Aims and scope
After the introduction of the acronym CSCW (Computer Supported Cooperative Work) in the late 80’ the themes connected with the understanding of how collaboration is managed in different work settings and with the design of the information and communication technologies supporting collaboration have become pervasive in many scientific, business and social discourses. The constant growth of the application domains where the CSCW themes can inform both social studies and technology design asks for a continuous elaboration of the theoretical foundations of the underpinning disciplines through a reflection on the outcomes of the field studies, on the methods applied in the social and technological investigations and on the impact of the technologies on the settings in which they are deployed. The combination of these three perspectives should be the patrimony of any researcher who wants to grasp the complex and subtle issues that are involved in the CSCW research area.
Structure of the lectures
Mon 22 August
The School opens with a lecture about the main issues characterizing CSCW research and applications. The students present themselves and their research activities.
Tue 23 August
The lectures will present the main field studies that have influenced the understanding of cooperative work and the impact of cooperation technologies in work settings.
Wed 24 August
The lectures will present and discuss the main tenets and applicability of the methods that are used in the CSCW research to collect and analyse the data gathered during a field study.
Thu 25 August
The lectures will present and discuss the various kinds of cooperative technologies in relation to their functionality, development and deployment in real settings.
Fri 26 August
The school closes with a lecture about the issues involved in planning a research and/or participatory design project that addresses issues of collaboration. The students present the results of their activities undertaken during the School.
After the lectures the students will engage in group work, that is tasks that they have to collaboratively accomplish to elaborate on lectures’ contents.
The prospective teachers
Mark Ackermann (University of Michigan), Liam Bannon (University of Limerick), Pernille Bjørn (University of Copenhagen), Susanne Bødker (Aarhus University), Tone Bratteteig (University of Oslo) , Federico Cabitza (University of Milano Bicocca), Luigina Ciolfi, (Sheffield Hallam University), M. Lewcowicz (Troyes University of Technology), Kjeld Schmidt (University of Siegen), Carla Simone (University of Milano Bicocca), Ina Wagner (Vienna University of Technology), Volker Wulf (University of Siegen).
To whom
The school offers to the young researchers (PhD or post-doc) an opportunity to become aware of the challenges characterizing the CSCW research. The interaction among the participants (both teachers and students) will promote the generation of new ideas and their confrontation with the experiences they have acquired in their field research.
The students are expected to have a positive attitude toward action research and to be familiar with the basic CSCW literature: some indications will be given prior to the school start to create a prospective background of reference.
The school will release a certificate that can be used to acquire 7.5 ECTS upon the approval of the outcomes of their group work activities.
The location
The school will be held in the facilities offered by the Centro di Cultura Scientifica “Alessandro Volta”, Como (Italy), and specifically at Villa del Grumello, a nice villa close to Como: the center of the town can be reached in a ten minutes walk along the border of the lake.
The participants are normally hosted in the bedrooms of the villa from Sunday night: a convention with some hotels in Como allows for alternative solutions if necessary. There will be a WIFI connection: additional information about the available facilities and the registration modalities will be given later on.
