1st Call for Papers
Workshop on "Worst Case Practices Teaching us the Bright Side: Making Meaning out of the Dark Side of Assistive Technologies on the Shop Floor"
at 17th European Conference on Computer-Supported Cooperative Work (ECSCW 2019, June 8 - 12)

Location, Date:
Salzburg (Austria), June 9 2019
Sebastian Egger-Lampl, Cornelia Gerdenitsch, Thomas Meneweger, Torkil Clemmensen, Thomas Ludwig, Myriam Lewkowicz
Deadline for Submission:
April 29 2019
Digitization, which often claims the vision to support and assist employees with suitable technologies, is immanent in nowadays industry sector. This claim implies the challenge to not only design technologies appropriately, but also to consider that such implementations of assistive technologies do transform and shape existing work practices. Within this workshop we welcome researchers from a diverse range of disciplines to submit concepts or design ideas of worst practices related to assistive technologies for the shop floor. These worst practices may either be related to previous experiences and projects of the workshop participants or related to three areas of tensions we describe in this proposal. By discussing worst practices of assistive technologies, we aim to make central aspects of assistance visible and discussable. Within the workshop, attendees should discuss these worst practices and then jointly work on best practices designs and prototypes.
Topics (suggestion but not limited to):

-         Work flow: routines and interruptions

-         Quality assurance: worker's tacit knowledge

-         Workstation setup: individual vs. standardized

-         ...
The position paper should be 2-4 pages and follow the ECSCW exploratory papers template. Send submissions and inquiries to the following email address: [log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]>
At least one author of the position paper must attend the workshop. All participants must register for both the workshop and for at least one day of the conference.

With best regards,
Thomas Ludwig.
