Workshop: Supporting Intercultural Computer-Mediated Discourse: Methods,
Models, Architectures

We use the term "intercultural" instead of "cultural" to emphasis the
dialogical relationship of at least two participants from different cultures
in computer-mediated communication and cooperation contexts. Supporting
intercultural computer-mediated communication (I-CMC) requires, on the one
hand, the understanding of both enabling and constraining aspects (barriers)
of such a dialogical situations, and calls for, on the other hand, new ideas
for tools, architectures, etc., which may support, promote or enable
computer-mediated intercultural communication and cooperation.

This workshop explores the challenges in the intercultural computer-mediated
communication and cooperation environments and will provide a platform for
discussing empirical insights into the intercultural communication barriers
and practical and theoretical works for new designs, tools and architectures
that aims at overcoming them and enabling computer-mediated intercultural
communication and cooperation.

Participants will be selected based on their position papers. We also aim to
balance the workshop in terms of position on the analysis-design spectrum.
