The concept of distributed cognition indicates that knowledge is stretched across organizational actors, rather than possessed by a single individual or shared by members of a community of practice. Organizations must grapple with issues such as how partial knowledge is shared across functional and task-related application domains, how knowledge- work practices are defined and coordinated across multiple knowledge domains, and how knowledge is mediated by various forms of information technology. The papers in this minitrack explore issues of organizational knowledge, viewed through the lens of distributed cognition.
