COOP_WS 2014 : COOP 2014 Workshop Proposals
Call For Papers
===================== COOP 2014- CALL FOR WORKSHOP PROPOSALS =====================
11th International Conference on the Design of Cooperative Systems. Nice (France).
27-30 May 2014.
Submission Deadline for workshop proposals: 6th January 2013
COOP 2014 will be the 11th edition of the COOP conference and will take place in Nice (France), hosted by the Maison des Sciences de I’Homme et de la Société Sud Est. Historically, COOP brought together the French tradition in Cognitive Ergonomics and the European tradition of CSCW. However, the focus on COOP has now been extended to include a wider set of research questions on technologies and related issues within different social and organisational settings. The conference aims at bringing together researchers who contribute to the analysis and design of cooperative systems, their integration in organizations and other settings, and their implications for policy and decision-making.
Workshops proposals submitted to COOP 2014 may vary from an explorative space for cutting-edge developments and theoretical aspects to addressing specific themes emerging from current research. They should provide an opportunity to discuss and explore emerging areas of research on designing cooperative systems with a group of like minded researchers and practitioners. COOP conferences are known for being discussion oriented and the workshops shall share this characteristic. Topics of workshops may be any aspect of theory or practice, established concerns or new ideas in the field of the design of cooperative systems. The goal of a workshop is to share understandings and experiences, to foster research communities, to learn from each other and to envision future directions.
Workshops can be run for half or one full day, and will take place the day before the main conference, on the 27th of May 2014. Workshops will be open to their participants and to conference participants who will pay workshop registration fees. Workshops organizers will be offered the possibility to present main topics and to report results of their workshops in a special session during the main conference. It will be the organizers’ responsibility to select a panellist who can present the workshop outcomes during the main conference. The exact format of this session will be decided in concert with the workshop organisers also depending on the level of collective desire to report back.
For a sample of workshop topics from last conferences, please look at websites from previous COOP workshop programs (http://coop-2012.grenoble-inp.fr/wprogram.html).
