The winter 2011 Working Paper Series at NSU’s Graduate School of Computer and Information Sciences will culminate on May 2 when GSCIS Associate Professor Ling Wang, Ph.D., and doctoral candidate Ya-Chen Kao will present “Teacher-Student Collaboration on Designing Instructional Multimedia Materials: A Case Study of Wenzao Ursuline College of Languages.”

The forum will be held in the Carl DeSantis Building, in the fourth floor Dean’s conference room at 10:30 a.m.

During the last series presentation on Apr. 19, Florida International University Associate Professor Weidong Xia, Ph.D., presented “IS Structure and IS Performance: The Mediating Roles of IS Coordination and Integration.”

The research paper discussed recent trends towards increasing corporate control of the IS function by linking three common IS structure dimensions (IS range, centralization, and standardization) to IS performance through two mediators, IS coordination and integration. Using survey data collected from the top IS executives of 148 large companies in the United States; substantial empirical support for the new theoretical perspective was found.

The Working Paper Series is open to researchers with an interest in different aspects of computer and information sciences. For more information, please visit
