Fourth International Summer School on Computer Supported Cooperative Work
August 26 - August 30
26-30 August 2019, 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. Monday: Introduction and foundations of CSCW Tuesday: Field Studies Wednesday: Conceptual foundations; Participatory Design Thursday: Design Friday: Theoretical foundations; Writing Faculty Luigina Ciolfi, Dave Randall, Kjeld Schmidt, Carla Simone, Ina Wagner, Antonella di Angeli, Claus Bossen, Nina Boulus-Rødje (For updates check: www.eusset.eu/events/summer-school/) Important dates
