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 suitable for studying just about any aspect of teamwork, international collaboration, org. behavior, and international business.


Think about it as a giant virtual research lab.


We believe in open collaboration, so we share our data.
More on our data and principles of collaboration here:



To boost our research productivity and collaboration, X-Culture organizes regular research HACKATHONS, a.k.a. Paper Development Conference.


Four-day, non-stop paper development marathon.  You return home with a clear paper idea, co-authors, initial results, feedback, and a draft of paper.
