An outline of the ECSCW 2017 is now available. Some details are still missing and the programme is still subject to some minor changes in the next few weeks. You can find details on the Programme page.
One year ago the ECSCW community lost one of its most respected and prolific members. Dr. David Martin was a stalwart of the ECSCW community, Associate Editor of the CSCW journal, and a great friend, colleague and mentor to many.
In the 12 months that have passed, the community has come together to celebrate David’s life and work, and to ensure that his legacy will continue to be honoured.
The David B. Martin Best Paper Award has been established with the sponsorship of Xerox Research Centre Europe (where David worked for many years) to recognise a full paper accepted to ECSCW that particularly contributes to the multidisciplinary understanding of society and/or work from a CSCW perspective. The award is particularly intended for early and mid-career researchers.
We are delighted to announce that the winners of the inaugural award are Mateusz Dolata and Gerhard Schwabe (University of Zurich) for their paper “Paper practices in institutional talk: How financial advisors impress their clients”, for the original, detailed and thoroughly grounded study of an interesting work domain and problems.
The Award will be officially presented to the winning paper during ECSCW 2017 in Sheffield.
Congratulations to Mateusz and Gerhard!

The COST action CA16121 is organising a workshop co-located with ECSCW 2017 in Sheffield, UK on the 28th August 2017.
This COST workshop will focus on digital platforms seen as enabler of the collaborative economy. We will consider the relation of design and politics in the wider socio-technical context in which these platforms operate, and deepen its understanding as a CSCW phenomenon. The issues proposed for discussion are related to business models, data ownership and use, motivations driving the design of digital platforms and their impact on the various actors involved. Through a series of practical activities in small groups, we aim to encourage reflection on the use of CSCW theoretical concepts for highlighting particularities of the types of activities, cooperation, tools, or processes around using or developing these platforms. This one-day workshop will include presentations, group work and plenary discussions. In order to facilitate deep conversations, we are planning to limit the number of participants to maximum 16, including academics, researchers, graduate students and practitioners.
Our goal for the day is to consider the relation of design and politics in the wider socio-technical context in which platforms operate and understand it as a CSCW phenomenon. The afternoon’s discussions will further this aim. We will gather opinion on whether the field is sufficiently mature for a book or special issue to come out of the workshop. We will publish the contributions prior to the workshop on the workshop’s web page, together with other related materials.
More details on the workshop can be found at: https://sharingandcaringcostaction.wordpress.com/activities/digital-platforms-workshop/
