Call for Participation for a Workshop on Exploring the Concept of Care
Networks for Designing Healthcare Technologies @ ECSCW. June 8th 2019 in
Salzburg, Austria


More Information:

In conjunction with ECSCW 2019:

Co-sponoored by ACM Future of Computing Academy:


The goal of this workshop is to explore the concept of care networks in
CSCW and to devise a plan for future research on healthcare technologies
and systems. We will discuss collaborative care situations that are better
understood by exploring various aspects of care networks including human
and non-human actors and roles. Our approach will be based on co-creation,
bringing diverse perspectives together to speak about the various
potentials as well as consequences of technologies that support care


Prospective participants are invited to submit a 2-4 pages position paper
using the EUSSET template. Submissions should be sent to:
[log in to unmask] by April 8th 2019.

We expect position papers that discuss collaborative care networks,
including: case studies or reports on recent experiments or prototypes,
ethnographic fieldwork or qualitative studies, theoretical accounts, and
critical reflections. Possible topics include, but are not limited to:

   - Who/what cares or is involved in care?

   - How do different actors of a care network engage in care?

   - What tensions exist in care networks?

   - How are different perspectives integrated and negotiated?

   - How is the care network structured?

   - How do actors manage the multidirectional nature of care?

   - To what extent are care networks (de)centralized?

   - Does focusing on care networks change how we conceptualize care?

   - How to design for care networks?

   - How to incorporate different perspectives in design?

   - How to enable collaborative decision making for care networks?

   - What are methodological approaches or challenges to studying care

   - What else has been examined around care networks in the CSCW community?


April 8th 2019: Submission deadline
