EUSSET Early-Career Lunch (for PhDs student within their first two years)
Date: Monday, lunchtime (45 Minutes)
Costs: Free of charge. Please register during the registration process of the ECSCW.
Previous knowledge or requirements: none, but an interest in CSCW research
The acronym EUSSET (https://www.eusset.eu/) stands for European Society for Socially Embedded Technologies and is a European association of researchers interested in socially-embedded digital technologies and its impact on society. EUSSET organizes a number of conferences such as ECSCW, COOP, C&T as well as many other events such as the CSCW summer school. The EUSSET organization is based on inclusiveness, transparency, and democracy and the involved researchers focus on:
- Exploring the social situations and practices in which digital technologies are embedded,
- Developing new methods to engage people in the participatory construction of socially-embedded digital technologies, and
- Contributing to the design of future socially-embedded digital technologies.
It is always important for EUSSET to better understand the needs, challenges and demands of early-career researchers. This is the only way to steer their own activities in the right direction in the long term. With this early-career lunch, I would like to give you insights into EUSSET and its activities, to collect current challenges in conducting research in the field of socially-embedded digital technologies and to present possibilities of participating in EUSSET. I give a short lecture and the rest of the event is a joint discussion.
