2nd CALL for Participation

Moving From Analysis to Design: Social Networks in the CSCW Context

at ECSCW 2003, 14 - 18 September 2003, Helsinki, Finland

The CSCW community has a tradition of adopting social and analytical
theories to understand groups and group processes as well as when designing
new systems to support and augment cooperative work. Social networks have a
long tradition in sociology and cultural anthropology, but as yet, they have
not broken into the CSCW mainstream. The key notion from network analysis,
that the interconnections between people can be used to understand and
improve their interactions, is one that has direct implications for CSCW
research. Network models have clear implications for research into
communication systems, teamwork, and knowledge management.

Individuals interested in participating in the workshop should submit a
4-page position paper describing work in one or more of the workshop topic
areas above. Position papers will be reviewed by the organizers and authors
will be notified by July 11th of acceptance to the workshop. One goal of the
workshop is to nurture interdisciplinary applications of social networks
that specifically consider CSCW perspective. Attention will be paid to
representing a diverse spectrum of positions. The workshop will be limited
to 15 participants.

Position Paper Deadline: June 25, 2003
Notification of Workshop Acceptance: July 11, 2003
