Masterclasses will offer a small number of participants the opportunity to learn about specific CSCW concepts, methods and techniques from recognised experts. The topic of a masterclass can be quite specific and the class will typically be small so to encourage in-depth discussion. These masterclasses are particularly targeted at early career researchers and PhD students, but they are open also to other participants if places are available.

Masterclasses will take place on Monday, June 4

See the list of masterclasses at ECSCW 2017:

Master classes may be for half-day or full-day sessions. Master class proposals should be no more than 3000 words, and should include a description of the theme(s) of the master class, the background of the organiser(s) and the maximum number of participants.
