The ECSCW 2020 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.

CSCW is a challenging and rapidly developing area of research where the exchange of ideas and discussion of concepts with other researchers provide an effective way of gaining new insights and identifying opportunities for possible collaborations.

ECSCW 2020 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. Outcomes might include Journal special issues, blogs or new collaborations.
