Question: What aspect(s) of this conference benefited you the most?
Answer: The breadth of research questions and perspectives of the group (i.e. approaching offshoring-related research questions from a wide range of perspectives), the small size facilitated interaction with most of the participants, and the different formats for discussing ideas.

With the support of corporate partners and the FIU CIBER, Duke CIBER launched the Offshoring Research Network for the study of the offshoring of technical and administrative work in 2004.
Duke CIBER now administers two annual surveys (corporate and service provider surveys) that allow us to gather statistical data and observe emerging trends in offshoring, from both the U.S. and abroad. It provides a rich data set for research and publications that are important to advancing international business research and American global competitiveness as well as serving as a depository of information.
Offshoring research findings are published in academic journals and articles written for mass distribution and remain a resource on the ORN community forum. Academic researchers, students, practitioners and corporate leaders benefit from the research, annual report, and case studies that come out of the offshoring research.
