contemporary organisations and those studying and researching them. Topics of interest may include: • What are the contemporary and future challenges facing organisations and the field of organisational studies? • What changes have already taken place and how have these affected organisations and employees? • How does the dynamic nature and adoption of technologies affect the workplace and work practices? • Against what context do such organisational changes and challenges occur? • What methodologies inspire research into these areas?

Ethnography 2007, Keele University, UK. September 5 - 7 2007 from Sep 05, 2007 08:55 AM to Sep 07, 2007 05:55 PM Keele University,
The 2nd Symposium on Current Developments in Ethnographic Research in the Social and Management Sciences titled "Ethnographic Futures: Voice, Politics and Representation" follows the success of the first symposium in Liverpool in 2006. This symposium aims to bring together established and emerging social and management science scholars who are interested in these areas of research. Its key aim is to provide an interdisciplinary forum for academics to explore current trends and future directions in qualitative research we anticipate that the symposium will appeal not only to organization and management academics but also those working within sociology, anthropology, human geography, law, criminology, politics, cultural studies, environmental studies, gender studies and social and public policy.

IFIP 8.6, University of Salford, UK, June 2007 from Jun 13, 2007 08:30 AM to Jun 16, 2007 03:40 PM Salford, Manchester, UK.,
Although significant progress has been made, aided by academic colloquia such as IFIP WG8.6, technological innovation continues to be problematic for many organisations, with the rate of failure of IS/IT projects remaining stubbornly high. It is clearly important to understand why some innovation efforts are successful while others fail – why the same technology that “diffuses” in one context meets only resistance and rejection in others! The aim of this conference is to help move forward our understanding of the organisational dynamics of technology-based innovation by diversifying the research agenda in three general areas: theoretical perspectives, methodologies, and organisational sectors. Paper submission deadline: 1st December 2006
