Fifth International Summer School on Computer Supported Cooperative Work

23-27 August 2021, Como, Italy.

About

The CSCW Summer School provides young researchers (PhD or post-doc) with the opportunity to deepen their understanding of CSCW as a research field and community. 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.

Aims and scope

After the introduction of the acronym CSCW (Computer Supported Cooperative Work) in the late 1980’ the themes connected with the understanding of collaborative work practices and the design of artefacts supporting collaboration have become pervasive in many scientific, business and social discourses. The domains in which CSCW can inform sociotechnical design are constantly growing and changing. This 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 practices they are made part of. The combination of these 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.

Program

The course will present central themes, methods and discussions within CSCW by experienced scholars in conversations with participants. Full program TBA soon (For updates check: www.eusset.eu/events/summer-school/)

Important dates

Location

We plan to hold the summer school onsite at the Villa del Grumello, a nice villa close to Como, Italy. The center of the town can be reached in a ten-minute walk along the border of the lake.

If the current Corona-situation does not permit us to hold the school onsite in Italy, it will be held online. The final decision as to whether the summer school will be held onsite or online, will be made medio April – beginning of May, 2021.

Chairs

  • Antonella di Angeli (Free University of Bozen-Bolzano – Italy)
  • Claus Bossen (Aarhus University – Denmark)
  • Nina Boulus-Rødje (Roskilde University – Denmark)
