*Collaborative Appropriation: How Couples, Teams, Groups and Communities Adapt and Adopt Technologies*

in conjunction with CSCW 2016

February 27th, 2016
San Francisco, CA, USA

Workshop Website:

Important dates:
- 16th December 2015: Submission of Position Papers
- 18th January 2016: Notification of acceptance
- 25th January 2016: Camera-ready version
- 27th February 2016: Workshop at CSCW 2016

Previous workshops and papers have examined how individual users adopt and adapt technologies to meet their own local needs, “completing design through use.” However, there has been little systematic study of how groups of people engage collaboratively in these activities. This workshop opens a discussion for these under-studied forms of collaborative appropriation, using a broad range of perspectives including field studies, design explorations, theoretical accounts, and critical reflections.

We invite scholars and practitioners with a variety of backgrounds, who share an interest in understanding collaborative appropriation and would like to reflect upon their experiences in this context, to submit a position paper on one or more of the following topics (or related to them):

- Practical experiences in design for collaborative appropriation;
- Flexible, open design and tailorability as support for collaborative appropriation;
- Design goals, guidelines, and principles for collaborative appropriation;
- Major drivers to design for collaborative appropriation;
- Emergent roles (actors) in collaborative appropriation practices;
- Characterization and differentiation of collaborative appropriation between couples, teams, groups, and communities;
- Theories and methods for studying collaborative appropriation;
- Lessons learned from other design movements and research domains to inform the design for collaborative appropriation.

Please submit a position paper (from 2 to 6 pages in the CSCW ACM sigCHI EA format – see until 16th December, 2015 to [log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]>.

The submissions will be reviewed by the organizers with support of other researchers forming a dedicated program committee and selected according to their potential to contribute to the workshop topic and to foster discussion.

All accepted contributions (notifications will be sent out on the 18th January, 2016) will be made available on the website to allow participants to prepare for the workshop. The organizers may consider the publication of revised versions of accepted papers as part of a special issue in a CSCW related journal.
