CSCW Asia Winter School 2019
The CSCW Asia Winter School 2019 aims to provide students and researchers from diverse academic backgrounds of the Asia-Pacific region with
a broad understanding of the topics, issues, methods and values of research in Computer-Supported Cooperative Work and Social Computing (CSCW).
We hope to promote a better understanding of CSCW research as well as scholarly networking and community formation.
We have sopts for 40 participants. For 20 students, we will be able to cover part of the travel costs and accommodation.
We encourage submissions from advanced students (Ph.D. students and M.S. students who plan to continue into a PhD program) and researchers with background in HCI and related areas. Accepted submissions will be presented as a poster in the mentoring session. Please submit the following two materials (if you are not a student, one material).
Your posters will be placed on vertical boards measuring 900mm width and 2100mm height (90 x 210 cm), which means that it is best to print out your poster in A0 size and present it in portrait orientation. Pins to put up the posters will be provided at the venue. Note that printing services are not available at the venue.
The tutorials provide an overview of CSCW and its research methods, so that researchers working on related themes or interested in CSCW topics can learn what CSCW research is about. The two tutorials will be provided by the well-established leaders in CSCW who have experiences in giving tutorials in these topics.
The mentoring/consulting session consists of poster presentations and group discussions with experienced CSCW researchers. After the poster session, we will have a consulting session where a participant can get advice from multiple mentors. The mentors will lead the discussions and can give concrete advice on how to frame the work, design an experiment, and what kind of analysis to carry out, etc. The mentors are world renowned CSCW researchers from Asia or have roots in Asia.
We will have two panels, both of which focus on the future of CSCW.
(1) “New frontier of CSCW” discusses potential themes which could be led by Asian researchers - some subtopics may be easier to put into practice in Asia.
(2) “Career development panel” features successful young Asian researchers and discuss various career path based on their experiences.
