Key Information

Format: 2-4 pages in ACM Extended Abstracts Format
Submission: by email to futureofplatforms.cscw2016 at gmail.com

Workshop: February 27, 2016, in San Francisco, CA, USA
Website: https://futureofplatforms.wordpress.com
Networked platforms for peer-to-peer exchange and on-demand labor, along
with the practices that they foster, are attracting increasing attention
from CSCW scholars. This one‐day workshop will focus on the future of
platforms as sites of work, collaboration and trust. We will explore how
the emerging domain of research on the “sharing economy” could help advance
broader conceptual and theoretical efforts within CSCW, while also more
effectively utilizing prior work to inform research agendas and efforts in
this sub-area of CSCW and beyond. The event will consist of diverse
activities, with an emphasis on in-depth conversations, community building,
and support for establishing new collaborations. Judd Antin, Director of
Experience Research at Airbnb, will give a keynote address.

Those interested in participating should submit a 2-4 page position paper
in ACM Extended Abstracts Format that addresses the workshop theme. (For
further details: https://futureofplatforms.wordpress.com/theme/) We welcome
submissions from those interested in participating, regardless of their
perspectives and disciplines of origin. We encourage the submitters to
discuss their interest in the theme, welcoming reports of (preliminary)
empirical results, theoretically oriented pieces, as well as short
manifestos regarding next steps for working on the topic. To promote
broader participation, particularly from the industry, we offer the option
of submitting alternative materials of rough equivalence (e.g., a design
portfolio, white paper, or similar).

Selection Criteria: Submissions will be peer-reviewed with the help of our
program committee. They will be accepted based on the relevance and
development of their chosen topic, as well as their potential to contribute
to the workshop discussions and goals. Up to twenty-five participants will
be invited to participate in the workshop based on reviews of the position
papers or alternative materials. At least one author of each accepted paper
or creative work must attend the workshop. Additional authors will be
accommodated where possible (depending on the volume of submissions).
Participants will be expected to read all accepted position papers in
preparation for the workshop.

How to Submit: Submissions and questions should be directed to
futureofplatforms.cscw2016 at gmail.com on or before the submission deadline.
More details on the workshop can be found at:
https://futureofplatforms.wordpress.com/ Please submit your position paper
in PDF format by December 11th, 2015.

Archival Copies: Submitted abstracts will be archived on the workshop’s
website, but will not appear in the CSCW proceedings. Authors will maintain
all copyright over their work.
