Masterclasses offer a small number of participants the opportunity to learn about specific CSCW concepts, methods and techniques from recognised experts. The topic of a masterclass can be quite specific, and the class will typically be small so to encourage in-depth discussion. These masterclasses are particularly targeted at early career researchers and PhD students, but they are open also to other participants if places are available.

Masterclasses will take place on the ECSCW’20 pre-conference on June 13-14th.
