C&T 2019 will host workshops to spark discussion and exchange of experiences among (applied) researchers, practitioners, and professionals working in the field of communities and technologies, as well as non-academic actors - individuals as well as organizations - working with technologies to affect community relations. The workshops provide a platform to discuss, explore, and advance specific research areas of Communities & Technologies. Each workshop should provide a forum to generate new, innovative ways of thinking about the topic, or ideas that suggest promising directions for future research. Topics addressed may include (but are not limited to) theories, methodologies, artefacts in practices, emerging application areas, design innovations, strategy and organizational issues pertaining to the overall theme of the conference.

C&T Workshops will run for a half or one full day and will take place on June 3rd and 4th, 2019.

Would you like to work collaboratively to design your workshop?

We have created an online tool to allow you to work with others to collaboratively design your workshop and produce the workshop proposal.

Ideaboard allows anyone to propose a new workshop topic or join an existing proposal. Share your idea through your existing networks and social media channels to find new collaborators. Then use the online space to formulate your ideas, ask questions, and make decisions about the workshop proposal. When you’ve made all your decisions you will have all of the information you need draft the workshop proposal and submit to Communities and Technologies 2019.
