Although a good number of submissions was received, the organisers have
decided to extend the submission deadline with another week - until the 1st
of June 2011.
Here are the workshop details:

Date: 25 September 2011
Venue: Aarhus University, Denmark

About the workshop

Over the last years, social media have permeated organizations, having yet
unknown impacts on social relationships and cooperative work in distributed
organizations. The “Enterprise 2.0 phenomenon” has been given considerable
attention by both scholars and practitioners, resulting in a significant
body of research on how social software is used in corporate environments
(e.g. Danis & Singer 2008; DiMicco et al. 2008; Farrell et al. 2010; Farrell
& Kellogg 2008; Koch 2008; Richter and Riemer 2009; Zhang et al. 2010). But
the research examining this impact is still in its infancy, and CSCW as a
field has not yet systematically enough approached the study of social media
use within organisations. The intent of this workshop is to bring together a
wide variety of researchers and practitioners who have experience from
within "socially media active" organisations, or have access and study
social media use in organisations, to share information on what is known and
to forge a research approach that draws on CSCW concepts and reflects the
CSCW perspective.


We want to…

…bring together researchers and practitioners who are focusing on, or are
interested in exploring, the uses of social media in the work place

…create a community interested in studying social media from a CSCW

…discuss the state-of-the-art, emerging themes, and opportunities for future


   * Changes in the character of work enabled by social media
   * The impact and implications of social media on providing computer
support for cooperative work
   * Identifying new use cases of social media (especially about situations
that have not been supported by groupware before)
   * The new dimensions added by social media to groupware
   * CSCW concepts applied to the study of social media uses in corporate
environments (e.g. awareness, coordination, place and space, common
information spaces, etc)
   * The adaptation of existing methods for studying CSCW in the context of
social media (virtual ethnography, mining digital repositories etc)

Call for participation

Potential workshop participants are invited to submit 2-4 page position
papers (Author kits and paper templates are available on the ECSCW website).
Using concrete case studies, the papers should focus on the relationship
between social media and CSCW, and aim to identify new research questions in
relation with this.
A short biography should be included for each author at the end of the

The workshop will take place as a full day session, with a maximum of 14 to
18 participants selected on the basis of submitted position papers.
Paper submission will be handled via EasyChair:
