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.

Social Hub & Circles

EUSSET has a dedicated Community Hub. All EUSSET members are invited to meet, share their thoughts, organize circles, groups of interest, or facilitate events affiliated with EUSSET.

Come and join us here.

Online Events


The EUSSET Colloquium, will be running on the second Wednesday of the month.


The EUSSET Get-together, will run on the last Friday of the month and is meant to be a space for informal exchanges.

Summer School

It’s a once in a lifetime experience: the EUSSET CSCW Summer School taking place each year alternating between Lake Como and the historical town of Bolzano in Northern Italy. The outstanding environment, the leisure atmosphere, and the direct contact between students and experienced researchers make it a place to be for anyone interested in collaboration support or practice-centered computing.

EUSSET Digital Library



EUSSET runs its own Digital Library – With this, EUSSET is publicising the richness of what the community has produced and is producing, thereby providing visibility to research that focuses on practice-based research on socially-embedded technologies. The Digital Library is an open access repository, where you can read, download, copy, distribute, print, search and link to full text articles. These articles had been published as part of conferences that have been organized by or that are affiliated with EUSSET.

ECSCW Conference

ECSCW is the primary venue for exchange concerning the practice-centred computing and the design of cooperation technologies. ECSCW has been instrumental in defining the agenda of CSCW research since the beginning, and it still is. It has been the key forum for identifying and exploring issues such as
  • the situated nature of action and interaction and its implications;
  • the role of ethnography in CSCW and in computing in general,
  • the role and nature of ‘awareness’ in cooperative work;
  • the role of paper-based and other material artifacts in cooperative work;
  • highly flexible collaboration infrastructures and tailorable systems.
