9:00 – 17:00: WS 3: Collectively Improve the Quality of Life at Work: How and Which Data to Collect and Analyze?

Claus Bossen (University of Aarhus), Christophe Chassot (LAAS-CNRS, INSA Toulouse), Caroline Datchary (LISST, Toulouse Jean Jaurès University), Sylvie Grosjean (University of Ottawa), Shion Guha (University of Toronto), Myriam Lewkowicz (LIST3N/Tech-CICO, Troyes University of Technology) and Samir Medjiah (LAAS-CNRS, Paul Sabatier University – Toulouse 3)

Digitization of work has expanded the possibility to collect traces of activities, and AI techniques now extend the potential for analyzing this large amount of data. This phenomenon is mostly associated with forms of control and evaluation of the activity of the employees, thus generating forms of resistance. It is therefore important to think about forms of collection and processing of this data that could improve quality of life at work, by tackling information, cognitive, or communication overload. Indeed, this data could be used to improve deliberation in organizations, by providing digital representations of the activity, which is not easy to grasp in day-to-day professional work. The objective of this workshop is to gather researchers interested in discussing how data could be collected, analyzed, and discussed to improve the quality of life at work: which data? Which methods for its collection and its analysis? Under which conditions?

Tuesday, June 6

8:15: Registration opens (DIGS, 5th floor)
9:00 – 12:30: WS 1: Implementing Electronic Health Records – Cases, Concepts, Questions.

Morten Hertzum (Roskilde University), Rebecca Randell (University of Bradford), Gunnar Ellingsen (UiT Arctic University of Norway) and Miria Grisot (University of Oslo)

Website: https://mortenhertzum.dk/EHR2023.html 

Electronic health records (EHRs) support patient treatment by providing healthcare professionals with the means to order, document, and follow up on the steps taken to treat and care for each patient. EHRs are complex systems, and their implementation is a major undertaking, which has received sustained attention in computer-supported cooperative work (CSCW) and other research fields. This workshop aims to provide a forum for participants to get updated on current CSCW studies of EHR implementations and create connections with a select group of other CSCW researchers who study such implementations. Within the overall topic of EHR implementation, the workshop themes include, but are not limited to, case analyses, theoretically oriented pieces, discussion essays, stakeholder analyses, methodological reflections, and comparative pieces. The key activities at the workshop will be presentations of the participants’ position papers and thematic discussions in break-out groups.

9:00 – 17:00: WS 2: Spatial tensions in CSCW: The political and ethical challenges of scale

Airi Lampinen (Stockholm University), Chiara Rossitto (Stockholm University), Roel Roscam Abbing (Malmö University), Ann Light (Malmö University and University of Sussex), Anton Fedosov (University of Zurich) and Luigina Ciolfi (University College Cork and Lero)

Website: https://www.ifi.uzh.ch/en/zpac/ws-ecscw2023.html

This workshop advances a CSCW-perspective on how scale and place relate and how we might better understand what role scale plays in the design of tools and collaborative processes. This full-day workshop is designed for up to 20 participants, to be selected based on short position papers that relate to one or more of the workshop themes: (1) the political and ethical challenges of scale, (2) modes of organizing, infrastructuring, and governing, (3) (inter)organizational aspects, and (4) place and care. The workshop builds upon the COST Action From Sharing to Caring: Examining Socio-Technical Aspects of the Collaborative Economy that played a key role in bringing researchers together to address issues of care and scale, as well as recent workshops and interests groups at CSCW and HCI venues that have focused on issues of scale, cooperation, and place-making. Our aim with this workshop is to provide a space for the continued unfolding of the discussions sparked through these prior activities, this time with a particular focus on the political and ethical challenges of scale.

9:00 – 12:30: WS4: The digital public encounter

Michaela Schmidt (NTNU), Babak A. Farshchian (NTNU) and Sara Hofmann (University of Agder)

Website: https://digipub.idi.ntnu.no/digital-public-encounters/

The digitalization of the public sector impacts nearly all aspects of public service provision, including the interaction between citizens and public officials, also known as public encounter. This traditionally face-to-face interaction is being replaced by digital platforms, chat-bots, and self-services. Public encounters can be highly collaborative processes, e.g. in the provision of welfare services, that involve multiple stakeholders. The use of digital tools in these processes poses opportunities as well as challenges to the collaborative process and the public service provision in general. This workshop aims to bring together researchers and practitioners with a common interest in the collaborative aspects of digital public encounter, how public officials and citizens communicate and cooperate through digital tools, and the long-term impact of these technological transformations. Topics include but are not limited to communication and collaboration processes in the digital public encounter, analysis of digital tools in the public encounter and theories and case-studies on how public encounters happen. We invite researchers as well as practitioners to participate in the workshop.

Technical University of Denmark (DTU)

Masterclass description

In this master class you will experiment with the concept ‘object exchange’ as described and developed in (Korsby & Stavrianakis, 2021). As preparation you will bring an object from your field of study. It can be anything from your field, an image, a recorded sound bite, a diary, a transcript, but also a smell or. as long as it has a physical form. Prior to the workshop you must also read read the Introduction to Experimenting with Ethnography: A companion to analysis (2021) Analysis as Experimental Practice. (Ballestero & Winthereik, 2021: 1-14) and Object Exchange (Korsby & Stavrianakis, 2021: 82-93).

9:00 – 9:30: Opening and welcome
9:30 – 10:30: Keynote by David Ribes – Time for Historicism in E-CSCW

Session chair: Elena Parmiggiani

This talk calls for long-views of collaboration, across years and decades, at the scale of careers, biographies and organizational lifetimes, even nation states and global flows. At such scales we see not just tools and systems, nor even one-off transitions across them, but repeated transformations to the means of communication, coordination and collaboration, transitions managed in part, but often overtaking us, all accomplished unevenly. Historicism also calls for wider contextualization, addressed in the terms of the times. In the field we have developed a nuanced sense of the social and cultural, and to some extent political and global settings of cooperative work and play. But historical contextualization often still eludes the field, and long-historical views remain rare. There are opportunities here, for computing is not new, and has long been generating the traces that will serve as the entry points for our inquiries, and the constitutive fields that form CSCW are also not new, with old insights to be mined once again.

9:00 – 10:00: Keynote by Eivor Oborn: Digital Platforms and Societal Change

Session chair: Eric Monteiro

In this presentation, I will discuss insights around how digital platforms are influencing society and enabling social changes. Drawing on a number of empirical studies, I will approach societal changes from three perspectives, connecting to the concepts of value, trajectories and boundaries. First, I will consider unique dynamics of online communities which can integrate diverse forms of value, pulling together unique combinations of stakeholders into new online collaborative processes.  Second, I will emphasise how material places remain fundamentally important in the way digital platforms become used and the use practices that arise, as they connect with trajectories of place. Third, I will show how culturally embedded meanings, such as locally enacted understandings of fairness, can be shaped and become shaped through social media platforms, connecting to social boundaries. I will conclude by presenting a number of theoretical and practical implications that arise from this body of research.
