Masterclasses submissions are not anonymous.
Masterclasses provide the opportunity to learn about specific CSCW methods, concepts, and approaches from experts in the related field within small in-depth group discussions. Masterclasses facilitate a more focused discussion on any CSCW topic and enable organizers to do theoretical input in lectures as well as engage participants in more hands-on workshop experiences. While masterclasses are open to a broad range of participants, these are particularly targeted at early career researchers and Ph.D. students. Masterclasses may be half-day or full-day sessions.
If you are submitting a masterclass on accessibility or assistive technology, please refer to the SIGACCESS guidelines on writing about disability.
For inspiration, see the list of masterclasses at ECSCW 2022: https://ecscw.eusset.eu/2022/masterclasses-overview/
Proposals will be single-blind reviewed by the Masterclasses Chairs and selected members of the ECSCW program committee. Selection will be based on the relevance of the proposed topic for ECSCW and the organizer(s) expertise. For any queries, please, do not hesitate to contact the ECSCW 2023 Masterclasses Chairs at email@example.com.
