Historical Material Only: Research Programme – 1988-1995

Between 1988 and 1995, while I was a full-time academic at the A.N.U., I ran a Research Programme in what I called 'Supra-Organisational Systems' (SOS), and most of my research and publications were undertaken within that Programme. Although I've long since returned to full-time consultancy, I've sustained my links with academe, and continue to conduct research and publish refereed articles, in areas that build on my SOS Research Programme.

My primary areas of interest during the period 1988-95 were:


Collaborations

During the period 1988-95, collaborative work was undertaken with a range of organisations, including industry associations (EDICA, now ECA, and Tradegate) and agencies of the governments of Australia and of several States (in particular the then Information Exchange Steering Committee, and the Departments of Administrative Services, Purchasing Australia within that Department, the Department of Finance and the Department of Transport).

I spent over five years of my business career outside Australia, in the United Kingdom and Switzerland. I have subsequently maintained my associations with German-speaking countries through participation in many international conferences, frequently as a member of the program committee, and as an editorial board member and referee for many international journals. From time to time, I undertake field-work overseas, and have been invited as a Visiting Professor at the Universities of Bern (Switzerland) and Linz (Austria). Links have also been established with the EDI World Institute, based in Montreal.

I collaborated with staff and students at other Australian and overseas Universities, in Australia (Curtin Uni. of Technology), Austria (Linz), Belgium (Namur), Canada (McGill and UBC), Germany (Hohenheim-Stuttgart), Singapore (NUS and NTU), Slovenia (Maribor), Switzerland (St Gallen), The Netherlands (Erasmus, Limburg), the United Kingdom (Sussex and Cranfield) and the United States (Denver and Arizona at Tucson).


Supervision of Research Candidates

In addition to undertaking research myself, working with academic colleagues, and employing casual research assistants, I supervised research candidates in the Graduate Programs in Commerce and in Computer Science & Technology at the Australian National University. (Subsequently, I've supervised doctoral and Honours candidates in Computer Science and elsewhere at A.N.U. In my role as a Visiting Professor at U.N.S.W. in the Baker & McKenzie Cyberspace Law & Policy Centre, I've also supervised several law doctorates).
