Conducting Research with Stigmatized Populations: Practices, Challenges,
and Lessons Learned.

To be held during the CSCW 2018 Conference on November 3, 2018 in Jersey
City, USA.

Call for Papers

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.

This will be a one-day workshop on *S**aturday, November 3rd* during the
CSCW 2018 Conference in New York’s Hudson River (Jersey City). We invite
any student, researcher, or practitioner who is or has worked with any type
of stigmatized population. We expect to have between 10 to 15 participants
in total. 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 approaches that
have led to the best outcomes across different 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
   populations
   -

   Recruitment
   -

   Data Collection/Analysis
   -

   Research Outcomes
   -

   Privacy and Confidentiality
   -

   Ethical Considerations


Potential participants are asked to submit 4 to 6 page position papers in
ACM SIGCHI extended abstract format that address the workshop themes and
highlighted topics provided in the call. Submissions will be accepted based
on the relevance and development of the chosen topic, as well as their

be peer-reviewed by the workshop’s Program Committee, a list of which can
be found on the workshop website.

Position papers will be peer reviewed and final decisions will be made by
the workshop organizers taking into account their relevance to the workshop
topics. Accepted papers should cover a variety of populations, topics,
methods, and research areas in order to ensure a productive discussion.
Accepted papers will be published online on the workshop website. All
papers should be formatted using the standard ACM SIGCHI format and should
include an abstract of no more than 150 words.
