---Workshop Content---

In the workshop, we want to bring together researchers and practitioners
reporting on the usage and development of shared visualizations, be it
e.g. process models or others. The workshop is intended to provoke
discussion and generate new impulses for practice and research.

The usage of graphical representations of work and business process such
as process models can be considered a common practice in modern
organizations. As their development can become a complex task it is
reasonable to draft them collaboratively. Also they become increasingly
useful when used by larger groups throughout an organization. However
despite modeling being a popular approach in practice, models are hardly
used by non-experts and have little impact on the people actually working
in these processes. This raises questions such as why there is so little
use of models after their creation, how this usage can be increased and
which kind of tools and modes of interaction are suitable for non-modeling
experts. Furthermore as collaborative modeling most of the time remains
restricted to collocated facilitated workshops. This approach however is
not feasible as processes have to be rapidly adjusted to changing
conditions inside and outside of an organization. Given the increasing
usage of graphical representations in organizations, their collaborative
use and creation is of vital interest for the CSCW community and therefore
this workshop can be a starting point in forming a research community.


The workshop welcomes different kind of contributions, including the
description of case studies and other empirical work on model usage and
development, position papers e.g. describing future research and
educational experiences with collaborative models usage and development.
Topics of the workshop include but are not restricted to the following:
- Collaborative development of and interaction with models in different
settings such as:
- Processes and approaches of collaborative modeling
- Processes and settings of collaborative usage of process models
- Overcoming barriers for collaborative use and creation of models and
- The influence of users on models (e.g. collaborative modeling
participants on models) and the influence of models on users (e.g. users
discussing a model and behavior changes)


We will accept contributions in two different formats:

- Short papers such as reports of best practices or position papers which
may not exceed 3 pages.
- Long papers of such as reports of empirical studies or research in
progress which may not exceed 6 pages.

All contributions have to be formatted according to the ECSCW formatting
instructions and must be submitted in PDF format via eMail to

The ECSCW 2011 conference will be held at Aarhus University, Denmark from
24 to 28 September 2011. ECSCW is a bi-annual, international conference
series. Since 1989, it has engaged researchers and scholars from academia
and industry with high quality presentations and intense discussions
( ECSCW is interested in cooperative settings in the
workplace, in everyday life, and the civic society, and across boundaries
between these spheres of life. Submissions should address the unfolding
practices of everyday work and life, and the application of computing
technologies in these practices. Papers may also focus on design of such
technologies or on historical accounts of use. With design is meant
processes, methods, and outcoming artefacts. ECSCW solicits reports
reflecting a rich variety of quantitative and qualitative research
methods, including field studies and participatory approaches.
