Workshop Proposals Overview

The ECSCW 2019 Workshops provide an opportunity to engage in discussions
with other researchers, present and illustrate new developments on
different themes within CSCW, provoke and reflect on novel perspectives and
receive feedback on early ideas in a friendly and constructive manner. CSCW
is a challenging and rapidly developing area of research where the exchange
of ideas and discussion of concepts with other researchers provide an
effective way of gaining new insights and identifying opportunities for
possible collaborations.

ECSCW 2019 invites workshop proposals addressing basic research questions,
new methodologies and approaches, innovative technologies, and emerging
research areas. Workshops should involve attendees in working together to
share, reflect and develop new insights, and should avoid consisting only
of a series of presentations.


Details for Submission


Workshops may be full-day or two-day sessions. Workshop proposals should
consist of an abstract and a detailed proposal of the workshop program. The
abstract should be no more than 150 words. The body of the proposal should
be no more than 3000 words, and should include a description of the
theme(s) of the workshop, the workshop activities and goals, the duration
of the workshop, short bios of the organiser(s), the maximum number of
participants expected, and the means of recruiting and selecting

Accepted workshops will need to provide a short description of the workshop
for publication on the conference web site containing the workshop title,
names and affiliations of organisers, 150-word abstract, workshop website,
and details on position paper submission or other participation
requirements. We encourage workshop organisers to create web-based
resources for their workshops so that advertising, submission and
organisation can be handled online.

Accepted workshop proposals will be published in the ECSCW/EUSSET digital
library. In addition, workshop organizers will have the opportunity to
present the results of the workshop in the poster session of the main

 Master Classes Overview

Masterclasses provide the opportunity to learn about specific CSCW methods,
concepts and approaches from experts in the related field within small
in-depth group discussions. Masterclasses facilitate a more focused
discussion on any CSCW topic, and enable organizers to do theoretical input
in lectures as well as engage participants in more hands-on workshop
experiences. While masterclasses are open to a broad range of participants,
these are particularly targeted at early career researchers and PhD


Details for Submission


Masterclasses may be half-day or full-day sessions. Proposals should be no
more than 3000 words, and should include a description of the theme and
goals of the master class, the background of the organiser(s) and the
maximum number of participants expected. Further, please indicate any
specific infrastructure or material requirements within the proposal.

Important to Consider


This year, we in particular invite hands-on workshop & masterclasses
proposals that focus on the design and creation of interactive artifacts to
take advantage of the workshops’ venue, the Center for HCI at the
University of Salzburg, to their full potential. The workshop venue
provides the facilities and equipment needed for prototypical
implementations of interactive systems (e.g., laser cutting, 3D printer,
cutting plotter, saws, drilling machines, sewing machines, microcontroller
and electronic components, etc.). Thereby, the venue provides the necessary
creative environment to host a variety of hands-on masterclasses. The
spatial, technological, material requirements (e.g., prototyping material)
and any additional resources, should be clearly stated and argued for in
the proposal.
