Dear colleagues,
At a time like this, when we seem to be particularly experiencing the ravages of disinformation, covid19, social injustice, and income inequality, I know many CSCW researchers and practitioners at the intersection of communities and technologies are engaged with "wicked problems" in their work.

If so, we want to hear from you at Communities & Technologies 2021.

My Best,

Konstantin Aal

10th International Conference on Communities & Technologies (C&T)
Call for Participation

The 10th International Conference on Communities & Technologies<> (C&T 2021<>), to be held at the University of Washington in Seattle from June 21-25, 2021, cordially invites you to submit<> research papers, case studies, workshop proposals, posters, demos, and doctoral research plans for potential presentation or facilitation at the conference! (We are optimistically planning for an in-person conference, but if pandemic conditions persist, alternative plans will be made.)

The biennial International Conference on Communities & Technologies (C&T) is the premier international forum for stimulating debate and disseminating research on the complex connections between communities – in their multiple forms – and information and communication technologies. C&T is brought to you by EUSSET, the European Society for Socially Embedded Systems, who also brings you ECSCW.  We welcome researchers, designers, educators, industry, practitioners, and students from the many disciplines and perspectives bearing on the interaction between community and technology.

The theme of C&T 2021 is “Wicked Problems in the Age of Tech<>.” Papers and proposals are accepted from a variety of relevant perspectives including technology, philosophy, social sciences, policy, design, business, art, the humanities, and so on. Examples of relevant topics include, but are not limited to, the following:

  *   Wicked problem domains such as the COVID-19 pandemic, climate change, racism, misogyny, policy brutality, the opioid crisis, immigration, human-trafficking, homelessness, authoritarianism, disinformation, poverty, public health, self-governance, and terrorism.
  *   Diverse communities and their relationships to technology; urban and rural, migrants, refugees, indigenous peoples, LGBTQ, activists and social movements, low-income communities, alt-right and hate groups; the developing world and non-Western societies; professional communities, communities of practice, research communities;
  *   Bottom-up movements, grassroots developments, civic activism, community engagement, participatory publics, communities and innovation; ethics, power and social justice issues;

  *   Civic problem-solving, communities in relation to urgent and complex challenges to the health of the planet and the people that inhabit it; collaborative systems; partnering with education; government, civil society, and movements;
  *   Support of community processes: sensemaking, online deliberation; issue, argumentation and discussion mapping; community ideation and idea management systems; collective decision-making; group memory; participatory sensory networks;
  *   The future of communities and technology; simulations, utopian or dystopian design; durable relationships and long-range goals; and
