Call for Participation: Structures for Knowledge Co-creation between Organisations and the Public

An ACM CSCW 2014 Workshop, to be held on February 15th, 2014 in Baltimore, MD, USA.

*** Apologies for cross posting. Deadline for position papers has been extended until the 1st of December ***

Social computing technologies are emerging to support innovative new relationships between organisations and the public. Inspired by concepts such as collective intelligence and crowdsourcing, diverse organisations are exploring new ways to increase engagement with the public, collect localised knowledge, or leverage human cognition and creativity. The COP2014 workshop will assimilate the craft understanding and experimentation underpinning innovations in relationships between public and professional realms. We aim to provide an opportunity for discussion and to build understanding of the principles of making these sociotechnical systems work, and discuss possible designs and opportunities that may be valuable and remain underexplored.

We welcome participation from interested organisations, alongside those conducting research in this area. Topics of interest include: How can systems be designed for participation that is beneficial to individuals and organisations? How do we draw boundaries between ‘official’ and externally-generated knowledge? How can professional activities connect with the just-in-time, emergent nature of amateur interactions?

To apply to attend, please submit a position paper (up to 3000 words) by December 1st, 2013. The position paper should tackle the question:

"What is the future of collaborative knowledge creation activities between organisations and the public?"

Position papers should be submitted via email to: [log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]>
