The Center for Human-Computer Interaction is proud to announce that it will host the 17th International conference on Computer-Supported Cooperative Work & Practice-centred computing and the Design of cooperation technologies, ECSCW 2019! The conference will take place from June 8 to June 12 2019, at the Center for HCI and the Faculty of Chemistry and Physics of Materials at Techno-Z in Salzburg.

The conference will unite young and senior researchers who are working in the field of computer-supported cooperative work and will host single-track presentation sessions that will contribute to shaping the future of practice-focused CSCW research

The ECSCW conference is an important venue for defining and further develop the agenda of CSCW research with a focus on the in-depth understanding of human practices and on the design of cooperation technologies based on such understanding. By organising the conference  at the Center for HCI, we aim this year’s conference at exploratory and hands-on work. We will have two exciting keynotes to respectively open and close our conference.

The opening keynote will be given by Friedrich Kirschner, who is a Professor for digital media and head of the Masters Program “Spiel && Objekt” at the University of Performing Arts Ernst Busch in Berlin. The closing keynote will be given by Hanne De Jaegher, philosopher of mind and cognitive science, who put forward the enactive theory of intersubjectivity called participatory sense-making: informing how we think, work, and play (basically live and love) together.
