Workshops offer ways to engage in discussions with other researchers in an informal setting. ECSCW 2018 invites workshop proposals addressing basic research questions, new methodologies, innovative technologies, and emerging research areas – to mention a few. The workshops should involve the attendees in working together on developing new insights, and should avoid consisting only of a series of presentations.

Workshops will take place on Monday, June 4 and Tuesday, June 5, 2018.

See the list of workshops at ECSCW 2017:

Workshops may be half-day or full-day sessions. Workshop proposals should consist of an abstract and a detailed proposal. The abstract should be no more than 150 words. The body of the proposal should be no more than 3000 words, and should include a description of the theme(s) of the workshop, the workshop activities and goals, the duration of the workshop (half or full day), the background of the organiser(s), the maximum number of participants, and the means of recruiting and selecting participants.

Accepted workshops will need to provide a short description of the workshop for publication on the conference web site containing the workshop title, names and affiliations of organisers, 150-word abstract, workshop web site, and details on position paper submission or other participation requirements

Accepted workshops may optionally provide a 2 page Workshop Program for publication in the ECSCW/EUSSET digital library. The program should contain the workshop title, 150 word abstract, objectives, participant names and a body text.

We encourage workshop organisers to create web-based resources for their workshops so that advertising, submission and organisation can be handled online.

Submissions should be sent per email at Please follow the exploratory papers template for your proposals. The template can be downloaded as RTF, MS Word or Latex.
