Call: ACM CSCW 2014 Workshop on Collaboration and Coordination in the Context of Informal Care (CCCiC 2014)

ACM CSCW 2014 Workshop on Collaboration and Coordination in the Context of Informal Care (CCCiC 2014)
February 15, 2014, Baltimore, Maryland (USA)

CCCiC 2014 is a workshop at the ACM Conference on Computer Supported Cooperative Work and Social Computing. It seeks contributions on issues of design and development of systems to support coordination, communication, and collaboration between informal caregivers, their friends, family members, and health professionals, such as:

  • Integrated social support platforms to serve all relevant aspects of caregivers’ needs through adequate products and services.
  • Accessible (mobile, tactile) ICT applications to automate tasks of general caregiving when suitable.
  • Social interactive TV, also concerned with the design of innovative input devices.
  • Social media for social support, such as online communities with special focus on social support for the elderly.
  • Interoperability and interfaces among systems in use.
  • Architectures of ICT supporting caring processes.
  • Scalability and security of such systems.

Contributions are welcomed on the following themes, but not limited to:

  • Design and development of technologies to support coordination, communication, and collaboration between informal caregivers, their friends, family members, and health professionals
  • User-centred and participatory design
  • Sustainable technology development
  • Ethnographic studies and associated challenges (e.g. getting access to the field, collecting and analysing fieldwork data, etc.)
  • Cross-cultural studies
  • Ethical issues
  • Usage studies of current technological solutions for informal caregivers

Interdisciplinary participation from designers, developers, psychologists, ethnographers, etc. is appreciated. In this way, the workshop will provide an important opportunity for researchers from both academia and industry to share ideas and possibly coordinate their efforts.

DYNAMICS OF THE WORKSHOP

The workshop will start with short presentations on the position papers accepted for it. Authors will be encouraged to give demonstrations or present video prototypes of their ideas. In the last workshop session, a mind map exercise will be carried out and the topics from the presentations will be positioned on a common future roadmap. Future goals, themes, and common activities will be planned and set up.

PUBLICATION

Papers accepted and presented in the workshop will be published in the workshop proceedings, which will be edited by the workshop organisers. The proceedings will include the final versions of all accepted papers, adjusted to satisfy reviewers’ recommendations. It will be issued under an ISBN number by Vienna University of Technology on paper and made available for online consultation and archiving at the ACM Digital Library (to be confirmed).

PUBLICATION FORMAT

Participants interested should submit a position paper containing a brief overview (max. 3000 words) over the key ideas of the presentation and some information on their occupational background.

Submissions must adhere to the ACM Extended Abstract Format: http://www.sigchi.org/publications/chipubform

SUBMISSION

Papers must be submitted through the EasyChair conference system: http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=cccic2014

REVIEW PROCESS

Contributions will be peer-reviewed by members of a Program Committee (soon to be announced at http://cccic2014.wordpress.com/pc/) and selected on the basis of their quality, compliance with the workshop theme, and the extent (and diversity) of their backgrounds in design and technology.
