It is time for yet another very interesting EUSSET Colloquium. On the 8th of June, from 16:30 to 18:00 CEST, we will meet again to discuss relevant aspects concerning practice-centred computing. As usual, there will be two discussion sessions focusing on different topics. and Technology, will lead a discussion on governance models for public sector platforms under a public value perspective. The second session will feature a discussion led by Gerolf Nauwerck, Department of Information Technology, Uppsala University, on the challenge of functional stupidity and empty labour to CSCW.

Welcome to EUSSET!

This is EUSSET

An Introduction

EUSSET strives to be the primary international community devoted to practice-centered computing, linking researchers worldwide. Based upon empirical, design-oriented and system development work in organizations and communities, practice-centered computing has provided concepts and innovative technologies that fit into practice and lead to more efficiency and a higher quality of labor and life by empowering the participants in these endeavors. We – as a community – base our work on and aim to foster inclusiveness, transparency and democracy on all levels.

Our Contribution

A Manifesto

We have entered the Digital Decade. During the previous 10 years, digitalization accelerated and those developments animated debates in the scientific, political and business communities. Participating in the above debates and proposing research and innovation perspectives requires the participation of all the members of our community. This participation will help us strengthen our awareness and develop ideas, viewpoints, theories, systems and methods, creating new and important contributions to debates, providing a unique perspective in research and innovation.
