fyi.
I know Marleen, Volker and Chip (Steinfeld): good, smart people
and organizers. And you can't beat the location. Wish I could go.

Subject: [Comtech] 2nd CfP: ICT in Regional Clusters

Call for Papers for a Workshop at COOP 2006
France, Provence - May 9-12, 2006
(http://tech-web-n2.utt.fr/coop/?rub=c4p)

The Role of ICT in Interfirm Networks and Regional Clusters

Organizers:
- Marleen Huysman, Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, The Netherlands
- Jean Claude Nataf, STmicroelectronics, Rosset, France
- Bernhard Nett, Fraunhofer FIT, Sankt Augustin, Germany
- Markus Rohde, University of Siegen, Germany
- Chip Steinfield, Michigan State University, East Lansing, MI, USA
- Volker Wulf, University of Siegen and Fraunhofer FIT, Sankt Augustin,
   Germany

Objectives of the Workshop:
The importance of inter-firm networks, networks between academia and
industry, and regional clusters continues to grow. Nuturing regional
clusters becomes a major political objective in a globalizing world. The
French government has, for instance, just set up a competition to
allocate 1.5 billion Euro over a period of three year to foster regional
clusters in high tech domains.
Much attention has been given to the need to provide adequate
information infrastructures so that such regional clusters can flourish.
The evidence regarding ICT usage and benefits in such clusters, both for
internal coordination in the cluster (e.g. communityware, CSCW and
collaborative commerce) and for contact with external markets (e.g. B2B
and B2C e-commerce) is rather mixed. In this workshop, we want to
explore the role of ICTs in such networks. The focus on research
questions concerning ICT is driven by an overall discussion on the
importance of regional clusters.
There is a growing number of studies of such networks, but it is
difficult to generalize or aggregate the results of this work. We
believe that a workshop such as this provides an important opportunity
for researchers to share ideas and possibly coordinate their efforts. In
this way, it may be possible to gain insights that would otherwise be
beyond reach.
This workshop is designed to maximize interaction time among researchers
who are actively engaged in research on inter-firm clusters.

Submission details:
Position papers should contain a brief overview (max. 5000 words) over
the key ideas of the presentation and some information on the
occupational background of the submitter.
Position papers should be sent to: [log in to unmask] Position
paper submission: March, 28; Notification of acceptance: April, 10.

Publication of results:
We plan to publish selected contributions to the workshop in a special
issue of an international journal.

partnerships into collaborative projects for more than 300 enterprises
and academic bodies mainly based in the Provence Alpes Cote d’Azur
region. Before getting involved in this regional cluster initiative he
headed ST University. He is a regular speaker in conferences organized
