Workshop Dates: 11-12 February 2012, Seattle, WA

Position paper deadline extended to 2 December 2011.

Science and engineering are facing huge increases in data volumes and shifts toward more data-intensive work. The amount of data being produced is rapidly increasing with the development of new sensing and computer technologies, increasing use of computational simulation, and a move toward larger-scale and more interdisciplinary projects. Two workshops at CSCW will explore data-intensive collaboration from sociotechnical perspectives.

W2: Data-Intensive Collaboration in Science and Engineering

  • THEMES: Infrastructures for Big Data; Interoperability and Standards; Data-Intensive Collaboration
  • ORGANIZERS: Matthew J. Bietz, Andrea Wiggins, Mark Handel, & Cecilia Aragon

W12. Mastering Data-Intensive Collaboration through the Synergy of Human and Machine Reasoning

  • THEMES: the synergy between human and machine intelligence; larger issues surrounding analytical practices and data sharing practices
  • ORGANIZERS: Nikos Karacapilidis, Lydia Lau, Charlotte Lee, & Stefan RĂ¼ping

PARTICIPATION: The workshops will be conducted independently on consecutive days. W2 is a bit more social and organizational, and W12 is a bit more technical. It is possible to attend either workshop by itself, but we are encouraging folks to go to both to encourage cross-pollination of ideas and approaches. Each workshop has its own instructions for position papers, but there is an option to submit a single paper to both workshops. Details are available at the workshop websites.
