Globalization has historically been tied to technological innovation, and the present era of a networked information society is no different. Information systems (IS) have provided the infrastructure for multinational businesses, created new cultural connections irrespective of geographic boundaries and distances, and allowed an increasingly mobile global population to be connected to their friends, families, and cultures no matter where they are. Global online communities have emerged as the central elements of digital platforms allowing for exchanges of information, goods, or services. Businesses across all sectors have been updating their business models to reap benefits from the advances in IS, which allowed many to extend their reach into global and international markets, and thus also into different cultural contexts. Of particular interest to the track this year are implications of the Covid-19 pandemic for global, international, and cross cultural research in IS; this includes, for example, the positive or negative consequences of remote work in particular for global competition and cybersecurity, regulatory issues, and questions related to the resilience of global IS spanning different cultures and regions. However, the track generally welcomes submissions that relate to all aspects of global IS, or IS research situated in a global, international or cross-cultural context.
