[EXTENDED Deadline] CfP Workshop "Hybrid Collaboration - Moving Beyond Purely Co-Located or Remote Collaboration" @ ECSCW '19

[Apologies for possible crosspostings]

Call for Participation
Workshop "Hybrid Collaboration - Moving Beyond Purely Co-Located or Remote
Collaboration" @ ECSCW 2019, Salzburg, Austria
More info: https://ecscw2019workshop.projekte.fh-hagenberg.at

) Important Dates
Deadline for submission of position papers: April 24, 2019 (EXTENDED).
Notification of acceptance: May 2, 2019.
Date of Workshop: June 8, 2019.

) Introduction

New collaborative practices and technologies increasingly blur the
traditional boundaries between co-located and remote collaboration. Using
technologies such as connected interactive whiteboards and mobile devices,
team meetings are increasingly partially distributed with co-located and
remote members. Collaboration tools such as Slack also invite users to
transcend the dichotomy of synchronous and asynchronous team work.
In a first attempt to frame this new kind of collaborative practices,
Neumayr et al. (2018) have formulated their framework of “Hybrid
Collaboration” to enable the description and analysis of current hybrid
collaboration practices. Still, there is a considerable knowledge gap in
the field of hybrid collaboration although it is daily common practice.
This one-day workshop aims at bringing together researchers and
practitioners working on empirical research methodologies and currently
existing practical use cases of hybrid collaboration while ultimately
striving for a high level of usability and UX in the tools we develop in
the realm of either co-located or remote collaboration settings.

) Workshop Topics

The topics dealt with in this workshop include but are not limited to:

- What are the opportunities and challenges of researching hybrid
collaboration today?
- How can collaborative practices in hybrid meetings/events be studied in
naturalistic environments?
- How can we prototype hybrid collaboration and conduct controlled
experiments?
- Which established, alternative, or entirely novel research methods can
help to tackle those challenges?
- How can we reach a shared conceptualization and understanding of hybrid
collaboration, meetings and events? These concepts are often expressed
through other similar terminologies such as remote, online, hybrid, or
virtual collaboration, meetings, and events in partially distributed teams,
virtual teams, etc.

) Call for Participation

Please consider contributing to this workshop:
Participants will be selected based on their position paper submissions (up
to 4 pages in length using the recent ACM SIGCHI Extended Abstracts format:
https://sigchi.org/templates/). The submissions will be reviewed by the
workshop organizers and judged by their quality concerning relevance and
potential to stimulate discussion at the workshop.

Submissions should be sent to thomas.neumayr(at)fh-hagenberg.at and
banu.saatci(at)cc.au.dk in .pdf format on or before April 24, 2019.

The notification to the workshop participants will be distributed on May 2,
2019.

Accepted position papers will be distributed among the participants well
before the workshop to allow a familiarization with each others’ topics. In
this process, participants are asked to reflect on the other submissions
and bring questions with them.
