Fifth International Summer School on Computer Supported Cooperative Work

*24-28 August 2020, Bolzano, Italy.*

The CSCW Summer School provides young researchers (PhD or post-doc) with
the opportunity to deepen their understanding of CSCW as a research field
and community. The interaction among the participants (both teachers and
students) will promote the generation of new ideas and their confrontation
with the experiences they have acquired in their field research.
*Aims and scope*

After the introduction of the acronym CSCW (Computer Supported Cooperative
Work) in the late 1980’ the themes connected with the understanding of
collaborative work practices and the design of artefacts supporting
collaboration have become pervasive in many scientific, business and social
discourses. The domains in which CSCW can inform sociotechnical design are
constantly growing and changing. This asks for a continuous elaboration of
the *theoretical foundations* of the underpinning disciplines through a
reflection on the outcomes of the *field studies*, on the *methods* applied
in the social and technological investigations and on the *impact* of the
technologies on practices they are made part of. The combination of these
perspectives should be the patrimony of any researcher who wants to grasp
the complex and subtle issues that are involved in the CSCW research area.

The course will present central themes, methods and discussions within CSCW
by experienced scholars in conversations with participants. Full program
TBA soon (For updates check:
