Dear Colleagues,


The BCS Sociotechnical Group invites you to this event on the 20th of
November 2012.

There is a rich tradition of sociotechnical perspectives including
contemporary analyses of major projects such as the National Programme for
Information Technology in the NHS. Also, recent times have witnessed
increasingly diverse applications of sociotechnical approaches in response
to a range of organisational challenges. These include promoting green
behaviour, workspace design, social care and child welfare, and the
management of crowd behavior and crowd events. With this in mind the aims
of this workshop are:

€	To build awareness of these exciting advances and their impact on
practice
€	To stimulate discussion on possible future applications of a
sociotechnical approach
€	To identify opportunities for interdisciplinary research in this area


 Wilkes Room 2, British Computer Society, The
  Davidson Building, 5 Southampton Street, London, WC2E 7HA
