Doctoral Colloquium Description

The ECSCW 2022 Doctoral Colloquium provides an opportunity for doctoral students to discuss their research in an international forum under the guidance of a panel of experienced CSCW researchers.

We invite candidates who are working broadly in the field of CSCW to apply. Candidates at any stage of the PhD process will be considered. However, the strongest candidates will be those who have a well-developed research proposal and have made some progress towards realising it (e.g. empirical findings, or a proposed conceptual framework, etc.), while still having time to benefit from advice and feedback by peers and senior colleagues. Selected candidates will be asked to give short, informal presentations during the Colloquium. These will be followed by group discussions in a friendly and constructive workshop. Each candidate can expect to have 30 minutes for presentation, questions and discussion.

Candidates accepted for the ECSCW 2022 Doctoral Colloquium will also have the opportunity to attend, free of charge, a one-day program of Masterclasses (dates and availability to be confirmed).

Accepted participants will have the opportunity to have their research overview published in the EUSSET Digital Library (
