******* Call for Submissions to Workshops and Masterclasses ************
ECSCW 2021: The 19th European Conference on Computer-Supported Cooperative Work
Zurich, Switzerland, June 7-11, 2021
Website: https://ecscw.eusset.eu/2021/
*********************************************************************
The ECSCW conference is an important venue for defining and further develop the agenda of Computer-Supported Cooperative Work research with a focus on the in-depth understanding of human practices and on the design of cooperation technologies based on such understanding.

Submissions to ECSCW 2021 are now open for workshops and masterclasses:

==== Workshops ====
Website: https://ecscw.eusset.eu/2021/workshops/

The ECSCW 2021 Workshops provide an opportunity to engage in discussions with other researchers, present and illustrate new developments on different themes within CSCW, provoke and reflect on novel perspectives and receive feedback on early ideas in a friendly and constructive manner.

ECSCW 2021 invites workshop proposals addressing basic research questions, new methodologies and approaches, innovative technologies, and emerging research areas. Workshops are good venues for involving attendees in working together to share, reflect and develop new insights. Workshops may be half-day or full-day sessions. Outcomes might include journal special issues, blogs or new collaborations. 

We encourage accepted workshop organisers to create web-based resources for their workshops so that advertising, submission and organisation can be handled online.
For inspiration, see the list of workshops at ECSCW 2020: https://ecscw.eusset.eu/2020/index.php/workshop-program-2/

Workshops submissions should:
– be no more than 3000 words, excluding references,
– include all authors names, affiliations, and contact information, an abstract (150 words) as well as a detailed proposal including a description of the theme(s),  activities and goals of the workshop, the maximum number of participants, the length of the workshops (half-day/ full-day), and the background of the organiser(s),
– specify the means of recruiting and selecting participants.
– specify any additional equipment needed (including laptops, tablets, speakers, headphones, projectors); unless explicitly confirmed by the Chairs, the additional equipment must be supplied by the workshop organisers,
– be formatted according to the ECSCW template, available in LaTeX, RTF or MS Word format,
– be sent via email to workshops2021@ecscw.eusset.eu in pdf format.

==== Masterclasses  ====
Website: https://ecscw.eusset.eu/2021/masterclasses/

Masterclasses provide the opportunity to learn about specific CSCW methods, concepts and approaches from experts in the related field within small in-depth group discussions. Masterclasses facilitate a more focused discussion on any CSCW topic, and enable organizers to do theoretical input in lectures as well as engage participants in more hands-on workshop experiences. While masterclasses are open to a broad range of participants, these are particularly targeted at early career researchers and PhD students. Masterclasses may be half-day or full-day sessions.

For inspiration, see the list of masterclasses at ECSCW 2019: https://ecscw.eusset.eu/2019/masterclasses-program/

Masterclasses submissions should:
– be no more than 1500-3000 words, excluding references,
– include all authors names, affiliations, and contact information as well as a description of the theme(s) of the master class, the background of the organiser(s), the length of the masterclass (half-day/ full-day) and the maximum number of participants,
– specify any additional equipment needed (including laptops, tablets, speakers, headphones, projectors). Unless explicitly confirmed by the Chairs, the additional equipment must be supplied by the masterclass organisers,
– be formatted according to the ECSCW2020 template, available in LaTeX, RTF or MS Word format,
– be sent in pdf format via email to workshops2021@ecscw.eusset.eu.
