ECSCW 2017 is the 15th European Conference on Computer-Supported Cooperative Work. It will be held August 28 – September 01 2017 in Sheffield (UK)
ECSCW is a series of international conferences on computer-supported cooperative work located in Europe. The conference series is affiliated with EUSSET – the European Society for Socially Embedded Technologies.
CSCW focuses on enhancing our understanding of the practices of cooperative work aiming to explore and design technological support. The ECSCW conference is an important venue for defining and further develop the agenda of CSCW research.
The ECSCW conferences are single-track conferences that contribute to developing an interdisciplinary ECSCW community. The conference format aims to facilitate critical discussion across disciplinary and national borders in the field.
An overview of earlier ECSCW conferences (and proceedings) is available from the EUSSET Digital Library.
