Call for Participation
Conducting research with communities who are at risk of being stigmatized
can be a challenging endeavor. It is often difficult to reach and recruit
individuals for research purposes regarding a stigmatized condition or
situation. Yet, researchers in our field have recognized the importance of
work in this area and have individually developed a range of strategies to
reach, recruit, and work with these populations (e.g., addiction,
homelessness, HIV, depression, LGBTQ+, etc.)

This will be an insightful one-day workshop on Saturday, November 3rd
during the CSCW 2018 Conference in New York’s Hudson River (Jersey City).
The workshop will be led by a group of researchers who have worked with
different stigmatized groups. They will share their experiences and
challenges throughout the workshop! We invite any student, researcher, or
practitioner who is or has worked with any type of stigmatized population.
The focus of the workshop is to present, discuss, and compare strategies
and experiences when working with stigmatized communities in the context of
the ever-evolving nature of technology. The outcomes of the workshop will
include an outline for an article that will summarize the strategies and
practices discussed as well as highlight the approaches that have led to
the best outcomes across different populations. Thus, this will be a great
opportunity for participants to discuss and learn how to work better with
stigmatized populations!

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

- Challenges of working with stigmatized populations
- Best practices in designing and executing research with stigmatized
- Recruitment
- Data Collection/Analysis
- Research Outcomes
- Privacy and Confidentiality
- Ethical Considerations

Participants are asked to submit a 2 - 4 pages position paper that
addresses at least one of the workshop themes and highlighted topics
provided in this call. Submissions will be accepted based on the relevance
and development of the chosen topic, as well as their potential to
contribute to the workshop discussions and goals.
