Dear AIB-Colleagues,

For those seeking to boost research productivity, publish, and expand
co-author network: X-Culture Research Hackathon.

You may have heard about the X-Culture Project.

About 5,000 people working in 850 global virtual teams from 40+ countries
participate in the project every semester. The teams are closely observed
and the project generates tons of data. We track over 2,000 variables;
longitudinal, multi-level, multi-source, multi-method data. The data are

collaboration, org. behavior, and international business.

Think about it as a giant virtual research lab.
