Fwd: Eusset Summer School 2022: Call for members to the Scientific Committee
CALL FOR PARTICIPATION IN THE SCIENTIFIC COMMITTEE
Sixth EUSSET Summer School on
Computer Supported Cooperative Work: Foundations, methods and technologies
22-26 August 2022
Following the four successful editions of the School in 2015, 2016, 2018, 2019 and 2021, the sixth summer School will be held in Bolzano, Italy.
The school offers young researchers (PhD or post-doc) an opportunity to become aware of the challenges characterizing CSCW research. The application domains where CSCW can inform both social studies and technology design are constantly growing, and the aim of the Summer School is to acquaint participants with the basic theoretical foundations of CSCW and their continuous elaboration. This implies amongst other themes reflecting on the outcomes of field studies, on the methods applied in the social and technological investigations, and on the impact of the technologies on the settings in which they are deployed. The combination of these three perspectives should be the patrimony of any researcher who wants to grasp the complex and subtle issues that are involved in the CSCW research area.
We are looking for participation in the Scientific Committee of the 2022 Summer School. By being a member of the Scientific Committee, you participate in the development of the program of the Summer School: Defining the lecture plan, recruiting lecturers, managing the recruitment of the students, and monitoring the evaluation of their homework to encourage conceptual work. The ideal number of participants is between 15 and 20 students. They will receive lectures and participate in working groups to elaborate their contents and requirements to get 7.5 ECTS. Students are also expected to have read selected basic literature prior to attending the school.
The local Organizing Committee provides support for local administrative matters.
The most immediate task for the Scientific Committee is to develop the program for 2022 and start recruiting lecturers. The interested students should apply by the end of May 2022 by responding to the call for application that the Scientific Committee will disseminate as soon as possible. Students will receive confirmation of acceptance by mid-June and have to complete the administrative procedure before mid-July.
Candidates interested in serving on the Scientific Committee for 2022 are expected to have a strong academic record in the field and experience in the organization of teaching initiatives.
If you are interested in fostering the creation of a strong network of young CSCW researchers, please send by email a document containing a short CV and any information useful to evaluate your application to Nina Boulus-R=C3=B8dje (email@example.com). *The deadline is December *22nd, 2021.
The EUSSET Steering Committee will communicate its decision in January 2022.
